War of the Worlds on TNT. Seems like for a cable channel doing movies over the holidays, sure, you might not get the whole movie like you would on HBO, or on DVD/Blu-ray, whatever, but hey, it's still not that bad.

The Mars Volta: Dyslexicon

Nature red in tooth and claw
I haven't seemed to keep my powder dry
I always seem to hear it in your laughter

The second that I fell in love
With the handle of your revolver
I always seem to hear it in your laughter

I beg to you, a second chance
With a dried white rose to Bethlehem
I always seem to hear it in your laughter

Am I the valency that you deny?

In the time of the sixth sun
We are cattle to the prod
I burn this dictionary
Because that's my dyslexicon

When I collapse and bury all the things uncounsciously I hear
Cackling in chloroform this specter will ensnare
I always seem to hear it in your laughter

A braided strand from childrens mane
Acquired with impunity
I always seem to hear it in your laughter

The things you say to me are deaf in tongue
I always seem to hear it in your laughter

Am I the valency that you deny?

In the time of the sixth sun
We are cattle to the prod
I burn this dictionary
Because that's my dyslexicon

You've never tasted heaven
Stood the mother filled with grief
In the wake of monday mourning
(Finds) a culprit void of breath with...

If fate is your endearment
Through pistil and through stem
In the way of monday mourning
A culprit void of breath with...

And on the seventh day you will come to find
That my prism is not color blind
In death's mosaic spirit
A culprit void of breath with guile

That's why I repent
That's why I go under...

That's why I repent
That's why I go under...

That's why I repent and go under

In the time of the sixth sun
We are cattle to the prod
I burn this dictionary
Because that's my dyslexicon

In the time of the sixth sun
We are cattle to the prod
I burn this dictionary
Because that's my dyslexicon

That's my dyslexicon

The latest video from "Tribe Twelve"

In case you don't know what that is. Tribe Twelve is an offshoot of the Slenderman monster mythos. Most people know "MarbleHornets" better. Basically they're docu-style short episodes that tell a story that builds and builds, and often features creepy scares with a very strange looking monster that people call "Slender Man"

You can check out Tribe Twelve here;

and Marble Hornets here;

Good stuff.

Believer - Transhuman



It's their most listenable album to date. There are no signature songs, in my opinion. But the entire album is more "musical" than their past efforts. I recommend it.

Wasn't expecting to hear metal-ish music after seeing that album cover!

Been listening to a few classics from Queen recently.

I actually have been on the lookout for new music and have been browsing a lot of these 'top 100' lists of the best rock, hip hop and so on, that's come out in recent years (2009 to present) but nothings grabbing me atm.

Here's a track by Anywhere, new (2012) band of Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta). The song turns from good to awesome near the third minute.

Anywhere: Rosa Rugosa

I've just started playing Symphony - great indie game from GOG.
Each level is a creation from any song you choose - really need something with a strong presence and a good pace.

I've been playing everything from Jethro Tull to Linkin Park.
Some music really gives the game good choreography and you find yourself dancing along with your ship just like the enemies, while other songs make the enemies seem very random. I couldn't find a good example on youtube, and to be honest, I'm a better player than the videos I've seen.

I'm wondering if I can grab a video of me playing to Grabbag and post it here.

I recommend this game for a great interactive music experience.
I disagree about the reviewer's dislike of the menus. The menus are easy to navigate as you pick your song, and customize your weaponry. You get 4 weapons mounted to your ship. The differences in your weapons are as different as changing the instrumental line up in a band - pretty cool things happen when you have a couple subwoofers, or a nice mix of different weapons... There are leaderboards posted online for known mp3 files, and I'm aleady on them for some pretty popular songs.

Watching:

Saw The Adventures of Tintin the other night. The CG was jaw-dropping throughout (we really have reached the 'uncanny vally' in terms of realism) and the movie itself wasn't bad either - as long as you don't take it too seriously. Reminded me a little of Indiana Jones in regards to the chase scenes.

Also watched The Raid.

Holy shit what a film!

Haven't seen a decent action flick like this since Hard Boiled. Superbly put together film and such a simple concept. The fight choreography was really entertaining - kind of had flashes of Old Boy in there with the knife fights.

Highly recommended!

Listening to:

Been listening to a lot of Aesop Rock's None Shall Pass and just bought ACDC's High Voltage. Enjoying both.

Also been listening to (and here is where I lose all credibility) some old Brandy tracks. Think she's quite underrated.

Watched Green Lantern. Not as bad as I expected. Some fairly ropey CG aside, it was decent enough and has me intrigued at the prospect of the Justice League film that's in the works.

Also picked up Looper. What can I say? brilliantly put together with some nice twists. It's the second decent sci-fi I've seen this year; the other being Sunshine which was ace.

Watching the entire X-Files series from start to finish. Half way through season three now. Damn good show, and even though I think I've seen every episode, I'm totally enjoying it, and noticing a lot of stuff I never knew until I went marathon style - like how Mulder is always loosing, misplacing, and breaking his big dorkey mobile phone

Agreed. Though I haven't read the GN, I was eagerly anticipating the release of Part 2. I bought Part 1 back in September, watched it once and refused to watch it again until Part 2 was released. Part 2 came out, I watched them back to back, then watched them both again two days later. Absolutely thrilling!

Yeah, I'm getting everyone I know to watch this with me and by now I think I must have seen the entire Dark Knight Returns like 8 times already.
The animation, the music, the acting, it all works perfectly.

If you haven't read the GN then I can only recommend that you do; the most interesting part of this adaptation is how the makers managed to tell the story without all the internal monologues, instead weaving parts of them into actual dialogue (the banter between Batman and Joker in the Tunnel is a great example of this).

Just watched the trailer for The Dark Knight Returns after reading the above comments.

I like how they portray a slightly less adept Superman in the second.

Will be picking both of these up.

Grabbed a copy of Muses The Second Law album. Must say I've quite enjoyed what I've heard. This leaked awhile back and there was a lot of backlash for them moving towards a 'dubstep' style, but those tracks aside it's pretty damn solid.

Ordered. Had to import as there hasn't been a release over here.

Also picked up Superman Batman Public Enemies and Doom. Public Enemies arrived already and I've had a watch. Not great if I'm honest. The art style is horrid and the 3D effects for the ships are terrible. Major redeeming feature though was the metallo fight with Superman in the graveyard - very fun to watch!

I like how they tweaked his powers to emulate the T-1000 as I've only really seen him previously as a big plodding robot.

Just got done with The Dark Knight Returns Part I.

Absolutely sublime!

In many respects I enjoyed this more than The Dark Knight Rises as it portrayed an older, more gritty but less adapt Batman, who relied a lot less on his physical abilities and more on strategy - I know this is one of his staples in general but it was better communicated as an older batman.

I liked the more gruff voice actor they got in as well. I'm a big fan of Kevin Conroy (he is the perfect younger batman) but I don't think his voice would have worked as well.

This will certanly demand a re-watch at some point.

Excited to see part II now.

Sounds like a mishmash of The Hand That Feeds and a guitar solo off The Fragile, not very inspiring.
The real problem is with Reznor's vocals (and lyrics) though; I can't stand his juvenile 'tortured' whine anymore and I wished he'd stick to instrumental tracks.

The only cool part is the Nagra E tape recorder in the video.
