Ghost in the Shell Official Trailer 1

vlcsnap-2016-11-19-14h30m20s353

The first full trailer for the live action Ghost in the Shell Movie is out, and it looks pretty good. I am not sure how faithful they are going to be to the source material, but they certainly nailed the visuals.

The Ghost in the Shell universe is pretty large, which can make getting into it a bit intimidating for newcomers. Here is a video to help you make sense of the franchise. If you are looking for a simple recommendation on how to get started, I would suggest first viewing the original 1995 movie as an introduction, then moving into the 2002 TV series Stand Alone Complex. Both are separate though, and could be viewed in the opposite order.



“Ghost in the Shell” Teaser Trailer

I was initially kinda down on the live action Ghost in the Shell movie. The 2002 anime tv series is one of my favorites, and I did not really see how they were going to be able to do it justice. The new teaser trailer gives me a little bit of hope that this could actually be good. It seems like they nailed the atmosphere. Lets hope they get the rest of it right.



‘Minecraft: The Story of Mojang’ is now free to watch

Well this was an cool coincidence. I just mentioned the Minecraft Documentary two days ago, and now it is available for free on YouTube. The documentary was Produced by 2 Player Productions and funded by Kickstarter. I first watched it when it was shown for free on Xbox Live, but have since purchased it to support them. It is a pretty great documentary that is on par with Indie Game: The Movie, although maybe not as entertaining as The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. Although Markus Persson is about 100x more likeable then Billy Mitchell.



Top 3 Albums of 2013

albums

Yeah, I know it is only October. Here are my top 3 albums of the year, in no particular order:

BT – ‘A Song Across Wires’

BT is a Grammy-nominated American music producer, composer, audio technician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter. Mixmag writes, “As the follow up to his Grammy-nominated ‘These Hopeful Machines’, expectations are bound to be high for BT’s ninth album. But considering he’s composed film scores for The Fast And The Furious and the Oscar-winning Monster, produced for Sting, Bowie and Madonna and worked with Tori Amos, it’s no surprise that he lives up to them. An innovative mix of trance, electro and progressive, with a just a touch of dubstep (which shouldn’t annoy the purists too much), ‘A Song Across Wires’ does just what he intended it to do: embrace dance’s new mainstream popularity. From ‘Letting Go’ to ‘Lifeline’ it’s a steady stream of uplifting tracks and emotive vocals – but that’s not to say it’s in any way predictable.”

Camo & Krooked – ‘Zeitgeist’

Camo & Krooked are a Drum & Bass duo from Vienna, Austria. EDMTunes wrote, “Old-school disco fused with energetic DnB and a few carefully placed dubstep movements allows users to enjoy a signature C&K feeling with a new twist. The best part about the whole thing? Each track blends perfectly into the next, making the album-listening experience just that: a true experience from start to finish.”

Feed Me – ‘Calamari Tuesday’

Jonathan Gooch, more commonly known by his stage names Feed Me and Spor, is a drum and bass, dubstep, and electro house producer and DJ. YourEDM writes, “His sound has such a unique personality thanks to his signature blend of energetic electro-house and devastating dubstep; when you hear Feed Me, you know it’s Feed Me. In my mind, what Feed Me did with Calamari Tuesday is akin to what Kendrick Lamar did with his now infamous verse on ‘Control;’ he threw down a gauntlet challenging everyone in the scene to step up their game and get on his level because otherwise he’s going to leave them in the dust when he launches into the stratosphere”
