Audio: Brand New Original Dubstep! + Important Notice From Audio

Audio here,
                    I know I've been teasing you guys with the promise of a new DnB tune, but as you might know, I've been in in the process of setting up new software, a new DJ rig, and making arrangements for an upcoming trip of mine. To tell the truth, I'm currently trying to upgrade to Logic 9, but things haven;t been going smoothly.

But enough jibber-jabber! During my process of creating this new DnB track, I felt like experimenting with a little Dubstep, and ended up finishing the Dubstep before the DnB! So the good news is that my new project, 'Two-Thirds Omega' is officially underway, with an experimental Dubstep tune I'm going to share with you right now, and a DnB song almost finished, waiting in the wings. Expect a lot more original music coming from me in the coming months.

I do have one more important announcement, I will be away for three weeks starting tomorrow (May 10th) because I'm flying to China to train Kung-Fu with the Shaolin monks. I've been doing martial arts nearly all my life, and I'm nearing my Kung-Fu black belt test, and it's a well known rite of passage for a Kung-Fu student to visit the birth place of Kung-Fu and bring back techniques and secrets for his/her school. This does mean that I will not be posting any blog entries whatsoever until June 1, as I will be devoting this trip solely for my training. I appreciate your understanding.

Visua: Thor Opening

Hey guys!

Thor is coming out tomorrow, and by then I should have a review. I honestly don't know what to expect because the trailers didn't make it seem all that great, but the first views are out and they have given pretty decent reviews. I think Chris Hemsworth was a great choice for the role and I can't wait to see Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.

I hear there is something after the credits, so watch for that!

Do you think it will be good?

Visua: Movie Spotlight - Cemetery Junction

Hey there!

I remember when I went to London, England in spring '10, I saw posters of 'Cemetery Junction' (2010) in many places on the walls of the Underground stations. The young stylish males, the pretty redhead and Ricky Gervais all taking up most of the poster, it caught my eye as it being a new, persona-driven, proper Brit independent film with a certain style to it, and indeed it was. So there I am, no more than two days ago, scrolling through my bloated PVR hard drive full of movies from the movie channel, and I land on 'Cemetery Junction'. I click Play.

Now this isn't a review because I don't want to analyze it, but instead shed light on its triumphs. I can honestly say this is now a film I very much like, one that I score well, and one that I recommend. It's written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant also, so it will not disappoint. I won't dwell on anything for too long, I'll keep things short and sweet.

A Quick Summary: Cemetery Junction follows 3 friends--Bruce [The rebel] (Tom Hughes), Freddie [The ambitious] (Christian Cooke), and Snork [The Funnyman] (Jack Doolan)-- who are getting sick and tired of their little, English, working-class town. The 1970s is a time of freedom and they aren't getting a piece of it. Being foolish children for such a long time, they begin to grow up and bring meaning into their life, without losing who they really are.

First off this movie had just such great characters that their persona's seems like they could all be parts of a normal human being, so there is a little something for everyone. My favorite character was Bruce, he was just, almost as if he were straight out of 'The Outsiders' but not as greasy. Another thing I loved about this movie was the soundtrack, good old classic '70s hits. Led Zeppelin, T. Rex, Elton John, Mott the Hoople, Slade. My favorite scene is when Snork gets up on stage and rocks out to Slade's 'Cum On Feel the Noize". I can also say I might be in love with the actress who played Julie [Felicity Jones] was just so pretty and humble, something we don't see often in North American cinema. Matthew Goode was in it which was great. The humor was all around pretty awesome and quite British. Lastly I love the theme, even though its been done before, I just love the idea of freedom. Be young. Be free. Be somebody.

I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend it!

Visua's Rating: **** out of *****

Thanks for reading!
