RIP, Chris Squire

One of the great ones passed away earlier this month. I first started listening to Yes back in high school and while it’s been somewhat sporadic of late, those early albums (and to some degree, even the 80s stuff that finally came closer to making them a household name for a bit) were very near and dear.

Rest in peace, master of bass……

Propaganda….

     Posted on Tue ,23/06/2015 by candybowl

for some reason their songs have been going through my head lately – interesting article. I was really into this band back in the day….this concert clip is kinda weird – they rarely played much live and despite their sound being heavy on keys, there aren’t any on stage? Must be playing to recordings – certainly have enough percussion guys though!

Hobbes

– you can BET Hobbes is one-of-a-kind – there aren’t any licensed stuff toys from Calvin and Hobbes, and there won’t ever be, either. What a wonderful story!

Seriously….Dark.

     Posted on Sun ,14/06/2015 by candybowl

So, a couple years ago I got the Black Mirror 2-season series on DVD from Scarecrow and watched them. All of these shows are very, very dark and take a Twilight Zone anthology approach with a bit of Max Headroom (‘twenty minutes into the future’) and then really take a dark, dark turn. Tales from the Darkside – eat your heart out.

At that time, there was one more episode done – ‘White Christmas‘ that I hadn’t watched yet (it came out a few months after the series season 2) – finally saw it today. This has to be among the darkest of all the episodes, with a double-twist ending that hits you right between the eyes. Boom. Not for the easily depressed, or those that believe all these dadburn dystopian shows lately are actually LEADING us to those same dystopias! This is just really messed up stuff.

Anyway, for those who dare, i found it on YT (linked below, with Portuguese subtitles) or you might be able to actually watch it on demand from UK Channel 4.

good luck.
