Hollywood's Favorite Font

Hollywood’s Favorite Font

Please bear with me while I rant about something that I find particularly lame. Historically speaking, movie posters have usually been formulaic and cliché to some degree. They generally reflect the cultural trends, marketing fads and design standards of the day. Typography plays a major role in advertising a movie, and it’s interesting to see...
Summerific (2006)

Summerific (2006)

Seven years ago, I put together an 80 minute continuous mix of all kinds of random music I was listening to at the time. Spanning half a dozen genres, it was carefully designed to capture the essence of summertime fun, leisure and relaxation. Stupidly, while upgrading to a new Mac I somehow managed to lose...
And Now, Our Long-Distance Dedication

And Now, Our Long-Distance Dedication

Many of us grew up listening to American Top 40 with Casey Kasem on Sundays. I loved that show, and spent many a Sunday building elaborate LEGO creations while eagerly waiting to find out which song had claimed the #1 spot that week. It was theoretically three hours long, but with commercials it ended up...
Update on Da Brat

Update on Da Brat

As most of our readers know, from time to time we like to take a moment to appreciate and check in on Da Brat. I’m pleased to report that Brat, a.k.a. Shawntae Harris, has recently resurfaced after several years of incarceration for striking a woman in the face with a rum bottle. Yes folks, America’s...

The Stones, Aerosmith, and Breathless

  When it comes to music, I can be a bit nostalgic at times, and with the ease of finding most music online at iTunes, I can immediately think of a song from my past that has gotten stuck in my head, search, find it, and then be listening to it within minutes.   Coming from...
Review: "Lonerism"

Review: “Lonerism”

We haven’t had any music reviews show up here in a while, and I’m compelled to share that Lonerism, the new Tame Impala album is probably the best new music I’ve heard all year (with the possible exception of the latest from Beach House). That statement is kind of funny in itself, since there are...
A Trip to the Library with JC Pierric

A Trip to the Library with JC Pierric

Most people don’t realize this, but there’s a huge amount of really cool music out there known as production library stuff. In much the same way that companies and designers use stock photography, there are entire libraries of commercial music libraries out there that directors and producers have used for movies, film, TV commercials, and...

The Riot

I realize it may be little off-topic, but I wanted to share this. The next time you find yourself drifting off behind the wheel at 2 AM, you’ll want to pump the song at the link below at full volume. The beat from this relatively hard-to-find track has been sampled by the Chemical Brothers and...

Jaime should have a special appreciation for this, since we both spent a lot of time listening to a certain Bollywood music compilation a few years back. I just found out that it’s available via Netflix, too.
