MST3K - Laserblast

Aug 13, 2019

Puppet aliens leave a literal arm cannon around for a fan of AOR and Southern Rock to find and, subsequently, go crazy with and start shooting cars and planes and stuff.

MonsterVision - Maximum Overdrive

Aug 13, 2019

A serious, cautionary tale about the dangers of autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence.

That’s not the synopsis I would give for Maximum Overdrive. This weird Stephen King-directed film is quite the production, that’s for sure. πŸš›πŸš›

I’m going through Don Broco’s albums today and Monday while I do house stuff. They’re touring with Trash Boat, but Trash Boat won’t be at any of the shows near me. If there was a sad raccoon emoji to rate these albums with, I’d use that. Instead, I’ll use the regular raccoon emoji.

Don Broco - Technology

Loud, crystal clear, very dancy, and a great selection of some pretty deep, interesting topics in the lyrics. The U2-inspired “Got To Be You“ is amazing. 🦝🦝🦝🦝🦝

Don Broco - Automatic

Big, loud, energetic, and just plain awesome. 🦝🦝🦝🦝

Don Broco - Priorities

A good intro to what this band will eventually become. A bit more mellow than the newer entries, still great. 🦝🦝🦝🦝

Also, from Coworker Recommendation Time:

Bon Iver - i,i

Now sure I’ve ever listened to Bon Iver before but they remind me of TV On The Radio a bit. I think this would make for a good eveningtime/rainy day album/long road trip album for me, so it gets πŸ“ΊπŸ“ΊπŸ“ΊπŸ“Ί.

A few albums that Google Play Music said were like Trash Boat. I will rate them with 🦝 emoji:

The Gospel Youth - Thoughtless

6 track album with enough screaming, melodies, and plenty of emo-y/pop punk-y goodness to get me going this morning. 🦝🦝🦝

TheCityIsOurs - Low

A bit more screamo than I typically go for, but I don’t hate it. Would be good background music for an aggressive house cleaning. Yes, I’m old. 🦝🦝

Bad Heaven Ltd. - Strength

A little too lo-fi and shoegaze-y for my tastes. 🦝

MonsterVision - The Hidden II

Aug 10, 2019

Symbiotes run amok in this film that is also half of the first The Hidden movie. The commentary was good, the film was all right. A few definite gross-out scenes that I’m glad I was not eating during.

Sometimes I forget what media I’ve seen/read/listened to and what I thought of it. Hopefully this will help me remember.
