Re: Once

I was also a little underwhelmed by this one to be honest, but I did really like another of the director's films, Sing Street.

Re: New music Friday - 1/17/2020

I checked out the new Trail of Dead album, even though I haven't kept up with their last few releases. It's good! Also really enjoying the Kiwi Jr. album - highly recommended to Pavement fans especially, the influence is pretty obvious. Some good tracks and nice production on the Bombay Bicycle Club...

Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF

June 12-13 is no good for me, because I'll be traveling for a wedding. The surrounding weekends probably aren't ideal either, but I could make them work. I don't know of any other conflicts right now. I'm also attending a wedding on these dates! Presumably not the same one, unless my sister is secr...

Re: Star Wars IX: Rise of Skywalker

Just saw it this morning. I guess my expectations were a little lower than usual because of the negative hype for this one, but I thought it was really very good indeed! Breathlessly exciting and packed with fun new characters and worlds (which is what I want from Star Wars really - the overall myth...

Re: I don't care about your (Checkered Past Reviews)

After more listens, Geech and ShoehornTC were my favourites, with Phil Well close behind. Also really enjoyed Evil Grin, Gizo, Glenn, Kyle and misc. owl.

The guitar sounds on that Geech song are 😍😍😍

Reminds me a little of Sonic Youth circa Murray Street

Re: Listen Carefully... (The Password Is ______ Reviews)

Let’s make 2020 the year that no one uses the phrase “genre bias” in their reviews. Yeah, alright. I found it useful shorthand when trying to get something written about every fight, but I've been reconsidering that personal challenge recently anyway (it doesn't seem to have made me get any better,...

Who else is using their new music equipment in this week's fight? Cause I sure am.
Unfortunately my strings don't currently need winding.

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I'm glad you picked up on that, that was my intention for this year's version! It is a weird project. But I'm still enjoying it so I'll keep doing it until I run out of ideas, I guess!

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I posted my 13th annual cover version of Cry Me A River by Justin Timberlake yesterday.

Re: Listen Carefully... (The Password Is ______ Reviews)

Alright it's Christmas, we've all had a few drinks. Adnama17 : a simple arrangement, but I like that you've given it a distinct rhythm with the acoustic strumming pattern. I wish the drums clicked into that rhythm a bit more as well, they're kind of back in the mix in that slightly irritating way wh...

Re: Happy holidays and 2020!

@vowlvom awww, was the robin dead? I knew they were different birds, but hadn't realized how different American and European robins looked till I looked them up just now. It got up and flew away after Rafa dropped it outside, so hopefully no harm done! I didn't realise they were different birds, th...

Re: Happy holidays and 2020!

Merry Christmas! One of my cats caught a bird for the first time this morning, and it was a Robin. He brought it into the house while we were opening presents - it's almost like he planned the whole thing... Low-key Christmas with my partner, we have family visiting over New Year. And I'm back at wo...
