In random order:
- neko case . middle cyclone
- the von bondies . chancer
- dan auerbach . heartbroken, in disrepair
- john frusciante . unreachable
- the heartless bastards . be so happy
- …and you will know us by the trail of dead . ascending
Thoughts? What am I missing?
The new Neko Case album is excellent. The new Alela Diane album is fantastic. The new Dan Auerbach album is pretty good, but the song “Heartbroken, In Disrepair” is kickass. Listen.
Watchmen (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was ok but not great. I didn’t read the comic so I can’t judge how well they translated the story, but I do know they forgot one cardinal rule: make it fit the medium. 2h43m was just too long…it’s hard to sustain interest and excitement over nearly three hours with a story that dense and jumpy.
Innis & Gunn oak-aged beer is very tasty indeed.
