Greetings earthlings. Lower case e on earth because the universe doesn’t know or care about us filthy apes. I’m Contingency Plan, filthy ape among you. I previously did cool things like play in bands and record albums so like most pretentious musicians, I think my opinion matters. I’m here to bore you with buzzwords and catch phrases like ‘earworm’, ‘sick riff’, ‘synergry’ and other banality. Still, if someone buys an album that they truly enjoy that they hadn’t heard of before this column, that’s a win in my book.
You may remember, Marvel Scrubs and Fanboys, that the Doctor Strange stinger set-up his presence in Thor: Ragnarok. However, thus far Mystical Tony Stark hasn’t been present in any of the promotional materials. Well, that changes with the release of the Japanese trailer.
Jesus fucking Christ, The Fifth Element is celebrating its 20th Anniversary? Man. These bones. These balls. Creaky and saggy, but such is the passage of time. Anyways. Anyways! To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the movie’s soundtrack is getting a vinyl release. For the first time ever.
I like a lot of shit about Netflix’s Luke Cage, and the fantastic soundtrack is one component of said shit. Well, I can’t be in the fucking minority, either. ‘Cause Netflix is releasing the banging soundtrack on gorgeous ass vinyl. Now, I don’t have a record player. But if I did, I would briefly consider buying this shit, before realizing I am too cheap.
File this one under what *really* should be a category around here, given the frequency with which I reference it: reasons Ian should have a record player.
So. This trailer is damn old. And despite really liking it, I didn’t post it. Which explains why our own Eduardo Pluto hasn’t seen it. Yeah, I’m ignoring the fact that he probably only comes here when I link him, because he’s swine and I suck. But yeah! So this looks fucking bonkers. Patrick Stewart as a Nazi, versus Punks. It’s, it’s incredible.
I am the perfect patient for such a convergence of dork. iPhone user? Check. Metal listener? Check. Mash-up sucker? Check.
Man. A niche of a niche of a niche. If vinyls are for a select few, then gaming vinyls are for an even more cloistered segmentation of the population. Which I’m all for, frankly. Fetishize your fetishes. Lord knows I do.
Monument Valley is objectively awesome. One of the reasons it is so objectively awesome is its soundtrack, which complimented the wonderful visuals, and atmosphere.
