While attending the Psychostick concert on Wednesday with my podcast co-host Melissa, she chastised me for not being familiar with Adam Ant. Once I heard the song I somewhat recognized it. Had you put a gun to my head and asked me who that was, I'd have looked at you funny for putting me in such a strange dilemma. Once that past though, I wouldn't have had a shot in guessing the name of who made this song.
Anyway. Here's some upcoming dates to keep in mind:
Saturday, August 29th: The Nebulous reunion show at Twist of Lime in Metairie, LA. This is a 21 and over show with a 5 dollar cover. Come hang with your friends!.
Sunday, August 30th: The last ever brainSTATIC podcast. We will be relaunching with a re-focused show that's along the same lines, but with some changes to try to make the show a whole lot better. All specifics should be announced then.
The website is also getting a makeover, and that should be happening within the next month or two. Probably in September, however . . . things have been a bit hectic late.
Anyway, without further delay, here's Adam Ant to dance us into the weekend with red leather pants.
Here it is.
Live show this Sunday. Have a good weekend everybody.
I don't want to sound alarmist. I don't want to be that guy who denounces technology like an old man, however. . . does this seem a bit unsettling to anyone else? Should we really be trying to control living being's brains? The potential benefits for humans are there as well, but I would imagine this opens the door for something akin to a Manchurian candidate. I suppose this is where we're going, benefits and consequences alike.
From Ben, this Friday's entry features over 100 theramins. Because it's the weekend, and because why not? Have a good one, everybody.
Referencing Kill Bill or any Tarantino film is an easy way to get my attention. Forging the blade from scratch with tradition pretty much seals it. I just spend nearly 20 minutes watching guys work in a blacksmith shop and I was glued to the screen the entire time. That's Man-At-Arms for you.
I've been fascinated with games ever since my parents bought me my first NES when I was a wee lad. That system and it's vision had a profound effect on me growing up. I along with the rest of the gaming world had to pause when Nintendo's Iwata passed away recently. The people over at Ars Technica put together a collection of quotes from the late CEO. Rest in peace.
Sometimes . . . on a Monday. . . I just want to look at pretty pictures. This fits the bill. Full screen helps this one out a lot.
