ggg

The debut trailer for Fox’s upcoming David Fincher-helmedĀ GONE GIRL has made its way online, and hot damn, does it look great. Personally, I’m a massive fan of Fincher’s stuff, and the score work that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have done for Fincher’s last two films (THE SOCIAL NETWORK, which they won an Oscar for) […]

Growing up in the ’80s, my childhood was filled to the brim to double features. Whether in the local multiplex, or at the drive-in, there wasn’t a single thing that I enjoyed more than giving the box office my couple of bucks, and seeing whatever weird ass double features they programmed. I wasn’t around during […]

“I Was At Nirvana: Unplugged…” I’ve got a confession to make. When I was about 17 years old, I was at MTV’s live taping of Nirvana’s now legendary Unplugged performance.

It’s a little added bonus that you weren’t expecting, and in all honesty how I’ve come to discover & love a good majority of the music I listen to today. So this past Thursday when I went to the midnight showing […]
