Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

I keep getting that sort of vibe, too. I'm sure Mark's narrative is unique, but the theme sounds a bit in that vein. It also brings up Ex Machina and Her a bit, too. I really can't wait for this book! Avoiding these songs so far is not fun. I am barely master of my own domain here. All three of tho...

Re: The Star Wars Thread (SOLO SPOILERS Inside)

I feel like the Darth Maul appearance could potentially setup a cameo of Han on Tatooine in either an Obi-Wan or Boba Fett movie. Darth Maul has a pretty good role in the cartoon universe, so I’m glad they finally had the guts to cinematically show that he survived the events of Episode 1. I mainly...

Re: The Star Wars Thread (SOLO SPOILERS Inside)

Thought it was really well put together, I liked all the performances, especially Glover who got the Billy Dee voice down pat and managed to put his own personality on it as well (Ehrenreich also did as good a job as possible, I think), and the action set-pieces were all great. I'm not so hot on the...

Re: Lost In Vegas reacts to Alter Bridge

Those guys are definitely suitable Alter Bridge fans, "epic" used on multiple occasions.

Also actually really cool to see people react to that song for the first time, takes me back to my first listen of that album way back when :cloud9

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

So apparently Napalm is Hoobastank's label too. They have 2 singles on there for an upcoming album - I got a little excited to check them out since I liked their old stuff even if I never listen to it anymore. I was super disappointed, it doesn't even sound like the same band anymore. Oh man that t...

Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

Side note - anyone reckon that the opening is a nod to Holst's Mars (the Bringer of War)?



Not an identical drum beat but drew my attention anyway.

Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

Dark Trip and Flying Monkeys are two of my favourite Tremonti songs, so this is good news!

Still can't believe they didn't like Jesus Christ Pose, though. That's a paddlin'.

Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

I like it plenty! Not what I expected at all. Opens with something you might expect from Year of the Tiger. Love the verse riff and the pre-chorus. Ending is cool.

Re: The Movie Thread

I'll say this about the Star-Lord bit - I liked it because it was one of the few moments in the film where the emotion behind it felt real and human (the other successful moments being Quill and Gamorra again, and Iron Man with Spidey as he went to dust). It was clumsily executed but I appreciated t...

Re: The Movie Thread

It was okay, but was expecting a little more after the rave reviews from fans. The supposed big consequences look far from permanent.

Will say that Spider-Man is the best thing about the MCU.

Re: The Fitness Thread

First run in an absurdly long time today. Have moved to a new area, so wasn't sure of the best routes and didn't want to be running next to car fumes and whatnot. Decided to try going up a trail on a hill, and oh my word death can't come soon enough right now. That was with rest periods as well.

Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

After many more listens, most of the bridge is fine, it's just the transition into it that jars so much, particularly coming after the fun post-chorus/pre-verse riff. Doubly weird as it then segues back into the chorus really nicely. But yeah, doesn't spoil my enjoyment of the rest of the song at all.
