Last night I tried desperately to nap during the end of TRON: Legacy, but IMAX sound is cranked up to level 11 all day every day. The funny thing is that I actually fell asleep around the same part in the first movie. All I remember is that they were on that fucking flower tram thing and it was taking them forever to reach the portal. I want to say it was worth it for the Daft Punk clubbin’ scenes, but I’m not really sure. All Disney had to do was cut all the useless dialog. Less talking, moar light cycling.
Anyhow, I’ve finished putting together my starter blogroll. All of the links are music related except my bros at Twenty Sided and Chocolate Hammer. If you’re a nerd/videogame enthusiast, there’s a very good chance you’ll find plenty of interesting things on their blogs.
Since I don’t like making a post without including music, here’s some pretty chill weekend tunes by Chalk and Numbers. I’m a sucker for surf music with a sort of retro feel. Even though these guys are from Brooklyn, their songs sound like they were recorded in a little studio near a warm beach. Perfect listening for a cold, rainy weekend. The songs below are nice and mellow, but you can check out some more upbeat stuff at their bandcamp page.
