Here’s the second trailer for Fury, starring Brad Pitt, Shi LaBeouf, Michael Peña

Here’s the second trailer for what looks to be another very entertaining World War II movie – I seriously will never get enough of them. Fury has a pretty good cast headed up by Brad Pitt, with – one would think, LaBeouf in second place, but after his recent real life behaviour and his inability to control himself when drunk, the marketing team seems to be keeping his name out of anything they put out. It even looks like he’s been shoved to the bottom corner in the above image.

Pre-Order Your Album on IndieGoGo Now, and MAKE BEAST HEARD

Pre-Order Your Album on IndieGoGo Now, and MAKE BEAST HEARD

I don’t often get behind crowd sourced funding, except when it comes to music, and especially independent bands. I salute any band willing to put out an album today, especially our local guys. The risk is huge, and the fact is, there is no money in it. Albums are for the fans, but the fans aren’t often willing to buy. That is why I particularly crowd-funding when it comes to the recording of albums. It’s an honest model. If you like the band and you want to hear more of their stuff, or get their new album, pay for it. No umm-ing and ahhh-ing. No window shopping. Back the band you love. Get the new album in return. Which brings me to the point of this post. BEAST, one of my favourite South African bands, have 10 new songs to record, and 55 days to raise the cash. I just contributed to the recording costs by pre-ordering the album. You should do the same.

My YouTube Clip Review of ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’

My YouTube Clip Review of ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’

I watched Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes last night. This is my review, made up of YouTube clips – because what clever movie-buff stuff do you want me to say about a troop of intelligent apes waging war on the last human survivors of the San Francisco Bay area? These two clips sum up the movie pretty damn well. Although, you need to picture the second one with a lot more guns and screaming.

A Supercut of Every Quentin Tarantino Movie Death

A Supercut of Every Quentin Tarantino Movie Death

As you’d expect, this supercut is pretty long. Four minutes and twenty seconds to be exact. That’s a lot of on-screen death, but when you look at Tarantino’s movies it’s actually more surprising that this isn’t the first part of three. Since the introduction of CGI and the growing trend of robot or alien deaths instead of humans, Quentin has singlehandedly kept the theatrical blood industry in Hollywood alive. Probably.

In Celebration of Jay Adams, A Z-Boys Reunion short

In Celebration of Jay Adams, A Z-Boys Reunion short

It’s been a weird week in terms of death. I usually don’t acknowledge the deaths of celebs or well known people here. Not because I don’t care, because I refuse to compete in the ‘I’m more sad’ social media competition. Then last week I posted about Robin Williams - a death I actually felt kind of sad about, and now Jay Adams – who died on the 14th while on a surf trip in Mexico. I’m not writing this as tears roll down my face, I didn’t know the guy. Weirdly enough, I feel pretty damn good. I feel amped. And I feel guilty. Probably because I’ve been watching shorts, looking through images, and listening to interviews with Jay all morning. No matter how turbulent it was, you can’t help but wish for a life like Jay’s, or at least for an approach like his. Uncompromising in the pursuit of stoke and the things he loved. He died at the age of 53, on a surf trip. It doesn’t get better than that.
