Django Unchained

I just finished watching Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” and all I can say is why didn’t I see it sooner. Tarantino who is known for his extreme violence and gore in his movies does not spare a moment of it in this film. There are scenes where blood just leaps from the body. Jamie Foxx,…

Death at a Funeral

British comedies have always been a uneven affair with me. A lot of them just fall flat when I expect it to be so much better, for example: “A Fish called Wanda”. I usually check out reviews or IMDB before watching a British comedy to make sure it is really worth watching. I recently watched…

Dredd

When I first heard about a new Judge Dredd film coming out, I was skeptical about it. I thought it was going to be another typical cliche action movie from Hollywood so I skipped watching it last year. But after so many people telling me how good it was, I decided to check it out…

Morgan M. Morgansen’s Date with Destiny

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been on quite a momentous roll over the past few years. He had major supporting roles in “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Inception“. He has also starred in several independent films this year that have garnered critical praise including the sci-fi noir film “Looper“. He has his own online production company entitled,…

Chet Baker- Born To Be Blue

I’ve been listening a lot to Chet Baker recently and discovered “Born to be Blue” which completely blew me away. The song is in the standard 12-bar blues  but played on a piano and has Baker singing in his well-know whispery and soft-voiced way. Baker’s voice is melancholy which only heightens the image of lost…

The Neighbourhood- Sweater Weather

I first became of The Neighbourhood when I saw them open for Paul Banks last year. Their music instantly caught my attention; the hip hop feel mixed with indie rock made me really interested in listening to their music. I checked out their first EP and was not surprised by how good it was. “Sweater…

TV On the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe is a man of many talents. To name a few: musician, cartoonist, director,  and actor. His new project entitled Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band is a wonderful addition to his discography.

Into It. Over It.- Proper

  I am a late listener to Into It. Over It. This band came my way after I discovered their music randomly online. The concept that emo music was still being made interested me. I thought that emo died in 2009. Yet, there are a bunch of bands still making music that is defined as…

Drake- Worst Behavior

Drake has always gone past the boundaries of hip hop and rap. His music has always been at its most revealing and vulnerable. Drake’s honesty has become a staple that many rappers either criticize or emulate. This honesty which can be a rare thing in hip hop shows just how open a musician can be…

Top 10 Albums of 2013

This has been a year of many great discoveries in music and great quality albums. Choosing the top ten of the year took a lot of time.  I had to spend many hours searching for the absolute best that have been in constant rotation on my iPod/iPhone and other mobile devices. I came up with…

Childish Gambino- 3005

Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino has grown as both a rapper and an actor in the past few years. His performance on the cult tv show “Community” and his standup shows has helped to cement his acting career. As Childish Gambino, he has moved past the playful rapping into mature territory on his new album…

Kanye West- Bound 2

You have to give it to Kanye. The man always knows how to entertain the masses. This new video of “Bound 2” from Yeezus, has Kanye on a motorcycle with Kim Kardashian in tow. The video is so completely over the top and hilarious but so epic in its absolute absurdity. The visuals are stunning…
