poster postin'

I got some pics from my friend NateDawg of our show, like 4 weeks ago. they are awesome! I couldn't have imagined they'd come out this well. anyways, I'll try and get a few of 'em up in the coming days.

other than that, I was given an awesome link by my graphic-designing uncle for this cool flash website (a promo website for Adobe InDesign). sendin' it on to you all. its worth a look!

i, human

finally saw I, Robot tonight. i'll be brutally honest: i had no desire to see this movie. being a bit of an Asimov fan and hearing how 'well' they stuck to the book this movie is loosely based on I was never drawn to see this movie, both in the theater and/or to rent it. but it was free, and its entertainment so I steeled myself for the worse and watched it. my review? not bad. not great, but not bad, and so it passes the Mick Jones Patented Movie Review critique.

while not directly following the plot of book that shares its name (though that book is merely a compilation of short stories) nor to the other Asimov book that shares much of its inspiration, The Caves of Steel, and despite the fact that they failed to including the way cool mass transit system described in that book (a system of varying speed, moving sidewalks) the movie did a decent job of capturing much of the essence of Asimov's writings as well as entertaining us with action, suspense, quick banter, and some nifty tech advances of the near future. Most of all I was pleased with the fact that the movie was able to capture a glimmer of the philosophical and sociological aspects of Asimov's work. Though he created great stories and came up with fantastic new ideas within the science fiction realm, the real genius of his was to take his science fiction and use it to discuss human kind, civilization, our societies, and the human mind, thus making the outlandish and fantastical real and tangible, relating men and women of the future to the similar issues we face now.

if you get a chance at least rent the movie, give a chance, and then go read some Asimov books. obviously I'd reccommend I, Robot as a good read; its easy, with short stories and quick conclusions, its a good starter for the Asimov world of robots. From there I'd suggest diving into his Robot series with Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun. that reminds me I need to buy those two and re-read them. they were good!

well, until next time, keep high and dry!

crazy go nuts!

well, happy post-holidays to all of ya! its been a good X-mas/New Years. lots of food, fun and good times! got a few sites to share with you:

this one's an awesome mix of flash with embedded video. way cool! somebody finally got a clue about what flash was really made for (it was originally created as a video creation program!). just be sure to use the english version of the site, unless you wanna brush up on that french you learned way back in high school.

this is a way cool article @ www.relevantmagazine.com on how we should be interacting with one another as Christians. no more of the 'church-talk.'

here's a great article that'll get your brain wheels turnin'. when's the last time you thought that the anti-consumerism fad that has been so popular amongst youth and young adults in America is really just driving American consumerism even further? this little article will have you wondering just how much of an impact Fight Club had on fighting American consumerism.

here's some pretty sweet holiday card designs. check 'em out. maybe you'll get one from me next year...if you're good!

this one's a pretty sweet flash site. nice use of the designer's face! the heavy breathing part's pretty funny! oh yeah, and his eyes are a little freaky. but you'll like it, trust me!

last but on least is a one kick-butt drum site! this one features music clips and vids of just about every great drummer ever! be sure to check out all the videos, there are some awesome solos! and Jesse would kill me if I didn't mention that Neil Pert's got some good stuff on the site as well. check it out.

oh, for all you Sunday Morning Drive fans out there, our next show is this coming Friday, January 7th @ Cooper'stown, 7pm. We'll be playing four, 20 minute sets down in the 'dungeon' in between the bands outside. Be sure to come by and hear us play, even if you can't stay the whole time. we'd all love to see you! oh, and we've got a special guest with us, violinist Tammy McGavock, so don't miss the fun!
