Negative Campaign

So, the McCain / Palin camp have sunk to an all time lame-o moment with Ashely Todd. Seriously, her hoax is even worse than the old Morton Downey Jr. thing. In contrast to the very lame, I present the very coolest in negative imagery...

The TRON Aesthetic: The Atari Age of German Expressionism

The magnificent scenes of heroism, transcendence and man dominating his surroundings should please the most masculinist among us, including Ayn Rand and Leni Riefenstahl:

Jeff Bridges Flynn Tron
Bruce Boxleitner Tron

Tron battle Jeff Bridges Clu

The close-ups all have that overly melodramatic silent-era quality to them. Note the way Flynn (Jeff Bridges) has Valentino eyes and Sark (David Warner) looks like a Conrad Veidt villain:

The Broadway Beat, IHOMI and Other Downtown Ghosts

Santo's liquor grand central market

Last month I found myself with quite a bit of free time, roaming Downtown L.A. during extended breaks. I was stuck on a jury and the trial was being held up for many reasons. Anyhow, I finally got truly familiar with Broadway. Ross Cutlery, the Bradbury Building, Clifton's Cafeteria, Angels Flight, La Cita, and the Grand Central Market--  all places I had been to before, but now I was finally steeping in them. The Los Angeles, Orpheum, Million Dollar, State, UA and Palace Theaters. Even with all the razing going on downtown, Broadway is still a time warp.

GUITAR HERO WORLD TOUR PREVIEWS + AMOEBA PREVIEW PARTY

Posted by Billyjam, October 25, 2008 06:00am | Post a Comment
               
 
Above is a video preview of the new Guitar Hero World Tour and its Battle of the Bands mode, which allows eight players to join online and challenge each other band-to-band to determine who is the best player. In the band modes, up to four players can jam together, online or off, as they progress through the game, and in single-player career-mode, players can jam on any of the instruments in branching venue progression, enabling them to rock out in the order of their choice. And as you know tomorrow is the official release date of this new Guitar Hero World Tour game and Amoeba is previewing it at Blake's in Berkeley tonight (Sat) with a Midnight Sale and Preview Party for the new game with three areas (Wii, PS3, and Xbox360) set up for demoing the game. More details here.  

You can check out some previews of the new Guitar Hero on the GamerTrailers website or in Popular Mechanics magazine, which pits Guitar Hero World Tour up against Rock Band 2 and Rock Revolution in a preview from E3 2008 (with video). Meanwhile, today's Los Angeles Times takes a more sobering look at the game in a story less about its technical aspects but instead focusing on the implications of its success in relation to the state of the economy, stating that, "wildly popular Guitar Hero video game could become a test of the game industry's ability to weather the broader economic storm."
