The debut studio album from Fightstar
. The album is a concept album
largely based upon the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion
, as well as personal experiences of the band's members. Notable tracks from the album include "Grand Unification Pt. 1" and "Pt. 2" and "Hazy Eyes".
Greg puts Grand Unification by Fightstar as his all-time favorite album.
An awesome 2009 Rock music comedy that is horribly underrated. Known as "Pirate Radio" in the U.S., the film is about a group of Renegade Rockers in the 1960s broadcasting Rock n' Roll to the people of Britan all day, every day in a boat off the coast of Britan, when most stations only played jazz. The team is lead by an American DJ simply known as The Count (Phillip Seymour Hoffman). The music and antics attract the attention of Minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branaugh), who plans to shut them down.
Unsuprisingly the film is inspired by the pirate radio stations of the 1960s. The film was laregly panned by critics but is an overall awesome film that you should give a chance (at least) before you die.
I don't feel like watching "The Dark Knight". Let's watch "The Boat that Rocked" instead.
A theatrical movie, usually a major blockbuster, that runs past it's designated release season (i.e. summer releases playing into fall, holiday movies in January or later, etc.) to the point where only a few theaters are showing them anymore, and there are usually less than ten people in the audience, and chances are most of them already saw it during it's initial release period.
Jane: Hey you wanna catch that new superhero flick this weekend?
Bob: I don't know, the theaters will be awfully crowded since it'll be just coming out. Let's wait a month or so until it becomes a lame duck film.
The feeling after New Years
for the first part of January where you realize the holidays
are officially over and not only will you have to wait 11 months to re-experience the joy you felt during this time, you have to return to the norm
(school, work, etc.) knowing there won't be much to look forward to for a while unfortunately. Usually lasts about a week to a month, though extreme cases may not wear off until spring.
Similar to Holiday Withdrawal
Poor Tom. He's started his holiday comedown knowing Christmas is over and he has to go back to school on Monday.
To claim something is going to happen, then when it doesn't happen, just change the date and watch it not happen again. Named after the radio preacher who predicted the world would end on May 21, 2011 only to change it to October 21 later. Naturally nothing happened either time.
Guy 1: Okay I know I was wrong about zombies rising from their graves last night, so I went back to the rock where I first saw the prediction and realized it said May 16 not Mar. 16.
Guy 2: Dude just stop it. Do you know how badly you're Harold Camping right now?
An Alternative Rock
band active from 1991 to 2009, fronted by brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher. Hit the big time in 1995 with the album "(What's the Story) Morning glory" and the song "Wonderwall". Other good songs include "Supersonic", "Champagne Supernova", and "The Shock of the lightning". Sadly, brotherly love wasn't always present in the band, and the last few years became less about music and more about Liam and Noel trying to one up each other (though their last album, 2008's "Dig out your soul" was pretty good), which lead to the band's breakup in Fall 2009. Noel started his own project while the other members and Liam started the band Beady Eye.
Oasis was a good band. It's too bad Liam and Noel couldn't work out their differences too well.
A cool new animated series on MTV
(yes THAT MTV) about Mondo, a chubby 15 year old boy from New Jersey
who moves to Southern California
and struggles to fit in while trying to impress a girl named Jeena.
The series premiered on MTV on October 27, 2011, the same night Beavis and Butthead
made their glorious return to TV. Both shows are a significant departure from some of the complete shit that's been on the network in recent years.
The return of Beavis and Butthead and the premire of Good Vibes might be enough to help get MTV out of the mud and return it to it's glorious format it had in the nineties.
