The Sweet Life Society: ElectoSwing

The Sweet Life Society is an ElectroSwing band out of Italy who have done a number of fun songs, I figured I would share a few of them. The first is 2012’s My Sound, which is an effervesant tune that keeps bubbling up into your head when you least expect it, and it may even be an original tune. That would be unusual, since most ElectroSwing songs start off being a classic Swing tune which then gets sampled and remixed. The second song is 2014’s Prima di ogni prima, probably also original and definately infectuous. To finish it off we have their 2017 song Hard On; that album took a sharp turn away from ElectroSwing and went face first into Ska. Enjoy!

Smash and Grab

Smash and Grab is an excellent little Sci-Fi short animation from Pixar; Enjoy!

What the Tech Industry Has Learned from Linus Torvalds

What the Tech Industry Has Learned from Linus Torvalds was a TEDx event, a local self-organized event where x = independently organized TED event. This particular one was put together by Jim Zemlin, who is the Executive Director of the Linux Foundation. He knows better than most just what Linus has contributed to the world, and why it works so well. Prepare to be amazed.

PMJ: Pinky and the Brain

The Post Modern Jukebox invited singer/dancer/actor Emily Goglia to join them for a cover of the theme song to Pinky And The Brain, and the results were amazing. They spun it into the realm of the Torch Singers and added a bit of live action dialog in a bar/club setting that was absolutely definitive for the series, while still setting it apart. Watch and enjoy!

Bowie Explains the Internet

In 1999, everyone knew what the internet was, and what it could do for them. But almost no-one understood its potential and power. David Bowie was one of the few who clearly saw it, and this interview was more prophetic than almost anyone at the time understood, except for David himself.

PerfumeƗdocomo: FUTURE-EXPERIMENT VOL.04

WITH GREAT POWER: THE STAN LEE STORY

If you missed this 2010 film, now might be the time to go see it or add it to your personal collection. He will be missed! I had to include the piece on him by Looper as well, it is a great tribute.

New Mirai Trailer

Mamoru Hosoda’s latest film, Mirai will be in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 29th courtesy of GKIDS. They have just released another trailer for it, and I wanted to share it here. If the creators name sounds familiar but you’re not sure why, some of his previous works included The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Wolf Children, and Summer Wars.

GOOD NIGHT BABY

GOOD NIGHT BABY

Yes, this is basically a Reebok commercial, but it did give media exposure to a rather tasty musical artist to pull that off. Pop sadly rather than Rock, her voice has enough power to overcome that deficit in style. I look forward to seeing what she creates in the future.

New Captain Marvel trailer!

The new Captain Marvel trailer is absolutely amazing, so I had to share it here. This woman is subtle like a brick wall, and the story brings us back to the beginning. I can’t wait for this one, it will get us focused for the next decade of films from the MCU!
