The Future of Piano

I think you will enjoy this one!

Something to Do: Movies

The winner this week has to be The Shape of Water, a story by Guillermo del Toro that seems to be an evolution of one of the characters from his Hellboy films. I am looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen.

Something to watch; Discs

I didn’t see anything in western releases, Anime has Kiddy Girl-AND, the sequel to Kiddy Grade. Taking place 25 years later, the galaxy is once more on the brink of chaos, and two new heroines need to step forward to save it. Squid Girl is also being released this week, silly fun for the aquatically inclined.

New Wagakki Band

This week there is a new CD being released by the Wagakki Band which includes the song Synchronicity (the first track), posted just a few weeks ago. The album is a Best Of collection mixed with a few new songs created for Hana Hanako’s recent solo project. The second track is Tengaku from their original 2013 album.

Something to Do: Movies

There are a number of choices this weekend, but top of the list in my mind is Pixar’s Coco, which just looks like too much fun to miss. It actually starts playing on Wednesday, to take advantage of the long holiday weekend. John Cusack’s new film Singularity could be interesting, but the trailer makes me think I have already seen this movie through a few dozen earlier iterations. I will have to see the documentary Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars, but I don’t think it requires the big screen to make it worthwhile, so I will catch it when it streams. Firangi on the other hand may need the larger venue, so I might have to check that one out this weekend as well.

Something to Watch: Discs

Topping the list, Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets was an instant classic that didn’t do well in the US, since almost no one here was familiar with the French comic it was based on. We get another French film this week as well in the form of the animation Leap!, original title Ballerina. Birth of the Dragon is also out this week, and while it isn’t genre, The Hitman’s Bodyguard looks like a fun film. The Korean action-thriller The Villainess also hits the shelves this time around, if you haven’t seen it, now is your chance. TV brings us a couple of comedy favorites in the form of The Librarians, Season 3 and Red Dwarf: XII

More Man With A Mission

The first one is the newest track from Man With A Mission, My Hero was posted 12 days ago and has over a million views. The second track is 2015s Raise Your Flag, the song that first made me sit up and realize this band had some serious stories to tell the world, and not just a lot of first class music.

This is the second DC Universe movie in a row I am excited about (at least I don’t think there has been another since Wonder Woman), I have been looking forward to Justice League for over a year.

More New PolkadotStingray

Just a few days ago PolkadotStingray uploaded another track from their new album; the song is called Surrender and in just those few days it has received over 185,000 views. The second track, Mizuho Dance, was posted on October 25th, and has collected just under 1,140,000 views to date. I am not sure if that one is part of the new album, since it was put together in honor of the Mizuho Financial Group’s Jump Project, but it was too good a tune not to share it with everyone.

There are some great films playing this weekend, but almost all of them seem to be at film festivals. The latest iteration of Murder on the Orient Express looks like the best option to me, but while the book was a masterpiece and the cast is world class, it really isn’t science fiction or even fantasy. I think I will probably spend the weekend binging on season two of Dirk Gently and other equally silly things like the latest Red Dwarf Season 12 episode.
