Most everyone knows that I'm in Hampton Roads at the moment but going home in a few days. Well was at the Wave last week and going to be there again tonight for anyone that is interested in seeing me before i go back to TN. Hope to see a few faces i didnt last week.
Went w/ Emily to see Wolverine/X-Men Origins today. Was oretty good and didnt disapoint but what caught my attention. what grabbed me was one of the trailers before the movie. It's a new movie directed by Peter Jackson called District 9. It totally caught me by suprise. I am curious as hell and knowing Jackson's record w/ movies this should be very good!
So I was watching the late night talk show Craig Ferguson as I usually do and Brittany Murphy was on (clueless, Just Married, ect...) and noticed the strangest thing about her. She was talking w/ a british accent. Now this wouldnt be wierd if it wasnt for the fact that she was brought up in New Jersey! Why the fuck are you talking in a posh british accent when your from fucking New Jersey.
Before I start I just have to recomend this album to jdavyd and starplucker you will both love it!
ladyg0th and I first heard about the beginnings of this project almost 5 years ago and after such a long wait this band finally has put out an album Death to Analog. For anyonne not familiar w/ the band Julien-K (that would be most of you) it is a side project of Amir and Ryan of the band Orgy w/ some help from select others such as Chester Bennington from Linkoln Park. I have really been looking forward to this album since it was advertised to be more synth/dance oriented and not the unfortunate direction of mainstream rock that Orgy decided to go w/ thier latest release Punk Static Paranioa which I didn't really enjoy. You can really hear influences and similarities from other artists on each track. the synth structures throughout the album are to be described as epic and amazing. I can see why some of this album took a while as there are many intricacies and little details to notice all over the place. The drums also go back to an older style like the first Orgy album Candyass being more synthy and fun. Ryan has taken the vocal duties for this project and has taken his major influences from Jay Gordon (lead singer or Orgy) and was also coached by Chester (lead singer of Linkoln Park) which totally shows. Amir shines as always w/ his unique styl of synth guitar and use of a various array of sounds custom made for each track. Each track seems to embody it's own personality so I have decided to breack down each track, but to save space on your friends page I will put it behind a cut.
Overall this album was well worth the wait. I can only hope that they don't take that long for a follow-up record. As a bonus ladyg0th and I get to see them play as the headliner w/ The Birthday Massacre and M.S.I. in Nashville for thier opening date on thier tour mid June right after our trip to Hampton Roads.
