Still alive and posting relevant things! The only redeeming feature for me out of the “Xbox Reveal” event, earlier today ….
Fuck yeah! One of my favourite J-rock bands is back after more than a year with a brand new album!
“Tomoshibi” by LAST ALLIANCE
The above track is from the new album “Seventh Sense”, being released next week. That sweet combination of bass/rhythm guitar and drums is so rhythmic and kickass, complementing Anzai’s vocals nicely and I’m hoping the album overall sounds just as great.
Not forgetting the awesome music video above of the band being shown at various gigs throughout the years (11 years since they formed a band), goofing around and symbolising friendship; it’s one of their best videos to date!
Rah! Next week needs to be here nao!
Just finished watching this with the girlfriend in glorious HD, on my birthday and Disney have yet again, another winner on their hands!
A solid 10/10
Many epic gaming references from the 80/90′s that brought back a rush of nostalgic, arcade moments from back in the day which happened to be fused with an original, adventure-type story which was popping with immense visual detail (I so wanted to nom Sugar Rush land ) and that truly turned out to be a remarkable combination.
A must watch for any gamer and I demand a sequel now Disney!
I gave up thinking something like this would see the light of day
Just late last night, I was watching him talking about Mercury and the Messenger spacecraft on “The Sky at Night” and then later this Sunday afternoon, I hear/see the sad and unfortunate news that he passed away. Unbelievable.
He was the main reason why I (and many, many others no doubt) gained a vivid interest in astronomy due to getting hooked on watching his “The Sky at Night” TV series since the late 80′s. He was an amazing and knowledgeable researcher, a talented person that knew how to captivate you with the fun journeys/mysteries of space while making it easy to digest and understand what was out there in the vast openness, even with his fast diction/monocled warbles.
I also enjoyed watching him as the “GamesMaster” on Channel 4 in the early 90′s. When I first laid eyes on him in this, I couldn’t comprehend that he would present himself on such a show and help gamers with their woes but it put a cheeky grin on my face as he pulled off the role wonderfully with his entertaining, witty quips.
No doubt he was a man of many talents. May he rest in peace, in the stars
Well that came out of the blue!
The girlfriend let me know about this as she saw an advert on the telly just now and she knows that I adore the original 1982 animation
Gotta say I’m warm and fuzzy after watching this trailer with the classic hand-drawn, cell animation but at the same time, it has huge potential for ruining my childhood after nearly three decades!
I truly hope it doesn’t come this Christmas Day on Channel 4 and now it’s got me thinking; is the sequel going to have a song as great as “Walking in the Air” from the original animation? An impressive feat if the sequel manages somehow to pull it off!
Now long now till all is revealed!
