  1. I got mine over the weekend and listened to it a few days ago. Enjoyed it a fair amount on my first impression, very much so looking forward to spending some more time with it! Well worth the wait for sure!
  2. This definitely has my interest, but cost is a huge factor. Hospital releases are usually pretty expensive as is.
  3. I'm real excited to here that. I love Carpenter's work and I feel like they'll do something interesting there.
  4. PO Soon: TWIN PEAKS

    They could also hold back X copies of some releases in the event something gets damaged / goes missing.
  5. This has my interest, but I'm going to wait until I hear it before making a decision on purchasing it.
  6. It's a bit of a departure from the sound of the EP for sure. I'm a sucker for 80s synth, this is right up my alley.
  7. Had to listen to the single first and missed out on the clear, haha. Red it is!
  8. It was pretty amazing all around. London was a bit of a disappointment, but I think that was more to do with high expectations than anything else. The Scandinavian countries (Norway, Denmark & Sweden) were incredible. Some of the most gorgeous cities I've ever seen.
  9. I was surprised by how much I saved by cutting back. I knew I spent a fair amount, but it really added up. Guess this is what people feel like when they quit drinking or smoking
  10. I'm sure I'll be more into it at some point, but I'm probably not going to hit my peak ever again. My bubble has burst, haha. Not completely related : does anyone have a good recommendation on where to order cheap mailers? I'm sure options have been posted dozens of times, but I'm too lazy to look. I'm hoping to clear out a lot of clutter in the next few months.
  11. I'm with you guys about slowing down. I cut down to purchasing absolute essentials due to saving for a trip and now that I'm back, I'm hoping to stay that way. I also think that I'm finding it less fulfilling that it used to be now as well, so I was more going through the motions than actually purchasing something I was looking forward to enjoying.
  12. PO: The National - Sleep Well Beast

    Mine showed up today and I'm really not feeling the first disc. The back half was much better, but still kind of feels like The National Lite. I'm not opposed to a band experimenting with their sound, I just really don't think the direction they went in worked worked for me. This is based one one listen though. It might grow on me and I'm more than willing to give it a more chances. Trouble never quite connected with me either, but I've grown to like it more than I initially did.
  13. Hoping they'll have this when I see them next month. Another Live 7" is a harder sell for me to order by itself.

    ^ that Ustalost album is excellent
  15. PO Soon: TWIN PEAKS

    Yeah, I think it'd be hard to digest all of this in a binge. Having a week to think about it helped a lot for me.
  16. Black Metal Discussion Thread

    I thought this was awesome, thanks for sharing!
  17. I like this a lot more. Still has nothing on anything off 1989, but it's not bad.

    I really hope that the 4th one is the actual last one too. I don't feel like they have anything new to show us. Watched Popcorn yesterday and thought it was light and fun (much like it's namesake). Not the worst way to burn 90 minutes on Sunday.

    I disliked TD season 2 so much that I was happy when it didn't get renewed right off the bat. Casting Mahershala Ali, Saulnier directing and David Milch writing an episode are all very big pluses going into season 3. I finally got around to watching [REC]4 last night and it was pretty mediocre. I really liked 1 and 2, but thought 3 was a major misstep. 4 was a little more back on track, it mainly just seemed pretty generic zombie movie compared to the first few.

    Had time for a few movies last night and one earlier this week. It Comes At Night - I was a little gutted I couldn't see this in the theater, but the timing didn't work out. I remember it getting mostly positive responses in here too. I liked it quite a bit. I don't think the survival / cabin fever / trust thing is anything new, the movie just executed it very well. Direction was great, acting was mostly strong and it was paced perfectly for what it was doing. I could see the ending being a bit divisive, but I liked it quite a bit. Behind the Mask - I have no idea how this slipped under my radar for 10 years. It was a very clever and funny take on things from the slasher's perspective. It was a tad predictable, though that didn't take any enjoyment out of it. I'm not sure if it has a ton of re-watch value for me, but I am quite happy I watched it. Hatchet - Decided I needed to watch a proper slasher after Behind the Mask. I thought this was pretty fun and was full of enjoyable kills. It made for a nice "I'm a little drunk on a Friday night" watch. Not completely horror related, but I'm sure people in this thread will be interested. Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room, Blue Ruin) is directing the next season of True Detective. Which ramps my interest up from pretty much zero to a fair amount.
  21. Nice! Prehistoricisms is such an awesome album and I kept slacking on picking it up initially.
  22. PO SOON : Rosetta - UTOPIOID

    Awesome that they're doing a name your price for digital. Going to give it a listen this afternoon.

    I saw that this morning and meant to share and spaced it. There aren't that many horror greats left

    Barrett wasn't involved. I was mainly mentioning him because of how I think him and Wingard do their best work on new material together. I think if you can get over it being an adaptation of something you love and watch it at face value, you're enjoyment will go a lot further. That's what I've seen too. I probably wouldn't have watched it if I didn't like the director, just due to having no real connection past that. Supposedly, Wingard is interested in doing another one if Netflix finds it worthwhile.

    Watched Death Note tonight and mostly liked it. I'm also not familiar with the source material at all, so I had no investment on that end, which I'm guessing helped a lot. The plot is a bit of a mess, but I think Wingard's direction and style made up for that a lot. I'd probably rewatch it if someone wanted to, but I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it again. Some cool kills and decent music didn't hurt either. I do think Wingard work is much stronger when it's original material and he's working with Barrett though. I'm hoping those two loop back together and start doing original movies again.
