I don’t get to go to the movies as often as I’d like to, but that doesn’t mean I can’t watch awesome flicks at home. Thank God for VOD!

35 Albums in 35 Years: 1996

In an ongoing attempt to bleed my opinions all over your computer screen, I’m selecting one album from every year that I’ve been alive that has some sort of significance to me…and then writing about it. Welcome back to 35 Albums in 35 Years.

 

failurefp1996: Failure’s Fantastic Planet

Thank God for VOD! – Grand Piano

Though I have admittedly always been much more of a music guy, I have been a devoted fan and lover of movies and film since childhood. Sparked and nurtured by weekly trips to the local video rental store and then cemented with my first big screen experience (that I remember at least), a screening of Return of the Jedi when I was 4 years old, I have been an avid moviegoer for the last 30 years. I love them. Dramas, comedies, sci-fi flicks, action movies, blockbusters, B-movies, and horror, especially horror, I watched as much as I could fit into my brain. At one point, I even aspired to be a filmmaker myself and went to film school. There’s just something about the darkened, hushed theater, the smell of popcorn wafting through the room, the clicking flicker sound of the reel as it begins to move. It’s special. It’s an event. It’s one of my favorite things to do. My wife and I used to go to the movies at least a couple of times a month.

I know I’ve mentioned how influential MTV was on my musical discoveries and acquisitions when I was a teenager growing up in west Texas, but it really did expose me to a lot of bands I may not have heard of otherwise. One of those bands was Blur.

Joup’s Friday Album: Lovage – Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By

lovageWhy don’t you go ahead and come over here and sit by the fire.  Have yourself a drink…something smooth.  Listen to the ice cubes clink around in the glass as you slink down onto the soft and plush rug on the floor.  Close your eyes and breathe deeply.  Feel the heat from the hearth on your face.  Relax.  Loosen those top buttons on your shirt and prepare yourself for an aural aphrodisiac.  It’s about to get a whole lot sexier in here.
