Video + Editing by yours truly. Music by Fran Lorenzo
Bits and pieces from my video classes in college. Hopefully this helps me score a steady job :O
It's been a while since i've been truly struck by a band. This is my attempt at a music review:
Notes Do All the Talking
A Brief Review on Toe
This Japanese instrumental band takes all the rules of traditional rock music - and throws it out the window.
Toe takes your regular sunny day tunes, and injects it with doses of drama and grand aural theatrics without the need for words.
Unusually pleasant time signatures, beat changes, and a unique sound filled out by the sonic guitars, the melodic walking basslines, and a truly maveric mastro of a drummer are the main ingredients for this band. The spotlight shines on the beat crafting conductor, the band does an excellent job of allowing the drummer to go...totally mental. We truly love those fills and embellishments.
Don't expect any catchy hooks. Each song is an ethereal emotional experiment in time.
Music is what music does, and Toe's music does it's job of making you feel great.
I've moved residence to Multiply. Put up shop on Myspace. Even joined Facebook just a while ago because a whole shitload of people have been nagging me to.
But Livejournal. Ahhh yes. LJ always holds a special place in my cheesy nostalgic heart. No thinking about pageviews here. If you affected someone with your words, comments would bring you a fuzzy feeling inside. Don't deny it XD
The following have some esoteric bits and pieces that probably make sense ony to me. But hey, that's the reason I joined Livejournal in the first place, eh?
self-serving entries. it's a fuckin' thrill.
I'm done wrestling. I think I'll just cruise and catch a long ride for now.
It almost seems like a faint memory...How it was to completely share a life with someone.
Being a lone ranger, wolf prowler, ninja slinger is always an adventure. But this cowboy wants something more substantial. Something that could be truly great.
On my mood:
sound of rain
never fails to sooth
On DVD's I just watched:
The Fountain: I was left with a lot of questions. But the visuals were fuckin' trippy.
24 Hour Party People: awesome awesome awesome. I want to show this to my band.
Weeds: I'm on season one. Good stuff. I want some chronic sooo bad.
