    ★★★½

    "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco
    This ain't no fooling around"

    By 1980, the foundation for everything that was once the punk essence would be formed, with its splintering into different subsections like new wave or post-punk, and a sharp divide between the east and west coast, making a point as to where your loyalty stands by which bands you listen to. Times Square captures that essence by breaking down the fundamentals of presenting a story like this…

    Live from the Space Stage: A HALYX Story

    ★★★★

    Defunctland has time and time again proved itself to be on a league of its own in terms of creating content for a free platform like YouTube, and has over time shaped itself as one of the most professional and informative channels one can find, especially given its dedication towards a niche topic you wouldn't think you'd care about until you heard the story behind it: theme parks, and the abandoned, destroyed, or fondly-remembered attractions and sights one could have…

    ★★★

    Cited by friends and fans as "The Last Angry Gay Man", James Robert Baker became a notorious figure in the growing subculture of transgressive fiction, making a name for himself with his hyper-sexual and hyper-violent tales of the gay community, interspersed with sex, pop culture, anarchistic disdain at Reagan-era politics, and all done in tightly-wound timebombs of novels that have since achieved cult status. Before that, however, Baker attended UCLA for the sake of studying film, and while this would…

    ★★★★

    Existing like an almost ethereal myth in the counterculture zeitgeist, Alejandro Jodorowsky has endured an unconventional legacy within the "midnite-movie" crowd for his strange, violent, and magical visions that defy easy categorization, the perfect method to counteract sleep-deprivation and enhance any trips to another state of mind. Jodorowsky's film output remains microscopic compared to his peers and the length of his career, but that's mainly because the man has preoccupied with numerous roles amidst his spiritual journeys, building up a…

    (NOTE: THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE ENTIRE SERIES EPISODE-BY-EPISODE. AS SUCH, SPOILERS ARE PRESENT ALL-AROUND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).

    Few series have had their legacy defined by mystique and complete obliqueness like Serial Experiment Lain, delving into complex themes like the nature of reality, identity, and communication just as the internet’s interconnected stream of information began taking the form it takes today. Forming a trifecta of late 90’s anime mindfucks alongside Neon Genesis Evangelion and Revolutionary Girl Utena, a…

    I miss the old Asuka
    Straight from the Go Asuka
    Chop up the soul Asuka
    Set on her goals Asuka
    I hate the new Asuka
    The bad mood Asuka
    The always rude Asuka
    Spaz in the news Asuka
    I miss the sweet Asuka
    Chop up the beats Asuka
    I gotta say, at that time
    I'd like to meet Asuka
    See, I invented Asuka
    It wasn't any Asukas
    And now I look and look around
    And there's so…
