Power and corruption on the silver screen

The game of politics is often about the quest for, and manipulation of, power. It’s a story as old as human civilization. This might be why politics tends to lend itself to good storytelling. Movies have often sought spectacle and narrative among the ranks of political movies.

"Unfriended"

In a world where the internet rules our lives and we can go longer without food than without a Wi-Fi connection, “Unfriended” hit a relevant social chord.

Even the unique camera work contributed to making this a current, relatable horror flick.

Director Levan Gabriadze created a high-quality movie with a low budget by letting the entire movie play out through a video conference call on a single computer screen.

Rest in peace, Mumford & Sons

It is with great sorrow that we must report to you that Mumford & Sons’ musical integrity passed away on March 9, 2015.

It had a brief but intensely successful life, earning the band four Billboard Awards and two Grammys.

Their musical integrity was first made known to the world through their 2009 debut album. Which was born after the heyday of bluegrass but stayed true to its roots, honoring its predecessors while making friends on modern pop and alternative charts.

Ebbtide Book Club

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for a good book to read that’s a little off the beaten path. It feels like young adult (YA) literature options are getting more and more limited. Authors seem to either be one of the big five (J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Stephanie Meyers, Rick Riordan) or are claiming that their book is the next “Hunger Games,” “Twilight,” etc.

“Disparations” by Peine Perdue

Peine Perdue is a French synth pop duo comprised of Stephane Argillet and Coco Gallo, whose album “Disparations” is currently being distributed through the Seattle-based label Medical Records. Like many groups of their ilk, their music (at least on this album) features repetitive drum loops which back a mix of gritty, ethereal synthesizers and funk grooves.

"Kitty" by, Kitty

From tape-loop, ambient textures to jungle breakbeats, Austin-based band Kitty unleashes their first ever set of recordings from the 1990s with this new self-titled album.

Furious 7

With all the fury of high octane, NOS (nitrous oxide) souped up engines, and vengeance, the latest installment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise comes barreling into theaters in time to kick off the early summer blockbuster season.
