Audio/Visual element leaves a lot to be desired but these things happen. You've got to make the best of a bad job.

A World Of Sound

In memory of David S Ware.
A preoccupation with nothing less than humanity's place in the cosmos.
Pure Music from a Planetary Unknown.

'Musically to go so deep that you touch upon those Universal forces.'

Rich Hall's Inventing The Indian

Redressing the balance of misrepresentation. Questioning the screen image of execrable Hollywood films. A search for the real Indian. A different perspective on the people who set foot on American soil first.

What The Future Sounded Like

From Dr Who to the Dark Side of the Moon, the members of the Electronic Music Studios used pioneering technology and ideas to create a radical new soundscape for the 20th century.

Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. It was a period of sweeping change and experimentation where art and culture participated in and reflected the wider social changes. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain.

Breaking Bad begins penultimate season

Breaking Bad returned last evening for it's fifth and final season, sort of. The crew and cast has finished filming 16 episodes. 8 of which will air this year and 8 the next. I think it's great that writer and creator Vince Gilligan is pulling the plug at the story-line's logical ending rather than extending it out into banality for commercial reasons alone.

While AMC touts this show as the greatest dramatic series ever on television, a fact that I certainly wouldn't agree with, I still find it hard to point to any TV show with better acting. The production values are certainly some of the best I have ever seen. Technically, this series is state-of-the art. Nobody does it better. In fact, last night's show had it's own website where viewers could interact with polls and short videos and such. It's ridiculous with the problems facing humanity that a fiction TV program breaks new ground with this technology while pressing issues remain untackled with this kind of tool!

Last night's episode showed that Mike is angry that Walt killed his boss Gustavo. Ed survived his accidental fall while being shaken down by Saul's "A" team for the IRS payment because of Skyler's fears. Saul wants out of his professional relationship with Walt, who in turn asserts his passive-aggressive nature. Walt and Jesse use a giant magnet to erase Gustavo's laptop in the evidence lock-up because it contains surveillance footage of them in the super-lab, which is now a smoking crater. Unfortunately, this action reveals another clue from Gustavo's personal effects.

On we go. There isn't another TV program I care about or watch on a regular basis. I'm not hopeful I'll ever find one as compelling, contemporary and consistently good as Breaking Bad.

as previously noted more than once, you are free to post your political views in the current events topic and such topics as may be started in the future where they are explicitly relevant (as, in this case, should there ever be an Eric Holder topic).

This, however, is the TV topic, with no relevant connection whatever.

Any future such posts here or in other inappropriate threads will be summarily deleted.

Thanks.

Mod hat off.
