23:56 - Redn1ght Talking about comedic movies, know any other-genre movies with genre-savvy main character like in Zombieland? (Even better if the tone is a bit sarcastic/snarky.
23:12 - !J.O.O.E.! The dog's dialogue was the star for me. Chuckled quite a lot at him.
23:09 - Apothecary I watched that 2 or 3 years ago, back when it was on Netflix. It's a good one. Interesting futuristic concept + humorous undertone. Good film
22:46 - !J.O.O.E.! Finally got round to watching A Boy And His Dog, which has been sitting on my hard drive for about 4 years. Quite the weird film to say the least, but quite amusing too.
21:40 - Redn1ght There's a difference between how Japanese and Koreans speak, Koreans are more toned down in a sort of mumble way. Japanese however are more clear with their sentence structuring and it usually carries over without experience.
21:38 - Netzach Sure but might as well be Korean to my ears! On the other hand, I hate my own (Swedish) accent. And I'm still a better speaker of English than most Swedes I know (imho)

I still have to review Design The Skyline for the upcoming Lords Of Metal, that will give them a reason to further whinge and whine A truly horrendous album released on the once good Victory Records label.
'Traced in Air' consists of many different layers, and in my view, listening to it more than twice is necessary to pick it apart and give your final 'judgement'. Naturally, tthis album is certainly not to everyone's tastes. There are those who despise the band's excessive use of keyboards and uplifitng melodies, which prove to be a highlight for me. I will admit that i am a big cynic fan, but 'Traced in air' is one of those albums you really have to listen to without distractions. And even then you may or may not like it. It just depends on personal taste i guess. Anyway, i believe cynic are going to get more melodic with everything they release in the future. 'Carbon-based anatomy' is a relatively brave starting point for that path...
I really like this album. It sounds soft and airy but that's appropriate given the themes they chose for their lyrics. Besides this sound is what makes them quite different from many other progressive metal bands and gives them individuality.
And those who buy the CD will get as a bonus impressive artwork made by Robert Venosa which compliments the music really well.
Interesting how the staff is picking on this whereas the atmosphere itself on TiA is just a tiny bit lighter than on Focus. A bit less intense, less sophisticated, but feels more earthly an calming than the precursor. Back then when this came out I also labelled this as a disappointment, but with time I came to like it pretty much.
