22:44 - Erik M. Hahaha. I wondered why his older self (F. Murray Abraham) didn't look at all like his younger self. That skiing scene was awesome btw. Best Wes Anderson movie hands down if you ask me. Haven't seen all of them though.
22:42 - Zaphod I meant to say fabulous in the way Monsieur Gustav would say it.
22:41 - Erik M. Holy shit, anyone else get a totally Watershed vibe when listening to Elysian Woes? Great song. Not sure what to think of the album though (just on my 2nd spin now).
22:39 - Nimlot Boyhood is the best thing in cinemas right now.
22:39 - Erik M. Zaphod, of course I've already seen it. The VERY few actually interesting movies that are being made I most of the time go and watch in the cinema. Wouldn't call it fabulous, but certainly a great and unique movie.
22:37 - Ilham It's not like much changed really. There has always been a lot of crap playing in cinemas. You just have to go to the right theatres and choose wisely. Just like for music.
22:36 - Zaphod Go watch The Grand Budapest Hotel. It's fabulous.
Two weeks ago, the following news was posted on the Ayreon website:
"There's not been much news from us lately, but don't let that fool you. There has been a bustle of feverish activity going on behind the scenes here at the Electric Castle. With this update from ArjenLucassen.com we're excited to officially announce the details of Arjen's new project, Guilt Machine.
The Line-up will be:
Arjen Lucassen: instruments, backing vocals
Jasper Steverlinck (Arid): vocals
Chris Maitland (ex-Porcupine Tree): drums
Lori Linstruth (ex-Stream Of Passion): lead guitar
As Ayreon fans have come to expect from Arjen, the music of Guilt Machine ranges from dark and heavy to atmospheric and melancholic. But Guilt Machine introduces some new twists as well, particularly when it comes to the vocals. Rather than putting together an ensemble cast of vocalists from the prog, rock and metal scene, Arjen has enlisted the talents of a single alternative Belgian rock vocalist, Jasper Steverlinck.
Currently halfway through the album... Not saying it's bad or anything, but I think I was expecting too much
"Green And Cream" sounds better out of the first three tracks, the previous two doesn't seem dynamic enough. I really hope I'm wrong though
on the other hand, vocalist is quite talented indeed and has succeeded in conveying a lot of emotion
