It's like if Homeland was a little bit worse and more like 24, but still kinda like Homeland.

Sorry to be the dude who takes an innocent thread in this direction but:  If I hated the torture porn politics and overall jingoism of 24, will I have the same issues with Jack Ryan?  I'm halfway interested because one of the LOST creators is a showrunner, but I'm worried it might be "that" kind of show.  Thoughts?

Thanks for posting Mopper.
WTF is up with the whistling fans?
I would be so pissed if I was beside someone whistling through the majority of Red House.

I read somewhere that the show started late. Which is mo real excuse for those strung-out Germans to act like assholes.

Phil described when they played Seastones in Fall '74 Germans reacted by whistling loudly.  It's their way of booing.
Reminds me of this gem, albeit from Vienna, but close....

Surprised Mopper hasn't posted this one yet.  Either way nice tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Electric Ladyland:


In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the Jimi Hendrix Experience masterpiece Electric Ladyland, Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, are releasing the Deluxe Edition box set on November 9. Available as either a 3CD/1 Blu-ray set or a 6LP/1 Blu-ray set, both packages include the original double album, now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes. For the LP set, Grundman prepared an all analog direct to disc vinyl transfer of the album, preserving the authenticity. Also included is Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents demos and studio outtakes from this period in Hendrix’s career, plus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix’s original engineer Eddie Kramer. This marks the first and only time this has been done with a Hendrix studio album, and gives listeners the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, part of Experience Hendrix’s Dagger Records official bootleg series, is another exclusive component. The never before released recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland. The Blu-ray also includes the acclaimed, feature length documentary At Last… The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland.

Lastly, Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition includes a full color, 48-page book containing Jimi’s handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never before published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself.

Pretty sweet show, lots of great music and amusing banter from Jimi and Noel.

This Ghost of Tsushima looks pretty sick

yeah should be pretty sweet. PS4 exclusive FTW.

ps, a few gaming notes:
Rockstar announced that the online compnent for Red DEad Redemption2 will go live a month post lanch just like GTA online did.
--i'm actually leaning to grabbing RDR2 now... just dying for a new game. Though  i'm also thinking i might pick up COD and play it for 2 weeks before that then trade it in, lol.

ALso, Battlefront 2 should be implementing a full fledged Squad system akin to Battlefield's next week.
As much as this was requested by the community originally its sorta whatevs now, but it definitely is going to turn attack/defend balance on its head since players will be able to spawn directly into action instead of traversing long distances from a spawn... should be weird, lol.
---and GRevous/ Geonosis map release still on trck for October. OB1 in Nov.

personal/random-- i get Absolver dlc next week, w00t!
ESO has a new update that jsut went to PTS and basically destroys all Light Armor MAgic build for pvp, lol. they added a cast time to shields which is about the stupidest thing theve done in 4 years. If it goes to the live server it will definitely cost them subs.

You’re the first person I’ve known to not like the Man in the High Castle. Do you dislike other PK Dick stories?

Just to even further expand your horizons, I also think the TV Man in the High Castle is terrible. So badly written I could barely make it through the few episodes I did. But then, when it comes to filmed entertainment, I have opinions.

As for PKD, I've read every one of his very many novels. I love him. Man in the High Castle is one of his best.

Meanwhile, the three part British show A Very English Scandal is great. Hugh Grant is better than he's ever been, Ben Whishaw is fantastic, it's written by Russell Davies (the writer behind the the first 4 seasons of the modern Doctor Who, and much else in British television), and directed by Stephen Frears, a long time film director you might best know from The Grifters and High Fidelity.

In retrospect, tracking an album a week before moving across country wasn’t the smartest move but oh well

Yeah, but it was SO MUCH FUN.
Up to Me is such a great track. It's hard to imagine it being left off an album. But that says a lot about how good Blood on the Tracks was/is.
