Hauntingly Beautiful

This is a few weeks old, but I thought it was still worth posting. Despite the fact that I didn’t really like the mime (though I understand the ASL aspect impressed some) I was completely amazed by this performance of Chandelier on SNL. I am not all that familiar with Sia, nevertheless I was completely taken by the pure emotion in her voice.  I was kinda sad to find out the album version of this song is not as soulful.  I’ve also watched a few performances of this song since and found that like the original they are a little less intimate.  Seems like Sia has a knack for letting the performers shine while she takes a back seat.  However in this SNL performance she hit the nail on the head and gives us a hauntingly beautiful version of her hit.  Do yourself a favor and watch it. You won’t regret it.

A Creative Catastrophe: Timey Wimey

AvatarJoe.jpgIt’s been a tough transition to 50 to 60 hour work weeks. I have had little time to dedicate to the GeekyFaucet project, and the little time I have had I’ve used to share with my family and friends. As I sit here now, I have a half edited podcast and a half baked blog post, and sadly no idea when I’ll get either of them done.

High Five/Low Five: Arrow: Season 1 (2012)

20140806-111630-40590662.jpgOver the weekend I got the itch to re-watch the pilot episode of the popular WB series “Arrow”.  As a fan of the show, I have maintained that the first season is near flawless.  It stands as one of the best examples of an episodic approach at live action comic book hero story telling.  In this edition of the High Five/Low Five I’ll look at the what made the first season great, and what I could have gone without.

I usually go on and on about how sequels are inferior to their predecessors.  Rarely does a film prove me wrong.  This spring I am hopeful, however.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier has a solid chance of being that film.
