As usual, I contributed to HEAVEmedia’s Friday media round-up, this time with a few links to some supplemental Breaking Bad stuff worth watching before tonight’s finale. Amy Dittmeier also shares a video I’ve enjoyed this week, and there’s some chat about Zelda Week, so it’s a pretty fun round-up for the week. You can check it out by clicking here.
Title: Don Jon MPAA Rating: R // Directed by: Joseph Gordon-Levitt // Written by: Joseph Gordon-Levitt // Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza Rating: Review by: Bill Jones It’s hard to deny the star power of Joseph Gordon-Levitt right now. People love him for his acting talents, be they employed as an integral character in Christopher Nolan’s Inception, in a heartfelt comedic turn alongside Seth Rogen in 50/50 or doing a wonderful Bruce Willis impression in Looper. So it’s not much of a surprise that Relativity Media was willing to indulge the actor in Don Jon, a Continue reading Don Jon’s flashes of brilliance overshadowed by miscues [Theatrical Review]
I’m obviously a little late on posting this one, but I figured it was worthwhile nonetheless. I contributed to HEAVEmedia’s Friday media round-up Friday, Sept. 13, with a blurb on Protest the Hero’s upcoming album, Volition. It’s really good, and you should check it out. You can read my opinion on it by clicking here.
And closing out my preview coverage for Riot Fest Chicago, I did a short Q&A with Mr. Riot, the anonymous guy behind the Riot Fest twitter feed. New Noise Magazine posted it for free, so check it out by clicking here.
I had yet another fun interview with Brendan Kelly, discussing last year’s Slapstick reunion at Riot Fest, this year’s Broadways reunion and, of course, The Lawrence Arms. It ran it print with New Noise Magazine, but with the festival on the horizon for Chicago, the mag also recently tossed it up online for free. So check it out by clicking here.
I contributed to this week’s Friday media round-up over at HEAVEmedia. I wrote something up on the first few episodes of The Newsroom’s second season. You can check it out by clicking here.
So I didn’t realize this was going to go up for free online, in addition to running in New Noise Magazine in print, but it did, so enjoy it — my interview with Andrew W.K. to help preview Riot Fest in Chicago. You can check it out by clicking here.
I contributed to HEAVEmedia’s Aug. 30 Friday Media Round-Up with a blurb on the awesome Larry and His Flask, focusing on the band’s new album, By the Lamplight. You can check it out by clicking here.
OK, this doesn’t fall under one of the categories in which I routinely post, but it’s something I simply had to share. I had the chance to write a preview of Riot Fest Chicago for New Noise Magazine, and they did something for the lead-in page of which I wholeheartedly approve. Just thought it looked really cool and I wanted to share it. Got the OK from the mag, but you’ll have to pick up Issue No. 4 of New Noise if you want to read the accompanying interviews. It’s a PDF, though, so I think it’ll take an extra Continue reading Andrew W.K. New Noise page
I contributed to the HEAVEmedia Friday Media Round-Up on Aug. 23 but have been a little behind in getting it posted here. I still highly recommend checking it out, though, for my write-up on Knife That Guy, an interesting iOS game. Also, check out Dom’s thing at the bottom about Nic Cage’s commercials for pachinko.
