Reviews in Real-Time: Tusk

So the “real-time” that it took me to watch this movie was ’til opening day. I purchased the tickets (ok, the wife did), got my drum of soda, sat down and proceeded to watch about 15 minutes of previews for horror movies that i will not see because i don’t like scary movies. So why am I here to watch this “horror” movie? Because it’s the new film “Tusk” by Kevin Smith and somehow I knew i would end up loving this movie.

Quick Back Story: The story is taken from Kevin Smith’s podcast (SModcast #259), Kevin and Scott Mosier pretty much create the plot of the story out of a Canadian story Kevin read about an old man looking to rent out a room in his home in exchange, the renter must for a certain amount of time each day wear Walrus suit and act like a Walrus so the old man can relive a time when he was stranded with a Walrus and befriended him. The movie is about a podcaster, played by Justin Long, who is in search of the weird and the interesting for his show. A failed guest opportunity in Canada takes him to find a lonely old man, played by Michael Parks, with a lot of amazing stories to tell but quickly things take a turn.

Back to the Review: I came to watch this movie because as a fellow podcaster, I love how stories and ideas can come out of conversations and this conversation resurrected the movie making career of Kevin Smith who had just retired from moving making. The film is another Kevin Smith classic but with a horror-ish twist. For those who listen to the SModcast, there any many references to the podcast and to the SModcast universe such as Kevin’s other podcast hosted by Ralph Garman, “Hollywood Babble-On“. It has a lot of inside jokes for the true SModcast fan!

On a Side Note: I am a BIG fan of Ralph Garman starting off with his comedic talent on the Kevin & Bean Morning show on KROQ 106.7FM in L.A. He is a great character actor and i’m sure you’ve seen or heard him in a bunch of movies and TV shows such as.. Red State, A Million Ways To Die in the West, The Joe Schmoe Show, voices on the Family Guy and a bunch more. Check out his iMDb page if you don’t believe me.

Back to the Review: I can babble-on all day about the movie and Kevin and Ralph because i’m a Smod-Geek. Kevin is one of my many inspirations for starting my own podcast and just letting my creativity and “whimsy” fly.

So in Closing: I loved this movie!! The actors were great! Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman.. they all made this movie come to life! Not to mention the writing and directing of Kevin Smith was awesome. I truly enjoyed this film and the fun adventure it took me on. It’s a fun, engaging, at times weird, horror-comedy film and it will make me stay tuned for Kevin’s next feature! “Babble-On” and “Have a week“.

Oh by the way….. GUY LAPOINTE IS MY NEW FAVORITE CHARACTER OF ALL TIME!!! Want to know what i mean? Who is he? What does he do? See the movie!

5/5 speakers (which means it’s great!)

Reviews In Real-Time: The Shane Song by Belle Rousse

10561737_501957769906766_7625922742622691304_n (1)

A good mark of a successful song, no matter the level of success, is the “catchiness” of the song and the ability to be embedded in your head for a long period of time, making it seemingly impossible to get out. That is what the upcoming single by Belle Rousse, “The Shane Song”, does. We here at the Airspeaker Podcast were given the honor and opportunity to preview the track before it’s official release on September 10th, 2014 and so far it has not left my head.

With it’s infectious and poppy beats, this is a fun summer tune for your summer parties or cruising down the coast. It does have a certain Weezer-esc quality to it in which it has a simplistic approach lyrically but musically it still delivers a fun time. Included in the song is a question asking what it is about this boy Shane that makes him “so mother-fucking cool”. Leave it to a girl from Alabama to make California style tune.

Belle is a past, and hopefully a returning, guest on the Airspeaker Podcast who made her debut with an interview and with the song “IDKU” from the E.P. “Expressionate” on Episode #36 of the podcast.

So in summary, I was already a fan of her music – discovering her music through her Twitter – and her inventive versions of cover songs, so I wasn’t surprised that i would like this song. With “Speakers” being our version of stars, I give this song 4 out of 5 speakers. I gave this track a few listens and after every listen it just grew and grew on me. I’m interested to see what you all think of this song. I am also interested to see what more she has in store for us in the form of an upcoming album and beyond.

Reviews in Real-Time: Capital Cities

In_a_Tidal_Wave_of_Mystery_by_Capital_Cities_artwork

Artist: Capital Cities
Album: Tidal Wave of Mystery
Released: June 4, 2013

http://www.capitalcitiesmusic.com

Written by Raul Leon – @VillainMy

Capital Cities is a dynamic duo (not of the Batman/Robin variety), a musical dynamic duo, reigning from Los Angeles. It’s members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian have been collaborating musically since early 2008 when they initially found and met one another through a Craig’s List ad!!! They initially composed “jingles” for various advertisements and commercials. After approximately 3 years of success with jingle writing they decided to venture and create a musical collaborative, Capital Cities.

As Capital Cities they released their first album “Tidal Wave of Mystery” which includes their first hit single, “Safe and Sound”.
Their second single “One Minute More” (my favorite of their songs and the reason why I was ever compelled for my writing this review) arrived on the airwaves shortly after as yet another hit single. I feel that Merchant and Simonion found the perfect balance between a U2 style epic stadium rock and married it with an emotional and inspiring dance music. It truly is a beautiful piece. Simple and never forced, it flows naturally and gracefully.

With at least 2 hit singles in their pockets, two things are certain (listening to their other material):
1) these guys certainly are having fun with their music…
2) they truly have a feel for writing some catchy ass tunes…

I look forward to hearing what they create next? Check these guys out if you are looking for some fun heartfelt music.

Airspeaker’s Review in Real-Time: So right off the bat you get a hint of a Paramore influence when you first hear Open Sails, but don’t let that fool you. From their hometown of Calgary, Alberta Canada, they come at you with their first indie, self-titled, album with just a purely great hard rock/pop album that goes through strong track by track and quickly ends, leaving you wanting more. Great music by the band and strong vocals by Joy Lynn will make this a band to look out for in the near future whenever they come out here to the states. Choosing a song to play first from the album was a bit difficult with songs such as “Breakdown”, “Take It All”, and “Sunsets”, but we decided to go with “All of Me”. We hope to play more of them in the future and hopefully have them on the podcast! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. (4 1/2 out of 5 headphones)
