Episode 22 - "The Hunger Games Coda"

Every year we find ourselves in the same position. The holidays have arrived and sales are reaching a fever pitch, but where should our hard-earned dollars go? With Black Friday now conspicuously starting halfway through Thursday, it is becoming harder to shop savvy at the local big box stores in town. Lucky for us, the Internet provides a thoughtful solution. 

Typesetter :: Wild’s End :: Black Numbers

 

 

Typesetter’s Wild’s End starts out with a great sense of urgency and fury. We immediately are in this record. There is a slightly messy slightly frantic undercurrent to this album. It works to get you riled up and the album never lets you come down.  I can only imagine what a pit would be like. Within the album, and even within individual tracks, hey are creating the tension and the relapse – brilliant.

NYCC'14 was a huge success. The past few weeks we've seen a lot of articles about cosplayers and what not, but here at CC2K we pride ourselves with only the best. So, come and check out part 2 of Cosplay and things you missed.

Big Ross checks in to discuss the pointless argument that is Marvel vs DC.

SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE MOVIE AND THE BOOK!

Coming out of Gone Girl, I was of two minds — appalled pearl-clutcher and delighted crime-fiction geek. On reflection, I’m inclined to side with the pearl-clutcher in me that sees David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling thriller as a clarion call for misogynists and men’s rights loons everywhere, but I’d still like to talk about how the movie (adapted by Flynn herself) mashes together a variety of tropes from several decades’ worth of crime-fiction lore — all for a deeply hypnotic end-result.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Written by

With the passing of another year, we readied our hearts and wallets for the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise.  Last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts saw a dip in the series, both in quality and fan approval.  This year, Sledgehammer Games--a studio that has worked alongside other Call of Duty studios--has been given the tools to create their own unique twist to a played out franchise.  Advanced Warfare is a graphical accomplishment boasting a fully realized cast with advancements in the way Call of Duty will be viewed going into the future.

Big Ross examines a common trope used in bringing comic book characters to the small screen, and why it should be banished to the Phantom Zone.

Restorations :: LP3 :: SideOneDummy

 

This album psyches you up itself. The first two minutes of LP3 are instrumental. The music sets the tone and lures you in, by the time the lyrics start you are begging for a release.
