REVIEW: Que Lastima / Octo Gato / Sunnyvale at Propaganda

This past Friday, Lake Worth’s de facto punk venue Propaganda played host to one of the top five best local shows of the year – Que Lastima, Octo Gato and Sunnyvale. As I walked into the club the sounds of Octo Gato pulled me in and didn’t let go. I had to remind myself that […]

Scene Review: Arcade Odyssey

Back in the late ’80s, and certainly during the early ’90s, I was already hard at work nurturing my burgeoning love of video games. Much of my earliest exposure came from a Sega Master System that I received for Christmas one year (an NES soon followed). Like many of you out there, I played the […]

TV preview: Brew Dogs: Miami

Back in 2007, James Watt and Martin Dickie founded BrewDog, a small craft brewery in Scotland. They both had a fondness for libations and had a goal to create some of the finest craft beers in the United Kingdom. What they never expected was how big their success would be.

Comic Book/Anime Crossover Alert: Spider-Man Sticks it to the Titans

A fairly amazing thing was just announced on the internet, but first: A word about a fine cartoon.

These beings, who appear suddenly to effectively drive humanity to the brink of […]

MOVIE REVIEW: Space Pirate Captain Harlock

Space Pirate Captain Harlock Directed by: Shinji Aramaki Toei Animation Company I’ll begin by prefacing this review with the following disclaimer: Though I am a long time fan of Japanese animation, I am only marginally acquainted with the exploits of the renowned Captain Harlock. So, despite a few run-ins with later incarnations of the show, […]

An Interview with Dinst of The Black Tibetans

It is rare these days for one to come across a band that isn’t molded to meet some prepackaged market criteria for success, from costumed stadium pop to the modern incarnation of psychedelia, but there are some bands that punch through and grab you by the throat and need no explanation. The Black Tibetans is […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Twenty-Nine

I have to admit that I am incredibly pumped about the upcoming World Cup. So much so, that this past Thursday I joined in the ranks of the wonderful JoltRadio.org and recorded my first program and as I had to confess to the owner and producer John Caignet, all I was thinking about was the […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Twenty-Seven

All I can think of lately is the upcoming World Cup. Seriously. I’ll be having a conversation at work or at the grocery store and all I can picture is myself in fantasy scenarios. I’m a holding midfielder and on a defensive lull I squirm through on the left bank beating the offside trap, first-touch […]
