Re: Radiothread

I don't understand why people get down on Amnesiac. It feels like a perfect summation of everything they'd been trying to do up to that point, much like In Rainbows, but scarier. It has that challenging electronic feel that Kid A has, but the songs are just better. With the exception of Hunting Bear...

Re: Perfect Moments In Music

Tons of stuff fron Yes give me braingasms no matter how many times I play it, particularly the lead in to the keyboard solos on Close To The Edge and Siberian Khatru. I hear those riffs and no matter where I am I crack a smile from ear to ear.

Mortal Kombat Reboot

Not a real trailer per se, more of a really polished pitch for a reboot.

The trailer is getting flamed hard on youtube (indignant nerdrage), but if they were going to do another MK movie I think this is definitely the best option. I mean, that looks good to me, I would watch that!
