The always busy Kutmasta Kurt has been doing things nonstop for a while.
Kurt had been DJing in the Bay Area since the mid-'80s, getting his start as a teenager on a Santa Cruz community radio station. In 1988, he moved on to the Stanford University college station, and also mixed live at parties around the University of California-Santa Cruz campus.

A new film coming soon by our favorite director, Wes Anderson. This movie looks very enjoyable with the common quirks that you'll find in a Wes Anderson film. Something for the kids and the older kids like me. I'm really freaking about how great this is going to be. I loved the story when I was a child.

New short film from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs also directed by directed by Karen O and Barney Clay. Very art school fueled film reminds me of back in the days when I was running around town with a Super 8 camera. It's neat with an O.
New poster revealed for the highly anticipated horror film cult classic. Jacki Earl Hailey from the Watchmen has been confirmed to play our favorite Fedora sporting villain. Samuel Bayer will be resurrecting Freddy back to the big screen. Imagine seeing this on the IMax?

Recently just finished watching Corpse Bride by Tim Burton. Burton was nominated for Academy award for this stop motion animation back in 2005. The film is loosely based on a 19th century Russian-Jewish folktale version of an older Jewish story. The casting for the animation was with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Christopher Lee and even score composer Danny Elfman. The film centers around the dark Victorian era with a couple forced for marriage to lead to income/status survival of both families. The hesitant groom practices his vows in the forest to find a surprise, death as colorful and jolly as it will ever be. Follows his heart at all wits to get back to the land of the living. A very enjoyable film for all ages with the occasional singalong. I was very impressed with the mood settings and of course the animation.
Anton Corbijn's film Control is one of those films that you have to watch even if you are not a fan of Joy Division. The film was shot in a brooding black and white format that set the tone of the film to a point. The film focus was mostly on the life and fall of Ian Curtis. A very emotional man dealing with the darker parts of his life through his songs. All the characters were portrayed extremely believable with all the situations that came with the band. Sam Riley resurrected Ian Curtis to life on the screen, goosebumps arose on how real it felt watching the film with an eerie feeling. This is a film for any music lover or future cinematographers to enjoy and own. I highly reccomend Control for your viewing pleasure of a music Icon.
