As I said in the previous post, there are a lot of bands in this world that do something special every time they get on a stage or enter a recording studio. Only Ones has been around for less than a year, but during that short time I've had the chance to meet some great people from some great bands. I think the greatest thing about art is that it can convey a message, get people together in a positive way and put smiles on peoples faces. Those are the things that Only Ones is about at the core. I feel really lucky to sponsor a band like Bane because in a lot of ways their music pushed me to do this.
They have some new 7 inches out and I recommend picking them up.
Speaking of putting smiles on faces! Pete Chilton, bass player of Bane, put together a really nice video that is up for a contest. Click here and rate it high!
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
