“Medium blending is rarely done, especially where more than one is used to tell the same story. Recent examples are video games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age continuing their stories in comic books. But what if someone were to create one story across multiple mediums at the same time? It’s an intriguing idea, but we don’t have to wait to see it in action. Combining short films, comic books and music, Drew Spence has told one story across three different mediums.”    READ MORE

Move Review Love (2011) – 2001 and Moon meet The Fountain

Love, a movie review

-directed by William Eubank and starring Gunner Wright

After editing my personal tastes and preferences in Netflix, I was bombarded with a ton of movies I have never heard of. Love was one of them. The plot summary detailed a lone astronaut abandoned in a low-orbiting space station that loses contact with earth and loses it. The reviews suggested there was an interwoven story about time travel and the memories of past lives. It sounded interesting enough so I dove in.

Love is timeless and bonding

Moon (2009), Directed by Duncan Jones has a similar tone of isolation with a meaningful payoff at the end. We get the same stage here in Love as the living environment of a cold and sterile satellite-station magnifies the aloneness and loneliness. There is simply nothing to do but be alone. And that set up needs to hook you. You have to be pulled in by the hard sci-fi atmosphere and the calm and steady pacing because that’s mostly what you get here.
Director William Eubank seems to specialize in earthy urban dramas and pulled inspiration for Love [his first sci-fi foray] from a few spacey classics. It was as if he intended to improve Moon by saying something bigger in Love. It was if he wanted to recreate the vibe of Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain (2006), but tell the story in a simpler way. And finally, Eubank must have loved the resolution of 2001: A Space Odyssey where Dave Bowman meets himself from the future.

 

In Love, we get interesting, we get profound, but we don’t get awe and epic. In the end, we find that Love is the most powerful bonding agent and it’s our memories of love that keep us rooted in time. Love is a good movie and worth watching, but I get a sense that the memory of this movie will also fade over time. There just wasn’t enough to differentiate it from all the pieces that inspired it.

New music with a message

Domino Grey and Michael from RadioWaves.US present a special message for the New Year. Vocal edit and instrumental available plus bonus Happy New Year song.

“Hello everyone. This is Michael from RadioWaves.US with Domino Grey. Now that New Years has passed and a NEW YEAR is upon us, I’d like to share some important thoughts about your next 365 days.

We use New Years as a marker of hope to bring sweeping CHANGES to our lives. Too often, we find ourselves dreaming of a better life
Most of us dream about becoming rich and draw up lofty plans and ideas about how to change our cash flow. A more realistic goal is to IMPROVE our finances by monitoring how much we spend and what we spend it on. Consider where your money goes and even where it comes from and make improvements. Eliminating foolish spending on disposable items and empty entertainment can go a long way to improving your month to month budget.

We hope to change our relationships by changing people. We see ourselves as operating in the right and everyone else that doesn’t agree, operating in the wrong. That’s a very black and white way to look at our friends and partners. Consider the idea that in-between the Black and White, there is Grey.

Disagreements and stalemates occur when we find ourselves arguing to be right, instead of sharing our ideas and concepts. We never need to change what makes our relationships special, but we can improve them by remembering why people were accepted into our lives.

And lastly, we all want to change the shape of our bodies, but how about improving our health instead? Instead of looking in a mirror and waiting for change, you can look in your kitchen and see the improvement. Choosing to eat better is choosing to live better. It’s not about working out but working out a balanced life of responsible eating and exercise.

This is Michael from RadioWaves.US with Domino Grey wishing you a productive and safe year.”

Domino Grey is a child of rhythm- born from the Organic Electronic. The mixture of our Past and Future presents us with a sonic footprint- a quiet moment in time when silence expressed our deepest emotions and music was the only word spoken. These are cascading thoughts falling across a canvass of sound. Use these new colors to illustrate your imagination. Please touch the walls and leave behind the fingerprints as evidence of your existence.
