Dynamics Plus: Rockets viewed and reviewed

 

Rocket Science is a futuristic hip-hop project with numerous nerd references. The title for the album Rocket Science is fitting … it’s clear that this production is both complex and thoughtful and thus why Dynamics Plus used the term for the album.

Blast Off!

This is going to be 2 part review so that I can focus on the music and the visual elements of the Dynamics Universe separately. As this is a music blog, let’s first talk about the music. Dynamics Universe Volume 9: Rocket Science is a futuristic hip-hop project with numerous nerd references. The title for the album Rocket Science is fitting. At first, you’d think this name seems a bit derogatory as the normal colloquialism associated with the term “rocket science” is to indicate that something is easy, a la “it’s not rocket science.” But it’s clear that this production is both complex and thoughtful and thus why Dynamics Plus used the term for the album. The first few tracks start out a bit too aggressively for my taste. But once “A Perfect Night A Perfect World” kicked in, I was into this album.

AreYouAWinslow.com gets wind of the web series

 Comics, Characters and action! Mark of the Griffin gets a look!

.. the web series still carries the gravitas of the prose…

Read the graphic novel

Graphic Novel goes live! Mark of the Griffin FIRST

 

 They say:

I also had the chance to read a comic book from The Dynamic Universe collective, Mark of the Griffin issue #1 written by Drew Spence. This story is presented in a web series as well. After viewing the web series and reading issue #1 of Mark of The Griffin, I have to say that the web series is a far superior presentation of this story. The story overall is very well written and captivating, and the one major plus that the comic has over the web series is that as a reader you can consume the narrative with the aid of your own imagination. Reading the prose, which is basically an internal monologue, has a certain effect that you just can’t get from watching the web series. The major failing of the comic is the art style. The comic is composed of actual shots from the web series that have some sort of Photoshop effect applied to them. As a comic book nerd, I just couldn’t get into this style. I applaud the creators for taking an unorthodox approach and really investing in a multi-media platform for their storytelling, but the comic just doesn’t work for me. By comparison, the web series still carries the gravitas of the prose and the production value is just much, much higher. The story basically revolves around one man, Marcus Griffin, as he undertakes a high-stakes heist and has flashbacks along the way to his very first kills. It’s a captivating story and well told. If you are interested in viewing it yourself, I would recommend the web series. It is truly quite good. Check the links below.
