A buddy of mine has a band called More Than Enough.  If you like pop/punk you will dig them.  Here is a link to their reverbnation page: http://www.reverbnat.../morethanenough

 

They have opened for Real Big Fish and Motion City Soundtrack

 

"So long and thanks for all the dick pictures" is about a former band mate who never showed for practice or shows, and then sent dick pics to the rest of the bands girlfriends. 

 

"Yay for coozie" is my favorite.  Just a good song and there's  a Grain Belt shout out.  If you see their logo, it is a spin on the Grain Belt logo.  That's how Josh and I really bonded. If you are not from Minnesota or the Midwest you probably have not heard of Grain Belt or Schell's beer.  His grandpa worked for Grain Belt in Minneapolis until they were bought and moved to Wisconson.  Eventually, Schell's brewing bought it and brought it back to Minnestoa.  My grandpa worked for Schell's.  If you ever get the chance, swing by the Schell's garden in New Ulm.  It's a neat little place that's tucked away.  We took the kids last year and they loved it.  Schell's also produces 1919 Root Beer, not sure if that's big outside of Minnesota. 

 

Anyway, More Than Enough, check them out.  You can find them on itunes and Spotify as well.

Better Call Saul is about the only thing I am watching now.  Took a job promotion at work, and the hours are killing me.  Still waiting for help, so my time is limited.  I really like it.  I've always like the character, and Bob O. does such a great job. 

 

Indie, still not not watched much of Constantine.  Way behind. 

 

Anyone see that Bruce and Sam are "going" to do an Evil Dead series?  I think it will be on Netflix.  I guess they are both out of work now, so I just might happen.


In Topic: Vice

I rented this a few nights ago.  I'd say its a bit better than most standard DTV fare.  You're not getting into much new here, but it had it moments.  I feel the focus of the film is what really dragged it down.  First off, if you are going to see it because of Tom, then you will be pleased.  Vice gives him some pretty good screen time, and he out-acts everyone else involved.  I've seen reviews saying Tom was over the top.  I think the rest of the cast did not try.  It shows.  If everyone brought their game like Tom, he wouldn't stand out like he did. 

 

Like Reach Me, the story would have been better if the focus was more on Tom's character, or at least not so much on the android and her creator.  That is where the film fails for me.  It seems like halfway through, the script wanted to focus on trying to make a tangable love story, and it fails.  It's too drawn out and acted poorly.  It's just dead weight and slowed the film's momentum.

 

The film's opening with Tom busting in on a Vice patron, that held so much promise.  It posed a great question about right/wrong and the effects of people's actions outside of the fantasy.  They should have focused more on why Tom's character hates Vice so much.  There was a story begging to be told.

 

Overall, it's not a bad movie, but it's not great.
