Into The Abyss: Teal and Orange - Hollywood, Please Stop the Madness
"Those of you who watch a lot of Hollywood movies may have noticed a certain trend that has consumed the industry in the last few years.  It is one of the most insidious and heinous practices that has ever overwhelmed the industry... I speak of course, of THE COLOR GRADING VIRUS THAT IS TEAL & ORANGE!!!" Oh dear. An entertaining follow up to that great Stu Maschwitz post on 'porange'.

Bronze Age Fox - Impossible! info
Pop band from Bristol, made good singles, got a deal, rather than touring recorded an album, album got shelved by label that had wanted them to tour, band broke up, album now sees light of day from SVC, for three quid. Phew!

Defend Moscow on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Videos
Defend Moscow are a friend's new band, and their single "Manifesto" is out very, very soon; big, eighties-influenced pop, with slightly filthy bass and that classic boy/girl harmony thing going on. Hoping for good things for this, so into the links it goes!

The Sands of Time: Crafting a Video Game Story - Jordan Mechner
"In this chapter I'll try to shed some light on the creative and technical decision-making processes that went into crafting the story and narrative elements of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (POP for short). The team's approach was practical, not literary; our challenge was to find the right story for a mass-market action video game." Jordan Mechner on writing Sands of Time; well-crafted, and very pragmatic.

BBC - BBC 6 Music Programmes - The Record Producers, Brian Wilson
Heard some of this last night; a superb BBC documentary about Brian Wilson and some of his production techniques that shaped the Beach Boys' albums. Some great interviews, and lovely musical deconstruction of harmony and voicing. Obviously, as a "listen again" programme, it's only around for six days - so get listening!

YouTube - Pork and Beans
Weezer's video for Pork And Beans is beautiful. I got a lot of the pastiches in it, but there are a few I'm missing. Still, lovely!

The Death of High Fidelity : Rolling Stone
"Over the past decade and a half, a revolution in recording technology has changed the way albums are produced, mixed and mastered — almost always for the worse." Good Rolling Stone article on compression, enhancement, and why it sounds rubbish.

Don't give up the day job | Rock | Guardian Unlimited Music
"Journalists are always asking us if we actually want to be successful. I am successful. I get to make records and do all that stuff, and if it goes tits-up I have a decent job." Broken Family Band are adamant on keeping the day job.

Kieron Gillen goes to work on what looks like a cross between Quadrophenia, Hellblazer, and the best of Plan B. Can't wait.
