December 12, 2018 on Noteworthy Movie Soundtracks From 2018
'Black Panther' songs were barely in the movie, so I didn't count it. (I didn't think the score was all that, either.) And the 'Phantom Thread' soundtrack was technically released this year, so I paired it up with another Greenwood score since it missed last year's list 'cus it wasn't out by the time it was published.

December 12, 2018 on Noteworthy Movie Soundtracks From 2018
Quick author's note down here: I haven't seen If Beale Street Could Talk yet so I didn't include it, but judging by the soundtrack it probably would have made it on here. Also Suspiria was 85% bad - don't come at me! Thom's score was especially messily used. Some of those songs are great on their own but in the context of the movie are totally lifeless. Ok thanks!

December 11, 2018 on Watch Grimes’ Wild Tonight Show Performance Of “We Appreciate Power”
I know you didn't mean anything bad by this, but this makes me a little sad because what I care about most/cover a lot of here is indie rock that like nobody listens to :( I like some pop but I definitely don't consider that my lane.

December 10, 2018 on Vox Lux And The Death Of Poptimism
Thanks, glad to hear from someone who has already seen it. I was definitely on the fence for a lot of the movie, but the last 30 minutes or so sold me on its twisted shit. I could absolutely see walking away from this hating it, though, but honestly it's nice to have a movie about music and fame that doesn't play it safe or easy. (Looking at you, A Star Is Born.) Obviously we differ on the takeaway, hope you didn't think it was a total waste of time. Curious to know what you thought of Spring Breakers, cus I feel like that's a film it has a lot in common with tonally and has been similarly divisive.

"This site" has a lot of different people with a lot of different opinions and also I'm not deriding anything in this article, I'm talking about a film that has a very specific point of view. There's no right or wrong here.

Amazon Prime has an OK selection... old Match Game, Family Feud, Password, that sort of thing. Stuff that used to be on Game Show Network but if you don't have cable anymore it hits the spot.
