Trailer for Walking Dead tv series.

As an addendum that last post from a few weeks ago, this is a better quality (and slightly extended) trailer to the upcomming series The Walking Dead.

For ease of reference, the first track used on the trailer is Paris Motel – Mr. Splitfoot. You can listen to it here.

Bioshock Infinite: colour me excited.

There is a write up over at Wired that is worth looking into. Needless to say it inspires a great deal of confidence in this new installment.

New Favourite: Tame Impala.

I've been sitting on Innerspeaker and Tame Impala for a while now, but simply haven't had a chance to listen to it properly. Holy goddamn. This is the best fucking psychedelic rock I've heard in a long time.

re: tonic immobility (aka lobster sexytimes)

And a trailer about a doco that, to an extent, deals with it as well:

Evil don't look like anything.

SCULLY: It's the truth or a white whale. What difference does it make? I mean, both obsessions are impossible to capture, and trying to do so will only leave you dead along with everyone else you bring with you. You know Mulder, you are Ahab.

MULDER: It's interesting you should say that, because I've always wanted a peg leg. It's a boyhood thing I never grew out of. I'm not being flippant, I've given this a lot of thought. I mean. if you have a peg leg or hooks for hands then maybe its enough to simply keep on living. You know, bravely facing life with your disability. But without these things you're actually meant to make something of your life, achieve something earn a raise, wear a necktie. So if anything I'm actually the antithesis of Ahab, because if I did have a peg leg I'd quite possibly be more happy and more content not to be chasing after these creatures of the unknown.

SCULLY: And that's not flippant?

MULDER: No, flippant is my favourite line from Moby Dick. 'Hell is an idea first born on an undigested apple dumpling'.

Now that I have quite openly stated our differences in intellectual convictions it is still clear to me that we are quite close to each other in essential things, i.e. in our evaluation of human behavior ... I think that we would understand each other quite well if we talked about concrete things.
