Day 254: Don’t Let The Devil by Jackie Greene

24 Feb

Hey everyone!

For today’s post, I wanted to get some blues out there (to essentially contribute to the stormy weather).

A few weeks back, me and Michael, a friend of mine, went to see Jackie Greene at WOW Hall. I had zero expectations, so I was thoroughly surprised at how great the concert was! With the bluesy-rock feel and the Hendrix-style guitar solos, I became an instant fan.

I loved how Jackie Greene used all different guitars and instruments to explore the genre he was rocking, actively getting the audience to feel the music like he does. With two acts, a fantastic arrangement of guitars, a 70s electric organ (can you say LOVE?!), and a great voice, he embodied the soul of the 70s. Impressive for such a young artist!

Anyway I had a great time at the concert (thanks Mike!) and I’m proud to say that I’m a Jackie Greene fan from now on!

Here’s an acoustic version of “Don’t Let The Devil” (which was one of my favorite songs he played). It’s really awesome and I’m glad to see this guy still rocks hard acousticly as well as full-band-ly.

Enjoy “Don’t Let The Devil” by Jackie Greene!

Day 66: Scott Pilgrim Avatar Creator!!

25 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Today I’m going nerdy as I discuss my newest anticipation: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010).

Starring Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is an epic tale of love, music, and FIGHTING. Now, I haven’t read the comic book it’s based off of, but this is what I know: Scott is in a band, and he is pretty much a slacker. He’s sort of dating this girl, but nothing serious. Then, one night at a party, he meets the girl of his dreams: Ramona Flowers (a girl with crazy-ass colored wigs). The two begin to date, but it is soon clear that Ramona has baggage: 7 evil pieces. Now Scott has to fight his way through 6 rough and tough guys (and one girl), to be with the girl he loves.

Oh, and did I mention that it is directed by Edgar Wright, who is famous for directing Shaun Of The Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007). Sooooo yeah this movie is already amazing.

Check out the preview right here.

To help promote the movie, they launched a really fun little game on the website called the “Scott Pilgrim Avatar Creator”… you can make a mini you, in the fashion of the little comic book characters!

I made a version of myself, and I urge you to make one too!

So if you make one, post the link to your creation in the comment section so I can see what you got!
