Kiss! Kiss! Bang! Bang! (The James Bond Mix)

Date November 9, 2012

James Bond has long been one of my favorite film heroes. Growing up I would watch and rewatch my favorite Bond films (mostly taped on VHS from TBS “15 Days of 007″ marathons) and although the franchise’s quality is pretty hit-or-miss, I’ll always have a particular fondness for the suave secret agent. The latest Bond [...]

U2 – 20 Essential Tracks

Date November 2, 2011

This is a new feature where I take a band that’s for whatever reason on my mind and make a list (of no set number) of my favorite songs from said band. Simple enough, right? I thought I’d kick this off with U2, not just because they’re reissuing what is likely the peak of their artistic [...]
