Riding On with the Texas Hippie Coalition

Let's get right to business. On the road for Mayhem Fest, fresh off putting the polishing touches on a new record due out in the fall, three members of the Texas Hippie Coalition were gracious enough to sit down with us (again) to take on a few questions. We corralled the red dirt metallers long enough to talk their new record, the theory of their music and old-school recording techniques. Read on:
M.DREW: You guys just finished recording a new record, we should expect to see it when?
TIMMY BRAUN: 10/7 [Editor's note: Updated from original version]
M.D: What should people expect?
JOHN EXALL: Man, you know we’re gonna bring that Texas groove right to ya.

CORD POOL: Some older-style stuff.

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Day 2 - The Main Stage

As the sun descended and the heat abated giving way to a more palatable if not comfortable evening, the lights of the main stage blared in a dazzling display, challenging the darkness of the coming night and drawing the gathered throngs, thus far aimed in different directions throughout the day, with a singular purpose. These final four acts bore the responsibility as headliners to make sure that the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival would end with memorable notes.

Trailer Time: "Mad Max: Fury Road"

I have no idea where "Mad Max: Fury Road" falls in the time line of Mad Max movies. I also don't really care, because the movie is directed by George Miller, the same man who created Mad Max 1 and 2 so long ago. I'm just going to assume it fits in there. Besides, judging from this trailer, it looks pretty amazing.

Book Vs Television: The Strain S1:E3 The Third Rail

Another week of “The Strain,” another debate with the mister about whether it should have been a movie instead of a TV show. Where the former might have gotten some critical details squeezed out, the latter continues to get away with not-quite-enough exposition each week. It’s still hurting the show’s overall effectiveness, in my opinion, but more on that shortly.

Attack on Titan (Season 1: Part 1) Blu-ray Review

“Attack on Titan” is easily the biggest thing to happen in anime in over a decade. Personally, I don’t remember anyone making a really big deal about any series since the six episode mini-series of “Fooly Cooly,” and to be honest, as good as “Fooly Cooly” is, I don’t remember even it getting this kind of buzz. However, after watching the twenty-five episode first season it’s not hard to understand how “Attack on Titan” gained such a following.
