IRIS 9000 for iPhone 4S

The IRIS 9000 Voice Controlled Module is inspired by HAL 9000, of Stanley Kubrick's monumental sci-fi classic '2001: A Space Odyssey'. The device pairs up with your iPhone 4S/ SIRI app. Ask SIRI your stupid trivia question and when she responds, the glowing red eye on the IRIS 9000 pulses in response. Neat-o!

Soft Moon 'Total Decay'

- Total Decay

Dinowalrus 'Godstar' [Psychic TV Cover]

I can honestly state that in the last 10 or 15 years I have not heard any covers by one of my favorite bands, Psychic TV. So, needless to say that when I heard 2 covers in the last 15 minutes, I was all 'Huh?!' The boys from Brooklyn, Dinowalrus, do a very good cover...almost verbatim. No reinterpretations. No artist or creative license taken...just a good, solid cover, and I'm good with that. Now, the other band I heard earlier today, whose name escapes me, is what it is, forgettable, weak. Is it any wonder I can't recall the bands name?

- Godstar

31 Days Of Halloween [Day 6]

31 Days of Halloween [Day 6]
'Anti Christ' by acclaimed Danish Director Lars Von Trier. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg & Willem Dafoe. Anti Christ has got to be one of the single most disturbing flicks I've seen in years! Warning...this is not a chick-flick, a date night movie or something that should be viewed by wussies! Straight up coo-coo AND I recommend Netflix'ing it...it'll 'f' you up! Take your meds. Get your head straight. Turn off all of the lights. Press play!
