Holiday Music Gift Guide 2015

The holidays have dawned upon us again and it seems as if the unveiling of them gets sooner and sooner each year. In a world that has seen one of its toughest and tragic years in 2015, the beauty of the holidays is more than a traditional, religious bent, but more about the communion of people and the act of humanity that seems to crawl from the cobwebs only during this time for some people. Regardless of the volume rate, whenever something can collectively bond people together with a sense of energy that runs placid and empathetic, there’s something to be said about the perennial emotion that gets reserved for this time of year. And of course with this year, comes the giving and receiving of gifts and good cheer. And as is my wont for the past few years now, I too have been rather perennial in my choices for key music items to bestow upon good friends and loved ones this time of year. So here’s some picks for this some of this years A-list offerings in music. As usual, this list goes to eleven.

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Interview: Director Peter Sohn & Producer Denise Ream

Pixar The Good Dinosaur

Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur has had its share of production problems throughout the years. Midway through production, Bob Peterson, who was the film’s original director, was dismissed from the project due to difficulties trying to crack the movie’s third act. But as we would soon discover, the film’s story was suffering as a whole, and ultimately it was pushed back almost a year from its original release date. While the delay can be considered overwhelmingly demoralizing, it did help in the filmmakers’ efforts to figure out the story. Soon enough, with the help of the Pixar Brain Trust, the The Good Dinosaur‘s narrative problems were fixed. Peterson was replaced by Pixar’s story artist/animator and sometime voice artist, Peter Sohn (Ratatouille, Monsters University), while Denise Ream stayed on as producer to help the Korean-American filmmaker.

Sohn and Ream talked to Geeks Of Doom and a group of our fellow journalists during the film’s press day about how emotionally draining it could be when you find out that one of the films you have been working so hard on gets hit with delays. But they also talked about how the film draws its inspiration from the great Westerns that are rarely made nowadays, as well as making The Good Dinosaur with very limited dialogue.

Check out our full interview with director Peter Sohn and producer Denise Ream here below.

Sanjay Patel Talks Pixar Short ‘Sanjay’s Super Team’

Pixar Sanjay's Super Team

To say that Pixar’s latest animated short Sanjay’s Super Team is unlike any other animated short from a big animation studio would be a vast understatement. On the surface, it may look like a short that is talking about Hinduism, but deep down it has something a bit more meaningful and delivers a very universal message. Director Sanjay Patel and producer Nicole Paradis Grindle were at The Good Dinosaur‘s press day to talk a little bit about the short itself to Geeks Of Doom and our fellow journalists.

During the roundtable interview, we learned about Patel’s experiences that helped inspire the short to become what it is now, how the goal was to give the mass audience a universal message about family, what superheroes Patel used to watch as a kid, and much, much more. Check out our full interview with the director here below.

Holiday Metal Gift Guide 2015

It’s getting colder. The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer, and everyone is so full of Christmas cheer, it makes you want to burn down a church. Worse than that, you have to spend precious beer money on… gifts. Well, whether you have metal buddies who are seriously expecting something this season, or whether you want to give Aunt Mabel something so heinously inappropriate that she will regift it right back to you, you might want to take a look at this list.

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Interview: Stars Jeffrey Wright & Raymond Ochoa

Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur suffered a huge setback when production had to be overhauled. With the film having to basically start from square one, a majority of those working on it from animation to the cast had to start anew. And for the cast,it meant that their parts were scrubbed, and eventually replaced with an entirely new cast, with an entirely new story.

Despite these huge changes, Pixar managed to get through it all, and come out with a beautiful film about family and maturity. We were invited to sit down with a group of our fellow journalists to talk a little bit about the film with its stars Jeffrey Wright (Casino Royale, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2) and Raymond Ochoa (Fallout 4).

Just below, find out what these two had to say about their recording sessions, their favorite Pixar film, and more.

Massive Metal Monday: Cult of Luna “The Watchtower”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Cult of Luna Band Photo

Cult of Luna is a seven-piece collective from Umeå, Sweden. Their mixture of post metal, shoe gaze, and out-and-out doom metal manages to be ethereal and crushing at the same time. The band is widely regarded as one of the most seminal acts in 21st century metal.

After fifteen years of nonstop recording and touring, Cult of Luna announced in 2013 that they would be taking an extended hiatus, but promised to return “in one form or another.” I, for one, am anxiously awaiting that day!

This week’s Massive Metal Monday track comes from Cult of Luna’s second album, The Beyond, which was released in 2003. Check out the official video for “The Watchtower” and check out more of these guys if you like what you’re hearing.

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Interview: Stars Anna Paquin, Sam Elliot, AJ Buckley
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

The Good Dinosaur

Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur may not look like it at first, but it does have some aspects of a Western that you would see in the rarely seen genre. In the upcoming animated film, Sam Elliot (Tombstone, Justified), Anna Paquin (True Blood, X-Men: Days of Future Past), and AJ Buckley (Justified, Narcos) provide the voices for Butch, Ramsey, and Nash, respectively, a family of T-Rexes who also happen to be cattle ranchers. They are just like any family in a western film, they have a very deep bond with each other, and are fascinated by the incredible stories their father tells. Together, they help Arlo get home, as long as the skittish apatosaurus is able to help them draw out some nasty rustlers who are stealing their cattle.

Geeks Of Doom was invited to sit down with the three film stars along with a group of our fellow journalists during the press day for The Good Dinosaur. During that time, the three actors talked about how weird Pop Vinyls look, finding the voice and the roars to their characters, being a part of the Pixar legacy, and much more. Check out our interview with the three actors here below.

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

In Doctor Who Episode 9.10, an old friend, Rigsy aka “Local Knowledge” (Jovian Wade), calls on the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for some help, when an animated tattoo counting down appears on the back of his neck. The alien ink leads the trio to a concealed refugee locale for extra terrestrials hiding on Earth, where they meet an old friend. But in the process, the situation is far more dire, and will call on one of our heroes to “Face The Raven”…

During TARDISblend 95, we are joined by guest Andy Sorcini of Geeks Of Doom’s The Drill Down, and we discuss a tragic conclusion for one of our Doctor Who characters, and the beginning of a mysterious journey for the Doctor.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend podcast!
