Begotten Antichrist - Begotten and Marilyn Manson

Synchronicity is not a recent concept in the realm of pop culture, and has become quite well known with regards to the eerie pairing of The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. A long time ago though, I discovered an even more eerie pairing that synchronized in an unnerving fashion: The film Begotten and Marilyn Manson’s Antichrist Superstar

Long ago, I stumbled across references to a film called Begotten. The images that I had seen online from the movie gave haunting and disturbing impressions. Curious, I began looking into the movie, and eventually watched the film. I was always interested in viewing challenging films, particularly those considered to be within the horror genre.

Remembering Ray Dolby 1933-2013

Dr. Ray Dolby, founder and guiding force behind Dolby Laboratories from 1965 to 2009, died on Thursday at his home in San Francisco, CA, according to an announcement by the company. He was 80.

The exact circumstances of Dolby’s death were not included in the announcement, but he lived with Alzheimer’s disease for several years and was diagnosed with acute Leukemia in July of this year. During those 80 years of life, he amassed a fortune of approximately $2.9 billion dollars, was awarded more than 50 U.S. Patents, and fundamentally changed how we watch and listen to media in the modern world.

Legendary Pink Floyd Album ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon

Today marks the milestone of being 40 years ago that one of the great rock records of our age was released in America, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. The record from the British quartet, who created sonic platters of transcendent and translucent sights and sounds, psychedelic rock done multi-tracked and highly adventurous, was a concept album which quadrophonically reached the entire universe on a collective level, both on the mainstream and the cult, creating genres and subgenres of lifestyles and became one of the greatest selling records of all time in the process.

By the time Dark Side of the Moon was released on March 1, 1973, Pink Floyd had already been a sonically swinging juggernaut, a blues unit mixed and melded with drug-laced and addled sounds and flavors of the late 1960s, utilizing jams and instrumentations that when played, created aural emotional tunnels within its listener to be pushed and lifted to different planes within themselves. They became out-of-body experiences in a metaphorical and even literal sense, even more so if one ingested many narcotics that were on hand and in a strange way, like Bob Marley’s work, came to be associated with Pink Floyd by that proxy, something that the band, however, had never consciously promoted.

‘Pink Floyd: The Story of Wish You Were Here’ Coming To DVD

Pink Floyd: The Story of Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd: The Story of Wish You Were Here, a documentary about rock group Pink Floyd‘s memorable album Wish You Were Here, is getting a DVD and Blu-ray release on June 26th from Eagle Rock Entertainment.

The album, which was their follow up to their enormously successful 1973 Dark Side of the Moon, is almost as revered by fans of the group as Dark Side is. Originally released in September 1975 and going to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world, Wish You Were Here explores themes similar to Dark Side — alienation, confusion, longing, mental breakdown, and also even dissension in the music business. It’s also a tribute of sorts to one of their founding members, the late Syd Barrett, who had left the band a few years earlier, due to mental illness. The long track “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” is a recorded nod to their fallen member, who had also made a few unannounced appearances in the studio when they were recording the album. That track opens and closes the record.

Iron Sky

For the past four years Finnish metal band lymystö frontman Timo Vuorensola has been struggling to make his directorial debut Iron Sky a reality. Following the online debut of a teaser trailer in 2008 Vuorensola was able to secure the necessary $8.5 million in funding, a chunk of which was provided by fans who wanted to see the neophyte filmmaker’s dream come to fruition.

Now Iron Sky is completed and preparing for its world premiere next week in Berlin and a trailer for the finished feature has been released. You can check it out here below.

Dark Side of the TriforceEarlier, I posted here about how Pink Floyd‘s classic album Dark Side Of The Moon is available in MP3 format right now for only $1.99.

Now, the $9 t-shirt deal of the day over at Teefury today mashes up Pink Floyd’s iconic album cover art with The Legend Of Zelda in “The Dark Side Of The Triforce” by artist TedDastickJr.

The sale at Teefury began at midnight EST (Sunday, November 28, 2010) and will continue for 24 hours, and once it’s over, it’s gone forever.

The t-shirt design takes the Triforce symbol from Zelda (of three golden triangles), having it take the place of the prism on the Dark Side Of The Moon album cover. Like the album cover, there’s the white light on one side, with the rainbow spectrum on the other.

MP3 Deal: Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ For $2!

pink floyd dark side of the moonAll this week, Amazon has been offering up five albums per day for only $1.99 each in mp3 format. If you purchase MP3s through Amazon, it downloads into your iTunes account, so it’s as simple as purchasing directly through iTunes. Also, you can now gift these MP3 purchases – just click the “Give album or song as gift” button on the right on the product page.

Today, Pink Floyd‘s classic Dark Side Of The Moon is available for only $1.99.

I can’t imagine that there’s anyone left out there who doesn’t already own this amazing Pink Floyd album, but just in case, now’s the time to get it, as it’s only $2. I can’t stress enough how crazy insane it would be to pass up this deal.

There’s a reason Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best-selling albums of all time: the 1973 release has 9 songs and you’d be hard-pressed to find one even mediocre song, let alone one that’s bad.

If you’re not familiar with the album, and you’re wondering if you’ve ever heard any songs from it, chances are, you have: “Money,” which opens with the sounds a cash register ringing and coins clanking, was its popular single and has been in frequent rotation for decades on classic rock stations.

Note, the deal is supposed to be just for today, though it most likely will last maybe through the weekend. Another album that is only $1.99 this week is John Lennon‘s Power To The People – The Hits, which is still on sale. It has 15 of Lennon’s solo hits, like “Imagine,” “Instant Karma,” and “Woman.”

8-Bit Dark Side of the Moon

You remember the days: you grabbed your favorite Nintendo video game cartridge, blew vigorously into your console and the game itself, and pushed the plastic treaure in as far as it would go and then down with a subtle click.

On bad days, your system light would blink or stare blankly back at you, requiring more professional troubleshoot-blowing, but on good days, a moment or two would pass before the beautifully melodic tones of a synthetic 8-bit musical soundtrack would ring out to our eager ears. This is what being happy was all about in the ’80s. Nothing was better, and nothing would ever be better.

We were of course young and stupid back then, and many much better things have come along as we’ve grown old. Even still, the faintest hum of a beepy 8-bit video game’s music can still ignite explosions of nostalgia in our heads, and with today’s delightful technologies, it’s possible for anyone to turn anything into 8-bit musical heaven!

One such person named Brad Smith decided not to stop at one basic tune, but to take one of the most popular albums of all time, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, and make it 100% 8-bit. It’s called MOON8. The brilliant tunes are in six different parts that can all be found at YouTube, but you can put down your Triforce and hop a couple turtles and mushrooms over to the other side to hear a few favorites!
