Your Heart CD Release

Last night I attended the CD release show for Andrew Huang under the name Your Heart at St. Stephen in the Fields church (home of Freedomize Toronto). The album is called "Summer" and it's his goal to release one themed album for each season, with this being the first one.

In the promo flyer it said that there would be cookies, farm animals, and Barack Obama. All three were promised and delivered. It was a nice intimate atmosphere capped off with candlelit tables which gave off a great romantic mood even if you're not romantic.

In addition to releasing his CD, it was also the debut of the music video for his song "In the Sun", which opened up his set. The set was an eclectic mix of upbeat songs and more mellow tunes. About half the songs were performed with a full band, while the others were filled with selective instruments. The show ended off with a live performance of "In the Sun", to which a fair group of dancers filled the front stage area, I guess the crowd favourite.

I'd say the only thing that hampered the show was the balancing of levels on the mix board. The instruments came through fine, but the vocals sounded a bit muffled and it was difficult to make out what the lyrics were. However, it was a fun show, and hey, it was free cover, can't argue that!

Check out his website (here and Myspace). Below is a preview for the music video. Later geeks!

Thanks for inviting me out! A great night for sure. I love the CD even more because I can hear the vocals! Ended up being a reunion night for me - who knew.

No problemo! I'm just glad that everyone had a good time. And it's so awesome that you could see a bunch of your friends again. God smiles at your joy.

Mark Waid's IRREDEEMABLE (Issues #1-7)

(Note: be warned that this review is on the spoiler heavy side, so read at your own discretion if you don't want the story spoiled.) Since I was a teenager, I always had this dream that I would become a quirky movie director and I'd make a bunch of crappy little horror movies to start with, but that my first big movie would be this anti-superhero movie. I dreamed up of an Apocalypse Now -like movie using existing Marvel superheroes where Captain America would go mad, slaughtering the innocent and go into hiding somewhere 'up the river'. There would be a detective like character (possibly superhero) that would be after him, interviewing his former teammates to find out what made the all-American hero go mad. Imagine my surprise when I started reading Irredeemable . Although not exactly the story in my dreams, it's pretty close. I started reading the series this past weekend upon the glowing review that those geeks over at iFanboy put up a few weeks ago. As far a

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3!!!!!!!!!!!! (PS4)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is Activision’s latest entry into the bestselling Call of Duty franchise.  Developed by Treyarch Studios, the Black Ops subseries of Call of Duty games has been considered by many as the best of the COD games.  Whereas Black Ops 1 and 2 were direct sequels, BO3 seems only to be a spiritual sequel to its predecessors.  There is no direct or clear continuation of story from the previous entries.  Rather it takes the ideas of mind control and manipulation, and spins off its own story. It’s a futuristic world, where humans are infused with technology (much like Robocop!) and fight alongside and against robots.  This time around, you assume the role of an unnamed soldier, who together with your partner Hendricks and a CIA agent named Rachel Kane, track down a former Black Ops commander named John Taylor as he and his former squad appears to have gone rogue destroying CIA sites around the world.  The story will take you to Singapore, Egypt and ev

DTV Madness: Jack Brooks - M.S. and Gingerdead Man 2

Okay, honestly, I think this will be the last DTV post for a while. One man can only take so much shit. I'm only human, I have feelings too. These two movies pushed my limit. I'm going to be in DTV-detox for the next month or so. Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer I thought that with a title like this, it couldn't fail. I thought that with a poster like they had, it couldn't fail. Then I realized something... I failed. I failed in thinking that this movie had any hope. I was expecting some fun horror, mixed with comedy in sort of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer kind of fashion with a bumbling hero and smart quips. I mean, with a title like Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer , was I wrong in expecting a variety of monsters get slayed as the title suggests? It didn't help much that the monsters looked uber cheesy. They looked like something right out of a Power Rangers episode. But to their credit, at least they stuck with practical make-up and effects rather than CG. The mo
