Today's day off is dedicated to catching up on videos I've been wanting to watch.
First on the list was Korn Unplugged. Man, that was fun. Not only did they bring in the strings and the small orchestra but they had a lot of fun percussion going on. They actually brought out an armonica and a marxophone. I haven't heard one of those used in a very long time. Very fun instruments. The best part was The Cure coming on and playing with them. They all looked surprisingly good. Hopefully a new generation will understand the brilliance that is The Cure.
And then there is Casino Royale. This is a Bond movie in the Sean Connery sense. There was a lot of charisma, a lot of action and not too much gadgetry. Bond had become about the gadgets and snide remarks. This bond has the remarks sure but he is more of a hard ass than we've seen in a long time. The b&w opening is classic british spy cinema. It is just a good action movie. I wish I could have seen it on the big screen.
