The military draft is coming, the warmongers want to take your children. What can you do to protect them?
Trans Am recalls the robot-friendly, futuristic doom of previous efforts on Liberation, their election year release, where the band uses the sounds of Washington D.C, talking heads, hummers and all, to depict the blue pill’s sense of horror on the war on terror.
What can you say about a greatest hits collection from one of the greatest bands that ever stepped into a studio?

Several solo attempts and greatest hits later, the girls are back with God Bless the Go Go’s, where the band mocks their short-lived careers, producing rather unflattering effects.
Re-teaming with The Dust Brothers, Beck didn't set out to make Odelay part deux, but to reintroduce us to Beck Hanson...the "Loser" that made good and who gave us a "Devil's Haricut." "It's a Latin-tinged tribute to his humble beginnings in East L.A." (Pitchfork)
Are you being nagged to much by your significant other? This is the playlist for you!
This, the long awaited follow up to #1, will without a doubt bring Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner back into the public consciousness where they belong. More song-based than their debut offering, Odyssey has an acoustic, analogue sound that is rarely heard in modern electronic music. Vocals also feature more heavily and give the record an eerie feel, especially when set against the habitual bass and synth backdrop. The lyrics’ surreal quality might also stem from the fact that many of them are drawn from ‘Spam’ emails. ‘Everything to Gain’, for example, was inspired

Mazzy Star is best known for a single fluke near-hit, the wistful, achingly romantic, windswept waltz "Fade Into You", which just missed the top-40 in 1994, peaking at #44. For those who recall that song, but have never investigated their albums, Mazzy Star may well appear to be yet another one-hit wonder, albeit one without an actual hit. The band has done itself no favors in getting the word out about its own music; guitarist David Roback and singer Hope Sandoval are notoriously interview-adverse and seldom promoted their work. It has been nearly nine years since their last album, although Sandoval, who has released three CD's in the interim, recently claimed that Mazzy Star hasn't broken up. Their CD covers did not feature their photographs, in concert the band lurked in the shadows and seldom engaged the audience in stage patter, the band's sporadic promo videos were impressionistic and seldom played on MTV.

The film wants us to believe. It wants us to believe that life is worth dreaming about.
This strange distortion of Phillip José Farmer's Riverworld Saga ended with a fringe of loose plot-threads.
George, buddy, take a cue from Clone Wars! Less political wrangling about separatists and more cool stuff like this that made Star Wars great in the first place.
"Fighting for something better than just jungle law, fighting so's he can stand on his own two feet, free and decent."
Pablo Mirrales is the antithesis of a habitual hero. Overweight, spliff smoking, croissant guzzling, and addicted to philosophy chat rooms on the Internet, he may nonetheless be easier to identify with than your typical protagonist. Pablo is by all accounts the ‘black sheep’ of his wealthy Barcelona-based family. Happy to live in a grotty rented flat and spend his time in bars, he lets his brother ‘The First’ take care of the family business.
Kissing Bill O'Reilly, Roasting Miss Piggy might have been a great book about what's right and wrong with TV, if only Ken Tucker had bothered to write more than one draft of it.
The 1960's civil rights movement was as much a religious revival as a liberal political movement.
