Herbie Hancock’s Future2Future

Herbie Hancock’s Future2Future, of course, blew me away. Go figure, right?

There’s something about Herbie that’s just incredibly fluid and emotional that truely speaks to me on a non-pretentious level that a lot of jazz can hit on quickly.

Aside from the super heavy keyboard mix, the DVD was rather incredible. Cool multiple angle features which were cool for the first 5 minutes then I forgot about them. Terri Lyne Carrington laid down funk and jazz grooves like there was no tomorrow. I also noticed she had a Remix cymbal. Matthew Garrison played the bass and really impressed me. Being the son of Jimmy Garrison must be a tough thing to ride on your shoulders, but he held his own and then some. Wow.

My only complaint was that the only Headhunters era song we got was Chameleon. I really would have loved to see a live version of Watermelon Man or Hornets from Sextent. Yum.

Regardless, it was a great Netflix find. Do it do it.

We Have A Problem

For the past couple of weeks, we watched Season 1 of Lost. Not to mention the 6+ hours of bonus features on the DVD.

That wasn’t enough.

Clearly. We’re no amatures at obsessive and compusive behavior! Please.

So who could wait until the DVD of Seaon 2 comes out? Surely we couldn’t wait. Emily had the bright idea about downloading the new shows to her Video iPod. Genius! The clarity is pretty good. 200 megs for a 45 minute show @ 128kpbs. It’s around the quality of a VHS tape on a 19″ screen. It’s not bad and it’s only going to improve. Perhaps it’s the wave of the future. Definately a strong niche. Time will tell. Looking forward to this Apple Media Server. And better yet, we’re 9 episodes in to Season 2. Now we have to wait weekly for the episodes. We caught up, but watching commericials and waiting a week is going to suck nut.

Anyways. We seriously have a problem. We litterally come home every day, eat some food and plant ourselves in front of the TV to catch up on who Kate has slutted up on. What Locke has done to creep someone out. What Naveen Andrews did to be portrayed as an Iraqi when he’s from India. How Jin became so goddam ripped. How happy I was so see Shannon die. And how awesomely cute Emilie de Ravin’s accent is. It’s so good. However, we need to get out. Are we the only ones who are scared to go out at night in fear the Others will get us? Ack!
