    May 8, 2021 /  Music and Movie

    Most of the Misfits albums are now categorized as horror punk rock. It is a sub genre of types of which this band is broadly regarded as a pioneer of. The group’s transition to its existing enduring image nevertheless, was not an easy ride.

    The first band was the concept of Glenn Danzig who took the title from Marilyn Monroe’s last film. The band’s first line up in 1977 consisted of Diane DiPiazza, Jimmy Challenge and Manny Martinez. DiPiazza and Battle stayed only briefly and Jerry Caiafa, who is now a lot more popularly known as Jerry Only, was recruited into the group. Only and Danzig are the only two permanent fix who stayed on with the band.

    During the same year of their founding, the band started to work on its 1st album Static Age. There have been no record labels took the risk of supporting the venture. The band ended up releasing singles. And it took two decades before Static Age punk CD could be launched as a whole.

    In 1978, the group commenced image makeover that would ultimately define the team for the rest of existence. Danzig commenced to craft much more songs that ended up as horror. Also, whilst performing on stage, band members began sporting horror themed appearances, the most pronounced of which is the devilock hair. From then on, each and every succeeding Misfits punk CD was put within the category of horror punk.

    From 1978 to 1982, the band continued carrying out singles and recording tracks. It was only in 1982 when they managed to push Walk Among US, the very first complete punk CD release. They also went on their national tour on the same year. By 1983, the band was currently in danger of taking the downward slope. Danzig lost interest and at some point introduced the group’s break up. He went on to observe Samhain which centered on heavy metal.

    The Misfits were far from leaving the punk scene though. New help and comments were coming out that other growing acts liked their music. This gave Only the concept of resurrecting the band. This led to a sticky authorized battle that pitted him and Doyle, a previous band member, in opposition to Danzig. It was finally agreed upon outdoors of court that Only and Doyle could carry out as the Misfits and use its logo and continue producing horror punk CD.

  • Horror Movie Reviews – Resident Evil Extinction And More

    Comments Off on Horror Movie Reviews – Resident Evil Extinction And More
    May 8, 2021 /  Music and Movie

    Reviews of some horror movies I’ve watched.

    Resident Evil: Extinction

    In this third installment the entire planet has been overrun by zombie creatures, and Milla Jovovich tries to survive in this Mad Max-like world. Several scenes seem “borrowed” from other movies, like the bird attack straight out of Hitchcock’s “The Birds.” I wasn’t impressed with the CGI, and there’s no real tension in the movie – but there is some nice kick-butt-zombie-action. If you liked the first two “Resident Evil” movies, you’ll enjoy this one as well. Grade: 3 out of 5

    Wind Chill

    In a chilling winter landscape two college students crash with their car. Soon they encounter ghosts. There’s a very creepy atmosphere in this movie, and the acting is excellent. But the movie is also painfully slow, and it’s far between the scares. More drama than horror. Grade: 2 out of 5

    The Hitcher

    Decent 2007 remake of the original Rutger Hauer movie. A young couple on their way to spring break pick up a dangerous hitchhiker, who turns their lives into a nightmare. This time around we se Sean Bean as the hitcher, and he always delivers. Despite some plot holes this is an okay remake, but I prefer the original. Grade: 3 out of 5

    Alone

    From the directors of “Shutter” come this better-than-average ghost horror from Thailand. It’s about a dead siamese twin that comes back to haunt the sister who is alive. I really wanted to give this movie a higher grade, but I can’t because the ghost scares and the twist are very predictable – but it’s a pretty solid movie anyway. Grade: 3 out of 5

    Premonition

    Middle-of-the-road thriller where Sandra Bullock loses her husband in a car accident. But a few days later he’s alive again. Was his death just a premonition of what to come, and can she stop it? The movie is slow paced and confusing as it jumps back and forth in the story. The suspense is almost non-existent, but there are some touching moments between the characters. The movie held my interest to somewhere around the halfway mark, then I got tired of it. Grade: 2 out of 5

    The Breed

    Michelle Rodriguez just doesn’t have any luck with islands. First “Lost” and now this. A bunch of friends arriving at an island are attacked by genetically manipulated rabid dogs. And the dogs are real, no CGI dogs, thank you very much. There are some suspenseful scenes, and the movie is better than I expected, but it’s not good enough. Grade: 2 out of 5

  • Animation Techniques

    Comments Off on Animation Techniques
    May 5, 2021 /  Music and Movie

    There are four basic techniques to be used in animation. These are:
    Drawn animation
    Cut-out animation
    Model animation or stop motion animation
    Computer animation or computer generated imagery (CGI)
    Drawn animation– Drawn animation, also termed as traditional animation and classical animation, is the oldest and historically the most prevalent form of animation. In a traditionally-animated cartoon, each frame is drawn by hand.This encloses any form, where one drawing is put back by another in a progression. Each drawing is somewhat unusual from the one which is placed before.

    Animated films are made up of thousands of drawings, depicted on screen very rapidly one after the other. It works in the same manner as the flip book does.
    Cut-out animation– The world’s earliest known animated feature film was cutout animations, made in Argentina by Quirino Cristiani. By using flat characters, such asstrings, stiff fabric, props and backgrounds cut from materials such as paper; and by using buttons, matchsticks or even photographs, you can create cut-out animation. It embraces any figure of animation where cut-out forms be in motion or substitute by the other cut-outs.
    Model animation or stop motion animation– Model animation is a form of stop motion animation designed to merge with live action footage to create the illusion of a real-world fantasy sequence.

    By using materials, such asclay, wire that can be bent or formed into another shape, you can create model animation. This engrosses the filming of puppets or any other form of three-dimensional models. Before moving slightly and screening, it is placed, filmed and than these shots are placed jointly as a section of the film and will give the hallucination of moving models.
    Computer animation or Computer Generated Imagery (CGI)– Computer animation is the skill of building the moving images by means of computers. This refers to the portrayal of three-dimensional models and locations on the computer. Images can be scanned into the computer via digital photography or made within the computer itself. To produce the delusion of movement, an image is presented on the computer screen which is swiftly put back by the new image that is alike to the preceding image, but shifted to some extent. Computer animation is basically a digital successor to the art of stop motion animation of 3D models and frame-by-frame animation of 2D illustrations.

    In a method known asTweening or Morphing, the variations in appearance between the key frames are automatically considered by the computer and finally Animation is rendered at the end.
