For this episode of Most People Are DJs I am reviewing 2 recent movies, Kevin Smith's Tusk and Ti West's The Sacrament. These thrillers would make a great double feature as they are both first person accounts of terror and use new media to drive part of the storyline. Looking up both movies up on IMDB, Tusk actually has a higher score than The Sacrament, but as i state in the reviews, The Sacrament is the better movie. The music I play this episode is by female fronted bands, Electric Youth and Ashrae Fax. You can find both songs on the latest sampler from Under the Radar, a great new music magazine. 

Upcoming Cons I will be taking pics at:

Great Lakes Comic Con Oct 17 & 18
Flint Horror Con Oct 25
Youmacon Oct 30 - Nov 2
Fantasticon Nov 8

On this episode I mention that the TV show Gotham is starting this week. I was able to watch the pilot last night and found it both entertaining and engaging. There’s even more Batman characters and references than I expected. From the pilot it looks compelling enough to keep me watching week to week, rather than marathoning it every few weeks.

The features on this episode are 2 bands I’ve been enjoying lately, The Superhumanoids and GroupLove. The bands go well together because there are many similarities they share. They are both from LA, have male and female singers and have a bit of hip hop seeping in their sound. I blogged about the Superhumanoids last week. The track I play from the Superhumanoids is “Feel Good Hit of Summer” which is a Queens of the Stone Age cover.

I saw GroupLove earlier this summer at 89X’s Chill on the Hill, I was blown away with the energy and charisma of GroupLove. I expected them to be good as I like most of their songs, but they were really spectacular. They have a great presence, mostly due to the female singer, Hannah Hooper, who dances around the stage while whipping her hair. Their latest album is “Spreading Rumors” and shows a good progression, further defining their sound. Their Captain Cutz remix to “Colours” is the featured track.

You can download the 2 tracks from this episode on Soundcloud and both artists have their music available on Spotify.

Some people spent their labor day with family, others spent it doing yardwork. I spent a lot of mine watching the new Amazon Prime Pilots. On this episode I review all 5 of the new pilots. I'll let you know which ones I liked best and which ones I liked least. I do think you should give them a shot for yourself, as each one has good production and compelling elements. Overall, this is a much better attempt by Amazon compared to last year's pilots. I referred to two posts for info on the shows that you should check out as well, one from IGN and the other from Entertainment Weekly

The track featured on this episode is "Colours" from the band Wild Cub. Wild Cub is from Nashville and are one of the best new indie pop bands I have come accross. I saw them play recently at a festival and even with an early timeslot they attracted quite a lote of enthusiasm from the crowd. The photo for the episode is a pic I took of the lead singer, Keegan Dewitt. You can download this track from the latest CMJ compilation.

My podcast affiliate for this episode is Audiobooks.com, where you can get 2 free audiobooks when you sign up for a membership and use my special promo code Tech2. With limited time to actually read a book, I've been getting back into audiobooks and really enjoying them. Using the Audiobooks.com app on my cellphone to listen to the audiobooks in my car and on walks has made keeping my place in the audiobook hasslefree.

Is it me, or, do we seem to have fewer hours in a day these last few months? I could swear that’s the case because I seem to get less and less accomplished as time progresses. However, I was able to squeeze in this podcast episode just to let you know that I still speak into a mic and record it to share with the world. On this episode I play a couple of synthy tracks, a danceable one from Teeel, “Disk Go” from his recently released album “Hydrostatic”. The other song is by Kwamie Liv on a free ep she released a couple weeks ago. Her track “5am” is less dance and more moody as her voice recalls a cabaret singer from the 50’s.

On another part of the show is a conversation I had with Nik Havert talking about his time at Flashback Weekend. Nik Havert is a comic writer, scary movie host, music critic and a whole lot more, you can check all of his ongoing activities at Pickle Press. Nik had a booth at Flashback Weekend for his just released Candi 2089 comic featuring Samantha the Muscle Goddess. We talk about the festival and his Victor Von Psychotron alias that he uses in YouTube clips and Cable TV hosting classic sci-fi and horror movies. This is just a small part of a conversation that we’ll be hearing more from in future episodes.

As far as things that I am working on you can see my set of photos from the Mad Decent Block Party Detroit show on the MetroTimes slideshows page and more of my pics are featured at my MPAD Media facebook page.

So much time has passed since my last podcast I’ll bet you might think you thought I podfaded. Well, you can set aside your fears as Most People Are DJs may rust but it will never fade away! This is a catch up episode to let you know all the activity I have been up the last few months, including comic conventions like C2E2 and Motor City Comic Con and Movement, Detroit’s electronic music festival. Some of the celebrities (at least in my book) I met along the way included cosplay superstar, Yaya Han, Katie Cassidy from Arrow and hipster rap artist, Riff Raff Pics.
In the beginning of the show, I also talk about the positive and negative aspects to doing an email interview. The end part of this episode I play some clips from my interview with Marc Evan Johnson and Ben Blacker from the Thrilling Adventure Hour Podcast. They talk about how Marc became the voice of Sparks Nevada and what it’s like being backstage at a TAH show. Besides the podcast, Marc and Ben are working on a hundred different things, Marc did a pilot called Fatrick and Ben is doing a run on Marvels Thunderbolts.You can read my post from the interview at Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth. If you are at San Diego Comic Con you can catch the TAH crew performing and hanging out.
The music from the show is taken from 8-Bit Operators “Enjoy the Science: A Tribute to Depeche Mode.” A new 8-Bit collection of Depeche Mode covers that are brilliant and interesting takes on 15 of Depeche Mode’s best songs.

On the episode I preview C2E2, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, a convention that brings the best of pop culture to downtown Chicago. A convention that is packed with so many cool things and people this will make the 3rd year I will travel from Detroit to experience the show.

On the the podcast I'll cover the panels and others things I am checking out at the show. You can read my full blog post preview for C2E2 over at The Movie Slueth, a great movie review site I am conributing to. Also on this episode I am playing music from Tunde Olaniran, an electro hip hop artist that I've played before and interviewed. The song "The Internet" features James Linck and is one of the highlights of Tunde's amazing live show.

On this episode I play music from 2 DJs and talk some TV. Heavygrinder is a DJ that plays a mix of metal and electro. Her sets are some of the most energetic that I have experienced. The song I feature from her is a recently released remix she did of NIN's "Into the Void." If you want to keep up with Heavygrinder you should like her facebook page. Tokimosta is a DJ that mixes soul, hip hop and even some jazz into her music. She has remixed artists like Hundred Waters and release her last record on Skrillex's record label.

This past year and into 2014 has been a very good year for TV shows. The two shows that I've been most into are HBO's True Detective and Netflix's House of Cards. Both of these shows feature well constructed characters and plots that keep you guessing what is going to happen next. The shows are so good that I want more of an experience than just watching the shows so I am checking out show related podcast. Bald Move does a great job covering House of Cards and for True Detective I am listening to True Detective Truth Squad. Both of these shows can be found on iTunes podcasts.

For even more TV talk I feature a few comic book friends of mine talking about their favorite TV shows. My comic book friends include: Dirk Manning, Jordon Trovillion, Ryan Stegman and Jim Towe.

For this episode I have developed a way of giving you the excellant things I've come across using as many forms of media as I can get my hands into. First there is the video that you see above which is a quick 5 minute youtbe video using my pictures and graphics about the topics I cover. Then, there's the podcast where I spend a bit more time on each subject giving more details. My first topic is the short film ABE which I found on the short of the week website. Then I move into music with 12th Planet a DJ that continues to expand and redefine dubstep. His latest smogcity mixtape gives you a good tatse of his music along with others on his Smog label. The Mast is a duo from Brooklyn that play etherael pop music. The track I play is "Nuclear Dragon" from the January CMJ mixtape. Lastly, Comixology has their site for indie comic people to submit their comics, which is a great way to publish comics independently. If you have the time try watching the youtube video and listening to the podcast. If you want to keep up with all things I am working on "like" the MPAD Media page on facebook.

I’m in the middle of diving into Macland while one of feet still remains firmly planted in PCville so please bear with me a little as I work my through of getting to a podcast format I’m truly happy with. This episode I am primarily trying to use my Macbook and IMovie, however, most of the material was produced on my HP laptop. Many of the photos you see in this 6 minute episode are pictures I’ve taken with my camera or images that I’ve edited for the show. On this episode I profile the electronic music duo Odesza. Be sure to check their website out where you can download their music for free. Next I cover the film short, The Flying Man, an astonishing little movie that stands on its own but also makes a great first chapter of what could be (and hopefully will be) a longer movie. The short looks great and is absolutely, devastatingly shocking even on the small screen.Featuring a short film will be continue to be a part of MPAD whenever I can fit it in.

My last topic, ISSUU , is a subject I’ve covered before, but I want to make sure people check the ISSUU website and app out because there is so much great content to get at ISSUU. Each MPAD episode I am going to feature a picture I’ve taken and give you the story behind it. This photo was taken at the same show I saw Odesza play and it’s 2 of the more interesting people I saw in the crowd. I like to think of them as “Hipster Heroes.” As always you can email your questions or comments to mostpeopelaredjs@gmail.com.

Here are a few great things that came together this week:

Back when I was reviewing magazine reading apps I mentioned how much I liked Issuu and wished it had an app. Well it looks like sometimes wishes do come true because Issuu just released their app for Andriod available at Google Play. Like the Issuu website the app houses thousands of digital magazines in an easy to use, appealing interface. I've used it on my Nook and I really like what I am seeing. You can read more aout the app here.

My first article for Real Detroit Weekly was printed on paper and online this week. I profiled hip hop artist Charlie Beans who is hosting an album release show for his new album How Dare You. The album is available for free download at bandcamp, you should check it out. 

One of my favorite new bands, I Break Horses, from Sweden announced their first headlining tour of North America. With a stellar, synth pop sound and captivating vocals, their track "Faith" has quickly become an avid listen for me.
