September 25th, 2020

Throughout this week, we’ve been featuring stories on Quad-Cities band Einstein’s Sister, which is releasing its first record in almost two decades this weekend, during Record Store Day at CoOp Records in Moline. The band – Kerry Tucker, Bill Douglas, Marty Reyhons, Steven Volk, and Andy Brock – is releasing a double-A side single, “Standing Still” and “Begin Again,” on transparent blue vinyl.

It’s The Video You Deserve, and M M M M M To The B, M To The B…

September 21st, 2020

The Video You Deserve does not live on vintage videos alone. Sure, most weeks we give you a cheesy video to start your week, when we drop The Video You Deserve every Monday morning, usually one from the early days of the video in the ’80s and ’90s, but sometimes we mix it up to reflect more current videos that are just as cheesy and strange. Like this week’s entry. If you, or a child or friend, is on TikTok, you’ve undeniably heard the following line: “We all know the best MC is M to the B It’s M to the B It’s M M M M M to the B Bang!” Usually though,... Read More

‘Tenet’ A Beautiful, Big Scale Mind Bender

September 18th, 2020

Director Christopher Nolan started tinkering around with the concept of time many years ago on a much smaller budget with 2000’s “Memento.” I liked it so much that, on a visit to the Twin Cities, I took a girlfriend and her husband to see it, my second time through it. It was unique, original, interesting, exciting and it didn’t run 150 minutes. It was even nominated for Best Original Screenplay at that year’s Oscars. We’ve now been treated to “Memento’s” successors from Christopher Nolan: “Insomnia (2002); “The Dark Knight Trilogy” (2005-2012); “The Prestige” (2006);... Read More

Netflix’ ‘Social Dilemma’ Is A Dark, Must-See Mirror Into Our World

September 18th, 2020

There are very few shows you can deem “must see” anymore, although not as much due to their quality, as due to the fact that not many shows can truly be described as being targeted for a wide audience anymore. We live in a world that’s become increasingly fragmented and subdivided, and invariably there are few things upon which the vast majority of the population can agree. Entertainment used to be the great uniter of the people. When television began to rise to prominence in the ‘50s and ‘60s, cultural touchstones were based upon events it showcased. The Beatles on Ed Sullivan. The finale... Read More
