Fidelity Wars Volume 8

Things seem to be going slower than ever, with more and more missed deadlines. But even if the pace has been slowing down the past year, things have not stopped, and I plan on continuing clogging up the intertubes with … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #120: Human Highway – “Duties Of A Lighthouse Keeper”

Seems Nicholas Thorburn has been more productive than I realized! Not only is he the frontman for the band Islands – which seems to release a new album about every other year on average – but he also been involved … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #119: Alvy, Nacho & Rubin – “Ya No Te Quiero Más”

Stephin Merritt once had the amusing idea of making The Magnetic Fields into a franchise of sorts, which he shared during a live interview. Different groups of people touring the world playing their songs, but using the band’s name. While … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #118: Antonio Banderas – “One Love”

Shrek was a decent film. Shrek 2 was a pretty good film. Shrek The Third was a pretty poor film. And Shrek Forever After, the final film (at least for now), was merely okay-ish. Story wise, the film is entirely … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #117: Boy George – “Felidae”

I recently saw the animated film Felidae, promoted as being a Katzenthriller. The film is German, was released in 1994, and is based on the German book by Akif Pirinçci by the same name. I watched the English language dub of … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #114: Jeff Bridges & Colin Farrell – “Fallin’ & Flyin'”

Crazy Heart was a rather disappointing film. It’s about a fictional has-been country musician, played by Jeff Bridges, and his attempt at getting his life back together. But the lows of this washed-up country musician’s life aren’t particularly low, and … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #113: Jeffrey Lewis – “Cult Boyfriend”

I think I’m warming up to Jeffrey Lewis. While I’m not yet a fan, I can definitely appreciate some songs of his and can see his overall charm and appeal. Amusing, clever lyrics from the urban outcast point of view, … Continue reading

Fidelity Wars #112: The Human Hearts feat. Franklin Bruno – “Inland Valley Water Table Blues”

Happy Halloween! Emh, I mean, jul. Or new year’s. Seems I have missed a few weeks and a few seasonal events, for which I apologize. I don’t have a particularly good excuse, other than my growing disdain towards mankind and … Continue reading
