Feet up and SURPRISE!
Just realised @guyritchie is behind that one...so far so good, his film making style gels very well with the cast, visuals rock and the Digital EX audio track is well balanced with clear dialogues.
Every single time I sit down to write, I always have music going. Sometimes it a specific “soundtrack” I have in mind that matches the tone of my story. Two Steps from Hell is one of the best names for this that I could recommend. This company makes EPIC music for movies and film trailers. What kind of music pumps you up? #twostepsfromhell#greatsoundtrack#epicmusic

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) "You can shovel crap, can't you?"
16 April 2019
The scenario for "Beyond Thunderdome" was originally a post-apocalyptic adaptation of "Lord of the Flies," subsequently modified and converted into the third part of the "Mad Max" franchise. The budget jumped from two to ten million dollars, and Gibson is no longer the only big name, because he's now sharing a movie with fantastic Tina Turner. In addition to the role of the main "villain", Tina is also credited with the song "We Don't Need Another Hero", which entered the legend and to this day has remained one of her greatest hits and one of the biggest hits of film music in general. The word "villain" I put in quotes because this time the story is far more complex than in the previous films and deviates from the black-and-white pattern of the good against evil, representing us a post-apocalyptic future in the shades of gray. The characters are numerous, diverse and quite realistic, so who's the good guy and who's the bad depends on from whose perspective we chose to look at the story. For me, this is one of the strongest trumps of the movie, and with the visual spectacle and good music, it earned the movie a strong eight.
Hear me and @gmreevesjrauthor on the 24th as we discuss a couple of our childhood favorites; The Legend of the Lone Ranger and Zorro: The Gay Blade. Both can be found on YouTube for free. So check the movies out and let us know what you think.
How good is this? That opening track (I Got) So Much Trouble in my Mind sets it rolling splendidly.
It's rare you can find a bar these days that doesn't force-feed you a generic wishy-washy MOR (or sometimes even worse turgid AOR) soundtrack to accompany similarly uninspiring bar drinks.
But those cats at @hullabaloobarshipley offer you something different.
Yep, in the heart of Shipley, West Yorkshire there can be found a cool, laid back bar which benefits hugely from friendly, attentive bar staff, a good solid range of drinks & (possibly most importantly) a high quality soul & funk driven soundtrack.
Though I consider myself to be pretty well versed in all things funk & groove, I've been blown away by two new artists (to me) since drinking in this fine watering hole. That's because Jimmy (the guy who runs the whole shebang) knows his stuff even better than me. He must do!
He's introduced me to the extraordinary afro- funk sounds of Brigth Engelberts & The B.E. Movement & also the cool sophisticated soulful funk of Sir Joe Quaterman & Free Soul in recent weeks!
Beautiful stuff both. I gladly now own & this fine copy of Quaterman's sole LP on #GSFRecords . Picked up the CD with all his bonus material too.
It's SO rare for me to find myself influenced (in a good way) by hearing fresh, new sounds (usually 'old' & recorded using analogue equipment) at the age of almost 50 whilst sitting with my lovely wife in a bar in 2019.
