Just watched the first Sopranos episode again. It’s something mildly obsessive like my eighth watch-through (albeit over fifteen years).Even though I know the plot well, I get something new out of it every time. The layers and the poignancy are incredible. This first episode alone has to be amongst the greatest hours in all of television.
Screening of the film with orchestra playing along live – and with Philip Glass himself on keyboards.At first a novelty and then increasingly hypnotic; at turns beautiful, disorientating and meditative.
The best compliment I can pay Super Hexagon is that it's the sort of game Eugene Jarvis (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_Jarvis) would have made had iOS been around in the age of Defender and Robotron.
It's adrenaline fast, infuriatingly hard and compulsive with strobing vector graphics and insistent techno. It's Tempest gone rogue.
