    From Deep Blue Something’s 1995 single “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” to Air’s latest album, Le Voyage Dans La Lune, inspired by the early French film of the same name, you can find many examples of bands drawing inspiration from the movies.

Here are some memorable lines that most of us ... (Read More)

    There are many things I love about living in the future. For example: video games look really cool these days. Cell phones have convinced people that mobile computing is cool.

    YOU BRED RAPTORS?: Egghead rockers Eplileptic Peat (real name Peter Rains/eight-string bass) and Zach Schmidlein (drums), who named themselves after a line in Jurassic Park. SOUND:Brainy, mellifluous, and a little twisted instrumentals “Our name is a question―the band is an inquiry, not a declarative statement,” says Peat. “I want people to like us but not know why.” BEST OF THE SUBWAY: Freak shows are welcome. Peat was sure they’d be laughed out of their MUNY audition. “I know we’re one... (Read More)
