Exploding Head Movies Episode August 25, 2014

XHM #228 - "The age of selfie fulfillment" (2014 August 25)

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Clint Mansell's score to the 2013 film Stoker takes the mantle, though a profile on the artists performing at this year's Victory Square Block Party kicks things off.

The dogs days are about to leave us, much like the blackberries and potentially the wasps. The giants spiders and corn await. This episode feels like it's tripping over its feet at times, yet charging full steam ahead, champing at the bit. More metaphors need to be mixed here, like a house of cards lined up like dominos in prepartion of checkmate.

Let's get on with it.
