Why Ed O’Brien is Awesome…

Part, I dunno, VI, I think? Anyway, here are a few more great examples of Ed’s guitar work (and work as a badass, in general):

As you can plainly see, Ed has written an amazing guitar part that creates the entire ambiance and atmosphere in this song, which is the most important part of ‘Let Down’. If you were to strip away the vocals, this song would have the exact same effect, emotionally, that’s a feat in and of itself in rock music. Also, getting that tone of a Rickenbacker is amazing.

One of my favorite songs, off of one of my least favorite albums. Ed’s guitar work here is great, simple, but great.

Seriously, Ed makes this song. Also, what the hell is wrong with the editors/producer of these kinds of live broadcasts? They never show the people who are soloing unless its the frontman…

Good Memories…

I just recently watched Robin Hood Prince of Thieves: Two Disc Special Extended Version and, boy, was it extended. I mean, this was a completely different movie than the one I remember from when I was a kid. There were completely different plot twists, character arcs and stories. Usually I hate extended versions, there’s a reason some scenes end up on the cutting room floor after all, but, seriously, this one kicked ass. For example, instead of the “Witch” actually being a witch, she was just an effed up mom with issues and some peep-holes. There are plenty of other examples but it would just be better if you got this bad boy for yourself.

Another thing this movie got me thinking about was all of the underrated performances in here. There were three or four that stood out:



Morgan Freeman as Azeem



Michael McShane as Friar Tuck



Alan Rickman as The Sheriff (obviously)


And Kevin Costner’s mullet…
