So, tomorrow's Oscar night (although the often more entertaining and definitely more expletive-laden Independent Spirit Awards were today), and as always, I've got my favorites, though nothing this year is as important to me as Million Dollar Baby was last year. The recent buzz around Crash seems ill-placed - excellent film, very brave and honest... up until the last ten minutes, where it falls to cinematic pieces, complete with musical montage, "snow in L.A.!!1!", and amazingly-coincidental-connections contrivance theater. Brokeback seems more timeless and thus more likely to resonate with (open-minded) viewers decades from now, so I'll take it for Best Picture and Director (though Lee still has far more work ahead of him to make up for the green stink of Hulk). The Best Actor nominees continue to make the fairer sex pale in comparison - Hoffman, Ledger, and Phoenix (my favorite, but apparently a longshot) all gave amazing performances. For Actress, from what I've seen, I'll go with supposed lock Witherspoon, but I still need to catch Transamerica. I was "constantly" bored by Gardener, so I hope Williams brings in one more for BB and favorite Weisz is denied. Williams' Geisha score was a little schizophrenic, so I'll take the relative simplicity of Brokeback once again. Ditto with adapted screenplay; I'd like longshot The Squid and the Whale to take original though - Noah Baumbach's the shit.
Wait a second... this is a site about video game remixes and what not, and most people probably don't give a rat's tuckus what I think about this year's Oscar nominations. Ahh, well... damage done. Regardless of who wins what tomorrow, one of the most consistently amazing and increasingly prolific ReMixers of the last dozen months has been po! - along with co-conspirator Joshua Morse, he's been turning out some tight, inventive, hybrid electro-acoustic jams. This Mega Man 3 piece is no exception; to be frank, if you've enjoyed the last several mixes po's written or co-written, you shouldn't need any further convincing. po played guitar, bass, and violin for this take on the Gemini Man theme, and none of those three parts are particularly simple - he's a bonafide multi-instrumentalist, let there be no doubt. The violin solo at 1'42", where a funky clav panned right joins the EP, is definitely a highlight, and at 3'23" total, is the perfect way of rounding out the relatively brief mix and incorporating a new element to keep things fresh. The overall feel is a little warmer and funkier than past stuffs, but largely in a similar vein. Hopefully Mr. Yan will forgive my Oscar-tangent intro to his mix's writeup if I also add that his violin playing has really been bringing something different to the scene, and continues to add an ineffable quality to his already excellent compositions.
