Yup- “swamped”.  As in- very busy, nearly overwhelmed, barely afloat  …ok you get the idea.  Birthdays, holidays and anniversaries have consumed much of my time in the last few weeks, so not a lot of music news to report; mostly just my daily woodshedding.

I did manage to get out and see this:

I must say that I did not like this film as much as Prometheus. I am hoping a future director’s cut may change my mind. Basically- there was very little character development which killed the eventual, multiple scenes where different characters loose their partner/spouses but have to summon the strength to keep going (noticeably effortlessly).   The redeeming factor (for me) is the storyline and continuing saga of the ever-present Yutani. Worth the price of a matinee.

And I would be remiss if I did not mention seeing an extended preview for the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. Psyched!

Ciao for now. sg
