The King of Shadows

Feat. The Music of Pink Floyd

“All that you touch, and all that you see…

If the profile pic is any indication, I have a thing for shadows. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting today’s Solar Eclipse, which is visible from North America, where I happen to reside. Continue reading “The King of Shadows”

EFC 2.07 – Dr. Strange

Feat. The Music of Cold War Kids, and Earth, Wind & Fire (In a Special EFC Music Video!)

“You’re a man looking at the world through a keyhole, and you’ve spent your whole life trying to widen that keyhole – to see more, to know more. And now, upon hearing that it can be widened, in ways you can’t imagine, you reject the possibility.”

The famed mythologist, Joseph Campbell, said that Step #1 in The Hero’s Journey is The Call to Adventure. The caller, of course, is The Universe, and it wants the hero to undergo a transformative experience of some kind. But the hero must pick up the phone in order for the journey to commence.

Last year, Netflix released a television series that was so incredibly briljant, that I finished it twice in one weekend. Yes, I am not kidding. The series was an homage to everything 80’s and managed to create an atmosphere that I had not felt since movies like E.T. or Stand by me. That series was called Stranger Things and it was everything that an 80’s junkie like me could have dreamed of. Stranger Things was simply perfect, and it had only one negative point to it as far as I was concerned: it only had 8 episodes. Being such a huge succes, it would have been erm strange, if a second season would not have been announced. Ofcourse it was, and since then I have been eagerly awaiting news or the first images of the second series. Besides a very short 15 second  teaser, it all was deceptively quiet. Until…

EFC Classics – Lost Highway (1997)

Feat. The Music of Lou Reed

“I like to remember things my own way… Not necessarily the way they happened.”

I was halfway through my 2nd viewing of David Lynch’s Lost Highway (1997). It must have been daytime, for a narrow ray of sunlight shone through the barricaded window of my apartment living room, which now resembled Plato’s cave. I was a prisoner in this artificial nocturne of my own device. My only knowledge of the outside world came via the shadowy figures on the television screen in front of me.
