One Hello World - Soundtrack to your thoughts!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,   Bitter,Bitterometer,meter  

We’ve all had those moments where we thought to ourselves, “Wouldn’t it be cool if we had a soundtrack to our lives?” Well, thanks to “One Hello World” we can! And not only that, but it is original to your story, too!

The idea here is that you call in and leave a story, observation or memory on a voicemail that is taken and has a musical score added to accompany it, keeping the mood of the story and/or enhancing it.

In the latest (as of this writing) story, a young woman mentions that she would love for the moment of your death to be like sitting in a drive-thru watching the moments of your life and making new realizations you may not have had while in the moment. This track is the best yet and is really touching in a way.

You can check it out the above track HERE or visit the site with the rest HERE.

We will make an effort to get an interview about this project.

Underrated Films presents: Radio Bikini

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, Radio Bikini 1988Robert StoneRobert StoneJohn Smitherman, Kilon Bauno Bitter,Bitterometer,meter Radio Bikini(1988)
 

Bikini Atoll is a small, lost paradise in the waters of the South Pacific. In 1946, the island would be the site of the 20th century’s most horrible arsenal on display, sadly procured by our own country. Operation Crossroads was conducted by the U.S. Navy as an experiment to study the repercussions of a nuclear attack. Bikini Atoll was used as the base for the tests, driving the aborigines from their homes while service men and women could reside there during the length of the mission. “Radio Bikini” is a documentary of the events; a compilation of stock footage intertwined with testimonials by Bikini native Kilon Bauno and Navy veteran John Smitherman.

“Radio Bikini ” is perhaps a biased account of the controversial operation, one that places the American government as a self-righteous power that toys with the lives of its soldiers. While historians could debate the consequences or justification for such tests (and the film could be accused of lacking counterpoints), we were disturbed by the surreal nature of career documentarian Robert Stone’s first feature.

Toy Story 3 - Is the third time a charm... of doom?

Toy Story 3

“Toy Story 3” is the final chapter in the “Toy Story” saga (if “Twilight” qualifies as a saga, then so does “Toy Story”). It tells of the final moments in the history of these toys with their lord and master, Andy. Having branded the toys with his name, Andy abandoned the weaker of the toys by giving them to anyone who will take them or by re-enslaving them via eBay. Left with a handful of his favorites, he becomes bored and banishes them to the dark bowels of the toy chest. Woody (Tom Hanks) is the only one who can lead the toys to their salvation or to a quick ending.
