I thought I’d start a regular thing of posting the music I’ve acquired every month.  Knowing me, this’ll probably last 1 or 2 months, but I feel like posting it now – and no one here has ever complained about me posting too much.  So, here’s the stuff I bought in December.  Links are to the relevant Beatport page.

Jochen Miller – Red One
Boom Jinx, Andrew Bayer – To The Six (Matt Lange Remix) (the Original Mix is pretty good too)
Tycho – Coastal Brake (Original Mix) – Take a listen if you like chillout music
Clouded Minds – Fantasy Control (DJ Eco Remix)
Tranquility Base – Buzz (Breakfast Remix)

Cressida – Never Mind (Victor Dinaire & Bissen Remix)

I saw Avatar in 3D yesterday.  It was pretty good.  Someone called it “Dances with Smurfs” – and I guess that’s a fair approximation, but there are plenty of differences.

I’d have to say the story was decent – not extremely awesome.  It had heroes & bad guys sure – but nothing amazing.  The visuals, on the other hand, were damn near mind blowing.  The fact that it was in 3D probably helped, but I was continually impressed with the amount of detail that I saw on the screen.  I’d have to say the animation succesfully navigated the uncanny valley, but I could still tell I was looking at animation.  That said, it’s probably the best animation I’ve ever seen.
