The Sleeper Awakens with the Dune Trailer 

Just about everyone’s waiting for Denis Villeneuve’s remake of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Having grown up on the David Lynch version (and making my way through the novel), it has some big shoes to fill. Thankfully, what we’ve seen of it so far seems interesting. Villeneuve…

Wait for It (by Leslie Odom, Jr. and the Original Cast of Hamilton) 

With Broadway’s Hamilton finally hitting Disney Plus, there are so many great musical pieces to choose from .I love the energy of “Wait For It”. The below video, from Momo, contains the lyrics for the song, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Enjoy.

Trip Like I Do (by the Crystal Method) 

“Another World…Another Time. In the Age of Wonder.

This land was green and good, until the crystal cracked…”

With the release of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Netflix, the original Jim Henson film was on my mind and warranted a re-watch. Though the film was made in 1982, I wouldn’t see the film for the first time until a trip to Oregon about a decade ago. While I was there, my friends and I decided to rent some old films like Tron and Willow. When we started The Dark Crystal, the opening monologue started with the same phrase, which was a happy surprise. I knew that opening from the Crystal Method’s “Trip Like I Do”, off of their 1997 album, Vegas.

Trip Like I Do was a fantastic song, but it was pretty much eclipsed by the remix, made for the movie Spawn that came out in the same here. “Can’t You Trip Like I Do” was a collaboration with Filter, and for some, it’s considered the superior version of the song. Still, the original’s slow start is pure electronic bliss. Just as you’re gotten yourself adjusted to the beat that comes along, the song then shifts into high gear, perfect for night driving.

The Vegas album was an important one for The Crystal Method, as other songs were also used in movies like The Replacement Killers (Keep Hope Alive).

Enjoy.
