Lecture 21: “Hunger
Strike” - Temple of the Dog: Temple of the
Dog was the brainchild of the multi-talented Chris Cornell (lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Soundgarden) and intended as a tribute
to his close friend, the late singer Andrew
Wood (Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone). The band was
something of an early grunge super-group
- consisting of Cornell and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden along with four of the founding members of Pearl Jam (Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Eddie Vedder, and Mike McCready). Temple of the
Dog released one self-titled studio album in 1991. It went to #5 in
the Billboard 200 and produced the
hit single “Hunger Strike”
which climbed to the #4 spot in the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks. The
dual vocals by Cornell and Vedder are mesmerizing!
Lecture 21: “Smells
Like Teen Spirit” – Nirvana: Without question, the most influential of the Seattle
bands – and the one many critics consider the greatest – is Nirvana. To this day, Nirvana is also
considered to be one of the most important bands in rock history. The first
single released from their second album Nevermind (1991) reached #6 in the Billboard Hot 100, but the impact of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” went beyond the music charts.
Considered one of the best songs of all time, it came to symbolize, in the popular imagination, not just an
entire genre but an entire generation – Generation
Lecture 21: Here is the music video for Nirvana’s signature song “Lithium” from their seminal 1991 grunge masterpiece Nevermind. Written by Nirvana’s lead singer, guitarist and tortured soul Kurt Cobain, “Lithium” would not match the success of the band’s #1 mega-hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” rising only to #64 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1992.
Nevertheless, it was representative of the quiet/loud/quiet/loud
fluctuations that characterized so many of the band’s songs, and was
loved by the band’s fans. It was first recorded in April of 1990, but
the version we know and love – performed here – was recorded the
following year, 1991, with a revamped bassline by Krist Novoselic and more assertive drumming by the band’s new drummer, Dave Grohl, the beloved founder of the Foo Fighters.
Lecture 21: Neil Young and Crazy Horse perform the powerful rock anthem “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black” in 1991. The song first appeared on Young’s critically acclaimed and commercially successful 1979 album Rust Never Sleeps.
“Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black” – as well as many of his other songs –
would influence the sound and style of future alternative rock bands of
he 1980s and 1990s, such as Sonic Youth and The Pixies, and help earn
him the nickname the Godfather of Grunge. The song also became a
signature song of Young’s, and he played it at most of his concerts as a
loving homage to the spirit of rock and roll.
can’t believe i only just saw this clip for the first time today
Four genetically altered turtles and their Master seek to defend the innocent while keeping their existence a secret.
The puppet suits and animatronics were all well made and although they weren’t as realistic as they’d have been if they were made with modern CGI, they have more charm to them and are easier to watch. The best one is probably the first one because it’s a little darker and the lessons that the protagonists are being taught gives the narrative focus.
The fights can get rather repetitive, mainly because most of the enemies tend to look the same and there is only usually one or two that are distinct. The comedy is ok and keeps the atmosphere upbeat but isn’t usually the sort of humour that would actually make one laugh. The actor changes of some of the human characters can also be a bit odd, or sometimes they just don’t show up at all.
Even though the fights get repetitive, the choreography of them are good enough to maintain some interest and the better parts are often when the environment is used to perform some unusual move against the enemies. The creatures from the second film are good and added a little variety, although I’d been expecting Beebop and Rocksteady.
The second film is mostly a repeat of the first since it’s the same villain with a similar set-up and pretty much the same kind of gang. The third was enjoyable but left a lot of questions unanswered like why there was a legend of the turtles in the past further back than they went and where the time travel technology came from in the first place. It was also weird that in the third film Casey, April, and Splinter are basically ignored for most of the story.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 5/10 -Can’t find a better example of average-
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: 4/10 -It’s below average, but only just!-
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: 4/10 -It’s below average, but only just!-
-An actor who did stunts in the Donatello suit for the first film said that he got so hot in the suit that he had to drink a gallon of water a day to stay cool.
-A sub-plot from the second film that was cut involved the “secret of the ooze” being that it was created by aliens.
-On some dvd and blueray cases for the third film, the characters hold a sword instead of a sceptre, this is because earlier versions of the story would have had a magic sword instead.
