Reviewing music can be a tedious job. To create one, you have to take into account your interpretation of what the artist hoped to accomplish and meld it with how well you believe he or she accomplished this end, while also discussing how you feel about said hopeful interpretation accomplishment and what it means to accomplish such an interpretation… thusly. That was so heavy and confusing my brain exploded. But that is the motion my mind went into when our editor emailed me the latest by Not an Airplane, “It Could Just Be This Place”.

In the world of the entertainment industry, the artisans that usually gain the most attention are the ones that are always in your face: actors and actresses, directors, lead vocalists… Behind the show, however, are the artisans that make sure the attention-getters look and sound good: soundboard mixers, cinematographers, set designers, costume designers, and make-up and special FX artists.

We have a long and shameful history of first convincing people that they can act, and then allowing them to believe they can sing.

Never has a movie played off of recent global fears since Night of the Living Dead as has the upcoming movie Contagion, starring, well, everybody. 12 Monkeys just missed the cultural fear of epidemics. The Flash game Pandemic 2 came out, or got popular, after avian bird flu, swine flu, and the common cold ran rampant, so we could happily kill off the human race…except for Madagascar. So here is an easy, pictorial representation of what to expect from Contagion and its possible sequels.
