Corrupting Celest: The Fall From Grace

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement....

As some may know, I spend many evenings streaming on Twitch, and every so often I drop in on other channels, one of which is that of FNDanteSavagte (twitch.tv/fndantesavage)  and not to long ago, he made mention that he was in a band that released an album. The band was Corrupting Celest and the album, released in 2007, was The Fall From Grace, which from what I can tell, was released on the Konkshoo Record label.

The album over all is without question a product of its time period, with a very 'indy rock' sound in terms of the instruments being played, some times hard and heavy (The Worst Thing, If You Let Me) others slow and melody driven (The Fall From Grace, In This Dark)... and that's okay, if the signing was up consistent.... now I have no problem with 'screaming metal', but it is quite clear that the lead singer was at his best when not having to scream at the top of his lungs.

Which leads me to say that the best overall track is Sins of Me, it's something I could easily picture having some radio play, nice to listen too, and presents, in my opinion, a style the band was best at.

Finding the album itself these days is a bit tricky, I was lucky to grab the last copy off of Amazon, but you can find it on YouTube by clicking HERE

Final Fantasy IV: Beaten!

On March 8, 2017 I started played Final Fantasy IV, pretty casually a couple of nights of week, not really doing fully into it, and on April 16, 2017, with 38 hours of game time, I finished it! Keep in mind, there were a lot of screw ups on my part.

Now I will admit that I did not get through this game alone, my buddy StooDogg of the Tribbles in Ectasy podcast helped with looking up how to beat various bosses, also FelKimchi, AgentManafesta and the FNDanteSavage along with other members of Team Emmmmsie gave strong support as I made my way through the game.

And now for your viewing pleasure the final battle...

Camden Comic Con 2017

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

Today was the 4th annual Camden Comic Con held at Rutgers University in downtown Camden, New Jersey, and unlike last year, it was bright and sunny! Yes we got all of the rain out of the way on Wednesday of this week!

While I was there I was actually recognized by one of the founders of the C3, I do have a rather distinctive look, and learned a little bit about how it got started. Turns out it was due to a one-off event regarding local artists and people loved it, and it turned into a great annual event.

Speaking of familiar fac, met Diana Leto, Mike Capprotti, Fernando Jimenez, Jeff Schultz, Jen Tracy (Who told me about the No Sleep podcast that I'm looking forward to checking out), Ryan Brady, Phillip McNulty & Jay Taylor, all of who I met last year, it was great chatting them briefly, and I had a rather long talk with Mark Holmes (the long time writer of FemForce) and learned of a film he made that I intend to track down. Also met Brian Donnelly author of Tir Na Full (which I picked up and he autographed, along with Mr. McNulty who was the cover artist).

I attended two panels this time, one being Birth of a Superhero, which was a history of what lead to the early Superheroes in comics and 'Hell & Back Orphan Black', which tied several mythological stories to the character of Helena from the hit television show.

Now I could've easily stayed longer, but if I did, I would've been easily tempted to overspend (which is easy to do), but did pick up a few things, a Speedy Funko figure, a mystery bag of goodies, a few comics (Including the latest issue of Mr. Brady's The Bolt)

All in all a very enjoyable experience, just like last year, except as I said it was bright and sunny!
