Last night, we went to see a screening of the 1927 film, Metropolis, at the Alamo Drafthouse. The film was provided a new score by Golden Hornet Project, featuring Graham Reynolds. Reynolds provided the awesome score for (and in my opinion the best part of) 2006's A Scanner Darkly. The performance was great. I recommend it, if they ever do it again.
After the show, I was looking at the merch table and discovered this gem...
I wasn't sure what it was, but I knew it was a DVD. The cover and title sold it, for me. Long story short, it's amazing. Steph and I watched it, when we got home, and loved every minute of it. You can order a copy through resipiscent.com. Check out these excerpts I found on Youtube...

Here's the description of the video, from the website: "Savant-idiot video collaborations from the founding members of Brown Whörnet were never gathered, until now. From unholy rites of gall bladder extraction and enlickment, to awful animation, avian snuff, and film concret, they anticipate tv's Tim and Eric by years. And even if their gut slugging Ruins-esque wretchrock came after Ruins, recreating their 1997 cassette on this DVD with scopitonic oscillators is still way ahead of anything no one still hasn't tried yet. Curious? Uh huh. Stunned to drooling or screaming in painful leaking laughter, you'll want an absorbent bib when you set your head in front of Aaaartfÿstte. Super limited. Four-color silkscreen package by Stin-G with handcarved block-prints-from-video by Lucy Antler."
