John Carpenter – Christine (Official Music Video)

You can’t beat a killer car.

In advance of Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 (available on October 20), John Carpenter released a mesmerizing new music video for “Christine.”

With gorgeous long shots, impeccable cinematography, and moodiness to spare, “Christine” is a top-form John Carpenter taking the reins behind the lens. It’s simply stunning.

Baby Driver (2017)

The lights dim; a less-than-witty set of M&Ms remind us to quiet our cell phones; and then something strange happens. Writer/director Edgar Wright thanks us for “getting off the couch” to see Baby Driver as it was intended: in a movie theater.

With the rise of Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, and Amazon Prime Video, being a part-time couch potato is all the rage. From Game of Thrones to Transparent, binge watching long-form media is part of our cultural currency. Not only are these stories marvelously performed, written, and directed, but they’re an easy way for us to quickly relate to one another. Discussing the entertainment we consume is a shorthand approach for creating meaningful connection. Read more…

White Lies

I really like this song a lot. It’s from a movie Adrienne and I watched called A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. You need some context to understand the scene…the girl is a vampire and maybe these two are falling in love…maybe she just wants to drink his blood…or maybe both.

Fun in sunny Los Angeles!

The West toured down to SXSW this year. We met so many wonderful people, stayed up way too late, and partied hard for 14 days. It was a blast. Here’s a pic of Adrienne in sunny Los Angeles.

The West made it back to Seattle from tour on Sunday night. Thanks for spreading the word and coming out to see the shows!

In other news, I lost 5 pounds on tour on a diet of bar food, beer, lack of sleep, and way too much partying. #tourlife #thenewatkins

We’re playing this Sat. Apr. 26th at the High Dive w/ Jupe Jupe and The Jesus Rehab. 9PM.
