Happy Friday! The movie event of the summer is upon us, in the form of The Dark Knight Rises. Are you as excited about it as I am? All signs point to it being one of the highest grossing movies of all time, if not THE highest. Reviews have been generally strong, even as the few critics who panned it have been getting death threats. It may not quite earn the respect and adoration The Dark Knight did, but hopefully it’s a fitting conclusion to the trio of films made by Christopher Nolan. If you went to a midnight screening, please don’t spoil it for me (or anyone else, for that matter). Let’s try and stay civil, and in a few weeks or months when everyone’s seen it we can have an open discussion about the film’s strengths and potential weaknesses. I already know the lack of Heath Ledger is going to be a problem, but we’ll see. Now before I get to this weekend-starting Pick Your Poison, a quick weekly reminder: Faronheit has a Facebook page. Come to think of it, the last couple weeks I haven’t been doing a great job of updating it regularly, but I promise I’ll try to do better with it. As for the collection of mp3s below, a few recommendations are in order for tracks from Animal Parts, California Wives, Domo Genesis & The Alchemist, The Dust Engineers, The Hood Internet, Jason Haywood and Videotape. In the Soundcloud section you’ll want to stream songs from Mellowhype, Stars, and Passion Pit’s remix of Of Monsters & Men. Have a great weekend!
