TILT Music Blog – My Favorite Albums in 2008

October 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Over the past few years I’ve been part of a music message board (Pulso Rock) where at the end of every year we post our individual favorite albums that we’ve listened to that particular year but released that same year.  It has slowly become a nice little tradition that we still continue.  So I decided to start documenting on my own blog my choices and perhaps give a little bit more information on my choices.   I will start with previous years and later on I’ll include my 2010 picks (considering I’m still adding to the list).  There will be albums in English and in Spanish and sometimes maybe even on another language.So I hope you enjoy my lists and share with me on the comments what have been your favorite albums of such years.  If you click on the artwork of each album you’ll be taken to the group’s MySpace page so you can listen to some of their music, if my two liners and the art entice you.  If you click on the artist’s name, for the ones that have a hyperlink, you can go to a previous review I’ve done about that particular group in my blog.

Graphic Novel Review – The Runaways

November 14, 2008 Leave a comment

At first I was not too attracted toward this story. It had too much of a manga feel to it, and I don’t care for that particular style. The only thing that kept my interest was the writer, whom I have reviewed a few times. Bryan K. Vaughan, together with Adrian Alphona, got this story of Runaways going for Marvel Comics. Read more…

TILT Music Blog – Tony Christie (Made In Scheffield – 2008)

A casualty of destiny got the music of this artist right on my lap.  One of those invites that one tends to ignore on the myspace social network, only this time I just went ahead and listened to Tony Christie’s music.  I must say it’s been a while since I’ve heard something like this without looking for it.

TILT Music Blog – Faded Paper Figures

October 31, 2008 2 comments

It’s been a while since I’ve come across a group that makes me want to write about them.  I keep looking but either I’m getting pickier or there is nothing out there impressing me.  Then I decided to give Faded Paper Figures a listen and I must say it’s good to get what you crave when you are craving it.

Graphic Novel Review – The Watchmen

October 3, 2008 Leave a comment

The graphic novel world has a variety of subjects for one to read.  Most of them are easy reads that combine a quick story with some nice graphics.  Sometimes what you get to read is so complex yet well structured that it hits you like a ton of bricks.  That was my experience with The Watchmen.  Yes, I know I’m twenty years late, and there are probably a ton of reviews about how marvelous it is.  Still, as a new person entering the graphic novel world, I feel compelled to share what I’ve absorbed from this work.

Graphic Novel Review – The Hood

September 12, 2008 Leave a comment

After having read a few dozen graphic novels this past year, I’ve started to track previous works of the writers I’ve liked so far.  That’s how I came across The Hood.  Written by the creator of Y: The Last Man, Bryan K. Vaughan, this story brings us the perspective of a villain and his inner demons and who he really is; yet that might be more rethorical than anything else. Read more…

TILT Music Blog – Manos De Topo

September 9, 2008 1 comment

This entry is going to be a tough sale for some.  I’ve sometimes read description of his style of music as Bizarre Pop so you can see where I’m going with this.  Manos De Topo is an indie group from Spain localized in Barcelona that have slowly but steadily grown their fan base by playing the tune of being different.
