You can’t remember, can you? We’ve all played it sometime, when we were kids; but never recently, and why?
Because it’s crap. It takes ages to play, suffering long action-free periods in which the players endlessly circle the board in search of the streets they need to complete a set, and lacks the interaction between players that we look for in a game. In short, it’s boring and lacks skill.
Except that it isn’t crap. Actually. You just have to play it the way it was designed to be played. You just have to read the fucking rules.
Well would you at that… I’ve been playing wrong all these years.
Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed. This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass’ Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder’s design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.
An absolutely beautiful “title sequence” about title sequences.
Truly beautiful stuff. I think my favourite moments have to be Binder, Cooper and Yount.

Unfortunately at this time, purchasing music and promotional code redemption are restricted to US residents.
In other words: thanks for giving us your money, no we won’t be giving you what you purchased.
In all fairness, I purchased this LP for the purposes of having it on vinyl, but since my turntable is not currently in my apartment was looking forward to grabbing the digital download in the interim. No dice.
To be clear: no where on the card included with the vinyl does it mention that the offer is restricted to the US only. No where on the packaging for the vinyl itself (which states in bold lettering that a digital download is included) does it note that the download is for US customers only.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: People will gladly pay you for content if you let them. But since you don’t then they’ll just have to get it elsewhere (read: steal it).
