New Name New Style

Hello all!

It has been decided for this site to have a makeover. The site will now be specifically depicting movies, in their realm of criterion collection, classics, cults and craps.

This site was originally viewed to be touching all of entertainment, and sports, but that didn’t take off to where we wanted. The interests are still there, but it is best to limit it to one.

This page now is covered by two people, (Dillon and Jake)  giving in depth writings, vlogs, and podcasts to cover movies. The podcasts will give us the chance to talk about all sorts of entertainment, but within these writings we want to cover all bases from Horror, to indie films.

The “cults craps and classics” will be explored every month. Formerly known as just “Cults and Classics” there had to be another listings for some of these films, as just pure crap.

There will still be biopic posts, with some other content, but primarily it will all be touched upon the artful creation that is film. Our future interests as filmmakers, writers and directors will benefit us both to create this niche.

Cine N Dine will distinguish future movies to see, and perhaps ones not to see. Dillon, our second staff writer will maintain vlogs and post them with in depth looks at what it was we watched for the week. It is exciting to update all of our creativity, and we hope you like it to! Give us a follow!

Happy Record Store Day To All

Today is national record store day! Please support your local store! It is dire and let the local companies continue to thrive in the music business that is now depleting by the second due to the digital era. I’ll tell you what music on vinyl is some of the best music you can hear and today you can find just what you want.
Stores like Newbury Comics and Bullmoose really thrive in entertainment music sales today, the local stores not so much, but if you have one from where you live it is a must to support them by all means! Whether you snag the latest and hottest record or the contemporary classics let Record Store Day be a place in your heart, or a place in your playlist, if you will.
Bands like the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden still perform music within local music industries. Bands today still recognize their roots and show its appreciation by this, and the fans support them at all costs.

Happy Easter Go Crank The Tunes

After your Easter Dinners please spend some time with your folks and family, by all means. If you aren’t about that life go watch movies and crank the tunes all day.

What I did, I found that Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” works best for the type of mood today. It sets the tone honestly and holds a sentimental tradition of what Easter should be. Relaxed, and memorable.

I then gave the ole turn table a spin with The Police, and Neil Young’s “Comes a Time” I realized now that Neil Young is one of those artists that just gets it, not to live anything in his life that is a gimmick and he sings from the heart. He indeed does have a heart of gold, but this album in particular chokes me up,  makes me think of my dad and all of the good times. Comes a time makes me think so much of changing into adulthood and really realizing things that you haven’t before, it’s that step into another part of your life that at some point everyone crosses. Whether it be adulthood or maybe just moments of realizations, there in fact does come a time.

This does its deed for me for sure. Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon”. So much can be said about this album and how one feels when channeling their life. Nick Drake’s success of course posthumously became unnoticed, and wasn’t seen in the same solidarity the poet and gifted writer wanted during that time period. Nick Drake certainly has the unknown qualities out of any musician with his given amazing talents Undoubtedly my favorite from him.

Bob Dylan being Bob Dylan, can’t get enough of this album and just what songs lyrically he can master. Blonde on Blonde really captures the classic feel to your Sunday. As it did for me as I was sipping my PBR and twisting my beard. Just kidding folks I don’t have a beard, PBR on the other hand.. Total hipster move. Nonetheless Blonde on Blonde filled the void my ears needed to ear.

Lastly I decided to jump into some random funkiness and played some Parliament. I have my random flashes of funk, and boy does it do the trick, a jumping blaze of pure originality with head banging worthy bass. So funky, and so right I played “Flash Light” over and over. I made sure to end my music sesh on a solid upbeat note. That is with any other times make sure you end music on a solid note, it’s a major key!

I chose these three albums because of how easing, unleashing and relaxing they all are. They are the type of albums that if they repeated no one would turn and wonder why no one changed the music. After what was an extensive day of family these seemed to have hit the spot for my hungry ear.

Cheers, Jake

The Cults and Classics of February

The winter time is never the biggest time for movies from January through March  so the search for cults and classics released within this time frame is definitely not the easiest. Every once and awhile you find some gems, and memorable ones but for the most part nothing. January and February movies are infamously known for movies that never quite deliver to grab your attention and are surely to be a complete bomb at the box office.


However, with the help of my good friend and correspondent Dillon Adair we have compiled a list of movies from this month’s release dates that weren’t so infamous, representing the Cults and Classics of February.


The Beach release date: Feb 2nd, 2000

‘The Beach’, starring a young Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tilda Swinton. Leo’s acting shows just the tip of the Iceberg to what acting chops he will accomplish for his future rolls. This movie is definitely one of his smallest and unknown rolls, but I still adore this movie for its landscapes, and paradise vibes. It all seems so precious to be within the moment of purity, and being on an island that no one knows about. Things are pure bliss, that is until things go askew and the whereabouts of the island become a known commodity. This movie is bar none a cult, it didn’t get well received, by critics, that may be because of its adaptation from the book that leave people scratching their heads. Nonetheless “The Beach” is underrated and holds intrinsic value towards original Leo fans, and those who love masterful landscapes.



The Harder They Come. release date: Feb 8th, 1973


The story of Jimmy Cliff, reggae musician whose dreams of becoming a musician is put into perspective. A young Jamaican man finds himself tied to corrupt record producers and drug pushers. This biopic is underrated, and this film does his music justice, no doubt. I have always listened to all kinds of Reggae and the record “The Harder They Come” is one of the most underrated records ever. The film maybe is not a masterpiece but the music is

This is also one of the biggest cult classics ever and it is very entertaining. The actor who played Jimmy has quite the vocal range himself. If you are a reggae fan, a Jimmy Cliff fan or just appreciate music altogether it is a must see film.



The Warriors Feb 9th, 1975


This movie is really a bit of both, being a cult and a classic. Truly brilliant angst, violence, and original on all levels. The concept is really a timeless and enchanting for just about everything. ‘The Warriors’ is a film that will make most viewers cringe at times, but you’ll forgive the shortcomings and praise with some exciting camera takes, the excellent use of music, and the good performance of David Patrick Kelly as the villainous antagonist. The character arcs are all on their own a work of great writing. The great moment in the movie is when Patrick Kelly, clicking together three soda bottles, coaxes the Warriors out of hiding by whining in what is a spur of the moment acting, “Warriors, come out and play!”



Saving Silverman Feb 9th, 2001


This movie became the revolution of all early 2000 comedies, like the American Pie series, and just about every other gag teen funny movie. ‘Saving Silverman’ however is of the few that actually worked with the help from actors Jack Black and Steve Zahn. This cult classic still never fails to make me laugh, and the chemistry between all of the characters is seemingly effortless. The endless obsessions with Neil Diamond all create a genuinality in this given film.



Silence of The Lambs February 13th, 1991


One of the most cringe worthy, and bad taste in your mouth kind of movie you could ever ask for. ‘Silence of The Lambs’ shall always live on, with the Jodie Foster’s incredible detective skills to Anthony Hopkins brilliant performance sending shivers down your spine. An absolute classic that should always be remembered. Not enough can be said, or put into words on how this movie translates into a psychological horror.



The Breakfast Club Feb 15th, 1985


Oh John Hughes, how I’ve missed your artistic directing and presence that gave us the great inspirations throughout the 80’s. My most beloved of his has to be this right here,‘The Breakfast Club’. I always admire movies that can be done in one single setting, with the same set of actors using all forms of creativity all in the same length of the movie. John Hughes’ pursuit in choosing these complete opposites says quite a lot about society in a day to day sequence. Here you have it in a school setting, 1980’s from sushi to eating pb&j’s. The rich kid or preppy girl, the bully, the jock, the weirdo, and the nerd. All in whom are serving the same amount of Saturday education time, for what was thought to be a drag became a memorable experience. Undeniably a classic.



Army of Darkness Feb 19th, 1993


Oh where to begin with this cult masterpiece? ‘Army of Darkness’ where taking from the satire end of things and tying it with some supreme violence and horror. This was a movie that paved the way for a lot of different horror comedies today. ‘Army of Darkness’ runs with spin offs and all sorts of serious moments followed up with comedic relief. The film really shows what fun can be created in the world of filmmaking with strong writing, pure creativity, and just having fun. The light is definitely shined over the darkness.


Office Space February 19th, 1999


What’s not to love about ‘Office Space’, honestly? So many quotes of “Yeah, that’d be great.”, and “You took my stapler.” After all these years it is still as funny as the first time I saw it. The fact of the matter however is that it is hardly ever mentioned, or remembered as it should be, like a ‘Clerks’, or ‘Jay and Silent Bob’. This only gives it more reason to be given the nod as a cult, and right where it should be.


Bottle Rocket Feb 21st, 1996


‘Bottle Rocket’ starring Owen and Luke Wilson in their debut acting roles, and now has since began the great start to their acting careers, as well as director Wes Anderson.’Bottle Rocket’ offers a long lasting adventure, with poignant film shots, and a clever dialogue to boot, all in which gave this movie it’s hidden treasures. Wes Anderson’s feel for his movies don’t go unappreciated, this movie was quite the start into his longed eccentric filming style. ‘Bottle Rocket’ reminds you of films you’ve seen before, but not quite in the same way and style done before, definitely a cult. The Wilson brothers have since carried on well, in their now twenty years of acting.

Hip Hop Revivalist’s In Brooklyn. The Rap Group Whose Doing It Right


You’ve been hearing the saying for the last decade: The very cringing attitude that Hip Hop is dead. Well if that is the case, it only makes that sooner or later a supreme group of undead glory would fall upon us to resurrect the dying genre and whisk us and our impure desires back into a portal of truth and understanding about the rap industry. Curdled into the society of East Coast New York has been a movement that has been going on for the better half of this decade. With talents such as ASAP MOB, Bodega Bamz, Action Bronzon, Joey Badass, Pro Era, The Underachievers and the late but untamed Capitol Steeze – The motion of unapologetic and roll-a-blunt-to-the-face antics that these artists have been shoving down our throats (whether we like it or not) has been the buzz all around and these boys may be the chosen ones to bring the hip hop crown back too the East. In a self given alias that pens all these artists to a super movement- BEASTCOAST is well and underway and are still making a statement. Deep in roots of New York cultural tropes and overused themes, these groups seem to step out further and beyond to restore and deliver faith back to the world of rap. There however, in this BEASTCOAST movement, is a 3 man army that stick out and deliver a harder punch than the rest. From the streets of Flatbush, Brooklyn is a breed of tomb raidin’ acid dappin’ pyscho-delic team of freaks of nature. Ladies and gentlemen, I am talking about The Flatbush Zombies.

The Hip Hop Trio consists of Meechy Darko AKA Count Rakula AKA The Baby of Rosemary’s baby AKA I AM NOT THE FATHA, possibly the unlabeled front man whose unmistakable voice and grimy cutthroat poetry drips through the speakers like venom or acid usual sets the town for these stellar tracks or he often wraps it up with banging hooks that are so catchy your ears might bleed and spew out coach roaches. The next in the show  is Zombie Jewice AKA ISAAC BLAZE. The Hippy Hardcore HypeMAN of the crew who will attack you with a burst of deathly energy but will also give you chills with a laidback highlight reel of pussy and weed. Jewice is a concoction of Easy E, whose influence is well used and treated appropriately, and a mix of a whole new breed completely. That is what i love about these guys. They sound like no other. Last in the group, BUT NEVER least. The man who creates the atmosphere, who brings life to their undead lyrics.. Eric Elliott AKA The Architect. The man who is often behind the scenes engineering the impeccable and one of a kind beats also puts his two cents on with often riveting and conspiracy ridden political barz. His intellect and social justice is monumental to this groups attitude.
In 2013 The released their project Better Off Dead. Hands down on of the best Hip Hop records and easily one of the most underrated in a long time. I am happy that they are not mainstream and selling out to corporations. These guys have been running their own merch and music page since they began. They are self made and nobody can stop them. Better Of Dead included nosebleeding headbutting hatred filled anthems such BIISS or LIVE FROM HELL and MRAZ . It share melodic masterpieces such as Palm Trees and G Tearz. The project even included catchy and energizing solos from each member (Jewice with MINEPHUCK.  Meech with GOD BLESS THE DEAD. ANd Arc with the impressive 222) 20+ tracks on this album and every single track is raw, well executed and purely genius.
After 3 long years with only a few singles from a scrapped EP entitled Day Of The Dead and a side project with NY friends and artists Underacheivers under the alias CLOCKWORK INDIGO it is safe to say that FBZ is back with their DEBUT album that will be released on Amazon, Itunes and there website The Glorious Dead. The new project 3001: A LACED ODYSSEY have already released a single called BOUNCE and that track alone will have all Flatbush fans and newcomers alike begging for more. In stores March 11 2016. I am more than happy to say they are back and are better than ever desired. I will be seeing them live in Spokane WA and yes there will be a blog and update on that. SO go check out these guys, if you are a fan of Hip Hop, you owe it to yourself.

IndieBall’s Favorite Sleeper Albums

I’ve always had the desire to write about underrated albums. The albums that was in my opinion of course, I wanted to finally. Of course it goes without saying bands such as the Beatles, Led Zeppelin can be already assumed onto this list, but of course here are the “un-assumable”.

Low- David Bowie

I always enjoyed the sounds of David Bowie, and gave potential to all of his albums, but then finding his Hunky Dory, and Low albums I grew to like him even more with his artistic ability. Low brings something so different that I can’t quite put my finger on.

Dear Catastrophe Waitress- Belle and Sebastian

Sing a song about Mike Piazza and you’ve got a hit. No pun intended, yeah really though this album is something and good relaxing symphonic sounds.

Funeral- Arcade Fire

Over ten years ago this album didn’t feel as appreciated until years after, thank you movie Where The Wild Things Are. I mean that sarcastically and also seriously, after the release of that movie it seems that Wake Up has blossomed once again for an encore. Neon Bible I found good but not as enjoyable. The latest albums have been a hit I feel. But looking Back to Funeral, I feel that banked a ton of their success.

Ga-Ga-Ga-Ga- Spoon

I still am a huge fan of this album. This album broke me into Spoon, and took me by surprise. The Underdog put in the catchy and fun loving feeling of my then 8th grader self. The album altogether clashes so brilliantly, it felt like there was some attitude and newly found spunk while making this. Also with original sounds and clashes.

Swing Lo Magellan- Dirty Projectors

Such an abstract, and peaceful album. I listen to this to really just unwind, but thanks to the song no trigger it broke me into their perspective and sound. With the song’s album title Swing Lo Magellan has a dare I say “Kink’s sound” to it and is rhythmically brilliant.

Here- Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

I found after their Up From Below album in 2009 with their hit song “Home” I drew immediate interest, but I also found the following album to be greater success in my ears. I just love the nostalgic sound, and while altogether the folk inspirations are there with an almost tunneling sound to “One Love To Another”. My favorite off the album is Dear Believer, as well as Child. You hear so much about “Up From Below” That you can’t realize that “Here” equally rivals it.

Midnite Vultures- Beck

This album seems to have gotten so much bad hype from the time of it’s release. With not taken seriously lyrics and such phony taste in music. I completely and entirely disagree this album is genious and just another level of talent to mark for Beck. While I will admit I recently listened to the full album for the first time ever this past month. Beforehand all I knew was “Sexx Laws”, it’s funky, groovy, and really fun. Hard to believe this album was just before his at the time most serious album in Sea Change. I love it.

Circuital- My Morning Jacket

This got me into My Morning Jacket, no question about it. Before I liked the song Gold, and Holiday but the whole album just incredible.

Doolittle- Pixies

Debasser! Here Comes Your Man! The song Hey is my favorite. So much mmph to this group. This broke me into the Pixies, memorable in every way.

Klaxons- Golden Skans

Listening to this album time and time again has made me question why their undicovered talents by many are so under viewed. This album is a nice surprise, and this song Of course.

Meddle- Pink Floyd

I love, love, love Meddle. Short but sweet. Beautious sounds, it’s the bridge album to get to Dark Side. It helped craft their Physchodelic days. Pillow of Winds is so beautiful, and as well as Fearless. It is so uplifing and has all the right messages. Ahhh.

The Days of Incubus Fan Hood and Life with Dillon Adair

Do you ever just talk out song lyrics, but do it all the time to a point where you just to fuck with people? I do, it’s too much fun. I would always reference “Nice to Know You” by incubus. I was a gigantic fan of Incubus. Both me and my friend Dillon. That was our band. We’d get home from school and crank all of Incubus’ albums. He’d jam on his Uke and I’d try my best Brandon Boyd impression. We grew our love for Incubus and we made an entire wall of art from Brandon Boyd’s work, and all of the band’s pictures. Mike Einziger, DJ Killmore, Ben Kenney, Jose Pasillas and Good ole Dirk Lance and of course Brandon Boyd. We would emulate him in all levels. That’s our fan, our idol.


He still is, but Incubus just doesn’t feel the same as it once did, it doesn’t have us rage with joy, and poetic justice. Perhaps the new turnings for Incubus is experimenting on a whole other level. I respect it, but I sure do miss the days where the fan hood took our lifestyle, and the over played nature of Morning View was like a serene sunset.

The albums, I always had a trouble ranking them because they all held something special, but Morning View is my go-to and Make Yourself was their break-through with Drive, but now I’m finding my post high school self jamming to the likes of S.C.I.E.N.C.E with all the rage. A Crow Left of The Murder held strong points, and felt so political that it worked, all to their advantage, but seeing them live was an unforgettable event.


Over time we graduated, and ended up finding other interests in bands and dabbled in all sorts of things, like filming and making movies. The Little Wooden Monkey has been our biggest success, the first of three that we made.

Dillon also raps and writes. He wrote his first book and currently does book reviews and has come out with numerous albums. He’s the Dill of all trades. His rap name is Rad Dill, and is a big YouTuber. He’s easily the funniest person I’ve ever met.

992867_640932965935940_1691051509_n 999874_640933015935935_534907462_n  267492_243736032322304_6977450_n10846265_10205283542398407_3611844514368026278_n474143_472953982782350_2134863170_o Beach sesh’s long trips to malls, blue slushy stains on our lips, it was a last call for childish endeavors. The trips to Newbury Comics is what made the trips the fun of it all, spending hours picking and choosing what movies to watch, at a cheap price. He’s in the horror section while I’m looking up some pretentious film or some movie about some stoners or some bull shit like that. That’s how it was.

Same went for music and pop cultured nic-nacs, how cliche. Ha, yeah those were the days, and they’ll happen again.

Just with new memories, and adulthood lives, that will bring a whole other vibe.

Dillon moved to Washington and these trips became no longer, and I’ve been trying to excel in numerous things, like writing, and been studious at college. The future holds some bright things. Never give up, and we will reunite.
