Unwinnable Presents: Eye of the Beerholder Episode 1 - Undungeonable?

June 24th, 2015

After much hype and anticipation, Eye of the Beerholder is here!

For our first show, Stu Horvath and Shawn Dillon try to decide on a name for our newest podcast. Unwinnable A/V producer, Ken Lucas, helps the gents get the ball rolling as they talk about their origins in D & D, the name of the show, tonight’s drink menu, the beginning of Dungeons and Dragons and TSR. They dip into the Undead just for a moment and introduce their new Emcee, DOOM! before they get into a lengthly discussion about the Beholder. Shawn Dillon hates on Giant Spiders.

Soundtracks for Imaginary Movies: Carpentered

May 19th, 2015

Unwinnable's resident DJ, Kursse, recently extended his live DJ set from Geek Flea 9. Here is what he had to say:

"I had the chance to DJ live at Geek Flea 9. I want to say it was glorious and people who took note of what I was doing enjoyed it, but my set was plagued with technical errors like a late start, miss cues and what not. I decided after Geek Flea that I would reinvent the mix as a directors cut and as it took shape I realized that it had a theme after all: Simplicity.

Lately I’ve been preoccupied with the French electronic scene and artists like Kavinsky, ROB, Vitalic and, of course, Daft Punk. I am also forever obsessed with John Carpenter and find many of his songs and similarly influenced artists on my mixes. For the most part, they all share the ‘less is more’ approach. It’s something Carpenter is known for and has influenced electronic artists all over the globe. I thought it would be apropos to file this mix under the Soundtracks for Imaginary Movies heading as this mix can be the soundtrack to a movie like Drive or a game like Hotline Miami. I’ve also included some favorites from friends and local artists that fit the bill like Morlox, Church Fire and, shamelessly, Kursse. 

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I did making it. Perhaps it will transport you to a time when neon ruled and synths were the back track to life.

“Deus Culpa” -  Ghost B.C.

“Blood Dragon Theme” - Power Glove

“NARC” - Megadrive

“Protovision” - Kavinsky

“3 AM” - PlatEAU

“Wolfman’s Lament” - Morlox

“Dieu” - The Haxan Cloak

“1983 - Main Theme” - Sinoia Caves

“The Lament of Irena Dubrovna” - Sleepwalk Cinema

“Demonizer” - Kursse

“Breast Bones” - Church Fire

“Burchard Von Worms” - Shooting Guns

“End of Line” - Daft Punk

“Shoulder of Orion” - Lazerhawk

“Hydrogen” - M|O|O|N

“Shari Vari ( The Hacker & Vitalic Rmx)” - A Number of Names

“Poney Pt. 1” - Vitalic

“Quasar” - Otto Von Schirach

“Paragun” - Skinny Puppy

“Backalley Creepers 2” - Irving Force

“Night Driving Avenger” - Perturbator
