    Syntax Vernac's seasonal releases continue as he currently tours the states promoting "Spring Broken", the second four-track EP in a series of four. This time around, music production is handled by Negundo, from Germany.

    Tomorrow DC Comics plans on releasing a plethora of new installments in their recent "New 52" line, but it's the reissue of "Batman: No Man's Land (vol.1)" that has collectors, like myself, excited. Notorious for being hard to find and incredibly overpriced ($41 used?), "No Man's Land" was an incredible series of crossovers that spanned every Bat-related book for over a year. It definitely left ... more.

    It’s hard to compare “The Last Circus” to other films, though it’s not an impossible task to find some similarities or homages to other cinematic works littered across the Alex De La Iglesia directed Spanish-language picture. The story begins in 1937 where a happy clown is forced to join a bloody battle during a children’s performance while still in make-up, handed only a machete, and... more.

    Random (A.K.A. Mega Ran) is moving up the hip hop food chain fast, but the Philadelphia-born emcee is NOT an overnight success by any means.

Oddly enough, it wasn't until he left the notorious hooded character behind that his following began to flourish; what once was a respectable-sized group of dedicated supporters grew to a massive community of... more.
