All of the single-track graphics for 2020’s Chin Up release are now available as in collection on the digital art marketplace OpenSea. These artworks were created upon the release of that album, each piece being detailed surreal collages relating to each of the 11 tracks on the album.
A double-entry for the Canadian (1985) and American (1993) versions of the The Tower, both made-for-TV movies involving powerful, master computers in state-of-the-art (for the time) office buildings that go bezerk and start killing people! Both films are of dubious quality but provide a certain entertainment value. This entry is a bit of a contrast and comparison between the two and delves a bit into aesthetics, Canadian film and the little known genre of Canuxploitation.
From the album When Push Comes To Shove.
