When this list of Woody Guthrie’s “New Year’s Rulin’s” popped up on the internet a year ago, it became an instant classic of the season. Which means that the time  has rolled around to remember it, reread it and take it again to heart. There’s a rulin’ on it to suit just about anybody because it never hurts to be reminded “Don’t get lonesome,” “Stay glad,” “Dream good” and “Love everybody.” Also, “Wash teeth if any.”

Happy New Year everybody!

PlayStation Original POWERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Available on Blu-ray & DVD July 14

CULVER CITY, Calif. (May 26, 2015) - POWERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON, a PlayStation Original series, is the first scripted series for PlayStation Network. The series will be available on Blu-ray and DVD July 14 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on the 2004 comic book series of the same name from artist Michael Avon Oeming and writer Brian Michael Bendis (TV’s “Ultimate Spider-Man”), the series stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), Susan Heyward (TV’s “The Following”), Noah Taylor (TV’s “Game of Thrones”), Olesya Rulin, Adam Godley, Max Fowler, with Michelle Forbes (TV’s “Orphan Black”) and British actor and comedian Eddie Izzard (TV’s “United States of Tara”). Set amidst today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, POWERS asks the question, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all?

POWERS follows LAPD “Powers Division” detectives Christian Walker (Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Heyward) as they investigate homicide cases involving people with superhuman abilities. Walker, once operating as a power until he lost his abilities to the super villain Wolfe (Izzard), now operates with just a gun and a badge to take down the formidable foes plaguing Los Angeles. The POWERS cast also includes Logan Browning (TV’s “Hit the Floor”).

POWERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON will be available on both Blu-ray and DVD as a three-disc set with all 10 episodes. Both the Blu-ray and DVD will include the featurette “Policing the All Powerful: Envisioning and Filming Powers”; exclusive to the Blu-ray will be an additional featurette, “From One Visual Medium to Another: The Art and Adaptation of Powers,” as well as deleted scenes and outtakes.

What if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all their “powers” were just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the brave people in charge of protecting humans like us and keeping the peace over commercialized, god-like men and women who glide through the sky imposing their power over the mortals who both worship and fear them. Based on the graphic novel by Michael Avon Oeming and Brian Michael Bendis, the edgy and dramatic POWERS follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate these cases.

DVD/Blu-ray Special Features:
“Policing the All Powerful: Envisioning and Filming Powers”

Blu-ray Exclusive Special Features:
Deleted Scenes
“From One Visual Medium to Another:The Art and Adaptation of Powers”

POWERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON has a running time of approximately 437 minutes and is not rated.

“I didn’t have a secretary. In the end I asked my mother to do it for me. She used to read these letters from young men and would write back and say, ‘My daughter’s far too old for you, what you need is a good run round the block. Get real.’” - Diana Rigg

She wrote back to my young man letter in 2004. 

Because she is a total legend.

Busy Friday night for Riecky Lu at Kafka: she played a set with 愛的養樂多 Yakult Psyche (Alulu Kuo-accordion/vocal, Zulin Wu & Russy ‘Dudu’ Ing from 929, Rulin on guitar.) So this is the band where the musicians play the ‘wrong’ instruments: Riecky on synth instead of the violin she plays with Nineteentael 十九兩; Zulin on bass instead of guitar; Dudu on drums instead of the bass he plays with 929 and Miss Stocking.

Riecky & Dudu’s other band Smokering 煙圈樂團 also played. KM Cool is the guitarist and main vocalist.  Let’s hear one from that lineup, with help from Dadado Huang, Turtle (Miss Stocking), Stanley Hong, and the members of Yakult Psyche:

This evening was a birthday party for Riecky, and she had so many of her musician friends to help her celebrate in song, including Achino Chang, her partner in Nineteentael. 

There was a combination of Robert (929′s drummer), Turtle on bass, Riecky, and 張維尼 (guitarist from 拍謝少年 Sorry Youth) called 南非角蛙 South African Horn Frogs(?):

Wendy Chen has the whole evening and all musician combinations posted to her YT channel, she’s amazing when it comes to immediate show uploads!  =D

Ok, so I have to comment on the Powers Tv series that premiered on Playstation Network last month.

Now, in all honesty, I love almost everything about it, so much of it is honestly much better then the comic series in my opinion. Except for one thing, and that’s what leaves me super depressed. That one thing being Deena Pilgrim.

In the comics Deena is just about my favorite character, she’s amazing, but the show, the show just ruined her, like completely.

I mean first off, lets talk about their actress choice. Now, I have no problem what so ever with them choosing a woc to play her, I love Candice Patton as Iris over on the Flash. But in the comics, though rendered in little detail, you can tell Deena is pretty cute, but Susan Heyward.. I’m sorry, and I mean no offense by this, but she’s a bulldog.

And y’know, I wouldn’t mind at all if she at least captured Deena perfectly, but she doesn’t, like at all, and while part of that is the writers, the other part is she is just a Horrible actor. And then on the writing aspect, in the comics, Deena is honestly more of a main character then Walker, especially in the current 5th volume, where Walker’s only in like 5 pages the past 3 issues.

Also in the comics, Deena never shuts up, and she’s snarky and sarcastic as all hell, which is something I adore about her. Deena in the show though, she barely says a word, and when she does it’s usually something bland, and about something depressing. I mean honestly, that Chaotic Chic girl had more lines then Deena!

I mean what the fuck? Why’d the writers and creators of this show decide to sabotage Deena like that? I can only hope in the next season they write her better.

I just thank god Olyssa Rulin’s Calista is amazing.
