    DW3 “Vintage Truth”
    With the release of their highly-anticipated Woodward Avenue Records debut, Southern California’s premiere R&B, funk and contemporary urban jazz powerhouse DW3 lets the world in on a cool “Vintage Truth.” Driven by the ever-evolving musical vision of core members - brothers Eric and Billy Mondragon and Damon Reel - their deepening artistry continues to transcend a well-earned reputation as a high energy, fun and freewheeling party band. While they continue to anchor Thursday nights and the 94.7 The Wave Sunday Brunch at Spaghettini in Seal Beach and electrify festival and cruise-goers as they have for more than a decade, the versatile ensemble is rapidly emerging as a multi-faceted recording outfit in their own right.

    Avengers: Age of Ultron and the thinning patience of comic book movie fans.

    in Entertainment

    Now that you've all seen Avengers or heard so much about that you're sick of hearing about it, you're gonna hear about it from Kai and I. 


    Marvel's second foray into ensemble superhero went off without much of a hitch leaving a lot of people looking at DC/Warner as if to say "can you do any better?" 

    Warner Bros. seeming to feel the invisible eyes on them chose this weekend to release promo pictures for their ensemble comic book movie "Suicide Squad" which raised more questions than answered prayers. 

    while people have definitely  responded favorably to the set photos and costume reveals, as par for the course, almost and equal amount of people have responded with either cautious optimism or flat out disappointment. 


    this comes on the heels of a scathing Hollywood Reporter article criticising Warner Bros' approach to their cinematic universe and the creative team behind it. 


     


    we'll discuss all this and try not to slur our words at the same time
