I provide my list of favourite We Want to Believe episodes about the various hauntings going on around the interior of British Columbia!
Twenty episodes and about nine different locations later, The Paranormal Network’s (formerly JoBlo Horror Network) We Want to Believe is showing it has staying power. Even after a hiatus due to the pandemic, this short form version of many paranormal reality television shows has resumed. Since mid 2022, the team have been visiting places off the beaten track in the heartland of British Columbia. After approximately nine cases, this group continues to show how dedicated they truly are!
This homegrown program follows the Canadian Paranormal Society in Kamloops. What they’ve done is more than just providing peace of mind for some. There are supernatural forces at work up in them thar hills. In some instances, it’s to also solve a mystery of why they caught an EVP in the middle of nowhere! I need to rewatch those episodes and the follow-up they’ve done all in one night. I’ve put together the playlist to watch on All Hallow’s Eve to truly appreciate how the veil is thinner in the woods. The Irish believe that once when you step into the forest, you’re in faerie territory!
Apparently, what I wrote (that the producers read) made them decide to figure out where that voice came from.
The new ‘WARPs DIG’ project being launched this time will focus on the members of WARPs ROOTS, a training ground for the next generation of WARPs talent aiming for global success.
WARPs expanding! They may well be called WARP-Syndicate at this rate, but for fans of their music wondering how the lineup will change, everything will be revealed on YouTube. WARPs DIG is a new show available on YouTube so people can follow their journey from regular life to stage.
From the Press Release:
WARP-Syndicate (commonly known as WARPs) stands for Wind Assemble Radical People-Syndicate, meaning a collective that harnesses the wind of innovation. By operating groups with fixed lineups and various projects across multiple artistic disciplines and regardless of age, gender and nationality, it is a collective that aims to create a new landscape where talent can shine beyond existing categories and frameworks. The Japanese-Chinese mixed boys’ group WARPs UP has been active as the first act under the WARPs umbrella.
Available to watch on Apple’s YouTube channel is Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound. This mini-documentary released today in honour of Star Wars Day
Available to watch on Apple’s YouTube channel is Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound. This mini-documentary released today in honour of Star Wars Day goes behind the scenes in what goes on in at this studio. We see more than how some of those magical sounds are made. We get insights into an aspect of the movie-making process that makes the filimed footage come alive.
Additionally, we see the technology used to fine tune the raw vibrations to what audiences hear in that film! Some of it may seem surprisingly low tech, but for the high, it’s no surprise Apples are used. Logic Pro is the software of choice at this studio. And from what I can notice, the servers look like they’re Apple G5s!
This video is a terrific watch to see how sound and image all gets put together. It may even perhaps inspire those who want to work in the movie-making industry to take up a position as a foley artist. Although some may argue Skywalker Sound desire to be fully digital will kill this position (please read my review of Actors of Sound here), I think this profession will be always be around in one form or another. Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound nicely tells us why we need people who take ‘psycho acoustics’ seriously. They are the folks who’ll be out there in the natural and synthetic environment to record the next big thing. Who knows, maybe that sonic boom will be put in the next movie we’re about to see on the big screen.
At long last is A Filthy Lot’s “A Meeting withHammerlain,” a fully realised reenactment off one of the key moments from their D&D gaming channel. The group has to meet one of the magistrates, and what’s seen is a demonstration of what this studio can produce independent of the studio system in Vancouver, BC.
The delay is due to the team wanting to fine tune the edit and effects. They want the transition from one world to another seamless. The costumes are terrific and the encounter are as engaging as an episode of Stargate Atlantis. The behind-the-scenes team may have once worked at Bridge Studios before joining this company!
AFL’s flagship product is Ready to Roll, a web series where their in-house group of gamers are dealing with threats to the world of Altera. People can naviate the world through portals, but the politics and who can use them are in question. And not everyone knows they can transport folk to alternate dimensions.
This coming-of-age love song is a perfect way to kick off March break (in certain parts of the world)
Following the theme music, ‘Paint’ for the current season of hit anime series One Piece, Japanese four-piece rock band I Don’t Like Mondays. released a brand-new single ‘Sora no Aosa ni Miserarete’ on YouTube for fans to enjoy. This coming-of-age love song is a perfect way to kick off March break (in certain parts of the world), and it’s centered on the kinetic rock sound it inherits from their track used in the cartoon.
It poetically spotlights an innocent young man’s pure heart among the arrival of spring and the budding seeds of love. Another highlight is a chanted choral section in the middle that symbolizes the band’s hope that the day will come soon when the live music industry recovers to full health, and we can all sing together once more.
