The new Amazon original Tales From the Loop is a sci-fi anthology series that takes place in an 80’s provincial town, where tape decks, CRT displays, and old-fashioned furniture co-exist with robots, flying devices, and gigantic alien-like structures. It tells the story of an underground particle accelerator called The Loop and how its existence affects the town folks above ground. Set against this seemingly ambivalent background the series tells its all-too-human tales, from broken friendships to family affairs to, yes, love stories as well. Its slower narration may seem a little off-putting at first, but little by little you notice…

My collection for 2017s Kong: Skull Island undoubtedly included the most elaborate custom cover I have ever, ever created. From the first draft to the finished mockup it took me literally weeks! So many evenings I didn’t do nothing but sitting in a blue-lighted room all by myself. In hindsight it was absolutely ridiculous how much time I wasted on that thing. Don’t get me wrong, I really love the finished design and I still love to look at it nowadays. But it also feels kinda wrong to have spent so much time on a score that didn’t leave a…
Another year, another Oscar nomination for Thomas Newman – which must feel a bit like a bad joke for this accomplished composer by now. As mentioned in an earlier blog post for The Green Mile, Thomas Newman so far was nominated for an Oscar every 1.5 years on average – only to regularly lose out on the award ceremony.While many of these defeats may well be justified, there have also been some years in which he certainly deserved to take home the Oscar with him. American Beauty in 2000 or Road to Perdition in 2003 to name just a few….
So… where were we? Oh right, I had put all my unfinished projects on hold to tinker with some cowboy covers. And it only took me 287 days. Wonderful, huh?!? I’m sure both of you regular visitors didn’t mind. But now back to business, shall we? After all there has been a new Star Wars movie coming along. And although I doubted that the finale of the sequel trilogy would affect me as emotionally as the originals did at their time, I’m still quite a passionate fan when it comes to George Lucas’ space opera. Most of all I’m keen…
After months and months working entirely on one single custom covers collection I’m finally done with Red Dead Redemption 2. Like every so often I didn’t plan to do an undertaking this big, but once things kick into gear there’s hardly anyone who’s going to stop me (obviously). But if there’s one single game in the last couple years that deserves this kind of dedication, it’s certainly RDR2. Rockstar Games have had hundreds of people developing this epic tale for seven years and you can see, hear and feel the results of these efforts in every single aspect of the…
