Johnson&Jonson – “Powders and Oils”

I’ve had this for a little while and thought that with the new disc dropping that I would just put that on the blog, but then I found out that they used the same tracks, just some under different names, and called the “new” disc a self-titled project. Rumor has it that they may be working on a new “Powders & Oils” project.

Battle in Seattle

TOTAL Late pass on my part, but I really didn’t know anything about the production, release, or existence of this movie. And a cast like this:

Battle in Seattle stars:
Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Andre Benjamin, Ray Liotta, Michelle Rodriguez, Jennifer Carpenter, Martin Henderson, and Channing Tatum.

Is it good?
