As I nestled into my leather seat at the new dine-in theater in Philadelphia, I began accepting my fate: “Hey, so it cost you $50 to see a movie by yourself,” I bargained in my head as a sipped my soda and consumed 30 minutes of ads. “At least you can name your article, ‘I Paid $50 to See a Movie in a Pandemic so You Don’t Have To.'”
But within minutes of the introduction to “Cruella,” my regrets melted like butter on movie theater popcorn (yes, I’m a lactose-intolerant vegan — movie theater popcorn and Werther’s caramels are my vices, so sue me).
“Cruella” was worth every single penny. The storyline was as intricately woven as the fashion throughout the film, the acting was absolutely incredible, the cinematography was great, and don’t even get me STARTED on that soundtrack.
Yet, the true cherry on top wasn’t necessarily a product of the film itself.
DRUM ROLL, PLEASE! After a few unexpected delays, we’re thrilled to announce the NEW, official release date for “The Burgundy Zine #18: Imagination Recaptured” is July 28, 2021. As our first-ever bi-annual issue, The Burgundy Zine #18 will highlight an array of content we published throughout the first half of 2021.
The deadline to submit content for the upcoming issue of our digital magazine is July 14, 2021. With a little less than two months until the release date, let’s recap the submission guidelines for this issue.
Levi “Doctor Octoroc” has recently kicked off the Kickstarter campaign for “Soft Bits In,” his chiptune take on The Flaming Lips’ album, “The Soft Bulletin.”
Backers can enjoy a variety of rewards for pledging their support to the campaign, including: a deluxe digital download of the album, a special edition vinyl press, a two-hour “Chiptunes 101” master class with Doctor Octoroc, and a chiptune track produced just for you by Doctor Octoroc himself.
“‘The Soft Bulletin’ was one of the first albums I ever saw in a store and was like, ‘I want this album,'” Doctor Octoroc said during our interview about “Soft Bits” In last year. “It’s an album that I love, an album that I thought would go really well in the format, so I decided to go for that.”
It cost me $50 for one adult movie ticket, a small popcorn, and a diet soda to see Cruella on a whim while waiting for the train yesterday. And honestly, the film was so incredible, I’d pay $50 again just to see it one more time. But more about that’s to come next week.
In the meantime, let’s recap what’s been hot here at The Burgundy Zine and gloss over some exciting news elsewhere that you may not have heard about yet.
