Soul of the Machine: Now Available

Sarah’s first professionally produced album, Soul of the Machine, was released last week! This was indeed one heck of a ride with professional orchestras and chamber groups all over the world recording some of her best compositions under the watchful gaze and mastering of Navona Records.

The album comes with full copies of the scores so you can follow along with the music, and can be purchased on Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and Classics Online. If you’re a fan of streaming music services, you can listen to the album on Spotify and Rdio too.

And, if you’re in the area on September 3rd at 6 PM, stop by Brave New World Comics for the official launch party!

RIP, Robin Williams

Robin Williams, renowned actor, comedian, and so much more, passed away yesterday. I can’t think of a single actor that I have seen in more films throughout my life, from his hilarious and whimsical performance as the Genie in Aladdin to his brilliant and terrifying performance as Sy in One Hour Photo. To suggest that he did not have an impact on my life through this wealth of artistic output would be ridiculous, and for that, I will indeed miss him.

You can see two collections of some of Robin Williams’s best scenes rounded up at The Verge and Quartz. Below is his pivotal “What will your verse be?” scene from Dead Poets Society, and in honor of his life and legacy, I ask, what will your verse be?

LEGO Ghostbusters

It has been a rather long time since I last assembled a LEGO set, but when I saw the latest Ghostbusters-inspired set, I knew I couldn’t resist. This Ecto-1 set is from LEGO Ideas, a place where anyone can submit an idea for review and possible production by LEGO, as long as it gets over 10,000 supporters, which this project did in a very short amount of time.

If you have some ideas for LEGO sets trapped in your mind over the years, submit them to LEGO Ideas, and you might see them on store shelves some day!
