“If the music keeps me in the intensity of the game without distracting me — then it’s a winner. It’s a double winner if the track serves as a much needed refresher to a game’s mediocre soundtrack. Games with little or no music? I just have fun overdubbing with these favorites listed below. It’s a great way to change up the experience and make it your own.” – Naomi

Technology is all around us. It helps us communicate with friends, make ourselves a fancy latte with just the press of a button, and enjoy our favorite music and movies while on the go. But what if technology had a mind of its own or was used in a way to cause more harm than good?
Today’s theatrical release of Transcendence, featuring the man of many talents Johnny Depp, got us thinking about that very question. While noodling over the answer, our minds wandered a bit to think of some other movies that show what happens when technology goes bad – or takes over completely. Here’s what we came up with:
- Terminator Salvation
- The Matrix
- Minority Report
- Transformers: Dark of the Moon
- Star Trek: First Contact
- I Robot
- Tron: Legacy
- Event Horizon
- Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

Labor Day: From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno) comes this second chance love story. Frank Chambers (Josh Broslin) takes the reclusive mother Adele (Kate Winslet) ‘hostage’ in her home and becomes entangled in her life, as well as that of her son.
An emotional roller-coaster and romantic melodrama that will have you rooting for unlikely lovers, as you get increasingly involved in their lives.
Devil’s Due: If you’re in the mood for a horror flick, then this Rosemary’s Baby homage may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Zach and Samantha McCall come home from their honeymoon and find themselves faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Zach begins to notice that his wife’s odd behavior is something more than nerves. There’s something dark and sinister going on in her mind and body.
Bear Hands, the indie-rock quartet from Brooklyn, made a quick detour on its way to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival to make an appearance at San Francisco’s LIVE 105 radio station on Thursday to perform a special Music Unlimited Live Lounge session.
The up-and-coming group performed three songs – “Giants,” “Sleeping on the Floor” and “Vile Iowa”– from its second full-length album, Distraction. The 11-track album, which is now available on Music Unlimited, took four years to make and was produced by the band’s guitarist Ted Feldman and mixed by James Brown (Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails).
And don’t worry if you’re not going to make it out to the desert this weekend. Bear Hands is also on the bill for the Lollapalooza and Outside Lands music festivals this summer.
