    Max Freedman listens to so much music that doctors have found mp3s in his blood. He’s completely taken advantage of living directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan, having seen a stupid amount of live shows there. Oddly enough, Funeral isn’t his favorite Arcade Fire album. He wants everyone to know that, because he really wants people to think he's different.

Michael Nazarewycz View all posts

    Michael will watch anything considered a motion picture, from a nickelodeon silent to a digital epic, and he is a sucker for everything from the 1980s. While he thinks it's great to have thousands of movies available to him around the clock, he misses the joy of random discovery that broadcast television used to bring in the pre-home video era.
