Split Reel Looking back at “The Terminator”

Released in 1984, the unheralded The Terminator not only propelled director James Cameron and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to stardom, but would eventually become recognized as a landmark work that would influence cinema for decades to come. Sitting at the center of a hub of themes ranging from corrupt A.I.s to dystopian futures, The Terminator is the focus of a new book from Scott Von Doviak: If You Like The Terminator, Here Are Over 200 Movies, TV Shows, and Other Oddities That You Will Love. Scott is a cultural critic whose writing has been featured in the A/V Club, Nerve, and numerous other publications.

Artist Interviews Mission of Burma

Though pioneers of post-punk, Mission of Burma are slow to admit their influential place in indie rock history. CHIRP DJ Blake Burkhart sat down with the band before their 2012 show at Lincoln Hall to discuss their journeys over the past three decades, staying angsty in chillwave times, and the freakiest surprise of their career. Mission of Burma released Unsound in 2012 on Fire Records.
