Joseph Self’s…

Selfish Thoughts

Joseph Self questions the premise in Rock ’n’ Roll that you don’t need to understand what they’re saying to know what they’re talking about…

Rock ’n’ Roll

Music is an increasingly intrinsic part of our lives, from the pulse-pounding beat of life-changing events, to the soothing background melody of daily routines. For Romeo and Kelsie, it’s the thread that binds their relationship, starting slowly romantic, but soon rising to a dramatic crescendo as outside forces threaten to tear them apart: when Kelsie is kidnapped, Romeo is determined to get her back, braving an army of thugs, cultists, and even a supernatural conjuration to do it!

With minimal English dialogue, promotional copy for this visual adventure claims “when it comes to rock ’n’ roll, you don’t have to understand what they're saying to know what they're talking about.”

That’s probably true for Gen X’rs and Twentysomething’s, but Baby Boomers may feel like they’re watching a movie with the mute button on —the first time through you’re really not sure what’s happening.
