The Stone Foxes' new video is a trip

2010-06-03T11:45:52.440-07:00

watch for yourself

And then watch again, with your 3D glasses!

so cool.



Fang Island is awesome

2010-05-25T12:08:48.622-07:00

And this is just part of the reasons why.

Check out this video of a guy named Miles giving a helpful how-to instructional video on using the program/iPhone app TYPOGRAFFIT....it looks neat

MGMT's new video for 'Flash Delirium' is.....

2010-03-31T14:11:58.604-07:00

fittingly WEIRD. In fact, I'd say they're defining a new kind of 'weird'.

This whole thing looks like it would make for a pretty bizarre and quite entertaining movie....

(object) (embed)

Their new album 'Congratulations' is set to come out next month, but it's streaming on their site now....and causing quite a stir on the Internet, since it's so....strange.



My love for Dave Grohl will never cease....

2010-03-23T17:49:22.469-07:00

This video, while short, makes me love him even more. (in a fanboy sense, of course)

(object) (embed)



Ok Go never quits

2010-03-02T12:06:58.923-08:00

It's awesome to see visionaries within today's clouded pop music world.

(object) (embed)

Ok go are simply stunning with their music videos....as a band, as well, they are fun and creative, but their videos are just on another level of consciousness. This is just art. Wow.



Kurt Cobain movie coming along....

2010-02-25T13:12:12.806-08:00

at some point. As a self-professed Nirvana fanboy, having read tons and tons of books on Kurt/grunge/seattle/etc., this saddens me. I read the book the movie will be loosely founded on, Heavier than Heaven, and it is FAR too pro-Courtney Love for my liking. Since she also had to agree to license everything for this movie, that means it will most likely paint a somewhat favorable picture of her, rather than portray her as the succubus she was in regards to Kurt and his well-being. That's too bad.

He obviously would never have agreed to something like this had he still been alive, but that's what you get for killing yourself, I guess.




Bushwalla - not a 1990s cover band

2010-02-09T14:38:48.544-08:00

I was recently at the Mint in LA watching a performance by the Stone Foxes, one of my favorite bands out of the Bay Area. While there, I saw a flyer for the show the next day....featuring something called 'BushWalla'. As a child of the 1990s, I of course assumed this was the name of a 1990s rock cover band...but apparently it isn't. In fact, it's a really cool indie hip hop/soul/rock artist. Check out this video:

(object) (embed)

He's apparently even friends with Jason Mraz, who joined him onstage during the Mint show...

(object) (embed)


Pretty cool stuff. With a name like 'Bushwalla', I wasn't expecting it to be anything OTHER than a tribute act.



Rx Bandits continue to be amazing...

2010-01-28T12:22:33.062-08:00

This is their new music video for 'Hope is a Butterfly, No Net its Captor ( Virus of Silence)' off of their mind-blowing new album Mandala.

(object) See full report...

So. Awesome.

they're playing Coachella this year (on Saturday) if you're so inclined. :)



2010 Coachella Lineup unveiled....

2010-01-19T15:00:09.129-08:00

and the Internet has somehow managed to stay afloat, despite the typical freakout that goes on when Goldenvoice's annual desert-rock festival gets its lineup posted all across the Web.

This year features headliners jay-Z (with a rumored collaboration with Alicia Keys and Kanye West), Muse, and Gorillaz. Of course this list isn't final, there will be other additions as the weeks go on....but I wonder if any of those will be involving the headliners, or if it's basically set. We shall see.

Not a bad lineup, though, there's something for everyone, even the Specials and SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE. Who saw that coming?

I can't wait for mid-April.



Another reason to hate Owl City

2010-01-05T13:57:17.832-08:00

This is silly. Owl City, who already amassed a Number 1 hit on iTunes by copying the style of the Postal Service with that "Fireflies" song, is now apparently accused of stealing album art as well. Adam Young, the 'mastermind' behind Owl City, released the hit album Ocean Eyes in 2009, with this image on the 2nd page of the booklet:

(image)

Looks neat. Too bad it is just a LITTLE BIT similar to this photo taken by some guy named Ben Eubank:

(image)

So....this Owl City dude likes ripping off guys named Ben (as in Ben Gibbard from the Postal Service/Death Cab for Cutie)? I guess? or else...what? There's no escaping the fact that this is exactly the same image, just with some Photoshop tweaking. Shameful.

And yet Owl City continues to rise and rise and rise in popularity.....sigh.

this was first brought to my attention via Stereogum, a marvelous site.





I hate Hollywood sometimes

2009-12-21T09:44:32.634-08:00

(image)
A couple years back I saw a delightful British comedy called Death at a Funeral. It was an offbeat tale of a bunch of odd people and the catastrophes that happened at their father's funeral...it was distinctly British, with the same type of humor I love (and some people in the US just don't appreciate). The film seemed to slip under almost everyone's radar here in the US, which was sad.

Yesterday, at the movie theater waiting for Up in the Air to start, I saw a trailer that made me uncomfortable. It opened with Chris Rock at a funeral for his father, but it wasn't his dad in the coffin! This seemed familiar because this was, in fact, A REMAKE OF DEATH AT A FUNERAL. Starring Rock, Martin Lawrence (ugh), Danny Glover, Tracy Morgan and Jason Marsden. Oh, and the little person who was in the original film is the same actor this time around, the guy who was also in Nip/Tuck. And what the HELL is Luke Wilson doing in this mess??

(image)
Words couldn't express my confusion as the trailer continued. Why did someone think it necessary to re-make Death at a Funeral? There's NO reason to do that, let alone junk it up with Martin Lawrence and his nonsense. This just made me sad. While this version will probably do well because of the names attached to it, I wish people could just have seen the original, vastly superior British version....or just LEARN TO APPRECIATE BRITISH HUMOR. Gah.

I feel sick now. =/



I'd hate to live next to this house

2009-12-17T17:50:59.978-08:00

For the sheer reason of being upstaged every year when it comes to Christmas light decoration.

(object) (embed)

That's just unfair. And this is a real thing, one of my friends says he's been to the house.

I don't even know how you'd set something like this up...but it looks pretty rad, however it was done.

I wish science/technology didn't hate me. =/

haha



SNL still has hope sometimes....

2009-12-10T11:40:27.084-08:00

As evidenced by this skit from last week's episode, which parodies the trailer for the Gathering of the Juggalos event that was so hilarious a couple of months ago....

(object) (embed)

See? they CAN be funny once in a while! I had almost completely lost hope.....



Now that Thanksgiving is over...

2009-12-02T11:01:31.674-08:00

...we can legally play Christmas music.

Anyway, the Men's chorale sang this at my school's Christmas concert a couple years ago. It wasn't on the program, which was the best part haha. The director sat down after they finished their last song and were supposed to leave, but then one of the students ran down and started off this piece. We're singing it again this year, only it will be on the program this time.
(object) (embed)

We got the song from a group called "Straight No Chaser" who is from Indiana University, I believe. They were the first to do it. You'll see that they do it a bit differently, including an a capella rendition (with the lyrics changed to suit Christmas) of Africa by Toto.
(object) (embed)

...annnnnnd just because Africa is such a great 80s song, and because I know you're not sick of listening to choir music, here is a mixed choir rendition of it. They create this rainstorm effect by snapping their fingers and hitting their legs and finally the thunder by jumping on their risers. It's a bit cheesy, but if you can get over the cheese factor it's actually pretty cool. I'm not convinced that the thunder sound is completely from the risers, though...

OK Go makes the best videos

2009-11-19T17:44:36.568-08:00

even if their songs are sometimes a bit iffy, the band does videos RIGHT. observe:

(object) (embed)

Edit: Gah, you can't embed the video. So go to YouTube itself and watch. It's rad.

Awesome, right? Well HOW THE HELL DID THEY DO THAT?

this is how. They were nice enough to do a behind the scenes video. And you CAN embed it. bam.

(object) (embed)

I wish I was that creative. le sigh.



And people say Twilight isn't good literature...

2009-11-17T22:13:01.289-08:00

sELF rocks, this is pretty accurate too

2009-11-17T13:46:14.431-08:00

This is pretty cool...sELF was a very underrated band from the mid 1990's. Basically just Matt Mahaffee, the band released some pretty rad albums....this is from Ornament & Crime, an album that wasn't actually released. Thanks to the Internet, of course, this is hosted somewhere. It's the last track on that album....and it's a pretty accurate depiction of LA radio...ahha

Autotune Explained....with Weird Al!

2009-11-12T11:35:24.053-08:00

The folks at Know Your Meme put together this information and funny video highlighting the exploitation of Auto-Tune in popular music today...check it out! There's even a little snippet of Eenie Meenie's own Wallpaper. and their remix of Jay-Z's "Death to Autotune" song....cool!

(object) (embed)



This video is great.

2009-11-03T22:21:39.640-08:00

No, really. It's fabulous. The plot is just fantastic.

The Internet is Amazing

Umm.....where to begin? What/who/why is this? I have no clue. This guy's look reminds me of...

(image)

Chris Tucker from the 5th Element.

Not that that helps explain what the hell is going on in this video/song....but....it's entertaining, to say the least.



Them Crooked Vultures finally have a real song out

2009-10-27T10:50:04.756-07:00

and here it is:

(object) (embed)

If anyone still cares, that is. The hype seems to have died down, as they just teased us for months until now, when there's finally a real full song out....and it's pretty cool.

I'll admit I'm not as super excited as I was two months ago, but I'm still looking forward to hearing the album and seeing them live.



jazz... and beatboxing?

2009-10-22T10:25:38.725-07:00

I've never heard of Iiro Rantala or his new trio, but it's certainly an interesting combination: Piano, Guitar... and Beatboxing. They're completely different personalities, and it's great. It's really a fun song, but it feels a bit more like a jam session to me. Anyway, check it out:


Iiro Rantala New Trio - Shit Catapult

You're welcome....

Where the Wild Things Are

2009-10-16T13:53:44.901-07:00

Maybe it’s just me, but I have been waiting for this movie to come out for months. I had movietickets.com open daily to check when the midnight tickets went on sale. I searched the internet for hours to find the perfect onesie pajama (unfortunately they were backordered by the time I found the one I wanted so I didn’t have it last night http://www.theirongategallery.com/Wild-Things-Wolf-Pajamas_p_592.html ). I made a special trip to Barnes and Noble to read the book so I had a fresh memory of what happened. Basically, I prepared myself to be disappointed.

I went to the theater last night really excited and ready for a seriously amazing movie, but in the back of my mind preparing myself for disappointment. The crowd certainly did not disappoint, dozens of people dressing up as Max and there was even a guy dressed up in a huge wild thing outfit (the head alone was bigger than me). When we all got in the theater and the clock struck 12 a guy stood up and yelled “Let the wild rumpus start!” to which the whole audience erupted in cheers.

Anyway, getting to the movie. It was amazing. One of the most heartfelt and touching movies I’ve ever seen. I never cry at the movies, but this one had me really close and brought several of my friends and my twin brother to tears. From the opening scene to the last scene you can’t help but love Max and everything he does. Even when he is being mean to his mom, like when he stands up on the counter and yells, “Woman! Feed me!” you just laugh. I think the only thing I didn’t like about this movie was his magical ability to find his way home at the end, but I can live with that. Seriously, everyone needs to see this movie. I promise you you will love it. If you don’t, there’s something wrong with you.
