Jay-Z - Hater (ft. Kanye West)

FINALLY a Jay-Z leak that doesn't sound like complete ass!

Let's see here.
Three Blueprint 3 songs leaked, each Timbaland-produced tracks, and they suck.
One Kanye-produced track leaks and it's wicked.

Verdict: Stop working with Tim, Jigga.



Wonderful things can come from boredom. I'm a bit too proud of this.


Funeral Parade of Roses (1969)

I just watched this movie and it aaalmost single-handedly kicks the collective french new wave cinema in its sexy, cigarette-smoking balls.

Deals pretty heavily with transsexuality, which is hard to contest with a couple of attractive and charming French people acting quirky while Jean-Luc Godard twirls behind the camera.

The playfulness and utilization of all dimensions in this are on the level of The Holy Mountain, and just such fucked-upedness by the end, tragedy and comedy entwined, that it feels like a 60s Oldboy.

Free Energy - Free Energy

This sounds like Summer's dying breath.
It had a good run, time for a new season. I'm sick of seeing shorts. Fuck off, shorts. You too, sandals.


Grey Suit

This guy must've looked in the mirror before going out that morning and just been like "damn, you look good," and kissed the mirror.

Grey tie.



The Playful Man by Nakayama Masaaki

Part of his terrifying series Fuan no tane.

You can download the English translated volume 1 HERE and volume 2 HERE.

Jay-Z - Run This Town (ft. Rihanna & Kanye)

Rihanna's part is still a bit annoying to me, but this video has definitely helped make me like the song.

"What you think I rap for, to push a fuckin' RAV4?"


Robogeisha (2009)

Sometimes geisha are not demure. Sometimes they are robots.

From the makers of such groundbreaking oddities as Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police...

La Maison en Petit Cubes (2008)

A b-e-a-utiful French short film by an up-and-coming Japanese director.
It's a snack for the senses and deservedly won an Oscar.
Here it is:

Kazuo Umezu's amazing homes

Kazuo Umezu is an adorable Japanese horror manga writer/artist/pioneer.

He draws scary things like this:

And lives in a few not-so-scary homes:

I think I'm in love.

p.s. check out his books (on AMAZON or sumfin'. They're wonderful).


Do you know the number to heaven?

Poor kid.
Another wonderful Jason Eisener video.
Part of a contest that required a boy, a monster, and the word "fantastic" at the end:


Girls - Lust For Life

Finally found my summer song, just in time.
Perfectly wistful.


Top 60 Ghetto Girl Names

I think I went to high school with a few of these.


Boo-urns remix...

I'm getting over, possibly, the swine flu? 
So I'm bedridden watching too much Simpsons and listening to too much stupid music, so obviously the two had to be combined. 

So here's the most productive thing I've done in days:



Ryan Hemsworth & J.ViLL - Biggie, Rihanna and I (Waiting On)

This is big news for me. 
The first remix ever of one of my songs by an amazing NY rapper.

I'm not going to say much except:
1. It's wicked and I can't stop listening.
2. You should do the same, and share it with anyone and everyone!

RiP: A Remix Manifesto

I went to a screening of this movie a while ago with a little conference of completely different but related people talking on the subject of copyright and music, discussing the undefinable rights and wrongs, and it went hand-in-hand with this movie perfectly. 

If you want to learn a lot about copyright, the history of music, or just want to watch a really good documentary on Girl Talk's music, here it is in its entirety.


The Lovely Bones (trailer)

So many visuals in this that I didn't make from the book, some really.. fantastical ones. But still exciting.



Radiohead - Harry Patch (In Memory Of)

“Recently the last remaining UK veteran of the 1st world war Harry Patch died at the age of 111.

I had heard a very emotional interview with him a few years ago on the Today program on Radio4.

The way he talked about war had a profound effect on me.

It became the inspiration for a song that we happened to record a few weeks before his death.

It was done live in an abbey. The strings were arranged by Jonny.

I very much hope the song does justice to his memory as the last survivor.


It would be very easy for our generation to forget the true horror of war, without the likes of Harry to remind us.

I hope we do not forget.”

-Thom Yorke

The song can be heard HERE, and downloaded HERE for 1 pound (going to charity).


Webzine 29

Love Exposure (trailer)

This 4-hour epic is getting rave reviews. It was only just released in Japan and there's no US distribution attached yet... I need to get my hands on it somehow. 

Directed by the ridiculous, amazing Sion Sono (of Suicide Club and Strange Circus [one of the sickest movies I've seen] fame)


Mary Mary - God In Me

Of all the auto-tune songs, I never thought I'd hear one about God. 
I mean, the way it's been there's only been two subjects that the effect is used for: drinking and heartbreak. 
This is inventive, right? 
Correct Answer: No.
They single-handedly made me not want to hear auto-tune again.
God hates you, Mary Mary. And so do I.


Sebastien Tellier

What a performer. He said it took him a year to make his CD because he was just trying to find the "sexual notes" on his piano. 
Look out for the best back-up singers ever there, and his use of helium in the second verse. 

And this is a more personal, tighter version of the same song:

The Very Best - Chalo

Love these guys' music. Beautiful singing.
He's performing outside of his second-hand furniture store he owns in, I think, Britain.
I wish the music industry was successful so this guy didn't have to juggle jobs just to get by as a genius artist.
