another good video

the song is nice and for people who love crazily driven cars. has a "suvs are dumb" message somewhere in there, which i was happily agreeing with until the last scene as i looked closely at the car on the far right... anyway the band is phoenix foundation and its directed by reuben sutherland

the new entertainment weekly (my roommate subscribes) reveals that sony never shelved new album. she did, more or less. there's also no feud between the album's father, producer jon brion (kayne west, lots of white people), and step-father, producer mike elizando (dr. dre, other rappers). in fact, the three performed together last week at tenacious d's katrina relief concert and several times recently at largo in la.

diy ipod nano case with urban camo option

** UPDATE--our new project! diy cut-and-fold paper iphone **

the new ipod nano is amazing but what a pity that cases are still unavailable.
amid reports of scratch-sensitive screens we propose a solution: take matters into your own hands and make your own nano case.

how it works:
1. download the nano template and print it out.
2. following instructions, cut on solid lines and fold on dotted ones.

and even better is to use the cutout as a guide to trace onto any other material. fold and tape. voila! (here's a secret: a packet of eclipse gum is nearly the perfect size--one less piece of packaging clogging up a landfill, and no one will know what you've really got in your pocket.)

you can probably do better, so feel free to tweak template (.ai illustrator vector format)-mix, modify, improve. send the files and pics (sneakmove at gmail) of your achievements and we'll put 'em online.

need an ipod? get one here and help support sneakmove... on

if this has been helpful to you and you've got some spare change laying around, feel free to donate a buck via paypal.

phan art

check out pharrell's "can i have it like that?" featuring gwen stefani. it's from his upcoming solo album, from what i understand. hawt beat. not $2 million worth of hawtness, but hawt nonetheless. p definitely comes offbeat in an unintentional way at least once, but whatever -- i can't hate. i will play the ass off of this one. caveat: literally no reason for gwen to be on this. any woman in the world would have sufficed. but, again, whatever.

no video of the week this week

just too busy with the other stuff. but if there was to be one, it'd be . as usual with these guys, there's a delicate tapestry of instrumentation with soft vocal melodies weaved in as highlights. the video uses cool stick figure animation with a medieval theme to it. and to mix d&d with jypu and the dudley corporation (see last two posts), at the same jypu/d.c. show mentioned below, rob from pinback got on stage and rocked the last song with the d.c. guys using paul from jypu's guitar. it was crazy, i swear. enjoy.

sm faves jim yoshii pile-up at cmj tonight

cmj week in nyc has begun, and jypu with label mates the wrens and dudley corporation (who kicked serious ass at their sf gig a couple weekends ago). i doubt you can get tix this late, but send a note because a couple of us will be in town for the events.

celebrity poker? no, celebrity dungeons & dragons

last night i had a surprise conversation with an old friend that i used to play dungeons and dragons with when we were 13. turns out, he's still a huge d&d geek, and in our long overdue chat i felt the old dice-slinging excitement.
today, i read a post discussing the concept of . hot damn that would be amazing. imagine any combination of grown, serious actors and actresses, describing how their wizard-elf should be permitted to use psionics because its in the dm2 handbook.

kanye west, at last week's apple event

has an article about the ipod nano's development (intesting piece). but the best part is right at the top when it talks about kanye's performance at the announcement party. so embarrassing!'s 11 in the morning, and his audience is largely white and overwhelmingly nerdy. West rips through All Falls Down and Gold Digger, but he barely gets a head bob out of those people. When he raps, "If you aint no punk, holla 'We want prenup!,'" not a single, solitary soul hollas back.

disturbing: devo's "whip it," by minnesota 5th graders

its kinda adorable. its kinda upsetting. as these kids recreate the video for "whip it" without really understanding the subtext. i guess the school didn't either, sponsoring and hosting it on their website. but hey nice work guys!

godzilla: final wars

in japan they still make godzilla movies, but the recent poor showings in the us have all stateside distributors staying away the way i stay away from david schwimmer dramas. maybe someday you'll be able to see the 50th anniversary "finale" of the godzilla franchise, but for now, will have to suffice. true fans will love it; casual fans will see a cheap power rangers asthetic.

best video of the week

in a week full of good videos, by electric six has had me continuously singing and laughing my head off. they're not for everyone, but if you want to get fired up for the weekend then put on your headphones, turn it up and submit yourself to their ridiculous disco/metal vibe.

aeon flux movie trailer

from mtv's "liquid television" short-lived animated series in the early 90's to the silver screen. although conceptually a better story than tomb raider, charlize theron surprisingly seems less graceful in this than angelina jolie in hers (plus i don't like that black hair on her). comparing the two will be undeniable. .

the perfect $500 gift for your favorite ipod lover

how great would it be to have a small tube amp to warm up the sound of all these sterile mp3 files? unfortunately its impossible to find something small. and modern? forget it. the connectors and plugs we use today weren't in existence when tubes were standard. apparently someone else felt the same way--check out . 1 watt of tube power (which measures differently than solid state), enough to drive some desktop speakers for a clean, alive sound signal. designed to work great with your ipod, and apparently it'll make your old vinyl records sound unbelievable.

johnny cash movie looks good!

more movie trailers to keep you entertained. with joaquin phoenix and reese witherspoon. comes out mid-nov. maybe the first film by reese w. that isn't irritating to me.

the pharcyde used to be the shit.

the pharcyde, as they used to be

fatlip's solo album is finally coming out in the next month or two. i wonder what the hell took so long. shit, i remember hearing about a release date for it as far back as 1999! i got an advance copy, and while it's not amazing, it's not at all bad either. a sucky thing about it is that anyone who really cares about fatlip will probably already have heard several of the songs, since they've appeared on singles and as leaked demos in various forms over the years. oh well.

listening to the album (which was originally called revenge of the nerd but has been retitled the loneliest punk) got me thinking about how much i used to LOVE the pharcyde. i mean i used to play my bizarre ride tape over and over and over in my janky fake walkman for like two years. i liked labcabcalifornia too (especially the first single, "runnin") when it came out, but overall it kinda lacked the cohesion of the first album -- i'm pretty sure that's a result of the group using several producers instead of just j-swift. later, after fatlip got the boot for smoking crack and slimkid bailed to record singy songs about floating among the cosmos or whateverthefuck, i pretty much stopped paying attention to the pharcyde. sad days for sure.

anyway, all that is a longish way of introducing one of my favorite remixes from bizarre ride: "passin' me by (fly as pie mix)." it's got a super cool loungey feel to it and bootie brown just killllls it vocally, doing some sort of smart-ass mock-sinatra thing.

oh yeah, one pharcyde remix i've been trying to find for a while is the baka boyz version of "ya mama." it was rejected by the pharcyde's label for some reason, so it was never officially released, but being that the baka boyz were dj's on power 106 in la, they played it on-air once in a while. it had the same lyrics as the original but a totally new vocal take, just like the mix i posted above. if you have a copy of the baka boyz remix or know anything about it, please let me know. thanks.
