showbiz jews

includes a few fun surprises. for instance, every magician ever is jewish. also, connie chung converted!

silly video of barney the dinosaur singing tupac

these kids love to get down

my guess is that any barney jokes were out of style already over ten years ago, and tupac sadly just had his 9 year anniversary of being killed. but don't dismiss this video just yet, watch the crafty work that has barney and some real sweet kids . if you don't laugh, you'll smirk at the least.

(thanks, af.)

a fifth beatle

everyone loves the beatles. click if you don't.

but certain music from beatific souls like , some , early and seem to be inspired beyond just being an homage of the greatest band ever. the blog does a bang up job of paying tribute to my favorite beatle apostle ever elliott smith. includes great links to articles and a handful of beatles covers by the late, great singer/songwriter.

rock and roll for assholes!

get it? the "right" brothers!!! as in right wing!

do you hate your ears and eyes? then be sure to check out , the new song and video by the the right brothers. what's surprising: despite being staunch republicans, the right brothers apparently have little regard for copyright law (there's some heavy-duty "we didn't start the fire"-biting going on here). what's not at all surprising: some big fat white guy with a modicum of musical talent loves george bush.
What makes The Right Brothers different?
While artists such as Toby Keith, Darrel Worley and Charlie Daniels have recorded great patriotic songs no artist has ever tackled the issues addressed by The Right Brothers. Topics on their albums include: the abortion debate, illegal immigration, taxation, Ronald Reagan, the melting-pot (or lack thereof), America’s right to defend herself regardless of what the rest of the world thinks, appreciation for our brave soldiers (past and present), political apathy, and more. The Right Brothers are in tune with today’s political issues and that is reflected in every word they write.

("thanks," pleasure.)

white stripes - denial twist video (and two other good vids)

last month we wrote about the village voice writer who acted in the upcoming gondry-directed white stripes video. well guess what? it's out now and it's on google video. sadly, i have to say this is my least favorite of the gondry/white stripes videos. maybe if the video quality was a bit clearer, but from what i see the perspective distortion ended up looking like not much more than a circus funhouse mirror...

after you're done watching that, check out the new vid by my third-favorite mexican rock band, plastilina mosh-- .

and when THAT'S done, watch the video for by stephen malkmus. sounds soooo much like pavement!
(thanks, sizod.)

rap geeks: get excited!

aceyalone's upcoming is entirely produced by rjd2. i tend to prefer hip-hop albums with only one producer, so i'm really interested to hear what this sounds like.
Having worked together on Aceyalone's last album, "Love and Hate" the chemistry was undeniable and a full album together was only a matter of time. "To me, Acey and his crew were like the west coast Organized Konfusion in the mid 90's," notes RJ. "I always had a ton of respect for him, and of course, those are the kind of people you want to work with."

this is how i always thought it was supposed to be

Hipster Super Heroes- Here to save us from what exactly?

With so many fantastically stupid hairstyles floating around MySpace, I've found myself adding the best of the worst to my favorites list over the past few months, compiling a sort of "Hall Of Shame" which I knew, one day, needed to be presented to the masses.


And if you haven't gotten your fill of completely retarded haircuts, you can always revisit .

wolverine AND magneto spin off movies

one year ago, fox announced an x-men spin off for both and .

year old news is hardly news except that i'm pretty sure they never told anyone, because no one was a bigger wolverine fan growing up than me. anyway, hugh jackman will reprise his role, but ian mcklellan won't--the magneto flick is a prequel. x-men 3 debuts in may.

and, just to keep themselves at a below-average level, marvel studios is releasing (starring nick cage and eva mendes) in july. it's guaranteed to suck worse than the hulk and fantastic four, but maybe not as bad as . and don't skip this chance to check out nick's sweet hairdo wig from the film!

something to crowe about

of great songs from cameron crowe movies.


vote for jonathan (the guy in the middle)

my pal and one of sneakmove's favorite comics in the world is up for a big part in the new dodge commercial.

he's hilarious, despite the fact that he smoked grass for years until his brother turned him on to marijuana. he had smoked acres.

for jonathan gotsick, moorehead, kentucky's favorite son, to get his own HEMI. he won't let you down.

forward-thinking questions about the video over the net

the video iPod, like almost all things apple, stepped up comsumer awareness of big breakthroughs in a new technology, big time. are already reaching out into new mediums that we all could have predicted would become relevant sooner or later. here are some decent questions to get you thinking about how the video on demand revolution may affect you.

1. how much longer until you can sign up for a vodcast of the top 5 movie trailers for the week? music videos? bus rides and plane rides are about to become a lot better.

2. when will video iChat, which is basically jetson-styled video phone, or like products hit the tipping point?

3. how can you make money as a content provider for video on demand?

4. how much longer before your "iPod" (portable digital player) is plugged into your "Tivo" (time-shifting delivery system) and you grab it, completely loaded automatically with fresh content, as you head out the door each morning?

5. how much crazier can get? see #2.

gorillaz dirty harry shockwave game

the single and video "dirty harry" from the latest gorillaz cd are both pretty smokin. , where you drive the gorillaz' truck through the desert to save the children while the song plays, is maybe the coolest adaptation of a song and video into a unique interactive experience. hard to stop playing--that thing gets squirrely!

penguin cafe orchestra

released their early records through . their sound has a similar artsy bent, but is more staccato. one might call it "contemporary classical" or even "new age". i hate to say either. just check out from their first record. s/t. 1976. eg records.

little kids with huge machine guns = midwest insanity

in the late 90's i passed through oklahoma city with my british future-brother-in-law. as we both grew up in areas where guns are frowned at, we decided to go to a shooting range and knock it after we tried it. started small, and spent 90 minutes working our way up to one frightening giant desert eagle handgun. oklahoma, ya know?

well maybe we should've driven a few exits further because bomarr just sent us the link to of little midwest kids blowing up a shooting range of cars and busses with giant machine guns. who knew they made shooting galleries like that???

o'donel levy

i recently grabbed the breeding of mind lp by . levy is a jazz guitarist and composer who began working in the 60s. as was the standard at the time, there are several covers of contemporary pop songs mixed in with original songs. straightforward stuff. makes you want to dance a little. i particularly liked his version of . no date on the record. late sixties. groove merchant records.

classic commodore 64 game songs, remixed

another vegan lesbian tattoo artist with fresh tortillas

last night i was at medjool in sf's mission district, hiding between handsomely dressed guys and girls wearing suits and dresses, and i made a wish:

"please, magic jesus, lets keep the mission district a secret just a little longer, free from the scummy rich folk who don't get vegan lesbian tattoo-tortilla parlors, who hate bicycles, who think the local guy walking past the parking garage is obviously an attendant."

i looked up at the patrons and felt a shiver--this was a wish that baby j wouldn't be granting me: .

information leaf blower is back with their list. it's just a list and designed to activate your opinions and kind of piss you off. so let's forget that a reformed pixies didn't make the list and check out the methodology.
I emailed over 40 "music/MP3 bloggers" (since we are our own genre now) and asked them to send me a list, ranked 1-10, of the 10 best American bands that they've seen or heard in the last year. The purpose of this list is to reward bands for generating buzz in the year 2005. This isn't a ranking of career longevity. I wanted to know who people are using their bandwidth to talk about. Once I got the lists, I gave each slot a corresponding numerical number (similar to the way MLB tallies their MVP voting), and the list was born. In case of a tie, the higher slot was awarded to the artist with more votes (i.e. someone with 15 points from one vote was ranked lower than someone with three votes of 5).

  • it seems like a good way for some nerdy kid to avoid all normal social interaction by creating a virtual world where he can really become half squirrel, half owl-man
  • and, when i think of full immersion, i expect this thing to somehow pinch me on the behind-otherwise its useless!

stern stops the skunk

for a little while, was the greatest website ever.

torrent streams of everything howard stern evolved from entertaining to historic when howard 100 took to the air earlier this month on radio. so, not only could you find a digital version of every stern's last infinity broadcasts, you could also check out the daily howard 100 news along day-long events like wendy the retard locked in a room and the high-pitch eric shit-weighing contest.

the howard 100 news displays the innovative irony that takes stern beyong vulgar into the the sublime. complete with am radio news chimes and stuffy-voiced white people, the news team covers the stern world of wack with the displaced interest usually reserved for updates on wars that barely exist, traffic reports and relationships between female teachers and students.

now stern's lawyers have shut down the skunk. it's too bad, but would subscribe to sirius if he believed in it. maybe so should i.

question: these torrents still are out there if you can find them. the media policy seems to be shut down the things that make it easy to pirate. is this smart? how much would you pay for an mp3 of a stern show?

what do you get when you combine star wars, nerdy mathematicians and singing?

this mathematics grad student lives his ultimate fantasy

apparently some geeks at m.i.t. had a bit of remorse about not attending a school that lets its students develop a well-rounded academic AND social life, so they decided to emulate an art project you'd see at a regular university. sadly, being total nerds, they have a skewed and limited vision of art and pop culture. the result? . its got tapdancing storm troopers, dancing ewoks, a score that incorporates classics from elton john, andrew lloyd webber and a rapping lando calrissian.

just like listening to maroon 5 on your the radio in your car, electronic arts has realized that if you listen to something enough times over, the music will infect your brain. now they're taking advantage of this to sell mp3s, ringtones and more of their wide range of video game soundtracks.

plastic people of the universe

prague's emerged shortly after the soviets invaded czechoslovakia in 1968. the satellite czech government deemed the music subversive and the plastics had to go underground. it's a story of survival and tremendous commitment. they even had a defense fund at amnesty international back in the day. the lp I have, egon bondy's lonely heart's club banned, sounds a bit like a slowed-down, gothic version of frank zappa. weird and great. check out . 1978. invisible records.

five things you didn't know...

maybe i've misinterpreted, but there are a few surprisingly interesting lists on their site:

- five things you didn't know about (to be directed by spielberg? what?)
- five things you didn't know about (four of the top 10 billboard albums in june 2005 were reggaeton)
- five things you didn't know about (actually, not a lot of new info, but check out this pic of thomas haydon church as sandman)

korn's twisted transistor video feat. snoop, lil jon, xzibit and david banner

, with the guys in korn all played by big name rappers. sometimes i'm surprised by how much cred johnathan davis has--like how he provides commentary own a crip walking video a pal of mine owns. this is a fun video, but definitely geared towards korn's dedicated fans.

röyksopp video - what else is there

saw this video on a few weeks ago. liked it a lot. heard the song on kcrw last night and remembered that its a nice song with a nice video. but the wmv format? not nice. oh well, check it out anyway. different vibe than the melody a.m. stuff - much more mature sound.

laser printing patriotism supports freedom

sneakmove superbuddy sent over a scan of a cringe-causing toner package. "american spirit compatible laser toner cartridge" - supporting those service members who protect our freedom through package design. this is real!
what about the profits? they're supporting the a.s. pocketbooks. ok, that part is 100% assumption.

and don't forget that another sneakmove pal as well. a beautiful piece, señor halfway.

charles lamont

is a jam off the only LP ever recorded by charles lamont. kinda reminds me of van morrison in places. maybe a bit of captain beefhart too, but more R&Bish. the LP is titled a legend in his own mind. when I grabbed this record in santa barbara, the record store clerk said, "oh that guy gave up music and only made one record." the lack of info on the internet seems to support that statement. no date, but probably between 1968 and 1970. UNI records.

diplo to retire

the boston phoenix writes that and will just do producing from now on. this has got to be sorta well-known in bloggy music circles, but new to me. if he's playing anywhere near you soon, check him out. it's a real good time.

mp3 of michael jordan struggling to speak

of jordan trying to say things correctly for his gatorade commercial voiceover. from , who apparently love to rip on (wizards-era) jordan.
"Gatorade. IS it IN you?"

jared from subway would have a fit!

made a 30,000 calorie sandwich … and then ate it! absolutely fucking disgusting and hilarious. canola oil accounted for more than 18,000 of the calories. check out the pics!

how stuff works: star wars' death star

fun but totally geeky: from
So basically the Death Star is made of four major components: the battle station, the Superlaser, the propulsion system and the hypermatter reactor that powers it all. Let's look at all of these components.

daddy, dude

has a k-fed mp3; oh yes it is fun. and he knows you're snickering:
my prediction is that y'all gonna hate/on the style we create/straight 2008

check out why?'s new video. why? because it's rad.

flying why? featuring mc friendly doggz

bomarr clued us in that there's a new up on the anticon site. it's directed by ravi zupa and is for the song "rubber traits." n-joy!

"analog hole" - mpaa set on destroying digital video

this past week, while the teenagers were throwing eggs, the twenty-somethings were drinking at parties, and the thirty and forty year olds were taking their kids out and passing out candy, the mpaa proposed a new set of restrictions aimed at creating .

this is bad, very bad--it will immediately alleviate us from all the incredible video advancements and developments of the last decade or so, many of which are moving along in a direction that can be perfectly agreeable to the video creation and distribution industries, while protecting the dinosaur model that hollywood demands we all continue to abide by.
This three-part agenda -- controlling digital media devices, controlling analog converters, controlling the Internet -- is a frightening peek at Hollywood's vision of the future.

commonmedia announces drm-free music and video stores

, a "community-based media distribution services and solutions," is opening a . unlike major online music sellers, commonmedia lets artists sell their works without being encoded with accessibility-impeding digital rights management blockades - and their system operates using bit torrent.

sounds like a good spot for aspiring musicians and videographers to post their works. no indication if they're involved with creative commons, though they should be.

celebrate cassettes!

from japan has a fun classic cassette image collection. really brings back memories of taping songs from the radio over my stepdad's old cassettes. makes me wanna cash in some maxell points so hard!

lindsay lohan is trying to tell us something

"the world watches all my problems"

maybe she hasn't always had it so easy. you'll find that message hidden in her video . lets go easy on her, everyone. she directed her own video.


best halloween pic on p.i.t.n.b.

is a good site for letting your brain unwind, not unlike reading a people magazine with a bitchy attitude. i've picked my fave halloween photo posted on their page, for its sheer mockery. nice work guys - i couldn't agree more.

breaking down the secret of nerdish unpopularity

from someone who endured high school geek-dom but also managed to crack into a more "popular" crowd. lots of theories, advice and explanations included.
The popular kids learned to be popular, and to want to be popular, the same way the nerds learned to be smart, and to want to be smart: from their parents.
here's another tip: rinse your salami-smelling armpits with soap once in a while.
