muse - "knights of cydonia" video

i've been pretty much indifferent about up until now. but holy crap -- this video is off the fucking chain!

scratchappy halloween!

a little halloween treat courtesy of . this one comes off the classic scratchcratchratchatch mixtape. he recently released the followup to scratchcratchratchatch, and is kicking off a this week in support of it. koala's easily one of my favorite performers around and i definitely recommend checking him out - even non-scratch fans will have their pants charmed right off them!

totally awesome star travel book from 1979

my favorite book from growing up, star travel from 1979. describes the history and future of transportation, with a focus on awesome things like rocketbelts, mag-lev tubes, and hollowed out asteroids. it has some wear and tear, but the illustrations still give me that thrilling feel i had as a kid.

i made a pdf for you to download.

online ouija board

i started watching on tonight, somehow its not as creepy edited for tv and with commercials. has been showing some great classic horror movies this week including , & . one movie that has always scared me is probably because it came out around the time i played around with a . maybe its the spirit of but the intrigue returned, however this didn't seem to work for me, or make me poop my pants.

remember manimal?

i had completely forgotten about this show until today, when it was mention on in the context of one of the all time greatest network flops. believe it or not this show was exported across the pond, i remember watching it on sunday nights as a kid.

friday means rap music

it isn't so much that i think it's the best album ever, just that i had to have ice-t-like fortitude in to hunt down ini's "center of attention" online. it wasn't so much that i really wanted it, either, just that we were talking about it at work and how the album survives despite it's just-above-mediocre mc's and writing. all the production is amazing, but many amazing sounding albums have fallen flat due to vocals. in fact, center of attention was released as part of a dual-disc "underground soul classics," and the second disc, was deda's, "the original baby pa," remembered for its beat-detracting vocals. one internet note said, and probably should be discounted, "harsh, at times irritating...." what a bummer. to have an unreleased set come out, one a classic and the other a dud. what does that remind you of? you got it. ooh, or these except both of them are classics.

plone's unreleased 2nd album

who could forget my previous post about the english electronic band ? their first record was genius. beautiful synthy melodies with a friendly, melancholy feel. they made a second record that never came out. i got a hold of a few tracks and oooh damn, it's good! it's the same idea, but even more intensely so.

black sheep anew

black sheep's is undedniably one of my favorite albums and i am pleased to see that they dropped a new album yesterday. so if their first single is any indication, then this might just be a good album.

black sheep's whodat from 8wm/NOVAKANE. 2006.

forbidden crypts of haunted music

has tons of vintage scary album covers. each one is clickable and has all the audio available for download! there's gotta be 200 of them. it's mostly really campy stuff. there's a bunch of kid's records in there too. if you're hosting a halloween party or just want to "get in the mood", go grab some creepy music, stories, and sound effects. here're some random bits:

friday means rap music

do you ever meet someone and judge them by their ipod? you might be at a bar, say, dinner at limon in sf, or downtown at august in ny and your date runs off to the bathroom. you think to yourself, "i like this girl. mom was a teacher, dad, a doctor. family has good money, and she has down-to-earth tastes. that's solid. she went to princeton but did a year volunteering overseas. hmmm, there is something going on here...but...what does she listen to?" then, you flip through the ipod and see if she is *clearly* the girl of your dreams. you click-wheel through. good stuff. mix of credible indie, and some majors--mf doom, peter, bjorn, and john, with some soulful van morrison and sam cooke. all the way around. good mix. she is a keeper...even if there is a stevie nicks track in there.

cbgb, now just t-shirts and memories

cbgb's recent lease and eviction struggles have been well documented, and the nyt has a nice , yesterday night at the legendary nyc nightspot. as an added bonus, i finally found out what all those letters stand for.

aww, isn't that cute?

one of my fave moe moments.

f-f-f-f-friday was last week

the name "marathon" comes from the legend of pheidippides, a greek soldier who, according to legend, was sent from the town of marathon to athens to announce that the persians had been miraculously defeated in the battle of marathon. jon sublet would have been pissed to hear that news, let me tell you. turns out that this guy is running 50 marathons in 50 days ending at the ny marathon. he is an ultra marathoner and will do these ridiculous 100 mile races or all night runs. crazy. in an article i read, they asked him what his most memorable hallucinations were, from his long races. one of them was that he saw an authentic 1849 gold rush miner walking across the road in the middle of the night. i probably wouldn't run 100 miles to see that, but i would roll out and pay a few bucks to a shady homie to get something that would make me see some stuff like that. another part of the article talked about how, on a long run, he ate a full hawaiian pizza and a cheesecake. now, that sounds like it would be more my speed. maybe for the monday night football game tonight....

cassette generator is that heat!

friday mini-mix: seven songs, five are embarrassing

this is a .zip file with seven songs i have been listening to a lot lately. i won't pretend that all of them are "good," but they are all "awesome." yes, even the fergie one. update: links to individual tracks added.

  • girls gone wild - ludacris (this is one of the most ridiculously great neptunes beats in a while. and ludacris kills it with some high-energy freshraps about his incredible success with the ladies.)

  • diddy rock - diddy f/ timbaland, twista & shawnna (if you would have told me in 1998 that i'd someday be talking about how much i liked a puff daddy song, i would have called you a very dirty name. but in the end, if timbaland produces your track, someone else writes your rhymes, and you get two good guest rappers to take the second and third verse, is it really your song anyway?)

  • fergalicious - fergie (sure to be a highly-controversial pick. but come on, this incorporates the funnest elements of songs by jj fad, afro-rican, and 2 live crew. you can't go wrong with that, even if your face looks like you pulled the skin of off kirstie alley's head and stretched parts of it out by mistake when trying to fit it over your own malformed skull.)

  • something about you (mr. oizo remix) - jamelia (just super slammingly hot. i wish mr. oizo would produce original tracks for pop rappers and r&b singers, instead of just doing remixes of them, because he always kills it. and this is no exception!)

  • that's that - snoop dogg f/ r. kelly (this is just classic snoop, with awesome lines like "nothin' on my chest but some ladies from the midwest." and though r. kelly is an absolutely yucky human being, he does bring a lot of flavor to the hook. i'm just surprised that people are still willing to work with him or even associate with him.)

  • mr. jones - mike jones (exellent remake of the counting crows hit. SIKE! i usually like mike jones, but i sorta hate his vocals on this track. it's also about a minute and a half too long. that said, the beat and the chorus are super great. i'd love to hear a version of this song that was three and a half minutes long and focused way more on the chorus.)

  • when you were young (jacques lu cont remix) - the killers (like the pixies covering bruce springsteen, then remixed by someone very, very tan and living in south beach. hooray for incredibly derivative music!)

the trailer for the upcoming film looks pretty great. a purposefully over-the-top funny horror film that embraces a low budget aesthetic. and it's a double feature! imdb describes it like this:

the best metallica cover i've ever heard

orion was my favorite metallica song--epic and complex, i learned just a bit on guitar. played a new version a couple nights ago, performed by , an ireland based acoustic guitar duo with roots in mexico city's metal scene. their cover is incredible, spanish-tinged but as fiery as the original. rodrigo y gabriela's self-titled album (recorded in bath, england) was released earlier this week; they perform a short west coast tour later this month.

friday means rap music

a's sweep! was anyone else hanging on that one just waiting for them to blow it? im an a's fan, don't get me wrong, but i was nervous. moneyball is like communism, or handjobs - good in potential, but not in practice. not everyone likes to eat the same 'ol beef stroganoff every night. sometimes i like steak a poivre, just like sometimes i like a big superstar hitter who sells a lot of jerseys and strikes fear in other player's hearts. frank thomas? yikes! that is like thinking you are going to get some minute rice and hamburger helper beef stroganoff, but instead getting the a poivre without asking!

so far, this playoff season has been a fun one and i just might start watching the championship series, as long as i don't get superstitious in thinking that me not watching had something to do with them winning. so maybe i will hang out, watch the departed, munch on a steak a poivre, do some pushups to get swoll, and wait for the winning scores to roll in. anyone excited that t.o. is back in philly this weekend? fight! fight! fight! all this jock talk makes me want to throw on some tights, a jersey, cleats, grab a cold gatorade fierce, and play sudoku all day!
