stone roses v j-lo - fools gold & jenny from the block

more stone roses mash-ups, this time with j-lo. my favourite part of this video are the cuts back and forth between ian brown and j-lo dancing.

the stone roses v lily allen

lily allen was only 4 years old when the stones roses released the album . the combination of the mancunian lads and this young londoner make for an interesting mash-up.

ridiculous superhero origins

with comic con last weekend, there was a comic book movie trailer that got posted and then removed from youtube (iron man), that still looks awesome (dark knight) and some chatter about the hulk movie that i'm curious about.

and cracked has a hilarious/insightful list of ...
The United States government cautions Reed about getting exposed to potentially lethal cosmic rays, though astoundingly has no objections to a US citizen shooting off homemade rockets into the atmosphere..


i was reading where a guy said common was the most boring rapper in the last 15 years. not sure if i can argue with that. there are probably about 5 songs that i really like, and then a bunch of other songs that are recorded battle raps and/or church songs over beats. that said, common's next album, finding forever is supposed to be really good and with production by mr. west and mr. dilla, along with guests like d'angelo (will he lose weight to be on the tour?), lily allen (will she?), and dj premier, it should be the perfect release timing to prime you to buy kanye's album. right kanye? john legend will probably drop three weeks later. either that or he will leave west's label for starbucks music. i bet paul mccartney pays better.

photosynth + seadragon

this video is a truly amazing demo of two new apps (environments?) from microsoft live labs. is described like so:

"takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and displays them in a reconstructed three-dimensional space."

is a powerful browsing tool and wants to do the following:

"change the way we use screens, from wall-sized displays to mobile devices, so that visual information can be smoothly browsed regardless of the amount of data involved or the bandwidth of the network"

one caveat... there are lots of bmw ads in the video.

wire in the 80s

i finally picked up 1987 record . i'd been meaning to get it after being reminded about the great song "ahead" that's on it (check quarterbar's re-work of it below). well, the record is good. some of it's kinda of goth-sounding with foreboding vocals and sparse, droning instrumentation. other songs are upbeat and bright. it definitely doesn't sound anything like the artsy punk wire of the 70s. good but different.

wire "madman's honey"
wire "ahead (II)(quarterbar drum-up)"

time's 50 best websites

i'm not a huge fan of time magazine, the publication that chose bush as man of the year in '04. it pains me a bit to give them credit to for hipping me to anything, much less anything web-related, but they did. their list of had a couple interesting sites i didn't know about. both help with phone issues.

already snatched up by google, time describes the site like so...
most of us have at least three phone numbers—home, work, cell—and don't always know which one to give out, or later regret the choice we made. grand central is a free, one-number-ringing-multiple-phones routing service that solves all these problems, while giving you a level of control over your calls that earlier services like it did not. to get started, grand central assigns you a number (you can ask for a particular area code, then choose from a list) and you set up the forwarding rules. one obvious advantage is that when you're at your desk, you don't have to waste wireless minutes by taking calls on your cell phone; when you're away from your desk, you don't have to miss business calls ringing in at the office, because all your calls ring at all your phones, all the time. you can white-list your friends and colleagues so their calls come right through. you can also black-list numbers by sending them to the Spam folder or set up the outgoing message ("this phone is not in service") to play for unwanted callers. you can screen calls by listening in as callers are leaving a voicemail message, and then cut in to take the call... or not.

it does only one thing, but it does it oh, so well. on the home page, just type in a cell phone number and a brief message ("pick up dry cleaning") and this site sends it out as a text message to that phone on the date and at the time you specify.

pee wee factoids

i had clip, since i think that the snakes scene from pee wees big adventure is a metaphor for life. It made me think about paul rueben's trivia. i found out some interesting factoids:
- he played a young elton john's manager (played by justin timberlake) in
- he met phil hartman when they were part of the groundlings together in los angeles, where hartman helped to develop the pee-wee character
- he was in the ranconteurs', jack white's side project, second video
- john singleton offered up his script of "boyz 'n the hood" for review to ruebens, when he was working as a security guard on the set of pee-wee's playhouse. reuben's declined the offer.
- although reuben's show was a saturday AM children's show, it had the same budget, 325,000, as a primetime sitcom
- he was a marine. semper fi.

too bad you missed ps1's 2007 kickoff party

sf-to-nyc transplant audrey (check her ) has sent a teaser vid each of the past two years of the kickoff party for ps1''s "warm up" concert series. a daytime dj disco event that would be more fitting in europe, the dance party is an anomoly for the "too-cool-to-dance" u.s. hipster movement. check it out all summer long and don't skip the next kickoff party next year.

from the :
Warm Up is P.S.1's critically acclaimed music series and has become one of the most anticipated summer events in New York City. The series is housed within the architectural installation created by the winner of the annual P.S.1 and MoMA organized Young Architects Program. Together, the music, architecture and exhibition program provide a unique multi-sensory experience for music fans, artists, and families alike.

Warm Up was conceived in 1997 as a summer-long dance party to attract crowds to P.S.1 and Long Island City, Queens. The series runs every Saturday from July through early September and draws thousands of local and international visitors each day.

Highlights from the series include a stellar group of international DJs and live music ensembles: DJ Harvey, Groove Collective, Afrika Bambaataa, Mad Professor, Richie Hawtin, Francois K, Fischerspooner, Kid Koala, Arto Lindsay, Scissor Sisters, Luke Vibert, and many more.

badass offroad monotread motorcycle thing

combine a motorcycle, half a tank and a snowmobile and you've got an amazing new machine that looks like something from . german design students tilmann schlootz and oliver keller presented these two new concept vehicles to the 2006 michelin design challenge. the concept uses a newly designed flexible mono-tread system in place of two wheels to create a huge increase in traction and control.
is designed as an everyday use vehicle for all areas in the world with harder climatic and geographic conditions such as Alaska, Greenland, desert areas or mountain regions like the Himalaya. It can carry two persons and provides much space to transport any kind of small to midsize goods.

uses the engine concept and its unbeatable off road advantages as a race device. Made for professional riders, it has a very light body and a broad handlebar. This concept could take part in rallies Paris-Dakar or the Baja races.
put a small piece together about these vehicles, with a cool 3d diagram video of how it works.

let's hope they make a real one as it currently only exists as a 1/5 scale model.
