…I have more time, am less tired, and have fewer than 4 drinks in me.
*I have been posting videos of phonographs playing records for nearly a year.
*I have also posted about Flickr contributors using photos of the back of Netflix sleeves to kick off mini-reviews of movies.
*Mike Sacks takes photographs of his television.
These are symptoms, more to come on the (good) disease. Thank you.
If you haven’t been paying attention, there are now only 2 segments remaining in this second flight of Trapped it the Closets, and I have to say, it’s been a disappointment. It has all of the broadness of the first 12 episodes, but none of the poignant absurdity. Although there’s somewhat of a Trapped in the Closet reveal in Chapter 20, there is no incontinent, asthmatic midget stripper to be seen. And thus, I am saddened.
Watch the latest here, and tune in over the next couple of days to see if the absurdity can be recalled, and the series can be redeemed.
A video (supposedly the winner of a fan-made vid contest held by Engine Room Recordings) created for Devendra Banhart’s cover of Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back in Anger” from the Guilt By Association album (which I mentioned previously, and which spawned the Petra Haden-meets-Journey fried egg vid I linked to yesterday).
I would like to recommend the video that follows, and indeed the trifecta of videos edited by this talented YouTube director. Three episodes of Deadwood, each distilled down to its swearing. NSFW, obvs. [via]
You can watch all three at once here, which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
CAN YOU FEEL THE TESTOSTERONE LEAKING OUT OF YOUR TEAR DUCTS!?!?!?
You may have previously seen this Lebowski EFF OFF. Which is not safe for work. And amusing.
An antique Victor Talking Machine model VV-IX 309747 G.
INCREDIBLY SOOTHING and HIGHLY recommended with the SOUND ON.
A 5-minute trailer for the incredibly popular site PostSecret. Not a single baby-daddy, asthmatic, midget stripper hiding under a kitchen cabinet, but still very compelling.
With the rockingness of 400 dragons, Dan Deacon has created a DVD called Ultimate Reality. Deacons’s crazy hippie mashup consists of neon-tinged, powerfully backed video footage of California’s governor in his Hollywood heyday.
Warning: What follows is 6 minutes and 48 seconds of pure Schwarzenegger-fueled psychedelia. [via]
RECOMMENDED with the SOUND ON. And having taken some mushrooms, preferably.
This incredibly huge device from yesteryear can reproduce musical sounds via radio, cassette, 8-track, and album! Try them all!
(I recommend listening with the SOUND OFF for maximum SOOTHINGNESS.)
Jack Hylton and His Orchestra performing “Little White Lies.”
INCREDIBLY SOOTHING. And highly recommended with the sound ON.
How was the Ooza?
*AT&T may have cut Eddie Vedder’s mic as he sang anti-Bush lyrics (to the tune of “Another Brick in the Wall”).
*Says Bol: “I realize it’s entirely indefensible, but I still consider myself a somewhat more than pedestrian fan of Silverchair.” WEIRD.
*Pop Candy has a monster post on shows and parties, and blogger Whitney even Twittered her entire Chicago trip.
Finally, Daft Punk’s “Face to Face” complete with madly flashing green pyramid FX.
Glad I didn’t have to go.
