As if by some psychic, magical, Icelandic connection, a new video from Jónsi.
An Horse is from Brisbane and their video for “Postcards” is cute and neat and great.
“Drunk Girls” is the party hit of the summer and the vid is directed by Spike Jonze and features some panda anarchy.
I have loved Spike Jonze’s work since back when he was doing skate vids, (on video tape!), and he is the director of one of the only Nic Cage movies I actually can sit through and enjoy – Adaptation. According to IMDB, his instruction to Nic Cage was, “to ignore all of his acting instincts”. To me this translates to, “good acting is the opposite of Nic Cage”, which is something I have been saying for a long time. It’s a real George Costanza situation.
There is this 12-track, 8-bit album of covers, and it’s pretty fun. You can listen to it in full here, and if you like what you hear, you can download it for a fee of your choosing, (minimum 50¢ per track or $5 for the whole album). So far, I really enjoyed the covers of “The Safety Dance”, “New Year’s Day”, and “Say It Ain’t So”.
Matej Kren has built a tunnel out of books and it is freaking beautiful. It’s on display at the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna and looks like something out of a Mark Romanek video. Check out the amazingness here. It’s worth the click, I promise.
Don’t you love it when you have a bunch of drinks, go home and pass out, only to wake up to find your dog has eaten your rotting, infected toe? Wait, what?
