The footage of the damage from the earthquake in Japan is heartbreaking, but if any country can pull it together and rebuild, it’s Japan. I have no doubt they will be back and better than ever sooner than anyone expects. So to showcase the kooky awesomeness that is Japan, I present you with a seriously awesome video from World Order. They are a seven-man group made up of male dancers, including former UFC fighter Genki Sudo. The guy is a modern-day renaissance man. Not only was he an MMA fighter, but he is also an actor, director, artist, writer, choreographer and musician. Way to make me feel lazy, buddy! The sheer precision of these guys in this video puts just about any dance troupe I have seen to shame. Not that I have seen many dance troupes, but just watch and you’ll see what I mean.
Speaking of awesome, ANR, (formerly Awesome New Replublic,) made a short slasher film and have used footage from it for this “Big Problem” video. I don’t know why movies don’t feature slasher music with that creepy synth anymore.
Fleet Foxes are playing two shows in Vancouver at the end of this month and they sold out with a quickness. No surprise though since all the tracks I’ve heard so far from their upcoming album, “Helplessness Blues”, are sounding damn good. It doesn’t come out until May 3rd, but I’m pretty stoked to hear it. In the meantime, here is a video for “Grown Ocean” from that much anticipated album.
No one seems to know very much about WU LYF. Their name is an acronym for World Unite/Lucifer Youth Foundation. They are mysterious. They seem like a bit of a cult. They are from Manchester. They put out some pretty great tunes. That’s about it.
In case you missed it, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots did the impossible last night – they made that godawful Rebecca Black song tolerable. They also raised $26,000 for charity DonorsChoose, which is a nice bonus.
