Borderline

December 16, 2009

Haven’t been big into The Flaming Lips since freshman year, but this is pretty damn infectious. Makes me want to dig up (or more likely download) some of their older albums. It also makes me want to buy a Madonna album. What?

Pretty impressive Neil Young impersonation by Mr. Fallon. I generally don’t stay up late enough to catch his show, a feat further complicated by the fact that I don’t have a TV, but that notwithstanding, this clip would certainly make me at least think about switching the channel over. Possibly. Maybe.

“Used To Be”

November 24, 2009

How come no one told me about this Beach House track, or their upcoming new album? Here’s another new track that’s not as good, but maybe it just needs a fun little video like this.

Is this really a new band, or is it just an extension of his solo project? I think the latter, especially since they apparently played his entire solo album — twice! But regardless, putting six question marks on the marquee, does it get any better than that?

Everything

I can’t decide if I like this a lot or love it, but I’ve watched it three times so far in the past two days. Check out the slightly less awesome (but still awesome, especially the first clip) Episode 1 as well. Hope they keep making more.

Iranian Street Art Exhibit

September 25, 2009

Nice NPR story on a current Iranian street art exhibit in Los Angeles. I’m trying to talk myself into checking it out, even if the style is a little too Banksy for my taste. I love that they had to sneak this stuff through customs though — and that some of the pieces didn’t make it!

My Boys

This would have gone from an 8.5 to a 9 had they not changed the lyrics. Maybe it’s cause I listened to the Magnetic Fields too much in college, but I’m a sucker for a cover where the gender of the singer changes, but the lyrics remain the same.
