You can have a burst of imagination, of insight, but oftentimes that’s not the end, just the beginning. Your whole life is about getting ready, so when you have that great start, you’ve got the chops to finish.Bob Lefsetz
Piracy is the new radioNeil Young
“I look at the Internet as the new radio,” Young said. “I look at radio as gone … Piracy is the new radio, that’s how music gets around.”
And no, I don’t want them back (College Humor video link)
I was entertained. I think I want to go to Amsterdam. I am curious to know what the ROI of these kind of projects is compared to traditional media (TV, print etc)
From the Vimeo page: Visiting Amsterdam hotspots and related people of the MiNiBar, Momkai, La Melodia (who made the Soundtrack) and HOTEL who designed the Amsterdam map you can download at nike.com/sportswear
My good friend Michael sent me an email today with this YouTube link. The video shows bicycle riders doing some extremely serious stunts. The song in that video is pretty cool too, I knew I had heard it before.
Which brings me to the movie (and trailer embedded below) Love The Beast with Eric Bana, Jay Leno and Jeremy Clarkson (oh, and also Dr. Phil… wtf?).
The song on both videos is called The Funeral by Band of Horses
I have not seen Love the Beast yet, but I plan on doing so.
I have no clue on when the movie will be (or was) out in US theaters, there is no mention of this on their site or YouTube profile. It will be in US theaters on August 1 (thanks Alex!).
I just stumbled upon the LateNightTales series.
Each CD in the series consists of a collection of tunes from different artists put together by a another artist. My first listen is from the LateNightTales: Fatboy Slimmix. You can listen to a continuous 1 hour+ mix on the Lala player embedded below or buy the CD at Amazon.
I love the sound of breaking glass!
Bought the album for my wife (really) and like a few of the songs, particularly The Fear (see video below).
The band is Neon Neon and their (only) album is called Stainless Style. Neon Neon seems to be a one time project between Gruff Rhys (from Super Furry Animals) and a guy called Boom Bib (don’t know anything about him).
Stainless Style is loosely based on the life of auto exec John DeLorean. John was known as the force behind the Pontiac GTO, the Firebird and the DeLorean DMC-12 that was made famous by the Back to the Future movie. An article about the rise and fall of John DeLorean can be found here and his Wikipedia page here. His story is quite interesting.
Anyways, I bought Stainless Style a couple of months ago and am enjoying it very much. I’m a 80’s music fan, and Stainless Style feels like it could have had several hits during that decade.
My favorites are:
- I Told Her On Alderaan
- Dream Cars
- Michael Douglas
