I really love good music videos. This is one of the best I’ve stumbled across recently:
The idea of a world where pornography consists entirely of women in 80s exercise clothes cramming food into their mouths is so delightful to me.
The creepy afro guy is perfect. And the music is pretty decent. I might have to check out the album. It reminds me of Twin Shadow, except where Twin Shadow wanted it to be the 80s again, Grum understands that it is not the 80s, but that the sound of the 80s can be utilized effectively.
Once you’ve watched the video, go back to 2:22 and read the titles of the DVDs. The best. And the ‘amateur’ video at around 3:10 is so very creepy.
Anyway, check out that video. Good stuff.
I know of My Bloody Valentine only through a college professor I had a year or two ago. I checked out their album Loveless and I didn’t really take to it. Maybe I came to it late – Loveless came out in 1991.
But it wasn’t bad, so when I heard that My Bloody Valentine had released a new album, I figured I’d check it out. It is actually their first new album since Loveless. It’s called mbv.
You can listen to the whole thing here, by which I mean YouTube, because it’s all up as a playlist on YouTube.
The Knife is coming out with a new album – hooray! If this song is any indication, it will be weird and good. If the video is any indication….well, I can’t imagine what this video would be an indication of. Check it out:
The Knife’s new album, ‘Shaking the Habitual’, comes out on April 8. You can pre-order it here (if you cannot wait for madness to find you and must instead seek it out).
So I’ve been playing Terraria.
Like, a lot of Terraria.
Too much, really.
Knowing nothing about this book, I dove into it expecting nothing.
What I got out of it was confusing, but ultimately just a reflection of my own beliefs.
I love that Crystal Castles calls every album they have ‘Crystal Castles’.
This is a 2012 album that I forgot to review. In short, I liked it.
Here, read this poem.
It has a perfect ending.
I don’t even know what is going on here but it makes me laugh.
The video says it the best: “That was the wackest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
