THIS IS WHY I LOVE DAFT PUNK

So Will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas (Barf) went ahead and used Daft Punks "Around the World" samples for his "I got it from my momma" track. Not only did he jump the gun and use dafts sample but apparently produced a video for it (Pretty gay). Problem with that is Daft never approved it, so when they heard the shit awful remix he put out. The daft lawyers sent out pretty letters to Will.i.am saying You will not be using it. That's why i love love daft punk! God Timberland must be running out of beats to sell the hip hip community. I feel embarrased even posting this vid. but i need everyone to see how awful things could get.



PS: If i find more info on this i will post...The Robots Rule!

ABOUT A SON (US TRAILER)

It's funny i was just having a discussion with my friend Bronques on music and what i grew up listening to. Guns and Roses came up. And i said i never owned a single GNR record to this date nor Nirvana. He was surprised, and said "what you don't like sweet child of mine" i said i play bands like gnr & nirvana at my parties but i never grew up liking those bands. (somewhere out there someone is plotting my death). I pointed out to Bronques that i was soley into The Smiths, Joy Division, Pixies etc..the discussion lead to Suede and how great their first album was. The reason i mention all this is because right after i started looking through the internet for interesting things. Ironically i came accross this movie trailer for none other then Kurt Cobain the icon of american angst rock. Point is regardless if i like the band this trailer looks great and looks to be a promising movie. Kurt narrates the movie from old footage that was never released. Check out the movie, you dont have to be a Nirvana fan.

RAG MAGAZINE


I try to be impartial when it comes to local publications and not feature one over the other. In this case i'm writing a bit on Rag Magazine. Rag is a publication strictly for music lovers and targets the local music scene. It's been around for awhile now doing it's thing minding it's business but serving as a directory of sorts for the local music scene. The magazine is one of few or the only one that you can find rehearsel spaces for your band or if you need to find other musicians to play with this is one source. It also has the other bits like concerts, band interviews, etc... I love the fact thats it's still printed in black and white kind of like a fanzine. The Nice people at Rag occasionally will feature blogs like this one and print some of it in it's publication. Rag Magazine can be picked up at a local Books & Books store or go to:

CALVIN HARRIS

So here you go Calvin you get a plug not for your music. Eventhough this song is ok and i can see myself after 5 drinks getting down on the dancefloor to it. The main reason for this post is because my friend Gabriella aka Gabby is in the video. She's the 3rd blonde that walks into the house.

AOKI X SUPRA STRAPPED SHOE

So since im posting something on Steve i decided to do an extra post on some more Steve related stuff. SUPRA the sneak company has released a Steve Aoki signature shoe called "STRAPPED" it's available now. I saw these kicks the last time i was in L.A and i thought they looked great. Steve i'm still waiting for my pair in the mail! At this point there are Aoki Headphones, Dj bags, headbands and more. Sponsors love us!!

THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE

My next post was going to be on Geoff Mcfetridge the artist. Then i came accross this video he did for The Whitest Boy "Golden Cage". It truely shows Geoff's animation in a very minimal but clever way. I think the video is great, a bit old but good nonetheless.


Above: The Whitest Boy Alive pic (yes that's Orlend Oye far right)

Berlin's The Whitest Boy Alive started as an electronic dance music project in 2003. Then it developed into a band without any programmed elements. For more info: WWW.WHITESTBOYALIVE.COM

OH KATE (REVISED)

So i had a pretty sexy pic of Kate Moss up on here, but it was removed within a day. Actually less then 24hrs. So i have reposted this image in honor or censorship and just cause i like the image.

THE VIRGINS

At this point everyone in nyc problaby hates them, since they are known for hating bands that ignite fast in nyc (the i'm too cool factor). But i don't live in NYC so who cares. The Virgins have a new sound, it rocks, it's soulful, it makes you dance! Enough said here are THE VIRGINS..

Above: The Virgins pic (Candy Love)

PS: The Virgins are still working on vids so this is the best i could do for now. No worries lots more to come as it's leaked.

SURFACE 2 AIR F/W FOOTWEAR COLLECTION

One of my favorite collections has revamped their sneaker line for F/W 07 line. Surface 2 Air new sneaks are clean and simple and are on point. For more info or other models go to: WWW.SURFACE2AIR.COM

SO ME X KANYE - GOODLIFE (NEW VID)

So Kayne West the cry baby doesn't know when to shut his mouth. But he does know when to buy real talent to direct one of his new video "GOODLIFE". I could careless about Kanye West, or his new found love for BUYING everything cool. (Daft Punk, Peter Bjorn & John, So Me) But SO ME directed this video, this man is a friend and is talented beyond belief. For those of you not familiar with SO ME, he is responsible for all the Ed Bangers art work and for the monster JUSTICE "D.A.N.C.E" hit video. SO ME also is the designer for the Revolver clothing line found in Collette Paris. Now if we could only remove Kanye & the retard T-bone, T-cup, T-pain? from the video, then we are talking. Enjoy!


Above: Kanye's -Goodlife vid by SO ME

Incase you live on a island in the middle of nowhere..Here is D.A.N.C.E vid by SO ME

Above: SO ME Revolver artwork/new collection

PS: Here is Kanye's meltdown or as i call it tantrum at the MTV 2007 VMA'S. Maybe now that SO ME is directing this vid. maybe he will win an video award. Atleast in europe that is. Watch this quick , it problaby will be taken down soon.


THE HIDEOUTS


Above: The Hideouts pic

The Hideouts are from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band was formed in July 2005 by Thomas A (vocal & guitar), Phillip S (drums) and latest Jens B (bass). The Hideouts are currently working on an self-released EP which is expected to be released end of 2007. With bands like Arcade Fire & Modest Mouse infiltrating the bloodstream of popular music a band like The Hideouts will definit. make heads turn (or ears).

MORRISSEY X 2

The last thing i ever wanted was to see MORRISSEY for the last time in a mall in Boca. Thankfully the music gods heard me. Morrissey has added additional dates to what many are calling his final tour ever or for awhile. Ironic enough the last scheduled date added is a MIAMI show at the new FILLMORE (Amazing venue). My fellow blogger beat me on posting this but then again who cares it's worth mentioning over and over again.


Nov. 2 Washington, DC - DAR Constitution Hall
Nov. 4 Greenville, SC - The Peace Center
Nov. 5 Atlanta, GA - The Tabernacle
Nov. 7 Melbourne, FL - King Center
Nov. 8 Miami, FL - The Fillmore!!!!!

HAVANA GUNS


Above: Havana Guns pic (and no they have nothing to do w/cuba thank god)

Havana Guns formed in late 2004, in East London, they released a limited 7" single on the small Cigarette Music label in Feb 2005. Distro. was limited but they received world-wide attention (U.K atleast) and got played on late-night Indie radio programmes like Rodney Bingenheimer on KROQ. Their sound has been compared to The Velvet Underground, The Supremes, The Jesus and Mary Chain and New Order. The UK music paper NME called them "..Blondie for the Libertines generation". Thanks Last FM!

QUIET CITY (TRAILER)

It's always good to see ex-Revolver resident djs blow up after they leave this city. Well most of them (the smart & talented ones atleast) I came across this movie trailer as i was researching new independant movies coming out. I clicked on this trailer to check it out, then i noticed the lead actor looked like my friend & revolver ex resident dj cris that moved to nyc a while back. Of course i had to watch the trailer several times to make sure it was cris but the credits at the end without a doubt confirmed it. I'm not going to lie i have not seen the movie, i have read good reviews though. Regardless i don't care if the movie sucks, Cris is in the movie and i would pay to see my friend acting or making he first attempts at it. Cris i'm proud of you & "you" mostly deserve anything good that comes out of this movie. To think huh?

TEENAGERSINTOKYO

Since i did a double post on artists from Japan, i'm going to do the same for Australia. Teenagersintokyo also hail from Australia their single "End it tonight" is a hit or miss on the dance floor here in Miami but the vid & band are coming out with great cover art & are currently touring for the e.p release.

Above: Teenagersintokyo pic

'There are many things to like about teenagersintokyo. They're 22 years old, visually magnetic, share an obvious quirky humour that comes from being long-time friends, and they write damn-good songs to boot -- especially considering that three years ago none of them could even play an instrument.' - NYLON Magazine

BE KIND REWIND (TRAILER)

Director Michel Gondry (The Science of Sleep/Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) has a new movie coming out "BE KIND REWIND" it could possibly be his best. Here is the trailer-out in Jan. 2008 i believe.


"Jerry (Jack Black) is a junkyard worker who attempts to sabotage a power plant he suspects of causing his headaches. But he inadvertently causes his brain to become magnetized, leading to the unintentional destruction of all the movies in his friend's (Mos Def) store. In order to keep the store's one loyal customer, an elderly lady with a tenuous grasp on reality, the pair re-create a long line of films including The Lion King, Rush Hour, Ghostbusters, When We Were Kings, Back to the Future, Driving Miss Daisy, and Robocop , putting themselves and their townspeople into it. They become the biggest stars in their neighborhood" Thanks imdb!!!!

KENJI YANOBE

Another of Japan's amazing artist is Kenji Yanobe. He has an exhibit at the Kirishima Open Air Museum in Japan.
The exhibit is called "WORLD OF TORAYAN".





From the pictures and research i found the exhibit consist of a "GIANT ROBOT" about 15+ feet tall and from what i read has moving arms, legs, head and throws flames out from its mouth. Oh it also has a huge horn attached to it's back that can be heard for miles. At this exhibit a band was invited to play inorder to show the giant robot in action. "World of Torayan" also consisted of other of Kenji's art pieces not as massive as the baby faced robot but still innovative pieces of art. CHECK OUT OTHER AMAZING PIECES BY KENJI AT: WWW.YANOBE.COM


TAKASHI MURAKAMI

Most of you know Takashi Murakami from his previous Louis Vuitton hangbag collab. The designs with all the brights flowers & colors etc..Takashi is one of Japan's greatest contemporary artist. I came accross this Japanese commercial (which seems more like a animated short story) Nonetheless, its amazing! Check it out
