whatchoo doin for the old lady on mom-christmas?

fun fact from the wikipedia: "The holiday eventually became so commercialized that many, including its founder, Anna Jarvis, considered it a "Hallmark Holiday", i.e. one with an overwhelming commercial purpose. Anna eventually ended up opposing the holiday she had helped to create."

This Strange Findings live stuff looks phucking phenomenal! Like the Found Footage Fest and Everything Is Terrible, but chopped up all stylish-like!

Do it To it Volume III preview by Mike 2600

I'm bummed that this isn't getting a vinyl release like previous volumes, but I freely admit that I'm part of a dwindling number of dudes who give a shit about DJing actual physical records.

Regardless of my record nerd crustiness, the addition of cool stickers from the Burlesque of North America designer dudes, and the nice price of 7 bucks puts this in your hands if it's your deal.

the grossly-sexy awesomeness of the above video is your entry to picklesdickles validation, but this grum dude goes something like 8 steps farther than that and breaks us off a piece of the DOCTOR DETROIT pie.


Steve Reich ont the South Bank Show

by Chris

Just spottified this really great documentary series about Steve Reich. That's all really. Sorry the blog's gotte kinda run down recently. I have a bazillion things happening right now, as well as a bazillion things I keep meaning to post but don't get around to. Anyway, this is part one of a series, so follow it up if the first one is interesting.

ALSO, if you dig this, the 5 disc Nonesuch Boxset is stupid cheap over at amazon and everything on it is straight up SUPERB. PULL THE TRIGGER!

Band of the Lost Star Wars Mix!

Thursday, April 8, 2010 by Chris

man oh man, it's been a long time coming, but indeed, that day is here. back at the beginning of this nonsensical and increasingly neglected blog, i had intended on showcasing some of the musical oddities that have fond their way to me in recent years. somewhere along the line, happily, our posts started to veer so very far into the star wars nerdery. now, i am pleased to align those two ideals and present a mix i picked up randomly from turntablelab and have just now gotten my hands back on.

I'm not sure if Band of the Lost are toy weirdos who moonlight as DJs or DJs who promote themselves with bootleg toys, but regardless, this mix in three parts is coming back around just in time to feel synchronous with the release of the new Attack of the Clones review that's been on and off and then back on youtube.

ゴッド・スピード・ユー! BLACK EMPEROR

by Chris

“..God Speed You! Black Emperor is a 1976 Japanese black-and-white 16 mm documentary film, 90 minutes long, by director Mitsuo Yanagimachi, which follows the exploits of a Japanese biker gang, the Black Emperors. 1970s Japan saw the rise of biker gangs, known as BÅ sÅ zoku, which drew the interest of the media. The movie follows a member of the bike gang and his interaction with his parents, after he gets in trouble with the police. The orchestral post-rock band Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s name is derived from the film’s title..”

extra special thanks to HAMBURGER EYES for pointing this out for me. Hope today stays as good as it's starting out, but honestly, this could be the peak and i'd be a happy man.

great lil sex pistols doc

by Chris

why does this make me so wistful for the spring of 2002? something about the cigarettes and the grime maybe? such a particular thing to have on my mind right now. regardless, this is one of the reasons that the internet is AWESOME, and a not so gentle reminder that there's still tons of stuff out there that is just waiting to be unearthed and shared by all.

the water monster is right, cat-man

by Chris

"the best disguise is old n ugly unless you are already old n ugly then you just act british."

i'll bet cute 20-something baristas get told stories like this ALL THE TIME! even the semi-cute ones! has no one written a book about this yet? i'd write it myself, but i think the stink of in-authenticity would be lingering a bit too prominently.

it's friday! and i'm not dead!

Friday, March 26, 2010 by Chris

been a second since i posted anything on here. i just started doing the twitter thing for the 7th time and it's finally actually consumed my life, which seems to be the point of maintaining a twitter acct.

holler at me over at @PicklesDickles. know though that this is just me, and not Zita, so feel free to shoot any/all crazy-awesome super-duper-fashion stuff or anything pertaining to RuPaul's DragRace my way, but don't expect anything in return.

here's some videos! i'm gonna get back on the bloggg horse hopefully over the weekend and dump a bunch of awesome in your face, but for now, rest easy in knowing that there is something to look forward to next monday.

everything about this poster makes me simultaneously giddy and confused. seriously, read all the copy on this poster and seriously try and make sense of it. "kids the pants off TV!?!?!?" WTF does that mean?

sadly, wrong side of the art doesn't have a copy of the not tonight henry poster up :(



i have no clue what's up with rst video having an amazing american name (straight outta jersey, people!) and at the same time being written mostly in some foreign language or other.
