Time & Eric’s new ad for General Electric’s connected smart bulb, starring Jeff Goldblum

God creates Man. Man creates advertising. Man satires advertising. Satirical advertising becomes real advertising … woman inherits the earth?

Haha, I really dig this CH2 “Moonwatch” video by Greg Stees.

Tiny Detectives with Kate Mara and Ellen Page

The internet was unhappy with the casting of ‘True Detective’ season 2, so the creators have started from scratch with an entirely new show.

'Release from the Centre of Your Heart' by Laetitia Sadier

'6 Of Swords' by Puro Instinct


The complete ride-thru of Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean.  This is from the 50th Anniversary “A Musical History of Disneyland”.  The audio in the “evil curses” section is a bit echoey in this mix, but it includes the original “Lust” audio sequence in the town looting, rather than “Gluttony” or the new Jack Sparrow sequence.

'Next of Kin' by Alvvays

"Next of Kin" may be classifiably twee, but its beachy, seafoam sound belies a much darker lyrical underbelly. It may be the catchiest surf-pop song ever written that’s actually about drowning.

In fragments and flickers—a stolen look, a hand slipped out of reach, a sudden yet deafening silence—singer Molly Rankin pieces together an allusive portrait of human loss, one which may be marked by drug use (“You took something before you went in the shower / To help suppress the things that make you feel uptight”).

The ambiguity provides an unsettling counterbalance to the track’s toe-tapping jangle, but the irresistibly bright hooks save us from being similarly drowned in weighty subject matter. It’s a mix of sunny fatalism that places the band in the forlorn company of Camera Obscura and Morrissey.

Just try not to get too carried away when singing along to: “No color to his skin / inform the next of kin.”


Jason Eisener (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN) loved THE GUEST so much that he cut this awesome fan-trailer for the film.

Jason Eisener continues his great run of fan-made trailers that are pieces unto themselves. If anyone knows how to cut together a scintillating sizzle reel, it’s Eisener: Hobo With a Shotgun was funded solely off a contest-winning fake trailer he made in 2007.

'New York' by PyPy

Armed with the grimey, guttural riffs of DNA and Romeo Void, Canada’s PyPy evidently owe a lot to New York’s late ’70s No Wave and New Wave scenes.

In their latest video, the band try to recapture some of that pre-Giuliani magic by wreaking havoc on the streets of a fictitious New York (Montreal in graffiti drag), partaking in stereotypical Serpico-era activities, like loitering, eating pizza and picking up hookers.

They ultimately find a kindred spirit in Sesame Street’s own Oscar The Grouch, and what else can that lead to but a moment of pure, heavenly trashcendence?

PyPy’s debut album Pagan Day is available on Bandcamp.

The Space Lady’s Greatest Hits by The Space Lady

Booo. The Space Lady is currently on a European tour and it doesn’t include a London date. All the sad faces.

'After Dawn' by Itasca

From Itasca’s new album, Unmoored By The Wind, out on Matt Mondanile’s New Images label on October 14th.

Code may flirt with illegibility, but it must finally cohere logically or it will not work; the language of art can fracture grammar and syntax, can fail to transmit meaning but still cause emotion, and therefore successfully produce rasa.
