Just headed over to Youtube to watch the video for Stylo, the new Gorillaz single. For some reason they’ve disabled embedding so here’s a still and yes, that is Bruce Willis. Best musical project he’s worked on since Return of The Bruno.
As far as I was aware he’s been in and out of prison for the last decade or so so I’m glad he’s got it together to release some new material.
Just read this article The 101 Best Music Videos of the Decade which has the videos for some great work. No surprise there’s a bag full of Michel Gondry videos, including the winning entry ‘Fell In Love With A Girl’ for the White Stripes, although I was quite surprised that the video for Around the World by Daft Park doesn’t make the list.
So rare I even see music videos these days apart from on YouTube perhaps, was just trying to remember when I last saw a music video on the TV and I honestly cannot remember. Oh no, hang on, it was a clip of a Katherine Jenkins video which is a cover of some shite Evanescence song and it was a total load of bollocks, the song and the video.
I can’t even believe I just made the effort to find it on YouTube.
It’s Friday afternoon and I’m in a rockin’ kind of mood, I think I want this played at my funeral. Can’t believe it’s over 20 years ago since the first Pixies album came out.
Art & Copy is a new film by Doug Pray, director of, amongst other films, Scratch.
ART & COPY is a powerful new film about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray (SURFWISE, SCRATCH, HYPE!), it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time — people who’ve profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry.
Just headed over to the Thrasher website and saw they have a new video player. No bad thing, I used to hate the Quick Time movies they had, so slow. This is some RAD footage of Christian Hosoi, that benihana! Holmes.
There’s also an Hosoi interview on the Fuel.tv website.
This is a moment most skaters have been through, that first drop in, a right of passage. Clearly it’s the easiest trick in the world, other than pushing along or riding off a curb perhaps, but it doesn’t feel like it when you’re up there looking down that first time. Put the tail on the coping with your back foot on it, move your front foot onto the board around the front truck bolts, move your weight forward and roll down the tranny. Easy!
Damn, I feel sorry for the little fella. It’s pure psych when it comes off, and then, once you’ve made it, it’s almost impossible to bail it ever again. It’s all about that first time though. He’s definitely got his front foot too far forward there.
I think I made my first drop-ins at all heights thankfully.
