Lollapalooza 2010 Lineup?

I found out via Stereogum that the Lollapalooza line-up has been revealed in a wheel-of-fortune matter.
Nobody really knows who the fuck is playing, but people in the comments have been guessing some pretty kick ass guesses, revealing that this years Lolla lineup might be fuckin retarded. Like best of the year retarded. The lords have spoken. They believe the list to consist of:

Arcade Fire
Lady Gaga
MGMT (mgmt)
Hot Chip
The National
The New Pornographers
Fuck Buttons
Blitzen Trapper
The Dodos
The Black Keys
Cut Copy
The XX
Passion Pit
The Big Pink
Vampire Weekend
Wolfgang Gartner

Remember these are all educated guesses, except for the STROKES for sure. Also DIRTY PROJECTORS for sure.

On a serious note...

The fact that I'm asian and Daria is gay, I think we should all take a second to get serious and look into some issues in today's world. George Takei is a great representative of making right decisions.

Rape Flight

I couldn't find any videos of true "rape flight". This is close, however. And just as entertaining.

Also, hey did you notice? It's the Daily Dab for the new millenium. Tell me what sucks about it

BBC Strikes again

A GMoD(Great Man of Dab) appears on a British late night show and really nails this one. This could be one of the funniest things I've ever had the good fortune of seeing. I'm guessing this late night host is the English Conan.

This makes me once again wonder, why isn't the BBC standard in all current and former British colonies? Basically BBC should be free here too.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

This is the trailer for Edgar Wrights upcoming adaptation of the Canadian comic book Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It looks pretty sweet. Edgar Wright is the guy who directed Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. I know some of you don't believe me when i say that those are both fucking awesome movies. Those are both fucking awesome movies. Hot Fuzz is a fuckin masterpiece. fucking fuck. fuckity. Get that shit watched already.

Wing Chun guy cries at the M-1 tryouts

Here's the link cause i cant embed this.

What a complete bitch.

That Max Rich guy looks like he could suck a golf ball through a garden hose also.

Kivo, by the way, looks like he's a difficult dump away from a heart attack. Dude's at least 90.

My favorite parts?

"I've been a martial artist for many lifetimes!"

I seriously had to pause and wait till I stopped laughing at that point.

I'm a wing chun man and I will DIE A WING CHUN MAN MAN

that is all kthxbai

Another piece of paraphernalia perished

This morning at approximately 12:25 Am our dear elephant friend A.O.S ( Athabascan Oil Sands) passed in some sort of drunken heated battle AOS was knocked off a coffee table and could not be salvaged. His remains will be returned to his home land (behind the brier) for a proper burial. no dates have been confirmed.
Let us all hold internet hands and make an elephant noise, the kind where you put your lower lip over your top lip and blow.

All that remains...

RIP AOS. have fun in pipe heaven

Internet Music Review / Gorillaz - Plastic Beach

I have been assigned the great undertaking of reviewing this album. It contains sixteen tracks of music. It gots people like Snoop Dog, and Mos Def, and Gruff Rhys, and Lou Reed, and The Lebanese National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music. And other people.
I've been a pretty big Damon Albarn fan for awhile. I love the other two Gorillaz albums, and I love The Good, the Bad, and the Queen, and i think i like that last Blur album they did.
This album initially started as some project called Carousel, and then became some other project that was still going to be Gorillaz that Damon Albarn apparently recorded something like 70 tracks for, and then became this. After i found that out (right now), the result seems a bit underwhelming when it seems like it's been worked on for forever.

On the first listen, almost the whole album didn't catch my fancy. The only part i wanted to listen to was the orchestral intro that breaks into a sweet Snoop Dogg throwdown. But, since i told myself i would write this thing, i've listened to it probably like seven times already. It's totally grown on me. It was too electronic and soulless and empty to me to start. It's a very electronic, guest starry, hollow take on what the Gorillaz were in Demon Days. I fucking love Demon Days. If you havn't listened to that album yet in your lifetime get on it. Demon Days took some of the best parts of all kinds of music and squashed it together. This takes that crazy instrumentation with live instruments and replaces it with drum machines and dance hooks. And it's sweet, once you get it.

The part that sold me the most, upon further listens was the underlying theme, or the plot of the thing. The cool thing about Gorillaz is that Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewitt created this animated band that they could use to tell stories with and create weird cryptic themes with, that run through entire albums. From the start you hear waves and seagulls and things that puts you in a cinematic mindspace, then runs you through this adventure of the Gorillaz on a giant plastic beach island resort built with garbage
. Even though it sounds long winded, it works because each song is self contained. It's poppy, but there's more meaning to it. Or something.

The plastic beach thing is freaky. Apparently there are loads of beaches and landfills made entirely out of garbage, but the surrounding environment has created a habitat out if it. The idea behind the album seems to be that even though we think the world is fucked environmentally, we can go beyond that now, knowing what fucks up the world, and being mindful of it. Meanwhile still enjoying life on Earth, despite it being a garbage hole.
I totally figured that out on my own, even before i read this quote from Albarn:

"They've got more snakes... like adders, grass snakes, slow worms, toads, frogs, newts, all kinds of rodents, all kinds of squirrels, a massive amount of squirrels, a massive amount of foxes, and obviously, seagulls. [...] This is part of the new ecology. And for the first time I saw the world in a new way. I've always felt, I'm trying to get across on this new record, the idea that plastic, we see it as being against nature but it's come out of nature. We didn't create plastic, nature created plastic. And just seeing the snakes like living in the warmth of decomposing plastic bags. They like it. It was a strange kind of optimism that I felt... but trying to get that into pop music is a challenge, anyway. But important."

And that's how awesome i am.
And i give the album 1000 rupees / 7 crayons.

boom done
