Cool editing job, this. Some dude created an indie film, Sundance selection-style recut trailer of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off set to some moody serious music (“A Slight Return Home” by Wood Pigeon). Take a look:
The Enterprise responds to some heavy burtation.
For the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Nissan partnered up with SI to put on a model search contest that features eights gorgeous models from around the world competing for a spot in next year’s Swimsuit Issue. This is the first time that a guaranteed spot has ever been handed out, and you get to decide who gets it. From now till March 9, you can visit SI.com/ModelSearch and cast your vote for the most deserving model.
As part of the model search campaign, Nissan released a series of Model vs. Model videos that pit the Nissan Juke against a swimsuit model. The videos are hosted by Kowalczyk, the donut-lovin’ Juke Guy. Check ‘em out:
I found this gem while checking out The Ten Coolest Kids Science Shows on Gunaxin (great post).This jam takes be back. Way back. I don’t know why there isn’t more disco music in educational television programs for kids. This jam fires me up, man!
Vinyl archaeologist and all-around badass DJ/producer RJD2 has a new side project, The Insane Warrior. His new album, We Are the Doorways has it’s own website, and you can listen to the album at Spinner.com.
The album was influenced by John Carpenter (you can feel that dark ‘n trippy Assault on Precinct 13 flavor) and Brian Eno, and it features spatial instrumentals with a heavy sci-fi-synthy horror film vibe.
RJD2 fans will appreciate the break-heavy, cinematic feel that Ramble John Krohn always brings to the table. There’s a little more moodiness to this album, but it’s another solid effort from a producer who’s not afraid to take risks and show some range.
Check out the video for The Water Wheel:
Wow, I know this is Star Wars related, but damn, over 2 million views in a day? That’s pretty insane:
It’s Friday! Why not enjoy some random Boney M vids? If you need some inspiration to get you through this final day of the week, check out Bobby Farrell’s dance moves in these videos. The guy passed away last month, but damn, he sure could move.
Boney M was the brainchild of German record producer Frank Farian. He basically got a bunch of dancers together, called ‘em a group and recorded most of the vocals himself (with the band members lip-syncing on stage while showing off their dancing skills). Farian would go on to repeat the same formula with Milli Vanilli in the late 80s/early 90s.
Anyway, the vocals may come from a dodgy German, but those dance moves are 100 percent authentic. Check it out:
