This video of a pirate Max Headroom TV interruption STILL freaks me out. It freaked me out as a kid and it still freaks me out, but now I love it.
The weekend is about to start so what better way to get the party started than with some old skool tunes from Bel Biv Devoe. I’m going to DJ tonight at Three Aces and tomorrow at PANIC!. This sounds like good enough music to push me out the door from work if you ask me. Bel Biv Devoe were on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon earlier this week and this happened:
The far too short first season of Titan Maximum is out on DVD. I really hope the second season comes soon. This is the first 2 minutes of the series.
There’s seriously a lot to like about this show. The animation is well done, the writing is hilarious and crude, and it’s got awesome references (Voltron, anime, etc..). I hope the Robot Chicken crew get time and budget to make more seasons.
There’s a 43 day countdown on Garrard McClendon’s web site. I can’t wait to see what he’s up to next. Till then, let’s watch his demo reel/greatest hits from CLTV:
Martin Scorsese directed this great commercial for Chanel seen on TrendLand. Big surprise to hear the Rolling Stones, but I’d really love to see the rest of the 16mm film that was shot on the Bolex camera.
Since Thursday night is the unofficial start of the weekend and I’m in actually in a good mood, here are a few words of inspiration from Simon de Pury and the cast of Work of Art.
I’ll never think of a Renoir painting the same way again. Thanks for that mental image Simon. But I’ll always be bold, creative, and inspired thanks to you.
Art critic Jerry Saltz has an article on New York Magazine’s web site, which you can read here about his thoughts on Bravo’s Work of Art TV show. He’s also got really good recaps of all the episodes up on the site. I really liked the show, despite its short season and I’m glad with how it ended. I’m hoping for a 2nd season, and I hope it comes soon. We need better shows on TV.
Mediaweek put together this interesting video with interviews and clips from the show.
If only this stuff existed. My coworkers and I would buy it by the case!
Here’s a widget I found on Facebook for Anthony Bourdain: No Reservation. Being home from work recovering from surgery for 5 weeks this winter, I watched this show religiously and what felt like weekly marathons during the day. I also got into Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, but that’s another blog. For now, check out Mr. Bourdain’s widget and click on stuff. Go out and eat different food too. Explore ethnic neighborhoods. You won’t be disappointed.
Thanks to iChat aka AIM and the lovely folks over at Prymal, I bring you The Coffee Explosion.
Watching that video I was reminded of Alexi Wasser, the lovely lady over at IMBOYCRAZY who we know from this lovely York peppermint pattie commercial. This post was brought to you by the word “lovely” and iTunes background music by The Prairie Cartel.
