Hold your Horses

Heh.  Gotta love it – this is one of the cleverest music vids I’ve seen in a while…”70 Million” by Hold your Horses, involving the band in various famous artworks – “The Death of Marat”, “The Last Supper”, “The Scream”, “The Anatomy Lesson”, “Venus” and others.  Lots of cardboard, drapery, cheekiness and outrageous sense of humour.  Dig it!

Happy Birthday Twin Peaks

20 years old.  Awesome!  Check here for an article looking at its impact on TV, as well as tributes from stars and crew.

I remember this breaking all over SABC.  Monday nights were legendary …creep upstairs, spooky theme music fills the house (Kork.E shivers in her room by nervous proxy), the episode freaks you out, turn off all lights with Killer BOB emblazoned in mind…go downstairs to room, unscrew burglar guard of window, sneak out back for a smoke near the trees…aaargh, the damn trees!  Mist lying low over the whole scene.  Fastest cigarettes I ever smoked!  Delicious mind-fuck.  Awesome!

Started rewatching the whole shebang over xmas holidays…must take up the slack and watch to the end…

Die Antwoord sign to Interscope

Quoth the raven: “this is some next-level shit”.  According to News 24, Die Antwoord ahve recently signed up with Interscope Records, and will now be label-mates with big-ass bands like Eminem, Black Eyed Peas, 50 cent, G-Unit, and U2.  Ees pretty cool, I reckon.  They deserve a shot at real fame and exposure, though it will be interesting to see where it all goes.  They also drawing some heavy fire from SA music writers etc who cry a usual “sell-out”, but man – why not?  If there is so much international interest, why not go there?  And if the rest of the world buys their image more readily than SA, then so what?

The scariest thing means that we gonna get some bone-headed fans out there who suddenly think that everyone here sounds like that, or dresses like that, and irony will go right out the window.  My money’s on them being American.  Sigh…
