Well the weekend is here, and I have an exciting few days to look forward to. (Not really.) If relaxing means partying and reading books and doing homework are like drinking and hanging out with friends, then I am going to RAGE!! Anyway, here is some random stuff for you for your weekend..
First off, I just saw a wicked cool documentary today called "March of The Penguins." It was really well done. I had no idea how cool penguins were. It follows the life of South Pole Emperor Penguins, and it's narrated by Morgan Freeman. I swear, that guy could read directions off the back of a shampoo bottle and it would sound deep.
(Click on Penguin for info!)
The illustrious Professor Nanda sent me this link to BustedTees..They got some funny shirts I would totally think of buying if I had a damn credit card...
Back in the day, the band A-HA made a video for their song "Take On Me" that kicked alot of ass...( anyone who doesn't remember it, watch it here.) This is a spoof on that by the Family Guy..
This is a really cool Ink book art gallery with many different artist works in a Flash notebook format...
Old school Blaxploitation movies are amazing. (IMHO, Black Belt Jones has some of the best characters and dialogue in cinematic history.) Equally terrific are the radio ads promoting these movies. This is a post with 28 Classic Blaxploitation radio ads in mp3 format. Click on pic below..Great for any DJ/Producer looking for samples or mix-tape interludes.. (Mantis, I'm looking at you!)
Here is a interesting collection of photos entitled "The Hyena People of Nigeria" by photographer Pieter Hugo. (Mental note: Never fight anyone from Nigeria. They are obviously very, very tough.)
This is a strange game promoting The Chemical Brother's new album "Push The Button"...(Check out "Galvanize" with Q-Tip.) Any game where I can breakdance and fight a reptilian DJ at the same time is ok in my book.
Speaking of good music, check out this awesome band some friends of mine are in from NYC..They're called Boss Tweed, and their sound is a unique blend of blues, Rockabilly and Soul..NPR's "All Thing's Considered" featured their song "Pretty Violent", and that show kicks ass, so you know these guys are doing their thing. My friend Gerard (who's also in a kick ass GNR tribute band "Mr. Brownstone") sent me their CD, and I like it alot! Coming from a certifiable music prick like me who usually hates everything, that's saying something. Click the pic and check em out!!
Check out Gigposter..This amazing site has a collection of nearly 45,000 concert posters, indexed by band and designer. Holy God I'm going to spend alot of time going through these!!! Unreal.
Here are some sweet pic generators..click on any of the pics I made below to make your own...
And finally, what weekend would be complete without some full contact Muay Thai boxing? Check this video out, it's great. Especially because at the end of the match a full on, chair-throwing riot breaks out!! Insane! Click the pic to watch.. Kiaa!!!!!!!
That's all for now, internet brethren. Happy Fin De Semana!!
