You like System of a Down?  I sure do.

You like Legos?  Who doesn’t?!

Then you’re sure to enjoy System of a Lego.

Whenever I hear of celebrities trying their hands at music, I always get a bit squeamish.  I instantly hear Eddie Murphy singing “Party All the Time” and then I can’t stop myself from doing “The Carlton”.  Needless to say, I get strange looks when this happens.

On the other hand, there are some definite success stories (and I’m specifically not talking about Scarlett Johnansson covering Tom Waits).  Phantom Planet, which featured Jason Schwartzman at one time, wasn’t half bad.  Zooey Deschanel’s has enjoyed moderate indie success playing in the group She & Him.

Then there’s Dead Man’s Bones featuring Ryan Gosling of Half Nelson-fame.  Check out the track below, My Body’s a Zombie for You (recorded in conjunction with the Flea-pioneered Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir).  Apart from the content of the song, which initially enticed me to check it out, it’s good stuff!

Of course, the classic Randy Savage entrance music is “Pomp and Circumstance”, but I was always fond of his retooled ’90s theme music from his WCW (pre nWo, of course) days.

R.I.P. Macho Man.

When I heard that Harmony Korine of Kids fame was making a movie starring the South African Zef phenomenon, Die Antwoord, I was dubious.  Then I saw the film.  I’m fairly certain that Harmony Korine has a machine of some sort that records the dreams of Die Antwoord’s Ninja and Yo-landi Vi$$er and then translates them into film.  You be the judge.

Also, not suitable for work.

I’m sitting in Burlington International Airport waiting for my delayed flight.  What better time to post a new blog entry then now?  This is one of my very favorite YouTube videos:  Glenn Danzig and his books.  Glenn and I are similar in many ways.  For one, we both like to sit in front of our bookcases shirtless.  Another thing we have in common, daisies are our favorite flowers.

Short film about the making of their new album Blood Pressures.

Today belongs to the Kills.
