I want this to be me in 5-7 years. But, with more hair.
Thanks to Sean & Matt for this one.
A special lady-friend of mine came to visit me in Arizona this weekend, and we went to Sedona, Arizona on Saturday, November 19, and then to the Grand Canyon on Sunday, November 20.
And people claim that God created this.
He wouldn’t have had time.

What’s with all this Brooklyn music!?!!?
Sleigh Bells (which is a pretty weird name for a band that makes music like this) is from Brooklyn, and they’re classified as “Noise-Pop” by their Wikipedia article, which is sort of appropriate. The vocalist, Alexis Krauss, used to be some kind of a model too, and she’s still pretty damn hot.
This is an Anthem, so rock it hard.
Here’s a different song, just to see what they’re like in motion:
YES! Finally! I just finished the book trilogy about 2 weeks ago, and it’s pretty great. Brutal as hell, too. It does not end well for many of these people. Anyways, I really like the look and feel of this trailer. I think they’ve nailed the tone, and I love the actors.
I’m so pumped for this.
Seeing that it’s 11/11/11, I should probably post something about it being Veterans Day, or even Nigel Tunfel Day, right? Wrong. Today is Birdy Day.
Birdy, otherwise known as Jasmine Van den Bogarde, is a 15-year-old (yes, 15) British songbird who was originally discovered when she won the Open Mic UK competition when she was 12. What the hell were YOU doing when you were 12?
Anyways, her first album is now out, and it’s filled with cover songs by original artists like The National, Phoenix, The XX, and of course, Bon Iver. I tried to buy the whole album last night from iTunes, but it’s only on sale in the UK Store right now. Psh.
Prepare to have your mind ripped in half. It may have been the red wine, but the first time I heard this, I almost cried.
WELL WELL WELL…
Not too bad, if I must say. Pretty cool tone, legitimately foreboding. Kristen Stewart has never done anything of any real gravity, but maybe this is the film that changes all that? Being surrounded by Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron as the (truly) Evil Queen and Chris “Thor” Hemsworth might help her shine a little bit. I kind of dig this a lot, and now i’m anxiously awaiting its release.
And, I’m pretty sure this is going to make about 1 Gogillion dollars at the box office.
When I posted it, it had 326 views on Youtube. How many does it have now?
Go ahead and throw this one on the Fullscreen.
You may notice that it’s a lil blurry in this embed, but if you click on the “HD” button in the embedded player, you can watch it in full-fledged HD crispness on Vimeo. It’s rather gorgeous at times.
Shot on a Nikon D3100 in NYC, October 28th, 29th, and 30th of 2011. We stayed at the DoubleTree Times Square on the 28th and the Millennium Hilton on the 29th. Thanks to Nevin, Clay, Frank, Alicia, and Jay (Sean).
