'There is a soldier in all of us' - do you have a soldier in you ? Without wanting to drop an austin powers (mini me) line 'would you like one ?' I wanted to post this video on here as it gets at the real reason why this game is so damn good and hard to beat.
Call of Duty Black Ops follows in the footsteps of various other online shoot em ups featuring realistic military sequences and hardware and scintillating online gameplay (at least on the xbox).
It certainly deserves a mention on this site as a stylish game of its era.
This documentary shown on BBC Three iplayer @BBCiPlayer showcases the emergence of a trend of getting as much female flesh to the air in todays pop and music videos. Before this was just in Hip Hop [Nelly Videos NELLY's OFFICIAL TWITTER] and dance; remember that drill and other power tools SATISFACTION ?
Well today we have the likes of Katy Perry [follow on twitter] and its a bit cleaner somehow, but then tomorrow ?
We may be at the level whereby tv is degrading so much that Music TV is in fact more entertaining and short, and we seem to be demanding it.
These videos may not show us the whole story and this documentary tries to get into the real girls at work and the aspirational girls who are slightly delusional that they will become stars, or perhaps maybe they will.
Regaton videos and Latin America have certainly helped bring about this trend in music video (check out Calle 13 Rene Perez Joglar) and the nature of media no longer being 4 channel tv is that these videos are not being seen by your parents but they are BIG business. Certainly for me in a non sexual way Axwell's Feel the Vibe is my favourite all time Music Video go and see why.
The Audio-Technica turntable
USB port to convert vinyl LPs into digital files ($149.95) -> now thats a great feature. Check see if there is a newer model out.
Previously hosting shows like "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (2007) and "Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?" (2008), Bollywood 'badshah' Shah Rukh Khan is too small for cricket.
This is going to be one of the big tunes of the summer, the fantastic sounding and vibrant lyrics from mike snow remixed by the punks jump up remix for some pace and energy is just so perfect for this summer which seems to have come early !
First heard this from the centre of the LAPA we are falar bout Rio De Janiero , great song that mixes real well by my desired dj of choice in London and Guanabara DJ LIMAO..
This is amazing for me and never fails to rev me up. These guys have so much flexibility and skill. Its backed by one of the best tunes too.
Saw these guys from Tokyo live at Lovebox 2009. Very very good , different taking regular instruments and producing kind of elecktro rock. Very very amazing drumming for a full on 30 minutes. If they play near you these guys are well worth a look !
Ethan Hawke and Co (famous dj we are informed) sitting on the tube , Bakerloo line to be exact. How cool is that a movie star taking the tube. Serious full marks to Ethan, putting himself head and shoulders above the rest.
New Order and Joy Division were and still are are, for me a massively influential group for myself growing up in the 80's and 90's and for a whole generation pre and post emergence of the rave scene. From 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' to 'Blue Monday' (which still sound great) , you only have to look at the British music scene now to see the influence they still have - check out The Editors for a very Joy Division vibe - namely 'Munich' to Black Kids to many electro acts / dj's around for miles.
What always was great for me in purchasing a New Order (or indeed Pulp) album was the fantastically gorgeous artwork of the album sleeves that could only ever be Peter Saville design....From album covers to other Factory Records projects - you will find his mark on it. Personally I find his designs to be fresh, intelligent, polished , colourfull (mostly) and though I am sure many others would describe the postmodernist influence in his work etc etc...to me they just look amazing and he just seems to really 'get' the bands and the music he designs for.
A huge favorite electro group of mine and an admired designer - both excellent in my opinion... but find out for yourselves. Best tracks:Theives Like Us, Fine Time,Regret,Ceremony,True Faith,1963...and the list goes on..
Fantastic album. I guess i missed the moment the first time around, i was far too busy being busy. Luckily i walk to work now and charge myself up on this synthony. If ever an album allowed a man to say "hey this is what i can do.shut up and listen' then Perfecto Fluoro is that album.So...Shut up and ...
