Sample And Hold

Here’s something worth hunting down – Palm Pictures has started something called Directors Label, which is issuing DVDs compiling the works of groundbreaking and influential music video directors. The first three salute Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham and Michel Gondry and will be out on October 28. In addition to DVDs chock full of their work, documentaries and commentaries, they come with a 52-page book of storyboards, photos and interviews. If the names of these directors aren’t immediately familiar, there are previews of their work on the Driectors Label website. Read a review of the first three releases here. A brilliant idea.

This week, The Onion has a chat with Paul Westerberg.

I’ve been going through my CD collection picking out the ones that I would think are more sonically interesting for the purpose of sitting on my couch in the dark listening to my stereo at higher than normal sound levels. I hadn’t really realized before just how much lo-fi sorta stuff I had. Yeah, sorta lame, but it keeps me off the streets.

Bill Maher offers a rather pointed commentary on Rush Limbaugh and the ‘War On Drugs’. Bill’s blog is a good read.

Radiohead tonight.

    It’s about freakin’ time! I remember talking about Spike Jones about the time he came out with Bj√∂rk’s "It’s Oh So Quiet" video and think back on "Buddy Holly". Didn’t he also do the Breeders "Cannonball"?

    Have you see his documentary of Ice Cube’s Acting on the Three Kings DVD? I can’t see a movie with Ice Cube without the words "this bag." running through my head a zillion times.
