This is from a "Corey" movie.
As in Haim and Feldman.
Strange how the El Rey marquee has changed and in the movie there isn't anything up... I never noticed it before today.

Now, who exactly is bringing Sexy Back?

I found this dude's picture on my friend Hisham's myspace. Who is this tattooed visionary?! (Click here to listen to Hisham's "Soft Circle" project. It's incredible mental!)

Anyway, last night Sonny brought over a grip of records - so this is advance warning: I'm about to go on a major GSL kick. (Thanks Sonny!)

In the meantime, here's some random dude doing an impressive cover of Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back":

Okay, so there's this new "social networking site" (you know, like this one?) that is pretty cool. It's called Virb.

1. It automatically feeds your flickr photos onto your profile
2. You can have 30 songs on your player instead of 4 (great for bands, no?)
3. Aesthetically it looks clean (unlike the stupid "get these free fucking smiley" ads)
4. There's cool stuff about video embedding & probably more cool shit that I don't have time to read through...

Anyway, if you're already on there, this is my profile:

If not, sign up here:

VIRB'S CUTE TAG: "Musical, photographical, videoical, everythingical.
You like stuff. Virb likes stuff. Use it to keep your all stuff in one place and you'll be surprised at how many other people like stuff, too."

Video: Battles' "Atlas"

There are no words in any human language that can contain how I feel about this band.

(But if you must imagine, watch "Splash" starring Daryl Hannah & Tom Hanks and pay attention when she tries to sample her native language. I think they're in like a Circuit City or something...)

This song is coming out on Warp Records and is going to be called "Mirrored."

*Music video for the single 'Atlas' by Battles, to be released 2nd April featuring a remix by DJ Koze on the B-side. The track is taken from their debut full-length album 'Mirrored', out 14th May. Video directed by Tim Saccenti. www.myspace.com/battlestheband
