Strange day out here at Windswept Fields

Richie Tennebaum

Perhaps the best fake magazine cover in the history of cinema

Who knew the Baumer suffered his meltdown in 1994? One of saddest days in fictional sports.

The Royal Tenenbaums is now out on an awesome Criterion Collection Blu-Ray. A must own.

Joy Formidable blows my mind

(NOTE: This is a cross post/sample from my new group music tumblr – MUSICWAR! Check it out:

The Joy Formidable: “Whirring (Live on KEXP)”

I was fortunate enough to get a few hall passes and enjoy a week of live music as the recent MusicFestNWseeing Eleanor Freidberger, The Kills, Archers of Loaf, Explosions in the Sky, Antlers, and this band, The Joy Formidable who I was looking forward to seeing as they are quite decent.

After seeing them live though, the positively blew my mind, which is why I am posting them live performing an epic shoegaze/feedback drenched version of their usually much-milder-but-still-great “Whirring”. Absolutely impressed with them live and highly recommended. (Witz)
