Coolest Michael Jackson shirt ever

Happy 51st birthday Michael!

Cop this from Their review:

Heist & Co. get in on the MJ Tribute action, with a cartoon version of the man with his iconic leather jacket on the front, and then in teenwolf mode from the "Thriller" video on the back. Printed on standard fit cotton shirts.

Three Frames

Just got put onto this awesome blog called Three Frames. They take three frames from movies and make them into an animated .gif. The result is intoxicating, kind of like a digital lenticular.

I have a special place in my heart for lenticulars, which are those ridged images printed on cards that seem to shift as you tilt them one way or the other.

It's also fun to say - try it once, out loud, right now.


No one will think you're weird, I promise.

Don't stare at these too long or, as they say in Texas, you'll have a fit.

Soul Power Trailer

It's as if Hollywood called me and asked what movie I'd like them to make.

Soul Power is a documentary about the R&B concert that accompanied the storied 1974 Ali vs. Forman boxing match in Zaire.

I mean - damn. This is also the era that James Brown was wearing that scooped out shirt and the GFOS belt. Double Damn.

Also, thsi trailer shows Bill Withers with no shirt on eating a snack. Triple Da - oh you get the point.

Take this lying down - Marvin Gaye

I mean, if you're going to sing a deep soul track, you're probably going to want to lie down. And you'll want your bass player to have dookie braids. That's the way Marvin would do it.

This clip is from the documentary "Remember Marvin Gaye" which chronicles the two years Marvin spent living and recording in Belgium (1981-1983). Ranztron and I checked the movie out at BAM a few years ago, and I remember being underwhelmed by the film itself. However, the recording sessions did stick with me and I was pleased as punch to see this clip come up on Soul Sides the other day.

Which brings me to my next question: Are music documentaries for dudes only? Amanda hates most of them and claims it's a boy thing. Early in our relationship I tried to get her to watch the making of Steely Dan's Aja, which is one of the most informative & entertaining documentaries ever made in this dude's opinion.

She hated it.

Is she right? Music & performance docs = boy's club? Hit me back in the comments.

Kind of Bloop

"Kind of Bloop" is an 8-bit tribute to the Miles Davis classic "Kind of Blue". I honestly can't tell if I love this or hate it. It sure is intriguing though.

Head over to the website and have a listen to the previews. If you dig it you can purchase the album for 5 samoleans.

Is this cool? Dorky? Corky?

Daring Fireball hipped me to this jive.
