Daft Punk Derezzed Video [Tron:Leagcy]

We all know it’s a given that when a new Daft Punk music video comes out we’re going to post it… but when it also happens to be another trailer for the new Tron: Legacy movie, well we’re sort of left with no choice. Enjoy the beats, the beautiful scenes and the glory that is Tron and get excited for the soundtrack and score which is meant to be done entirely by Daft Punk… siiiick.

Holy Fuck – “Red Lights” Music Video

So very little to add here. Holy Fuck is a quality duo that I caught for the first time at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC (one of the greatest live venues of all time)… and this is their latest video which, incidentally features a cat. Oh… and is the one of the most hilarious videos I’ve ever seen?

Cat + High Speed Chase + Bad Special Effects = Win.

Coachella Music Festival – Beautiful Video

This has to be the best advertisement for a music festival I’ve ever seen. Ordinarily when I think Music Festival, I think: portable toilets, rain, drugs, massive debacle. This video however, makes the whole damn thing look absolutely beautiful. The thing is shot from such an angle and speed that seems like some wonderful combination of stop-motion and claymation and the set-up of the event is breathtaking.

We are still a good six months out from next year’s Festival but keep your eye on this page for tickets and updates on the line-up.

The festival has historically brought outstanding acts from the likes of: Band of Horses, Girl Talk, Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, TRV$ DJAM, Jay-Z, DeadMau5, Passion Pit, Grizzly Bear, Temper Trap, Tiesto, XX, B.O.B., Deerhunter… and on and on and on is always a sure-bet to bring the goods in terms of big names and if this video is any indication it is also pretty much guaranteed to provide a good atmosphere. This guy may just have to start looking for flights for the 2011 edition!

Banksy Goes Hard on Simpsons Intro

For those of you Simpsons fans you’ll know that every now and again they look for new inspiration (be it in the form of guest appearances from major actors or musicians) or in the most recent case – outsourcing the introduction.

Have a look at the above video that was directed by British “anonymous” artist Banksy. It starts out lighthearted and follows the general tune of a traditional Simpsons intro but take a much darker turn towards the end.

Considering that many of the cells for the show are outsourced to South Korea you have got to wonder how the producers of the show (20th Century Fox) will feel about the intro and the creators may find themselves in a bit of hotwater over this one.

The episode, called “MoneyBart” is set to air here in the UK on the 21st of October.

Asked about the intro, Executive Producer Al Jean managed only “This is what you get when you outsource”
