“Waits/Corbijn – Photographs 1977-2010”
This sounds great to me: “On the literary horizon is an extraordinary book entitled “Waits/Corbijn – Photographs 1977-2010” featuring an array of beautiful artistic images of Tom Waits taken by the renowned photographer Anton Corbijn. Tom Waits and Anton Corbijn are a perfect artist – artist match. Their 30-year collaboration now yields this book of portraits by Corbijn plus more than 50...

top 50 dystopian movies (or so these folks say)
ran across this on a brief break i took while watching bladerunner… hadn’t watched it in a while, and i love it, so decided to see what else folks tend to recommend. pretty great list. a couple of crappy movies in there but definitely some ones i really enjoyed, and of course some i’m going to look for. link
labelmates the harvey girls. they did a video for just about every song on their new album. boltinthenight: The Harvey Girls The Body Without Any Eyes From the album I’ve Been Watching A Lot of Horror Movies Lately Really twangy, upbeat, fun.
In China, “Free Willy” is known as “A very powerful whale runs to heaven”....– Why are titles so hard to translate? Our correspondent in Mexico goes looking for a Spanish copy of “The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo” - and is surprised by what he finds. (via theeconomist)
a video for my song “the sun always sets” off my of my last album “the roots, the leaves”. the folks that made it did an amazing job. they misheard the lyrics in the bridge, and made this crazy metal-esque video, and because of that somehow it works even better!
brainhousinggroup asked: Great music! I see you have a link of Four Tet, have you ever heard of Fridge? Also: coming to Tucson any time soon?
Circle Into Square Sessions #2: Josiah Wolf & Liz...
i recorded this with josiah and liz back in june. it was about 98 and 500% humidity. no lie. circleintosquare: A windy summer day recording of Josiah Wolf of WHY?/anticon, and Liz Hodson under the St. Louis archway. It came out pretty well considering we apparently sat down in front of a waterfront heliport, and were sitting directly on top of a subway vent. Also the bellhop at the swanky...

four tet - latenighttales
i love this album. it was a big gateway drug for me, i ended up going off and getting half the albums the tracks on it are from. the joe henderson album that track is from is great. same with the jef gilson album. it’s all pretty amazing, some of it i had already, but the ones i didn’t it was amazing to find them. i was astounded even by the mannfried mann track. unfortunately the rest...
anniehinton asked: I love your music, I'm so glad you found me so I could find you. How many instruments can you play? How many can you play well?
an old endearingly awkward video for the song ‘the wires from my broken record player’ off of my last album rusty string. by the good folks over at bystander productions. i had to sit under a pile of stuffed animals for 6+ hours. it got really itchy.
my first album when i was a kid was michael jackson’s bad… my dad dubbed it for me on tape. i can’t remember if he dubbed it from another tape, or from vinyl, but that was the deal.
you wouldn't think it but

just buckled down and finally upgraded to logic studio 9… i kept sitting down and working on new songs, to logic 8 crashing every 5 minutes or so. it was not fun, so they twisted my arm. i think apple puts death clocks into their software, a date when they start to not work right so you’ll buy the new version. but all the same, excited about 9, there’s a lot of great features in...
