3 words: king of kong

1 of my fav people, @ElsworthDooby, rocked my world yesterday by sharing this via twitter:




i was sooooo entertained, impressed & intrigued by this trailer i HAD to watch it... so i did! it was a really good documentary/movie. i didn't realized billy mitchell was a douche until the end though bc i was like hypnotized by his ben stiller-ish antics, porn star-ish, 80s brat look & attitude.

don't look it up on wikipedia bc there are spoilers... just take my word for it & see it :) tank me later

new artist: cocorosie










ok not "new" but new to me! while lookin up stuffs for upcoming trip to vancouv i was looking at my hotel on a map. saw a vogue theater clicked on it & saw cocorosie was 1 of the acts that had been/will be there. the fact that they call their music "freak folk" is great, so had to investigate & me likey. (they also have an interesting family background)

cocorosie myspace. love the description from this blogger: "I love CocoRosie. Listening to their music is like falling down a rabbit hole after a couple of shots of Absinthe and skipping your way through Wonderland sipping mushroom tea as you cross paths with werewolves, unicorns, rainbow warriors and other amazing creatures on your way."

Sebastian Horsley

it's weird/funny how i don't learn about some interesting people until after they die... i suppose that's usually the case for most.

just finished watchign some videos of him, but too lazy to post so here's his wikipedia page

next best dance crew/baby

crazy!

lego makes everything better: world cup

excruciating to watch green miss, but somehow lego green makes it cute :)







sidenote: people talk crap about vuvuzelas but i appreciate the hum... mind you i'm not there in person so dunno the effect of someone playing it loud 24/7

nice video

best part of video is when they do the yoga pose i like to do. with 1 foot on other leg's thigh... it's so great to stand like that.

l'art du déplacement

loooove the way l'art du déplacement sounds! it means the art of movement... so how did i get here? was talking about bug house (a ripley's episode where a "nature lover likes slugs in his shower, ants on his woodwork and spiders in his windows") earlier today at wok. while searching for video of it on you tube to email out (it's quite a friggin visual!) i came across the following:



thought yamakasi sounded really cool (& japanese) so read the description of the video which brought me to another word i didn't know: parkour. interesting to see such a divide in sides: Parkour/David Belle - Free Running/Sébastien #whoknew? just glad i learned something today :)

tyler perry

i've NEVER seen a tyler perry play or movie & after watching an episode of house of payne i never want to... #thatisall

tortoise LOVE!

totally brightened up my day... i like to think the "helper" turtle was actually trying to fight him but he was doing it so slow he ended up pushing him over! i always like to think post "brawl" the turtle who was saved is trying to shake the "helper" to no avail :)
