Video! Matt Damon’s iPad

This is some good overdubbing right here. These guys have taken the iPad/iPod Boston joke and incorporated it into this overdubbed video from Good Will Hunting.

Matt Damon’s got an iPad.

Saw it at DoobyBrain

Video! Lauryn Hill & Julian Marley – "Turn Your Lights Down Low" (Live)

A video of this performance has been going around on the blogs, but it’s cut off at under two minutes. Here’s the full performance by Lauryn Hill and Bob’s son Julian Marley doing “Lights Down Low” at RaggaMuffin 2010 in Australia. Looks like Julian inherited some of his father’s dance moves.

Miss America 2010


I know this doesn’t belong on a music blog, but I invested two hours of my time watching this fuckery so I feel like I need to use it for something. Above is the 2010 Miss America, the representative from VA.

I don’t know why I watched this. I feel like there’s something naturally shallow about me that enjoys judging a bunch of women based solely on their looks, because admit it, their personalities don’t really shine while they robotically answer questions about global warming, sing opera (I swear there must be 10 women in America who sing opera and they were all contenders), and strut around in bikinis. I was disappointed because early in the battle for the crown I became very strongly attached to Miss Oregon. Check her out below.

Big Sean – "Supa Dupa Lemonade"


I saw some people talking about this in the shoutbox and the high quality version just came out so I decided to throw it up. Big Sean definitely sounds nice over this “Lemonade” beat. He’s got the kind of voice and character that shines, but I have a couple reservations about him.

He says a lot of the same stuff that everyone else says. You know, talking about his “retarded” flow, talking about “brain” simultaneously in terms of education and getting your dick sucked, and doing that thing Drake made popular lately by saying a phrase and then finishing it with a one word punchline. Example: “Swimmin’ in the money, come and find me…Nemo”.

Again, he sounds pretty nice doing it, so I’m not complaining. There are always new trends in music and I don’t think there is anything wrong with incorporating what’s hot right now into your music, but that can’t be your only trick. I like to see at least one thing that makes an artist unique in some way, and I haven’t seen that in Big Sean yet. Not saying it’s not there, but I haven’t seen it yet.

Sidenote: I really liked the chorus in Gucci’s version of this song. If he would’ve left that in there this would have made it to my iTunes.

New! Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – "Beat the Devil’s Tattoo"


This is the title song off Black Rebel Motorcycle Club‘s upcoming album, out March 9th. It’s a loud, stomping, rootsy rocker reminiscent of early White Stripes. The song is inspired by Edgar Allen Poe

The sound of Beat The Devil’s Tattoo comes from everywhere and nowhere- it draws a map and embarks on a sonic road trip through American music; from howling front porch stomps on the Chattanooga and beer-sloshing Texas roadhouse rockouts, to swaggering proto-punk sneering in NYC’s basement bars.

Like the title of the album, a phrase gleaned from Edgar Allen Poe’s 1839 short story, “The Devil In The Belfry,” BRMC stands on the edge of darkness, but never dives in.

Video! Worst Movie of 2010 (Trailer)

2010 is just an infant, but Big Money Rustlas starring the Insane Clown Posse is already looking like a very strong contender for worst movie of the year. There are movies that are bad and no fun to watch. Then there are movies that are so bad that they are actually entertaining (I’m a big fan of The Pacifier starring Vin Diesel). And then, sometimes only once or twice a decade, there are movies so bad that they can induce physical sickness and make you feel disgusting for wasting your time watching them. This trailer just did that to me, and it was under 3 minutes.

New! Erykah Badu ft. Lil Wayne – "Jump Up in the Air (Stay There)"


Yes. I’ve been waiting for this. Erykah Badu just let loose the first version of this song. There will be 9 more versions coming with different guest spots on each one. Number one features (who else?) Lil Wayne. It’s going to be fun to see who else gets selected for the spots and who shines. New Amerykah pt.2: Return of the Ankh is set to drop March 30th.
