Does anybody even read these anymore? I sure hope so, because for the spooky thirteenth installment of video friday, I've got a special treat for halloween. Everything you need in a nutritious and balanaced video: Brazilian speed metal. Voodoo. And claymation.

Ebert's back and reviewing movies again! Whoo-hoo!

A note from the man himself.

Video Friday #12: "Gantz Graf", Autechre

Welcome to the weird, wild world of ambient techno music. This may be the world's least compressible video. You should watch the full-size video, which is a little better, but still suffers badly from compression.

This reminds me of a lot of PC "demos" from the early 90's. More from wikipedia..

Punk "icon" CBGB's to close. Old farts saddened.

Can someone remind me what punk rock music is all about? Because I thought that punk rock was supposed to be anti-instituion, iconoclastic music.

Video Friday 11: "Los Angeles", Frank Black

Yes, it's the triumphant return of Video Friday!

Today, Friday the 13th, is my last day at Teradyne. When I accepted the job nine and a half years ago, I remember listing to this song again and again, wondering in trepidation if I could transplant my midwestern ways to Los Angeles. I think it worked out.

Also, I wish I had a personal hovercraft.

Virus 2

I'm not sure if it lives up to the "Are U Ready For Chaos?" tagline, but it's pretty fun. Beat 44,000! (Thanks, kendrak!)

Trailer: Frank Miller's 300

This is an adaptation of a Frank Miller graphic novel, and the movie's stylized look owes a lot to that book. I can't wait. On the list of the top ten baddest-ass things ever said, "Then we will fight in the shade" is right on the top.
