Kiwi vodka company 42Below arranged 42 of the world's "best" directors and ordered them to make 42 second shorts. A lot of them are seriously uninspired - like trailers for Photoshop 0.63 made by deviantART users, (Ouch.) but thankfully David Lynch and Harmony Korine are on hand with their snappy efforts. Larry Clark did one too but i cudn faand it.

I like Korine's loads - it's like a baby (lol) -sized partner piece to his latest, Trash Humpers. Lynch's, as a witty youtube commenter suggested, is more Monty Python than Mulholland Drive. Neither pieces are like WOAHH SHHHHIIIIIIITTT, but I love the idea that both directors have sketched on a super-small scale - like a film version of Picasso's doodles on restaurant napkins.

Oo. Strange strangers. Pocahaunted. Like Cocteau Twins in a very odd hospital coridoor. DISREGARD THAT, I SUCK COCKS. More like a ghostly boner. Meant to write about these for ages but i dun it now. Falling in love's pretty easy.

weird era /blondes

Manchester's Weird Era are communicating something to me as I eat my kimchi noodles and look out at the midlands-y rain. Recalling Mr. That Ghost in terms of production, but with a Moose-y quality, it's the kind of stuff that makes me go 'oh yeah, that's good.' I'm trying to avoid giving any disparate references today - don't you hate it when music bloggers do that? Like "it sounds like if an early City Warfare covered Sang Sang Sang in the early 1600's under a marquee". I fuckin' hate music bloggers.

Weird Era - Ghost

Woah, a titty! I wonder if this gal minds being published on blogs. BLONDESSS are a trance-ridden little hypnotiser band of disco drapery. They take me elsewhere with they beats. Delicately measured minimalism ensures a good night's sex.
