Bollywood

I want to hate this video… I really do.  But I don’t. 

Folk rocker Devendra Banhart casted his girlfriend Natalie Portman in the music video for his new single, “Carmensita.”  The video is Bollywood-esque with silly special effects and cheeky subtitles.  Prince of Hraminah (a.k.a. Devendra) must save Princess Carminsita Saplingita (a.k.a. Portman) with his “rebellious beard”, no less, from Lord Rajah The Malevolent (a.k.a. Jon Lovitz look-alike).

DIY #2: Digital Mix-up

Remember the good old fashioned mix-tape?  It was quite possibly the most personal gift you could give in the 80’s which is why I don’t have the heart to throw mine away even though I no longer have any way to actually play them.

Well, now there is a digital equivalent… Muxtape.  Muxtape is a new site that allows you to simply and quickly make your own digital mixtape (with its very own URL to share with anyone you want). You can create your 12 song “mixtape” by simply uploading any of your MP3s from you computer to the site, which then puts them in a playlist that you can reorganize and edit as you please. The songs can then be streamed by anyone visiting your muxtape site.

Make Some Noise

In the mood to make some noise?  Well, here’s your chance.  The beatbox dog lets you scratch your way to musical bliss and then email it off to your friends for a virtual dj face-off. 

Please note:  this dog’s neck might just qualify as “adult content”… yikes!

ATE – II

My second installment of All Things English…

I bring you Estelle.  For those of you hip cats that already know of her, bravo!  For those of you who don’t, catch up!  (And that goes for me too.)  I just learned of her a couple days ago when she was doing a radio interview for Alice in San Francisco.  She was debuting her new song American Boy due to drop in April.  The song is super catchy.  Unfortunately, the song features Kanye West… so I am sure it will get a lot of attention but I hope the attention doesn’t overshadow Estelle’s raspy voice that makes it what it is.  She sounds like an Erykad Badu with an English accent… need I say more?!!
