Charles Barkely... 'nuff said.

REMEMBER! ALL MP3s ARE FOR SAMPLING PURPOSES ONLY! IF YOU WANT THE SONG THEN SUPPORT THE ARTIST BUY PURCHASING THE ALBUM OR SONG.


1st off the all, the mighty Charles Barkley is amongst us.
Let's just remember the greatness:


This commercial developed into a comic book too.



And even inspired a freeware computer game based on the aftermath:


So what's this legend doing nowadays? Push ups. And like a master might I add.


So whenever I typed "Charles Barkley" into Google Images, here is what came up.

As if Google said "... wait a second. You don't ACTUALLY want to look at Charles Barkley. You must mean Michael Jordan." Almost as good as whenever you type in "Black Man" and "Bill Cosby" comes up as a related search.

Here is some solid pop-rock.
Is It Like Today? - World Party

What do you guys think of Little Boots? I'm not the biggest fan mostly because I don't get it. It's like it tries to be pop/heavy electronic. I could listen to it if I were in a club (if I knew what a "club" was) but I don't know if I'd put it on a mixtape.
Symmetry - Little Boots
Mathematics - Little Boots

~~~~~

This is kind of funny...


Also, "How David Caruso Parks His Car"

I will watch this after I see "The Calamari Wrestler"

Edison Video Rides a Trike To Score a Remix

ALL MP3s ARE FOR SAMPLING PURPOSES ONLY. IF YOU ENJOY THE SOUNDS THEN SUPPORT THE ARTISTS BY BUYING THE TRACK OR ALBUM.


It's summer.
You know what that means...
MUSIK VIDEOS ALL SEASON LONG!
Here are some to start us off right:
I'd never seen this video. I don't fully understand it but I like it.


The sk8r is Mark Gonzales


A sweet Gorillaz vid for all you haters


~~~~~

These guys aren't popular in the least bit but boy oh boy should they be. These guys are one of the few pop/rock bands that actually lean more towards the rock side. Take a listen and enjoy.
In Such A State - Edison Glass

~~~~~

This video makes me smile.


~~~~~

Since the B-Ball finals are upon us I figured it be cool to do a segment on the NBA. This is an astoundingly profound commercial about the organization.


And courtesy of Will Crosswell




Imagine if the BEP were really club oriented. Now mash that vision with a steady orchestral vocal vision. This remix is the love child of those ideas.
Boom Boom Pow (David Guetta Remix) - Black Eyed Peas

Also - new song:
Alive - Black Eyed Peas
Thanks to Davis for showing me that one. This song freaking rules. I have a massive erection because of it.

Weekend Warriors: Dylan's Yo-Yo Hammers A Beam

REMEMBER! ALL MP3s ARE FOR SAMPLING PURPOSES ONLY! IF YOU ENJOY THE MUSIK THEN SUPPORT THE ARTIST BY BUYING THE SONG OR ALBUM!



I usually don't like covers unless they add a sense of originality to the song. This is one of the few cases where I enjoy the literal cover. Just because I like Robin Pecknold's voice though.
Ain't Me Babe (Bob Dylan Cover) - Fleet Foxes
Here is a track off of Dylan's latest album though. Not very Dylan if you ask me but we're suppose to like it... right?
Beyond Here Lies Nothing - Bob Dylan

~~~~~

I finally realize why Kanye made this song. It's all worth it now.

Lowell "The Hammer" Stanley



That's a man I want to do business with.

Uh oh... Hammer rivalry.
Jim "The Hammer" Shapiro




Which Hammer do you want?

Drink it down. Beam always goes down smooth.

And someone from the 843!

Terrifying

Carrot-Top with his shirt off. The scariest thing I've seen in years.


Two Weeks - Grizzly Bear
Two Weeks (Fred Falke Extended Remix) - Grizzly Bear

Pimpin' Animals Are Silhouettes

REMEMBER THAT THE MP3s LISTED HERE ARE FOR SAMPLING PURPOSES ONLY! IF YOU LIKE THE MUSIK THEN SUPPORT THE ARTIST BY BUYING THE ALBUM OR SONG!


This is truly amazing. Brings a new meaning to the "note book"! HA! GET IT!?! HA! No?

Noteboek from Evelien Lohbeck on Vimeo.


Well now do you get it?

~~~~~
So animals are funny:

Hilarious. Reminds me of Will Crosswell


And even funnier.


~~~~~

I don't know too much about these guys but these songs rock. I do know that.
Jesus - Page France
Chariot - Page France
That's some good eatin'!

Pimps for life:

And death.


Also this makes no sense:

Joel Meets Sonic Circus

REMEMBER THAT THE MP3s LISTED HERE ARE FOR SAMPLING PURPOSES ONLY! IF YOU LIKE THE MUSIK THEN SUPPORT THE ARTIST BY BUYING THE ALBUM OR SONG!



I'm a stiffler for remixes because most of them are either the original song with just a heavy repetitive bass added over it or too hard to make it sound original only to end up sounding over produced and shotty. This remix however is great. If you haven't heard the original song you will definitely still love it.
Blinded By The Lights (Nero Remix) - The Streets

~~~~~

By the way, Joel is going to start blogging with me whether he likes it or not. He is funnier than I am so make sure you look forward to that.


~~~~~

This really cool kid I know sent me a link to a hilarious Sonic commercial


and I decided to share my favorites with y'all.






And the best for last.


~~~~~

Just found a song I think Megan'll like:
Take These Thoughts - Chris And Thomas

Also, if you guys don't already read A Fuller Wine (might be a private blog now, I don't know) you should. Megan posted a list of her "I want to accomplish these things in the summer because it'll give me a sense of accomplishment and allow me to get things done as well" list (She just called it her Summer: To Do list). I too am posting my own list. Ideas? Thoughts?

~~~~~

Here is an unprecedented site called Scott Meets Family Circus
You see, Scott is a genius. He takes the non funny "Family Circus" and puts it into perspective (i.e. reality). It's great. Let's watch:



Fantastic.

I just heard about this:
The Hunt For Gollum
It's a 40 min legit high def film made by fans, for fans. It looks like the real deal. I cannot WAIT to watch it.


This cover makes the song sound as if John Lennon possessed The Bottiicellis and helped them make it sound good.
Here I Go Again (Whitesnake Cover) - The Botticellis

btDUBS:
What's up with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs!?
Their newest album is the opposite of good (which is "bad" for you /\/00bz). What happened?
Art Star - Yeah Yeah Yeahs = Lame Factor 8

Fever To Tell is a freaking sick album. That's what I'm sticking with.
Y Control - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

~~~~~

This may be one of the best songs AND videos of 2009.

What is the world?
What is the world coming to?
What is the latest definition of "happiness"?
What is the latest style?
Does my long hair make me look cool?
What about my "haven't shaved in 2 weeks so I guess now I'll finish growing this" mustache?


Maybe I'll just get fat off of free KFC and ObamaWaffles.

Owning Safety Is Lonely, Jackson

REMEMBER THAT THESE MP3s ARE FOR SAMPLING PURPOSES ONLY! IF YOU ENJOY THE MUSIK THEN SUPPORT THE ARTIST AND BUY THE ALBUM OR SONG VIA AMAZON/ITUNES!

Links
So this is a cool "idea" that lets you sample the voices in "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" along with the beat. It won't be successful or any more fun until you can get a pitch change but it's still cool to check out. Then again you can just listen to the original and be just as satisfied.

Here is a killer new pop/electronic song that has me wishing I could run through a field holding hands.
Sleepyhead - Passion Pit

Vids
Also, a good while ago, M83 hosted a contest for the best fan-made musik video to "We Own The Sky." Here is the winning vid. It's darn good and captures exactly what this song is about.
Congratulations


And since we're on fan-made musik videos here is one I found that should be the official:
Lonely, Lonely - Feist


~~~~~

Musik
This one is a little heavier electronically speaking but it's still kickin'. About 5/8s into the song when the real beat comes in I will be impressed if you don't all wreck your cars from the insane boogieing that will take place.
Love Kills (Buffetlibre vs. Sidechains Mix) (Freddie Mercury Cover) - Little Boots
