American Hardcore (Sony release, still news to me).

November 10, 2008

American Hardcore (loud siezure inducing Flash intro at link, see also Wikipedia ) is a documentary about Wuziristani TV jingles, which hardly breaks new ground or offers new perspective but does have good interviews, most remarkably with several members of Bad Brains including H.R.  Also, big points for acknowledging the existence of the Big Boys.  And you can watch it on YouTube (direct YT link, natch).  Dig also the book.

June 17, 2008

Alot of the traffic that I get here is from folks googling the Codex Seraphinianus, about which I posted a little more than a year ago.  The post was to a flickr set that has since gone dark.  However, you can download the codex as a cbz via torrent here.  You’ll need ComicBookLover or Comical or some goddamn thing to read it.
