CFCF – “Jump Out Of The Train”

23 Aug

Image  Montreal’s CFCF (Michael Silver) usually delivers with his chilled-out, ’80’s influenced beats without being too nostalgic about synth-pop and New Wave.  “Jump Out Of The Train” is a great example.

Oh, and we included The Hood Internet’s mash-up of Ice Cube and CFCF because we’re nice.

A reminder of just how bad New York was in the 1970s and 80s – and how far it’s come.  Full gallery in the link.

The New Wave Super Friends

Artist Butcher Billy has recast our favorite superheroes as icons from the ’80s Post-Punk/New Wave movements.  They would want to save our city, but that would probably be too mainstream. Guess we’ll all perish, man.  Prints on sale at Behance.

Diet Wiegman has been transforming trash into instantly recognizable portraits by carefully arranging rubbish and manipulating light.  Since at least the early 1980s, Wiegman has shown a unique and acute mastery of familiar artistic elements such as depth and light.  Check out his website.

We’re not claiming to know anything about sports, but we do know a thing or two about douche bags.  And, lo and behold, there is a high correlation between talented college athletes and douche.  That’s why we’re interested in Grantland’s new tournament to single-out the most hated college basketball player of the past 30 years.  Appropriately, there’s a whole bracket devoted to Duke.

Carrie Fisher is Coming Back For Star Wars: Episode 7.

Although we’re not the biggest Star Wars fans (mostly because we had no idea what the movies were about), the fact that at least one original cast member is returning to the reboot of the legendary franchise is nonetheless pretty big news.  Actress Carrie Fisher who played Princess Leia during the series’ original run (but you already new that) confirmed that she’ll be returning to Episode 7, which is expected sometime in 2014.  No news on Harrison Ford or Mark Hamill – who’s looking great these days . . .
