In Rainbows From the Basement

Recently Radiohead got together in producer Nigel Godrich’s studio to perform their most recent album, In Rainbows, for VH1. View the performance here. I haven’t actually seen it because VH1 has decided to shutout Canadians from viewing any of their content online. THANK YOU VH1.

Despite VH1’s best efforts I have managed to get the entire thing in mp3 for you all, and considering the fact that Radiohead is one of the ugliest bands EVER this might be the best way to experience their performance anyways. I think it’s a lot easier to take a band seriously when everyone in it is ugly, I mean they definitely weren’t put together to market anything – they are too ugly remember! Oh to have the skills of an ugly person who remains in the spotlight for any extended period of time! Anyways…

Download the full performance in all its glory (I like it better than the actual album) after the jump!

Boom! Enjoy.

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
