Flying Lotus

My friend David Lang just returned home after snapping photos on tour with Flying Lotus, and he kindly invited me and Harrison (defgrip) to the Vancouver show! So while he snapped his shutter, we enjoyed the music. Here are some shots from the tour!

    One of the most amazing nights(the Victoria show) I’ve had in awhile! The info session was a nice lead up to the concert and let me get a couple questions answered. Now we just need to get Gas Lamp Killer up in the Northwest!

    I saw him in Toronto, at Tattoo, and that night was game changing. It will take a lot to blow me away like that again. His set was totally on lock… Lets get Brainfeeder to TO.

      yea he’s a bit ahead of the curve would love to hear him score a feature film

  • Dom

    A feature film would be tight. You almost have to create the film around the music though. I forgot last time to say that David’s shots are tasty as well.

    Great shots David. The Victoria show was awesome (thanks for getting us in David), but I thought the info session was a bit weak: he spent a bunch of time talking about how your process isn’t important, it’s your inspiration, but then he refused to answer some guy’s question on his process. Still very interesting…

    2 yrs later, I just catch this post now. David is a monster. So’s FlyLo. Glad to see my little idea had profound impact across the country. That tour was memorable.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.
