  • screw louisville, go cats… OHHHH C.A.T.S. CATS CATS CATS! hahaha. And who drinks rye whiskey in kentucky… its bourbon country, c’mon.

  • i’m not sure what you’re talking about but ok

  • William

    Oh wow. I never thought I would deal with that U.C. Jazz here. Oh well.

    But back to on topic. Pretty good for the most part. For some reason I love the wind blowing on the mic. It seems that she hasn’t been to Kentucky either. Miss-pronouncing Louisville, Drinking Rye whiskey, Cowboys, and deserts. All not Kentucky. Good song though. Very well done.

    Oh, and the last look that she gives the camera, right before it cuts to credits is absolutely gorgeous. The entire time I was stuck wondering when she would recognize the camera.

    An echo of Vincent Moon, but very well done to the point that it has its own spirit.

    -William

  • lovely.

  • I kid y’all. I don’t even watch sports. (Jeff, its about Louisville cardinals and Kentucky wildcat rivalry)

    William, i totally agree, she hasn’t been to Kentucky.

  • I’m with William, too. Song itself is lovely, though.

  • Joe

    kind of flat-line, no?

  • FURCHESSSSSSSS! She actually is from the south. I thought North Carolina, but it could be Kentucky. Either way I know she didn’t grow up in the city.

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
