Disney Joy Division t-shirt?

Disney Mickey Mouse Joy Division t-shirt
Weird news of the day: Disney is actually selling a Mickey Mouse t-shirt inspired by Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” album, via their Disney Store. Are they pandering to hipster parents at the cost of their brand image? Is there a negative to associating Mickey with a band, whose name is a reference to sex slaves in concentration camps, and a lead singer who committed suicide? The shirts have all sold out.

    Intense. Definitely green-lighted by clueless higher-ups!

    They also have one modeled after Iron Maiden, with Animal on drums.

    Well this will do more damage to joy division than it will to Disney

    the merger of the two by Disney is totally kooky idea but aesthetically…I think its beautiful?!

    I think pandering to hipsters would be accurate. It’s just like every single play on words that have been done with the iconic Black Flag logo.

    forget Disney’s reputation (they have a horrible one), what about Joy Division? This trend of making a profit by commercializing old bands because they are seen as ‘edgy’, is getting annoying.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
