Interview Magazine just posted up a terrific exchange between Spike Jonze and Nicole Holofcener. Holofcener is a writer and director, and Jonze’s latest film “Her” is his first effort as a writer and director.

It makes such a difference when the interviewer is actually knowledgeable and doesn’t ask the same boring questions. Great interview.

Arcade Fire “Afterlife” Live Music Video Directed by Spike Jonze

Arcade Fire Afterlife Live at the Youtube Awards

Spike Jonze has done it again! Breathing new life into awards shows by directing a live music video for Arcade Fire and a million other things at the recent YouTube Music Awards (that nobody watched). The slow reveal of the award show itself is perfect. Loved Greta Gerwig in Frances Ha, and she does a great job here.

Did any of you watch the award show? What did you think? It was really rocky at times but it was also kind of brilliant. From the Tyler the Creator performance to the Lena Dunham short, there was an energy to it all that Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows just don’t have. If you missed it you can watch the whole show here.

Watch “Afterlife” below! Props to the camera operator!

Best Magazine Cover of 2009

I am a bit late posting this but I wanted to mention that my pick for best magazine cover in 2009 was Geoff McFetridge’s artwork for Huck Magazine and Little White Lies. I believe this is the first time something like this has been executed by two different magazines (I could be wrong).
