The Simpsons Pay Tribute to Legendary Japanese Animator Hayao Miyazaki

thesimpsons-miyazaki-01 thesimpsons-miyazaki-02 thesimpsons-miyazaki-03

I haven’t watched The Simpsons in years but I might have to this Sunday. The teaser for the next episode reveals it to be a tribute to Japanese director, animator, Hayao Miyazaki. It will be an entire episode brimming with references to Studio Ghibli films.

*Edit – it was not an entire episode, it was just this sequence unfortunately.

The teaser has glimpses of My Neighbor TotoroHowl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, well, you get the idea.

I was thinking though, how cool would it have been to have Studio Ghibli actually produce the episode of The Simpsons? In their style! I guess, this is the next best thing.

R.I.P. MCA / BEST OF BEASTIE BOYS LIVE MIX

R.I.P. MCA / BEST OF BEASTIE BOYS LIVE mix
I put this mix together from some of some of my favourite live performances by Beastie Boys. I wanted to include ‘Somethings Got to Give’ specifically because MCA used to always preface it by talking about non-violence so when I think of him I think of this song.

Turn this up LOUD, and put two fingers in the air for MCA.

R.I.P.

Shad – Fresh Prince Parody!

There are very few rappers to get excited about these days. Shad is one of them. The London, Ontario native just released a hilarious video for his latest single “The Old Prince Still Lives at Home”. The video, produced by Hot Dog Garbage, is a detailed parody of the opening of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And when I say detailed, I mean it. Wow! (Hit reload if the video loaded off-center)

Great song and great video. Nas should take some notes this is how you do a low-budget video right.
