Gaga as a dude - Vogue Homme (Japan)

About time. Can't say I'm too crazy about it, but I still love her with all of my heart.

Animal Collective - "Fireworks"


Animal Collective - Fireworks by changed-name

Now it's day and I've been trying to get that taste off my tongue
I was dreaming of just you, now our cereal, it is warm
Attractive day in the rubble of the night from before
Now I can't walk in a vacuum, I feel ugly, feel my pores
It's the trees of this day that I do battle with for the light
Then I start to feel tragic, people greet me, I'm polite
"What's the day?"
"What's you doing?"
"How's your mood?"
"How's that song?"
Man, it passes right by me, it's behind me, now it's gone
And I can't lift you up cause my mind is tired
It's family beaches that I desire
A sacred night, where we'll watch the fireworks
The frightened babies poo
They've got two flashing eyes and they're colored why
They make me feel that I'm only all I see sometimes

Awesome World Cup videos!

Loving both of these videos. The first is by PUMA, featuring Gnarls Barkley's "Going On", a track that makes me want to shake it (or spastically two-step), whichever.


Here's Nike's impressive Write The Future -- Nike must have spent a boatload on this, but turned out well!

Freja.

Florence + The Machine - "Heavy In Your Arms"

Recently leaked track from the next Twilight movie's soundtrack. A heady, epic story of (unrequited?) love. Florence and The Machine - Heavy in your Arms by Hypetrak

I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced a crown
I was a heavy heart to carry
My feet dragged across the ground
And he took me to the river
Where he slowly let me drown

My love has concrete feet, my love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

I'm so heavy. Heavy. Heavy in your arms

And is it worth the wait,
All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand,
Protecting both your heart and mine?
Who is the betrayer
Who's the killer in the crowd?
The one who creeps in corridors
And doesn't make a sound

My love has concrete feet, my love is an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

I'm so heavy. Heavy. So heavy in your arms

This will be my last confession
"I love you" never felt like any blessing
Whisper it like it's a secret
Uttered to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

Steven Tyler - 1976

Vampire Weekend - "I Think Ur a Contra"

Dedicated to somebody I used to know.

10. I Think Ur A Contra - Vampire Weekend by pauloalves

I had a feeling once
That you and I
Could tell each other everything
For two months

But even with an oath
With truth on our side
When you turn away from me
It’s not right

I think ur a contra

My revolution thoughts
Your little lies of desire
I want to trace them to the source
And the wire

But it’s not useful now
Since we’ve both made up our minds
You’re going to watch out for yourself
And so will I

I think ur a contra
And I think that you’ve lied
Don’t call me a contra
Till you’ve tried

You wanted good schools and friends with pools
You’re not a contra

You wanted rock and roll, complete control
Well, I don’t know

Never pick sides
Never choose between two
Well I just wanted you
I just wanted you

You said,
“Never pick sides
Never choose between two”
Well I just wanted you
I just wanted you

I think ur a contra
And I think that you’ve lied
Don’t call me a contra
Till you’ve tried
