Of Monsters and Men – Dirty Paws


I heard this song while watching the trailer to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It’s crazy how these songs get by you, this one has been out for over a year. I guess it takes the right alignment of dramatic visuals in order for the song to really resonate with me sometimes. I will definitely have to check out their album My Head is an Animal even though I am doubting that the rest of the songs will contain any of the soulfulness that this song contains. If you haven’t already heard it, enjoy!

LA is My Playground film (FINALLY!!!)


So this trailer dropped a long time ago. It seems like I’ve been waiting forever for the film to drop that’s because it has been forever. I finally found it, someone said they posted it back in September, bullshit cuhz. LA is My Playground is a short film directed by Jason Madison that gives a closer look at the artist that were on the rise from LA back in 2010. He gives a glimpse into the lives of Pac Div, Nipsey Hussle, and DOM Kennedy back then. So enjoy the full footage after the link. Continue reading

Skin: A Film by Ryan Hope

Skin from Ryan Hope on Vimeo.

I have been waiting forever for this to go public and come to the states like forever! Skin is a documentary that looks at the art side of tattoos. Ryan Hope documents a project for Garage Magazine where they choose random people to receive a free tattoo at will from Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Raymond Pettibon. I do have to note that some of the scenes contain some mature content. The visuals are dark but contemporary at the same time. There’s a scene in the doc that one of the art business men tells of an artist who tattooed pigs, yes pigs, when they were alive. Then once the pig died or was slaughtered they were skinned and the skin was stretched and put on a canvas. Crazy right, well it didn’t stop there, evidently the same artist has tattooed a human being and once that person passes on, the same thing will happen. The music used in the documentary matches the personalities of the people who were chosen and Ryan Hope makes everything flow well together. I was entrapped by this documentary the whole time.
