Mushroom Jazz #7

DJ Mark Farina - Mushroom Jazz 7 by MemeMagazine

I am a collector of the Mushroom Jazz albums and just became aware of Mark Farina's recent addition... #7.
Mushroom Jazz is great background noise for creative activities

Michel Gondry 4 Bjork

One of my favorite directors of alllll timmmeee (who I once waited for 4 hours at UCLA to see speak..yup) just directed a new video for Bjork! If you aren't familiar with his other work- be sure to check it out! (many other Bjork videos, but also Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, the White Stripes, etc...)

Dream World

This post is for the video! Trippy and full of colors?? YES.

Majical Cloudz - "Dream World" from alice cohen on Vimeo.

Works by Robert Montgomery

Amazing work. Totally reminds me of Jenny Holzer (and a bit of Barbara Kruger, too)

Washed Out - You Will Be Sad

I was intrigued by the top comment on this video:
"this video made me realize its impossible for us to find the meaning of life, truly. there are too many beautiful distractions and interesting unrelated topics to study. if we were to devote our time to finding the truth we'd miss so many things along the way , and not being exposed to certain things- we just wouldn' get it"

Anyways, a pretty video for a pretty song.

You will be sad,... but you will be happy, too.

Update Sept 29, 2013: Wow, what a completely different experience revisiting this song and video two years later... listening to it in LA vs. Berkeley. I remember first discovering it after a long night BART ride in the Bay.. coming home to a sleeping 3-story town house filled with students. It felt more mysterious then. I felt more mysterious then and every new thing was so exciting..

Panda Bear's version of the song "Guys Eyes" before AnCo remade it for MPP

I really want to do just what my body wants to
I really want to do just what my body needs to
I really want to show to my girl that I want her (and I do)
I really want to show to my girl that I need her (and I do)
If I could just hold all the thoughts in my head and just keep them for you
If I could just purge all the urges that I have and keep them for you
I really want to show to my girl that I need her
I keep it locked right now

Need her
