Dallas Penn vs Asher Roth

May 29, 2009

Asher Roth Loves Job Corps from Terrence on Vimeo.

I’ve got a bit of a fan-boy admission, Dallas Penn is one of the major reasons i got into blogging.¬†Dunn and I have discussed his posts, and in particular his videos on numerous occasions.

In fact, i was actually a producer on one of his earlier videos – with Rafi Kam as the Internets Celebrities –¬†Futuristic Brunch (check the credits if you don’t believe me) and he’s only kept it moving forward from there.

Last night, after attending a little going away/album release soiree for our boy Ned, we put this one on full screen, and laughed our asses off, and yeah, there was a little of that sweet white boy weed (WBW) involved. Also massive props to Terrence Elenteny for the insanely slick editing.

So, if you don’t know, now you know.

Improbable Ads: L’Oreal Men something-or-other feat. Pierce Brosnan.

May 28, 2009

Well, given that Dubbs opened the floodgates with the ever-infuriating KFC ad, I thought I would give my two-bob’s worth with this little gem from Pierce Brosnan and the folks at L’Oreal. I couldn’t find in in English, so here it is in French.

Translation:

There’s more to life than making movies…

At which point he turns and looks disapprovingly at me (0:03). Some filthy, greasy look that implies that I have been wasting all of my time making movies while he is out ‘tirelessly campaigning for the environment’.

John-Farnham JohnFarnham

“My hair’s a little thinner… I’m not…” – John Farnham

I like John Farnham as much as the next red blooded Aussie bloke, well, as much as the next red blooded Aussie bloke to accept that in the cannon of great Australian singers he stands somewhere between Mark Holden and the Wiggles.

Lee Fields & The Expressions

Leedepot

I’ve got an admission to make, Truth & Soul Records were the first label to actually get on to us about previewing their tracks and checking for shows etc…

That said, it’s pretty serendipitous, because they (along with Now & Again) are serving up some glorious funk and deep soul nuggets, both re-issues and freshly minted productions. And that is just what i’m listening to at the moment.

Here’s a new track from 70’s legend Lee Fields, featuring what looks like half of the El Michels Affair, it’s from the forthcoming full length My World, and its all about the Ladies.

Head to Truth and Soul for more info on the record and other projects.

NOTR’s Completely Unqualified DVD Reviews

May 26, 2009

CompletelyUnqualifiedReview

Generally speaking, i tend to fly in the face of conventional wisdom and blatantly judge a DVD by it’s cover, augmented by any information i may have picked up along the way. I’m sure Mr. Ebert would never approve.

Improbable Ads: KFC

May 25, 2009

What i really wanted to discuss is the absolute, complete and utter lack of realism in the current KFC ad, for a wrap or toasted roll or some shit.

What we find is a random dude jauntily prancing down the street holding said wrap/roll/shit when he’s suddenly struck by some kind of impulse.

He stops, looks at his hand(?) and then proceeds to leap over a nearby white picket fence, cruise past a couple of chicks standing in a hallway and bowls out into the backyard, where a bit of a party seems to be jumping off. Considering the improbable nature of the ad thus far, it is no small feat that what follows is completely unbelievable.

obama-dap2

Dap – Obama style.

He walks up behind the DJ, and with the same hand that had the ‘impulse’ at the beginning (quite probably covered in traces of chicken), he does a little one-two scratch on the already playing record. Then, as if he’s not a jaunty, home invading, pain in the ass, he gives the DJ dap. For the unfamiliar, that involves the classic fist to fist tap.

My point – as if there is one – is simply that when someone barges into my house, doesn’t say hi, and then touches the records, well, lets just say that fist would be moving faster, and directed much closer to the face.

In lieu of the actual ad.

More NBA goodness…

May 24, 2009

Not to become a NBA stan or anything, and i know You Tube doesn’t count as ‘real’ content… but i’d be remiss if i didn’t include these.

Mo Williams…


LeBron can do it too…

Kobe…

King James…

May 24, 2009

I actually walked off after Turkoglu sank the 2, after nailing the 3 just before – he’s a very good player. Since then i’ve had my whole house telling me to check out the last second of the match. Well, suffice it to say, now we all know that Lebron is an alien-super-basketball-player-from-the-future.

As an aside, I am loving having the NBA playoffs on free-to-air. Its like all the youthful enthusiasm for the game that i had in primary school is coming back with a vengeance, oh, and these days Charles Barkley is a fat guy doing ‘special’ comments in a cream suit. Who’d have thought?
