Max the King of All Wild Things
Oh, and skip to 1:22:30 for the truck chase which is just awesome.
I’m not sure on full-on collaborations like this, but I know Steven Soderbergh recently re-scored INDIANA JONES AND THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK as a silent black and white film with music from stuff like THE SOCIAL NETWORK (ostensibly as a way to illustrate staging), and the results of that were pretty damn interesting:
Well, hey, there’s always, uh, dubstep?
Nevermind. I’m just gonna go bring surf rock back.
“Concept film” is a good term for an ad where your product is pretty much entirely incidental to the awesomeness happening in it.
Meta-Modern is definitely one of, and sometimes, my favorite of the year. It’s just so damn good all the way around.
No kidding. I mean, it’s not like U2 gave Apple the album a ton. There was even a quote floating around where Bono said he wouldn’t do that because it “devalues music.” So, do a little research for, I guess, Carney.
Also the rumors make it sound like U2 REALLY values their music: http://www.spin.com/articles/u2-100-million-apple-deal-songs-of-innocence-itunes-free-red/
Hm. Yeah, but I think Kickstarter will still tax them since RTJ’s is donating the money, NOT the Kickstarter. The Kickstarter pays RTJ’s who then donates it. Or at least that’s how I understand it.
I’ve been in a real bad place lately, but the existence of this alone kinda makes me feel like it’s going to be alright.
Yeah I’ve been really confused by the lack of attention around that one.
He’s not donating, though, he’s paying for it. He elaborates on the Kickstarter:
“So that being said THIS KICKSTARTER IS NOT RAISING MONEY FOR CHARITY….ALL MONEY RAISED WILL BE USED TO PAY EL-P AND KILLER MIKE TO CREATE THE “MEOW THE JEWELS” ALBUM,$40000 will be used to pay Run The Jewels. $2050 will be used for Kickstarter Fees $2050 will be used for the ‘Amazon Payment‘ fees. $1000 has been allocated for rewards/shipping.
