Nope, there's the little blonde girl in the DOPE hat at the beginning. Check that box. This production is not as great as the 90's Timbaland production, which was truly groundbreaking and bizarre for it's time. Loops of a baby cooing, cicadas, moans - minimalist shit that was almost as abstract as it was catchy.

Missy Elliott – “WTF (Where They From)” (Feat. Pharrell Williams) Video
The Radio Soulwax videos are incredible. When their app was active and regularly updated, it was the greatest art installation app in existence. Most of the videos are still viewable on Vimeo.

Rihanna – “Bitch Better Have My Money”
I love this song. Someone needs to mash it up with Beck's Deadweight for a dooo-dooo masterpiece. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vptfm9D6owo

Watch Spoon Bring Otherworldly Swagger To
The Tonight Show
It's the song of a woman keening over her lost daughter and it is excellent. Beatles fans have been angry and humorless about Yoko forever and although she is a serious artist, she also employs humor - the two are not mutually exclusive. The Redd Kross side project Tater Totz incited a crowd of Beatles fans with this song at BeatleFest in 1988. The hilarious video is on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8kmcjGtS2s

Yoko Ono & Yo La Tengo Glastonbury Video Goes Viral For All The Wrong Reasons
For all the money spent carpet bombing the world with Reflektor promotions, it sold less than The Suburbs. So, it seems major labels are still able to spend piles of money which is then deducted from the artist's earnings.

Amanda Palmer – “Do It With A Rockstar” NSFW Video (Co-Dir. Wayne Coyne, Ft. Stoya)
I read the Stereogum Turntable interview where Ed discusses getting together to start recording the album after not seeing each other for 8 months. Most folks don't take 8 month breaks every 2 years. Grizzly Bear doesn't have a crazy touring schedule. I sympathize with them - while wishing I could take 8 month breaks, travel, record and write songs in Mexico. There are some perks. I'm sure having a house in NYC would be perkier. Is listening to their album on MOG acceptable if I only like it and don't love it?

Grizzly Bear Are Not Rich
I think Sea Change became popular 5 years later, when the cover and some songs were included on every Mac in Apple stores. I'd love to see the SoundScan figures for sales-by-year. The initial release was met with disappointment but I think the appreciation has deservedly grown over the years.

I forgot about that band. Best Coast, not Nirvana.

I largely agree with this but find my own enjoyment of their current work fades with age - my age and their age. Does "twee" work when the band is middle aged?

Watch No Doubt “Settle Down” At Teen Choice Awards
I think I'll be asking for a refund. The charm of ATP, to me, was the feeling of taking over a resort, like a great out-of-town wedding, with all your friends and favorite bands playing. You could easily duck out of the shows, smoke a joint, take a nap and watch baseball in your room and then jump back into the action. Manhattan won't provide that vibe. I can't see myself in a $350 per night hotel room at 3AM and thinking, "I'll stroll over to the pier now to watch some films".

ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror Moves To NYC, Amends Lineup
Shepherd Fairey, what a talent! His originality remains supreme. He apparently had the leeway to change the band name to the 5-Tones. That's highly original and the bass player (not pictured) probably appreciates the reference.
