Just the very idea of a music video that features the epic conflict between flamethrower and fire extinguisher piqued our curiosity. But watching this clip in all it’s slow-mo glory is truly epic. The band and song title are Dancing Pigeons – Ritalin.
Pogo is an electronic music producer currently living in Perth, Western Australia. He is known for his work recording small sounds from a single film or scene and sequencing them to form a new piece of music.
His most notable track, Alice (which I included at the bottom of this post, check it out it kicks ass.) a composition of sounds from the Disney film Alice In Wonderland, was received with much success gaining over 4 million views on YouTube as of December 2009. Pogo has since produced tracks using films like Mary Poppins, Harry Potter, Up, Hook, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. You can visit his youtube page found here to check them all out as well, for some reason his username on youtube is Fagottron which I got a good laugh at, especially since I have a friend who’s name is tron, easily calling him Fagottron from now on.
Check out the Alice song below, which is a must listen, trust us.
I would usually just put all the people featured on the song in the title but 11 names is just a little ridiculous. So the 11 artists are John Legend, The-Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, Elly Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Rihanna & Elton John. You might want to double check the final list of who’s on ‘All Of the Lights’…you might be on it. Everyone else is.
Here are forty-eight band names done in icon form for your guessing amusement. Take a little bit more time on your guesses because when I saw the answers I felt like a dumbass, some are so simplistic that your brain can’t put it together, or maybe I’m just an idiot. Of course we got you covered you can view the cheat sheet below.
Eddie Money is truly a forgotten pop star of the late 70′s and 80′s. Eddie had a string of top 40 hits in the 80′s and single handedly brought back the front man in slick suit look. Everyone knows “Take Me Home Tonight” but probably doesn’t have it on their ipod. The best part of an Eddie Money jam is that they have the same feel good, crank at the bar, sing along vibe as “Livin on Prayer” or any of those played out songs you here everywhere you go. But you don’t hear Eddie everywhere go so you never get sick of him and start hating the assbags and sorority girls singing along. God I hate “Livin on Prayer”. Used to like it and I’m from Jersey too but try going to a bar or wedding in NJ and not hearing it. Here’s 6 of the best Eddie Money jams. He’s also Joe Dirts hero in case you didn’t know.
Eddie Money – I Wanna Go Back
Eddie Money – Shakin
If you want to see a balls to the wall, drug fueled, sex driven, rock and roll partying documentary, then look no further than Cocksucker Blues, quoted by many as being the greatest rock and roll movie ever made. Cocksucker Blues is an unreleased documentary, directed by Robert Frank, which followed the Rolling Stones on their 1972 North American tour. The film was not only unreleased, it is actually under court order, which forbids the film to ever be shown in public. The only exception is that the director, Robert Frank, is allowed to show the film once a year, and needs to be physically present at the screening. The film is a parade of grainy images fueled by wild roadies, back stage partying, naked groupies, over the top drug consumption, and o yea, some concert footage. To put it into perspective, guitarist Keith Richards was quoted as saying, “If anyone in America saw it, we’d never be let in the country again.” If you can manage to get your hands on a copy you won’t be disappointed, we sure weren’t.
Shout out to my boy Cory for tipping us on this.
Here is the iconic fashion of 20 male musicians over time. If you can’t figure out each get up, here is the cheat sheet below.

Love him or hate him Kanye knows how to push the envelope. He decided not to make a generic 4 minute video for his new song Runaway, but instead jacked it up to a 34 plus minute mini movie featuring the gorgeous Selita Ebanks. If you have a half an hour to kill check it out below.
Photographer Sam O’Hare makes all the attendees at this year’s Coachella festival look really, really tiny, courtesy of the now familiar tilt-shift lens – used to perfect effect in this setting.
Words from the director:
“I wanted to portray a unique view of the incomparable Coachella experience. Following the crowds in the sunshine from arrival, camping, exploring the art in the arena, all the way through to the headliners at night, this film brings a miniature feel to this huge festival. For more information about how it was done, please check the Aero Film blog post here.
The recycling of 1980′s culture just keeps getting stronger. If you don’t believe me head to Williamsburg, BK hang with some hipsters you will think it is the 80′s. Plus the jersey shore types are just a new version of the 80′s hair band rock scene. Laughable, but for some reason catches on. Either way 80′s rule and don’t be ashamed to get caught digging the jams. Here’s a few plus that Samsung phone commercial song in case that’s been stuck in your head.
Sick stache Oates!
Hall and Oates – Out of Touch
Psychadelic Furs – Love My Way
