That was the girl I used to be...

A little blast from the past, courtesy of the most awesome concert to come to us this summer (the most awesome concert this fall is Fabulosos Cadillacs). I luv, luv, LUV this video, No Doubt and of course, Gwenie Gwen Gwen. This video was crucial in affecting my feelings towards No doubt. I got the album when "Just a girl" was out and couldn't get enough, then came "Spiderwebs", "Excuse Mr" and eventually "Don't speak" and till this day I HATE that song. But they made it all better when they released this video, which is everything No Doubt was as a band. Check it.

Pes does it

Pes is one of those people that are around to make you feel totally lazy. Sure, it inspires me to want to set my my very own stop-animation set in my kitchen but after a couple of frames I realize: what chance do I have to ever do it like him?
I gave up this week, but next week I will tell the story of the little Pes that could and motivation will be back in a sec. Feel free to enjoy "western spaguetti"with me. Maybe mine should be called "northern ceviche" or something like that...

Not enough WTWTA??

Did you notice the song playing throughout the trailer? Yeah, I called Spike a "hipster" too, not that that's a bad thing. Arcade fire rips this movie another well deserving hole, and that's definitely not a bad thing. The song is Wake up and if you don't sing it hymn-like when waiting in line for that 3am screening of the movie in October, you might as well just call the whole thing off right now. And that would be a bad thing.

Where the wild things are...

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii finally a trailer to the vision, or pieces of it, we've been getting for almost 2 years!! If you think I'm on crack, let me put you up to speed, Spike Jonze decided to direct Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things are", which is one of the best selling children's book of all time!! And it looks AWESOME! Dark, artsy and oh-so-good. When did children become cooler than adults? Maybe is just the recession talking; you kids and your incredible timing.

I am sorry

God! there are some things that are so gooood you wish you had thought about them first. Like Portia De Rossi making a funny with this PSA spot for Jimmy Kimmel apologizing for the pain she caused the people who voted favorably to pass proposition 8. Humor will always get the message across and if you don't laugh, is just funny.

You were right, I was wrong...

...Crispin Porter, these hulu commercials rock!!  (Well, 2 out of 3 at least), this is the third piece of awesomeness...How did you know I would fall flat for Seth McFarlane, creator of Family Guy? Multiple personality giggles just crack me up, especially when they end in a Giggity Goo. It sure is an evil plot worth losing your brain for, but only the tapioca part. 

A turn off, alright

Alanis, what have you being up to? and how come you come back just to remind me why  you are not around anymore? I used to like you, damn it. I really don't know what to think of these commercials, second one courtesy of Janeane Garofalo, but they sure left me confused and completely unaware of any message what so ever. Maybe I should watch 'em again and find out? But I really don't want to live that again!! I guess, I'll never know.

The fire and the reason

Anglo-latino music these days has many faces: kinky, plastilina mosh, la rubio and a couple of others. I used to think they were sell outs, to later realize not so much. There are things I get when I hear TFATR sing in spanish, that I wouldn't relate to if they sang in another language in and viceversa, I get it. But this rule doesn't apply to everyone, given that translations are not always a direct version of the original feeling (Yes, I'm looking at you Shakira). So if you can feel and write in 2 languages, or 3 in the case of Bella, the brazilian lead singer of the band, more power to you and to you, the fire and the reason.

El calor expande...seres humanos al gigantismo

Este comercial por Ponto de Criação, de Brazil me dejo un poco confundida al final, no por el mensaje, que esta claro, pero por la historia que usaron para llegar a ese punto. Realmente no se que pensar de el, es efectivo, porque mantiene al espectador esperando por el final, pero me parece que falla en no tener ninguna conexion mas que el interes por cambiar el medio ambiente. No se si esto funcionaria con alguien, que como el tipo en el comercial, no tenga la menor idea de los efectos del calentamiento global. O si?

Best song of '09 so far...

Yes, there a couple of good contenders (THANK GOD FOR GOOD MUSIC) but I have to say this just might be my favorite. Kid Cudi has the voice, the beats, the moves and the video to back it up, and an aura that announces itself.
This video is kinda like potato chips, you can't have just one, you are most likely going to go back for more...

Day 'n' Nite - Kid Cudi from DP on Vimeo.

Un sentimiento con una etiqueta de 99 centavos...

Este comercial no es cursi, ni barato, pero por desgracia el cachito cinico de mi wacho (corazon en guayaco) me dice que estaria mejor visto siendo auspiciado por Coca Cola, como corto de cine, que poniendole un slogan al final y pretendiendo que en serio les importa algo mas que vender.
Pero despues de ver al abuelo una segunda vez, se me ablando mi dañado corazonsito...que les parece?

Bringing '97, '88 and '81 back..

I can't believe is been 12 years now, since the time I heard Depeche Mode making a "comeback". Remember "is no good"?? well, I do and I'm pretty sure there's people that think that's not even there best stuff, after all they've being around since 1981.

But there's something about them that I don't want to like but can't resist, maybe it has to do with their new wave (more like pop now) sound, but they do it SO GOOD. Check out their latest which I feel is just going to get lost in the vast sea that is the web and probably not reach as many, as our previous designated catalysts forms of media did (yes, I'm looking at you MTV). Too bad, the video is awesome.

PS: Is it Botox or just the sound of new wave that keeps them timeless? Either way I want their secret.

I wonder how you check minutes on this phone...

I'm guessing there are gifts one never forgets, for the creative people at El Cielo, Argentina, is that first cell phone. If you decide to do the upgrade from the less interactive guinea pig, that is.
Check it.
