Movies You Should See Vol 1 - Monster Squad

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 02 AUG 2013 @ 03:17 PM


This little pearler from 1987 was shown to me by my older brother when I was about 10 and since the first viewing, has unfalteringly been one of my all time fav movies. 

Directed by Fred Dekker (of House and Night of the Creeps fame), Monster Squad keeps in line with the horror/comedy vibe only instead of nubile college students or war vet novelists at the helm of the story, Dekker's leads are a bunch of archetypal kids; fat, scared, nerdy, farty, unlikey heroes and of course, the dead-arm purveying older brother who ends up being awesome.

The kids AKA The Monster Squad, find themselves in a battle to stop Dracula and his gang of classic movie monsters (Wolf Man, Creature From The Black Lagoon, Mummy Man, Frankenstein) from ruling the world. That's it. But not. There's so much more. It's funny, genuinely creepy and is actually a pretty well made movie despite what you may think considering Dekker's previous outings.

You need to watch this movie. It may not blow you away and if you're not a movie or specifically a horror movie fan, you may not get as big a kick out of it, but it's nonetheless a cult classic with enough gold in it to not regret taking our advice.

Learn How to Twerk with Nicki Minaj

BLOG POSTED BY SINEADSTUBBINS ON 26 JUL 2013 @ 12:39 PM
Wow.

Spin has just debuted the music video for Busta Rhyme's new single "Twerk It", which features Nick Minaj and is produced by Pharrell Williams. The song is average (Americans, stop putting on Jamaican accents!) but the video directed by Director X in Brooklyn is ... wow. Basically if seeing a lot of women twerk in slow motion, including Ms. Minaj herself, is your jam, then you will really enjoy this.

Picture Tape Ep by Brothers Hand Mirror

BLOG POSTED BY PASHONCOOP ON 25 JUL 2013 @ 02:23 PM


I'm not even going to pretend like I've ever heard of Brothers Hand Mirror before. Like I would anyway. Good Ole Collarbones just posted about them not even a couple of hours ago. Still listening to BHM new EP Picture Tape and getting caught up on their older stuff.  Being a hip hop head listening to BHM is refreshing. Why? It's good to hear something out of the ordinary. I really don't even listen to new rap or hip hop that much. But when I do, the expectations are high. Brothers Hand Mirror does that to me and should you.  It may be weird that this is coming from a state boy but starting up in the lyrical and beat making game I can say these Brothers got it going on universally with musical flair. It's good to have inspiration that will push you to get off your ass and get something done.  

A free download is pretty surprising for this EP, but fuck it, and download it before they charge you fools.

Ian Strange AKA Kid Zoom SUBURBAN exhibition at NGV Friday 26th July

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 19 JUL 2013 @ 06:21 PM


It looks like we're in for a treat next week, homie Ian Strange (AKA Kid Zoom for those of you who look at graffiti) has brought his epic Suburban project to Melbourne. I recommend checking this one out if you're in town, I've attached the preview video below so you can see the scale of the project. It is by no understatement a huge effort and worth braving the winter weather to lay your eyes on. More details below the video.



"Ian Strange: Suburban is a multifaceted photography, film, installation exhibition and film project created by New York-based Australian artist Ian Strange. Since 2011 Strange worked with a film crew and volunteers in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire to create, photograph and film seven site specific interventions incorporating suburban homes. The recording of these interventions through film and photographic documentation forms the basis of this new body of work."

Friday 26th July (opening 6:30pm) – Sunday 15th September 2013

Lego goes back to the future

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 19 JUL 2013 @ 02:32 PM


Everything about Lego's fan-designed Back To The Future Delorean, Doc and Marty toys is awesome. It's been in the pipeline for a while with Lego teasing peeps with a sneak peak not too long ago. 

The set is available for $34.99 and is super limited so best get in quick. 

And don't worry, you're never too old to play with toys.

Teaching Oldboy new tricks

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 12 JUL 2013 @ 02:58 PM
Honestly, we wouldn't have picked Spike Lee to take on the task of remaking Park Chan-wook's seemingly incomparable revenge flick Oldboy. We guess if Lee is going to go down the treacherous remake trail then Oldboy at least falls in line with his often controversial subject material. However, we have had our doubts since we heard it. 

The red band trailer has now been released and Josh Brolin has alleviated some of our concerns. From what we can gather it seems like Lee is going to stay reasonably close to the Chan-wook's style with Brolin's hair and garb not far off the original.

Anyway, as with all trailers, we'll find out the truth when it opens.
