Where were you when Game Of Thrones "The Red Wedding" aired?

RUN DMC
Aerosmith
Walk This Way

Run DMC & Aerosmith's Walk This Way music video.
In my opinion, this announced the arrival of rap to the mainstream music scene in the 80's.

David Fincher

David Fincher made many over 50 music videos. Included are 17 I selected that I feel serve as visual proof of his innate genius.

Kurt Cobain
21 Years Gone
The Impact And Legacy

Kurt Cobain ascended the golden ladder, a ladder most will never glimpse.
He he climbed to the very top...and saw a curtain, behind which he always thought would be his salvation.
He reached over the ladder and peaked behind...
And for whatever reason...
After years of imaging the solace he might find....
Whatever Kurt saw back there...
He didn’t want to take another step after that...

He just wanted off the ladder by any means necessary.

Soaked In Bleach
Was Kurt Cobain Murdered

"Why was he killed? Who profited? Who had the power to cover it up?"

- Oliver Stones "JFK", 1991

"Let justice be done, though the heavens may fall."
- William Murray,

The Distance

"As they speed through the finish, the flags go down.
The fans get up...and they get out of town.
The arena is...empty except for 1 man, still driving and striving as fast as he can. "

Oasis
Champagne Supernova, 1996

"Slowly walking down the hall... Faster than a cannonball...
Where were you while we were getting high?"

Bright Eyes "Lua"

I had to add the lyrics to this song below for my legions of imaginary fans to soak up. This song in its subtle lyrical genius rocked my face off. I use to randomly pick out one line at a time and throw it up on my Facebook page, and without fail, people would read it and comment something to the effect of... "Wow" Or "Beautiful" Or "Hey Wes, who wrote this" Or "I'm sorry I tried to steal your "Return Of The Jedi" Speeder Bike toy when we were kids..." Because the song is hauntingly, beautiful and perfection. I […]

Bright Eyes "At The Bottom Of Everything"

What up yo. I was out of work 5 years back. Found a blog by a girl from New York City. She was from the Midwest, had a drug problem and came here to Metropolis to be in Fashion School and to model. Damn it, I wish I could remember then name of her blog. She would write these long articles about missing this guy, missing that guy, going online to chat rooms and meeting guys who always ended up exposing themselves to her. It was a good read. Anyway, She listened to kick ass music. I discovered "The XX" […]

Joy Division’s Transmission From Anton Corbijn's Control

I could go off here for a while about the beauty of Anton's eye, how he paints with images, how the black and white photography in this film shot by cinematographer Martin Ruhe is gorgeous and the entire film looked like silk to me, but I'm sitting in a parking lot banging this out on my iPad and I need to get back home. But listen. I didn't know much about Joy Division before watching this film. Then as it progressed, and because I have this crush on all things Great Britain (I'm going home to my British SwePea), I […]
