Canned Culture Episode 4 - The Next Frontier


Do yourself a 2-minute favor and watch the trailer here

((Tarnation Trailer))

Trust me on this one folks. If your a fan of pushing the boundaries on film and interested to see something truly original this is for you.

My own personal comparison would put this film akin to the terrifying stark reality of Harmony Korine's Gummo with the erie edge of something David Lynch might dream up, but with a sincerity and sense of wonder almost comic in its insanity such as Todd Solondz's Palindromes.

Look for more info on Palidromes next show.

Current TV

I can do nothing more then direct you to their site with a link

Current TV

well maybe a bit more: About Current TV:

Current is a national cable and satellite channel dedicated to bringing your voice to television.

Current is about what's going on: stories from the real world, told by you.

We slice our schedule into short segments that we call "pods" -- each just a few minutes long. You'll see profiles of interesting people on the rise, intelligence on trends as they spring up around us, and international news from new perspectives.

And much of it comes straight from you.

We call it viewer-created content, or VC2. Right now, VC2 makes up about a third of our channel -- and that share is growing.

It works like this:

Anyone who wants to contribute can upload a video. Then, everyone in the Current online community votes for what should be on TV. You can join in at either stage -- watch & vote or make video. (We've also got online training to help you get the skills you need to make TV!)

This is definitely not a traditional TV network. Watching Current, you'll see more, on more topics, from more points of view.

But if we're going to succeed, we need you to do more than watch; we need you to jump in and participate.

Regina Spektor

Typically I might direct you to the artists official site, but to be honest her site is lacking the personal flavor that her (now dont roll your eyes) myspace does.

Plenty of great info can be found here

Regina Spektor on Myspace

Chew on that kiddies. By the way if you get enough of a taste that you cannot stop listening for several hours and you feel the day is not complete unless you've heard this miraculous voice here is what to do

Step 1: learn lyrics and sing to yourself
Step 2: learn lyrics and sing to others
Step 3: create music videos in your head
Step 4: buy a fricken ticket to her show at Park West on October 15th @ 7:30PM

What...thats not enough for you? Check back real soon for some highly useful need-to-know-net links. Promise to be up real soon.
