Very early recording of the fabulous Golden Gate Quartet, a Do-Wop style vocal group formed in 1934, which amazingly is still active today (albeit with changes of membership). They’re singing ‘Hush’, a gorgeous tune reminiscent of the somnambulant effects of many Paul Robeson songs.
Released: Live from Yugoslavia.1967.
New music video from David Bowie, starring Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard.
Directed by: Floria Sigismondi
Perhaps how it will all end?

Dolls are creepy to begin with; they’re the manifestation of a person’s desire to recreate themselves, and so have a vested interest in looking marginally disturbing. They are frequently and overtly child-like in appearance too, and this short plays on both themes to bring you an altogether terrifying piece of art, bundled into what appears to be a light-hearted story. Don’t be fooled.
Thank you Rachel C. for the recommendation.

Funny, informative, and a little bit terrifying short doc on how a virus gets into you, proliferates, and in turn gets murdered wholesale (hopefully). It’s a brutal world in there.
With all the feelings invoked in a Hayao Miyazaki film; an immediate immersion into a sprawling world; a life lesson regarding the importance of educating those you send into the world and giving them the eyes to see: this film is a delight and a gorgeous piece of art.
Thanks to Whitney for the recommendation.

A few things went through my mind with this, firstly that perhaps it was simply a CGI showcase.
Secondly, maybe I’m just watching a sci-fi film where humans don’t exist anymore and the animals have inherited the Earth.
Thirdly… giraffes are frikkin’ weird looking creatures when you stare at them for long enough…
