I can't really remember how clever I as 13, I was pretty street smart no doubt but Tavi has to be a child prodigy right?

get me?

New Look

I really like Canadian 'future pop' band New Look. Myspace to listen. Sorry I will work stuff out one day and embed music but for now I too busy looking for warm clothes like these guys. Look out for an album early 2010.

Bright Eyes 1990's - 2002

Been meaning to get the Saddlecreek DVD for years finally got it the other day, really good, pretty inspiring. Just ask if you want to borrow it. This is the section dedicated to Bright Eyes. Who wants to start a band? I'm well bored of not being Conor Oberst

Bon Iver: A Take Away Show

I'm sure you have seen this, but just incase you haven't or you want to brighten a murky Friday, here you go. All the other parts and millions of other amazing films here

Jim Goldberg - Open See

the Jim Goldberg exhibition currently at the Photographers Gallery in London is one of my favourite photography exhibitions ever. It's basically a study around Europe of illegal immigrants, refugees, displaced people, and asylum seekers from Africa. It's not as grim as it sounds, I couldn't articulate why but it's not. He is also featured in this months FOAM magazine, which is an incredible magazine. If you go to the photographers gallery make sure you get a tuna sandwich, second to none.

Michael Hoppen Gallery London

Alex Prager

I've never been to the Michael Hoppen Gallery as it's in gay old South West London, but it has two great exhibitions at the moment so I might leave the safety of my east london bubble for a few hours. Colour, a group show featuring Alex Prager, Tim Walker, Ofer Wolberger, Guy Bourdin and others. And the other exhibition is centered around Weegee, who i blogged about in my 3rd ever blogpost.

EDIT: this was a bit shit.

Sarah Kate

Lovely work, lots more here

Spike Jonze Interviewed by Adam Buxton

I really love the Adam & Joe 6Music podcasts, incredibly funny, So having Adam interview Spike in the mac store is a right old treat, the podcast of it is now on Itunes, just search, or it's here on Adam's page, which also has other good links on it.

Brand & Brooker on Have I Got News For You

Came across this doubly wammy on youtube the other day.

Spike Spends Saturday with Shane Smith

I'm sure you all got this in the Vice mailout because they got all our email address by putting on a free crystal castles tour, but just in case you didn't, this is spike meeting the founder of Vice, it's nice to see Spike trotting about more than anything

Ellie Goulding

I've missed any Ellie hype and subsequently am a fan, Gareth aint buying it. I'm not saying she's amazing or anything it's not like when I heard Foundations for the first time, I just like a bit of youthful romantic melancholy. Wearing a 2007 american apparel huddy aint doing her any favours but we can see past that.

what do you guys think?

myspace (inc Bon Iver cover)

EDIT: ok it's been 2 weeks, now i hate her. Pretentious indie equilibrium restored.
