Hello - New York Groove




I have never been to New York, and frankly I am quite biased towards it. I live only a couple hours from Chicago, which is why I think Chicago is a better city. However this song is just awesome and makes me want to go to NYC, just to walk down the streets jamming to it. Most people nowadays would probably recognize it from being included on the Grand Theft Auto IV soundtrack, but I hear it a lot on the radio where I live. That is why I decided to make a post about it!

I also was bored and took the picture a picture of the New York skyline from the 1990s it looks like and aged it to look like it is like a photo from the 1970s. I think it turned out fairly well.

Nails 88 Lines about 44 Women (More pictures of celebs smoking)





I haven't exhausted my collection of pictures yet! Just like in my last post there will be pictures of celebrities and models smoking. Also today's post's song sounds a lot like the song from the previous post, but came out around 10 years before. There is a definite influence from this song.

Butthole Surfers - Pepper (with pictures of celebs smoking)


The Butthole Surfers are definitely an interesting band, and their song Pepper is definitely my favorite song by them. It has a laid back slightly surreal feel to it. To accompany this song I have a bunch of black and white wallpapers of various celebs smoking, as the pictures fit the feel of the song. As I said, I am rather good at matching pictures up with songs!

Jane's Addiction - Ocean Size





I saw this picture, and thought "I think I could find a song to go with said picture." I am usually pretty good at it, but not today. It took my 2 hours to figure out a song to go with said picture, which is a bit frustrating to me, because I can usually figure a song out withing 10 minutes maximum. It was fun to have a challenge though. The song I finally ended up choosing was Ocean Size by Jane's Addiction. I think it fits rather well.

Boards of Canada- Hi Scores (Marble Hornets music video)


For those who do not know what Marble Hornets is, it is a web series that revolves around a group of students and the production of a film called Marble Hornets. Early on though the film is abandoned and Alex, the director, goes missing, leaving boxes of tapes behind for his friend. Through these tapes Jay, the narrator of the series, discovers what happened before Alex went missing. One of the malevolent entities in the series is The Operator, know more commonly as the Slenderman. The series is very popular and well produced, and has garnered the praise of film critic Roger Ebert.
More about the series can be found here at this site, including the videos from the series.
The music video was created by a friend of mine, who's deviantart can be found here, and features the song Hi Scores by Boards of Canada from the 1996 EP of the same name. I think the music fits the video rather well!
