“Taking Woodstock” a new Ang Lee film

Looks kind of cool.  I love Demetri Martin, very funny guy who I first noticed when he played the 4th Conchord in the season 1 finale of HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords.”

This IHOP ad from 1969 is just a wee bit trippy.

It sounds as if Alvin, of The Chipmunks, was getting pimped out to this pancake chain.  Such a shame, it used to be about the music, man!  At some point in the development process of this ad, someone was on a lot of drugs.

“In a Silent Way” by Miles Davis

October 29, 2008

It goes without saying that Miles Davis was extremely talented and influential, but I had to throw up this clip of his song “In a Silent Way” from the 1969 album of the same name. Very minimalist, and a precursor to jazz fusion and, dare I say, ambient music in general? You can really hear Brian Eno in this piece. Great album…one of many from Davis.
