Elizabeth Taylor and Old Hollywood

Today, March 23, 2011, we lost the legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor. Renown for her beauty, this star of Old Hollywood will certainly be missed by the people of the world. My thoughts and love are with all those mourning her loss.

I had no idea Julian Casablancas was a Star Wars fan. Apparently so…

Keep up with Julian Casablancas through his website or Twitter.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Julian Casablancas + Andy Samberg = SNL’s greatest moment

leave a comment »

Ok. Ok. Maybe not the greatest, but undoubtedly one of the best in the near past and probably future. I, of course, am biased because of my love for Julian Casablancas, but I don’t care. I’m probably not the only person out there who has just stopped caring about SNL all together due to it’s lameness. The comedic musical moments brought together by Andy and crew are pretty much the only thing of value on that show anymore and his latest and (in my opinion) greatest with JC is superb not only for the comedic value, but also for the greatness of the song. Comedy aside, Casablancas delivers his typical insightful, almost cheesy lyrics, that you can’t help sing along with. In the severe Strokes drought that the world has been experiencing for the past years, “Boombox” along with some other musical efforts from Casablancas, are the guiding light to the end of the tunnel that is hopefully The Strokes’  fourth LP.

I was afraid that the video for “Boombox” was never going to be made; but thanks to my dear friend Annie who informed me its existence, I present to you the video for “Boombox” performed by The Lonely Island featuring Julian Casablancas.

Julian Casablancas premieres “11th Dimension” video

leave a comment »

Julian Casablancas premiered his debut music video for “11th Dimension” over on Babelgum. It is freakin’ rad!

Check out the video here.

I can’t contain myself. I’ve been waiting for him to put out a video; I am so glad it was for this song. I love the video. It just makes me smile with all the effects and different imagery. If you thought the song sounded like it came out of the 80s, just wait until you watch the video. Lot’s of vests and bad hair. There’s even a miniature storyline flowing through there too. Although the video is somewhat laughable, I still love it. I fantasized about making a video for this and having lots of choreographed dancing because that all I can do to this song. Unfortunately there isn’t any in the video, but Julian does pull a lot of moves I never thought I would see him do. Oh geez…I am just in love. I just watched it once – I am at work – but needless to say, the video is rad!

Be Rad. Enjoy.
