One of the best music video concepts I’ve seen in a long time.

Super impressed by this music video for singer/songwriter Oren Lavie. It’s an incredible concept and execution is flawless. The song is called “Her Morning Elegance” but without this video, well, you get where this is going.

The Flaming Lips tricked-out guitar hero double-neck axe!

The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has always been a favorite of mine. A few years back, I interviewed him backstage at The Roxy and was convinced he was on drugs. Nope. He’s as straight as an arrow but as out there as Tori Spelling. And don’t think I wasn’t gonna mention good ‘ole Tori without referencing The Flaming Lips classic performance at the Peach Pit. That’s a top-five high-school highlight, yo!  Well, most recently, Wayne and band performed the NBC chime while showing off his latest concoction, a double-neck guitar with a tricked-out Guitar-Hero axe. Damn, this guy continues to push the musical boundaries and let me continue to say, I’m impressed. Watch video closeups here.

CameraBag just made you a better iPhotographer

We’re always on the hunt for new iPhone apps and CameraBag is definitely a keeper. It applies filters that emulate several different camera and film styles, giving your photos an old-school, cinematic appeal. So that shitty 2 megapixel snapshot might just be a keeper now.
