cat-ba-leopard-gecko

And by best friend, I mean creature that I will introduce into children’s nightmares. I kid, sort of.

From MSNBC:
“A Cat Ba leopard gecko has a technicolor pattern along its body and was found on Cat Ba Island in northern Vietnam. Named Goniurosaurus catbaensis, it has large, orange-brown catlike eyes with long and thin legs, digits and claws.”

Thom Yorke + Flea = A Super Band we never dreamed of

yorke-flea

Stranger things have happened…We love supergroups but, this is more like a surreal group. Maybe that,s why it could work? Something about the spectacle of it all.

“Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has formed a new band … featuring Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not content with singing in one of the world’s biggest rock groups, Yorke felt the need to recruit the Chili Peppers bass slapper to fulfill his musical vision. The band, which will play live dates next week, also includes Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.”

Read more about this crazy collaboration at The Guardian, also check out a band photo Tom posted on his site.

An Evening of Skate Videos at Moma

_38_spikejonze

Get some…

In honor of the MoMA retrospective Spike Jonze: The First 80 Years, PopRally has invited producer and photographer Patrick O’Dell (of Epicly Later’d) to create a special compilation of seminal skateboard videos from the 1980s to today. Jonze, whose own contributions to the genre will be featured, notes that, “Skate videos have been a big influence and a big part of what I’ve done for a long time. They are how I got into film, actually.” This unique screening is followed by a conversation with legendary skateboarders and filmmakers, including Jonze, Lance Mountain, Greg Hunt, Jake Phelps, Ty Evans, and other surprise guests.

Afterward please join us upstairs for a special performance by NO AGE.

The program begins promptly at 7:30.

Special thanks to Nike SB, Altamont Apparel, LTD, and ACE HOTEL NEW YORK for their sponsorship of this event. Beer generously provided by Colt 45.

Guests of this event receive an exclusive limited-edition poster by Chris Johanson
