A couple of months ago I upgraded my cell phone to an “Android” device. My motivation for choosing the particular model that I did was solely for its name, ‘Optimus’, which for me is a reference to Transformers leader, Optimus Prime. I don’t really use the blue-tooth capabilities but the way people walk around with that bug in their ear reminds me of the technology portrayed in the old school Star Trek episodes. If those little things that go in your ear went on your chest instead, it would be just like a communicator used by the crew. In fact, the technology of my phone is better than that of Captain Kirk’s outdated flip-phone, especially if I were to duct tape a Tazer to my cellular device. In this age of technology, life is imitating art more and more and what we once thought could only exist in worlds of Science Fiction is rapidly becoming a reality that we take for granted. Some of you may scoff at this notion and point out that there are no flying cars, faster-than-light travel, or hover boards, but people are working on it. What we do have is cars that parallel park themselves, bionic limbs, and, as we have seen recently, holographic technology that would put R2D2 to shame. Read the rest of this entry →
When DFA records founder, James Murphy dropped his debut LCD Soundsystem full-length, it’s lead off track was “Daft Punk is Playing at my House“. Now it’s 5 years later and the electro-dance maestro is continuing to demonstrate his affinity for cybernetic organisms and house parties. The latest LCD release, This is Happening is a really solid album (especially, the opener “Dance Yrself Clean”), but I wasn’t immediately sold from the first single, “Drunk Girls“. The song “Home“, on the other hand, is much more representative of the overall sound on the new release. What makes it even better is the crazy new video for “Home” that has just hit the interweb like a busted computer monitor . As you’ll see for yourself, it’s part Pinnochio, part Iron Man, and entirely pretty awesome. It’s got everything: cocaine, robots, lite brite pegs, foil, orgies… everything.
