Best track ever! Part III: Simple Minds - I Travel



We owe an apology. We owe an apology to Jim Kerr and his Simple Minds. That's because we hated them. We spat on them and called all Simple Minds fans stupid. Back in the days when we only had ears for The Cookie Crew and Fast Eddie. But now when we start realizing what great music they produced, I travel earns the title of Archibald Kobayashi's 'Best Track ever! Part III'!

Magnetic Movie



Fantastic movie from Semiconductor. If we understood it correctly this film is shot in NASA's Space Sciences Laboratory, where they somehow recorded inaudible electro magnetic waves to then translate them to graphical images. Reading comments below their posted video you feel people wondering: can this be true? In our opinion it doesn't really matter if its true, fake or a bit of both. Its just an amazing piece of work.

Russian criminal tattoo's


















In search for a fresh new tattoo for Archibald we found this gallery with pictures from Russian Criminals with some proper old school shit on their bodies.

Go and see:



The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. A documentary which follows a middle school science teacher as he battles a hot sauce mogul for the Guinness World Record on the arcade classic Donkey Kong. Prepare for some fantastic footage and unforgetable one liners from arcade hall youth. (Thanks Pikkesnijder!)

Best track ever! Part II



Forget our previous post about Zappa's Peaches and Regalia being the best track ever. This here piece Terra Aria from Italian cellist Giovanni Sollima is our new best track ever... Seeing this man perform on Dutch TV show Vrije Geluiden last sunday morning made us gaze at the screen for 6 minutes like that one emoticon with his eyes open wide...

No comments necessary























Ah well just one then..
We see a strinking resemblance between the man on the right and the Yeti from Tin Tin in Tibet. So the message goes out to Spielberg en Jackson: stop casting for that role! We found your man!

Tip: put on the Daedelus track, 3 posts below and look at this image...

Richard Pryor loaded on cocaine



It must have been the ultimate wet dream or at the same time the worst nightmare for a journalist to interview Richard Pryor in the early 80's, just when he was at his top of his career and coke addiction. Wet dream, because you know you get crazy footage. Nightmare because there was no way to handle this man.

"I'm a rich black ignorant nigger. Fuck you all". May he rest in peace.

Asger Carlsen













































Wrong is the title of a bizarre series of photo's taken by talented Danish photographer Asger Carlsen.
