++This is neither a brag or a lament..I just... know who so many of these people are...(!)
PS: Turning the TMZ logo into TMI? ((((love))))) TMZ should've named themselves TMI.
++The other day I wrote about that peculiar PSY and Snoop video, in a little of the ol' compare and contrast of their personas. What's amazing to me is that Pitbull and PSY haven't worked together given that their schticks are so similar. The suits, the women as accessories, and (what one can only assume,) the heavy cologne and crotchstuffing? Alas, they once graced the same stage but not at the same time, like two prizefighters passing in the night. DWAHIA,DWTS?
++For a time there I was fascinated with Bitcoin (still am to some extent) and the idea that a conventional monetary system could be, if not exactly hacked, replaced entirely on some level. What if the same thing were true for politics as we know it? That would be some trippy isht. These days conventional political systems don't seem to be able to mobilize people around a cause the way a good hashtag does, so it could happen?
++Never gonna see that new Blade Runner.
++Several months ago I posted a clip of a Disney game called Kingdom Hearts that I still think about from time to time, specifically the imagery of a fantastical, bitchin roller coaster ride that looked SO fun and couldn't ever be replicated in reality (seen at :48).
A few weeks after watching the Kingdom Hearts clip I found myself sitting, disappointed, on an actual material bunk-ass non-neon roller coaster that didn't even come close to reaching the heavens. We hardly even touched the marine layer, let alone the ozone. I mean Come. On.
Do the Germans have a word for the sensation of yearning for the materialization of the virtual? Or the growing disparity between the two? They seem to know how to label ennui. Anyway, it's the same kinda thought I had while watching this gorgeous light show in this video by Arca. Nice work, Jesse Kanda:
