Emerald City Design - Vodafone Liquid Luscious International approached Emerald City to create an empty urban world of hard surfaces and neon lights where solitary characters find freedom and poetry in their power to move and be connected, thus giving street credibility to urban remoteness. Designing and matte painting the entirety of the environments allowed Emerald City to assemble recognizable yet unnervingly odd places whose intense ambiance suggest a painting while maintaining a hip urban aesthetic. Emerald City then built the warped characters with artificially attached heads and joltingly edited dancing, and composited the final shots to produce a coolly contemporary spot.
Promise This (Cheryl Cole Acoustic Cover) - Aimee Holland DONT LISTEN ON FULL VOLUME !! You might be deafened. Head Joltingly good! I dont know whats up with the head/facial action but enjoy! By the way, apologies for the awful sound quality, my laptop has the worst and most sensitive microphone built into it and so I had to be quieter than usual.
Tim Lee & Matt Piucci (Gone Fishin') - Charlie Jones Tim Lee (Windbreakers) together with the imaginative Rain Parade guitarist Matt Piucci publised this folk-rock acoustic album. Called "Gone Fishin' - Can't Get Lost When You're Goin' Nowhere", was recorded in Mississippi in February 1986. With the collaborations of Bruce Goldon, Randy Everett, George Cartwright, Bobby and Robin Sutliff and Andy Piucci this is an strange album.While the sound quality is good and some of the songs are decent, the album also has its share of less effective tunes, pedestrian solo break sections, and at times joltingly sloppy ensemble playing. Highlights include "Touch the Gold," twith its rasping bluesy singing and spare arrangement featuring twangy slide guitar and clipped organ; "Lift It Up," with its almost shouted vocal, fuzz rock guitar, and chorus-only vintage-garage-band-sounding keyboards and drums; and two acoustic singer-songwriter style numbers, "Take a Left" and "Too Many Eyes," the latter exhibiting an especially yearning, if squarish, melodiousness. REM's musical influence on this album is never too far from the surface and is especially noticeable on the ringing guitar track "Charlie Jones", writen by Dan Stuart (Green On Red).

Lightspeed Champion - Madame Van Damme (2010) Lightspeeds early leaning towards American country dressings is traded here for a palette that draws on classical music and even musical theatre. Producer and mixer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley) assembles the eclectic grab-bag of influences: joltingly 70s guitar and synth sounds, classical piano, Greek choruses shouting reprisals, and at least one ukelele-driven moment.

Out of the Darkness, Light (the final 'Mining Review') (1983) For more information on 'King Coal', a major exploration of Britain's coal mining industry as seen on film, visit The opening suggests nothing less than a Twilight of the Gods. What follows is the last-ever 'Mining Review' (over 400 were made in total). Narrated by Francis Gysin (long-time head of the National Coal Board Film Unit), it's laced with melancholy, yet utterly free of self-pity. Many virtues of Gysin's unit are aptly present and correct. Points are visually communicated with remarkable economy, sometimes by a single expertly-chosen shot. The enigmatic merry-go-round logic of the coal industry's fluctuations is delineated with a clarity few economists could muster. Attacks on rival industries and capricious governments are joltingly forthright. And the determinedly upbeat diagnosis of the future is loyal indeed, given the NCB's cost-cutting closure of its films department. So 'Mining Review' exited with dignity. And dusk came anyway, anything but gently. The industry's Götterdämmerung descended the following year.

"Carted off to Central America" Ddgfraser's photos around Cartagena, Colombia A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Cartagena, Colombia by TravelPod blogger Ddgfraser titled "Carted off to Central America". TravelPod is a company of TripAdvisor™. Ddgfraser's travel blog entry: "An e-mail from our friends Jacques and Elizabeth rescued us from the thorns of the rose bushes. Their message says that they are about to enter into Colombia from Venezuela and will be in Cartagena in a couple of days to arrange shipping to Panama and are we interested in sharing a container again. It is great to smell the roses but don't miss the boat. A day earlier we had no idea as to the where -a -bouts of our friends other than suspecting that they may be lost somewhere in Venezuela. Their plan was to ship from Caracas to Canada, then to France where they live. We entertained a short lived idea to ship from Caracas but changed our minds because firstly,we are familiar with Cartagena and its ports and that alone eases the difficult shipping experience, or does it? Caracas turned out to be a nightmare for our friends and luckily Cartagena is a handy alternative. We leave this quaint setting for a three day jaunt to Cartagena. The last ten days are reminders of our second reason for wanting to ship from Cartagena; another opportunity to see Colombia. It is a nice place and its friendly people make you feel welcome. The next three days pass easily and the caribbean coast is steamy,true to itself no matter the season. We arrive in Cartagena and like old pros ...
