Byrne & Eno’s My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is being re-released on April 11. Remastered, additional tracks, new art, etc. Possibly of interest to all you knob twiddlers, they are making tracks of the original available for download under a Creative Commons license.
I’m not sure how I feel about the additional tracks, but a less-publicised part of the rerelease is that they have either deleted or renamed the track Q’ran. Maybe Dave & Brian don’t want fatwahs issued against them or something. I know exactly how I feel about the fact this album came out 25 years ago – it makes me feel old!

A new documentary showing how centuries of religious art contains 666′s and satan heads all over the freaking place! OMFG! All you have to do is isolate little parts of pieces of art, rotate them and look at them out of context, and um, use your imagination.
I don’t know what’s funniest about it; the metal-album artwork and typography, the animations of bits of art suddenly turning into vaguely face-like shapes, the assertion that it represents a centuries-old plot by the Catholic Church, or the total lack of actual information anywhere on the site. Its almost worth adding an “insane Christians” category just for this. I expected to see “based on a book by Jack Chick” at the end of the trailer.

Fuck you in the butthole all day long,
take your clothes off and leave your fanny pack on.
the streets of Paris, at a blur. In the name of l’amore.
Filmed in 1976, the revered short film by seminal French director Claude Lelouch is regarded as the ultimate in chase scenes – the connoisseurs’ trump card in response to “Bullitt” or “The French Connection”.
Absolutely compulsive – this astonishing, exhilarating and now legendary drive through a beautiful 70s Paris with its surprise ending is shrouded in myths.5 comments
