That is, if you can even make it through them the first time (for some, I couldn’t.)
Some rules before I start listing them off: these had to be films I actually saw. That rules out most Japanese gore-porn titles. Why? Because, while I’m sure I’ll never want to see them again, they just have no inherent cultural value to pique my interest in the first place. You cannot tell me that ‘Men Behind the Sun’ has any redeeming value. Which is not to say I’d ever censor it if when I run the world, but just that I’d never personally choose to watch something of that nature. Second, they had to be films that – true to the title – I’ve never watched again. In the interest of honesty and all.
It turns out that some of these are terrific films, films I would recommend to everyone if I thought anyone had the stomach for them. But, on a good conscience, it’s just difficult to suggest something that might make someone hate you for quite a while, so I’m shaping this in the mold of a dare instead of a recommendation.
See the list after the jump.
if someone were to present me with the hypothetical situation where i’m sequestered on a Lost island in Tunisia or somewhere and could only bring 1 cd and 1 dvd it would be Alice in Chains Unplugged, the CD and DVD
this shit is so hard. alice in chains was the best. haven’t really listened to the new lineup with the black guy replacing Layne (rip Damn he looks so fucked up in this video too). you might not be into grunge, but the rhythm section is undeniable on this one. listening to this song reminds me of recklessly weaving through Laurel Canyon in a Land Rover the first time i was in LA. no one has invented speakers loud enough for this yet
enjoy, give it a chance. so many classics on that record too. Jar of Flies is my shit too
Or at least maybe, but who cares – it’s the weekend!
Anyway, it’s been a helluva week for my favorite artists releasing new material. First, it was Bear Colony. This evening, I received my pre-order of Electric President’s third album, The Violent Blue. Unfamiliar? Check out my Mos Defferson spotlight first then.
On a first listen of the new album, it’s amazing how Ben Cooper and Alex Kane have refined their craft as their discography continues. Songs off their first album (S/T) were really good, but definitely a little sloppy (of course, in my opinion, that was half the fun.) Their sound has just evolved so damn much between then and now, though. And that’s all you can really ask of artists you enjoy, right? That they keep advancing their work and manage to ward off complacency.
I’m most definitely falling asleep to this track tonight, which meshes nicely with the two hours of Bioshock 2 I just played. Please, if you enjoy, consider buying the album. Pre-orders are already sold out, so you won’t be grabbing one of those sweet terrifying monster/bear shirts, but I’m assuming more album orders will be ready to go sometime in the next week.
Electric President – the ocean floor
And as a bonus, because I like you all so much, I’ll throw in another favorite from the album with a far more awake sound:
Electric President – safe and sound
Don’t text me until 3pm, world. Peace.
exceptional mixtape for valentine’s day from LA bass mad geniuses nguzunguzu. no idea how that’s pronounced, but it sounds good yo. dedicated to the timeless Art of Noise song of the same name

obviously eagerly anticipating this release. been a fan from the beginning. i’ll never forget when they came through with the Rhythm Roots All-Stars and the tour bus said “Little Brotha” on it haha. people aren’t “listening”
sad that it’s the culmination of what i consider a modern classic hip hop group, but phontigallo and rapper pooh will surely deliver in the future. not to mention the homey 9th Wondra. make me hot P!
this just in time for Valentine’s Day. maybe it’s time to put this pussy on your sideburns (c) Minaj
