The film music was scored by Neil Young, who sings the opening theme, "Home on the Range" accompanied by a harmonica. Variations on "Home on the Range" are played by Young on electric guitar as "Ode to Wild Bill" and by an orchestra with arrangements by David Blumberg on "Buffalo Stomp". Music in the film included rock and R&B songs by Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, The Temptations, the Four Tops and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Additionally, characters played by Bill Murray and Rene Auberjonois sing lyrics from "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".
Where the Buffalo Roam is a 1980 comedy film based on a number of semi-biographical stories written by author Hunter S. Thompson. The film loosely depicts Thompson's rise to fame in the 1970s and his relationship with Chicano attorney and activist Oscar Zeta Acosta
I have never been a big fan of frills ribbons or lace, anything that defines femininity as arrested development. There is something about the literal mockery of the Gothic Lolita child like yet totally erotic elements that turns me off. BUT i do think taken in healthy proportions it can be a very interesting addition to fashion. I found some examples of these healthy measured appropriations that have been subtracted from a bigger landscape of Japanese inflections into a more western frame.

Gothic Lolita or “GothLoli” (ゴスロリ, gosurori) is a fashion particularly popular among Japanese teenagers and young women. It emphasizes Victorian-style girl’s clothing and often aims to imitate the look of Victorian porcelain dolls.
Variations of the Gothic Lolita look include “Classic Lolita” (more traditional clothing) and “Elegant Gothic Lolita” (EGL, which is heavily influenced by gothic fashion). The male analog to this fashion is “Elegant Gothic Aristocrat” (EGA) which shares EGL’s emphasis on the Victorian era, though not on children’s clothing. Gothic Lolita is also influenced by the imagery of more feminine Visual Kei (or “visual rock”) bands. Visual Kei is a Japanese form of pop music where the musical style may vary but defined by bands featuring performers in elaborate costumes.
Dandella (think dandelion) is a GPS-like tracking device. Though it behaves more like a sunflower always point towards the sun, this device lights up & bends towards its direction or other dandella that it's been synchronised with. Easy for finding your friend in a crowded mall, or for parents to keep track of their kids at the mall. The form is kept minimal and humble, likened to holding a flower in the hand. Dandella simplifies the complex interface of current GPS devices to a simple notion of ‘just follow where it points.
Dandella provides an intuitive way to navigate, and find directions by ‘pointing’ to the right way.
This device works with GPS enabled mobile phones to track physical locations. Dandella bends and points toward the targeted location. It can be programmed to track each other, for parent and child to locate one another. Alternatively, it can also be use to find a location base on a particular set of GPS coordinates determined by the
This is the story of a private art installation in a terrace in NYC:
"Designer Lisa Perry and her hedge-fund hubbie Richard live in the luxury apartment, and prior to her 50th birthday she "had only to look out the window for a clue to what [he] had in mind as a gift. [He] gave his wife a ring that is a miniature version of Jeff Koons’s green Diamond, which graces the terrace of their New York penthouse."The first image is Jeff Koons Blue Diamond.
The second and third are images of this private installation.
In the capital of excess it seems extravagance will never go out of style.
Tron the cult series has a new movie.
Of course the new version is not a low tech affair...it has to transport us to a place of pristine perfection where light reigns in perfectly sharp surfaces, a sleek glossy world devoid of the randomness of nature. a place with no dust...
This place seems to be shaped by an orthodoxy of graphic purism where Apollo would have felt at home. Humanity is only present at certain times with all its imperfection and vulnerabilities...
Thanks to Patricia I rediscovered my love for Spanish/Argentinian band Los Rodriguez.Los Rodríguez was a rock band composed by two Spaniards and two Argentines, that played during the 90's.Their music is a fusion of different styles as flamenco, rumba, bolero, ranchera, milonga, funk, blues, and Rolling Stones-style rock.
Magnificent Colombian film in what it is our own musical genre and cultural identity: Vallenato!
"My life's very monotonous," he said.
"I hunt chickens; men hunt me.
All chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike.
And in consequence, I am a little bored.
But if you tame me, it'll be as if the sun came to shine on my life.
I shall know the sound of a step that'll be different from all the others.
Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground.
Yours will call me, like music out of my burrow.
And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder?
I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me.
The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad.
But you have hair that is the color of gold.
Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me!
The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you.
And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat..."
"I was shooting stills of models with long tongues swirling and sucking bakery products from under a pane of glass. I wanted to make enamel paintings along the idea of 'painting with my tongue'. My makeup artist shot some short videos during the shoot just to see how it would look. The low definition videos looked so good that we made plans to do a professional high definition video. This made sense to me as I have made both billboards and produced a commercial advertising a painting show in 1989."

Beautiful and haunting sounds to work by.
“As the soundtrack to a moon landing, the reference posts — from Ride to Spiritualized — are secure for the group’s interstellar sound, as the atmosphere is thicker, the guitars more towering and the catharis more rewarding than seems likely on Planet Earth.” - SPIN
