David Byrne/ Santigold sings about Imelda Marcos

I saw this on Ed Zipcos website Superchief.

David Byrne:
“There are six of these videos that have been completed for this project. Most, like this one, use news and archival footage to, well, show that every word of the song is true! Most of the lyrics on this one are lifted gently from interviews and quotations — the “please don’t” chorus especially. At some point as first lady, Imelda began to feel that she could help Philippine interests by charming world leaders into seeing things her way. “Handbag diplomacy” she called it — as she liked to imply that to solve a problem, she could bypass President Marcos and just grab a handbag and hop on a plane with some of her assistants. It sometimes worked! There was, for example, an Islamic-backed insurgency rising in the south of the Philippine archipelago, and she thought that a leader in that part of the world, Qaddafi in this case, might help pull the plug on that support if he saw things her way. Apparently he did — the funding stopped and the insurrection lost momentum, and she later described him as a pushover, a mama’s boy.”

Philly, Philly pines and Japan

These pictures were taken last November and December 2009. They were taken at Philadelphia, Philippines and Japan respectively.


Can't say no to that

It was just a small piece.

Penis symbol

I keep seeing this around Philly. Nic Cage should investigate this.




Slackers


Pet Ferret. Like the Beastmaster.

Jollibee is the Philippine Mcdonalds

I feel whiter and gay.

Pac man is the new Ali.




Armin Van Buren was djing there.

Japanese Anime plane instructions are awesome.


This is what Japanese tempura looks like in Japan.


Your kid watches you while you poop.






It automatically replaces the butt plastic cover. Very convenient.
The traditional Japanese toilet.

Kathryn Bigelow

So Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman director to won an Oscar for this movie:

Highly recommended. I think this is the first Iraq war movie that I really liked. Well aside from Three Kings

She also directed that cult classic Point Break. Loved this also.

Johnny Utah and Bodhi

Then Strange Days which was a decent Blade Runner knockoff.

Near Dark was a good vampire film. Before Twilight there was this. It stars that guy from Big Love.


Anyway, yeah Kathryn...


She used to be a painter.

She was once married to James Cameron who was also nominated for best director for Avatar. This was almost like a plot for a romantic comedy starring Sandra Bullock or something.

You go girl
