Things You Might Be Missing v1

A Film By Takashi Miike
Now usually I am not into whats "in" at the moment. Young kids these days like their Souljah Boy, Air Force Ones, and 5 Gum. They also love them some Asian horror movies. Well in the case of Takashi Miike's fine film, one could say it accidentally started the trend. The way I came up on this film was sort of by accident. With nothing else on the tele, I stumbled onto Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments. It does not matter what number this was slotted in, what does matter is that a scary S.O.B. like Rob Zombie, confessed this was "disturbing" to watch. That's like B-Real pointing at a Marijuana Plant and telling you never to smoke it because he thinks it's too strong. You owe it to yourself to watch it, future emotional trauma aside. The movie will start like a Romantic Comedy, but don't let that fool you. Watch it all the way through.

Tokyo Police Club
These dudes are from Canada, can give a shit if they are making sense
when singing, and replicate arcade synthesizers from the 70's
for no apparent reason on any of their tracks. TPC has been around
for some years now, but thankfully they have not fully blown up yet.
Think of them as the equivalent of Portishead, Interpol or even
Ghostface; you know they kick ass but the rest of the world is yet to
catch on. So before your mom is talking about them in a new soda
commercial, discover them now! If you need further convincing, I ask
you to name a band with the guts to perform on Letterman with a
drum setup like the one found on the second video below (1:55).
Dude is still saving for the rest of the set.
