Silent Halloween 1939

Square America just uploaded this great little silent home video from someone’s Halloween dinner party in 1939. It’s very cute- the final shot is the best! Hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween weekend. I’m going here to see Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham) perform, and I’m looking forward to it.

The costumes in this video are amazing. This was directed by the Glue Society, and the track itself was produced on a Nintendo DSi!

Vintage find: Sears Com/Trek IV

Found this sexy thang at a thrift store yesterday.  I’m in love.  It works like a dream, it’s portable, there’s a place to stick earphones in (which kind of cracks me up), and you could stick batteries in it and take it to the park. Oh yeah, and it’s covered in faux woodgrain and metal.

Music Video: Marcel Dzama for Department of Eagles

Department of Eagles premiered their new Patrick Daughters and Marcel Dzama directed video for the single “No One Does It Like You” on March 25th at MoMA.  It’s like watching Dzama’s paintings come to life.  Check it out.  The song is good too!

Bodies of Water: Under the Pines music video

My good friends over at Bodies of Water just sent over a link to their music video for “Under the Pines” which was a long time in the making.  *Warning there is some fake violence and gore.*  Click on the image below for a link to the hi-res version of the video.  It’s been pulled, so the image will just take you to YouTube… sorry.
