Somebody in Oregon Sure Loves Hayao Miyazaki

Just a l'il.

Just a l’il.

Oregon’s department of tourism called “Travel Oregon” came out with a promotional video a couple of weeks ago. It’s animated, and hoo-boy, do the people who made this love themselves some of Hayao Miyazaki’s (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro) body of work. It’s pretty spectacular; take a look!

Here are some more stills from the video:

Tha's a big bunny, judge.

Here I am talking about an advertisement, and Oregon didn’t even pay me to do it! Way to go, gang. That’s how you do viral content. Anyway, I wanna watch it again. SO CAN YOU!

Some other folks, too.

This Saturday, March 24th, Mosey on over to Georgetown (SOSODO (South of South of Downtown) and catch a foot-stompin’ good show with our good friends, the brothers Cortese of Electric NoNo, as they put on what the kids these days call “a show” (I’m 40 years old, I have no idea what the kids these days call things).

Here’s an official Electric NoNo video. Partake and enjoy!

Also at the show will be Stereo Creeps (I’ve heard of them, but I’ve never heard them) and Suitcase (neither).

DANG SHAME! DANG SHAME!

Well, it looks like we’re outta luck when it comes to the full collection, pardner (get it, “pardner” because this is a cowboy-themed post I’ll shut up now). But we CAN still get the sampler CD, which has five full amazing songs on it:

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: Sammus & Open Mike Eagle Collaborations

Mike Eagle and Sammus are friends! They also guest on each other’s musics!

First off is the absolutely hilarious video for Mike’s “Hymnal (feat. Sammus),” which features an amazing verse from Sammus that only has one vowel-sound in its rhyming scheme. You’ll see:

Next up is Sammus’s “Qualified (feat. Open Mike Eagle and Arch Thompson).” In case you were wondering, yes, Sammus did name herself in honor of Samus Aran, the heroine of the Metroid series of video games. Some of her albums have names like M’other Brain, Prime, and Another M (which is a concept album that “takes listeners on a journey from Samus’ lonely childhood with the Chozo race to her epic battle against the evil Mother Brain”). Pretty amazingly nerdy stuff, though that isn’t so upfront in this song. But just take a listen to the jazz flute in it!

GOOD STUFF
