Best Animated Video Ever?


FLAIRS – TRUCKERS DELIGHT from 3rd Side Records on Vimeo.

A while ago we wrote about the . The list, we are sorry to say was WRONG. That is, the list is wrong now. Because of the quite amazing 16-bit meets Robert Crumb video for Flairs – Truckers Delight. Funny and quite ridiculous, it is amazing.

The song is quite good too.



It’s no secret we’re video game geeks at DownTuned. It’s also no secret that we enjoy the odd bit of metal too. So when these two forces of not-getting-a-girlfriend combine there is usually an awesome result. In this case it’s a brutal death metal cover of the castle music from Super Mario Bros. It made me smile.

NewsGush: Egypt vs Beyonce



Pop overlord Beyonce recently visited Egypt where she was given a tour of the Pyramids and the Sphinx by the county’s leading Egyptologist Zahi Hawass. Unfortunately they did not become friends and go on action packed adventures, pursued by a mummy through scenic locations. Hawass is quoted as saying…

I showed her the Sphinx and I gave her book on King Tutankhamen…She’s a stupid person and she doesn’t understand a thing and she doesn’t want to understand. She’s coming here to take pictures and that’s it.

In my mind he added…

Those who insult the treasures of the Pharaohs, there will be judgment…an end shall be made for her… Anubis shall seize her neck like a bird… He shall cast the fear of himself  into her.

Alan Moore Vs Damon Albarn



What do you get if you cross the singer from an indie band, an artist and a seminal writer who worships a Roman sock puppet? Obviously it’s an opera!

The creative team behind Gorillaz and the Monkey Kung Fu opera-thing – Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett – have recruited Comic book supremo, owner of an amazing beard, and general man of mystery Alan Moore to collaborate on their next operatic project. It should at least be very interesting.

And a million times better than Bonio’s Spider-Man musical.
