Tray Chaney - Fatherhood
Tray's known for his role as 'Poot in The Wire.
Not the best track, but a great message and he's got style.

Foster the people - Call it what you want
Sticks to the ear and they've got another strangely fun video.

Cat Power - Troubled waters
Just wow.

 L'Xtrmst - La treme
In a strange way this reminds me of Corvus Corax. Love it.

School is cool - Warpaint
Another cool song from School is cool.
I keep thinking this is a song by Warpaint which is also well worth checking out btw.

Marco Z - I'm a bird
A bit poppy, but it sticks and it has a fun video

Broodlord cheering

It's a metal model and there aren't many poses you can put it in without cutting up so much that it might've been easier to just scratch build it. This is the basic pose in which you glue it if you don't cut up ánything.

It's a kind of a roar/cheer pose. I'm working on another version but this one's 90% done. Just some small touch ups on the lower arms. I've used the talon arms from the genestealer frame since I ordered this one from e-bay and it didn't have it's normal set of talons with it.
I'll get some better pics up soon together with the other but this'll have to do for today.

Youtube saturday 21st of January 2012

Le Le - Neen
Solo project from one of the guys of De jeugd van tegenwoordig. 'Neen, laat maar zitten' translates loosely as 'no, nevermind (whatever)'. Brilliantly simple video, so don't use 'I don't speak Dutch' as an excuse not to check the video.

Pogo - Jaaam (The Fresh Prince remix)
Another ingenious collage of sounds. If you don't know Pogo yet, also check his track 'Upular'.

Aduke - Hear the voice
A song made around the Occupy movement in Nigeria. It puts things in perspective looking at poverty, hunger and safety. Starts after 18-19 seconds.

Tim Bendzko - Nur Noch Kurz Die Welt Retten
I think it's the first time a German song got featured here.It's from around May 2011. He sings that he'll be with his girl soon, right after he saved the world (which shouldn't take too long). Even if you don't understand German, you'll get the feeling.

Jónsi - Gathering stories
Dreamy music with a really cool video.
And since it's not new music by far, but cool to check out, I'd just say, check the songs of the Jimmy Castor Bunch in the Originals section of 22tracks. Weird and funny.

Youtube saturday 14th of January 2012

This youtube saturday is filled with strange video's which are well worth watching and not just listening to in the background.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic zeros - Desert song
It's worth pulling through the first minute (either that or skipping it).

Goldfish - We come together

Gotye - Hearts a mess
There's a familiar sample in there but I don't know where from..
Another cool video to a beautiful melancholic track.

Lissie - Cuckoo
A bit sweet, but it sticks.

Dangermouse and Daniele Luppi ft Jack White (and Norah Jones?) - Two against one 
It's been out since May 2011, but I'm not sure if I heard it before. Didn't see the clip before and it's well
worth watching.

Apollo 440 - A deeper dub 
A cover from Clivillés and Cole's 1991 original version "Pride (A Deeper Love). It's been a while since I heard anything from Apollo 440, good to know they're still around.

Avicii - The new day (2012 edit)
An energetic bit of dance music.

Szabó Balázs - Azt gondoltam ...
Don't ask me how to pronounce it or what it's about, but it sounds sad. A Hungarian friend of mine linked it
on facebook, so it's probably Hungarian (also the spelling hints at that..)

T.I. ft Dr Dre - Popped off
It's Dre!

Florence + The Machine - No Light, No Light
Just an awesome band.

Zoanthrope (s) January 2012

In early december I posted a basecoated zoanthrope and somewhere in the end of december 2011 I finished it. Since I had three older Zoanthropes I thought I'd take some pictures of those too.

Click to enlarge (opens new window) and or click through the photobucket to see other beasties.


The new one is made of resin and has to be straigthened out a bit...

The other 3 in the picture are made of metal
