Kobe/LeBron: The MVPuppets

If you've been watching this year's NBA playoffs then surely you've caught Nike's hilarious new ad campaign starring the MVP of last year, Kobe Bryant, and the current MVP, LeBron James...both in muppet form. The debate will rage on and on about which player is better but one thing's for sure, they're both great together, take a gander below at the MVPuppets:

Bat For Lashes

DL: Two Suns
Buy: Amazon

"Two Suns" is Natasha Khan, a.k.a. Bat For Lashes' follow up to her 2006 debut "Fur & Gold." I haven't been able to stop listening to the first single: "Daniel" for the last couple of months.

Here's the video for "Daniel."

...and here she is performing it live on the Late Show with David Letterman

Be Kind Rewind.

I was playing remote control roulette the other day out of boredom and landed in the middle of writer/director Michel Gondry's entertaining and delightful 2008 film: "Be Kind Rewind," and decided to watch it again. The movie revolves around Mike, played by Mos Def, who helps runs Mr. Fletcher's (Danny Glover) video store which is in danger of being foreclosed. Jack Black plays Jerry, Mike's friend and nuisance whom after a freak accident becomes magnetized and inadvertently ends up erasing every VHS in the video store which sets up the movie's premise: Mike and Jerry must remake or "swede" the movies in the store to appease and stall the customers before Mr. Fletcher finds out, however they end up becoming the biggest stars in their neighborhood and soon everyone wants to be a part of the "sweding."

The "sweded" movies are the most fun part of the entire film as Michel Gondry employs clever camera tricks to make creative low-fi special effects, here's a sampling:
Rush Hour 2 Sweded Version

Ghostbusters Sweded Version

When the movie was originally released, they had a section on their official site which allowed fans to upload their own "sweded" movies. Here's my favorite so far:
300 Fan-Swede
