'We Are All Brad Renfro' - except this guy.

Heidi Montag shows us what Kristeva meant by "The Abject"

From MAXIM: "Yeah, I'm working on an album, but it's not like with most pop artists, where they have a song sent to them that has nothing to do with their emotions or lives. It's all about me and my life. I'm taking my time to make sure it's a CLASSIC. I don't want to be the next pop person who's in and out. I want to be like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Stevie Wonder - all the greats."

THE ABJECT, abjection (Kristeva): Our reaction (horror, vomit) to a threatened breakdown in meaning caused by the loss of the distinction between subject and object or between self and other. The primary example is the corpse (which traumatically reminds us of our own materiality); however, other items can elicit the same reaction: the open wound, sewage, even a particularly immoral crime.

What ARE we talking about?

The eternal debate, "practice" or "playoffs," a conversation between Allen Iverson and Jim Mora:

The Year of the Panda Bear

It really was the year of the Panda.

Now that Pitchfork has named Panda Bear's "Person Pitch" the "Album of the Year," it should be noted that Cosmodrome predicted this SUBCONSCIOUSLY by posting about panda bears a total of five times in the year 2007, making it the most talked about subject this year, besides Daft Punk.

So here they are for you, our retrospective prophesy confirmed!

How Errol Morris Writes A Letter

I hope he uses these when paying his rent or cable bill.

Also of note: Errol Morris' head-spinning, three-week, 250,000+ word blog about two similar cannonball-laden Crimean War images was so popular that:
"If you add the readers' comments to Morris' own writing, you get a word count of about 223,000, which—just to put it in perspective—is slightly longer than Moby-Dick."

Moby's Liberal Guilt + Philip Glass's Talent = PERFECTO!

As Hollywood writers strike in the name of their intellectual property, electro-Democrat Moby has decided to work in overdrive to make his intellectual property available to filmmakers who normally wouldn't be able to afford it.

Here, you will find 40-someodd songs that Moby has composed and recorded for independent filmmakers to yank for free. (He only asks for a small fee, should the movie make any money, to be donated to a charity of his choice.)

The problem with this equation: who wants a film score composed by Moby? I mean, besides every corporate manufacturer known to man.

If only Philip Glass had a bleeding heart...
Or Alexandre Desplat...
Imagine a film shot on digi-8 aligned to the goth-operatics of Elfman...

Baby steps.
