Xeni on Rachel Maddow Show: Ralph Lauren's Photoshop of Horrors

maddow.jpgRachel Maddow did a segment on her always-superb show tonight about Ralph Lauren's recent bogus legal threats against various blogs -- including this one. Those DMCAs sent by lawyers for Lauren demanded the removal of a badly photoshopped ad which morphed a model into a lollipop-headed stick figure. The Rachel Maddow Show segment is embedded above, and is also here: Photoshop of Horrors.

P.S.: And here's Rob on ABC's Nightline. No embed, unfortunately!

GRISTLEISM: Throbbing Gristle's unusual new "box set"

Gristleism-hand-900pix_thumb.jpg

Richard Metzger writes:

When Boing Boing’s Xeni Jardin and I interviewed Throbbing Gristle in Los Angeles, during the sound-check we were talking to Charlie Poulet, TG’s brilliant sound engineer. There was an insanely trippy song coming over the PA system and I asked him what it was. “Oh, THAT. That is a Buddha Machine—ever hear of one?”

A Buddha Machine is a little plastic box that resembles a cheap transistor radio. It has a built-in speaker and runs continuous tape loops of chanting or soothing, natural, trippy, etc, sounds. They are hipster remakes of the Tibetan prayer loop boxes (they’re ubiquitous all over China) and are manufactured by a company called FM3.

Charlie was running several of them at once to create the amazing sound-scape going on in the background as we spoke. A little while later, Chris Carter hinted that soon TG would be announcing a “special musical project” that involved no CD or MP3s whatsoever. I suspected at the time he was hazily describing something similar to a Buddha Machine. TG-stylee and I was right. Check it out!

Metzger has details here on Dangerous Minds. You can order your very own GRISTLEISM here.

BB Video Notes: Mighty Boosh at Roxy (video stills)

The Mighty Boosh, Roxy, July 28 2009

Here's a hastily-uploaded set of video stills from the Boing Boing Video shoot of The Mighty Boosh (Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt, Dave Brown, Michael Fielding, and Rich Fulcher) performing live at the Roxy on Sunset tonight. We'll be publishing a little mini-documentary about the Boosh's voyage to Hollywood next week, but I thought these quick snaps would be fun to share now. The show was a lot of fun, and all those trufans lined up for blocks, many in character costumes? Pretty amazing to witness.

Boing Boing Video shoot: The Mighty Boosh

A quick set of snaps from today's Boing Boing Video shoot in Hollywood with Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding of The Mighty Boosh.

We'll be bringing you the video interview soon, and it includes a spontaneous and very special Boing Boing crimp, courtesy of Messrs. Fielding and Barratt. But it was so much fun, I had to share the personal snaps now.

Our crew for this shoot: the lovely Tara McGinley (above, with me and los del Boosh), the inimitable Richard Metzger, Eric Mittleman, Señor Ehrich Blackhound, and Mr. David "Simpsons" Silverman.

Barratt and Fielding are visiting the US to promote the release of all three seasons of their hit BBC show on DVD (their show is also on Adult Swim now, in the asscrack timeslot of 1am on Sundays, which really ought to be corrected). They're playing an intimate gig tonight for some 500 fans at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. They are huge huge huge in the UK, and as a friend also said, I hope they find the audience they deserve here in the states. That seems inevitable, though, and well under way.

As I began this blog post, I started typing "I am their biggest fan in the world," but that's demonstrably not true. Let us say this: I am their biggest fan among the subset of fans who are not willing to dress up as Tony Harrison, don Bollo drag, or perform amateur crimping in public. Among the fans who will not attempt these things, yes, I am surely the most ardent.

Noel Fielding's reenactment of Joe Jackson's "Look Sharp" album cover.At left, from the shoot -- as Metzger put it: "Noel Fielding's reenactment of Joe Jackson's 'Look Sharp! ' album cover."

Boing Boing Video snaps: The Mighty Boosh (@ Flickr, mostly shot by Tara, special thanks to S. Weiner, A. Carlson, and @MightyBooshDVD.)

You really ought to buy the DVDs. Just trust me on this one:
* The Mighty Boosh: The Complete Season 1
* The Mighty Boosh: Season 2
* The Mighty Boosh: Season 3
