Happy Valentine’s Day from The Flaming Lips

They love everyone. Including blobs.

In addition to Radiohead announcing a new album, The Flaming Lips have released their newest creation for free on the world today. It’s called “Two Blobs Fucking” (no, really) and it’s available in 12 parts at this YouTube channel (also really). Like “Zaireeka,” the parts are intended to be played simultaneously, as it was “created specifically for iPhone-type devices.” So if you’ve got 11 friends with iPhones/Droids, you should all definitely get together and have a “Two Blobs Fucking” party (um, Happy Valentine’s Day?).

Also, this can only mean one thing: Get ready for the largest cell phone choir ever at this year’s New Year’s Eve Freakout. Like, Guinness World Records-style. Make it happen, Wayne.

As for how it sounds, it’s difficult to tell when you can only listen to one part at a time, but it seems to continue on the experimental, demented weirdness of “Embryonic.” Track 9 is Wayne’s voice, and he’s talking instead of singing. Track 7 is the drum track, and it’s pretty cool and complex. There are a lot of weird synths; mega-heavy guitars play on most, if not all, of the tracks around the 1:15 mark. In short, it’s a Flaming Lips song.

Apparently there’s a lot more where this came from, and it’s promised to be released in unusual ways. Did we expect any less?

Extreme hobbies

That body spray is hot. Really, really hot.

Drinking, sex, fast cars … these hazards have been around since the beginning of time. (Or, at least since the great family musical “Grease.”) Apparently eager to provide fresh content for the Darwin Awards, young whippersnappers have found a new rebellion: setting themselves afire!

Adios, muchacho

Let’s send off OKS veteran Stephen Carradini with some rad music vids.

And with that, I give you the song he loves more than most any in the whole, wide world:



Here’s one that buzzing across the blogosphere today: St. Vincent covering the heck out of ol’ Tom Waits. Astute fans of St. V’s (better known as Annie Clark) know this is far from the most exciting cover song she’s ever played. Also, she was born in my hometown and I have a Tulsa Driller-sized crush on her, in the interest of full disclosure:



Chapel Hill indie guitar legends Superchunk tossed a new/old video our way this week for the classic “Learn to Surf.” Let’s just say that their stage presence has neither increased nor decreased since 1998, nor have they apparently learned any new moves. How's that for consistency?



Not technically a music video, but it does feature OKC native Blake Griffin and former Sooner bulldozer Adrian Peterson, and is absolutely hilarious. That is, if you can stand Seth Meyer’s annoyingly glib grinning that introduces it:

damn!

Looks 'Damn' good

Not ‘Winnebago Man’ good, but still, good.

One new-to-DVD/VOD documentary I’m interested in checking out is “Damn!” It’s not about my favorite expletive, but YouTube sensation Jimmy McMillan.

The founder of the political party known as Rent Is Too Damn High, the 64-year-old New York gubernatorial candidate McMillan seems like quite the character, being a Vietnam vet, black belt karate master, former stripper and 1970s soul singer. He became famous when his televised appearance on the 2010 debates went viral, with more than 2 million views in 24 hours.

A screener’s supposedly coming our way, so expect a review before too long. In the meantime, check out these three deleted scenes from the doc. In the first, he shares a sexual secret; in the second, he demonstrates “verbal judo”; and in the third, he shares his love for Eminem, marijuana and his favorite movie, which is ... um, “Deep Throat.” —Rod Lott

Dead Sea Choir showed up in Norman with new material two weekends ago to remind everybody that they are, indeed, totally awesome. And thanks to YouTube user BossHossV8Cycles, you, too, may experience what they’ve been cooking up lately. Enjoy.



You can download the band's first album, "Thin One the Red One" at their website, for free.
