Announcing the Apple iProduct:

Do you like Apple products? Do you live for every product announcement, every incremental upgrade, every rumor and fake screenshot? Do you wank and blare and drone and fucking gurgle about Apple products morning, noon, and night? Then get ready for iProduct. You’ll be blown away. No matter what it is.

Apple iProduct. You’ll buy it. And you’ll like it.

Funny and also very true…

I recently noticed that my webhost SDF is hosting the site for an upcoming Australian independent movie called The Illustrated Family Doctor. This is the first I’ve heard of this one, and it looks really promising.

It has a suitably absurd storyline, and features the acting of Samuel Johnson, known from the excellent Aussie TV series The Secret Life of Us, who seems to fit the role of a hypochondriac office worker quite nicely.

The movie is due in Australian cinemas on March 3, but probably won’t make it to Norwegian screens for a seriously long time, but it will surely make the festival circuit, and I’ll try to get a hold of it on DVD once it’s released…

The always brilliant Boom Selection has put M.I.A. and Diplo’s new collaborative mixtape Piracy Funds Terrorism vol.1 available for download. 21 songs, just under 60 minutes of pure mixtape madness.

The quality of the mixes is top notch as always, a sort of screwed up hybrid of current hip-hop, electro, grime, mash-ups and more, with MIA’s vocal stylings over it all. Pitchfork Media has a review and also rates it the 12th best album of 2004 in its yearly review. And rightly so, as mixes go things don’t get much better than this… As always – get it while it’s hot!

There’s also the latest Radio 1 essential mix from those hard-working Soulwax guys available as a torrent (~170MB ogg, 120 mins). Fantastic stuff.

Oh, and a Happy New Year to all by the way!
