Darren Aronofsky is the table

Oscar nominated director Darren Aronofsky directed a pretentious video from Loutallica. You can watch it above…

I honestly don’t know how they got this guy to direct a music video for a song off of LULZ-U, but hey, I guess Darren’s movies focus a lot on psychotic characters, obsession, going crazy — Exactly what I went through while listening to Lulu, so actually, it’s a good fit.

If you haven’t seen his debut film Pi, tough shit, cause I’m gonna spoil it for you. The character drills his head at the end. The only way to get rid of the Lulu sounds, if I’m honest.


Learn how to retail, kid

Love metal and looking to get into the retail industry? Ignore those people that argue “music doesn’t sell” if you wish, but if you want to build a strong clientèle, it’s probably best to adopt an ‘honesty is the best policy’ rule. Just check out JB Hi-Fi‘s supreme retailing skillz.

I wonder how many albums they’d sell with that there?… You’d have to be pretty stupid to buy an album that even the store trying to sell it to you is telling you not to buy it. And yes, my brain does hurt after writing that sentence.


Hide your kids! Video of Loutallica performing is here

I honestly haven’t played that, and I’d advise you not to do it either, but hey, if you’re into this shit.. Go ahead.

Another video after the jump.



Here’s something that totally justifies Lulu

Is that you, Lulu?

Lou Reed and Metallica have tapped (payed huge amount of money to) Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream) to direct a video for Iced Honey.

Wow, holy shit you guys… Everything’s so great again! We totally don’t mind Lulu now.

Seriously though, if anything, his style of directing can only enhance the whatever atmosphere the track has. Which I’m afraid isn’t a good thing. To be honest, I still have to listen to the whole album, but if The View’s anything to go by, then all my joking around is totally justified. Speaking of “justified” I’m off to listen to some real music now.


The Metallica contest no one wants to win

400 unlucky Metallica fans will attend a performance from Lou Reed and Metallica for some radio station in Germany.

Germany gave us a lot of good music, but they also gave us Tokio Hotel, and let’s not forget David Hasselhoff’s music is popular there (so is Limp Bizkit’s), so let’s take their events with a grain of salt.

Anyway, yeah, people will be able to enter a contest to win tickets to the event, but who really wants to, anyway? We can all go to our local nursing homes with a few Metallica instrumentals, and we’re likely to get better music than Lulu.

The concert will be broadcast on 1LIVE and Metallica.de, and after it’s done airing, the recording will be available on LouReedMetallica.com. In other words, you have three sites you have to avoid.

I will do you a huge favor and will not give more details on the gig. You’re welcome.
