NME has published an interview with the surviving members of Joy Division on the 40th anniversary of their masterwork, Unknown Pleasures:
Vinyl Factory has also an article on the surviving band members request for modern directors to create music videos for the songs from Unknown Pleasures - the first one created and available is for "I Remember Nothing" (embeds are not allowed for this video, so you'll have to click through):
"New Order will return this autumn with their first album in over a decade, Music Complete.
Largely produced by the band themselves, with a couple of tracks of helmed by The Chemical Brothers Tom Rowlands, Music Complete features vocals from Brandon Flowers, Iggy Ppop and La Roux.
The first track to be unveiled from the album, however, is a straight-up New Order offering titled Restless, which finds the group contemplating life in the modern world. The single will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally on October 9, while Music Complete is out on September 25 on CD, download and limited edition clear vinyl. There will also be an eight-piece deluxe vinyl collection including the album plus extended versions of all 11 tracks on coloured vinyl."
I seem to remember watmm being all over this and the codex seraphinianus some time ago, being the two most incomprehensible lengthy illustrated manuscripts of history. The codex seraphinianus is a fabrication by a 80s artist, and this one was always suspected to be a 15th or 16th century elaborate troll in a similar vein...
I guess we shouldn't be holding our breaths for a full decoded version anytime soon, but this still made me excited.
Norte Dame star and NFL draft prospect has made-up a story about an imaginary girlfriend who died of leukemia. He says it was a prank on him, and ND is backing him for now.
Personally, I think it was Catfish hoax on him that he was embarrassed to acknowledge, so he lied, it snowballed, and he ended up claiming she died. The media covered this for months, Deadspin mentioned on the news that 5 separate major news outlets reported 5 completely different dates of her death and no one ever doubted the story.
It's like Fight Club with a shitty Nicolas Sparks + Rudy plot and Catfish plot-twist. Oh well, until the whole story comes out, let the memes begin...
