LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR HOT AIR









so i had mentioned having my fill of fake blood this weekend. well now you can see what i was talking about. an entire day of editing later, here are the stills from the Matt & Kim video shoot. yep. there was a lot of blood, a lot of booze, a lot of raging on slippery floors in a fake kitchen, and even a whole lot of dying (in a big smelly heap). . . it was pretty sweet. sucks that you missed it. but at least you can see a slight hint of what it would have been like to be there. . . enjoy.

MP3:

hi. how ya doin'? good? good. so, may i blow your mind? yeah? cool. listen to this. and i should mention it was released in 1971. that would be a year after Black Sabbath put out their first album. oh, and it's from japan. oh, and Flower Travellin' Band also covered bands like Sabbath, King Crimson, and the Animals. in 1970 (on their album "Anywhere"). that's the same year Sabbath recorded their first album, and this band was already covering them. from japan. kinda crazy huh? well i'll let you get back to listening to the song. just remember, 1971. but don't hurt yourself.
