And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it’s them
Instead of you
I’m sure most of you remember this song, the one that kicked off years of “Something-or-other-Aid” singles and concerts…
Apparently that song has not, uh, lived out its lifespan just yet. Totally swiped from Ace Of Spades HQ –
Supposedly — this sounds made-up to me, but whatever, supposedly — someone’s making a movie called Do They Know It’s Murder?
The premise is this: at the recording of Band Aid’s charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?, a fellow Brit rocker (or hanger-on) is murdered.
To make sure the single is finished without incident, Bob Geldof must suddenly put his detective skills to use — you know, I guess maybe he actually solved the case of the girl who shot up the school in I Hate Mondays or some bullshit — and find the killer before they lose the studio space.
If that’s real, I’ll totally see it.
If that’s a punking — well played.
To quote birthmoviesdeath.com –
We need to make peace with the fact that this film will most likely have an entire ensemble of actors made-up to look like ‘80s Brit pop stars. Oh, and one of those recognizable ’80s musicians is getting murdered?
Folks, I give you my most anticipated film of the decade.
I have no idea if this is real. But if this hellspawned monstrosity of awful tastelessness and wrecking-not-very-cherished-song-memories-from-the-80s is real, they have my ticket money.
I got me some Cherry Coke Zero and this tweet from theOne&OnlyExpert at Ace Of Spades HQ –

It’s well into the month and I haven’t Rocktobered once. Things have been hectic here at the station…. nothing really wrong, just very busy. However, in the spirit of lateness, here is some late night music –
And now a word from our sponsors and totally random celebrities, including two notorious for keeping late nights –
And now an obscure import to comply with the 4 A.M. public affairs broadcasting regulations –

Streaming City Pop classics 24/7! Come with us on an endless drive through the streets of Japan while listening to over 30 hours worth of the best City Pop records from the 80s. Travel back in time through the haze of memories that aren’t your own, and melodies frozen in a particular place in history.
It’s been running for almost 2 weeks now. There’s a live chat on the sidebar, if you want to discuss City Pop music or ask questions about it. The playlist is randomized and updated weekly. There’s also a donate link, if you like what you hear. The driving video is kind of neat to watch (no, not the cheeky pic in the thumbnail, a real vid), I’m not sure how long it runs before looping back to the start.
I have seen a lot of weird movies/comics/music videos/what-have-you. Stuff made on weapons-grade drugs. Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol. Die Antwoord. The criminally terrible After Last Season. But I can honestly say that this has blown it out bigger and madder than almost anything I’ve ever seen before.
It’s so insane that the video can’t be played outside of its native YouTube.
I have NO idea what’s going on in the second sequence, but I want to see that movie. The guy on the plane like some kind of inverted hood ornament looks like it might be some kind of Flash-inspired thing. And the catapults….
Bollywood kills it. Hollywood isn’t producing anything anywhere near this imaginative and insane. Someone get these guys to Hollywood with an unlimited budget.
