(the trailer as posted above displays a more hollywood-alike-posi setting than the overall vibe of the documentary itself. go watch the full thing, it’s impressive)

-

i just watched this incredible documentary called 'bully' (2011), about three kids in high- and middle school who are victims of being bullied. besides that this doc. shows the tragic story and background of these kids, it also exposes how a failing school system (in the sense of ‘doing something against bullying’) simply ruin these kids’ lives. these three cases in iowa and oklahoma - but i guess this can be projected on any high school in any state or country - show how unaware schools are handling this immense problem, by simply doing nothing or looking the other way. this, in combination w/ the innocent and insecure attitude of these kids (look at one of the main persons followed in this documentary, alex libby), makes these boys and girl simply a weak and easy target. the makers of ‘bully’ documented all the participants in this case very well, both the victims and the school boards (which in my opinion could are presented slightly ‘soft’, since they are the core of the problem) and hopefully make the viewers aware of the stuff that’s going on behind closed school doors.

it made/makes me really fucking sad.

  • the full version of ‘bully’  w/ dutch sub- and intertitles can be watched here via uitzendinggmist.nl. a version in english can be watched here i guess.

trent reznor must be one of the coolest guys ever. i just stumbled upon some old nin tracks - a band which i used to listen to a lot when i was thirteen/fourteen or so - and his complex yet catchy yet extremely dark compositions are simply extraordinary good.

wolf grey | the birds


a new track from my band called ‘the birds’ is now listenable via youtube and downloadable (for free) at bandcamp. wolf grey is a duo from utrecht & amsterdam/nl that combines experimental dark electronic music w/ screamo and shoegaze influences. the live set is supported by visuals which are ‘telling the story behind the music’. 

we don’t really fit in one kind of genre, but if you’re willing to check out new experimental music, give it a shot! plus if you like what you hear, please share this post.

it’s too early to make ‘best-records-of-the-year-lists’  right? anyway, ny’s self acclaimed ‘pretty boy’ did an awesome job on releasing a record which is going to be in mine definitely.
a short write up; the s/t song 'longlivea$ap' is a great example of the dark/purple/paranoid vibe a$ap creates in his songs. i’ve aways been a fan of clams casino’s work, but the crystal castles-esque, bitcrushed main sample in 'lvl' is def. one of my favourites. worth mentioning is the track ‘ghetto symphony’  where a ominious range of strings (sampled from the song ‘psychobabble’ by frou frou) creates a very ‘impending’ vibe. songs as - a young classic - 'goldie', 'fucking problems' and the not very lyrical but very catchy 'pmw' (pussy/money/weed) are instant bangers, just like the track with ‘his niggah skrillex’ (not my words) called 'wild for the night', in which the dubstep producer for one time didn’t use his typical growling bassdrops, but uses more of a dub (the original genre)-ish composition. a very outstanding track, which is in comparison to the rest of the album a very ‘sweet’ and ‘lovely’ song is called 'fashion killa'. ‘cause she’s a fashion killa/and i’m a trendy niggah’ says a$ap in the hook, and this line perfectly matches his pretty boy, intellegent, ghetto but somehow a boy w/ a good heart (check out the vid ‘national anthem’ by lana del rey, where a$ap perfectly performs this role) image. 
i left out some tracks right now, but these are simply my favorites. ‘longlivea$ap’ doesn’t have any obvious fillers - which is unique in comtemporary hiphop i guess - and that’s why all the tracks mentioned above already make one of the greates hiphop records of twenty thirteen.
