Happy Valentine’s Day from The Flaming Lips

They love everyone. Including blobs.

In addition to Radiohead announcing a new album, The Flaming Lips have released their newest creation for free on the world today. It’s called “Two Blobs Fucking” (no, really) and it’s available in 12 parts at this YouTube channel (also really). Like “Zaireeka,” the parts are intended to be played simultaneously, as it was “created specifically for iPhone-type devices.” So if you’ve got 11 friends with iPhones/Droids, you should all definitely get together and have a “Two Blobs Fucking” party (um, Happy Valentine’s Day?).

Also, this can only mean one thing: Get ready for the largest cell phone choir ever at this year’s New Year’s Eve Freakout. Like, Guinness World Records-style. Make it happen, Wayne.

As for how it sounds, it’s difficult to tell when you can only listen to one part at a time, but it seems to continue on the experimental, demented weirdness of “Embryonic.” Track 9 is Wayne’s voice, and he’s talking instead of singing. Track 7 is the drum track, and it’s pretty cool and complex. There are a lot of weird synths; mega-heavy guitars play on most, if not all, of the tracks around the 1:15 mark. In short, it’s a Flaming Lips song.

Apparently there’s a lot more where this came from, and it’s promised to be released in unusual ways. Did we expect any less?

For the ‘Fun’ of it

Watch Kyle Roberts’ app-tastic adaptation of a smartphone game sensation.

Played Fun Run yet? Or perhaps, like me, just watched over your kid’s shoulder as he did?

Hell, even if you haven’t heard of the game, this clip’s themes are universal enough that you’ll get it. Local filmmaker/animator Kyle Roberts’ latest project is “Fun Run in Real Life,” a three-minute video that sees some wicked parkour unleashed throughout downtown Oklahoma City — especially Stage Center, which seems made for dat sh!t — as fast-paced participants use their feet and try not to lose their heads:



You may have recognized OKC rapper Jabee lending his voice. (If not, you weren’t paying attention; like all good hip-hoppers, he directly references himself in the lyrics.)

God help us all if Hollywood decides to turn Fun Run into a movie, but if it does, Roberts deserves the directing gig. —Rod Lott
