Theophilus London — Timez Are Weird These Days

He’s a long way from the next Kanye.


Hip Hop/Rap

Matt Carney
Judging by the ads Warner Bros. Records is running on Pitchfork, the lack of coverage in more conventional rap and hip-hop media outlets, and hired-gun producer Dan Carey’s résumé (Hot Chip, M.I.A., La Roux), the juggernaut label is marketing Theophilus London’s debut LP, “Timez Are Weird These Days,” toward hipsters instead of a more conventional hip-hop audience.

The Hangover Part II

The wolf pack is back. Plus, a monkey.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Considerable criticism has been lobbed at "The Hangover Part II" for essentially resurrecting the story template of the first film. Yeah, but really, what else could you expect them to do? Besides, it's not like director/co-writer Todd Phillips just used the same jokes.

VOTD: Drink the Kool-Aid

We mean indie-pop band Cults’ cut for ‘You Know What I Mean.’

Cults — in case you forgot — were the delightful big-label-masquerading-as-indie-darlings pop surprise of 2011. Regardless of who distributed their excellent debut album, it’s, well, excellent.


This video of guitarist Brian Oblivion taking a massive-scaled circus plunge off a platform and into the heart of cutie-pie singer Madeline Follin matches the tender tone of the ’60s girl-group song, at least until her daddy gets mad and another circus stunt goes wrong.

Keeping an industry from fading to black


Commentary

Jill Simpson
The film industry and the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program are good for Oklahoma. In an industry driven by financial incentives, if the state Legislature eliminates the film rebate this session, our growing industry will likely die.
