You don’t use the same password over and over right? Let’s be honest this is the day and age of the hacker. Eclectic Method brings you “Hackers” , Hollywood’s celebration of basement dwelling 128 bit encryption masters. They’ll shut down before you can trace them, hack into the mainframe and go straight for the kernel, hell they might even insert a worm on the back of a trojan. Keanu Reeves has been one, Angelina Jolie has been one and Matthew Broderick was one before he was Ferris Bueller.
Shall we play a game? Spot every movie in this hackisode….
A few nights ago Maria and I went to the Spectacle Opening at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens. Spectacle is the history of the music video told through many exhibits, a Sonos / Vevo event curated by Jonathan Wells and Meg Grey Wells of Flux. The event is up for another month so if your in New York totally go check it out. Besides featuring EM’s 99 Problems in the remix section alongside many great EBN videos it also has work from Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, OK GO and Kanye West to name but a few. Throughout are props from historical music videos and a fairly all encompassing history of the music video from bottom to top as you walk through the museum. Totally loved it and you’ll find my instagram flooded with pics of it. Also at the very very top is Red Paper Heart ‘s interactive video light Sonos installation .
Just recovering from our New Orleans trip. I went down there for first time with Maria and my dad to visit Allison and our Baton Rogue / Mississippi crew. We started our first night with some Purple Drank and then went to meet up with our friends Carlos and Ricky who were staying at Lafitte’s Guest House with a balcony over looking Bourbon Street. Then we went to Arnaud’s Restaurant where we stuffed ourselves with seafood and I tried a Baked Alaska for first time, it’s a layered icecream shoved in a cake. Then went to Molly’s on the way to bed. Saturday I played a Saint Patrick’s Day house party at Collyn & Wiffy’s place. By “house party” I mean house to the street party as most people were on the street drinking and eating Jambalaya which is totally legal there, the drinking i mean, Jambalaya is legal everywhere. The band playing was made up of Dave Jordan, West Bank Mike and friends. New Orleans is pretty fucking cool really, admittedly we spent most of our time in the French Quarter but I totally love it…. Just the right amount of silly.
