Previously, On Arrested Development
WITH the quirky but critically acclaimed Arrested Development heading back to the small screen through Netflix, lots of obsessive fans have been rewatching all the episodes on the video streaming service in marathon sessions. If that isn't enough, NPR has created a mini-site for the show. If you need to brush up on some of the running gags or just want to re-immerse yourself into the Arrested Development world, this comprehensive site should do the trick.
MP3 of the Week -- A Tribe Called Red
A TRIBE Called Red and their unique cross pollination of hip hop, aboriginal pow wow rhythms, speaker-rattling bass music and contemporary EDM sounds have created a big stir. Along with some high-profile bookings on Diplo's Mad Decent Block Party Tour and a gig at Movement in Detroit this month, A Tribe Called Red's Ian "DJ NDN" Campeau, Dan "DJ Shub" General and Bear Witness have been breaking down barriers and recontextualizing modern aboriginal music for the club and beyond. Like many artists these days, the group is giving its music away on the web and building an audience one show at a time.
Video of the Week:Vice on HBO Ep. #1 Extended
If you aren't watching Vice's fascinating news program on HBO -- either because you can't be bothered to pay the extra cash to watch shows like Game of Thrones, True Blood and Vice when they air or because you'd rather watch their other content online -- the formerly Canadian-based media giant has been putting tons of video extras and extended pieces on its popular YouTube channel. If you are a dedicated viewer, you can dig deeper into the stories online, and even if you haven't been watching the show over the past two months, you can get caught up on the stories that have been exposed during Vice's first real foray into mainstream news programming. From pistol-packing preachers to grocery shopping with North Korean defectors to backyard gun shops, Vice is chasing down the stories you won't be seeing on CBS, NBC, ABC or CBC.
