I loooooooove metal logos. I was pretty proud of myself for being able to read the Impaled logo on a shirt the other week without asking, but that was NOTHING compared to these logos. It must have been so much fun to create these. I went with the Absu logo for this post cuz I love Absu, but you should see the other ones!

I enjoyed this video, which I wouldn’t say is NSFW but probably will get you some pretty weird looks from anyone watching over your shoulder.
This video is by the same director…. I remember seeing it on boing boing (I think) a while back. Aaaaand this one is probably NSFW.

I just searched the archives to find previous posts I had written about MARK GORMELY but I haven’t???? Ever??? Time to fix that RIGHT NOW because YES new MARK GORMLEY video!!! This is the jam of the summer no doubt, and the most valuable use of the next 9 minutes of your time! If you are unfamiliar with Mr Gormely’s work I suggest you watch this video as well, the one responsible for making him a beloved internet sensation:
12 year old musical prodigies playing all of the parts to YYZ at once!
boing boing (who hipped me to Die Antwoord in the first place) did a great follow up piece on the South African musicians. Oddly though, they don’t mention the most interesting fact (to me anyway) made clear in their research, which is that Die Antwoord is some kind of fake/satirical act. You can see the main rapper from Die Antwoord as his older incarnation, Max Normal, in the video above. Personally this doesn’t really change anything for me- I still think Die Antwoord is awesome, and a South African pretending to be a crazy chav rapper isn’t really less exotic to me than an actual crazy South African chav rapper. But, it does validate my suspicions about the group (didn’t their image seem a little too perfect? didn’t the hi-def videos seem unlikely?). Still….. I’m gonna hear the album when I get the chance.
