Pharrell Records “I Am Other” Theme with HMI Orchestra

The first thing you’re probably wondering is “what the fuck is I Am Other?” Long story short, it’s a new venture Pharrell set up to showcase upcoming talent (artists, designers, filmmakers, etc.) through various forms of media. Another day another dollar.

Shelly Berg orchestrated and conducted the work, and Director of Recording Services Paul Griffith (B.M. ’83) was the recording engineer.

What The F*** is Michael Jordan Wearing? Makes its Way to Complex

Yesterday evening, Complex’s Art & Design channel made a post about Aaron’s What The F*** is Michael Jordan Wearing Tumblr, and the beauty of it all is that I wasn’t even involved. I was gonna mention it to them, but they went ahead and beat me to it. That shit is impressive.

The funny thing is that all of this could be random and totally meaningless. I’ve been watching the game closely for nearly half my life, and the rules of the game don’t apply do these dudes. Who knows, though. Check the feature out and come up with your own conspiracy theory….

The Cool Kids Are Free

There’s a reason you haven’t heard much from these guys for the past couple of years. It’s because they were fighting with Chocolate Industries to get out their shitty contract. That ugly situation prevented them from releasing a studio album, so if anyone wondering what the delay was…there you go. They should find a new home pretty soon, that way they can drop more than just mixtapes.
