    Amoeba Music Live Performances are videos of live sets at one of three locations of Amoeba Music, the famed California independent record stores.

In addition to boasting a huge selection of CDs, records, tapes, and DVD's, the stores have some venue space where musicians can perform live shows. These shows are now filmed and made available on-line through amoeba.com. Past episodes have featured sets by The Go! Team, Elvis Costello, Mandy Moore, Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band, Band of Horses, and Aimee Mann. Other performers, like comedian Patton Oswalt, have even stopped by for gigs at one of the iconic stores. Amoeba Music Live Performances bring you exclusive sets from new and classic acts, live from the record shops that are more than just a place to buy records.moreless

    DANGEROUS MINDS is a compendium of the new and strange–new ideas, new art forms, new approaches to social issues and new finds from the outer reaches of pop culture. Our editorial policy, such that it is, reflects the interests, whimsies and peculiarities of the individual writers. And sometimes it doesn't. Very often the idea is just "Here's what so and so said, take a look and see what you think." I'll repeat that: We're not necessarily endorsing everything you'll find here, we're merely saying "Here it is." We think human beings are very strange and often totally hilarious. We enjoy weird and inexplicable things very much. We believe things have to change and change swiftly. It's got to be about the common good or it's no good at all. We like to get suggestions of fun/serious things from our good-looking, high IQ readers. We are your favorite distraction.moreless

    Blogotheque, La
    From La Blogotheque and renowned French independent filmmaker Vincent Moon comes Take Away Shows. The sessions consist of an artist or band playing in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator every week. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectedly. These live, unusually staged performances differ from the artifice of traditional music videos in favor of single-take, organic and primarily acoustic sessions, keeping the raw sound of the surroundings. The goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.moreless

    The LXD
    The LXD, short for the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, is a web series from director John M. Chu about a group of dancers who also serve as a justice league of superheroes, even without traditional supernatural powers. Instead, they possess extraordinary powers of dance, and a mysterious outfit known as the LXD recruits them. There is also the hint of evil in the form of a shadow woven throughout the episodes, suggesting another entity that uses supernatural powers of dance in a bad way. As the story unfolds, it is told not just through dialogue but through extraordinary dance sequences that leave no question about why these dancer's abilities can turn them into superheroes. The actors on the show are relatively unknown except for their experience in the dance and choreography communities, with the notable exception of Harry Shum Jr., who stars as choir member Mike Chang on the hit Fox show Glee. The core group of the show's main characters has done performances opening for the Glee tour, on So You Think You Can Dance, and at The Oscars.moreless

    Film critic Richard Roeper reviews the newest theatrical release movies on Starz channel, a partnership that began in 2009. Roeper's career has brought him from the Chicago Sun Times to TV after he famously joined Roger Ebert on his nationally syndicated movie review show as a permanent replacement co-host for the late Gene Siskel. Ebert and Roeper's partnership lasted from 2002 until Ebert's medical issues forced him to retire in 2006. Roeper continued the show on his own through 2008 before moving on to new partnerships with Starz and ReelzChannel, noticeably abandoning the trademark thumbs up/thumbs down reviews made famous by Siskel and Ebert's program. Roeper has also embraced social media with regular updates to his twitter account, iPhone application, and personal blog, often including impromptu reviews of movies as he leaves a theater. He has even weighed in on the occasional television show such as the widely discussed series finale of Lost, coming out with a very positive A+.moreless

    The WB
    Batgirl: Year One is a motion comic series developed from DC Comics’s iconic Batgirl’s nine-part Batgirl: Year One series as we gain a deeper look at one of Barbara Gordon’s first turn as the caped crusader, learning just how hard it is to wear the mask while staying alive. Young, supremely intelligent, and determined, Barbara would do anything to take down criminals, though every route to that goal, either legally by becoming a cop like her dad, James Gordon, or illegally by becoming a masked vigilante, is dismissed. When the Killer Moth crashes the Million Dollar Masquerade Ball, Barbara puts to use her female Batman costume by taking down the creepy villain before Batman and Robin arrive. Initially dismissed by Batman and flirted with by Robin, Barbara works hard to prove that she has just as much right to become a superhero as the others, ultimately becoming Batgirl. Batgirl: Year One was adapted by the new graphic way of storytelling, holding onto the panel-by-panel style but with moving graphics, sounds, and explosive dynamics.moreless
