TIME WARP!!!  Dance your cares away with Gobo, Mokey, Red, Wembley and Boober when Fraggle Rock‘s fourth and final season comes out on DVD November 3rd. Envisioned in the mind of Jim Henson, creator of Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock debuted on January 10, 1983, broadcast in the US, Canada, and the United Kingdom. It soon became an international phenomenon, with the “Fraggle Rock Theme” reaching number thirty-three on the British charts. Of all Henson’s series Fraggle Rock was the most conceptually rich, with Gorgs, Doozers, and the Silly Creatures of Outer Space all comprising the family-friendly syndicate. The magical world of Fraggle Rock will enchant anyone who is a kid at heart. Here’s Fraggle Rock‘s version of “We Are the World,” with “Children of Tomorrow” (queue warm, fuzzy feelings):

Why?
Eskimo Snow
(Anticon)
Releasing: 22 September

Bay Area art-poppers Why? release Eskimo Snow today on Anticon. This time around, their music has a more folksy panache littered with lyrical introversion, a break away from the primal rap and angst-ridden beats of Alopecia. Watch Why? perform “Eskimo Snow”, a somber synth-ballad whose quiet reflections viscerally ring true.

SONG LIST
01 These Hands
02 January Twenty Something
03 Against Me
04 Even the Good Wood Gone
05 Into the Shadows of My Embrace
06 One Rose
07 On Rose Walk, Insomniac

Where does one truly find inspiration?  The directorial debut of Rob Perez, writer of 40 Days and 40 Nights, presses to answer that exact question.

Lindeman (played by Sam Rosen), a sculptor with his art school final project in front of him, finds himself simply stumped. He looks for inspiration around every corner, in every scene. This includes the goth scene, the gay scene, becoming an intellect, a lover and a vegan, but nothing seems to be the answer to his artistic existential crisis. He realizes that being a nobody defines somebody.

The movie is also accompanied by a musical score and soundtrack completed and compiled by Guster’s lead singer Ryan Miller, who also, impressively enough, co-wrote the movie with Rob Perez. The film premieres Thursday, October 1 at the State Theatre in Minneapolis, MN.

Watch and re-watch the trailer until then.
