1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) – Lights Down (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 6th, 2012 by Hyphen

Statik & Term take us out to Tokyo with the video for my favorite record off their second collaborative album, 2012.  Anytime you start a video with a shot of that intersection used in one of my favorite movies of all time, Lost In Translation, I’m probably going to love the cinematography.  My only wish would have been to get Big K.R.I.T. in the video and use his verse from the remix.  Still dope though.

Donnis – Tonight (video)

I’m pretty much a sucker for anything shot in Tokyo or Hong Kong that showcases cityscapes or flashing lights.  I’m a simple man.

Tokyo Gundam

Posted in Art on June 13th, 2009 by Hyphen

The Japanese have built a 59 foot replica of the RX-78-2 Gundam battle suit in Odaiba (Tokyo) and it’s just about the coolest thing ever.

More dope night pictures here and some clearer day shots here.  Apparently they’re taking it down at the end of the summer, but they should leave that thing up forever.
