tropico, a short film

Lana del Rey just released a short film–30 minutes of what I expect to be heartbreaking and mysteriously romantic.  “Tropico” stars the starlet and Shaun Ross who looks like Silas from The Da Vinci Code.  Some write-up this is, huh.  I haven’t even put 30 minutes aside yet.  So let me know how it is, kids.

Let Go

There have been some wonderfully awesome collaborations as of late.  I plan on dissecting this one to the fullest.  This is a warning, I plan on blowing your mind.

The song:

RAC’s “Let Go” featuring Kele and MNDR.

I’m going to start with RAC. We heard a sick RAC remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” which I so considerately showed you here a while back.  An unreal remix of a song that is full of sorrow and despair, RAC adds some light and dance to Lana’s heartbreak anthem.

Let’s move onto Kele, the lead singer from Bloc Party, this guy can do no wrong in my eyes.  Not only do I love Block Party, but Kele had a song that I made all of my friends listen to on repeat my senior year.  Every chance I could get I changed the music to this unreal song from his first solo album.  Needless to say j and c heard this song probably more than they wanted to.  I’m still obsessed with it to this day.

Finally, MNDR.  Talk about fun, trendy and fitting right into this wonderful threesome of awesome.  Give this a listen and I’ll let you decide.

Mind Blown.

Now, my friends.  Go.  Go and listen to this because it won’t disappoint.  a

I Am Supposed To Be At A Gatsby Party

So I am going to give you all fair warning:  I am obsessed with “The Great Gatsby.”  It is one of my most favorite books of all time.

Here’s your next warning: I’m almost completely convinced I was born into the wrong time era.  I’m pretty sure I was supposed to be IN this time period, the 1920s, with Gatsby at all his swanky parties and wearing unbelievable jewelry.  It’s bordering on unhealthy.

I’m also planning on going to the movie in costume.  Say I won’t.

NOW.  Let’s just discuss the absolute EPIC-NESS of this soundtrack.  First and foremost, Jay-Z produced the ever loving life out of it and the lineup of artists on it will make you so excited you can’t even see straight.

Second: the majority of these artists have appeared somewhere, sometime on PB&Jams.  Did j, c and i essentially  predict one of the best soundtracks of all time to one of the soon to be best movies of all time?  Probably.  All in a day’s work, people.

Third: I don’t want to say I told you so, but I told you so. What did I tell you?  THAT I AM SUPPOSED TO BE AT A SWANKY PARTY WEARING SOME SICK DRESS AND FILTHY AMOUNTS OF DIAMONDS AND PEARLS EVERYWHERE.

I digress.

This sneak peak of the soundtrack will get you all sorts of happy and put you exactly where you need to be: at a damn good swanky-ass “roaring twenties” party.  This soundtrack takes you all the way back to this time period while channeling the modern party scene of today.  How do they do it?  It’s goddamn magic.  And Jay-Z.

Some favorites?  Emeli Sandé, Jack White, xx and Sia.

Check it out and get excited, peeps.  What will I be doing to prepare?  So glad you asked!  I’ll be sipping on Bourbon, wearing flapper dresses, practicing my dancing and classy flirtation with men.  Who am I kidding, I’ll read the book again and cry because I’m nostalgic for a time period.  Lord help me, somebody has toa

P.S. I realize I haven’t even touched on the casting for this film.  That is all saved for another post when I can catch my breath over this soundtrack.

summer wine

Self-proclaimed gangster Nancy Sinatra actually covers Nancy Sinatra’s “Summer Wine,” with her real boyfriend, Barrie-James O’Neill of the band Kassidy.  It’s almost hard to tell what time period it is when this all happens.  That mystery is part of Lana’s charm.

black tattoo

So here’s a bit of music gossip for you:
Remember the tattooed heart-throb I gushed about a few months ago?  To refresh your memory, that heart-throb is Bradley Soileau, a model, dj, and all-around cocky A.H.  Apparently he is keen on publicly bashing the likes of Nicki Minaj and Jeffree Star.  He plays the boyfriend in Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” and “Born to Die” videos.  In real life, he plays the role of husband to “gangster rock” singer Porcelain Black (Alaina Beaton).  She may get cred for working with Lil’ Wayne, but after watching her video, you’ll agree with me that Soileau should have stayed trapped inside Lana’s “Blue Jeans”…

*note: you should probably stop listening after :58.
