!! OMG, surreal J-pop video alert: ‘PonPonPon’ by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu !!


High school student-turned-Harajuku fashion blogger and model Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, a.k.a. Carrie, a.k.a. きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ, has just released a brilliantly addictive music video for her debut single ‘PonPonPon.’ If you’re bored on the Internet or torturing a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, this video should do the trick.
Kyary, who is apparently well known in the Harajuku fashion world for her ‘strange face’ and dolly styles, is preparing to release the mini-album Moshi Moshi Harajuku (“Hello Harajuku”) in August. Check out this interview with her in Time Out Tokyo. Best part:

How have the sales been for the tsukema (artificial eyelashes) you brought out?
A lot of people came to buy them, and I’m happy they liked them. One man bought so many of them and I’m wondering what he is going to do with them…(laughs)!

Thanks to Miss Margot for the tip!

!! OMG, watch the intro to Björk’s ‘Biophilia’ app album !!


For the past couple of months we’ve breathlessly followed all this Björk app album business and now the ground-breaking/game-changing Biophilia “mother” app is available to buy from the iTunes store (as of Tuesday) along with apps for the songs “Cosmogony” and “Crystalline”.
Too bad we don’t own an iPad or an iPhone. After all of that excitement, we’ll still have to wait for the vinyl version to come out so we can close our eyes and imagine orbs and munchkins riding unicorns through rainbow waterfalls using that oft-unreliable old school technology known as the human brain.
Or maybe we’ll pre-order the $800 made-to-order Biophilia Ultimate Edition, which is “presented in a lacquered and silkscreened oak hinged-lid case” and includes the Biophilia Manual, “a 48-page, full-color, hardbound, cloth-covered, and thread-sewn book, tipped on lenticular panel to the front cover, with foil-blocked spine and back cover”, a CD of the album “housed in black uncoated board wallets” and “10 chrome-plated tuning forks, silkscreened on one face in 10 different colors, stamped at the back, and presented in a flocked tray. Each fork is adjusted to the tone of a Biophilia track, covering a complete octave in a non-conventional scale.”
Above you can watch the intro to the app, which is narrated by David Attenborough. On September 27 the full album will be released via Nonesuch/One Little Indian.
