“Scenes From the Suburbs” is a 30-minute short film directed by Spike Jonze, a companion piece to Arcade Fire’s Grammy-winning third album, “The Suburbs.” The movie premiered this year at Germany’s Berlinale Festival and was screened the SXSW Film Festival in Austin.
The film is a meditation on life, a remembrance of things past by a group of friends who spent a languid summer together in an unnamed town that was taken over by the army. Back then, a summer, so long ago. They couldn’t leave town, because outside the country was at war, and the military controlled life and all the gateways. The teenagers wandered aimlessly about town. Winter was a long way off, and love and longing and friendship still meant everything.
This piece includes photographs, as well as the full version of the short film.

To all of the people who were seriously angry with me, even wishing me death, for having an opinion about what happened to Serene Branson the other night, please note that I wish her nothing but the best of health and well being. Your anger, however, is severely misplaced. To wish harm to others for finding humor is a world chock full of endless serious issues proves nothing besides how small minded and evil you evil-wishers are. Last year, I featured Lindsay Lohan‘s salacious video for Muse Magazine, something that I was hired to do, and you would have thunk that I had killed someone. This recent slew of scary comments that wish me harm reminds me of those same lunatics who wanted me dead for showing the Lindsay video. To all of you who find the time..rather having nothing but time…to wish me harm: Please…leave this site now. I Mean…What?!? is not for you.
Please watch this reporter Serene Branson after the Grammy Awards. I, too, was speechless when Arcade Fire won Album of the Year. However, all the reports today are that she was rushed to the hospital, and rumors of an on-air stroke-like occurence abound. Keep looking at the footage. You won’t see a clear moment of brain malfunction. Rather, her tongue seems kind of stuck like when you do too much blow and can’t speak. We watched her Grammy Red Carpet coverage earlier in the evening and she was partying with all the stars. Surely we can’t rule out a quick trip to the loo with Bruno Mars and the result is…well…watch it again…only this time with my theory in mind. Click the image or the link below to watch the clip from my Flip Camera since CBS has taken down all the YouTube versions.

Arcade Fire has a new video directed by Spike Jonze.
Says Win Butler: “We shot it in Austin and a lot of kids are in the film and it was great just hanging out with these 15-year-olds for a week and writing down all the funny things they said. It was cool to revert to being a 15-year-old for a little while.”

Wednesday night, Arcade Fire radiantly illuminated Madison Square Garden, filling the packed arena with wildly rapturous sounds, as thousands clapped on command. Arcade Fire crony Owen Pallett started things off with looping, atmospheric violins, as if consecrating the space. The band then filled the stage with nine musicians, swapped instruments at will, banged on hand-held drums with sticks and open palms, twirled, stomped, bounced, and danced, giving their complex, precise arrangements an almost ridiculous sense of wildness. This may be as close as Madison Square Garden will get to championship euphoria for a long time.
This piece includes a number of colorful photographs, as well as four HD music videos from the concert.
