vice guide to travel
So, according to this especially brutal thread on Hipinion (complete with a bunch of not particularly relevant photos of Ryan Schreiber), it was Pitchfork that leaked Joanna Newsom's Ys, three months in advance. The thread also alleges that the non-protected directory included numerous albums, including Tapes 'n Tapes, the unreleased Blood Brothers, and MC Hammer, as well as all 200 songs used in the Pitchfork Best of the 1960s Feature. Probably not good for them at all. Moving on...
Thanks to Vice for allowing us to premiere this new trailer for what could turn out to be one of the more interesting films of the year, their upcoming Vice Guide To Travel, featuring Johnny Knoxville, David Cross, Spike Jonze, and more. Vice says:
"This is a clip from when VICE co-founder Shane Smith went to investigate the world's portal for black-market weapons in Bulgaria. Bulgaria's abandoned nuclear plants are a veritable garden of material for illegal bombs. We traveled to the squalid gypsy camps of the capital city of Sofia and the luxury resorts on the Black Sea to see the effects of capitalism in over drive - where everything is for sale - to meet a criminal-turned-real-estate-mogul (that's the guy whose face is all blurry in the clip) who met with Osama bin Laden and sold a dirty bomb to French journalists."
Vice also hooked us up with a couple mp3s of songs from the soundtrack that are featured in this clip:
Averkiou I Don't Want to Go Out mp3
5ive Soma mp3
The Vice Guide to Travel DVD comes out October 3. Pre-order it here. Check out their myspace page, and view trailers for Pakistan and Beirut here or here.
Bonus: Spin offers another mp3 from the soundtrack for download:
