Yakuza's Law is one of the most extreme and toughest Japanese gangster films ever made. In three stories you will get to know the laws of these Asian mobsters, and the ways of punishment that are inflicted upon those who break them. The basic premise of the film is that each of the three stories – one set in the feudal period, one around the time of the first world war, and one in the late sixties – teaches you what happens to those who break the specific and strictly enforced code of the Yakuza.

Two singles from Pornograffiti, "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted", reached the top-5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two other tracks, "Decadence Dance" and "Get the Funk Out", reached the lower half of Billboard's rock chart.

Good news! America’s master wordsmith strikes again with a new collection of erudite, witty, provocative, sometimes barbed, frequently hilarious “On Language” columns. Published in The New York Times and syndicated in more than three hundred other newspapers, these opinions from the “Supreme Court of Current English Usage” cover everything from the bottom line on tycoonese and the accesses* of computerese to portmanteau words like televangelist and Draconomics (the language maven’s own plan for our bloated economy).
Mitsuko Uchida, Pierre Boulez - Schoenberg: Piano Concerto, Berg: Sonata, Webern: Variations (2001) (Repost)

Mitsuko Uchida has been a committed exponent of Schoenberg's Piano Concerto for over a decade now. It is a work which remains controversial in its adaptation of the serial method to an almost Brahmsian harmonic palette, wedded to a formal approach that takes up the integrated design, and textural richness, of Schoenberg's pre-atonal works. Certainly in terms of the balance between soloist and orchestra, this recording clarifies the often capricious interplay to a degree previously unheard on disc (and most likely in the concert hall too).Interpretatively, it combines Pollini's dynamism, without the hectoring touch that creeps into the Adagio's climactic passages, and Brendel's lucidity, avoiding the deadpan feeling that pervades his final Giocoso.

Dance, House

Ibifornia is Cassius' first studio album in a decade. In addition to Mike D and Cat Power, who appear on the LP's first single "Action," Ibifornia also boasts guests like Ryan Tedder, Jaw, Portugal. The Man's John Gourley and Pharrell Williams. Williams teams up with Cat Power on the latest offering from the album, the trance anthem "Go Up." Williams previously worked with Cassius on the duo's "Eye Water," off their 2006 album 15 Again. "Go Up" fits the vibe of what Cassius' Phillippe Zdar calls "the Cassius and the Family Stone"; the album title itself is a portmanteau that combines the dusky dance clubs of Ibiza with the sunny, laidback feeling of California.

Copenhagen based Delayscape, aka Flemming Kaspersen, has been releasing electronic music since 2005 on various netlabels. 2010 sees Delayscape’s back catalogue, over five years of work, brought together over two discs: Morse Disco. The album is divided into two subtitles. First up is Music for Dancing at Home. What meets the listener is a deep, rich, collection of analogue notes and pads. The beats are clean with vintage synthesizer tones guiding the listener down an almost forgotten path of electronics. Simple constructs are built to form soundscapes of warm chords and squelching undercurrents, such as in the title piece “Morse Disco”…

The Extra Day is a portmanteau film in the tradition of the earlier Derby Day. The ball gets rolling when Joe Blake (Richard Basehart), the assistant to film director Kurt Vorn (Laurence Naismith), routinely summons a group of movie extras for a few necessary retakes. The audience then learns the "backstories" of the various extras. Starving artist Steven Marlow (George Baker), who has been doing crowd work to pay the bills, is the object of movie star Michele Blanchard's (Simone Simon) affections, even though he doesn't know it. Prizefighter Barney West (Sidney James) worries that he'll lose his extra job if his face is messed up in the ring. Socialite Toni Howard (Josephine Griffin) works in films to get away from the social whirl; her callback to Vorn's set nearly scotches her impending marriage to a famous singing star. And so it goes until the extras are assembled and Vorn yells "action." Future pop star Shani Wallis makes her screen debut in The Extra Day in a minor role.
