You may have seen the viral video “Old Man In Nursing Home Reacts To Music.” Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett talks about that moment and his documentary about reaching through dementia with music.

"Our film addresses some subjects people don’t like to talk about, yet it’s a joyous experience because we show that people suffering from memory loss still have this life inside that runs incredibly deep."

A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Creation Of An Electronic Music Track
Part of the thrill of going to a rock show is getting to watch musicians nimbly interact with their instruments. But at electronic music shows, where performers stand behind barely visible laptops and other mysterious machines, it’s near impossible to get a good look at where, exactly, their symphonies of bleeps and beats are coming from.
Director Mathieu le Dude and French producer 20syl offer a hypnotic behind-the-scenes look at the creation of electronic track “Kodama,” off 20syl’s new EP, Motifs. Seemingly disembodied hands hit drum machines, tap synthesizers, and twist knobs, revealing the origin of each distinct sound in the track.

Check Out These Punk Rock Posters, Remixed With Swiss Modernism

The Swissted collection doesn’t intend to literally explain any band’s sound or look. In honor of Swiss modernist principles, graphic designer Mike Joyce created abstract expressions instead. “If you look at Josef Muller-Brockmann’s ‘Musica Viva’ series, there’s not a musical instrument or musician to be seen,” Joyce tells Co.Design. “He used shape, structure, motion, color, and typography to evoke the feeling of music.”

When Marc Anthony sang “God Bless America” at last night’s MLB All-Star Game, racists were understandably outraged since baseball is America’s national pastime and Anthony is clearly not American.

I mean, just look at the guy!

Anyhow, these two guys win the award for Most Idiotic Tweets I’ve Seen Today. When presented with the fact that Anthony is, in fact, American, they continue to insist that there’s some sort of problem, honestly convinced that it’s impossible for someone to be Latino and American at the same time. After all, he’s clearly not white and doesn’t look like he could possibly be from New York.

Stupid facts. Always trying to get in the way of people’s racism.

“The record is my story,” Morissette says. “I think of the album as running over the different facets of my personality, one of them being my sexual self.
To isolate “You Oughta Know’ is a misrepresentation of the whole story. By no means is this record just a sexual angry record. That song wasn’t written for the sake of revenge, it was written for the sake of release. I’m actually a pretty rational, calm person.”
Jagged Little Pill was released 18 years ago today. Find out what Alanis Morissette had to say about the album in 1995.
