Best Thing I’ve Seen This Week 031712

March 17, 2012

It’s Saint Patrick’s Day, and it’s my 100th post — so go out and get real drunk.

The first contender this week was a trailer for a documentary that may or may not be out yet (I haven’t found it). “King of one String” tells the story of Jamaican Living legend Brushy One String. It’s probably only a download away, so it’s gonna get watched up soon.

This next this clip caught my eye while on Reddit. All I’ve been able to find out about it is that these folks are from Japan and are called “Wrecking Orchestra.” It’s not the best thing I’ve seen this week, but it’s definitely the best use of EL wire.

The winner of the top spot this week goes to some footage I came across of 1989 skate contest in Seatlle. Not only do you get to see the three winning runs by Christian Hosoi, Lance Mountain and Tony Hawk, but during Hosoi’s run you get to hear some pre-90s Sounds Garden that I didn’t know existed. The track is called “Head Injury,” and it’s so pre-90s that it predates the band’s 1989 album, “Louder than Love.” I always thought that was their first record, but I’ve recently learned that their debut was actually in ’88 with the album “Ultramega OK.” They also released a 3-song EP in ’89 called “Flower,” containing one song, “Toy Box,” that isn’t featured on “Ultramega OK.”

Now that some of you have a new record to download, enjoy the best thing I’ve seen this week.
