Follow the Journey of a Troubled Figure Skater in the Video for Grizzly Bear's "Yet Again"
By Jenn Pelly on September 27, 2012 at 09:20 a.m.

Grizzly Bear have shared a video for their Shields cut "Yet Again", directed by Emily Kai Bock. The clip opens with a female figure-skater alone on a dark rink, and then chronicles her personal journey after cracking through the ice. She travels from a carnival to the woods, back to a suburban home, and it all ends with a dizzying scene of mental anguish.

The video was produced in partnership with the Creators Project. Read our Director's Cut interview with Bock about her video for Grimes' "Oblivion" here.


Morrissey Rushes to Help Elderly Woman After Collapse in New York City Bookstore
By Jenn Pelly on September 27, 2012 at 08:50 a.m.

We now have another reason to call Morrissey a hero. As Queerty reports, last Sunday, the ever-compassionate Moz was shopping alone at New York bookstore the Strand (in the photography section), when an elderly woman beside him collapsed and fell to the ground.

Queerty quotes a source as saying:

Morrissey, who was there alone, immediately rushed to her side and crouched on the ground to see if she was okay. She had just lost her bearings and was fine. He picked up her stray belongings and asked if he could get her some water or call for help. She declined and collected her things and moved on. But my friend said she touched Morrissey’s cheek in gratitude! Obviously, she didn’t know who he was, just was touched by this act of kindness from a nice British man… He seemed very shaken up and flustered by the incident and left the store soon afterwards without buying anything.


Peter Hook to Tour New Order's Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies, Writes Joy Division Book
By Carrie Battan on September 27, 2012 at 12:20 p.m.

Ex-New Order bassist Peter Hook was so disgruntled by the band's decision to reunite and tour without him that he's just going to do it himself. He's throwing two shows in January, at which he and his backing band the Light will perform New Order's 1981 album Movement and 1983's Power, Corruption & Lies in full. The first takes place at London's Koko on January 17; the second at Manchester Cathedral on January 18. The shows will benefit the mental health charity Mind and Manchester charity Forever Manchester.

They'll also play non-album singles including "Ceremony", "Temptation", "Blue Monday", and "Everything's Gone Green". This follows Peter Hook and the Light's tours playing Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures, Closer, and Still in full.

In other Peter Hook news, he's got a new book-- his second-- out this week. It's called Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division. He's going on a book tour in support (dates here).

meh, as sad as it is, plenty of people would've just stood around doing nothing about it, especially in a place like nyc.

I've missed Grizzly Bear. I feel like it's been way too long since they had anything new out.

Ok, I love Morrissey, but I can't be the only one that read "He seemed very shaken up and flustered by the incident and left the store soon afterwards without buying anything." as "Morrissey, shocked and dismayed with himself for breaking character, fled the scene shortly thereafter."

I will {censored in case police are reading} the cathedral before that happens.
babyyouloveit 27th-Sep-2012 07:41 pm (UTC)
I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't like the Smiths or Morrissey
Like I can relate to the "How Soon is Now" lyrics but I can't take his voice, or any of their other songs.
roguewave3 27th-Sep-2012 07:44 pm (UTC)
I love the Smiths but I hate Morissey and I don't care for his solo work.
poopanna 27th-Sep-2012 08:25 pm (UTC)
I'm going to see Morrissey simply to see him perform Smiths songs because they're better than his solo stuff. However, The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get is a REALLY good song.

Morrissey Cartoon Pictures, Images and Photos

I do love that song, though.
16_bit_goddess 28th-Sep-2012 12:59 pm (UTC)
"beware, I bear more grudges than lonely high court judges" is one of my favorite lines from any song ever lol
pineandapple 27th-Sep-2012 07:47 pm (UTC)
I love them to death, but there are songs from them I can't stand. Depends on what songs you're hearing. Please Let me Get What I Want is the most likable from them, imo.
shantayustay 27th-Sep-2012 07:48 pm (UTC)
I hate their fans more.
16_bit_goddess 27th-Sep-2012 08:15 pm (UTC)
try "that joke isn't funny anymore" and "death of a disco dancer"
lucidimpression 28th-Sep-2012 03:57 am (UTC)
Awesome icon.
babyyouloveit 28th-Sep-2012 07:45 pm (UTC)
(The picture in your icon was actually the first picture I had ever seen of them~)
phammypak 27th-Sep-2012 08:18 pm (UTC)
Wait...why is Hooky disgruntled that they carried on without him? Wasn't he the one that left????
poopanna 27th-Sep-2012 08:20 pm (UTC)
I will be at Morrissey's show on the 10th. I am excite.
