There are also quite a few that I have left off the list so as not to make it too lengthy. Things like Rooibos tea and potjiekos, mngqusho and mahewu, mpokoqo and amasi. OK so you don’t know what these are and maybe they are subjects for another Hub..
But the deepest sentiment Iggy achieves in King of the Dogs is “I’m hanging out where the spirits dwell/ I can smell the things you cannot smell.” The arrangement, a sufficiently rousing combination of the trombone, clarinet and trumpet blasts one would expect to hear while careening drunk through the French Quarter, feels far more suited to the croaky voice and grizzled persona of Pop’s friend and Coffee and Cigarettes co star, Tom Waits.I’m hoping this tossed off trinket is simply the sound of Iggy getting warmed up and that the rest of the album will have more, ahem, bite. His lovely French cover version of Autumn Leaves (Les Feuilles Mortes), for example, suggests the singer’s willing to stretch his depths of hell baritone in rich new directions; you can hear a snippet at the end of this lengthy press conference.While you wait to hear the rest of Prliminaires, I do recommend checking out the video for King of the Dogs. Its interactive premise follow one of 3 shaggy dog stories! and furry creatures from stop motion whiz Patrick Boivin will surely lead to tail wagging excitement from many Iggy fans:Passion play: My first impression of Manners, the debut long player from Cambridge, Mass., five piece Passion Pit, was simply this: damn, these guys are enthusiastic.

EDIT: Oh, right. Men In Black. I don’t know about you, but I think of a “reboot” as a classic movie remade by an inferior filmmaker using CGI to shit on something we all hold dear. Superheroes are certainly in the pop culture spotlight, but they don’t reflect the audiences as well as they used to.So, DC is starting over: redesigning classic costumes and tinkering with the origins and ethnicities of its crime fighters. DC’s co publisher and illustrator Jim Lee has suggested that he wants to make DC characters more diverse, more “identifiable and accessible.”There are a few clues about DC’s new direction in the revamped Justice League, shown above.The guy at the bottom right who looks like an angry X Box with silver fins sticking out of him? That’s Cyborg, who was previously a minor character most often associated with the Teen Titans. Now, Lee is calling him a “modern day, 21st century superhero.”Is it my imagination or do Wonder Woman, Superman and Flash seem younger? Recasting the Man of Steel as a superteen from Krypton could be another ploy to attract younger readers.Of course any comic fan old enough to remember Marvel’s Secret Wars knows that sending superheroes back to the drawing board and playing renumbering games are among the favourite pastimes of comic publishers.
