Links for a rainy early June afternoon (mostly music)

The Beastie Boys Off the Grid. Past their prime maybe, but still can kick it.

Jean Luc Goddard’s Sympathy for the Devil. Worth watching a few times for the camera work and to watch how the song slowly builds through a collaborative process.

Bongo Maffin. Because it’s such a tight pop song, the detail that it’s delivered in Shona, Tswana and Zulu is easily overlooked. For some perspective, it’s as if a European band was singing in Portuguese, Spanish and French.

On that note: The Catalan band ‘The Farts’. Good thing they have linguistic chauvinism in their favor.

Saudi TV spoof of Israeli politics. Maybe I am missing the humor here.
