The Internet Loves Daft Punk Today. That Makes Today Awesome.

Apparently while I was at the art opening [which was damn cool, if more of a book launch than an exhibit. Probably the reason it's only showing for like, two and a half weeks. But Nick was super nice, and thanks for hooking up my boy] the internet decided it was going to be boring. Ah well, our amazing week couldn't last forever, Windsor.

However, there seems to be a fascination with Daft Punk today. First there's this photo of them being taken hostage by Storm Troopers. Then there's the growing need to decode the songs they sample on their records.

Me, I've always been fascinated by how samples are reused in the first place, so it's not really going to break my heart to know 'Crescendolls' or 'Digital Love' was lifted basically note for note from other songs. Does any of this change the fact that 'Discovery' is possibly the best full length house record ever made? No, no it does not.

In tribute, watch Interstella 555, the band's video for the entire album, done by Japanese anime pioneer Leiji Matsumoto. Awesomeness.
