"Thanks for your Gotham award jokes, everybody! Really funny. Will be reading 10 on stage! #Gothamjokes" - Mike Birbiglia

Bradford Cox (Atlas Sound) at Osheaga 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Atlas Sound

Jordan Catalano aka Elijah Wood's best friend aka 30 Seconds to Mars frontman aka one of the "alt-est" human beings alive Jared Leto is set to star in the new Jean-Marc Vallée-directed film, Dallas Buyers Club, where he plays an AIDS-infected cross-dresser whose lover is being played by Deerhunter/Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox (the alt-est couple ever?), Hollywood Reporter reports (via Pitchfork). The film also stars Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner.

Jared Leto also recently directed his own film, a documentary called Artifact, which beat the PS 22 Chorus documentary Once in a Lullabye at the Gotham Awards last night (11/26). Gregory Ellwood was live blogging for Hitfix and after predicting Beasts of the Southern Wild would win, he wrote:

This was voted by members and the audience is shocked. Was there a limit to the number of times you could vote? [Jared Leto] says "This movie, which many of you haven't seen is a very, very personal film. It was made by a small group of people over a few years. It talks about being an artist and art and commerce. I'd like to thank everyone who voted for us online. I know some people are upset that 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' isn't up here and it's a phenomenal film." He adds, "Don't hate me because I won. I love that other film too."
The Gotham Awards were hosted by Mike Birbiglia, who was partially telling jokes that were supplied to him by his Twitter followers, some of which he tested out live on stage at the Pretty Good Friends Sandy benefit at The Bell House one night earlier (11/25).

A video of Atlas Sound and Lower Dens playing "Mona Lisa" at a special session during Primavera Sound in Barcelona this past June can be watched below...

Indie is about to implode on itself(hopefully). With this and the Terrence Mallick's Austin-Music-Scene-Love-Triangle(s) movie.

Which will include a Neon Indian (oh, he is the worst) cameo.

UGH!!!!

Buckeye is going to go apeshit.

I know right? Buckeye Shrimper has such a raging hard-on for Bradford Cox, as soon as he gets home from delivering pizzas he's going to fire up the old Windows 95 gaming machine, see this post, wack off a couple three times (to Bradford or course) then serial post scarf hate.

I'm gonna make popcorn.

You guys know that Shrimpy is like Beetlejuice, you just need a third post mentioning his name and ...... oh, that was three .... welp, buckle up, cause we're all gonna get shrimped now any minute.

Apparently to prepare for the role of an AIDS infected cross dresser, Bradford looked in the mirror

Bradford should have picked up a NYMetro free newspaper last week. Two-for-one Big Macs or McNuggets at McD

I love Atlas Sound/Deerhunter but that's a pretty shit version of Mona Lisa. Then again, everyone has their off days.

Jared Leto is a vacant fucking shithead. If your life's work is pretending you're as relevant as the crap end of indie-leaning alternative radio, and being wrong about THAT, you're a flaccid cock.

Posted by Anonymous | November 28, 2012 2:41 AM

^you seem to have forgotten that lots and lots of people just absolutely LUV flaccid cock. however, these people are not the barometer of good taste. try to remember that these people are everywhere and that all you can do is laugh at them.

I LUV I JAH

It's behooving hearing that clown call himself an artist.

12:05: Dumbest person in the history of the internets.

Posted by Anonymous | November 28, 2012 12:19 PM

12:05 gets a pass if he was trying to reference Sal the Stockbroker. Otherwise, yes. Dumbest person in history.

^Yeah, I doubt that was the intention.

Nah, sausage carrot-no-space inbred douche is the dumbest person alive (see 2:41, 9:35, et al). The world would be a richer place without that human fart.

BEHOOVING!

Confirmed: 12:05/12:29 is in fact dumbest person in the history of the internets.

Nothing else to see here...

PSA for F5ing loser:

behooving

Verb:


1.It is a duty or responsibility for someone to do something; it is incumbent on: "it behooves any coach to study his predecessors".
2.It is appropriate or suitable; it befits.

Everybody loooooves Jared Leto and his band, but what about the sexually confused but gay-leaning kid from My So Called Life - he has a band too.

^your stupid sentences STILL doesn't make sense dumb ass. If it is 'appropriate' or 'suitable' why did you the rest of the sentence read "hearing that clown call himself an artist."? Unless you somehow equate 'clown' with 'artist'.

You're a dumb fuck. For real.

Posted by Anonymous | November 28, 2012 1:03 PM

^ I think you're arguing with someone on your side(?) I don't think 12:05's coming back. We behooved his feelings. If I'm wrong, then I ask 12:05 for his behoovement.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL... this article: too easy


"Buckeye Shrimper" guy is fffffffuuuuuurrrrrrrriiiiiiioooooouuuusssssss (as obviously evidenced here) that he didn't get the part that Jared Leto won. But a reminder, it's a film, NOT real life. Sorry :(


I'd await your inevitable crazy string of queer schizo posts, but I'll just let you stew in your own little dementia here :)
