The White Stripes - 2005 - Brazil

On 1 June 2005 The White Stripes were the first rock band allowed to perform at the long standing Teatro Amazonas Opera House in Manaus, Brazil, located within the Amazonian rainforest. The show generated a huge response among local fans and the musically curious with tickets quickly selling out. Video screens were then set up outside to allow for the over flow. Here's the footage.

Smashing Pumpkins - 1991 - Chicago

This footage finds The Smashing Pumpkins doing an in-store performance at Reckless Records, Chicago on June 21, 1991. The video quality is not ideal, but the audio makes up for it. Thanks to lellius for posting these clips on YouTube.

The Mutant - Outer Limits episode w/Warren Oates

During the first season of The Outer Limits, this episode titled "The Mutant" aired on March 16, 1964. Most notable to myself is the portrayal of the mutated space researcher Reese Fowler by none other than a favorite actor of mine - Warren Oates.

By way of an introduction to this episode, here's the opening narration:

"At this very moment, our horizon is menaced by two explosive forces, both man-made. One is a deadly wonder; the other, wondrously alive. Both forces have compelled Man to reach out for worlds beyond his own, new worlds where he may find peace, and room to grow. This is the first of those new worlds. The United Nations of Earth have claimed it, and called it Annex One. It is almost identical to Earth, except that there is no night--sunlight is constant. Early reports from the small expeditionary team stationed on Annex One indicated that the ancient planet appeared suitable for colonization by Earth's overflowing population. But the most recent reports have contained unspoken, oddly disturbing undercurrents, and the United Space Agency has decided to investigate. The man chosen: Dr. Evan Marshall, psychiatrist."

Daniel Johnston talks with Gibby Haynes

Daniel Johnston speaks with Gibby Haynes from the Butthole Surfers about a variety of topics. This is extra footage from "The Devil and Daniel Johnston" and was probably filmed around 1987 which was also when Daniel Johnston recorded with the Butthole Surfers for A Texas Trip compilation - also heard below.
