Daft Punk and an Art Punk
This video is why today I am feeling, to quote Whithnail from Withnail & I, "like a pig has shat in my head"; I was out reliving my disco youth at the absolutely incredible Daft Punk gig at Coney Island last night. Equal parts rock show, rave and stadium house visual art installation, shit was like nothing I have ever seen before and I see on average 2 concerts a week people. Then I was up until 3am last night because I was watching the just above average DC-LA match on DVR. I should have skipped the DVR and just watched this clip from the local DC news station.
The star of this clip is not Goldenballs but quasi-legendary soccer agit-humorist Thomas Binkley. Did you notice the back of his custom number 23 Galaxy kit?
Priceless. Maybe you have seen one of his earlier pieces, such as his infamous Calvin-augmented DC United kit. The soccer dads love it, Barra Brava not so much.
Currently a resident of Northern Virginia and a New York Red Bull season ticket holder, Mr. Binkley is not only a friend but a hero. He was voted Red Bull fan of the year last season, no doubt due to the fact that he drove to every home game last season from Virginia. This year he's upping the ante by running the gauntlet with these licence plates.
Binks I think I may have just put out a fatwa on you in the capital area but I know you wouldn't have it any other way.
