Nettle's newest album, El Resplandor: The Shining in Dubai, released last month by Sub Rosa, comes with an awesome premise: it is a speculative soundtrack for an unmade remake of Stanley Kubrick's film, The Shining, set in a mothballed luxury hotel in Dubai.
3. The animator who made the Tintin video that went viral last week was invited to the Tintin premier and offered a job by Steven Spielberg.

4. Couple married for 72 years died one hour apart:
"It was really strange, they were holding hands, and dad stopped breathing but I couldn't figure out what was going on because the heart monitor was still going," said Dennis Yeager. "But we were like, he isn't breathing. How does he still have a heart beat? The nurse checked and said that's because they were holding hands and it's going through them. Her heart was beating through him and picking it up."

"They were still getting her heartbeat through him," said Donna Sheets.
Via.

5. Secret Cinema tickets going on sale tomorrow.

6. Tenacious Toys has those Gary Baseman vinyl figures I mentioned the other day.
