Did you miss the Les Paul 96th birthday celebration Google doodle from June 9th?  Well, check it out, play something, record it…

…and then compare what you did with the three that guitar phenom Kaki King did for Brazil’s MTV Hive:

Further proof that this is one of the best Google doodles conceived thus far.

Michel Gondry

Well, I’m excited about his upcoming Be Kind, Rewind with Jack Black and Mos Def. I loved what he did with Björk’s latest video for “Declare Independence” (as I was with his prior work with Björk and others). I’ve loved his prior movies (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep to name a couple). Now he’s already working on a new one…

Although his latest film hasn’t been released yet and he already has several projects in the works, Michel Gondry told the MTV Movies Blog that he’s currently writing The Return of the Ice Kings. Gondry’s still at work on the screenplay, but the name alone sounds fascinating, and the content, well: “I’m writing a story about kids who invent a water that makes you hear music when you drink it,” Gondry said. “It’s going to be a scientific story, but completely unrealistic.” Sounds more whimsical than scientific, but Gondry would probably be the expert on these matters, as he spent last year as MIT’s artist in residence and has come up with some fantastic technologies before.
