Lou Reed,
While I was a music journalist before I was a film one, I couldn't even fathom writing a proper obituary of rock n' roll icon and pioneer Lou Reed right now, who passed away today at the age of 71 of undisclosed reasons (the former Velvet Underground singer underwent a liver transplant in May). For that, you could read the obit over at our friends' music site, Consequence Of Sound. But Reed meant a lot to everyone here, certainly this writer and pretty much anyone who ever cared about some of the fundamentals of rock n' roll.

Well, the result of one of the unlikeliest collaborations in some time here. As reported about a month ago, Darren Aronofsky took a gig directing the first video from Metallica and Lou Reed's absurd Lulu album, and it's now in the can and ready for your eyes. Considering the whole musical collaboration is based on German expressionsist Frank Wedekind's controversial plays about a serial killing teenage prostitute, the video for "The View" (not "Iced Honey" as first reported) is surprisingly tame.
