The Flaming Lips: Christmas On Mars

Today, a quick note on pop culture. As many of you hip, edgy chicks know, today marks the release of the new Flaming Lips movie "Christmas on Mars: A Fantastical Film Freakout". The flick is a science fiction film that marks the directorial debut of Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. What's more, the movie has been more than seven years in the making with no-budget to speak of and mostly filmed on Coyne's Oklahoma property. It stars members of the band, along with Comedian Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live), actor/indie rocker Steve Burns (Netherbeast Incorporated, Blue's Clues, Songs for Dustmites) and actor Adam Goldberg (Dazed and Confused, Two Days in Paris). According to the blurb:

It's Christmastime, and the colonization of Mars is underway. However, when an oxygen generator and a gravity control pod malfunction, Major Syrtis (the Lips' Steven Drozd) and his team (including the Lips' Michael Ivins) fear the worst. Syrtis also hallucinates about the birth of a baby, and many other strange things. Meanwhile, a compassionate alien superbeing (Coyne) arrives, inspiring and helping the isolated astronauts.

Here's the tripped out trailer courtesy of the Youtubes.

So, it's basically guaranteed to be a romp. If not, we'll be really disappointed. (And we're not saying that just because we have some huge Flaming Lips fans here.) But, look out for our review of Christmas on Mars in the next few days.
