Okay yes, I know, enough already: but what the heck? I told you the other day that Michael Stipe had commissioned a bunch of videos for the new REM album, Collapse Into Now. The album–which is great– and is streaming now on NPR’s website–hits stores next week. Now it seems that of the 12 tracks, James Franco has directed two: for the songs “Blue” and “That Someone Is You.” Franco apparently did this during “alternate” hours on Earth’s mirror planet, Franconia. Some of the other directors on the “Collapse”project are Britain’s Sam Taylor-Wood, who directed “Nowhere Boy,” famed documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, Tom Gilroy, and Stipe’s sister, Lynda.
