Heartbeats ... Which One?

Which version do you prefer

This one by the Royal Teeth ...

Or this one by Jose Gonzalez ...

Relient K 'Collapsible Lung'

The music is not really my style but this lyric-video is awesome.

Memory Suitcases

Can't stop looking at these photographs. They have a very good 'feel'.

"For his project “Memory Suitcases,” Israeli photographer Yuval Yairi used his suitcases as a “canvas” for displaying his photographs. Each of the images shows a photograph of a scene in Israel displayed on the surface of old luggage."


A Silent Film 'Danny, Dakota & the Wishing Well'

Not bad, sounds a bit like The Killers.


Guess who?!

"Medicom present series 26 of their iconic Bearbrick toys, featuring, as usual, all manner of cultural figures and pop culture references."


Moderat 'Bad Kingdom'

Hand-drawn imagery tell a story of corruption and greed. Director & Production: Pfadfinderei. From the album 'Moderat II', out in August 2013.

Dorit Chrysler 'Avalanche'

The theremin goddess stars in a Brooklyn-filmed ode to insomnia. I like!

Soko 'Monster Love'

The multitalented musician and actress Soko duets with Ariel Pink over a bittersweet LA tale.

Rodney Brooks 'Why We Will Rely On Robots'

Ted Talk by Rodney Brooks, he builds robots based on biological principles of movement and reasoning. The goal: a robot who can figure things out.

"Scaremongers play on the idea that robots will simply replace people on the job. In fact, they can become our essential collaborators, freeing us up to spend time on less mundane and mechanical challenges. Rodney Brooks points out how valuable this could be as the number of working-age adults drops and the number of retirees swells. He introduces us to Baxter, the robot with eyes that move and arms that react to touch, which could work alongside an aging population -- and learn to help them at home, too."

Pimp My Ride

I can see myself driving around in this vehicle. Wonderful calligraphy work by Niels Shoe Meulman.

"By the time he was eighteen, Niels Shoe Meulman was already a graffiti legend tagging the word “Shoe” on walls. From the 80s, 90s to present time, he has formed a graf crew, founded his own design company, partnered in an advertising agency, and exhibited his work in international art shows. Shoe Meulman has gained much experience and has certainly kept busy. His latest artwork can be viewed in this post, and past calligraphy pieces can be seen here."

The Changing Shape Of Cinema

Very interesting. The History of Aspect Ratio. John Hess traces the evolution of the screen shape from the silent film days through the widescreen explosion of the 50s, to the aspect ratio of modern digital cameras.
This lesson is part of the FilmmakerIQ course: "Everything You Need To Know about Aspect Ratio".

Moones 'Better Energy'

A very deep research project here. A band playing a song, Moones playing 'Better Energy' while drinking beer. Click the buttons to watch them after drinking 20, 40, 60 or 80 beers. BTW they're british.


The making of:

The award winning animation:

WTF??!! Just received this email from Pinterest. Pinned this one a while ago, can't even remember when.

I love the animation of this video by Laura Sicouri & Kadavre Exquis. Animation & music / voice over fits perfectly.

M.I.A. 'Bring The Noize'

The new video for 'Bring The Noize' from M.I.A., produced by Switch and Surkin. From M.I.A.'s fourth album, 'Matangi,' due out this fall.

I'm Thirsty

Really ... I am ...

Six Flags Magic Mountain

Sit down ... full screen ... hold the table ...

LEGO Handbags

Cute, very cute ... and very expensive these LEGO handbags $ 180. I would use it.

"Etsy shop agabag is selling a collection of LEGO Handbags. They’re made by Agnieszka Biernacka who sews the bricks together and lines the bag with satin."

And Again ... Condom Wrappers

I know, easy to like. It would be nicer if the text was printed ON the condom.


"Conceptual pop culture condom wrappers created by Italian artist Benedetto Papi."

At McDonald’s

Some nice photo's of things you see at McDonald's.


Feminist Muslim Art

Feminist ... Muslim ... Art ... did you expect that these three words combined would be fun? Well, Sarah Maple makes it fun. Fun in a good way. I think this is more effective than a serious debate about the three subjects.

Love Hurts Kit

Didn't love work out? Artist Melanie Chernock comes to the rescue with the Love Hurts Kit.

'The appropriate red and white kit is made up of dark chocolate, vodka, bubble bath soap, a candle with matches, candy hearts, a mix CD, and tissues."


Chinese Sex Doll Factory

Reading the title I guess a couple of people think that working in this factory is the best thing ever! I doubt it. I think it's more of a cock-block. A hilarious one though.

"The Jiamei plastic toy company, based in the suburb of Ningbo, Zhejiang province, China, produces cheap sex dolls at an average price of 100RMB (£10), and has done so for several years. According to the company, more than 50,000 sex dolls are sold to the domestic market in Japan and Korea each year."
