This is an insane body of work, presented in an interesting (and surprising, considering the source) way. The engineering and design is by Instrument Marketing (Mike Wood’s pals) and Marcos Wescamp. Check it out.
Face3 Media put this animation together for Kidz are so Small.
My friend Lance has a new video clip of The Arcade Fire up on vbs.tv. Lance makes alot of great work, including music videos, concert dvds, feature films. Here’s what he said about The Arcade Fire clip:
The new episode of “Bangs” is from some footage Spike, Aubree and I shot with the Arcade Fire during their shows at Judson Church in February. We were getting prepared to film the band the following night for a proper concert shoot, but they had been battling illness. Win wrote out a note card saying that he hadn’t been able to speak all day and that they might have to cancel. He suggested that we quickly grab whatever cameras we had on hand, and follow him into the crowd at the end of their shortened set. This is what happened.
Boing-Boing has a great post about Apple and EMI’s new deal as well as a large list of articles about Apple, iTunes, DRM and other related topics.
I got my new NikeID kicks today, fresh from Qingdao China.
Subtly is not on the menu in the world of NikeID so I give you the Zesty Italians… one of the most obnoxious combinations I could manage without looking like something Punky Brewster would wear. So far the Shox make it feel like I’m constantly walking downhill, which in essence makes me feel faster. I’ll leave more comments about the quality later.
Super bad ass!
The first external project (that I know of at least) to use the Casa Framework is this gravis timeline. For those of you who don’t know, Casa is the brainchild of Aaron. He has been working on it for years and earlier this year (with the help of some other contributers, including Mike C.), Aaron released it as open source code for everyone to freely use. Congratulations on this milestone Aaron.
A good run down of the major Start-page competitors.
Create new outfits with clothing & accessories from all over the internet. Nice interface with drag and drop, item resizing and each item links to its shop page. So easy and fun. Mostly for girls I think.
Nice fullscreen flash site with creepy / odd / funny animations.
