Caught these pictures whilst browsing the MOMA upcoming exhibitions. There's one on everyday sound which I'll be missing since I might be here (NY) by the time it opens. There is a Taiwanese artist Hong-Ka Wang who explores everyday ambient sounds and invited some factory workers in for some sound exploration for one of her projects; these are two captures from the mini-doco which I thought was beautiful.
Struggling in the pursuit for purpose. Though at the end of the day, it really doesn't fucking matter.
I take a lot of pride in my friendship with Igor because we are many world's apart, but somehow a bond formed between the two of us because what we had in common was most important to us.
He is not dead, he is merely moving overseas to pursue bigger and better things.
Although quick to judge on how silly this man is, it is heart-breaking to see that he had no peers around. Was he drinking alone that night? What led him to drink so much as to pass out without any friends around? Was he lonely? Or maybe he had way too much of a good time on his own? I hope you are ok, drunkandpassedoutonstepsbro.
Quarter of a century and this is all I came up with so far.
1. Nothing great ever came out of sticking to the rules
2. Good guys never come first
3. Patience is a virtue
4. Be passionate about all the things you do
5. You are your own best friend
6. Everything is relative
7. Be honest in everything you do
8. Treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen
9. Don't think whether you can or can't, think how and when
10. Don't be a tightass
11. Ignorance is bliss
Hasbro has been re-releasing old Star Wars action figurines as part of their vintage series; currently in Australia is wave 2 which consists of characters from Revenge of the Sith. Wave 3 will be out shortly and will consist of bros from Return of the Jedi. Already have my eye on two of them Worst thing is guessing when they'll be arriving in stores.
A second series has been announced, after a ridiculously popular first series run. This Green Machine has a blog post full of awesome pictures of the first series.
The second series will feature artists including Andrew Bell, Gary Ham, Doktor A and a few from the folk behind the Android team at Google, huzzah! Won't be out until sometime in the first quarter of 2011 so there is only a teaser banner.
The good news is a standard 3" vinyl figurine will be available in November in limited quantities. Sexy beast, ain't it? Looking at between AUD$10-$15 each.
And to top it off, a Do-It-Yourself one will be available for you to customise. Also at 3" and will be disassemble-able for easier decoration.
Will be stocking these via Klaus und Sven
After news broke that Cheezburger Network's Ben Huh was offering to buy the ailing Reddit, it was natural to investigate what role Ben Huh plays and what he did to capitalise on something I'd dare say is phenomenal on the internet: lolcats (cat memes). Reading through his blog, he posted up a talk he did at a Ted conference in Seattle around April about the "19 debts" he owed himself; i.e. his 19 goals he has set himself out to do.
Directed by Swedish director Jessica Nilsson, caught this one at Flickerfest two years ago at a best-of compilation screening. It's pretty morbid, but everything about the pace, the music, the vintage film filter and the fact that it made very little sense made this a crowd favourite. Towards the end there is a cat on a piano. Yes.
It's a good idea to be inspired by your favourite music.

This song's getting a few rotations on Triple J and featured on a lot of music blogs. And there's a good reason for that: it's mighty catchy and dreampoppy, reminiscent of a less noisy 80s shoegazer thing combined with a drop of the Cardigans. Combine and picture the following words: teenage yearning, lazy summer, weed & cats, drone. I've an unfortunate gut feeling this is going to be a one-off buzzband, so it' really up to the rest of the album and what they plan to do next; but Boyfriend is currently on a bit of a repeat on my winampz.
“...songs about summer and the sun and the ocean and being a lazy creep...”
