Beastie Boys

The Beastie Boys are only topped by the Pixies in my book, so there’s no humanly possible way I could be more excited about this trailer and the upcoming awesomeness.

PS: Holy celebrities, Batman.


Happy Weekend

A Sequence of Lines Traced by 500 Individuals

A Sequence of Lines Traced by Five Hundred Individuals from clement valla on Vimeo.

A Sequence of Lines Traced by Five Hundred Individuals is an online drawing tool that lets users do just one thing – trace a line. Each new user only sees the latest line drawn, and can therefore only trace this latest imperfect copy. As the line is reproduced over and over, it changes and evolves – kinks, trembling motions and errors are exaggerated through the process.

I love how the acceleration resembles a lightning storm. {via kottke}


Happy Weekend

Year of the Rabbit

Year of the Rabbit from Frater on Vimeo.

I’m a little late in welcoming the Chinese New Year, but this video makes it all worth the wait. Promise. Super rad graphics with a well thought out execution. I’m not up to speed on my Chinese astrology, but from what I’ve read this year – the year of the Rabbit – is supposed to be the opposite of the last. Whereas the Lion (RE: 2010) is full of ups and downs and topsy-turviness, the Rabbit is more consistent with lots of emphasis on following the path laid out for you. I think I love you, 2011. {via The Fox is Black}

Seven Henrietta Street

After attending the Kate Spade party at Alt Summit I really gained a new appreciation for the level of creativity infused into the iconic brand. Check out this video – Seven Henrietta Street – created by Kinga Burza, it made me fall all over again. (Music: I Will Never Love You More by Soko.)
