Eyewitness news, backin it up.

September 20, 2010

It’s all going on in Kansas City. Firstly this woman appears on some low-rent news station giving an oscar winning performance for her eyewitness report. Then someone takes it, gives it the vocoder effect and hey presto a genuine chart classic. Nice.

Skateistan

September 19, 2010

Every day I seem to read more and more about these guys and what they are up to. So I thought I would add to the noise and write a post about em.

In case you don’t know who or what Skateistan is. Founded in 2008 in the war torn country of Afghanistan, Skateistan was set up as the world’s first co-educational skateboard school. It takes the displaced youth of Kabul and through skateboarding teaches them about cross-cultural relations, education and personal development.

It amazes me that in the midst of all the one of the bloodiest and politically unstable countries. A group people/volunteers have taken it upon themselves to help the next generation of kids in Kabul and hopefully give them brighter futures.

Great stuff here.

Empire state of mind

September 19, 2010

Colin Hesterly is a very talented individual who will definitely go places if his work to date is anything to go by. Still studying in The Florida his work ranges from animation, motion graphics to photography. He’s got a cinematic eye and there’s a real commercial flavour to all his work.

Nice stuff here.

Tune in, pay up

August 30, 2010

No frills Tune Hotel has arrived in London. Tune are a chain of hotels from The Malaysia and The indonesia, Tune specialize in “five star beds, 1 star price” plus tax, plus towels, plus cleaning, plus anything you can think of.

Basically the room is cheap, but you pay for all the bits you normally expect on top, like towels and electricity, a window (ok, i made the last one up).

The only bit that confuses me is why cleaning is an added extra. Why would you have to pay for cleaning, surely that’s a given. If it isn’t imagine the state of the room if it went a year with no-one opting to pay for cleaning, nice.

Cheap frills and dirty weekends away here.

I have the power

August 27, 2010

Whichever way you look at it power lines are an ugly and unsightly necessity of life. But Choi and Shine Architects based in The Boston have devised an ingenious way to make these eyesores beautiful and elegant. Their human pylons alter with the landscape so that when the electrical lines ascend a hill, the pylon figures imitate a climbing person. The pylon-figures can also be placed in pairs, walking side by side or glancing at each other or holding hands.

Nice work here.

Rubik’s Cubism

August 27, 2010

Invader, an artist from The France is most famous for putting space invader characters in urban locations. Now he’s turned his hand to another 80’s phenomenon the Rubik’s cube. Most people would struggle to even make one side of a Rubik’s cube let alone a whole image. His collection features portraits and popular culture as well as historical events. Check it out here.

Teenage mutant ninja dogs

August 27, 2010

Sandy Paws is an animal “grooming” shop based in “Old Town” Yucca Valley. Look it up on google maps, it looks thoroughly depressing. Clearly if you live in Yucca Valley California, their isn’t a whole lot going on. So what better way to spend your time than to dress your dog up to look like a camel, or a ninja turtle, or even a peacock. I shit you not. Sandy Paws you should be ashamed. And no I don’t think Cindy enjoys it, as you say,  (Cindy is the dog at the centre of each transformation by the way) just look at the fear in poor Cindy’s face when you dressed her up as a dragon. Roooaaar!

You get up, you get fed, you get taken for a walk and then you settle down to watch Family Guy. Just your average day in dogsville.
