The Hood Internet > Girltalk

Last summer it was Girltalk, this summer it’s all about The Hood Internet. I actually paid for the second Girltalk album (what was I smoking?) and nearly had a brain hemorrhage when he started cutting up Avril Lavigne. What happened to mixes that actually maintained a flow and actually let a track breathe for a bit? I guess everyone and their helper monkeys are mash-up djs now but The Hood Internet are legit – I mean they got a mixtape with all mashes of Lykke Li songs! I have linked a few of their mixtapes (Grab the Chicago one, thank me later.) And yes, they let the blends last for longer than 3.14 seconds.

  • jennilee

    yes. they are good good good.
    four tet vs. murs vs. slug – the perfect hip hop remix if i must say so. suprisingly i also appreciate the crystal castles vs. the pack track.

  • eric

    NO BODY compares to GIRL TALK in mashups! no way!

    • http://therewasrain.com cory gibbons

      girl talk is great but ‘e-603’ and ‘easter egg’ are both close, and i’d say often times better.

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
