Today’s my birthday!

Hooray for October 3rd! Last year I went all out and had a Sushi, Sunglasses & Sake birthday at a big Japanese restaurant with about 20 friends. This year it’s Mexican – I’ll let you know how it goes. (I’m celebrating tonight so if the site hasn’t been updated on Monday assume it went well.)

I am taking the rest of the day off and dedicating this PBF comic to myself:

Have a great weekend everyone!

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    i just realized that a bunch of people all wearing sunglasses has so much more cachet than say, a bunch of people all with extremely red eyes.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

skrillex-redlips-gta04skrillex-redlips-gta02 skrillex-redlips-gta03

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.

Amazing Collaborative Drawing Performance Between Human Artist and Robot Arm


“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.
