Spike Jonze Interview

Moriarty over at Ain’t It Cool News recently posted a great interview with Spike Jonze. If you are half as excited for Where The Wild Things Are as I am you need to read this interview! Now someone just needs to turn Strega Nona into a movie and my life will be complete (I love kids books if you haven’t noticed).

  • This is easily my most anticipated movie… ever. Well except He-Man Masters of the Universe.

  • Spike Jones is a genius.
    I am so glad he is doing this adaptation.

  • The only thing about this movie that has me even MORE excites is the fact that Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is doing the soundtrack. SHIT YES. i love their music. i love this book, i love spike jonze and i can’t WAIT to see this.

    Yo Matt, there’s already a He-Man movie starring Dolph Lundgren! HAHA.. probably not what u expected tho… Oh so horrible, yet oh soo FUNNY…

  • Yah, that’s the one I was talking about, haha. When I was a kid that was so huge! A He-Man movie…. with Dolph Lundgren!!! Didn’t really last too long once I saw the movie.

  • Shinead

    SERIOUSLY?! I’m all over it!

  • xpez

    I hope its not lame.

    Looks kind of like an eighties FX style.

    Hopefully…it will work.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
