Radiohead with marching band!

Apparently I missed the Grammys the other night, I never seem to know when these big award shows are on. My only regret is missing this performance by Radiohead (just Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood) with the USC Trojan marching band.

I would love to hear the whole album performed like this. Amazing.

  • If you haven’t heard the string quartet tribute of OK Computer, please purchase it ASAP! It’s called “Strung Out on OK Computer” and — I know this is utter blasphemy — but sometimes I like it better than the original.

    I was pleasantly surprised flicking through the channels and it came on. A little bit over the top, but great in it’s own right.

  • yea Strung Out was pretty cool, I remember really liking a couple of the versions alot – Exit Music was awesome I remember

  • i can’t say i usually enjoy ‘watching’ radiohead, but the usc trojan marching band brought it big time. i was in the band in high school before it was at all cool. i feel better about it, now ;).

  • yea i love that they were fully yelling in the background

  • yeah, you can see the smiles on the faces of the guys playing percussion.

  • OHMAN this was asuch a breath of fresh air for the grammys 🙂 :]

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.
