    Ohhhh I want it! I just got a new laptop and have to start my sticker collection again! I ripped my Jagermeister sticker to bits trying to transfer it over! 😥

    A booooooom sticker would be a zillion times cooler than a jager one!

  • what do we win?

    • a thick envelope of booooooom stickers! (two prizes)

  • Just two winners? Good lawd!!! How ’bout I give you fiddy cents and you put one sticker and two used sticker backs in my hand?

  • gradfilm? Can we see it?

  • ya i just might put it online

  • Any chance of a competition I can enter that doesn’t involve Facebook? I don’t have that and though the pull of a Booooooom sticker is strong I won’t be joining any time… or how about a swap-shop? Just think of all the radness you’d receive in the post. I’ll start you off by sending you beans; you can send me send a sticker…
    Chris Micro- What you got to swap?

  • stickers are going to be available here pretty soon, keep an eye out.

  • i got stickers. mostly promo stickers I’ve made for myself and/or my hip-hop crew. and stamps. LOL. Oh and buttons. I’ll post’em on my site if people really want to swap. hehe.

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
