Oh. My. GOODNESS! Theresa Andersson. You had me at hello, and at the 3:34 mark I decided I would marry you (I’m sorry you have no say in this matter). Look at those little feet go.

Another video below!

    this is fantastic, but there’s something fishy about how easy it was for her to sync up that record…no adjusting, it just magically starts right on beat. that should boggle the mind of anyone who’s ever worked with turntables.

  • I needed a smile from the inside today. this lady is the definition of JOY.
    Thanks for sharing her with us!

  • I just smiled ’til it hurt. Theresa, you’re my Norwegian hero.

    Wow, she is amazing! She’s literally a one-person band! I stumbled across a song she did called “Straight” with the band Assembly of Dust. You can download it free at their main website http://www.aodust.com, just have to give your email addy. I figured I’d share that with everyone. I really wanna see her live, hopefully she comes to the NY area.

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.
