Mysterious Letters

This is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. Michael Crowe and Lenka Clayton plan to write letters to everyone in the entire world. They have started by mailing personal handwritten letters, notes, and postcards to 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall. Nearly everyone in the village received something! It caused such a stir that BBC Newsline actually picked up the story. The two artists are now documenting the project on their blog, Mysterious Letters.

  • What a great idea! I wonder how people respond to receiving these? Are they pleasantly surprised or a little freaked out?

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.
