An Awesome Book

Dallas Clayton just sent over my very own copy of An Awesome Book, his children’s book about the importance of dreams. He toured around reading his book to as many kids as he possible and for every book he sold, he gave one away. I have to admit I got a little bit emotional as I read it, books like this are necessary!

  • This book has been popping up everywhere! He deserves it, : ). Nice things like this need to happen more often.

  • Vim

    Dallas Clayton is a good man for making a book like this for kids, Kids have very little inspiration these days, other authors of children’s book should follow in his footsteps and create books with imagination like this…I’ll be purchasing this book for my niece and nephew. Has Dallas Clayton created any more books?

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.
