  • Joel

    LOVING IT right now!!! I saw Mother Mother free on Sunday (they were AMAZING) and the medal ceremony last night… we were going to see Alexisonfire afterwards but it was cancelled… oh well. Still a week and a half more!

  • this woman is stuck in southeastern america… so excited about the olympics.. and iginla’s hat trick, of course!

  • aw, you guys are so much more civil than americans.

  • GT

    not to knock our national anthem, but i sorta wish we had a better song to sing on occasions like this. actually scratch that, not “better”, but maybe less formal, more upbeat. is that unpatriotic? ah well. looks wicked though. oh to be back in the homeland now!

  • lapetitefaon

    Canada made a great national anthem choice, the US’s national anthem sadly does not lend itself to happy sing-a-longs 🙁 jealous

  • Vancouver in a week, I can’t wait!

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.
