    Not all is good if you have to live beside it.

    I live right beside what is called an “intervention” and I witnessed the bulldozing of the road and the landing and I’m forced to “participate” everyday by seeing something so out of place, it can only be called an abomination. The intervention called “Big Blue” by Gustavo Godoy is completely in my face. When i moved to the high desert, I chose it for its privacy and beauty. From now on, I’m the one who must “participate” in some crude artist struggle and remember on a daily basis how the valley looked before it was desecrated. I’ll remember when it was untouched and perfect. Now, a color so unnatural, its glare rings loud any time there’s sunlight. This Big Blue is by definition a monstrosity. A degenerate production that facilitated the destruction of what was once a quiet country neighborhood. The selfish and ill thought out participation in my valley will linger even after that eyesore has withered and rotted. The concept , does not belong here. It is neither attractive nor facilitates positive discourse. All it’s accomplished is to advance the destruction of a piece of virgin desert. It could have been done anywhere in LA which is already destroyed, instead it’s destroyed something that was in complete harmony to gratify an ego. I remain a victim of this so called art but art would infer creative skill and imagination produced for beauty or emotional power but this blot on the landscape has neither. Its just egotism. Please, in the future, give much deeper thought to the ramifications of your actions. Consider the environment and the people it’ll directly affect.

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.
