  • magnus

    1st~ Animal
    This has to be the best. It just has to.
    PB&J, Punks Jump Up, Crookers. Everyone
    wants a piece of it. I’m on the bandwagon

    2nd~ Song For No One
    Its the catchiest friendliest toe tapper.
    It makes me want to smile.

    3rd~ Miike Snow vs. Vampire Weekend
    My favorite collab in awhile.
    Kids Don’t Stand A Chance made party proof.

    .Oh my goodness! I am a hugeeee Mike fan. Probably his oungest , also. I’m fourteen. I discovered him in Urban Outfitters and I’ve been hooked ever since. Though its his most famous, I’d have to go with animal. The lyrics really speak to me and I used them in numerous art projects. Wow, I love you guys!

    • http://therewasrain.com cory gibbons

      just to give you a heads up it’s them not him 😉

  • Robbie

    Animal.

    I will give you a huge hug if you pick me!

    Burial :)

  • http://www.tarzanchild.com bneuf

    I think, A Horse Is Not A Home, because what the hell does that even mean?! But I love it.
    Thanks for this give away!

  • MEGZ

    “Animal” makes me dance around like a lunatic. I hear it in my head when I walk down the street, and instantly shake my moneymaker. True story.

  • JoeSchmoe

    “Song for know one”, “Animal” is a close second and “Horse without a home” with amazing lyrics such as “Oh god, i think i’m dying, and these drinks were just poured…” brilliant.

  • Cathy

    Animal!
    I’m a hot girl that wants to take her boyfriend to go see animal!
    (this is not a clever rouse!)

  • Marina

    Animal for sure!

  • jordan

    ‘Animal’ is the song that introduced me to Miike Snow; so infectious! ‘A Horse Is Not A Home’ is such a fantastic song. So two? yes.

  • catherine

    Animal is the best!
    p.s. it’s not like my boyfriend asked me to enter because he really wants to go or anything…

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
