    what a strange person in the 3rd. love the 4th!

    the owl one is pretty weird.there’s somethin about him,i don’t know,he looks poised…

  • randy

    almost every photographer featured on this site seems occupied with landscapes, animals, or the characteristics of nature. Is that your personal taste booooom? Or are those the themes of this generation of photographers?

    • i guess the things you are noticing are simply my personal taste – what else would you like to see featured (what else is there to photograph, other than people, animals, and landscapes)?

      • randy

        i enjoy your choices much, so it’s definitely not criticism. I think photography has shifted from people as the main focus, to nature as the main focus. Or is that just a stupid observation

      • it’s not a stupid observation! i think there is definitely a certain style of photography i like to post here more than there is a shift away from portraits of people in general.

    the last one looks like a face 🙂

    That owl interaction would have changed my life.

  • Daniel

    I agree that there is a trend among the photographers posted here. However, the same can be said about the artists. There must be several artists on here that I swear could have posted more art under a different name. Artists draw inspiration off one another and it shows. Nothing bad about it at all. This is just where our generation of art is heading.

    Cool photos. I love the owl.

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.
