    Does anyone remember Tom Green dying on a street of New York as a startling performance? Oddly enough, I thought it was brilliant.

    Here, have 3 screenshots from that episode.

    The third picture is from Dia Beacon. He was laying outside of this great giant metal spiral things that he could have posed to die in, which would have been better.

Music Video: “Hamidasumo!” (Heaven & Hell Remix)


There’s nothing that could be said to prepare you for this bizarre video for the Heaven & Hell remix of You’ll Melt More!’s “Hamidasumo!” you’ll just have to watch it below! The song is excruciating though so you can let me know in the comments how far into it you got before you had to mute it.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!
