    So I take it these are people in pop culture, just who exactly? I’m afraid I jumped off the TV train a few years back.

  • Dean

  • Rebecca

    impressive!
    it took me a second to realise where I knew them from…like I thought they were something significant :) still, these are really good

  • Rachel Mychajluk

    Beautifully executed, especially considering they’re done in chalk pastel. I love the use of a mid tone with added lights and darks.

  • Pamela

    its that feeling when you zone out completely and everything in your vision blurs except the image or person you are focused on.

  • kate

  • lapetitefaon

    OMG!!! I LOVE THESE!!! The Hills is my ultimate guilty pleasure and I don’t know why I’m so amused by these, but I am!

    • http://alois.carbonmade.com/ Maciel

      I love how you’re the only person to actually admit what show this is from. It seems like it really is a bit of a guilty pleasure. I’m not making fun or being mean or anything, I just thought it was kind of funny.

      • lapetitefaon

        ha, after reading through the comments, you’re right! No one mentioned the name of the show! I felt almost self-conscious typing “the hills” even on something anonymous as this!

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity

okgo-upsidedowninsideout

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
