Landfill Harmonic / The Recycled Orchestra

Landfill Harmonic / The Recycled Orchestra
This is 11 minutes of pure inspiration. “Landfill Harmonic” is an upcoming documentary about a tiny village called Cateura, built atop garbage, in Paraguay. More specifically it is about Luis Szaran, Favio Chavez Moran, and a group of children who play in an orchestra with instruments made of trash. I got a little emotional watching this.

Watch below!

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


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.
