Bartkira: Official Animated Trailer

Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey’s fantastic Bartkira project just gets bigger and better as time goes on. Their labour of love, to have artists all over the world re-create Akira using Simpsons characters, is one of my favourite crowd-sourced projects ever! You can see a map here of all the contributing artists’ locations.

Kaitlin Sullivan organized a group of over 50 artists to create a trailer for the animated version of Bartkira and made it look like something that would have appeared on an old Bartman VHS. The results are amazing. Watch the Bartkira trailer below.

Music Video: Kendrick Lamar “Alright”

Kendrick Lamar gets an absolute masterpiece from director Colin Tilley for his latest release, “Alright”. The striking visuals poetically address gun violence, police brutality, and the possibility of peace in these times, a recurring theme on his album, To Pimp a Butterfly.

This video and his show-stopping performance at the BET Awards (see here, watch till the end) are exactly what has been missing in mainstream hip hop for so long. It’s exciting to see a conscious artist making powerful music on the largest stage.

Watch the provocative video for “Alright” below.
