Alfredo Adán took it upon himself to make a crosswalk in Los Angeles a little more fun. Watch the video below.
After I shared this EPIC VIDEO, a member of our Facebook group Pedro Piccinini (thank you sir!) pointed me to this glorious Instagram account: @theMonoNeon. Dywane MonoNeon Thomas Jr. plays music to the exact tune of random internet videos, everything from stand up comedy sets to scenes from famous films. People like this are what I love most about the Internet.
To really get a sense for what I’m talking about watch this video of an angry grandpa destroying a PS4 accompanied by music from MonoNeon below.
If you’re having a bad day today, just be glad you aren’t this kid. At an art exhibition in Taipei called “Face of Leonardo: Images of a Genius”, a 12-year-old Taiwanese boy tripped and fell into a 350-year-old oil painting by Paolo Porpora, putting his hand right through the artwork. The painting called “Flowers” is valued at $1.5 million. (source)
Hopefully the gallery staff have some duct tape! Photos of the damage below!
“Albert The Dog” is the latest #Campaign4Change short from Ray-Ban’s Never Hide Films project, directed by Pensacola, with music by Giraffage. This strange little short film, starts with the twist rather than ends with it, and acts as a sort of reminder to take time to love those in your life. Watch the film below.
Yours Truly has been working with a group of filmmakers and composers to produce a series of creative, music driven, narrative shorts for Ray Ban’s channel, Never Hide Films. We had the fun job of overseeing the film posters for the series.
This latest poster was created by one of our talented friends, Vancouver-based illustrator Katie So, and it follows posters we commissioned by Hellen Jo, Brecht Vandenbroucke and Andrea Wan.
Stay tuned for the latest #campaign4change short film “Albert The Dog”, directed by the duo known as Pensacola, with music by Giraffage. It’s a bizarre tale about how far you’ll go for your loved ones. Have a look at the rest of the posters in the series below.
If you are bored at work right now, this is relevant. You can now convert any image into a million emojis thanks to Eric Andrew Lewis, a web developer for The New York Times, who just released Emoji Mosaic. I “created” these emoji versions of classic artworks and it was fun for about 10 seconds. Is it pointless and dumb? Yes. But are you gonna try it out with one of the hundred selfies on your phone right now? That’s what I thought.
I’m always looking for things to listen to while I work, so I thought I’d share a few podcasts that I’ve been enjoying lately. Hopefully there will be a couple you haven’t heard before!
I’ve been an avid listener of shows like Radiolab (is the show less interesting now or is it just me?) and This American Life (my favourite story is from “Tough Room” the peek at joke-writing for The Onion, and my favourite episode was definitely “Retraction” where Ira grills Mike Daisey for lying about his trip to the Apple factory).
I also have to mention that Mark Maron’s WTF episode with Louis C.K. is easily my favourite episode of any podcast. If you haven’t heard it, it’s on youtube, the two talk very openly and honestly about why they aren’t close friends anymore. It is amazing.
Okay, have a listen to these 6 completely unrelated podcasts below covering everything from art, design, voyeurism, skateboarding, Pulp Fiction, and Facebook drama. If you have recommendations for others to check out please leave a comment – I’d love to listen to them.
Daewon Song is a skateboard legend (and was pretty much already a legend when I was a kid) and yet somehow his Instagram is more fresh and creative than pretty much everyone else’s out there. I wouldn’t call this a top 10 because his entire feed is insane but here are 10 clips of the most creative skateboarding being shared to Instagram right now.
Included here are things like a 360 double flip on a board without wheels, bearings only, a late flip with the help of a friend, and some manual wizardry. Whether you are a skateboarder or not this is pure creative inspiration. Enjoy.
