Spike Jonze has done it again! Breathing new life into awards shows by directing a live music video for Arcade Fire and a million other things at the recent YouTube Music Awards (that nobody watched). The slow reveal of the award show itself is perfect. Loved Greta Gerwig in Frances Ha, and she does a great job here.
Did any of you watch the award show? What did you think? It was really rocky at times but it was also kind of brilliant. From the Tyler the Creator performance to the Lena Dunham short, there was an energy to it all that Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows just don’t have. If you missed it you can watch the whole show here.
Watch “Afterlife” below! Props to the camera operator!
You don’t have to be Hawaiian to appreciate these incredible hand cut photos by Jared Yamanuha, but if you’ve ever experienced the island life these works will really resonate with you. You’ll recognize brands like Hawaiian Sun, and places like Matsumotos, Leonard’s, and Longs. Ahh, I need to go back!
Lots more images below!
It’s been incredible to see my friend Benji’s little brand Poler grow into a giant over the last few years. I get so many ideas for things I wanna do with Booooooom just from watching what he’s doing.
Benji and company have just announced a capsule collection with NikeSB (you can see here) and made a fun video featuring Alex Olson adventuring his way from New York City to Iceland’s backcountry.
Watch the video below (love the ending).
Heads up Vancouver, James Blake is rolling through town on the 19th, playing Vogue Theatre with Nosaj Thing! I’ve also heard that James Blake’s dj collective 1-800-Dinosaur will be back here again in April. Anyways, this show is going to be epic and I have a pair of tickets to give away!
If you wanna go to the show tell me your favourite song by James Blake or Nosaj Thing in the comments below. If you have a story or specific memory tied to the song I wanna hear it!
