Love these drawings by Brooklyn-based artist James Ulmer. He’s a personal favourite of mine because of the beautifully naive way he draws. I want to unlock my brain like this. More below.

Book Giveaway: Jennilee Marigomen “Window Seat”

jennileemarigomen01

I’m excited for my friend, photographer Jennilee Marigomen, who is set to release her first book entitled “Window Seat” on Friday, September 26th at Make. The delicate images in the book describe a trip to Mexico in a way that only she could. Her work is understated, and I find the quiet beauty she draws out of each little moment intensely personal.

She has kindly offered to give away two signed copies of “Window Seat” to Booooooom readers. What I propose is that you all hop over to her Instagram @jennileem, have a look around, and then come back here and leave a comment about an image from her feed that really speaks to you.

I’ll let her pick a couple winners on the September 25th, the day before her book is released. Have a look at more images of her book below, and remember to leave a comment for a chance to snag a copy.

High School Band Performs Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name”

killinginthename

The coolest high school band teacher award goes to this guy, for teaching his class Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name”.

*EDIT Chris over at Colossal found a second video which shows the band is actually George Mason University Green Machine. I’ve also replaced the original video with another one which properly credits them. I guess this makes slightly more sense since high school parents would not be very stoked on the last verse of the song – still cool though.

Watch both videos below.

Kutiman Samples Amateur Youtube Musicians to Create “Give It Up”

kutiman-giveitup

Ophir Kutiel aka Kutiman, is the Youtube generation’s DJ Shadow. He scours Youtube for obscure musical treasures; kids playing piano, guitar tutorials, anything he can use to make a song. Somehow he is able to weave the unrelated clips into something completely new. I’ve blogged about him numerous times but it all started with his project Thru You.

5 years later, Kutiman is set to release his follow up, Thru You Too, and his first single “Give It Up” is a masterpiece. Watch the video below!

Incredible timeslice photography by Los Angeles-based photographer Dan Marker-Moore. Timeslices are collages of photographs taken from the same location.

Some of the timeslices represent hours, others minutes. Both of the images above capture the moon rising over LA on two separate occasions. See more of Dan’s beautiful work below!
