We’re compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following and would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and we’ll update this list with the best suggestions.

There are always certain kinds of images you expect on these lists but they did a great job curating some really interesting work. Here are 15 of my favourite images from their list!

The 20 Most Memorable Music Videos of 2015

20musicvideos-2015

Here’s my picks for the 20 best, most creative, funny, beautiful, memorable videos of 2015. I don’t believe any other sites chose the video I picked for Video of the Year. It took me awhile to edit this down from a list I had of 50 or so videos. Hope you find a couple that you overlooked this year, and if you disagree with my list, let me what your top 20 is in the comments. FKA Twigs is not on this list so let the disagreements begin.

Watch all the videos below!

Introducing the world’s smallest folding electric bike that actually fits inside of a backpack! The “Impossible” was just launched on Kickstarter and has already more than tripled its funding goal. It can travel up to 12.4 mph for 45 minutes or at normal speed for up to 15.6 miles. Watch the video, to see someone actually riding the bike, below.

Best of Instagram: Week 18

Here is this week’s Best of Instagram post. Aside from Valerie, these are all photographers with smaller followings. I should also mention that for these features I’m making a conscious effort to feature photography that isn’t all that same heavily filtered, faded, VSCO style that is consuming Instagram.

Guest posters often take over our @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. You can and should leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

A Curated List of Creative Iphone Apps (Actually Worth Downloading)

 
I am constantly looking for interesting creative apps for my iPhone, and kinda stunned how hard it is to find good ones. I haven’t come across a single blog post on the subject that isn’t full of utter garbage (Mashable’s list is a joke).

So I’m going to compile my own list, and it will be 100% my honest opinion. I will refuse any payment/bribe to post about an app that I don’t actually find interesting. The links to the apps are not affiliate links (I don’t think that’s even possible) I will not benefit in any way from the downloads. The apps on this list will be ones that I actually think are worth downloading. In many cases the apps will be free, and if they’re not free I’ll try to get some promo codes from the developer so at least a few people will get ’em free.

If you are a cool developer making a cool app, or you just happen to be a cool person up on cool apps please give me recommendations for other creative apps in the comments below!

My plan is to update this list with more apps as I find them, with your help this could be a great resource. Enjoy.

 

best-creative-apps-03

Name: Glitché

Cost: FREE

Category: Experimental, Visual

Description: Distorts images from your camera or camera roll in the coolest ways. You can even make animated gifs with it (which is how I made the “bad tv” animated Booooooom logo for our Tumblr).

 

best-creative-apps-04

Name: Slit-Scan Camera

Cost: FREE

Category: Experimental, Visual

Description: Allows you to make the trippiest twisting portrait of someone, where they appear to wrap around themselves. I used the app to create this selfie. Lots of fun to mess around with, now we just need a video version!

 

best-creative-apps-05

Name: 360 Panorama

Cost: $0.99

Category: Useful, Visual

Description: I’ve used this app a million times (roughly). You look like a total goof because it takes a minute or two to actually make a good panorama with it, but it’s worth it. This app allows you to shoot a complete 360 degree panorama and then send a link to a friend so they can hold up their phone and look around as if they are standing in the exact spot you took your photo from. You kinda have to see it to know what I’m talking about but it feels like you’re in the future when you use it. I rarely send the link to a friend, I mostly just use it to export a flat image of my pano for Instagram.

 

best-creative-apps-02

Name: Field

Cost: $1.99 (Promo codes at the bottom of this post)

Category: Experimental, Audio, Visual

Description: Turns the images coming through your camera into sounds and abstract images. Definitely not useful, but fun to play around with. Should maybe only be $1.

 

best-creative-apps-06

Name: Keezy

Cost: FREE

Category: Experimental, Audio

Description: A simple sound sampler. It’s really fun to make vocal loops with it, beatbox into it, essentially make terrible music with it.

 

best-creative-apps-01

Name: Goldfish Music Box

Cost: $0.99 (Promo codes at the bottom of this post)

Category: Experimental, Audio

Description: Converts images that come through your camera into sounds. Not an app you’ll use all the time but fun to mess around with when you’re in front of a window.

 

best-creative-apps-07

Name: Adobe Kuler

Cost: FREE

Category: Useful, Visual

Description: Quickly pull colour combinations out of everyday life. Hold your phone up over someone’s outfit and you instantly have the colour swatches.
