Wired has compiled a great list of 10 environmentally friendly, some downright ludicrous, concept cars. You can be sure that none of these will be headed to your local dealership, but it’s really cool to see stuff like this. When I worked for Electronic Arts I worked in the concept art department and it was kinda sad knowing that 99% of what was created there wouldn’t really be seen by anyone outside of the building.
Anyone else here a fan of the Prototypes? I’ve had their song “Je ne te connais pas” on repeat quite a bit this year, as well as “I cay you can’t stop” by a band called Nelson. Both bands are from Paris and both videos incorporate fragmenting of the screen in one form or another. First up is the Prototypes’ video directed by Oliver “Twist” Gondry (Michel’s brother).
I remember lying on my stomach for hours next to a huge Styrofoam cooler (once use for packing salmon – yes it was HUGE) filled with Lego. When I’d finally get up to eat dinner I’d have the carpet texture tattooed on both my elbows. To call me a fan of Lego during those years would be the understatement of the 21st century. So you can imagine my reaction when I saw these…
First of all, I just want to say thank you to all you regular readers of the site, you’ve really made this site something I look forward to updating everyday. Moving forward, I’m going to devote even more time to the site because, well, this baby is still growing at an alarming rate. 170,000 views in the past two months is no joke! Big thanks to all the sponsors/advertisers for helping offset my site costs.
In honor of the huge increase of spam in the comments section (none of which actually shows up thanks to the wonderful akismet plugin) and the appearance of spam text messages on my freakin cell phone (how?) I am heading to the spam capital of the world (the other kind!). If anyone needs me I’ll be getting tanned and jacked in Maui for the week.
I’ve pre-written a few posts, so there will continue to be new content posted while I’m away. As soon as I return I’ll post up the Project #3 gallery (had some great submissions already)! Oh, and keep your eyes peeled, I’ve got a bunch of fun stuff planned for the upcoming months.
You may recall I posted about Oscar & Ewan and their fantastic lasertype awhile back – well, Ewan just hit me up with a look at their latest work, the cover for the new Roots Manuva album, “Slime and Reason”. It is stunning.
I asked about the process and Ewan explained they actually had Roots Manuva 3D scanned (from every 45 degree angle) and then manipulated the 3D image to set the bowl in. Then they took their prototype to a sculptor and had a cast made. Finally they created some slime out of hand soap, filled the bowl, and Pelle Crépin snapped some photos. Boom, done.
If you aren’t familiar with Roots Manuva, it’s time you got familar! Here’s one of my favourite tracks off an older album:
Apparently we killed the hotlink file – (here’s the Zshare link!)
