Allow me to introduce some local talent, Vancouver-based Andy Chung! Andy submitted a skateboard design to Project #4 which led me to his website and the rest, as they say, is history (and by history I mean I snooped around his website, grabbed a few images and wrote this little blurb – I thought it sounded cooler the other way). Andy is currently in his fourth year at Emily Carr, the same art school (now University) I graduated from.
Hooray for October 3rd! Last year I went all out and had a Sushi, Sunglasses & Sake birthday at a big Japanese restaurant with about 20 friends. This year it’s Mexican – I’ll let you know how it goes. (I’m celebrating tonight so if the site hasn’t been updated on Monday assume it went well.)
I am taking the rest of the day off and dedicating this PBF comic to myself:
Have a great weekend everyone!
As you know (or maybe you don’t – actually, you not knowing is most likely the case) I am always looking for funny comics online. My friend Rob just sent over this one from Dinosaur Comics and I laughed pretty hard.
See a much larger version of this comic here. If that doesn’t make you laugh, hit “more” I guarantee you will laugh.
Alright boys and girls Project #4 is here – Design a skateboard for Booooooom! The good folks over at Popdeck made this one possible, so a big thank you to them. This is your chance to design a skateboard and have it sent to you! One month from now I will select the three most creative submissions and then we’ll have a vote. The winning submission will be made available on Popdeck, for the extremely low price of $35, and the winner will receive their own skateboard via mail – free of charge! Accepting submissions until October 25th.
The design can have as much or as little to do with Booooooom as you want but it must be original work! Just be creative!
Hit “more” for the link to the skateboard template files and the rest of the instructions.
Diplo remixed Reckoner, you can too. After the smashing success of all the fan remixes of Nude, Radiohead has made all the instrumental elements of Reckoner available for download. To kick things off Radiohead got Diplo (genius behind M.I.A’s album, Arular) to officially remix the track.
If you’ve been to Radiohead Remix then you already know the drill – make a remix, upload, vote. Listen to Diplo’s handiwork here: Reckoner (DIPLO remix)
