You can now fly on Hello Kitty Airlines! Taiwan-based EVA Air has launched three jets: The Apple Jet, The Magic Jet, and The Global Jet. I love how ridiculous this is!
There is a scene in Efterklang’s film “An Island” where the band performs with local people from a small town and although it is obvious that most of them are not musicians they are all playing instruments alongside the band. It is a beautiful scene (I admit I shed a tear the first time I watched it), and I was so inspired by it I began brainstorming ways that I could create a similar experience with bands here in Vancouver. I didn’t take the idea any further than my notepad.
Last week I discovered that some fellow Vancouverites have started doing this very thing! They call it Playground. The premise is simple: One band, one audience, one goal. Create a song together, and then record it in less than an hour.
Watch a video of the most recent Playground event below!
It’s been hard to keep this a secret, but it is a secret no more! I have joined forces with my friends at Poketo to release a collection of wallets designed by four Canadian artists!
Over the next couple weeks I will be posting an interview with each artist to give you some more insight into their work and will end each interview by giving away one of our wallets!
If you’d like to purchase a wallet (or four) jump over here.
Take a closer look at the wallets below!
