The latest surprise package to land on my doorstep, Plazm Magazine. This thing is heaaaavy – I’m bicep curling it right now. It’s pretty new too, it’s only been around since 1991!!! Yeah, that kinda speaks for itself. The Portland-based magazine has had contributions from roughly a billion artists and musicians (proof)! Thanks Sarah, you’re awesome!
At the risk of having you never come back to this site, I have compiled a list of 17 other sites to feed your creative appetite. Dozens more could have been added to this list (perhaps there will be a sequel to it). Most of the sites included here do not get the credit they deserve, and even the popular ones deserve even more attention. In no particular order:
1. Triangle Triangle – A fantastic photoblog (my favourite on the entire internet). Jake’s tastes are really similar to mine.
This is where you scream ‘why didn’t I think of this???’ and jump off a bridge! Israeli musician Kutiman has crafted an album entirely from Youtube clips, and it is nothing short of brilliant. Dj Shadow, Mike Realm and Pb Wolf look out. Thanks to Dutch for the heads up!

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).
There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!
