Franz Ferdinand / Ulysses

This video makes this song 10,000 times better. Franz Ferdinand’s latest single Ulysses, directed by thirtytwo (pulse films). Bit of a slow starter, love the editing in the second half.

Lernert Engelberts & Sander Plug

Lernert Engelberts and Sander Plug wanted to learn a new instrument, so naturally they did what anyone else would do… they built an 18th century-style duo glass harp and learned to play it in 8 weeks. What song did they learn? No Limit by 2 Unlimited, of course!

My friend Ryan and I bought a peephole and a couple pieces of pvc, stuck them together with a hot glue gun, and it was done. Literally 20 minutes. I felt like Steven Seagal when he made that silencer with a 2L pop bottle in Under Siege.

Take a peek at the fishy footage and some more photos below!
