Mike Winkelmann AKA Beeple created this 3D animated video for Flying Lotus’s single ‘Kill Your Co-Workers’. You can actually download all of the 3d characters in the video for free at beeple-crap.com/​resources.php. Strange but good (just like Flying Lotus).

Paul Kamuf assembled this interesting experimental video about the life of a text for John Pugh who is also in the band Free Blood. It uses the screen in an unconventional way to further the message and incorporates video and motion to tell the story about what happens when you reach out and tell someone what your thinking with your cell.

Sylvain Tardiveau puts forward a somewhat expected video but that doesn’t make it any less fun or kick ass. It is also right on the money for the music.

I received an email from ‘Kijek/Adamski’ about this weird music video for the single “W pięciu smakach” for the group Brodka that is based on a late night shopping trip to a now disappeared Warsaw shopping district called  ‘Fair Europe’ which offered up cheap clothing from Vietnamese immigrants. Yeah, I think it’s perfectly fair to call this ‘weird’, but it’s also backed by an extremely catchy song that makes me pretty curious about the rest of the album.

Illustrator Michael Gillette updates with some excellent work up at his new website. I particularly like what he is doing in that he is not operating with a singular style but addressing each project with a unique illustrative solution. That is not an easy thing to do and his work is very inspiring. I desperately want to get my hands on a copy of that MGMT poster. If you know where to find one, leave a comment. I am a big fan of both the band and that style of illustration.

Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley) has some choice words for all you gold diggers out there. The guy’s a genius. You just have to admit it. How many people are going to be singing this? Sign ‘o the times I guess when the new pop anthem chorus on everyone’s tongue starts with ‘fuck you’.

I received an email a long time back from photographer Gabriel Jones sharing his photographs taken for the cover of Arcade Fire’s recent album ‘The Suburbs‘. Why I never posted it, I honestly have no idea. My interest in the subject was renewed after purchasing the album the week before. last. I honestly cannot stop listening to it. It’s one of the best albums I have purchased all year and it works as an entire album which is a rare thing to find these days. The songs combine to tell a story, relay an emotion and there is an arc in the storytelling if you stick with the album. It’s their best album yet and I didn’t think they could outdo their first but ‘The Suburbs’ is fantastic in my opinion.

So with that in mind, you can check out Gabriel’s photography for the album and also the artwork produced for the album by Caroline Robert. And when you are done viewing the art that went into the album you should consider purchasing a copy as well. You won’t be disappointed.

It’s time to get crunk and burn this motherf*cker down in this video directed by Daniels for the single ‘Pidgeons’ off of the upcoming self-titled album by The Hundred in the Hands. I have felt like this before but I usually puke fire the morning after. It’s always been my curse, I am a next day puker.

François Wunschel and Fernando Favier produce audio-visual installations, micro-architecture, urban intervention, performances, exhibitions and other strange new forms of art colliding with tech. They labor under the name 1024architecture and focus their efforts on the interaction between body, space, sound, visual, low-tech and hi-tech, art and architecture. Way awesome.
