Happy Birthday Double Fine!!
Today (or was it yesterday?) the home of Tim Schafer and the developer of one of my favourite ever games turns 10! Scott C drew this to celebrate. He’s very good at drawing things and I’d like to buy his book but I’m running out of room (and money) for impulsively purchased books. Anyway, congrats Double Fine! Keep doing great stuff!
NP: Prefuse 73 - Everything She Touched Turned...
Okay, this post is a little redundant because there are already 14 months of (better written) reviews out there but this album got totally forgotten about. It’s a mosaic of spliced together snippets with most of the tracks being about a minute long and quite fractured themselves; you get 20 seconds of noise followed by 20 seconds of blissed out sounds. To me (and ADD sufferers) this is...
Introducing: Little Loud →
Words: Gareth O’Malley If you’re a producer, there is no better way to make your presence felt than by getting some remixes picked up. Even better if your first few remixes include some heavy hitters. Brighton’s Will Phillips, working under the moniker of Little Loud would know all… Go listen! Now!
Lie-in + this track from Mount Kimbie’s (very good) new album.
I’m not a big fan of bikes but this one exudes shiny cool. And it reminds me of this: “That,” he said, “that … is really bad for the eyes …” Ford looked. He too stood astonished. It was a ship of classic, simple design, like a flattened salmon, twenty yards long, very clean, very sleek. There was just one remarkable thing about it. “It’s...
Making commercials is the dustbin of film-making. It sucks you dry.– ….but it pays the bills! And the clip in question is better than your average ad. Not all of them, though. [Chris Cunningham, the Guardian]
It's Trippy Tuesday
New and space-y video for a track from Cosmogramma.
This is your brain on anime
There are trailers for Inception all over TV right now, and it looks pretty nifty. One thing they have reminded me of (particularly that hallway scene!) is Paprika, a mind-bending anime film from a few years ago. The intro is posted above, but really, you should buy the DVD and watch it on a big screen. The brightly coloured insanity of the parade scenes is worth the price alone, and that...
The current national priorities should be as follows: reduce carbon emissions...– The Chicago Reader review of The Last Airbender. I was actually vaguely interested in seeing this til it got rip to shreds by every reviewer.
Pick a speed
45rpm: or a more relaxed 33rpm: Either way, Boards of Canada are still the best.
Now Playing - Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent
It’s great when you forget about something you bought something online and then it turns up like a late birthday present. I totally forgot I’d pre-ordered this game until it turned up in my inbox this morning. I’d purchased it on the strength of the trailer; the drawings were homemade & lovely, the sense of humour looked like my kind of thing and I like puzzles. The game...
