On Repeat; Lorn - Greatest Silence
A bit of a non-video but an addictive track from Lorn, signed to Brainfeeder. Good use of an organ or whatever it is.
The best thing I have seen all day
…is this series of paintings. They’re by an artist called El Mac, go to his site for plenty more amazing stuff. [via theworldsbestever]
These people didn't get it →
Nevermind! I really liked Scott Pilgrim, and loved certain parts of it. Tons of stylish touches (as you’d expect from Edgar Wright) and all out fun will maybe make it the first heavily-videogame-influenced film that will end up on ‘best of the year’ lists. Just not on those guys’ lists obviously.
Jasper James takes cool photos
There's a new Sylvain Chomet film!
The only places that seem to be showing it are in Scotland and London. This seems like a darn good excuse to go to London next weekend.
Threadless sales are nice
They supply half my clothes! The top half. I just bought a few things in one of the usual $10 sales but what I really want is one of these Noby Noby Boy or Katamari shirts. Next payday…
Tech demo of the day
God games aren’t usually something that I can be arsed with but this one just looks so fluid and fantastic. It has been added to the list of things to be excited about. [via kotaku]
Edgar Wright + Super 8
I just found this nice little short Edgar Wright & friends (Nick Frost!) made for Straight 8, complete with trademark swooshes and jaunty music. I’d never heard of this series before but there’s some really good stuff to watch in easily consumable chunks. If you’re after something stranger then there’s Julia Davis (I found it while looking for Nighty Night clips)...
Something that doesn't exist yet turns 50
It’s the Space Elevator! A very cool idea as I’d like to go to space please. Gizmodo have a little background on it from the creator of the concept, Yuri Artsutanov.
On Repeat; Madlib/Talib Kwelli - Funny Money
It gets stuck in your head very easily, in a good way.

On Repeat; In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country
Great song, suitably trippy video. The stills from it are nice too. [BOARDS OF CANADA - IN A BEAUTIFUL PLACE OUT IN THE COUNTRY from Neil Krug]
Nick went to Paris
And took some photos. There’s more here.
Cool Ceiling of the Week
This makes me wish 1) I could draw and 2) I had a bigger ceiling. [ekosystem.org]
Feral nudey girl
Miru Kim has a series of photos called Naked City Spleen and it makes for some pretty cool photos. [via theworldsbestever]
