How Hollywood Could Kill Movie Piracy →
Put this way, it sounds so simple. And actually, it should be this simple. Unfortunately, this discounts the fact that Hollywood is run by people with their heads up their asses. Like this guy. It’s a fucked up nightmare of politics and greed. It’s amazing that anything good comes out of the system at all — it’s a testament to the true creative talent behind the films...
Still Life →
Still Life is an interactive gallery piece that takes traditional still life painting into the fourth dimension with a motion-sensitive frame on a rotating mount. Oh. So that’s what New Media is!

Cassette: A Documentary →
To answer the question of “why a sudden resurgence in the popularity of cassettes” you need only one word. Hipsters.
Synthetic Corp’s fabulous Hipstamatic is a retro camera app for iOS. But its 18 films and 20 lenses give many possible combinations. Use the options here to narrow down the choices from all 360 possibilities and learn about the lenses and films. To get started, click some buttons to the right. Im a huge fan of Hipstamatic but sometimes trying to figure out which combination to use in order to...

A fantastic collection of fun, creative, and handwritten typefaces. Best of all? They’re all free.
Stunning Black and White photo Colourization →
While generally I consider the colourization of Black and White material to be utter sacrilege, if it always looked this good I don’t think I’d mind so much.

…low chances of injury as the keypad is not mechanical Oh thank God! I can’t count the number of times I’ve been injured from my mechanical keyboard. Those things are so sharp!
MPAA Responds to Anonymous Takedown →
Unfortunately, some groups believe that speech or ideas that they disagree with should be silenced. This could not be more wrong. No matter the point of view, everyone has a right to be heard. The motion picture and television industry has always been a strong supporter of free speech. We strongly condemn any attempts to silence any groups or individuals. The Internet is home to creativity,...
The First Has Fallen... →
MegaUpload, one of the largest file-sharing sites on the Internet, has been shut down by federal prosecutors in Virginia. The site’s founder Kim Dotcom and three others were arrested by the police in New Zealand at the request of US authorities. MegaVideo, the streaming site belonging to same company, and a total of 18 domains connected to the Mega company were seized and datacenters in three...
Years [vvvv, Arduino] →
Created by Bartholomäus Traubeck, Years is a record player that translates wood’s year rings into sound. Using a ps eye camera, the grain on the slices of wood is read and converted into music. This will blow your mind. Beautiful design. Beautiful music. All from wood slices? Nature is incredible.
Murdoch's Pro-SOPA/Anti-Google Rant →
“So Obama has thrown in his lot with Silicon Valley paymasters who threaten all software creators with piracy, plain thievery,” Murdoch tweeted yesterday. He went on to attack Google for its anti-SOPA stance, calling the company a “piracy leader.” This coming from the man who’s company illegally hacked celebrity/politicians cell phones. (Yes, I realize I’m a few days behind on...
Defend our freedom to share (or why SOPA is a bad... →
Longer than most of your SOPA/PIPA explanation videos but goes full depth into it and covers the full history of these laws. Fascinating stuff.
Officially back on track as of today. Doc says all clear. Ends an 8-month period of extreme patience and a real head trip… Back to it… See you soon. Can’t wait to hear the new album!
Blur Talks: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”... →
The opening title sequence for Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is right up there with SE7EN for stunning opening titles. It was by far one of my favourite parts of the entire film. Having said that, I don’t quite understand why they used all the imagery that they did (clearly some was referencing the sequels but that seems odd to do in a film about solely the...
Crate Dig 2012
This past weekend I watched a great documentary about the 90’s hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest called “Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest” (which you should definitely watch). One of the most interesting parts of the film involved tribe member Q-Tip describing how he discovered some of the beats, loops, breakdowns, and hooks he used on the early...

What’s this? A 70 minute film set entirely to Girl Talk’s latest album? Yes please!!
The Author of SOPA Is a Copyright Violator →
“I do not see anywhere on the screen capture that you have provided that the image was attributed to the source (me). So my conclusion would be that Lamar Smith’s organization did improperly use my image. So according to the SOPA bill, should it pass, maybe I could petition the court to take action against www.texansforlamarsmith.com.” And there could be more!
Why He Hates Android →
MG Siegler on why he (and most other people who actually know what they’re talking about/Apple fan-boys) hates Android I hear you all screaming, “What’s there to hate! Android is open!!” There’s no denying that there are upsides to open — a lot of them. But in the case of Android, “open” has been hijacked and wildly contorted so as to mask the shady side of what’s really...
Pre-Order Bond 50 on Blu-ray →
It’s officially ready for Pre-Order. $200 (US). I better start saving now. I mean, sure, I have all the best ones on Blu-ray already. And half of them are damn near unwatchable. But what can I say? I’m a completist.

So, This Happened... →
Turns out this is what an e-mail inbox looks like when I walk away for a week. Say what? Inbox Zero? No, not familiar. The worst part? There were only 4 emails that were actually pertinent and I cared about. Four. Meaning there was 190 junk emails. I think it’s time I start doing some unsubscribing/blocking. That or invest in some serious Merlin Mann time. And next time I’ll be...
