So we may not have the real deal around anymore to shimmy and shake on stage like no-one else, but we do have a hologram version of the King of Pop. And it’s NEARLY as good as the real thing. At last night’s Billboard Music Awards, and five years after his death, the visual-effects studio Digital Domain projected a life-size version of Michael Jackson into the living rooms of millions around the world.

Let’s face it, these stunning porcelain figurines have cooler tattoos than you do

Jessica Harrison, you’ve done it again. Not content with distorting the inherent beauty of her Victorian-era stylised work via subtle destruction of her figurines, Harrison has now created an epic series of porcelain figurines sporting sailor tattoos. Wild. The Scottish artist will be showing this work at Paris’s Galerie L.J. in a solo show titled […]

Sometimes you see something that makes you question the natural order of the world, and your somewhat insignificant place in it. This remarkable security video footage uploaded by YouTuber Roger Triantafilo shows his young son being set upon by a vicious angry dog, who was in turn set upon by an even angrier, vicious cat.

The most famous music video of the past decade just had its music stripped away, and it’s still awesome!

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Tuesday 13 May 2014

Everyone knows the routine by now – some of us better than others. But seeing Ok Go perform this viral video monster (20 million views and counting) without the music is way more entertaining than the original ever was. Don’t believe us? Feast your eyes on this action and prepare yourself for more grunts and groans than, really, you ever wanted to hear.

Be warned: this video of a bunny eating raspberries will stick in your mind for weeks

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Monday 12 May 2014

Stop the clock: this video of a bunny furiously eating a raspberry officially beats out the baby shark and the cat with ducklings as THE cutest thing we’ve seen all year. Yes, we want one. Yes, we will feed it all the raspberries it can eat. Yes, that ‘lipstick’ looks divine. Sigh. Now won’t someone please rescue us from watching it all over again.

Ok, so this is the heartwarming story of the year. Irish couple Ronan and Emma Lally couldn’t find their pet ducklings one day and went into a panic fearing that they had become, erm, breakfast for their beloved cat, Della. But it turned out that poor Della had been wrongly accused.

This ‘Pantone Colour’ book was created 271 years before ‘Pantone’ was even a word

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 7 May 2014

Created in 1692, this book by unheralded artist A. Boogert featured beautiful watercolours and theories around how best to mix them. As our friends at This Is Colossal have noted, the 800 page book, entitled Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau, ‘was probably the most comprehensive guide to paint and colour of […]

This extraordinary photo shows a random splash of seawater, magnified 25 times

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Thursday 1 May 2014

It would be fair to say that we have a thing for magnified photos on Lost At E Minor. And can you blame us? Who knew that a single grain of sand could look so vibrant under an intense lens, or that dust could harbour so many colourful elements? This incredible photo shows what you […]

Ever wondered what a balloon looks like when it pops in super slow motion?

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Wednesday 30 April 2014

This is so compelling we’ve spent three-quarters of the day watching it over, and over, and over again. That’s right, who would’ve thought that the simple act of blowing up a balloon with too much, erm, hot air, could lead to such visually powerful imagery. But it did, and here’s the proof. Fun, huh? [Watch […]

NOW+ 4EVA: majestic pop from Architecture in Helsinki

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Monday 31 March 2014

I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since Aussie music legends (and I don’t use that term lightly), Architecture in Helsinki, first graced the stages of inner-city Melbourne and Sydney. I was playing in bands myself back then, keeping one eye on my ever-growing Marshall stack and the other on the local band scene. And while I’ve long since moved behind the keypad and left my guitar to gather dust, these guys keep going. And going. And going. Phew!

The Ovolo Hotel, Melbourne

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Cool Travel on Thursday 12 December 2013

You really couldn’t get a better location to explore Melbourne from than Little Bourke street. Unlike many big cities, the Melbourne CBD is actually a fun, bustling environment with plenty of bars, restaurants and boutique stores to keep you – and your wallet – busy. The Ovolo, a Mr and Mrs Smith Hotel, is right in the heart of it all, within easy walking distance to the trams (Melbourne’s gateway to everything cool) and just a stone’s throw (literally) from the constant energy of Chinatown.

Scenes from the Lost At E Minor Sydney party

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Monday 2 December 2013

We threw a Lost At E Minor party in the old Chocolate Factory in Haymarket, Sydney, on October 10 for no other reason than it just felt like the right time to do it. The star of the party was local artist James Jirat Patradoon, who decorated the interior of the venue with his brilliant […]

The building is 21 stories high, with 145 rooms, most of which have floor to ceiling windows and […]
