I didn’t actually even see the VMA performance in question (people my age lose the ability to see MTV), but I sure saw the flurry of activity that came after it. It looked more to me like Miley Cyrus had some sort of sea slug trying to escape her mouth than anything else. I suppose […]
The most anticipated second half of Breaking Bad’s last season started airing last week and every fan of the show is breathing heavily as the story breaks even more badly. This amusing website, which is cleverly called Betting Bad, intensifies the show’s madness. The interactive website allows users to predict the end, earn points, and […]
We are not sure who’s behind Microwhat, a tumblr blog that faithfully snaps before and after pictures of stuff tossed into a microwave oven. There are sour gummy worms, Jesus on a cross, and a polaroid. The results are quite intriguing.
Kunstradio is a sound art radio station from Zurich in Switzerland, home of the Dada movement. I worked with this station in 1999, where I streamed a sound art piece, Frozen Teardrop in Space, as part of the Ars Electronica festival from Linz Austria. I collaborated with Colin Fallows at Ars Electronica and participated in the 24 hours live streaming web mix broadcast on Kunstradio. The radio station broadcasts sound works from all over the world 24 hours a day. You never have to listen to Bieber again!
As a freelance writer in Los Angeles, one of the only benefits I have is the ability to keep all the rights to my work. And since I’m a big proponent of ‘evergreen’ material, I decided to create PopCurious in order to do my part to recycle. But since I launched in October 2011, the […]
If what goes on in museums can be curated, babes who go to the museum might as well be curated, too. Thanks to Xavier Aaronson, who founded the Babes At the Museum blog, that’s exactly what happens.
As an Asian, I can vouch that the phenomenon of Asians Taking Pictures of Food is not only well and alive, but that Asians take these pictures very seriously. Just check out the expressions.
Somewhere not that deep inside of me, there’s a fifteen year old girl who loves Blink 182, Airwalk treads and a guy called Bernard who hung out with his cargos around the plump rounds of his backside at the half-pipe around the corner from the footy field. In fact, that girl is now sitting in front of her Macbook with huge puppy eyes and swooning all the way back to 1997 with a new blog called The Skartorialist: The Sartorialist equivalent of skater boys from around the globe. The creation of London-based commercial and editorial photographer, Sam Ashley, it should also be known as ‘Painfully cute and perve-worthy lads around the world holding decks’.
Is this a shoe? Is it wearable? It doesn’t matter. If something has a sly sense of humor then I love it already. Go ahead, pick a color, a designer or a material, and see what comes up. I couldn’t help myself and went to the ‘experimental’ section first. This is a huge virtual collection. Well worth exploring.
Tumblr is filled with oddities that one can’t avoid stumbling upon. Brad Pitt Eating Things is a site dedicated to posts featuring Brad Pitt eating, from television shows to movie scenes. It really just makes you realize that he likes to eat. A lot. Especially on camera.
This year is the 40th anniversary of Pong. But have you played an educational version? A turn-based version? Here’s an experimental art project by Pippin Barr which features 36 variations on the classic game: some are funny, some are clever, and some are (surprise!) actually fun to play.
I love stories with plot twists, but I feel like I always see the same handful of cliches: it was all a dream, they were both one person with a split personality, something to do with a ghost, etc. There are infinite endings out there that haven’t been used yet, so I’ve been writing and illustrating ideas on Twitter and tumblr: beginnings and middles not included.
Tumblr somehow lends itself quite well to the most bizarre stuff, and its users have been great at feeding whatever fathomable obsessions they have through the microblogging platform. Fuck Yeah Jesus Men is one of these obsessions. People with the hots for blokes who look like Jesus, we’re looking at you.
Appropriately, I NEED A GUIDE is a well-compiled guide to art, photography, architecture and contemporary culture. The artists they introduce are fantastic, and their website is very simple to navigate.
