Erik Kraft Reader Find

By Erik Kraft in Cool Websites on Tuesday 1 October 2013

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 […]

Will Sergeant from Echo and The Bunnyman Reader Find

By Will Sergeant from Echo and The Bunnyman in New Trends on Wednesday 6 June 2012

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!

Pop Curious: unearthing the curious side of pop culture

Tanja M. Laden Contributor

By Tanja M. Laden in Cool Websites on Wednesday 6 June 2012

The Skartorialist: a skater blog devoted to skater boys

Rani Nugraha Reader Find

By Rani Nugraha in Cool Websites on Friday 25 May 2012

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’.

The Virtual Shoe Museum

Brigitte Martin Reader Find

By Brigitte Martin in Cool Websites on Thursday 24 May 2012

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.

Illustrated plot twists on Tumblr and Twitter

Dan Markowitz Reader Find

By Dan Markowitz in Cool Websites on Monday 21 May 2012

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.

Fuck Yeah Jesus Men Tumblr

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Saturday 19 May 2012

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.
