Spring Stripes and Greys

I noticed a bit of a trend lately with the clothes I’ve been buying, a lot of stripes and a lot of greys. I’d say that most of my button up shirts are pretty brightly colored, but as of lately I’ve been preparing for spring/summer to descend and this is the palette that’s begun to appear. Here’s a list of where you can grab these.

‘Speed of Light’ by United Visual Artists

When it comes to art installations featuring light displays there are few people more creative then the force known as UVA, aka United Visual Artists. Their already huge body of brilliant work has now been expanded with this new project sponsored by Virgin Media called Speed of Light.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of broadband in UK Virgin tasked UVA with creating an installation in a run down old house that would embody the idea of the speed of the internet. So the folks at UVA turned to lasers, a LOT of lasers, to transform the space along with some amazing sound design that would allow visitors to interact every every step of the way.

Just watching the videos above you can see how absolutely detailed they got, like asking people questions with the lasers and then using their vocals later in the space and visualizing their voice patterns in laser form… you still following me? Watch the videos above and prepare to get your mind blown.

‘Very Mary-Kate’

While browsing over on Vimeo earlier in the week I came across this amazing video series called Very Mary-Kate which was created by Elaine Carrol. The series follows the (fake) life of Mary-Kate Olsen who decides to move out of her apartment with her sister and strike out on her own.

The series so far is on it’s 19th episode as of this afternoon but so far I’ve found myself laughing pretty damn hard at all of them. I’ve posted my two favorite above, one where she goes on a blind date with Zac Effron and the second she has a bad dream so she visits Body Guard (her body guard) and talks to an evil dragon.

The first few episodes are definitely early on in her character development but she’s now absolutely nailing this weird character. My favorite part is how she holds her face and the slightly odd accent she carries. Anyhow I’d suggest you go watch all the episodes in order if you enjoy the two above.

Put This On: Episode 2 – Shoes

I know a lot of you guys enjoy fashion oriented posts so I thought this video by Put This On could be really informative. Self-described as “A web series about dressing like a grownup” creators Jesse Thorn & Adam Lisagor take you through the basics of dressing right, like this episode which is all about mens shoes.

These guys definitely know their stuff, taking you to shop here in Hollywood called Willie’s, which has been making custom shoes for the past 50 years. They also give you tips on how to properly shine your shoes, a better way to tie them as well as good brands to buy if you’re in the market for a nice, shiny pair of shoes.

‘Red Pleather’ by Pikelet

Taken from Stem, the debut LP from Melbourne-based musician Pikelet, “Red Pleather” portrays an aquatic wonderland where Evelyn Morris and her band appear to be suspended and floating in the water along with jellyfish and other sea creatures. Directed by Aleks Bryant of Aleks and the Ramps, the video evokes a hallucinatory and dreamy atmosphere that is matched by the fluid and cascading tones of the music.

For some reason I feel like this is almost a companion video to Christopher Smith’s “Gently, Gently”, which Bobby previously posted, in so far as they both present imaginary worlds that are captured in glass structures. It also makes me wish that gigs did actually take place in aquariums √† la Flight of the Conchords.
