Living in Los Angeles, even without a car, they’re still a part of my daily life. While on the bus I have to wait behind them, while walking on the street I have to be careful not to get hit by them. So of course it’s extremely interesting for me to see a video like the one above, featuring a Los Angeles without cars.
The video was inspired by Matt Logue’s Empty Los Angeles series of photo but Ross Ching decided to take that idea one step further. Using time-lapse of some sort Ross has created lots of small video montages of some rather iconic areas around Los Angeles. It was actually a lot of fun trying to spot the places around my neighborhood, and even weirder to see them completely devoid of cars and people.
I’m not exactly sure what this video is selling, but I want to roll around in it. Lisa Frank is not the designer, but I think the designers should consider her influence while eating glittery unicorn stickers. So watch this video and smile, the week is almost over.
Back in the days when I was attending high school, there was a distinct divide in the student cohort: you either listened to Brit pop or grunge music and never the twain shall meet. I was Brit pop all the way and still have the Oasis, Blur and Suede albums to prove it. Plus, I’m pretty sure that there’s an Elastica cassette hidden somewhere too.
So it was with a mixture of delight and amusement that I watched this video from Nylon TV with Liam Gallagher, as he discusses his particular take on fashion with his label Pretty Green. I was left wondering: Is Liam Gallagher a style icon and should he be influencing the way modern men dress? I quite like the black military coat that he models in the middle of the video, but I think I will leave the final answers to those questions open to the male readership.
Just remember: “If the shoes are right I think everything else falls into place, you know what I mean?”
I’ve always been a fan of sea creatures. Growing up I wanted to work with dolphins and whales and the such, I guess I figured I would end up being best friends with them… Anyhow, I came across these amazing videos by MORPHOLOGIC, A Miami based creative studio that’s run by marine biologist Colin Foord and musician Jared McKay. Together they’re creating all kinds of rad stuff but the videos above are by far my favorite.
Combining their two passions these videos feature local sea critters from the Atlantic ocean, then mixed together with some of McKay’s music, creating this beautiful little vignettes. As you can see I posted four but I wanted to post os many more! To see more of their videos click here.
A couple months ago the folks at Incase released this video of Evan Hecox working, shedding a little light on his process. It was made because of the collaboration Evan did with Incase and Arkitip on MacBook sleeves and iPhone cases. As I’ve said many times before it’s always so interesting to me to see an artists process, especially one that I’m such a huge fan of. I always knew that he used photos for reference, but it was really interesting to see that he blos up his photos and then almost traces over them. There’s something really precise and mechanical about it that I never realized. I kind of wish they would have shown the whole process but I’m guessing the video would have been three times as long. Nonetheless, it’s a nice peek.
