MK12: The History of America

MK12: The History of America

“It’s about how America got born, with the cowboys and the astronauts and the whatnot.”

This looks like something that Ashley Wood would dream up. MK12, the folks who brought you the amazing infographics in ‘Stranger Than Fiction’, are now making a movie about ‘The History of America’, though it looks more like an all out battle in Las Vegas between cowboys and astronauts. I’m talking ax-wielding astronauts and satellites crashing into cowboys… mega weird. But it also looks really amazing at the same time.
Go check out the trailers and stills and make up your own mind about the project.

Noah Butkus

Noah Butkus

It’s really hard to pinpoint Noah Butkus’ work, and what the hell is going on. It reminds me a lot of growing up, like my life between the ages of birth and 18. Coloring and comic books, seventies stoner art. It’s kind of naive like Neckface, sort of calculated like Geoff McFetridge, but has sort of a delicate, intricacy like Moebius.

Hahahahaha… that was so pretentious sounding. This dude makes the raddest/creepiest art, with lots of ghosty looking guys with bloody swords and fucked up dead things. Tight.

Currently residing in Brooklyn, NY, Mike Perry is a creative thunderstorm doing everything and anything! I swear to god I spent an hour checking out everything on his site. So much awesome stuff to look through!
He also has a new book called Hand Job: A Catalog Of Type, which collects all sorts of hand drawn typefaces!

Adidas GPS Run

This sounds like so much fun! Adidas is jumping on the bandwagon with their own version of Nike’s, NIKE+, with the Adidas GPS Run! You basically have the same deal, with a pedometer tracking your distance and running times, but they take it up a notch by tracking your cell phone (which goes in that handy little pouch above) and letting you know exactly where you ran! I guess the best runners will be invited to run in marathon’s and things?!
This is only being released in Japan for now, cuz’ they’re way cooler then us Americans, but hopefully it’ll come out over here soon! I want to use this with the iPhone… how cool would that be?

I also really love the design of the site, which by the way, is totally in Japanese. Can anyone read it and tell me more?

Warm & Scratchy

Warm & Scratchy

I love Cartoon Network so much. It’s probably the one thing I miss most about not having cable. I loved sitting around late at night and watching stupid shit like The Venture Bros., Sealab 2021 and Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
They’ve also been really good about putting out awesome CDs, like DangerDoom. And now they’ve put out this fun little mix CD with lots of rad artists like Broken Social Scene and The Rapture (I’m not that hot on TVotR, lay off). The best part is that it’s TOTALLY FREE! And the cover artwork (above) is way rad as well.
To grab it, head over to the Warm & Scratchy website now!
