Terminally Chill by Neon Indian
Neon Indian is exactly what I want summer 2K9 to sound like. Last summer it was Cut Copy, and this summer it’s definitely going to be the trippy, laid back sounds of Alan Palamo. His label says the new album, Psyhic Chasms, was inspired by “drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances”, which sounds like a gem to me. The album doesn’t come out until October 13th though, so be sure to get his first EP and download two new songs from his label.

About Your Wallpaper:
I read an article recently about 21st century post modern architecture and how cities are starting to look like theme parks. I like that metaphor and worked with it to make a disjointed, surreal looking landscape to use as a wallpaper.
I love me a good vampire movie (see: Let The Right One In) and this new one called Daybreakers may just be enough to wash the bad Twilight taste out of everyone’s mouths. The film is set place in 2019, and a plague has turned most of the world into vampires. But the world is starting to run out of human blood, and soon the vampires will start turning into these beastly, psychotic versions of themselves. Enter Ethan Hawke who is a researcher looking to save the human race, and in turn, save the vampire race.
The whole thing is obviously a bit cheesy, but the directing looks sharp and the effects look extremely believable. This is a movie that could be totally cheeseball, but from the looks of it I have a lot of hope that it’ll be pretty good. Plus Willem Dafoe is in, so that’s rad.
It’s crazy to think about, but I posted about little miss Anekka Tran over TWO YEARS ago! Since then she’s continued to create the cutest and most brilliant little pieces of art. The two pieces above illustrate exactly what I wish would happen when I visit a Japanese restaurant. Maybe if I actually went to Japan then this could happen, all Miyazaki-style? I can only dream.
Take a peek at her Flickr, her blog and her shop as well.
I came across the work of Museum Studio yesterday, a Stockholm based studio that’s done work for heavies like Nike, Wood Wood and Sixpack. Back in 2005/2006 they did some really great window graphics for a hair salon called Kaiser Schnitt.There are lots of odd bits and bobs that would be really cool to see all over the windows. They also came up with some really funny hairdos on animals, kind of like the fox and owl you see above. Those are under the cut, so check those out as well.
