Enjoy today’s Google doodle & have a fun /safe Hallllooooweeeeennnnn! 😀
Among its fantastic repertoire of animated films UP (Disney / Pixar film 2009) is one of my favs! Plus as some of you might know I also LOVE music! So you can imagine when I came across this awesome ‘Up music video’ 😀 …. well all I have to say is watch this before Disney yanks it out of cyber space!
It’s a composition of chords, bass notes, and vocal samples from the Disney/Pixar film Up, and it’s wonderful.
Seriously if you have a few minutes to spare or just want to have some ‘clean’ internet fun :)….then Seaquence is an uber fun interactive site where you can create and see your music in action! It is an experiment in musical composition, adopting a biological metaphor. Compositions can be saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made.
Came across some really nice graphic design work from US based graphic artist / illustrator (& wanna-be astronaut) Christopher David Ryan 🙂
Truly ‘global’! Not only the content but also the creation of this amazing project. Top animators from Avatar and Tron, the director of MIT’s Media Lab have partnered with Wemo Media and other high profile activists to try to re-create the entire ocean ecosystem in an online 3D environment called theBlu!
This integration of artist /developer submissions is part social network and part educational tool. It is meant to be an interactive world where people can explore, learn and create online! 😀
Lovin’ the FUN design and illustration from Jublin! 🙂 – Justin White (a.k.a. Jublin) of California brings us some great graphic design pieces …and YES they are available for sale (prints, T-shirts etc!) wooo hooo! If you *like* his work then check out his links B-LO 😀
“Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is an indie folk band with quite a few experimental and psychedelic influences. Their single “Home” become one of my favorite songs of 2009. As jonkmusic puts it, “Home” is a victory march to everywhere and, in fact, it is everywhere you are. Recently, André Anjos of RAC released a very subtle remix of Home giving it a much dreamy sound”. – The Music Ninja
Artist Dominic Wilcox’s series of miniature time-based sculptures add yet another fun dimension to what would normally be considered the mundane.
His series of seven sculptures, features tiny, hand-crafted figures attached to the watch hands. The scenes on the watch hands come to life in their movement around the dial.
