The Other Side

Tiny Tim is a badass. This is one of my favorite songs he's done. When I grow up, I want to be Tiny Tim.

I found this handy little guide on life hacker about resuming downloads. This is good stuff.

I can't quite explain this, so follow the link.
Also, if you are subject to epilepsy, you probably shouldn't watch this.

Jan Svankmajer

Jan Svankmajer is one of my favorite Slavic animators. He's done several amazing stop motion films such as "Tma/svetlo/tma (Darkness/Light/Darkness)" and "Meat Love." Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Coma is a nice little game/ story. It takes about 15min-30min to beat, and if you have that much time, try it out.

Sebb Min

Sebb Min

Here's a little film by Sebb, an artist I like quite a bit. The song is called Apperatur. Unfortunately his music isn't up for download, and it's exclusively for his youtube videos. Make sure to check out his other works

Big Man Japan

This is the next film I plan on watching:


This is the dance troupe House of Dangerkat. Enjoy.

Secret Agent Barbie

Wow, I don't think I've ever wanted to own a Barbie doll more than I do right now. Basically it's a Barbie that has a hidden camera in it's necklace.

Let me introduce you to Dan Hillier, one of my favorite artists

Cheap Eats: Oregon Culinary Institute

Cheap Eats: Oregon Culinary Institute

Dude, I didn't realize until now, but my school offers a three course lunch for 9 dollars. That's pretty awesome. Also, the food is really good (I try the culinary student's food after class now and then, and I can personally vouch for the baking program's food.) If you're in Portland, and want a really nice cheap fancy lunch, I'd recommend checking it out!


A nice stop motion film by Polish artist Szymon Kabala

Life Is Flashing Before Your Eyes
A nice little exert from Tony Vegas' Animated Acidburn Flashback Tabu. Vince Collins is a wonderful animator that did work between the 1960's and 1980's. Too bad he doesn't do work anymore. I strongly encourage y'all to check out more of his stuff, but keep in mind not all of it is work friendly.

Sideshow World, Sideshow Performers from around the world

Eating Glass
Ever wondered how people eat glass without cutting up their gastronomic tracks? Well, this here explains everything. But to keep it short, chew up the glass really fine into sand size pieces and swallow. If you do it wrong, you'll need major surgery, do it right, and you'll be a hero.

YouTube - The Chipophone | Diigo

The Chipophone
Linus Akesson just released a video about his new home made synthesizer the Chipophone. What a beautiful machine, I think he will be the envy of the 8 bit world. Speaking of which, stick around, I'll be posting about a couple 8 bit bands soon

I'm a little curious if this is real or not due to the sound quality changing any time he plays. I want to believe.

Thanks Dangerous Minds for the link.


Hypnosis? Stroking off lobsters in heat? I'm not quite sure if you would call this bestiality or custatiallity.
Yeah, it's a little messed up, but it's well worth the read.

Thanks Boingboing for the link

Messer Chups russian extrordinares.

Messer Chups is the latest installment of the Russian of musician Oleg Gitarkin. I'll take my best stab at describing this music: A surf rock, B-movie, progressive electronic band. Messer Chups is a spin off of the band "Messer fur Frau Muller" another band I'd recommend adding to your collection.
Definitely one of the best parts of listening to this band is trying to figure out what they sampled from. Being a big fan of B-movies and obscure music, you hear great references to classic composers, old horror movies (especially Ed Wood), and a number of obscure french favorites. If there are any fans out there of the Books, you might get a kick out of this.
Most Messer Chups albums are readily available on e-music, so I assume it's available on most other music buying platforms.

Credit's earned where credit's due, thanks Winfoxi for your help.
