Chicago psychedelic rock band Secret Colours put out a fantastic new video this week for the song “Blackhole”. It was directed by Cory Solon along with Katey Meyer who is also the actress in the video. Good song and a good video. Definiely check out the band on their website here.
Top Gear posted this awesome video today on Facebook. It’s called Micro Mayhem and it’s by Stoopid Buddies Stoodios, the people behind Robot Chicken. This is the best, and only Micro Machines animated toy car chase video I’ve ever seen. That said, I’d love to see many more!
It’s Saturday morning and I’m happy to see that a new episode of one of my favourite web series, Model Wife is up! As always, the guys are hilarious and Karme Boixadera looks gorgeous, and the show is very well written. Of course, the ending totally has me waiting for the next episode to see what happens. Check it out, and subscribe to their channel!
Project Kronos is an amazing short sci-fi film I found today on Vimeo, and produced by Masked Frame Pictures. It’s well shot, has fantastic sound design and motion graphics, not to mention a great and well written story. Enjoy, and I’ll see you in the future.
Tokyo City Symphony is an amazing music, video, improvisational experience. What you do is use your keyboard to play the music samples and 3D projection mapping on a small model of the city. You record it and share to Facebook and Twitter and you can watch yours along with everybody else’s on the site. I only wish it would record to a file or an individual Youtube link.
I love Jeremy’s poster for this month’s PANIC! and I think a lot of other people did too as it was stolen off the walls of Beauty Bar a couple of times. Here’s some of the rest of the photos from the night. I enjoyed my set and love that people danced to the new SULK tune “Flowers”. I’m all about playing new music and bringing in new artists into our sets.
I didn’t think I could be more excited about Pacific Rim but this trailer from WonderCon is just amazing. Damn. It looks like Guillermo Del Toro has set a new standard here. There’s a lot of robot vs monster action in this trailer and goddamn, the ending shots of the robot using a fucking giant boat like a baseball bat against a monster made me laugh with joy. The fact that I just typed that last sentence makes me smile.
Pacific Rim opens July 12, 2013. See you at the theater.
I went to C2E2 this weekend and shot these awesome photos. I had a lot of fun with friends, saw some great costumes, found the Batman figure by DC Comics from Arkham City that I’ve wanted for a while and even a Robocop figure that was a great deal I couldn’t resist. It was nice running into my friend Titania Lyn who was working a booth called I Love Boobies, and don’t we all? In the photos, check out the progress of the guy making the giant chalk drawing on the floor over the 4-5 hours that I was there. I also met artist Stephen Burger, who sold me a copy of his first and new graphic novel called Talk! and a signed print of a zombie Marilyn Monroe. Pretty damn cool.

I shot some new photos recently with my 35mm Kodak VR35 film camera. My friend Keith dubbed it the Darth Vader camera because it kinda looks like Darth Vader. I spent some time walking in the Loop the other night and documenting the demolition of the house across the street from me. I would guess that the 2 flat house was around 100 years old. I felt I had to take photos of it’s final hours. There’s a timelapse video in the works as well, but that’s for another post. For now, let’s enjoy the rest of the photos.
