The Rape of the Sabine Women

Eve Sussman’s film is extravagantly beautiful, endlessly noble and largely devoid of humor. Check out the review in the NY Times. Looks amazing, and Eve Sussman may surpass Matthew Barney in the most over hyped, over rated artist ever.

Jason Nocito

Nice photography portfolio.

Stories From the Road

The 2003 documentary about three fans following PJ Harvey around the world. Mucho kudos to my buddy Kyle, who starred in it and I believe directed and edited it as well.

Open your mind

Over 60 interviews with film directors who have helped European cinema, and cinema in general evolve. Amazing resource, will take forever to read. "Read 'em with wide eyes and open mind." While exploring through the site found this juicy piece of knowledge, "Five Classic Mistakes Made by Short Film Directors".

Matt Furie

Great pieces, including the piece above which was the spitting image of me as a kid. Also, some cool wallpaper to download!

photo of the day: wednesday

Last night I stopped by my local Aurora Coffee shop in L5P and stumbled on these amazing pieces. When I asked the dude whipping me up an espresso who the artist was, his reply was it was a "confidential" artist, reason being he does a lot of graffiti and doesn't want to be identified. I tried to press harder with no luck. If you have any idea who did these, please let me know!!

Wooster Advice

Here's an excerpt from their "Responding to Criticism" post... Wooster is a great resource for inspirational street art.

"Here's some what the Spring Street experience taught us:
1. That we only want to be around passionate people in our lives.
2. That if you put all your heart and soul into something, you can achieve anything - absolutely anything.
3. That it's not possible to please everyone. That the more people you please, the more people will want to take you down.
4. That you must trust your instincts. Don't let people tell you that things have to be done a certain way. They don't.
5. Share things with others. Don't make it all about you. Make it about "us".
6. Keep listening and keep learning.
7. Take criticism seriously, but don't let it stop you from doing what you want to do.
8. Be true to yourself."

Hello Tomorrow

Amazing spot for Adidas directed by Spike Jones. Haunting soundtrack by Karen Orzolek of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Squeak E. Clean. It's really too bad the quality isn't that great, I'm looking for a better higher-res version.

Continuing roll of rocking in Japan, check out the super energetic flow of Blankey Jet City. Also check out their myspace profile, where you can find more videos like the one below.

David Black

Very nice photography, Mr. Black.

Le Grand Content

A Film by Clemens Kogler together with Karo Szmit. Voice by Andre Tschinder. Le Grand Content examines the omnipresent Powerpoint-culture in search for its philosophical potential. Intersections and diagrams are assembled to form a grand 'association-chain-massacre'. which challenges itself to answer all questions of the universe and some more. Of course, it totally fails this assignment, but in its failure it still manages to produce some magical nuance and shades between the great topics death, cable tv, emotions and hamsters.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden and working on a freelance basis, Jenny Mortsell has some amazing skill with that pencil of hers.

OCEANS ELEVEN (original)

Hi, How Are You

The year 2006 saw Johnston’s artwork included in the Whitney Biennial of Contemporary Art, as well as gallery shows in London and New York. In his drawings and paintings, Johnston explores themes of the Everyman,! unrequited love, the prevalence of evil in the world, redemption, Christianity, comics and myth. His cast of recurring characters includes Joe the Boxer/Everyman, a many-eyed demon, cat-people, Captain America, the Devil, a frog named Jeremiah the Innocent, and his muse “Laurie.”

And if you have no idea who I'm talking about, check out the best documentary of last year.
