This is a literal interpretation of everyone's favorite A-HA song ( I think it's the only A-HA song we know) It is hilarious... found myself LOLing.

Lego Madness

I know there are a lot of things going around the internets about getting life-size Lego sculptures of yourself made for $60K... but this is waaaay better.

Check out Jason Freeny's Micro Schematic. Pretty redonkulously good.

I love these ink/watercolor illustrations by Nathan Manire. He uses swirls, lines and different shapes to make these awesome portraits of Hunter S. Thompson, Jack White and Tome Yorke. The use of shapes and lines to illustrate make the whole thing look very fluid and his subtle use of color really makes the portraits pop.

Takeaway Videos

I just discovered La Blogotheque's Takeaway Video Podcasts and they are friggin' amazing. Here is the basic premise of the series...

Every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.

The Take away shows exist since April 2006. There was Chryde, who wanted to shake things up and find another way to share music, and there was Vincent Moon, who wanted to film music differently. Chryde offered Moon to go and film musicians in the city, Moon seized the idea and glorified it. Since then, other directors across the world joined this project, and we plan to extend it worldwide.

I watched most of my favorite bands but I can't stop watching the Bon Iver videos. THe Takeaway video of 'Skinny Love' makes me wanna pack up and go to Paris for their show tomorrow night!
