Gotta Share! Surprise Musical (video)

Good taste by Ira Glass (video)

Revisited this video again this week. A lesson in perseverance that’s worth hearing over and over.

Coincidentally, swissmiss just posted a quote by Bill Withers that has a similar message.

“You can’t get to wonderful without passing by alright.”

It was shared by Andrew Zuckerman at Behance’s 99% Conference that’s just wrapping up. I’d love to attend sometime. Seems incredibly inspirational.

Furr by Blitzen Trapper (video)

I’ve loved Blitzen Trapper’s music for a while now but had never come across this video until today. The Portland band’s video was done by Portland girl Jade Harris using only paper, no animation programs, and over 3000 photos. Isn’t it lovely?

Coast Modern Film

Filmmakers Michael Bernard and Gavin Froome take you on a journey through three generations of modernist movements on the West Coast of North America.

From Rudolf Schindler and Richard Neutra’s 1920s Hollywood, through to the second wave of post WWII America to today’s current modernist renaissance.

This film speaks with the architects and their patrons and asks if Modernism’s time has finally come or did it ever really go away.

Coast Modern is set for completion this Fall. Following @CoastModernFilm for updates. I definitely want to see this.

They will talk about how the space that one lives in influences their life. The modernist houses themselves will take centre stage, shot in high definition: the open plans, simplicity of form and integration of site will awe and inspire.

Ross Russell on his incredible transforming Sliding House in the countryside of East Anglia, England:

I’ve never built a house before, but basically I came to it simply with some capital, some time and enthusiasm.

13 Most Beautiful… Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

13 Most Beautiful… Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, now available from Plexifilm.

“Between 1964 and 1966, Andy Warhol shot nearly 500 Screen Tests, beautiful and revealing portraits of hundreds of different individuals, from the famous to the anonymous, all visitors to his studio, the Factory. Subjects were captured in stark relief by a strong keylight, and filmed by Warhol with his stationary 16mm Bolex camera on silent, black and white, 100-foot rolls of film. The resulting two-and-a-half-minute film reels were then screened in slow motion, resulting in a fascinating collection of four-minute masterpieces that startle and entrance, mesmerizing in the purest sense of the word.

Songwriters Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, formerly of the band Luna and currently recording as Dean & Britta, incorporated original compositions as well as cover songs to create new soundtracks for the 13 films.”

TOKYO! The Movie

Keeping an eye out for TOKYO!, a movie comprised of three shorts directed by Michel Gondry, Leos Carax & Bong Joon-ho.

In TOKYO!, three of the world’s greatest filmmakers come together for an omnibus triptych examining the nature of one unforgettable city as it’s shaped by the disparate people who live, work (and even run amok!) inside one enormous, constantly evolving, densely populated Japanese megalopolis – the ravishing and inimitable Tokyo.

Objectified: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit

Objectified: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit (he also directed Helvetica)

Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability.

Through vérité footage and in-depth conversations, the film documents the creative processes of some of the world’s most influential product designers, and looks at how the things they make impact our lives. What can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves?

I. Can’t. Wait! To see this.
