  • Iconic Concert: AC/DC Live at River Plate 2009

    In December 2009 AC/DC performed three nights in Buenos Aires, Argentina to a crowd who’s seismic activity could be felt hundreds of miles away. Just look at the 110,000+ people jumping in unison to Hells Bells, it’s almost mesmerizing.

  • You Can Now Live Stream Weezer’s New Album For Free on iTunes

    One week ahead of it’s set release date, Weezer has begun streaming their newest studio project Everything Will Be Alright in the End on iTunes First Look. This will be Weezer’s 9th Studio album following Hurley, which only sold 175,000 albums worldwide. Though the declining numbers shouldn’t reflect their fan base or demand for their music, being that tickets for their October 27th show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom show are averaging $230. On the subject of an album name, Frontman, Rivers Cuomo recently told Rolling Stone “”On the surface, the name is optimistic,” frontman Rivers Cuomo recently told Rolling Stone of the potentially ominous album title. “But you’re not 100 percent sure how sincerely to take that. Those last three words can’t help but remind a sensitive reader of the end of themselves, of Weezer, of the world.” He went on to muse, “Part of me feels like, ‘Wow, this is bleak.’ But another part is like, ‘You can’t get rid of us that easily.’”

  • 100 Side by Side Comparisons of Biopic Actors and The People They Portrayed

    Recently we stumbled upon one of the most interesting Reddit threads we’ve seen in a while. The idea was basic, a visual comparison of actors in bio-pics against their real life influences, but after visualizing a few of these side-by-side photos, you can’t help but stare awestruck at the parallels these actors have with the figures they’re portraying. While you can give credit to the actors after actually watching and judging their performances, you have to give it up to the hair and make-up teams that transformed these actors. We pulled together some of the best examples and also created several dozen of our own originals as well.

  • You Won’t Believe This Man Is CGI [Video]

    In the fields of robotics and 3D animation there exists a belief in an uncanny valley where human movement is replicated almost perfectly, but the slight difference causes revulsion in the viewer. It’s the reason why so many people found the 3D animated films “Beowulf” and “The Polar Express” so creepy and something that animators keep in mind when creating their characters. But by the looks of this video, Australian animator Chris Jones has absolutely nothing to worry about. The man in this video looks and moves so realistically, you’re brain will never even entertain the thought that he’s completely computer generated. We’ve certainly come a long way from the blocky Max Headroom characters of the 80s! Check out more videos of the process involved in making such a detailed short and see other projects at Chris Jones’s website.

  • Your Favorite Classic Music Videos Are Retroactively Getting Product Placement

    Since their inception, the main purpose of music videos was to promote the artist. They were advertisements for the record first and foremost, but they also offered artists the chance to express themselves in a visual manner not possible with a CD. They may have been ads in that sense, but they still had artistic value of their own as a visual medium. But now, the line between music video and advertising will be blurred much more, and change will apply to videos that have already existed for years. Universal Music Group has entered into a three-way partnership with in-video advertising technology company MirriAd and ad agency Havas. Music videos from UMG’s huge stable of superstars will now feature advertisements of Havas clients via MirriAd’s software that transforms bare walls and other surfaces in the background of the videos into billboards. The technology has already been used in Aviici’s video for “You Make Me.” Using MirriAd, Havas was able to insert advertisements for their client Grand Marnier. You can see the post-production product placement in the before and after shots below.

  • If You Strap a GoPro to a Bird of Prey, We’ll Watch It

    Anything I’m doing immediately becomes secondary when someone in the office says “Hey did you see that new video of a hawk with a GoPro attached to it flying through the air?” Sold. In. How much? I want to see it right now. If I happen to be holding a baby when I hear that, I’m dropping said baby and running to the nearest desktop (preferably with a retna display) and ogling for what seems like an eternity at a first person perspective of an enormous bird soar through the air, most likely hunting for an animal to eat. In their latest bird x GoPro collab, the HD camera company features a video with David De Vleeschauwer and Debbie Pappyn as they travel to Mongolia to capture the point of view of a golden eagle as he soars over the Altai Mountains.

  • These Chalk Drawings Are Hiding In Plain Sight [30 Photos]

    Street art often has a reputation of conveying powerful political, anti-establishment messages. But not all street art has to be deep and though-provoking. Equally important is art that simply entertains and enhances a community, such as the work of David Zinn. Zinn’s street art has been delighting people in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 2001. His work is temporary, composed of just chalk, charcoal, and found materials. Often his characters, a menagerie of animals and monsters, interact with the objects or cracks in the sidewalks and walls on which they appear. Some of our favorites are in the gallery, but you can see much more at Zinn Art and keep up with his most current work on Facebook.

Truly created an installation called Vanitas, a tribute to a widely depicted theme in the history of arts. “Alongside symbols of worldly ambition, scientific accomplishments, and vanity, we find allegories of the frail and transient nature of our existence.
