Sticky running 1000 miles for the MNDA

Please forgive this re-/cross-/multiple-posting/email but I have a cause… Here’s a call for support for Johnny “Sticky” Budden: Parkour Traceur/free runner extraordinaire… He’s speeding 1,000 miles on foot across and around the length of the UK and on to Paris… Continue Reading →

Andréa Mallard on why design is too important to be left to designers

[Generation] Logo

Love, love, love this song. It’s “old” now, from 2007, back when the hipster movement was just starting to gain traction around the world. Ironic and witty. Your gran’s got her own logo.

DIY Canon macro lens: howto video…

Lovely eight minute video – perhaps shot on a Canon 5D mkII? (love that bokeh) – how to convert a stock kit lens into a macro. This is a stellar bit of cottage industry engineering. Via Gadget Lab If you… Continue Reading →

The Forbidden Room. Wow.

Espanish gitana Barcelones. K te cagas.

I prefer her track Malamente but this _video_ is a hum-dinger. Perhaps this more downbeat and mantra-like song helps the cinematically stylised symbolism shine through. Like a flamethrower.

Of British expats, French electronics shops, Spanish newspapers and Canadian photographers.
