Controlling The Mind Controllers

Advertising is every where in our society. It infiltrates our brains with out us even knowing it. The expert ad folks know it and they know how to use it. In this video, Derren Brown turns the tables on two such people. Watch until the end to see how he influences them to create a design based of his predetermined elements.

Holy Packrat Batman!

Mom, you used to always call me a packrat but damn, I was never this bad. This poor guy lives with his pack rat mother. I think its time to move. Note that she's not just a packrat, but she's a huge eBay junkie. There are 5mb worth of unbelievable pictures here with an explanation of every one.

It Makes Me Wonder How I keep From Going Under

This is a picture by Zena Holloway. In this collection there are a bunch of really cool under water shots.

Zena is just one of many photographers from the Peter Bailey Company.

Bad Music Radio

Well since we are on the topic of bad music, I thought I would share this site with you. As many of you know, I am a musician myself. This music being out there makes me feel much better about my own music.

Please be sure to check out these gems:
Treat Your Mother Right - Mr. T
Zip Zap Rap - Devastatin' Dave
Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - William Shattner

You can also check out the famous Bad Album Cover site while you are at it. It's nice to listen to the bad music while browsing the covers. Just open another browser window.

Groovy Dancer

Here we have a very cool dance video. There's no denying that she's a groovy and talented dancer. There's also the cool effect of slowing down the music for video recording purposes, then speeding the video up to the correct musical tempo.

Absorb Funk Through Osmosis

Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra OSMOSIS

I just found this guy on He's got the real deal on 70's garage Funk. It's not the best production value, (I think he's all analog and using a 4 track or something), but if you're like me you will enjoy the theme of Funk and the Cosmos. He is a true candidate for the Funkship.

Google Me This, Batman...

"After creating Montage-a-google, several people wrote to me suggesting I make a game based on the same technology. Montage-a-google is a simple web app that uses Google's image search to generate a large gridded montage of images based on keywords (search terms) entered by the user. Guess-the-google reverses this process by picking the keywords for you, the player must then guess what keyword made up the image - it's surprisingly addictive."

This is a cool little game that feels partly like Photo Hunt & Trivia. You have to really look at some of the pictures to figure out what keyword would have created such results. Try it!

The Coolest Picture Ever

I know I have said that before, but, this might actually be the Coolest Picture Ever! Use the slider on the right to zoom in and out of the picture.

Epic 2014

"You're about to watch a future history of the media by Robin Sloan and Matt Thompson, with music by Aaron McLeran."

This Flash movie tells a fictional story (at least in the future section) but is probably right on target. I think you'll find it interesting.
