Okay, my bad for not doing these posts on a more regular basis, though the important thing is that I’m still updating the blog, right? (Right.) Anyhow, a couple of things, I’ll be extending my subscription to my webhost (HostSG!) for another year! I’m still deciding if I really need to pay for server space, though I suppose it’s nice to know that everything is backed up on a local server. Maybe it helps put my mind at ease. Maybe.
Well, apart from today’s curated list of links, today’s featured images were taken from a secret collaborative gig done up by Sixx and Nicholas Chim at The Pigeonhole. There’ll also be a video uploaded to Sixx’s YouTube page in the near future, and I’ll be sure to tell you all about it when it goes live. I also spent the last weekend checking out Artsyful and Grin Affair, both of which I hope I’ll do up blog posts very soon.
Fantastically illuminating piece into the inner workings and driving force of Joshua Oppenheimer’s newest work, an inside look into the the Indonesian Death Squads that were “instrumental” to the country’s reforms back in the Sixties. Having a passion for documentaries and having made one when I was in university, I must say, it is supremely challenging to achieve this sort of clarity when it comes to the documentary making process.
More a “take-a look-at-this-and-let-your-mouth-gape”, then wrangle your consumerist heart in pain as you realise this amazing platform of threads and colours is out-of-stock.
Some light reading to have you thinking about the ramifications of current mobile and tablet uptake. My little brain spark came when I realised that I could use my mobile or tablet as some kind of Shuttle PC, and connect screens and keyboards to each device. Like some kind of “instant-workstation.” It bears thinking, if the current ecosystem of desktop / laptop computing will become one with mobile computing. *ohhmmmmmmm*
More good stuff from Red Bull’s Music Academy. As a disclaimer, I’m a bass player, and Thundercat happens to be the bass player for Brainfeeder material. Suffice to say, I like Brainfeeder too. Still, listen to this in the later hours of a quiet evening, and let all the coils of this world slowly unwind as you sip on whatever poison of your own making.
Utterly trippy craft tutorial video. I also love the commentary that goes along with it. I’m just imagining a rather whimsical girl in a dorky coloured pull-over talking to herself as she folds and colours her hexaflexagons.
