Just watched this video via Wooster Collective. It’s really well done, and I enjoyed listening to CB discuss the additional layers that bullet holes add to his work.
Australian photographer Beth Lane documents the recent flooding in Brisbane.
You may remember him as ‘student in library’ from Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but now Tom Hanks’ son Chester (or Chet Haze, as his homies like to call him) is breaking into the music business.
So far, he’s unleashed two songs onto the interwebs. Generating the most buzz is this young emcee’s version of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” – tailored for Northwestern University (where Chet is a sophomore in theater). He calls this soon-to-be-chart-topping hit “White & Purple”. For those of you that do not follow college football and are blissfully unaware of Big 10 Conference Schools, White & Purple are the university’s colors.
To be honest, I didn’t know who Wiz Khalifa was before this, because to my knowledge, his father wasn’t in Turner & Hooch.
According to NU’s newspaper, The Daily Northwestern, Chet asserts, “I’m not my dad. I am my own person.”
It’s true. His father has been a soldier, a wooden cowboy, a detective, a conspiracy theorist, a loveable doofus, a cop, a man with one red shoe, and a cross dresser – but he has never been a frat boy rapper.
Fun Facts: At the time of this posting, there’ve been approximately 151,000 views of the video.
Also at the time of this posting, there are approximately 170,000 students attending Northwestern University.
I hope that this series by Intel continues. Love this video bio about the very successful blogger The Sartorialist
Thanks to boooooooom for letting me know about this. The trailer is dope, and the soundtrack is by Chemical Brothers.
What’s the New Year without a Top Ten list? It seems everybody’s got a take on what was the best this last year had to offer. And that’s great, because while I’m clicking through these endless lists, it looks like I’m at my desk working, when really all I’m thinking about is what I’m going to wear to the Tremble New Year’s Day party.
Below are my favorite ways to waste time – my Top Ten List of Top 10 Lists.
1. The Top 10 Dirtiest Hotels of 2010 – Check this travel site to find places to create lasting vacation memories.
2. The Top 10 Bollywood Films of 2010 – Who doesn’t love a good choreographed dance number?
3. The Top 10 Best Comic Books & Graphic Novels of 2010 on Amazon dot com – This Top 10 is kind of a Top 20 because it’s split into “Editor’s Picks” and “Customer Favorites.” I agree more with “Customer Favorites.” Scott Pilgrim 6 was epic. It is the chronicle of our time. There, I said it. Actually, Joss Whedon said it. But I agree.
4. The Top Ten Celebrity Break Ups of 2010 – Nothing makes me giddier than the misery of pretty people.
5. The Top Ten Freakishly Specific Top Ten Lists from the Onion A/V Club – this is a Top Ten List from a magazine’s website about Top Ten Lists found on a free press newspaper’s website. A concept so ironic it should be wearing black cigarette jeans and be on its way to a Decemberists concert.
6. Top Ten Archeological Finds of 2010 – I assume we have one Mr. Indiana Jones to thank for this one.
7. Top Ten Viral Videos that don’t have Antoine Dodson in Them – this Huffington Post Top Ten List was called Top Ten Viral Videos, but all ten were about Antoine Dodson.
8. Top 10 Best Comedians of 2010 – The year may be over, but the laughs never stop! Until they do.
9. Top 10 Science Stories of 2010 – This is interesting and should help you sound smart when you’re making small talk with that hot chick wearing the Yale sweatshirt.
10. Top 10 of Everything 2010 from Time Magazine – Kanye West is on 8 of these lists. Somebody’s got a man-crush, it seems.
