Things Kari Likes: Music, Art, Design, Lobsters


I am obsessed with Odopod‘s redesign. My friend Pete is a Senior Developer there and clued me in to the recent change and I absolutely love it. There are so many things to explore! Not only is their work amazing ( Milk’s White Gold Campaign? Hello?), but they seem like a fun group of folks. Also, their site is PINK! yay.

I think everyone should check out every nook and cranny of this site, maybe while you are bored at work…

Everything In Its Right Place

So I just bought my Groove Armada, and Etienne de Crecy/ Alex Gopher tickets. Pretty excited. Not gonna lie.. Anywho, so I’ve been listening to a lot of The Twelves remixes these days. Super catchy and fun. Unfortunately I was in LA, while they were playing up in SF. Bummer. Anywho, they have been keeping me distracted at work. My toes do a lot of tapping.

Ive also discovered Gigamesh. He’s got a pretty awesome remix of my favorite Radiohead song everrrr. Everthing In Its Right Place. Also check out the mix below.

Moustache Music

I’m on a roll here with blog posts so thought I’d end on a music one. I pulled up an old playlist on my iPod and thought I’d post some tracks from that. These are some of my faves. First is a remix of a LAZRtag song. LAZRtag is composed of two dudes from LA woo woo. LUVTEK is part one and he is totally rad, fun, and only like 22. Part two is StellarDRV who I know nothing about. DJ Barletta the remixer, is also worth checking out. By the way, Work is definitely not play for me, even thought I listen to this at work. Ironic. Maybe.

The next track is a SebastiAn track remixed by Erol Alkan who is playing in LA next weekend, and I’m super bummed I’m going to miss it. Even though I’ll be in LA. Gah. I love them both in a special way.

Lastly I have posted a track remixed by my all-time love Stuart Price aka Jacques Lu Cont aka Thin White Duke aka Les Rythmes Digitales. This list goes on. I adore him in so many ways. And this track is no exception.

Anywho this post includes some of my all time faves and I hope you enjoy. This music might be better enjoyed with a moustache on. (See Above)

MP3: LAZRtag – Work Is Play (Barletta Boom Blast Fix)
MP3: SebastiAn – Momy (Erol Alkan’s Simple, Yet Effective Edit)
MP3: Chili Hifly – Is It Love (Les Rythmes Digitales Remix)

I ♥ Videos

The Presets are rad. I’ve posted about them before although the link is probably dead now. I thought this video for “If I Know You” was neat. Its also shot in LA which is cool. And who doesn’t like dancing? I REALLY want to go to the ballet sometime. I mean its right down the street.

Space and the Universe

Let me start with SpaceCollective. I’ll just quote their welcome statement to give a sense of what sort of content is on this site. “SpaceCollective. Where forward thinking terrestrials exchange ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction today.” The UI design for this site is lovely. I adore it. Lots of information displayed in an organized, understandable way. Interesting videos, blog posts, people. Not to mention, the orb of awesomeness that exists on the landing page. Check it Out. For Serious.

NOW onto the Universe. Welcome to The Universe in ’09 from SEED Magazine. This unique organization of articles, kinda similar to the Spectra Newsreader I posted about earlier. Categories represented with color is something I’m drawn to. Obviously. Anywho, its worth it just to see how the interaction works, OR to learn about the Black Hole.
