Uniqlo Calendar

I know its been too long since my last post, but thought a calendar post would be a nice way to start off the new year (granted its almost the end of January but still). So I have been quite obsessed with Uniqlo’s Calendar. Its pure awesome. Considering I just got back from Japan, this seems like an appropriate screensaver to have. Not only is it well-designed, it tells me the freakin date, weather, and displays some lovely time-lapse video content. I particularly fond of the penguin parade, the ninjas fighting on the roof in Tochigi, Shibuya crossing (I’ve been there!), and all the other cuteness that ensues. Anywho, you should get this screensaver too.

I dont like my hair neat. I can’t get enough of this video and I haven’t posted a video in awhile so I thought now was as good a time as any. Tiga is great. I have tried to see him twice now, both times unsuccessfully which is truly a shame. I really don’t have much to add to this other than I just found out he has a podcast which seems interesting, so I will be checking it out. I’ve also included Shoes for your downloading pleasure.

In For The Kill

This La Roux video is beautiful. And you can find The Twelves remix of this song below. (I’m more a fan of the remix than the original. Shhhhh.) La Roux is a Brit Electropop duo, but I just love the look of this video.

So here is some additional music randomness for you (Totally unrelated to the group above). I just bought a ton o stuff off The Whitest Boy Alive‘s merch store Bubbles For Sale. Loving the illustrations and of course anything associated with Erlend Øye, who’s adorably nerdy.

Ummm this video is awesome. I guess I have a soft spot for anything stop motion. Coraline? magical. k-os is a rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer from Canada and totally awesome. Enjoying this song very much, and the video as well.

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.

In case you haven’t seen this yet, this is the new video for the new Röyksopp song, Happy Up Here. SO great. This video fits the song perfectly. Super stylish. Space Invaders? Yes. Röyksopp can do not wrong in my opinion. Also came across this track off a B-Side which has been on repeat. Love. I’m ready for the new album. I’m ready! I’m ready! I’m ready!

I absolutely adore this video. You can probably guess one of the reasons why. I hope you enjoy it too. Let me take this opportunity to also gush over how awesome Vimeo is. Great design, great content, and a great staff. This would hands down, be my dream company to work for. I hope to someday upload some videos to this site, but for now, tuning in to watch awesome videos will suffice.

Aer Obama

As we all know, Barack ( we are totally on a first name basis) is now our President which I think is such a wonderful thing. Directing team Gold put together this adorable video to the sounds of Adam Freeland’s remix of Daft Punk’s “Aerodynamic”. Its pretty much amazing, in multiple ways.

So this isn’t my official first post. I just wrote this lovely, heart-felt first post, and then my house went black (IE the power went out) I was lighting candles and everything all by myself on a Friday night like the cool kid I am and then the light returned…Anywho I have created this blog more for myself than anyone else, but if some people happen to read it, the more the merrier. I will kick it off with some music. So lately I have been more than obsessed with Pnau‘s self titled album. I listen to it just about everyday and I hope you do to. A special thanks to Keyvon for the introduction.
