DJ Food: Raiding the 20th Century

This is an haunting recording by DJ Food (AKA Strictly Kev) of the history of cutting up, sampling and looping music, it’s pieced together from different recordings from the 20th century.

It’s really interesting to hear, combining music and spoken word. I think this might be the same recording with the musical preamble stripped off, but I’m not entirely sure as I don’t have time to listen to them both at the moment…

I’ve uploaded it for the unlikely event that Soundcloud disapears/deletes it…

Vi Hart Makes a Video about Makeing a Video about How She Makes Her Videos

I’ve shared a few of Vi Hart’s videos before, they are a gift to anyone who wants to make math fun because they are fun and about math. She made a documentary with ebstudioslive about how she makes he videos then she made a video about how he made that video, and all her other videos.

Recursion is fun…

Lichtenstein Makeup by @c0louredlights

Have actual hi res images but thought I’d upload this in the meantime… Had wanted to redo my pop art makeup for ages as it was my first ever finished look and I know I’ve learned a lot since then, though I still love the original pictures. Rebecca’s hair being blue and incredible face made a great opportunity to try it again.

I have a soft spot for posting pictures of People wearing Lichtenstein Makeup. some of my  most viewed blog posts of all time are collections of Lichtenstein make up images and I’ve also posted a tutorial I found online which people seemed to like.

So I was pleasantly surprised when twitter suggested I follow @C0LOUREDLIGHTS (Tumblr) a Glasgow based make up artist and upon looking at her profile saw an example of Lichtenstein style make up. Looking through her Tumblr I found yet another which made me even happier:

Crazy Katana Headphones

I’m not one to describe things as being “Crazy” lightly but in this case that is actually what these headphones by Japanese Company Solid Alliance are actually called. At first thought you’d think it might be quite cool to wonder about looking like your cranium had been skewered by a roaming ronin (Who for some reason decided not to reclaim his sword) but thinking about it, these actually defeat the purpose of headphones.

I wear headphones as a means of trying to blank the world out, if you wore these you would have a constant stream of people hassling you to comment on your, arguably quite cool, headphones.

They don’t just come in Katana form though, the “Crazy” range also includes an apple with an arrow through it, a mushroom and mini ears.

There is also a second set which allows you to have bolts (Called the Franken) a banana, cat’s paws or sushi coming out of your ears…
