I originally heard this song on the Jam Band station my boss always listens to at work and I just really liked the sound of it.
I’m not much of a fan of jam band stuff, but this song was funny and the I thought the hook of the song was really clever.
I guess a YouTube user by the name of lazyboy0172 created the animation of the music video. I chose this one out of the many other live concert videos on YouTube because it helps to follow along with the song really easily.
I think I posted an article about Banksy a while back, but I came across it again and was just amazed at the graffiti featured on the site.
There’s tons of really artistic graffiti here; stuff that actually has meaning both outdoors and indoors. It’s great scrolling through the pictures on the site and thinking about what the artist’s intention was behind the piece.
I was recently contacted by Nicholas from Artsy.net who let me know about a great resource page that Artsy has put together all about Banksy, which features Banksy’s bio, 70+ of his works, up-to-date exhibitions, current shows, in-depth articles, and related artists. Awesome!
Champion has thought up a really fun way to get people to buy more hoodies, as if you needed another reason since hoodies are so awesome already, by thinking up Hoodie Remix.
You can design your very own hoodie, complete with crazy designs on every panel of the sweater and have the chance to have your design chosen by Champion to be produced and a $500 prize.
You have until March 31st to submit your design, but if you’re too late, you can still check out all the great designs that other people have created.
On April 23, 2009 twelve quarterfinalists will be chosen, which will then be posted in a gallery for voting until May 6th where six will be chosen as finalists and will be voted on again, where one lucky person will win.
After reading an essay assigned for my English assignment, I came across a name, Jules Feiffer. And thanks to good ol’ Google I learned a little something. Apparently, he is most known for his illustrative work featured in comic strips and children books, but even had his work appear in some Playboy issues. Not only is he a talented artist, but he’s written screenplays and short stories. He started his education at the Art Students League in New York and the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. See, you learn something new everyday.
Renting rooms in your house is nothing new, but renting out a room for storage is a different idea. Homstie has created a marketplace that lets you sell empty space in your home for other people to use as storage space.
If you’ve ever used a professional storage space, you know how stupidly expensive it can be, so this is a really great option to save some cash.
There aren’t a whole lot of open spaces listed yet, since the site is so new, but I’m sure it’ll pick up after a while. Who knows, set up a listing and see if anyone contacts you.
Trust is the first issue that came to my mind when I saw the site. I wouldn’t want anything expensive of mine sitting in someone else’s house. What if they were robbed or if they moved away with my stuff?
Still a really cool idea, that just needs a little tweaking… and an insurance policy.
