 Recycle...reuse..

I came across this Argentine artist on Etsy today. Cynthia Del Giudice’s hand made, delicate, abstract flowers are made out of fused plastic bags! The idea of using everyday material, that’s generaly diregarded and often not even recycled, to create beautiful pieces of art is inspiring.

This Los Angeles band, to me sounds like a mixture of Gogol Bordello and System of a Down. They’ve been around for a couple of years and have a few albums under their belts.  Their  fun and unique bordello / middle eastern sound is bound to make you wanna shimmy shimmy.
Hope you enjoy it. Visa!

Last night i had the pleasure of seeing Jenny
Lewis live at the beautiful  Herbst theater in San Francisco. The
theater is amazingly beautiful. Beautiful old world details and
acoustics.

This woman has a wonderful voice and soul. If
you’re not already a fan be sure to check her out. She is currently
touring for her new album: Acid Tongue.  (Although i think Rabbit Fur
Coat is my favorite) and if you’re into folk/bluegrass etc be sure to
check out Jonathan Wilson.

This is a brilliant idea… what’s next: run around to get your laptop charged :)

r Mobile phone battery dead? Try dancing

REUTERS

LONDON (Reuters) – What do you do if you are stuck in a field at a pop festival but there’s trouble ahead because your mobile phone’s battery is about to run out?

Thanks to a new gizmo, you now just need to face the music and dance.

Mobile phone operator Orange said on Tuesday it had teamed up with GotWind, a firm specializing in renewable energy, to produce a recharger powered by dance energy alone.

The portable kinetic energy chargers will be given a test run at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, the world’s biggest greenfield music and arts celebration that begins on a farm in Somerset on Friday.

Orange said the prototype chargers weigh the same as a phone and are about the size of a pack of cards.

Attached to the user’s arm, they employ a system of weights and magnets which provide an electric current to top up charge in a storage battery. This can then later be used to recharge the phone.

“We wanted to create a fun, engaging and interactive product which would encourage users to have a laugh while charging their mobile phone and at the same time test out a new energy-efficient prototype,” said Hattie Magee, Head of Partnerships at Orange UK.

Missing concert pig found in desert

The Press Association

A giant inflatable pig that disappeared from a US pop concert, floating into the night skies and the headlines, has been found in pieces in the desert.

The helium-filled balloon, released during former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters’ act on Sunday at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, was discovered a few miles away.

Concert organisers had offered a £5,000 reward for its return which will be split between two householders who found piles of pink plastic in their gardens without realising what it was.

As tall as a two-storey house and as wide as two buses, the pig escaped and floated away as Waters played a version of Pink Floyd’s Pigs from the 1977 album Animals.

“It wasn’t really supposed to happen that way. I don’t have the details,” festival spokeswoman Marcee Rondan said.

The pig displayed the words “Don’t be led to the slaughter” and a cartoon of Uncle Sam holding two bloody cleavers.

The other side read “Fear builds walls” and the underside read “Obama” with a ticked ballot box for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
