Boys! Girls! Friends! Lovers!

I’m beginning to see a trend here, in only my second week at Artistic Things:  I don’t know much about all of this tech stuff.   I see cars like this and all I can think about is how much fun they’d be to drive up I-65 in that long, dull corridor between Lafeyette and Gary, IN right before taking the ramp onto I-94 to Chicago.  I see cars like this and think about that stretch of road.  It’s about a 100-mile-long stretch full of nothing but cornfields, the occasional cop who never pulls anyone over, and open road where the average speed is about 80 MPH.  Maybe I’m too much of a speed freak or too little of a technogeek, but I see this very pretty chassis, the wide rims, ths gorgeously curvy lines, the ostentatious grille and ovular headlights and all I can think about is how funny it would be to be able to cross the Indiana/Illinois border at 170 MPH in this luxury speedster from Morgan Auto.

Hello faithful readers,

I’d like to present a new feature that I’m hoping will become a semi-regular weekly thing. The plan? I find the best of the best music, the cream of the melodic crop, the rockin’ right stuff, bands that have what the French call a certain… I don’t know what. I take these bands, the best that Canada has to offer, and I let them explain in their own words why you should, nay, must check them out.

Boys! Girls! Friends! Lovers!

From here (where my view is as good as yours,) this installation by Bordeaux-trained dig art team 2Roq looks kind of like a a warped game of Tetris played drunkenly with magnetic poetry segments.  On the other hand, our view, dears, isn’t necessarily the optimal one for this particular piece.  What the video doesn’t show you is that the people milling about along the floor are actually providing those words by sending te4xt messages to the walls and are being sent through a projector, onto the wall via projector.  The other cool part– other than the wickedly creepy lighting in that space– is that each text creates a corresponding sound as its sent to the wall.  I wonder whether the length of the word sent int he text corresponds to how low the sound is once it gets to the wall?

Ok, so this may very well be the most boring GD video you’ve watched this week, and I know it’s rather lengthy, but you have to give Reuben Margolin props– he’s just as bored as you are, but what do YOU have to show for it? Surely not kinetic sculptures, simple fools!

rpm 09 2 It may be over for this year, but...

“This is the challenge… record an album in 28 days, just because you can.”

RPM stands for Record Production Month. It’s a great way for musicians to spice up the long winter months, or an exciting stand-alone challenge for any month out of the year.
