#92; An assortment of crap

Been a while since the last post so I've got a lot of stuff to stick up here, which I'm just going to rattle through.

First, if you like comic books/comic book art, check out Two Page Spread. Showcasing great comic book artists in double page spread form. Really cool:

I like this ad:

Andreas Nilsson - SPP "Live Now" from BLDG//WLF on Vimeo.

As creative review points out, it's a very standard and common idea, but executed very nicely.

This video is surprisingly awesome. Break dancing to (great) classical music:

I've tried a variety of productivity helping tools and blogs etc. This one is as good as any of them.

This video is one of the very first film animations. I couldn't make this today. It's really cool, considering when it's from:

Typographic beauty (shop, website, making of):

The consistently entertaining and good blog, ITIABTWC, just finished a really good "hall of fame" of ads from recent (&not so recent) years. Go check it - here are some of my favourites from his selection:
Ok, enough stealing videos from someone else's site.

This is nice, isn't it:

Finally, a brief rant about Apple. If you went onto the Apple site a few days ago there was one big message saying "tomorrow is just another day. That you'll never forget." That should've meant a new thing like an ipad but better, like an iHover (yes, that would be some sort of white personal hovering transport thing). But instead Apple revealed that the Beatles' music is now available from iTunes. The Beatles were/are great, and this was obviously a big deal for apple, but they seem to have confused their personal triumph with things that other people care about. All that music has been readily available to everyone who wants it for ages. Don't big up stuff that people don't care about, because it makes you look stupid. That's what I think, anyway. 

Vomit over, I'm done for now.
