I’ve been a fan of Dinosaur Jr. since I was 12 years old so it’s awesome to see that the bands frontman J Mascis has released a solo album on Sub Pop of folky acoustic songs that will satisfy the biggest Dinosaur Jr. fan while giving J enough room to musically branch out. If that’s not enough the trippy stop-motion video for the single Not Enough will keep your eyeballs popping while your head is nodding. Watch the full video directed and drawn by fellow musician Chad VanGaalen after the jump.
Allan Aubry’s Sadness-Happyness print has a message that I think we can all relate to. The two come hand in hand. Lets all make a point to lean towards the positive side of things and learn and laugh at those sad moments in life.
Noah Sheldon’s well rounded portfolio has a little bit of everything for everyone. My favorite photos are his landscape shots. Although they are images of familiar places, the composition and perspectives make them feel like worlds from a far away galaxy. Noah also has a hilarious series of cat photos wearing human clothes for those of you who need a good laugh during the work week. All of this and more after the jump!
B/D friend Dallas Clayton has been busy touring the states giving away copies of his children books and helping kids dream big. For every copy of a book that Dallas sells he gives one away, spreading the message of staying positive, never giving up, and using your imagination. Check out the tour page of his site for images and stories from his adventures.
Jeff Eisenberg’s ultra detailed drawings are a mix between a bunker, a childhood fort, and a conspiracy theory nuts home in the year 2099.
Rachell Sumpter’s drawings are fragile and delicate looks into a world where tiny figures explore, come together, and celebrate this strange big world we live in.
This video just sorted out where I would spend my next vacation. Watch it and then join me in the private B/D jumbo jet as we head off to Spain, where the Goths, the Romans, and the Moorish left their mark. Where Don Quijote fought against the windmills. And where El Greco, Diego de Velazquez and Francisco de Goya all once lived. Watch the full video after the jump.
Platonov Pavel’s portraits of a figure wearing a ski mask are full of rich psychological mystery and intrigue. They take a basic subject matter and create a complex narrative with just a few elements and well placed use of color.
