Crude The Real Price of Oil

If you don’t want to shout “FUCK CHEVRON & TEXACO” at the end of watching Crude I’ll give you a dollar. I’m disgusted by yet another example of greedy corporate companies taking advantage of the innocent and the poor. Okay I’m done venting. Here is what Crude is about.

Three years in the making, this cinéma-vérité feature from acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) is the epic story of one of the largest and most controversial environmental lawsuits on the planet. The inside story of the infamous “Amazon Chernobyl” case, Crude is a real-life high stakes legal drama, set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures. Presenting a complex situation from multiple viewpoints, the film subverts the conventions of advocacy filmmaking, exploring a complicated situation from all angles while bringing an important story of environmental peril and human suffering into focus.

Two Rabbits

My good buddies at Two Rabbits Studios have recently updated their site and online store.  If you haven’t heard of these fellas, you should put your ears to the ground more often. Though they may be named after a small gentle animal, they are a stampeding herd of buffalos who will trample you with their design and printing skills.  They’ve done concert posters for all of your favorite musicians and probably your mother’s favorites as well. (P.S. They silk screened one of the inserts in Book 2).

Mike Lee

mike_wildTHing001_smMike Lee creates great textural illustrations that feel like fuzzy childhood memories.  The above image is from Nucleus Gallery’s Where The Wild Things Are tribute show (Terrible Yellow Eyes). I know it isn’t Mike’s newest work, but I love his fresh interpretation of the characters.  Mike is currently working as a color key artist for Blue Sky animation studios – which is interesting, considering most of his personal work seems to be black and white.

Awesome Video Of The Day: Pink Terror Hawking

Artist Mike Barzman sent in this video today. The Audio is from one of the worlds greatest minds, Steven Hawking. I’m assuming it’s from a lecture or interview. Either way it makes for an interesting mix. Can’t go wrong with computerized voice and slow motion destruction.

The faces that Rachel Niffenegger paints are seductive.  A couple of her inspirations are “an obsession for gross out humor and imaginings of fantastical death scenes.”  Her combination of a beautiful palette with zombiesque ghost portraiture works.  You could hang one of these over your couch, and when your family visits – they might not even notice you had a screaming skull from hell suspended in the air over them.
