We were lucky enough, along with Slow Culture and the Ace Hotel, to be part of a special art show, "Contemporary Psychedelic," that featured art inspired by the film that opened at the Downtown LA Ace Hotel this week.

The film combines Murakami's trademark anime-inspired visual aesthetic with broader themes of social change and self-empowerment.

Watch: Mark Mothersbaugh has a Wild Imagination and Good Advice

Music // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We are big fans of the mind of Mark Mothersbaugh. From Rugrats to Life Aquatic, and aside from co-founding Devo, the man has composed an absolutely insane amount of music for tv shows and movies and along the way created all kinds of art. In this video for an event at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Mothersbaugh talks about his 3am work habits, gives some sagely advice on technology and art, and rocks out with the weirdest presets on an organ. A nice little watch for sure.
