Knxwledge's Hud Dreams has been on heavy rotation in the Jux office since it dropped earlier this year. The Stones Throw artist has collaborated with Joey Bada$$, Blu, Iman Omari, and more recently on one of our favorite tracks off Kenrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, "Momma." Today Knxwledge released this welcomingly psychedelic video for the tracks "Flyinglizrds" and "Shuremng," animated by Ruff Mercy (who did this RTJ video) with footage from Ross Harris. Watch and enjoy! Light green, lime green, avocado...

Because I still have the intense memories of seeing the original and always-will-be-the-best "Jurassic Park" in a movie theater, I probably will be a little disappointed by the new installment of the Park legacy that opens this Friday, "Jurassic World." But I will be there regardless. There is a ton of Jurassic stuff on the web right now, and we love this 8-bit, Nintendo vibe'd version of "Jurassic Park" that we watched this morning.

Chinese animator Wong Ping has one of the most wonderfully bizarre imaginations we've encountered. Where his ideas come from we don't know, but we love his animations and always look forward to seeing more. This latest one, called "An Emo Nose," explores his loneliness after his nose tragically decides to leave him. As a result of his nose being gone he loses interest in any kind of social activity and actually starts to enjoy the loneliness as he observes the ugliness of people around him.

Run the Jewels just dropped their latest video, for the track "Early," one of our favorites off the RTJ2 album. The video, created by the animation and design studio Bug & Sluzzy, visualizes the Killer Mike and El-P song in simple yet perfect red, black and white.

We got the pleasure of visiting Titmouse Animation Studio's 9th annual Smashing party this past Saturday. Activities included, you guessed it, smashing TVs, computers, and statues in a large cage using sharp metal objects. Penthouse Pets body-painted by Neck Face and JJ Villard were also in attendance.
