Watch: Marilyn Myller by Mikey Please

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 29, 2014
A year in the making, the full six minute stopmotion short features the voice of Josie Long, one zillion hand carved tiny things, literally tens of carved foam puppets, two eye fulls of in-camera, long-exposure light trickery and a pair of tiny dolphins, smooching. It's fantastic. Watch it.

Madlib Invasion: Madlib Lecture in Sao Paulo, 2002

Music // Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Back in 2002, before Madvillainy, before Champion Sound, before the first volumes of Beat Konducta, Madlib travelled to Sao Paolo where he gave a shy but insightful and inspirational lecture at Red Bull Music Academy. In this session he reveals the secrets of his choice equipment, a $300 sampler. He says, "Anyone could do it. You just gotta use your brain." We say, "That's some brain."

No Fuckhead you are not a Storyteller

Design // Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Austrian designer Stefan Sagmeister, creator of the firm Sagmeister & Walsh, talks about the transformation of the term storyteller in to a meaningless buzzword. “Story-teller” has been swept in to the lexicon of trendy art-speak, which bears many similarities to corporate jargon, in that it is a way to say something that sounds good without having to think too critically about it. 

Sam Falls Pixel Crunches EFG's Singing Bridges

Music // Monday, July 28, 2014
Sam Falls’ video for EFG’s “Singing Bridges” delivers masterfully deconstructed slices of sewn together Spaghetti Westerns while psych-rockers Imaad Wasif (vocals/guitar), Josh Garza (drums) and Tom Biller (bass) channel classics of their own: pristine echoes of Bowie, The Cure, Blue Cheer and Jesus & Mary Chain, all woven meticulously into the fuzzed-out track. For the world's dystopian love songs, the sounds of EFG, coupled with Falls’ manipulation of iconic, ‘deinterlaced’ analog films, does not disappoint. So adjust your speakers accordingly and watch the Technicolor trip to the badlands here.

Ice cream is tasty, sweet, decadent, and delightful, but unfortunately it melts.

Perfectly paired with Bobby Vinton’s “Mr. Lonely”, this time lapse is bound to bring you back to your childhood and chasing after the ice cream man.

The Creative Class: Damon Albarn

Music // Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Earlier this week we posted a video with internationally renowned designer Stefan Sagmeister, part of an ongoing series by WeTransfer called "The Creative Class." We've been enjoying the well-done series, especially this one, with a Juxtapoz favorite Gorillaz co-founder and Blur frontman Damon Albarn...

The Creative Class: Stefan Sagmeister

Design // Monday, July 14, 2014
Instead of some flashy video interview with some overarching complex concept, you just want the goods. And this video with internationally renowned designer Stefan Sagmeister of Sagmeister & Walsh is just those goods: an artist talking his craft, showing you his studio, give you a little morning inspiration. And the fact that WeTransfer is producing this Creative Class series is a really good, smart idea.
