Now that Birdman has won the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director, and launched a thousand opinions, praises and criticisms, we found this cool little short video about some of the editing tricks that Alejandro González Iñárritu used in creating his "single edit" style film. A pretty cool look at how precise everything needed to be as you follow the characters around the Broadway playhouse.

"Pandemonio" is animated kaleidoscope of monsters, animals and other strange creatures brought to life by the primitive and franzied pace of Zu's music. Each figure is made by overlapping felt circles. The animation is obtained by moving, resizing and painting every circle without deforming its perfect shape. Have fun!

As we have mentioned in our March 2015 cover story and previews to "20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz," anyone who can make it out to the LAMAG and check out this show, open through April 19, will be blown away but Robert's work, but also the graat artists included.

These female nudes are of friends, acquaintances and volunteers from the internet. I often trawl charity shops and stores that sell cheap kitsch because I sometimes come across objects and trinkets that may lead to ideas for photos. I came across some small mirrors in a £1 shop. They were selling them for £1 for two. I bought six not knowing what I would do with them...

Hey everyone one! Blur is back. That may be big news for some, in our office we are pretty sure one member of the staff was quite happy. Blur's members were busy for the past 12 years, Damon Albarn doing all sorts of projects, one being the highly successful Gorillaz. The last time we saw Blur, they had a Banksy-designed LP called Think Tank. On April 12, 2015, they will release The Magic Whip, and have a lyric-video for the song "Go Out."
