Casey Neistat's Studio Series "The Red Boxes"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 30, 2014
We've visited lots of artists in their studios and some have been incredibly organized, others complete disastrous messes. Personally, we like the idea of being organized but get too much satisfaction out of creating a big, creative mess. Casey Neistat, a film director, producer and creator of some very popular YouTube videos has an organizational system like none we have ever seen. Check it out and maybe be inspired to buy some red boxes.

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.

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.

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.
