I recently stumbled upon The Ridebook from Harley Davidson produced in collaboration with handful of guest curators: Relic, The Selvedge Yard, The Fader, Urbandaddy, Scot Toepfer, and a A Time To Get. The ridebook is made up of short films, music, photography, and short essays all of which speak to the profound impact this iconic brand has had on culture in America and abroad from 1900 up to present day.
“Lemonade: Detroit” is a film about the disarming resilience of a city that can no longer rely on a single industry for its livelihood, and the entrepreneurial strengths of those who are reinventing themselves and their communities.
Instead of sensationalizing blight, “Lemonade, Detroit” will sensationalize hope, told through the intensely personal stories of those who are turning the city into what it will become.
It’s been nearly four years since Amon Tobin has come out with a new album. Fortunately, in the case of Amon Tobin, his albums tend to get better and to grow more experimental with each new project regardless of the space in between them.
Isam, the first of three expected releases set for 2011, appears to be taking a powerful stab at a full audio/visual experience as well as an indescribable list of other interesting marketing tactics and design choices.
I just came across a really well done video shot for Supakitch and Koralie‘s mural project at the Världskultur Museet in Gothenburg, again, tonight, while doing some research and wanted to share. A video that manages to reveal a peek into an artists process without being pesky or overbearing, always manages to capture my attention; not to mention the music is pretty on point.

There’s nothing better than coming across new and unfamiliar music and a fantastic video to compliment it.
Check out more music from Hooray for Earth here.
Listening to Michael Wolff (Wolff Olins) talk about creativity as he makes tea or goes on a walk in the rain, is quite the perfect way to capture his decades of experience in a few short moments; intricacies and all.
I Love Dust‘s Cat & Bird short animation is one of many projects in their portfolio, that exudes their raw and diverse set of creative super powers.

Swedish director / photographer, Johan Renck has a collection of work that captures a certain dark, emotional saturation that I really enjoy. Of the long list of commercials, short films, music videos and photographs, I’m particularly fond of his work with Fever Ray, The Knife and Nike. Check out the rest of his work here, and look for the episode of The Walking Dead that he directed.
I’m not into sports or advertising, at all… but I couldn’t help sharing this swell piece Robert Rodriguez recently did for Nike. Turning the product into a hero is a pretty traditional approach in advertising, but I think that this example does a great job, to both, inspire and engage.
When I started snowboarding in the early 90s, it was still illegal to ride a snowboard on a good portion of the nations mountains and kids doing misty flips were changing the way people looked at the sport. Now, after nearly 20 years and billions of dollars in earned revenue later, the snowboarding industry is still finding ways to turn heads. The most recent thing to catch my attention, is Art of Flight, shot by Brain Farm. Take a minute and watch the trailer, packed with huge tricks, gigantic shots and plenty of adventure.
An interesting 13 minutes or so, of information, you may or may not know, about the irregularly skilled artist, Banksy. It’s a short, but effective piece. Enjoy.
