[Photos] The Adventures of Mr. Fly

The Adventures of Mr. Fly is a series featuring a dead fly doing people-type things. You know, like skateboarding, building a snow man, and sunbathing. NOT like texting while driving, singing in the shower, and Googling your own name. The photos were posed and shot by photographer Nicholas Hendrickx. I assume Mr. Fly over here died of natural causes. Otherwise I wouldn’t know what to think of Mr. Hendrickx.

[Video] Benga's Timelapse Waveform Music Video

My buddy Paul Mckelvie in the UK just showed me this music video for Benga that he worked on a while back as a runner for the video's directors, Us.

There was a lot of math homework, calculating the number of records per second against the frame rate. It worked out to be that 960 records would be the equivalent of 1 minute and 20 seconds worth of wave form.

Let's Colour is a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with colourful paint, and the results are quite incredible!

[Funny] The Incredible Work Of Photographer Clayton Sotos

[Funny] The Incredible Work Of Photographer Clayton Sotos

In this hilarious spoof on Dell Inspiron, European photographer, Clayton Sotos, begins explaining that his father bought him a camera out of the blue and he’s been taking photos ever since. From there he blabbers on about how using Dell products helps him to communicate his passion or whatever (00:001-02:00). Then… it gets weird. I won’t spoil the joke—you just have to watch the video. (And no, Dell didn’t actually produce it.) Enjoy!
