Shelly the Lobster

A sweet little animated film about a lobster who wants to make music, by Johnny Kelly at Nexus, he of the fantastic 'Procrastination' film which I saw at the Royal Academy of Arts graduation show a year or so ago.

Baptazia

What do you get when you mix a bit of extreme Baptist church craziness with some good old hardcore drum 'n bass? Baptazia of course...

I dig this dance with a digger

This is pretty amazing. He makes it look so graceful and undangerous. How long before we see this in an ad?! For some random car brand, with a piffy line like - 'man and machine, together in harmony'...

Monday Blues
















This made me smile. Finally. I don't know what it is about today, but it just hasn't got going at all. It's bleak outside, the leaves have all fallen off the tree outside my window, projects have been cancelled and I literally have no energy to do anything. Hey ho, if you're having a similar day, let this picture be a turning point. Or not, just write the day off... sod it.

The Super Genitari

When I was a kid I'd have given my right leg for this 'one console plays all'.

Friday Happy Tea

Nagi Noda Tribute

So sad. The ridiculously talented young Japanese director Nagi Noda passed away last month. She was a director I would have loved to work with, indeed we tried to once for Nintendo but she couldn't do it. This news actually hit me quite hard, as I've been avidly following her work since seeing her music video for Yuki's 'Sentimental Journey'.

This obviously 'inspired' Mother's great Coke spot.

Although so young, she was just 35, the quantity and quality of the work she'd created was quite incredible. A small selection of her magnificence:

Mariko Takahashi's Fitness Video for Being Appraised as an "Ex-fat Girl".












The half-panda-half-something-else 'HanPandas'.
















The incredible 'Hair Hats'.













And this 'flower creature thing'.




















And this. Wow. Goodbye Nagi.
