Alice: Trippy Song/Video from the rabbit Hole

05.22.2008 @ 1:24 AM in Culture
"Alice" is an electronic song created 90% of audio pieces taken from the movie "Alice in Wonderland." The accompanying video features clever editing from the movie and takes you on an adventure true to the original. Music/video remixes are all well and good, but the impressive part is that the composer is a 19 year old from Australia. Stream/download the song here, watch the video on youtube.
  • Pogo (or as he calls himself on last.fm) put together a few other songs into an EP called "Wonderland." They are all equally good, just no video for them... yet.

GTAIV: NYC and Liberty City Side-by-Side

05.14.2008 @ 12:55 PM in Culture
John and I spent a good portion of our togetherness last weekend killing hookers, stealing cars and doing odd jobs for this fucked in the head Russian dude. Oh, and we also played GTAIV, the latest installment in the Rockstar platinum franchise. Everything is better: physics, npc interactions, mobility choices; but the Sentinal is still the best car to roll in. That being said, the game is a whole lot darker; morality is put in your hands and it can get frustrating at times choosing who lives and dies, who to bowl with and who to let get beat down.... Did I mention the game is frickin incredible to look at? Liberty City is modeled loosely after NYC, Algonquin being Manhatten, Bohan, the Bronx, and so on... but a few choice landmarks have been dropped in the game, and www.goodostuff.com has the flickr set...
So my story starts 2 years ago, March 2006, when I visit New York City. I take a bunch of photographs, do all the touristy things, fall in love with the city and then come home. Flash forward to April 2008, a little game called GTA4 gets released, some of you might have heard it being talked about. It takes place in a kind of pseudo-NYC called Liberty City. I noticed that there were a lot of great similarities between the real life and the virtual city, so I set about putting together a short little photoset of virtual recreations of the real life photos I took. It was fairly easy, because all the buildings counterparts are basically in the same position, and a lot of care and attention has been paid to getting the details in the game really right.
These are awesome shots; it really shows how much work was put into the game, and how intense the realism can be at times. GTAIV almost has this muddy oil painting style effect added to everything... a beautiful blend of art and realism.

Buffafirst – Mishka RattleBear Cap

05.05.2008 @ 1:24 PM in Culture
I'm horribly white, I don't like baggy clothes, I refuse to wear dunks, and you will never see a swoosh anywhere near my body. That being said, I've also never owned a fitted in my life. However, seeing as Angel and I are swapping cultures more and more (he's gone from puerto rican to european, and i'm getting slighty hood in the speech), I took him to New Era on his Birthday (think 20x2+1). We poked around a bit, and Angel finally settled on a grey NY cap. I tried a few on myself, and was suprised to see a few labels i recognized gracing the walls next to the more urban mainstays. One of which was Mishka, a NY label that makes urban wear thats pretty bizarre and pretty rad.  I own a pink Mishka shirt called "crud white," featuring a cracked out zombie snow white ripping the arm off of zombie prince charming. The cap had a familiar figure on it, the cover art death adder from the Megadeth album. I'm no metal fan but the cap was so characteristically me that i had to toss it in with Angels fitted. So here I am below, making my debut as white hood... had so much fun at Marcella's with it; Angel wasn't recognized in his fitted and everyone thought we raided each others closets.

Video: Justice – “Stress”

05.02.2008 @ 9:47 AM in Culture
Here's Justice's newest video for "Stress," brought to you by none other than Kanye West, who decided he might as well join the club instead of trying to combat the Ed Banger Boys. Smart guy.
Directed by  Romain-Gavras
This video is... uh... "stressful." Definitely not for the easily offended, but if you just went out and bought GTA-IV, you are a sick fuck and will love this video, you twisted misanthropic bastard.
Enjoy, and remember, if you see someone in a leather jacket with a yellow cross on the back.. RUN.

Pixel art flows onto the streets

04.25.2008 @ 9:48 AM in Culture
I love me some pixel art. In the old forum days, I was a part of a coalition upgrading smileys to par with what we believed to be a standard. I even started a little pixel art village. Seems like someone in NYC loves pixel art so much he had to share it with the real world. The above "spillage" was seen on 9th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, and unfortunately some peckerheaded fucktard decided it wasn't nice enough and tagged it shortly after.

stopped down to the ArtVoice Best of Buffalo awards. I didn't win anything, and neither did WNYMEdia, but its the one place to bump into those people you can only stand once or twice a year. However congrats should go to my buddy DJ Lil Joe for winning Best Dj for 4 years in a row, and Jimmy "Mamma" Hill for winning Best Male Bartender again.

We Were Centurions

I don't watch BSG, never have, though I promised John I would sit with him one day and watch S 1-4, as long as bj intermissions were included. Anyways, when I came across this cute little CG short, i figured it had some major relevance to the BSG'ers and even though i found it mildy amusing, I'm sure others will find it more endearing.

  • A funny thing happened when I opened Ableton on my laptop a few days after I performed a special b-day set for dekoze aka, “filthy bitch” (it’s a term of endearment) at Footwork a few weeks back…“Program closed before saving, do you want to recover your work?”Hmmmmm….ok! I discovered that I must have hit the red record button at some point, as I managed to capture about 35 minutes of the set….certainly didn’t intend to, becasue I wasn’t going to risk a glitch by overloading the RAM…The nice thing about Ableton Live - it’s real easy pick up where I left off, so to speak, and add to the 35 minutes I had recorded to make a full length mix…so I did…now I can share it with you… Download and enjoy exclusive re-rubs, tweeks, and re-edits as usual…this time I manipulate and re-rub the likes of Jaydee, Justin Timberlake, Primal Scream, Ian Dury, M.I.A., GTO, Peaches, and more…oh…I also give birthday shout outs to filthy with special sample drops lovingly prepared by a radio legend…there’s about five of them…I just had to leave ‘em in… -Xotec

New Bravo show is a Fierce Tranny Hot Mess

03.14.2008 @ 8:39 AM in Culture
Ever since Project Runway, I've had the impressions of Christian Siriano stuck in my head. Now, everything is fierce and everyone is a hot mess. Course, Angel makes it all stick since he talks mostly that way too. Gotta love SNL though. Oh yea, Hulu is now open to the public, so check it out to see some of your favorite shows and clips online for free. [update] Thanks to nfotxn, i found this fierce t-shirt that can be yours for the fierce fierce price of $20. Make it work! prod_fierce.jpg
