Lissie Under the Covers

When up-and-coming LA singer/songwriter Lissie puts her considerable chops to a song she straight kills it (her immacualte backing band doesn’t hurt, either). Here’s a trio of covers: Kid Cudi’s ‘Pursuit of Happiness’, Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and GaGa’s ubiquitously covered ‘Bad Romance’. She doesn’t just cover each track, she imbues them with raw, unadulterated […]

Kruzifix

No matter your faith, or lack thereof, you can’t deny that religious iconography is beautiful on an artistic level.

Her famed photography has given her legendary status when it comes to street art and the culture that comes along with it. In her latest book, Name Tagging, Cooper takes a mundane nametag sticker that was once used primarily in the […]

The Special Relationship

Care for a spot of Dizzee Rascal with that tie, gov’nor? Now that the passions from our World Cup grinder are past us, I feel ok mending diplomatic fences with the Old Country and posting this vid of Dizzee Rascal spittin’ lines over a remix of Tears for Fears classic ‘Shout’, all in the service […]

Light Warfare

Light Warfare as in “a war with lights,” not “just a little bit of war” – there’s no such thing. Making the rounds on the interwebs this week is a video by Freddie Wong aka freddiew, featuring a one-minute stop motion, action-packed video, showing what can be done using the photographic technique of “light painting” or long exposure […]
