Are You Obsessed With Size?

Then this is exactly what you need: a condom that measures the length. Introduced in Mexico. Perhaps because of the pointy shoes (Las Botas Mas Picudas). (that's what came up in my mind first).

Adolfo Farsari - The Old Japan

"In the 1880s at a time when most Europeans were denied access to the Japanese interior an Italian photographer managed to capture many images of Old Japan. These were then beautifully and realistically hand painted and serve as a remarkable record of a world long since disappeared."

Ai Weiwei Poster

'Love The Future' Free Ai Weiwei.

"I created this poster à la Shepard Fairey’s OBEY Giant poster in order to help raise awareness for Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. His recent arrest and incarceration on 3 April 2011 has spawned an outcry from not only other artists but the international community as a whole. Little information has been released as to his detainment and it is unclear as to when he will be released.

The Chinese text 爱未来, (replacing the omnipotent “OBEY”) translates in English to “Love The Future”, which has been adopted as the watchword, or rallying cry in support of Weiwei’s release because it is very similar to the Chinese spelling of his name 艾未未."

Assassins 'Guilty'

Assassins with Guilty.

This video was an experiment in digitally aliasing a live performance. Based on the visual language that Tim had created, the video was made using both in camera and analog techniques to physically destroy a linear performance. Then together Vince and Tim created a edit that pieced linear time and footage back together in a logical sequence. The end product is a visually stunning fragmented performance by Assassins.

X-Ray Video Of A Drinking Dog

Contrary to published accounts, dogs do not scoop liquids into their mouths with a spoon-shaped cavity that forms in the ventral surface of a backwardly directed tongue tip. As in cats, an aliquot of liquid adheres to the dorsal surface of the tongue tip and is transported into the oral cavity as the tongue is rapidly withdrawn. Video-fluoroscopy recordings indicate that at least three lapping cycles are needed to transport liquid to and through the oral cavity.

Blank City

BLANK CITY tells the long-overdue tale of a disparate crew of renegade filmmakers who emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history. In the late 1970's and mid 80's, when the city was still a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs, these directors crafted daring works that would go on to profoundly influence the development of independent film as we know it today.

Directed by French newcomer Céline Danhier, BLANK CITY weaves together an oral history of the “No Wave Cinema” and “Cinema of Transgression” movements through compelling interviews with the luminaries who began it all. Featured players include acclaimed directors Jim Jarmusch and John Waters, actor-writer-director Steve Buscemi, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, Hip Hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, photographer Richard Kern as well as Amos Poe, James Nares, Eric Mitchell, Susan Seidelman, Beth B, Scott B, Charlie Ahearn and Nick Zedd. Fittingly, the soundtrack includes: Patti Smith, Television, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, The Contortions, The Bush Tetras, Sonic Youth and many more.

Canoe Ballet

Never heard of this 'sports'.

American Freestyle canoeing is the art of paddling a canoe on flat water with perfect control of its movements. The canoe is usually leaned over to the side to help the boat turn sharply and efficiently and paddle strokes are taken on either side of the canoe depending on the individual move. Balance, paddle placement and turn initiation are a few keys to this control. Since the movements seem dance-like, some practice this art timed to music, which is the ultimate in control.

Get Ready For the Fiat 500

Well done video, a bit boring for me, but it's probably a worldwide campaign.

The 2012 FIAT 500 is here. To mark its arrival, a music video was created to show people getting ready to meet their 500 as the 500 gets ready to meet them. The music is Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major, Rv 228: Allegro remixed by an LA-based electronic band.
