GJT giant animatronic for the NFL wembley game

the girl puppet I post earlier is similar technology, and more elegantly executed. Who ever booked the annoying twat to commentate on this should be sacked, how to ruin an amazing spectacle, stick a radio presenter with a mic in the crowd, that'll do it.

vice mag launches internet TV channel

vice mag has launched its own internet tv station with lots of channels to watch, music, fashion, art and others.

Spike Jonze is the new Creative Director so I expect the articles and content will be challenging such as this one which is about lesbian punk poetry in New York.

richard wilson liverpool intervention

I've seen this before by Richard Wilson with a scheme for Hastings, but it never ceases to amaze me. The craft and accuracy is so deft.
Lot's of concerned from Merseyside but the amount of publicity it has generated is a good thing.
I hate that 'oh it cost a million pounds' argument its the equivalent to my dads bigger than yours.

Facebook over hype or the next google.

So are Facebook and its graph really worth many billions? From an advertiser's point of view, says Rishad Tobaccowala, the boss of Denuo, the new-media unit of Publicis Groupe, an advertising company, Facebook is so far anything but the new Google.

caveman viral

chabal is a one man mountain of viral, mostly because of his tackle of the tournament, against the all blacks. They just can't get enough of the woodchopping Sale Shark icon.

greyworld, well not quite, sound collective

Having worked with greyworld before it's good to see them doing so well. A sound installation artists collective that create audio landscapes in some of the underused and forgotten spaces.

They produced a sound installation in a tunnel at Glastonbury 2000. The year badly drawn boy was on at the new band tent. The tunnel linked the main field site to the Greenpeace field, when people walked through their steps created an audio scape. The tunnel use to be a no go area at night, and they turned it into a place where 2000 people and hour were going through and hanging out there.

Above is one of my favourite projects they have done railings. Each railing was tuned so that when you run a stick along it they played The Girl from Ipanema. The work is subtle but very playful, it makes a grey world that bit brighter.

scrabulous takes off

As people tire of waiting for their friends to respond on facebook they are spending more dwell time on the main site. Traffic is starting too take off and against google search, scrabble and crossword it is on the chart at last. Great example of an old game reinvented online.

stumble crack

I've avoided and been too busy to spend time using stumble and I can see why. It's like that feeling when you lost in a city and you say 'I'm sure it's some where near here, probably just around the corner'. They deal you up some cracking first deals and then your hooked on mediocre flash sites and blogs for good.

I'm rationing usage to 5 mins a day, as when your lost somewhere, if you haven't found where you're going by then you probably never will. ffffound is better to use as it's a quick and visual way to see what has been book marked, but I guess that ruins the surprise of it all.

playmobil online games

playmobil have their online games just right. Lego's site in comparison seems over complicated and no direct route into the online games section. playmobil balance the right amount of strategy and product related content.

bravia bunny ad

i like it but for all the wrong reasons. i think the people being left in makes it feel stop frame(which it is) and also gives you the sense of scale. The jumpy feel is good.

The only problem is that balls can't be topped because it was just so simple, dump a load of balls from a JCB digger and film. Adding complexity to the idea isn't making it any better. I don't like the way the bunnies are processed into boring cubes at the end to represent pixels and the music is crap. Apart from that it's great animation and filming.

Tuesday, October 02, 2007 takes off

I read an article about old games taking off again but online, this is scrabble online. I would have thought hasbro would have led the charge and put an online version out there first. Anyway this site scrabulous is starting to get some serious traffic.
