What’s on Lisa Simpson’s bookshelf?

Posted in Animation, Cartoon, Funny with tags , , , , , , , on November 12, 2017 by dc

The internet’s at it’s best when it’s daft and random and the following Instagram account has it’s feet firmly planted in both camps. It answers a question you may never have asked but may be glad you got an answer for anyway, namely – is there a place you can find a visual log of all the books Lisa Simpson has ever bought, read, carried, flicked through, handled or been vaguely associated with somehow on The Simpsons?

Well the answer is yes and the place to head is the Simpsons Library account on Instagram. Pitched simply it’s ‘Lisa’s Bookshelf’ and it’s very tittersome.

One of my favourite rappers, Aesop Rock‘s new album, The Impossible Kid, is released this Friday. To tease it’s release, Aesop is streaming the album in it’s entirety – not only that, the whole thing is accompanied by a massively lo-fi remake of The Shining made with tiny figurines. It’s a unique (no sh*t) and pretty awesome way to go about such promotional shenanigans.

Check out the video and full stream below:

Loving Vincent – new trailer

Here’s the beautiful trailer for upcoming film, Loving Vincent by Breakthru Films.

Loving Vincent is the first fully painted feature film in the world containing a mindboggling 12 oil paintings per second, all done by over 100 painters trained in the same style. It’s directed by Polish painter and director Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman (Oscar winner – Peter and the Wolf).

The aim is to release the film this year but info on the project seems fairly limited. One thing’s for sure, it’s a gorgeous looking trailer…

Lost Lou Reed interview gets animated

Posted in Animation, Music with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2015 by dc

A lost Lou Reed interview from 1987 with music executive Joe Smith has been unearthed and animated as part of American broadcaster, PBS‘ ongoing Blank on Blank series.

The series animates long-forgotten interviews by notable musicians and entertainers, and Lou Reed follows on from other animated interviews with stars like Bette Davis, Michael Jackson, Elliott Smith, B.B. King, Robin Williams, Liberace and many more.

The Lou Reed interview hears him calling The Beatles,’garbage‘ and The Doors,’stupid‘ amongst other things. He also states that The Velvet Underground‘s purpose was to, “elevate the rock & roll song and take it where it hadn’t been taken before.” Check out the animation below (and visit PBSBlank On Blank site here):
