It would have been cooler as a Van

By in found stuff, misc, other folks

The consuming public never gets tired of references to popular culture. Anyone who spent their formative years in the 1980s would get teary eyed for a project like “It would have been cooler as a van”. Designer Brandon Ortwein takes famous vehicles from pop culture past and turns them into vans. He even has a DeLorean van. Imagine that! Link.

The Wisdom of Alex Noriega

By in found stuff, misc, other folks

Alex Noriega is an illustrator from Barcelona. I’ve been following his work for some time now and it’s hard to think of many others who are as funny as he is. Now he’s started a blog where he fuses his humour with his illustration skills. On Stuff No-One Told Me, he posts small pictures with captions that are like zen to the modern urban illustrator. Or everyone else.

ALVAREZ

By in misc, other folks

Found on Society6: ALVAREZ. There’s something about his (or her?) scratchboard-like pictures that’s like a punch to the…well, what? Judging by the scans of the pictures, he’s quite riding the negative space. Can’t wait to see more. ¬°Que viva!

Note on the World Cup Song

By in found stuff, misc

Now that the Football/Soccer World Cup is only one week shy of being history, you’ve probably heard that Shakira Song a million times. The melody is new to the average western ear, but apparently not to most of Africa. I find the original, recorded 1986 by the Golden Sounds, to be fantastic. It’s got a great cassette tape vibe to it, and the vocal harmonies can’t be beat. Also, even though it seems to be made almost entirely with synthesizers, it sounds less artifical than the recent cover.
