Did you see Best Buy’s Super Bowl ads last night? If you haven’t, you should give them a watch. They feature the creators of Instagram, Shazam, and Square to name a few. Tastefully done and a joy to see.
I’m not sure why I felt so uncomfortable while watching this video. Perhaps it was due to the somewhat human face of the washing machine. I couldn’t look away as it slowly destroyed itself, at times proud, at times scared. The machines are alive I tell ya.
Former Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman just released his first music video off his band’s upcoming album. His band’s name is Father John Misty and the album is called ‘Fear Fun`. It’s not out till later this year however. Until then enjoy this music video starring Aubrey Plaza (of Parks and Recreation fame).
Today Apple released iBooks 2 with support for textbooks. Along with this announcement they showed off a new video describing why they created support for textbooks and how they went about doing so. The video is typical Apple quality: endearing and uplifting. Overlook the length of the video and let yourself be captivated. This is some stuff that I wish I had growing up.
P.S: I just downloaded a sample textbook to try out. It’s pretty damn cool. You can expand and minimize pages and images just like in the video and everything is so snappy. You have to give it to Apple: when they set out to do one thing they get it done so right.
I was a big fan of Sleigh Bells’ first album. The raw sounds and fast beats let the album become one of my summer favorites, a record I could put on and play from start to finish as I drove around with my windows down.
It just so happens that Sleigh Bells released a trailer for their second album today. It’s a short teaser of the tunes to come, overlaid with some fun footage of their tour and just plain goofing off.
