OK Go - High energy rock with incredible videos

Not since Fat Boy Slim's videos have I seen such clever video work as the videos coming out of OK Go, an awesome experimental pop/dance/weird band. Didn't know weird was a genre? Well, know it is. In a good way.

This band has truly harnessed the power of social media to get their music out there; as I am writing this, their new video which was launched yesterday has over 28,000 views. Check it out.

I just downloaded this song at iTunes, along with the old YouTube favorite 'Here It Goes Again', and will be grooving out to it as I clean my very messy office today.

Shot In The Dark - 365 Days of Wil Boucher's Fantastical Photos

Wil has done it again with his new(ish) photoblog Shot In the Dark . A short caveat: I know nothing about photography other than what it evokes in me, and this new series has a feeling of magic to it that was not present in the stark contrasts and fetishistic content of his earlier works.

These primarily architectural photos have a depth of colour and structure that is both engaging and pleasing to the eye; I could imaging his work hanging in a loft apartment in Gastown, or perhaps Old Montreal. It astounds me that these photos remind me so vividly of the painted works of old Impressionists.
