Music Videos For Airports

I travelled again last week, and although I wasn’t stuck on the tarmac for 4.5 hours this time, I did have a cancelled flight and several hours delay.  Brian Eno’s music needs an update.  Life in airports has changed.  It does feel like a bit like this great video though.  Somehow I found the ending quite sad.  

There’s also a good little interview with Cornelius at the Mangobot blog.

Art From Waste: Chris Jordan



I stumbled upon Chris Jordan’s work last year and sent it around to friends.  I just went back to his site and was completely blown away again.  Running The Numbers, An American Self-Portrait is the work.  It “looks at contemporary American culture through the asustere lens of statistics.  Each impage protrays a specific quantity of something.  Statistics canfeel abstract and aneshtetizing, making it difficult to connect with and mke meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month.”

… that I love & that I am inspired by

These are crazy times.  There is so much out there, so much that is available to us.  Yet somehow it seems harder to find.  Maybe there really is too much and we need some kind of filter.  Or maybe its that its really hard to be heard above the din.  So much money and effort is spent trying to make us care about things that we shouldn’t.  We need the amateurs to speak up, those that do it out of love and true passion.  

These Are Those Things is dedicated to the things that brighten our day: the good work, the original work, the work that strives and does not settle.  The work that is not afraid to fail and not afraid to reach, to move into uncharted terrain.  These are those things that make me want to keep working, to keep creating, to keep sharing.  
Thanks for taking a look.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
