Favorite photos of 2012, so far.

Here are some of my favorite photos, so far, this year.

Micah Hahn, on Typography

Made this. Love him. Here’s a link to his website.

Cacophony Society

Stemming from San Francisco’s now-defunct ‘Suicide Club‘, The Cacophony Society is “a randomly gathered network of individuals united in the pursuit of experiences beyond the pale of mainstream society through subversion, pranks, art, fringe explorations and meaningless madness.” They claim to be the original impetus for Burning Man, and they also started such important urban […]

I Hate Perfume

From our friends over at WorkBook Project Lab’s Radar series comes the newest episode about New York based perfumer Christopher Brosius, from CB I Hate Perfume. Brosius is someone I’ve been following for awhile, since he left Demeter and started his own shop in 2004. I love this video: Watch the episode by clicking here.

15 inches in Detroit

I ‘inchvested’, about a year ago, in Jerry Paffendorf‘s Loveland project in Detroit.

Send Camille to film school with IndieGoGo

Crowdsourced funding campaign: The Yes Lab for Creative Activism

I love The Yes Men, “a genderless, loose-knit association of some 300 impostors worldwide who agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce. Impersonating big-time criminals in order to publicly humiliate them, our targets are leaders and big corporations who put profits ahead of everything else.” With the recent BP oil spill — quite […]

‘Unplug’, now in blog and online video form

Confirming my opinion that the next big online trend will be to turn the power switch to the off position, I bring you ‘Yelp (With Apologies to Allen Ginsberg)’ from filmmaker Tiffany Shlain (and everyone’s favorite cranky editor, Dalan McNabola). This was made in support of Reboot‘s National Day of Unplugging: 24 hours of turning […]

Film Festival Secrets: PDF guide to Film Fests (free!)

OK my friend and colleague on the fest circuit – Mr. Chris Holland – wrote a guide to film festivals. Like a proper book. If you’re an indie filmmaker and you’ve asked me for advice in the last year, you need to read this. Here’s the info: Film Festival Secrets: Learn the tricks of the […]
