I know, I know...I've been quite negligent on putting up any new mixes as of late..so I'm trying to make it up to you. Here's two summer enders. They all seem a bit mismatched..but so is the weather, so are the politics.

Wild Beasts - Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants. Dir: OneInThree from OneInThree on Vimeo.
Sorry I have been horrible about keeping up posting mixes but I haven't been at home much in the past few weeks and when I have I've been quite busy. I hope some of these video clips will tie you over until the next mix.
About this video: This music video was made by the british studio OneInThree. Apparently they had 9 plus computers working for over a week straight to process the footage in the video. The concept for the video is based on an unfinished Escher lithograph from 1956 which utilizes whats known as the "Droste Effect" (named after a dutch cocoa of the same name whos packaging featured a nurse holding a platter with a package of cocoa which in turn had a nurse holding a package of cocoa...) Anyways the final product is rather impressive. Although relying on a gimmick effect of sorts the usage and technical complexity makes the aesthetic of the effect hold water. Watch it you'll find yourself strangely fixated.

I was going to opt out and post the better resolution version..but I prefer this version which seems to have been dubbed several times. You can ask me why but I'll tell you later.

I was just checking my friend Paolo's blog. He's pretty good about updating with cool stuff. whether or not youre into comics (oddly enough he actually just like drawing them..not necessarily reading them) you should check out Paolo's artwork. Absolutely incredible. If you're into it check out more of his work here Paolo's Blog or at your local comic book store.
