Stumbling across a piece of Giacomo Carmagnola’s art over on Another Reader, it was a no-brainer to look further into his portfolio (Giacomo’s tumblr). Visually akin to a malfunctioning or broken screen/monitor, Giacomo’s work has a very digital and post-post-post-super-post modern aesthetic ;} . Here are some examples of his evocative distortions:
The stream of stimuli that has flooded our lives due to the internet is dumbfounding; especially when you hold the modern flow in comparison with that of only 20 years ago. Debatably there are many positives and negatives, but it certainly can help to inspire. Here are some miscellaneous images pulled from the unending search for thought provoking visuals and fascinating artifacts of human culture. If you’re digging on these images / theme of Miscellanea, you just might want to […]

Juxtapoz recently had a few great features on Psychedelic posters of the 60’s and 70’s – here is a sampling from the best of the the “Big 5” (Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Victor Moscoso, Wes Wilson, & Rick Griffin) from the hub of it all: San Francisco. FAR OUT
NOICE!!! These tunes are nikkity-nikkity NOISH! and are certain to help you tune-in to a feel-good-frequency for the weekend. BE GOOD (not GOOD behavior) Thanks to Jessenia for sharing this excellent creation recently! Don’t pay attention to anything below the Goat!
Ultra-chromatic & otherworldly, Kate Shaw‘s works are like visions from wildly beautiful hallucinations. Shaw’s statement regarding the conceptual intent of her work is also quite radical – (and I quote from her site) : “I am concurrently exploring the sublime in nature whilst imbuing a sense of toxicity and artificiality in this depiction.

A bit late on the uptake of this film (it came out in September of 2013), but after watching the nude skiing segment last night at the Banff Film festival in SLC, I started looking into Valhalla by Sweetgrass Productions. Holy fuggin’ shiz. You just gotta friggin’ watch these trailers – this flick will certainly go down as one of the very finest in its field. The psychedelic cinematography, music selection, and spiritual storyline is simply sublime. Gawd Deh’yum. GOTTA […]

This segment from Sweetgrass Productions latest ski epic ‘Valhalla’ is one of the more impressive bits of human will-power in the sporting realm you’ll see. BONUS SEGMENT! Below you will find the segment of Jungle skiing that was shot in the rainforest near Mt.Baker in the spring/summer of 2013. WOW.
