People doing awesome things:

Happy New Year! I thought Id start the new year off with a brand new post about someone making something new out of the old. (that’s a stretch, I just found this was too good not to share it with you guys. Believe me I never think that far ahead.)

This kid from Western Australia takes films (mostly animated features I think) and rearranges the scenes to produce full length songs. Amazing. I love this newest one of Pixar’s “UP”.

from YouTube: “Pogo is an emerging electronic music artist in Perth, Western Australia. He is known for his work recording small sounds from a single film or scene and sequencing them to form a new piece of music.

His most notable track, Alice, a composition of sounds from the Disney film Alice In Wonderland, was received with much success gaining over 4 million views on YouTube as of December 2009. Pogo has since produced tracks from films like Mary Poppins, Harry Potter, The Sword In The Stone, Hook, and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

Interviews with Pogo have been held by ComfortComes, Brains?, PerthQuake,
Kittysneezes and Melanie McBride Online. Pogo can be subscribed to on YouTube, MySpace and Last.fm.”

MORE GAGA!

Okay, Okay, I’m moderately obsessed with Lady Gaga…and I love Beyonce too. They are the two most creative female artists when it comes to videos, and now they areĀ  in a video together! Even though I really love the Bond influence, I wish this video pushed boundaries more, especially after seeing Lady Gaga’s new video. But, I know its Beyonce, and she has a huge mainstream audience that might be scared off if they saw her laying in bed with a dead body or with overly anorexic CGI manipulated dancers. Oh well.

This is a culmination of two of my favorite things.

I have been waiting for this! I need to go to Bergdorfs and check this out for myself, its such an incredible idea. Especially for a Wes Anderson movie, his work is always so meticulous in regards to set design.

Bergdorf’s window design has always been a great event for me. I love merchandising and their design teams always come up with the romantically beautiful displays. Winter is my favorite time of year but the windows at Bergdorfs make it extra memorable.
