Astronaut Colour

††† (Crosses) Release Teaser For “EP ††”

The first EP from earlier this summer is one of my most listened to things in the last 6 months so I'm really looking forward to this new EP which if its anything like the first EP will be released this week for free.  Lets hope so the sample of music sounds amazing, something a little different for chino to put vocals over.

Best of the Web 2011

A compilation with some amazing HD footage.  I don't understand what some of this stuff is but together it is pretty damn fantastic.


Hope everyone had a good Christmas.

Skeleton Astronaut

Finished the linework forthe body, now for everything else.

Prometheus Trailer

Ridley Scott returns to the Aliens universe after over 30 years to direct a prequel to the original.  It will not feature the alien but something that the Xenomorph evolved from, a new alien to try our existance to their existance.  Really bizzare trailer and very intenseand frightning looking.  I will be looking forward to this a lot.

Islands: This is Not a Song

It didn't take Nick Thorburn very long to release a new album with Islands, having just finished touring with Mister Heavenly.  This song is really slow and dark for Islands but the band have sounded different one each of the three previous albums.  The new "This is Not a Song" is from the album A Sleep & A Forgetting and it comes out on Feb. 14, 2012.

Wrath of the Titans Trailer

I never saw the first movie after reading a few bad reviews but up until that point I was looking forward to a story of the Gods.  If they have a decent story this will be an amazing movie judging from this trailer.  It looks like it will be epic and the creature design is awesome so hopefully there is a good story to go with the amazing visuals.

Ron Paul on Jay Leno

This is a good interview with Leno and he is a lot more candid then in the debates.  It is an excellent summary of his campaign and ideals and couldn't have come at a better time as he is leading or a close two in the polls in Iowa.  Below is a commercial and highlights from the last debate.

Fail Compilation 2011

Year end lists and compilations like this make me like this time of year even more. After watching this I watched the best of 2010 and its amazing how many people try doing the same stupid things.

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

This looks absolutely insane. Bane is going to start a class war.

Early Green Goblin Make-up Test

This looks a hell of a lot better then what they ended up going with for the last set of Spider-man movies. Looks pretty close to how he should look.

Batman Back in China to visit Chen Guangcheng

Here is an article by CNN with more background on Chen Guangcheng and a video people telling of some of the people that have gone missing after trying to visit Chen Guangcheng.   This video Chen Guangcheng and his wife released while under house arrest that has brought attention from around the world to the story of this man and the constant Human Rights violations that occur under Chinese Government oppression. Christian Bale heard of this man and his story while filming The Flowers of War, which has been selected as the Chinese entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at this years Academy Awards. The story look to deal with the same sort of human suffering and oppression while the Japanese invaded China in 1937.

Beck remixes Feist

How Come You Never Go There (Beck Remix) by Feist

Sleigh Bells new single Born to Lose

Tis the season...for Sleigh Bells.  Sounds loud like their first album but this track has a lot more layers to the sound and is not quite as loud.  This sounds like it should be a good thing because it still sounds like the same band that has gone through a few years of evolution.

Broke for Free

I don't know anything about this DJ(s?) except that there is this awesome song...

this free remix album...

and a whole lot of remixes and music on their Soundcloud page.  I haven't listened toall of this music yet but I've liked all the music that I have listened to so far.

Skateboarding in Japan

A minimalistic, 80s retro/futuristic skateboarding style that could only come out of Japan.  The music fits the strange, wonky tricks.

?uestlove: Going into way too much detail

Worked on this for another 4 or 5 hours and completed the right side of ?uests head.  I quickly added some colour so you can see the detail of this sucker.  I will hopefully be able to go over the face one last time tomorrow night and then the portrait will be done and I will post it.  Then I have to design the background which im looking forward too because I learned some new tricks on photoshop that I will mess around with.  Last night the Roots performed a few songs off their new album as well as a skit with Fallon about the albums recording session.

Going overboard on the detail on this one for sure but it will be worth it im sure.  I think I will take a break on this one and sketch a few different things out for the next few days.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack

Once again Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are colaborating with director David Fincher on his newest movie, an adapation of the Swedish crime noir The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  The duo previously worked with Fincher on The Social Network which they won a best original score Oscar.  The soundtrack for this movie contains 3 hours of music and will be available in Mp3, deluxe CD, and a deluxe 6 LP vinyl box.  If you click on the album cover below it will take you to Null Corporation Records site where you can download a free 6 track album sampler.  Sounds like it will be a very haunting and dark set.

Here is a stream of the first track of the album, a cover of the Led Zeppelin classic Immigrant Song featuring Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs taking over vocal duties.
