Something to listen to this Monday morning: Dave Matthews Band. Yeah, that staple of my own college musical experience. I haven't really followed the band since the mid 2000s but I know they still release new music and go on crazy tours just about every year. Maybe I should go see them one year. Would be fun to listen to even longer versions of their already-lengthy tracks.
I had no idea Dyson made desk lamps. The CSYS is the overall name for what is currently two different lighting systems offered by Dyson. The products are differentiated by their name and purpose -- CSYS Floor for a room lamp and CSYS desk for a desk lamp.
The CSYS is designed by Jake Dyson and is inspired by drafting boards and elevators. The mechanisms in place that allow the light to swing, move, and elevate are quite smooth on video. The 3-axis glide movements are unlike anything I've seen in a desk lamp.
Unfortunately, these desk lamps don't come cheap. Like all Dyson products, there's a high premium to pay for stylish design. In this case, that amounts to paying upwards of $650 for one of these desk lamps.
This Frame By Frame episode describes how Aaron Sims of Aaron Sims Creative created some of the look and feel of Stranger Things thanks to inspiration from a variety of sources including real animals, an artist named Zdzislaw Beksinski, and a ton of borrowed themes from old Stephen King movies.
If you haven't seen Stranger Things yet, PLEASE DO SO NOW. It is just wonderful. :)
This might be my favorite video in a while. HORN PLEASE is a documentary by Shantanu Suman that documents the colorful art adorning many trucks in India. I have never really heard about this subculture until now but it reminds me of a low-tech version of Japan's own truck culture known as Dekotora. LOVE THIS TO DEATH!
I know somebody that would love coming here!!!!!!! It's not me, but I'd be happy to take them just so I could take a bunch of weird ass photos. Anyway, the giggles in this episode are kind of funny. Made me chuckle.
