THIS IS FUN! You can create your own beat box! Took me a moment to figure it out, but you drag the icons at the bottom to the character and each one is a different music element. I’m convinced I’m still a kid at heart, because little things like this make me very excited… I think I am going to be emailing this to my little cousins 🙂 Check it out at Incredibox.fr.
This site is a very visual way of watching music videos of your favorite musicians or bands. you can choose the genre at the top and when you hover over the picture it tells you who the artist is. If you choose them it pops up and gives you a playlist of their youtube videos. I love the way this is put together – it kind of gives the feeling that you are looking at albums covers at a distance. Anything put in a grid just makes me SMILE! 🙂 Check it out – uWall.tv
About 2 weeks ago I ordered this shirt from Threadless – a really awesome Muppet shirt of Kermit but when you look closely, you can see ALL the characters he is made out of. I just love it. I can’t even believe it has sold out already, well actually I can because who doesn’t love the Muppets? I think every 80’s baby can agree… The Muppets are LEGENDS. I think if you really want the shirt you can just visit the “bring em back” section and you can vote for it to be re-printed again.
I’m even more excited because a handful of known musicians got together and remade songs from the Muppets and called it The Green Album. I haven’t bought it yet, but its wishlisted. My birthday is in less than 2 months so I will just be patient!! It will also get me pumped for The new Muppet movie coming out this Thanksgiving.
The Green Album
When I was younger CDs were my thing, long before ipods, or before I even knew what an mp3 was my discman went wherever I went. I knew from a young age I wanted my focus to be art – before I was even in high school. I used to think “I want to create CD covers for musicians”. I didn’t even know the word for that kind of art – which I now know as “graphic design” or “digital art”. Most mixed in with photography many musicians have had awesome album art and these are just some of my favorites. What’s your favorite album art?
No Doubt – Return of Saturn
Tool – Laterlus
Three Days Grace – Life Starts Now
Dave Matthews Band – Big Whiskey and the Groo Grux King
