I just love Zero 7 and Throw it all away is pretty much my favourite song. I love everything about it, the lyrics, the melody, her voice, it's just perfect and the video is awesome! (wow)
So my weekend advice is: "cash it in and throw it all away".
Os Gemeos are two great artists from São Paulo, already very famous by their amazing work in the graffiti and street art scene. They are twin brothers, (gemeos means twins in Portuguese, thus the name).
If you are in São Paulo, please check out their exhibition Vertigem (Vertigo).
I've been posting here places that are really cool to work and this one is probably my favourite.
Bark Design Architects, a small Australian practice located in Noosa Heads, Queensland, have designed a studio for themselves to work in. It's just awesome!

Using a specially modified camera, Kwabena Slaughter shoots directly onto long rolls of color slide-film. The image fills the entire film-strip, without any frame breaks, looking much like a photographic scroll. The result is really amazing! In the video below Kwabena explains a bit more about his technique.
I've been listening to Vampire Weekend the whole morning and I really like them. Reminds me Born Ruffians another band I love.
Awesome tip from Philip.
Edit. This video was directed by Richard Ayoade, (Moss from It Crowd) I really miss that tv show!
I just came across Kelsey Brookes and I'm totally amazed by his paintings. Brookes was a scientist who spent years tracking viruses for the U.S. government. Now he works and lives in San Diego.
Here you can check an excellent article about his work and his beach side studio, which is awesome!
The Before I die I want to... project was inspired by a combination of factors: the “death” of Polaroid, a psychologist’s tool called safety contracts, and a passion to get people to think about (and act upon) what is really important in their lives through this simple, straight-forward question.
I've been following this awesome project since it started and I don't know why I did not post about it before (my bad!). I sill want to send my picture but I did not manage to buy a Polaroid camera yet.
There is also a book available with 111 of the portraits taken.
