"CutUp are arguably the most inventive art activists in the UK. The pair rip down billboard ads, cut them into roughly even rectangles and collage them together to form artworks which they then paste back onto billboard spaces. The results are abstract, lifelike and a brilliant reinvention of in-your-face advertising." read more

Hey there,
I've got a couple of [possibly] interesting links for you all.

1. A must for all pop music lovers and time wasters
The Observer Music Monthly quiz: www.abba-to-zappa.com
I don't know if you'll have a good chance of winning an iPod, but the quiz itself is definitely worth having a look at. Mind you, some of the questions are pretty difficult.

2. This link has been around for some time now, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Would be of interest to the politically active, as well as anyone keen on graphics and animation regardless the content. (You'll need QuickTime to watch the clip)

earth from the air [Oct. 16th, 2004|03:08 pm]

Hey everyone,

I notice that little by little people are joining this community, which is great, especially considering the fact that it hasn't been actively advertised in any way. So with this post I'd like to welcome all new members, and encourage you all to participate, comment, post new messages, start discussions etc.

In the meantime, here's an interesting link for you all:

This is a homepage for the project that photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand did for over 10 years traveling all over the world taking pictures of the Earth from above. At the moment these works are exhibited throughout the UK, and I think other countries as well. Some of the photographs come along with commentary and can be viewed in the "gallery" section.

Here's a snippet:

 Entertainment today :)

1. The Pet Shop Boys will unveil their new soundtrack to the 1925 film Battleship Potemkin at a "unique" free concert in London's Trafalgar Square on Sunday.

The pop duo will perform the soundtrack with the Dresden Sinfoniker orchestra to accompany a screening of the film.

2. Not since Battleship Potemkin
Home-made movies are beginning to attract big audiences again
ONCE again Russia is fighting off an invasion from the West. But this time the battle is taking place in the country's cinemas. Until recently, Russia's highest-grossing film was “The Return of the King”, the third instalment in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. But this month that record was broken by a local blockbuster: “Night Watch” has earned around $15m since it opened in mid-July. read more...

I am personally not a fan of the whole "national pride" idea, but I find it pretty embarrassing that with their great traditions of high-quality film-making, they have to imitate Hollywood and proudly produce their own matrixes...
and at the same time the Pet Shop Boys are drawing new interest to the old Russian classic. and I bet a lot of russians will be pretty unhappy about this too...

So... any thoughts, anyone?
