Khary Jackson: Slam Poetry

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of watching Khary Jackson perform his poetry. An accomplished performance artist, he held the room captive with his words. Enjoy this performance from the 2009 St Paul Grand Slam.

Inspiration: Guillermo del Toro

Recently, an article in The New Yorker by Daniel Zalewski celebrated the imaginative monster creations of Guillermo del Toro. I remember watching Pan's Labyrinth and being simultaneously horrified and fascinated by his lurid and labyrinthine world, and was thrilled to come across this video exploration of his journals that accompanies the New Yorker article. Enjoy!

Snowdrop Watch 2011!

All signs indicate that Spring is coming to the Northeast! Warm winds and soft rain all day were just enough to coax a bloom out of this early snowdrop.

Inspiration: Supakitch & Koralie


Supakitch and Koralee are two French street artists who have joined together in a powerful artistic partnership inspired by Japanese manga. Due to my not remembering anything from freshman year German class, I'm not exactly sure what/where this video takes place, but I love the energy behind their work, and the chance to watch their process in action.

Inspiration: Kseniya Simonova’s “You Are Always Nearby”

Check out this lovely piece of sand animation as featured on "Ukraine's Got Talent", in which Simonova tells the wrenching story of a young couple separated by the horrors of WWII. Bonus points for her use of Metallica's "Nothing Else Mattters"(recorded and arranged by Apocalyptica) in the final sequence...
