My secret trendsetter hipster weapon is my sister. She emails, calls, and basically tracks me down to share all of the great web stuff out there in the wild wild web. I am taking this foggy Friday morning to share MUST SEE videos that my sister passed along to me.
JDilla “U-Love” Donut video by talented graphic artist, Alan Gonzales. Alan was assigned a project to create a music translation of any song he chose, compiled of elements that best display both a qualitative and quantitative aspect of the song. For this project, he gave himself constraints of only using donuts and Typography to get the message across. This video is CREATIVE and watching it makes me crave for donuts. I spoke with Alan and he shared that he doesn’t have a sweet tooth so his roommates were pretty stoked to help him with this project.
Sophia Grace and Rosie from Essex, England singing Nicki Minaj “Super Bass”. It took Sophie Grace 2 days to memorize this song. Her parents put it on YouTube and Ellen Degeneres brought her to LA to sing on her show. And then Ellen gives her the best surprise.
