I admit it– the subject of this post is ripped directly from Kanye West’s blog. I hadn’t read it before last night, and I’m really quite impressed with it– there’s tons of good stuff. It’s broken down by category, and while I’d known he was into fashion (and music, of course), I was delighted to find all the cool art and design he was posting. There’s some controversy as to whether or not West actually writes his own blog, but I don’t really care. As long as there’s interesting content, they’ve got my vote.
Anyway, the “cool thing” that I wanted to share was this video, which is apparently a “chromatherapy” art installation called “Patachromo,” by the French artist SuperBien:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Chromatherapy is controversial itself, as it’s widely regarded as pseudoscience. There are arguments for the power of color on the psyche and body, but the detractors’ main point is this: chromatherapy is nothing more than flashing colored lights on someone. That may be, but I’d like it. If there were a series of colored lights above my bed that pulsed above me as I fell asleep, I bet I’d be more relaxed. You never know! If nothing else, it makes for a beautiful installation piece. If anyone can find this as a screen saver, let me know.
For the music today, I have three more from Norwegian Recycling.
The first track features “I’m Yours” again, but this time with an A vs. B structure to the song, against Akon.
I couldn’t get this second track out of my head all day, so I’ll share it with you. It has a really fun, kind of dorky attitude that fits the vocals perfectly.
My mouth literally fell open when I first heard this final track. It’s just a very basic A vs. B mash-up, but the instrumental track is a part of my very soul. Bonus points to whoever figures out what it is first (Roxy and Gabe don’t count).
PS– Whoever reached this site by searching for “how to draw a gorilla in a battle form,” I hope you found what you were looking for. Chances are that you didn’t, but I’ll make sure to include something along those lines in the future.
