Kakukaku Shikajika is an autobiography of the artist Akiko Hayashi who also does Kuragehime.

This is a fantastic manga to read if you’re ever feeling confused as to what direction your art is going or if you’ve hit a road block and you don’t know what you’re doing with your life.

If you’ve spent your life dedicated to achieving your dream and then you find yourself at a loss of what to do once you’ve hit a high point, what happens? Or you suddenly lose faith in your ability to do anything??

This is a great manga. It’s lovely, personal, and funny. It’s nostalgic if you’ve felt the same way in the past and extremely relatable if you’re going through an art block/uneasy time in life.

染谷
Mad mental mélanges becoming liquid milieus, light, dark, life, and death swirling like a warm sigh in wintery air, minor hues looking major, color popping everywhere like shattered stained glass: 染谷’s work is a magical meditative sermon served up with style.

Madeon - Cut The Kid (LIVE COVER)

keyboard/sax/weird electro-clarinet guy is fucking killing it.

Yes, yes he is. The sound is so fucking alive.

People sometimes ask why Daft Punk created their samples using live instruments on microphones from different eras (e.g. microphones from the 60s, 70s, and 80s) for Random Access Memories. If you can hear the difference between the original and this cover (disregarding the poor quality of the live performance), now you know why.

syntheticpubes: Disillusionment

syntheticpubes:

From an old post in 2009:

After I learned what an Eddie Bauer edition car was (precisely what we didn’t have—tinted power windows, premium sound system, leather everywhere), I began to play a sad little game in my head: each time I saw a car I fancied, I’d whisper or think “I want that in Eddie…

I initially started complex as a personal tumblog where I didn’t need to get into great detail about my life events. When I realized that my life was utterly boring and uneventful (around Tumblr v2), it evolved into sort of a visual and public commonplace book. I find that going back and looking at what inspired me two, three, four+ years ago is far more interesting than a giant wish list of shit that I never really wanted in the first place. My visual commonplace book is an accumulation of thoughts, ideas, and others’ works that make up what I am today and what I can use (creatively speaking) in the future.

"Shing02- MC, Producer, and Director", an interview by Joy Lin

Shingo Annen, aka Shing02, is the Tokyo-born, California-raised MC who rose to prominence in the underground hip-hop movement of the Bay Area in the  mid-90′s.  Many were exposed to his work through his Luv Sic 6-part series with the revered Japanese producer Nujabes, as well as his progressive invention of the Vestax Faderboard.  His continuous delivery of exceptional and diverse work reveals layers upon layers of talent beyond rapping, and into film direction, dedication to activism, and explorative uses of technology and instrumentation in his live sets.

I had just graduated from Cal and started a DJ class when I was introduced to his music. His music instantly sucked me back into the Bay Area music scene that had influenced me incredibly not only musically, but also as a person, and eventually played a big part my career re-direction out of finance and into music. It was an honor to chat with him and dig into his current projects, his activist-driven messages, and advice for aspiring MCs and producers.
