    MUSIC NATION - SOAP THE STAMPS from Jim Demuth on Vimeo.

    This documentary from filmmaker Jim Deluth explores the 80's UK Hardcore and DIY scene. The film examines the importance of the DIY underground network of tape trading, zines and DIY shows and even talks about the major role John Peel played in the explosion of this movement. If you're into music history (or just music in general) then this is a great addition to your bank of knowledge.

    Interesting new spot for SportsCenter featuring the boys from Metallica. What happened to Kurt Hammet's hair? It's all white. Yikes!

  • Iconic Houses

    Iconic Houses from Matteo Muci on Vimeo.

    Italian product and graphic designer, Matteo Muci, has created this interesting animated romp through some of the most iconic houses ever built. His vector creations of such greats as the Rietveld Schröder House, The Farnsworth House and Falling Water are both fun and extremely accurate in their detail. The video weighs in at about two minutes, but he covers several of the greats during that time. We'd love to see an expanded edition of this or one that covers a wider spectrum of great architecture throughout history.

  • Gordon Ramsey x AT&T

    It's weird to see Gordon Ramsey doing a spot for AT&T. We're just glad he didn't assume his American persona and scream and yell throughout the commercial. We miss the Gordon in the English version of Kitchen Nightmares. He was so much more mellow back then.

    It's a Great Time to Be A UX Designer by Jared M. Spool – An Event Apart Austin from Jeffrey Zeldman on Vimeo.

    Jared Spool, the founder of San Francisco's User Interface Engineering, is just a great speaker. We've seen a couple of his presentations and his wit, intellect and deep thinking in the field of UX are amazing. Several sessions from the annual mega-conference, An Event Apart, just went live and this was one of the ones that stood out to us from last year's sessions in Austin. If you're of the UX persuasion, then you'll want to get on your watch list.
