This band is definitely a personal fave at the moment, they’re fucking ace live, moody, fun and dark as hell. They were our very special guests at the Inexplicable Acts Halloween party this year and their set was truly brutally good times.
Stage in the room The Island built for Apiary Studio’s “Cultural Apacolypse” event.
Band on the stage is a band called “Bad Guys”. They RULE.
The other pic is of the many cameras we suspended with a strobe light behind them at the back of the room. The End is Nigh sign HAS A REMOTE CONTROL. All the colours and lights were colour change-able and the cross on the back wall is made of strobes. FUN TIMES.
We drank our weight in McNuggeteni’s. They are exactly what they sound like.
RZA via Fuse launched a new track, collaboration with Black Keys, the very same magic we heard on the Blakroc album. One of the songs for his upcoming kung-fu film The Man with The Iron Fists, which he co-wrote, directed stars in and musically awesome-ified.
Perusing through Fuse we also came across this enlightening article “RZA’s 10 coolest projects” http://www.fuse.tv/galleries/2012/10/rza-10-coolest-projects. Pretty sure RZA just became our hero. From Hip-Hop Chess Champion, scoring Tarantino, animated samurai shows with Samuel L, philosophy books, System of A Down side project.. it keeps going all the way to futuro ninja film-making. He is epically productive and we like everything he’s ever touched! Lest we forget the Wu..
Design fiction… Experimental Storytelling. Meet KS12. This short “Timeless” features one of our fave artists Rafaël Rozendaal and lots of fun thinking about the current digital era.
“The digital settles in as background. We remember less and query more. Our identity play would be considered schizophrenic in the last century. We have more friends than ever before yet know new frontiers of isolation. The quantification of our experience haunts us in the form of a persistent history. And we are distracted more than we ever knew possible. These circumstances are paradoxically a description of the near future and a diagnosis of the current state of affairs. The truly timeless is redefined – it has transcended that which is classic; it has become that which is never finished.
