This is an actual, real life book that exists in this world.

Part of the Pro Tools session from an episode of Deadliest Catch. Shout out to Bob Bronow for handling this like a champ!
There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted. — Henri Matisse
"They see poetry in what I have done. No. I apply my method, and that is all there is to it." - Georges Seurat
Way to ruin the magic, Seurat!
The Fourth of July…an excuse for morons to cause 18,000 fires, $32 million worth of property damage, and 8,000 visits to the emergency room every year. Oh, did I say morons? I meant PATRIOTS! I hate this holiday.
No joke, as soon as I finished that sentence, I looked out the window and watched my neighbor frantically stomp out a fire in his back yard with his shoe as a few crackles burst up toward his face. USA!!!!!
Someone please articulate what makes Justin Timberlake’s new video art. I keep hearing an either-or fallacy: ‘It’s not porn. It’s art.’ I agree that it’s not porn, but everything that isn’t porn isn’t inherently art. There is a lot of space in between. The simplest creative route was taken with this video: nude women (well-shot and in tasteful form for a music video, certainly), Justin dancing, Timbaland’s presence, and the projection of choice lyrical text. Basically the same shots over and over and over…for seven minutes. To those who say the video is about the beauty of the human form, why aren’t the men nude, as well? Because the video is not that complex. Naked girls in music videos sell. Just because they are photographed well, that does not make a music video art. Speaking of nudity, the emperor has no clothes.
In addition to an amazing photo shoot for my next EP (not sharing yet), writing sessions with Daniel Ford and Rudy Carino for Rihanna, picking up Google Glass from the futuristic utopia that is a Google office, and many various meetings, one of the highlights of last week’s trip to LA (and an inspiring kick in the ass) was an afternoon spent with Dave Pensado.

What if the loudness war in audio was applied to painting? An example from Paul Frindle…
"The gamma represents compression. The lateral motion blur represents sum/difference compression (stuff moves around the image, except for what’s in dead centre). The white out represents limiting for max level. The loss of colour and hue represents the overall EQ to make it seem ‘old’ again, without losing brightness (loudness)."
