Consoul – Life and Death in 8-Bit

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Mixd7ss83Y&feature=player_embedded&w=500&h=300]
Ein recht schickes After Effects Video von Lasse Gjertsen, welches den Alltag in der 8-Bit Welt wiederspiegelt! Der Hauptcharakter altert und seine Herzen gehen dabei runter und Punkt bekommt er, wenn er arbeiten geht.

Aber lassen wir ihn doch kurz selbst erklären:

I made it in about half a year together with my best friend Trygve Knudsen, who made the 3D-sequences. I made all the 8-bit-shit :) We worked on and off with it from February 2008 and completed it in January 2009. It has been screened at a bunch of film festivals all over the planet, and is originally made for 35mm film with surround sound (kicks in during the 3D-sequences). Therefore it might be perceived as being a bit sloooow, but fuck you and your internet attention span in that case :p

The 8-bit stuff is designed in Photoshop and animated with After Effects. I downloaded emulators for Amiga, Sega, Nintendo and so forth and had to play a shit load of games to look at the graphics and gameplay for inspiration. It was pretty sweet to get paid for that :) The music is composed with FL Studio.

Nunja, ich weiß nicht so recht ob es lustig sein soll, oder ob die Kids das toternst meinen, mit dem was sie hiermachen, aber es riecht mir hier verdammt nach Nerdsalat und nunja.. ach egal.. ich spar mir die Worte. Geniesst diesen Klassiker, nachgespielt von ein paar „Fans“ ;D

Neue Musik von U2 & Jimmy Eat World

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh9ZIG5suCY&feature=player_embedded&w=500&h=300]

Check out two new songs that U2 debuted the other night in Italy at their tour opener, the first show since Bono’s unfortunate back injury. The songs they introduced are called “North Star” & “Glastonbury”, named after the festival.

“North Star” is was a ballad that Bono requested be heard with all the lights in the arena turned off. “Glastonbury” was a funky rocker that will have no problem getting stuck in your head.
