August Emissions

Sharpworld, an often incredible set of video entries. This gained my attention from Coudal, but for including Oscar Fischinger, Len Lye and many other early animation work links on YouTube.

Saw RadioHead live at Meadowbank, Edinburgh. Amazing, although the visuals were a bit duff. I have to say that Johnny Greenwood is god, and whoever the drummer is (OK, I’m a fan but not that much) is one of the best drummers I’ve ever seen. Every song has a unique and memorable rhythm within 4/4 (mainly) which is even more of a hook than the melody. Brilliant. Even better was the walk home, where London road (massive main artery into the city centre) was closed down for the thousands of people to get home. Cars, buses, stranded in a sea of people for an hour. Beck did the warmup and had a hilarious puppet video which had clearly been shot and cut that day for Edinburgh.

Barnes & Noble shareholder conference call transcript. Interesting if you find it so, but a weather vane on retail, mainly in the US.

The Ted video / audio archive. Now would be a good time to go through these. “Each year, TED hosts some of the world’s most fascinating people: Trusted voices and convention-breaking mavericks, icons and geniuses. For best effect, plan to listen to at least three, start to finish. They have a cumulative effect…”

Is it right to use MySpace commercially?. Surely it just goes with the territory?

JWT’s coolhunting videos, by month. I guess these could get a little tiring. And what a shame YouTube doesn’t display trackbacks.

This is a link to the Bravia site I’ve been telling a few people about when it comes to the Bonfire Of The Brands. When combined with YouTube versions of the same it begins to get a nice texture.

Phenomenal parisian type blog.

The Times adds very little to the debate on Google’s decision to make downloads of public domain books freely available.

When FlavourPill product placed a new beer at the launch party of the long tail, I don’t think Chris Anderson was very happy about it.

Along with everyone else, I’m linking to the best 10 presentations ever, apparently. Have to say that I don’t agree with the Mac release, heretically.

Medialoper rails at Penguin (US) getting online marketing a bit wrong. And on how a spring release may have saved SOAP. Maybe a paid for torrent maight have helped? Or a better film?

NYT on Pandora and the new tastemakers.
