These ‘music videos without music’ youtube videos are both entertaining and impressive (best combo). They strip out the audio and replace it with their own atmospheric audio, words, footsteps etc. Basically what sound designers and their teams do. This one for Happy is especially good/funny. I like the Sinead O’Connor ‘nothing compares to you’ camero thrown in there

cybermurph said: Thank you for your continuing awesomeness and putting up with the daily deluge of questions. So... here's a question: You often give the advice 'write honestly'. What, precisely, does that mean?

brianmichaelbendis:

It means write something that you would actually want to read

Write something that means something to you personally

Write something that makes you a better person for having done it

Write something that makes you happy

 and if you can do all of those things at once… you’re having a very good day.

 but…DON’T WRITE something that you think will make you successful or famous are popular. it’s a complete waste of time as it can’t really be done and it’s the shallowest thing you can do as a creative person

Spotted in Brooklyn in front of a noodle shop. It was a day after Batman day, but it still counts.

Edward Hopper was born today in 1882. What do you imagine the usher in this painting is thinking? [Edward Hopper. New York Movie. 1939.]

Still one of the best Hopper paintings and my fave.

Superman (1941) The Mad Scientist

When I was a child I had a VHS tape of all the Superman shorts by Fliesher Studios. I wore that tape out. I still think they’re brilliant.

From Wikipedia:

"Superman became the most successful cartoon in the late period of the studio. Its ultra-realistic drawing, stylish Art Deco look and magnificently intricate scoring made the Superman pilot the high-water mark of the studio’s sophisticated output."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Fleischer

Reminds me of the pioneering sci-fi Metropolis as well as the 90’s Batman the Animated Series.

I guess this was back when superman jumped rather than flew. And I guess punching electricity/lasers made sense in the 40’s.

First Starbucks in Williamsburg. Opening soon. Seems so weird to me, but I guess it shouldn’t surprise anybody.
