…FILE Magazine expects the unexpected?

Painter’s Thumb By Nawfal Nur

FILE Magazine is a collection of photographs that treat subjects in unexpected ways, creating new genres with alternate takes, odd angles, unconventional observations, and more, FILE isn’t Kodak, Vogue or ESPN, and it definitely isn’t a photoblog, photo challenge/contest, or group photo album. FILE is, however, a great place to go for inspiration, improvisation, and imagination. If you want to see the world through a different lens, check out what FILE has to offer, but be prepared for a perspective shift.

…It’s Things Thursday: DYH iMix 05.07?

iMix 05.07

The second DYH iMix is here, and this one is for the runners. I’m training for the San Francisco marathon this July, so I need something to listen to while the miles pass by. This is a collection of ten songs that will make you want to get out and get going:

  1. Mase – Breathe, Stretch, Shake – The perfect warm up song.
  2. T.I. – Motivation – For when you need some…motivation.
  3. Black Eyed Peas – Let’s Get Retarted – Don’t worry about how you look, just start runnin’ runnin’.
  4. Maroon 5 – Harder To Breathe – Now it’s starting to hurt.
  5. Lenny Kravitz – Where Are We Runnin’? – And how far are we going to go?
  6. Iron Maiden – Run To The Hills – Now you’ve got a destination.
  7. Visioneers – Runnin’ – Just keep going.
  8. DMX – One More Road To Cross – You’re almost there.
  9. Eminem – Lose Yourself – For when you need that last little kick.
  10. Unk – Walk It Out – A great way to cool down.

Now get going!

…You can be more interesting?

Being interesting is an interesting concept, because it’s not usually something that can easily be pinned down and formulized. Russell Davies put together a list of 10 things you can do to be more interesting, and I must say it’s a pretty interesting list (ok, I’ll stop with the interestings, but it is a very interesting word). Here’s the short version:

  1. Take at least one picture everyday. Post it to Flickr.
  2. Start a blog. Write at least one sentence every week.
  3. Keep a scrapbook
  4. Every week, read a magazine you’ve never read before
  5. Once a month interview someone for 20 minutes, work out how to make them interesting. Podcast it.
  6. Collect something
  7. Once a week sit in a coffee shop or cafe for an hour and listen to other people’s conversations. Take notes. Blog about it. (Carefully)
  8. Every month write 50 words about one piece of visual art, one piece of writing, one piece of music and one piece of film or TV. Do other art forms if you can. Blog about it
  9. Make something
  10. Read

Though it’s probably a pretty time consuming endeavor to add all of these things to your daily/weekly routine, no one ever said being interesting was going to be easy. Even just doing a couple of these though, you’re sure to spark up a few new conversations that you never though possible, and that’s always a good thing. Interesting.

…It’s Website Wednesday: PixelJam?

PixelJam

PixelJam makes all kinds of crazy 8-bit goodness, including games like RatMaze, where you must hunt down various types of tasty cheese as a pixelated mouse, Gamma Bros, where you help the 21hard-working duo of Buzz and Zap get home in an award winning space shooter, and Dino Run, a multiplayer game where you must run, jump and claw your way to survival.

They also host a rather cool collection of 8-bit art, let you download their original 8-bit music, and have a shop if you’d like to sport some 8-bit gear.

Plus, Format Mag has a nice little interview with the creators if you’d like to read about what inspires their pixelated creations.
