Easily my favourite cover from the list: David Bowie: The Next Day, by one of my favourite designers:
People who miss the point on this cover by designer Jonathan Barnbrook are likely reading into it too much. If slapping a boring square on the iconic Heroes cover seems lazy, think about our age of appropriation on Tumblr as well as where every image came from first. Then think about how many cultural icons are left that have been able to make meaningful art in both of those eras.
OMG I want one!
WindFire Designs Circle Tools are made for beautiful circles. Specifically designed for countless uses, they provide elegant and precise utility. Graceful progressions of sizes in curated sets of circles find a balance of scale between the maker, the studio, and the work. Quickly center circles within circles using nested inner and outer perimeters. Use both the inside and the outside edges during design, marking, alignment, and fabrication. Made from low-conduction, hard stainless steel which provides durable guides for blade cutting and leaves heat in the tips of hot cutting instruments for consistent beautiful lines, clean edges and rapid cuts.
This is the most unfortunate way you could photograph the Night Watch.
This is not a very technically perfect photo. The flash is glaring, the composition distorts and crops and skews the subject.
This Rembrandt is shot like it’s leaving a nightclub, caught in the glare of a flash. A desecration of the canonical image.
You know how the Night Watch looks; it’s famous and available in intricate detail and very high resolution online.
This is not a photograph of the Nightwatch…
I really like this work and somehow it completely falls flat on the Tumblrverse. The only notes are from myself reblogging it lol.
Hal Hartley is crowd funding his newest film, and he is about 2/3 there with a week to go. Help make this film — and get some good rewards in return.
I especially like the $10 which gives you any two downloads from his website, including several of his movies. Which if you want to download them would normally be $19,99 a piece! So you’re saving big and helping making this film!
I just regret you cannot pick two rewards, or pick the $10 one twice, for that matter. There are autographed screenplays and unique books and more. Let’s help Hal make this movie!
Me and Hal Hartley in 1997 on the set of “Henry Fool.” In 2006 I reprised my role as Simon Grim in the sequel “Fay Grim.” Now Hal is Kickstartering “Ned Rifle,” the third movie in what he always conceived as a trilogy.
Hal’s a true artist, a personal filmmaker with a real vision. He’s always had to work to raise money. He’s working hard at it now. If you’ve enjoyed “Henry Fool” or any of his films, I urge you to help make this one happen. You can also help just by reposting this. I’m looking forward to putting that jacket back on.
I love Hal Hartley films, ‘trust’ was my absolute favourite film when i was in my 20s. The first reward in this Kickstarter is great value: any 2 downloads from Hal’s website, including much of his films, for $10. So what’s not to participate?

That’s a great infographic
This means that for some things, Google researchers can no longer explain exactly how the system has learned to spot certain objects, because the programming appears to think independently from its creators, and its complex cognitive processes are inscrutable. This “thinking” is within an extremely narrow remit, but it is demonstrably effective and independently verifiable.Surewhatcouldpossiblygowrong If this doesn’t terrify you… Google’s computers OUTWIT their humans • The Register (via iamdanw)
