This song is from the album Bits by Arman Bohn. You can see more cool videos on his site.

Maybe you already know about the Tiny Cartridge blog, but it’s new to me and if you don’t know about it I think you’ll love it. They claim to be the best Nintendo DS site ever. The description reads “We find interesting Nintendo DS media, import news, retro junk, homebrew previews, & more so you don’t have to!” It was the Super Creepy Pokemon Hack that first brought me over to Tiny Cartridge (via Boing Boing). The writer isn’t sure if the hack is real but explains it in full detail and says that it’s an interesting concept whether it’s real or not. Let me know what you think.

Be sure to scroll through some of the other posts too, because there’s one about a book coming out in August that you might find interesting.

10 minutes later: Hey. I’m back. Just wanted to let you know I pre-ordered the book. It should arrive at the end of the month!

Super Punch & Custom Munnies

Posted: July 21, 2010 in Art, Blogs

I just discovered a blog called Super Punch. You might not be interested in everything he posts, but I’m pretty sure you’ll like most of it. Plus, the guy who writes it has a separate site called Toycutter where he posts pictures of custom vinyl toys–there are some really cool custom munnies over there.

I just discovered Engineer Guy. He makes videos about how things work or why they were made a certain way and talks about what exactly engineers do. The videos are short, informative, and funny, too.

It’s Mr. Potato Head for Warhammer! You can see how the guy made it here. And then check out the whole site. It’s pretty cool.

Banksy left his mark on the wall of an abandoned car factory in Detroit recently, but an art gallery came in and removed the entire wall and put it up in their gallery. You can read the whole story here. So what do you think? Should they have left it there? Where and to whom does the painting belong? Interesting stuff!

The Girl on the Wall

I think you’ll like this short film. It combines graffiti, animation, and love. (It’s in Greek, but there are English subtitles.)
