Very very funny watching this with the German dub on!
Graffiti and street art goes orbital - with the well-known American artist Shepard Fairey being asked to design a logo/patch for an upcoming mission to the International Space Station. What a buzz for a street artist to have artwork in space - brings a whole new meaning to the phrase 'getting up'. He's done a cracking job too, using a nice simple colour pallete that moves away from the traditional blues/reds/whites. Reminds me somewhat of fellow graffiti enthusiast James Powderly getting his art and design projects onto Mars...

Through spending far too many hours stumbling through YouTube i've recently discovered the work of Rob Ager, a film maker and analyst who has uploaded countless videos looking into aspects of popular movies. Often concentrating hidden messages and obscure or alternative meaning, his in-depth analysis of films such as A Clockwork Orange, High Plains Drifter, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Starship Troopers offer insightful theories about aspects of these films that one might never have noticed or considered. He's done LOADS of them and they're all super-interesting, they've certainly made me go back a re-watch some of the films he's looked at from a new perspective. He's also made a few short films - you can find out more about this guy at his website Collative Learning, or via his YouTube channels robag88 and robag555.

Great article here from Todd Burns looking into the legendary Sunday sessions that the Metalheadz camp put on at Hoxton's Blue Note. With contributions from the crew alongside photographs of the sessions themselves, it gives a real insight into the atmosphere and impact of these nights. I really would have loved to have gone to one of these!
