VLC Video Player

VLC Video Player

Recently, Lifehacker asked its readers to recommend their favorite video player. Not surprisingly, all of the resulting players are free. All of them run on Windows, and two of them run on Macs. I’ve been using VLC on both platforms for years. With all the different platforms, media, and codecs out there, it’s nice to know that one piece of software will be able to play any video file.

I’m hypnotized by Abbey Ryan’s videos documenting how she paints one painting every day and then sells it on eBay. Not a terrible way to make a living. Here’s a link to Abbbey’s YouTube video of her painting a strawberry and blueberries.

Say Anything

November 7, 2006 at 3:38 pm

I downloaded Say Anything’s album two weeks ago and I haven’t stopped listening since. This is some of the most original, aggressive, poetic music I’ve heard in years. The album “… is a real boy” is full of youthful angst and frustration. The emotions range from hysterical violence to complete self-concious analysis. Do yourself a favor and listen to the album in full. I’ve become an instant fan.

Inspiring Artist: Judith Fegerl

August 24, 2006 at 12:09 pm

Browse through Judith Fegerl’s work and you will find a subtle interaction with her viewer and the human element. Not only are her installations beautiful, simple, and elegant – but alive and sensual on their own. I particularly love her Tension Object, a ceramic sphere covered in real human hair that pulses to the beat of 120,000 volts of electricity.
