Slagsmålsklubben – Snälla TV PLZ

Slagsmålsklubben definitly was the craziest band we ever had on stage…

Compared to their live performance in 2008 their new video almost seems adult!

Descriptive Camera

Would love to see Matt Richardson’s ‘Descriptive Camera’ being one of this year’s ‘Open Squares‘:

“The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, this prototype outputs a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of parsable metadata about photos such as the camera’s settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don’t output any information about the content of the photo. The Descriptive Camera only outputs the metadata about the content.”

And this are some exapmles of motives – and the camera’s interpretation:

Breaking news from The xx:

“We have started recording our second album! We have also started this blog where we will post our inspirations + pictures + favourite songs. We hope you enjoy it! Lots of Love, The xx”

Beautiful stuff – worth to keep an eye on:

And even the mentioned “inspirations” and “favourite songs” are pretty interesting and whet the appetite for the upcoming second album:
