sesame street

some of the research into some new work related to sensory overload has actually lead me back to sesame street.

here are some beautiful videos from their youtube channel. this is what the internet is for – able to be nostalgic and also pass on these great learning/singing/watching tools for the kids.

architecture love fest!!

how awesome is this cheesy 80s rap edu-vid on architecture!! i’m in love!! (thanks to design tavern for this one..)

“1.2.3! When you look at a building reaching up to the sky there’s a lot more to building it than meets the eye!
ITS AR!..CHITECTURE! ITS ARCHITECTURE!”

i’d even go so far as to say it was better than the hadron collider rap kickin’ around prior to the start of this parallel universe…

BTW, if you’re into big deals, like the end of the known universe and architecture competitions, the shortlist for the melbourne uni architecture faculty competition has been posted.

and there was all this talk of zaha hadid… pfft!

some interesting finalists. and a few same-old-same-olds.
i’m cheerin’ for DS+R.

monkey dust

i’m not really one to re-post videos on this blog, but i just had to post this one.

tonight i was idling in abc2 and discovered monkey dust. the cool kids have probably been watching this nutty business for ages, but i’m just a newby! it’s fantastic and in the same vein as drawn together and seven periods with mr gormsby series. super dark and super cheeky.
