I’ve never drawn a skull before. How’d I do?
DAFT PUNK – GET LUCKY
The first track from Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories is upon us: Get Lucky, featuring Pharrell.
Call it a return to form.
And listen, keep the video in focus, because at 2m21s, the figures in that ‘still image’ become animated, groovin’ away.
There’s a new trailer in town, this time revealing new scenes from Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and, more importantly, a preview of its tunes.
Fans of Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet know the man can collect a sharp soundtrack. Beyoncé, André 3000, Florence and the Machine. Oh and Lana Del Rey, but whatever.
In all, between the sound and the sight, I don’t know which I’m looking forward to more.

The series that never happened but absolutely should have, and totally still could.
Incidentally, the original;
This is wild. Indonesian revhead and designer Eric Caprin has rolled out a new concept that transforms a Japanese Sanki bike into a would-be BRE Datsun racer.
Inspired by the Brock Racing Enterprises track cars of the 70s, Caprin’s frame wears the same blue, white and red colourway worn by the BRE Datsun 510 coupes.
There’s BRE Datsun graphics on the down tube, a classic Datsun graphic on the top tube and even a Datsun head badge.
Perhaps even more insane is the pair of custom-made wheels emblazoned with the logo of the Work Wheels brand.
CASIS x Shepard Fairey. There’s a pairing I never thought I’d see.
Prolific designer and street artist Shepard Fairey – famous for his ‘OBEY’ work and Barack Obama’s ‘Hope’ posters – has unveiled his official design for the patch of a new project on the International Space Station.
The project, managed by Centre for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), is called ARK1, or Advancing Research Knowledge 1.
The patch will be worn by space workers (astronauts, cosmonauts, what-have-you) involved with the project, which will run from September this year, through to March 2014.
“It’s a really special thing. I’m just flattered and honored that I could create something that becomes just a small symbol of how things can move forward. The excitement of the unknown. To be part of that, is really a cool thing,” Fairey said of the project.
“I just peed a little, seeing the work of a favourite artist paired with the sheer bonkers awesomeness of space science,” Doshio said.

This is intense. Get me that water-powered teleportation fuse now.
Biting Elbows’ awesome sequel to the crazy Insane Office Escape clip release in 2011.
