Apparently Saatchi & Saatchi have teamed up with Vimeo for some sort of video project for Moby’s new album. I’m short on details for the project and time to look them up, so just enjoy the video (found via Phase02).
I just picked up a pair of these futuristic Nike Lunarglides, and they’re pretty fast.
Anyways, I normally listen to music when I go running, and I’m pretty sure that this Blaze Tripp remix of 22nd Century by Kelis is going to make for a great soundtrack.
In the comment section of io9 a few months ago, someone suggested that t-shirts be made depicting a quote attributed to George Orwell:
“Back in the 1900s, it was a wonderful experience for a boy to discover. There you were, in a world of pedants, clergymen and golfers…and here was this wonderful man who could tell you about the inhabitants of the sea, and who knew that the future was not going to be what respectable people imagined.“
Its a wonderful quote, and I completely agree with the commenter that shirts should be made, so I’m offering my design above, paraphrased from that quote (clicking on the image will give you the layered, PSD file should you wish to use it - I can’t remember where I got the template).
I’m certainly not a graphic designer, so if you make your own version, let me know in the comments or via email. It’ll probably be better than what I’ve come up with.
Keep the sci-fi dream alive, my friends…and while you’re at it, grok these future tracks:

I think that Aliens: Salvation has one of the best comic book covers of all time. At first glimpse, it looks like it might be a traditional piece of Japanese art: a samurai kneels with his sword in front of him while behind him a dragon dances. Take a closer look and you’ll see that the sword is actual a huge cannon, the dragon behind him an Alien. Yeah, I capitlized Alien there because its probably one of the most famous aliens: the chest-bursting, acid-blood aliens from the the movies with Sigourney Weaver (Alien: Ressurection was my favorite).
Since pretty much every encounter with these perfect monsters results in death, I thought I’d accompany this image with some tracks that Trash Yourself threw at me a couple of weeks ago:
They’re Trash Yourself on Myspace.
After reading an interview that Sirhan (Trash Menagerie) did with Little Boots I’m pretty sure that I have a crush on her, too.
6 Reasons why you should also crush on her:
1.) She says she likes her favorite clothing label (Felder Felder) because it is “very futuristic”
2.) The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds is one of her favorite albums
3.) She took her name from the film/emperor Caligula (I’ve got a lot of respect for the Romans)
4.) She makes the Tenori-on sound amazing
You know what is messed up? If her Myspace page is anything to go by, she’s really into horses. Emperor Caligula was also into horses, and went as far as trying to make his horse into a priest and a consul (rumor has it he also turned the palace into a brothel).
Anyways, Little Boots reminds me of Goldfrapp who, it appears, is also into horses.
