James Nares: “STREET”
61-minutes of people watching shot at 780fps on the Phantom Flex high-speed camera. This is a short clip of the film on display at the Met.
“I wanted the film to be about people. All it needed were magical moments, and there are enough of those happening every moment of any given day.”

Zeitgeist 2012: Year In Review
“1.2 trillion searches. 146 languages. What did the world search in 2012?”
Diving down into the specific countries and categories the results can get interesting. In the US Burger King tops the charts for food delivery along with reflux for heath conditions.
Brooklyn Beta Theme Song
I could write endlessly about everything I learned and experienced at last week’s Brooklyn Beta conference**, but Jonathan Mann aka Song A Day Man’s three day montage manages to do it a small slice of justice.
**Conference is the wrong word, it’s more of a summer camp, family reunion hybrid for people who love making the internet.
A great product is closer to an accident. It’s the byproduct of the environment you build at your company. This environment may actually be harder to build than the product itself, but you’ll be left with a better everything by the end of it.
23 Year Road Trip
In what started out as a 18 month tour of Africa after the Berlin wall fell in 1989 turned into a 23 year journey for Gunther Holtorf, his wife and their Mercedes Benz G Wagon named “Otto”. In total “Otto” has taken them over 500,000 miles (without a breakdown) across almost every continent, to remote islands thanks to freight ships, and even off-limits countries like North Korea, Cuba and Iraq.
BBC News has an excellent video story of what might be the world’s most traveled man.
No Handed Bike Moves
A professional display of 50 No Handed Bike Moves performed to “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks. Who knew the Official Federation of No Handed Bikes Skills had sanctioned over 50 moves?
“Combining two images that were on the Tumblr Radar within the same day.” — topherchris
Inspired by Tumblr’s own topherchris we quickly threw together radarchop.tumblr.com, and we are open for submissions! Just grab two images from today’s Tumblr radar, hack them together and submit the results along with links to the posts featured in the radar.
Ry Craike captured at home over Summer by Rick Rifici on his latest High Speed Camera the RED EPIC from the water at 300 frames per second.
I’m convinced that you could film just about anything in the ocean at 300 frames per second and it would look pretty amazing. The track in the video is The Suburbs by Mr Little Jeans.
Oh that’s really cool! I’ve never heard of ppl using fb to do customer support!! Most just try to shove items in our face and expect us to buy things off fb!! Lol
- Cher C., in reply to Style Hatch’s support on Facebook that we just rolled out
If you or the brand you work with has “Facebook eCommerce page” anywhere our your social media strategy, you should fire your team. Ok, that might be a bit harsh, but the truth is people interact with brands on Facebook to have a personal connection not have them “shove items in our face”.
Facebook and social media belong in the customer experience world, not “oh look we can sell our stuff there too”.
World’s Largest Rope Swing
Filmed in Moab, Utah at the Corona Arch, Devin Graham and his crew rigged up a massive pendulum rope swing. All you have to do is jump off the platform, free fall 130 feet, soar 10 feet above the ground, and shoot up another 100 feet. The guy who went first had to be insane. Check out the behind the scenes video for all the crazy details.
The are the same guys who filmed downhill trike racing at 50mph.
Social networking sites give us portals into another person’s (user’s) mind, so far as that person (user) makes public their thoughts, ideas, feelings and desires. At times, we are perhaps more honest online, and especially on social networks, than we are in real life.
I am pretty certain that we can all think of a few people where there seems to be a contradiction from their introverted persona in real live to their eager to share persona online. This article looks at several recent psychology studies that help explain our ability to speak freely online.
“When the medium is impersonal, people are prepared to be personal.”
Culture, like brand, is misunderstood and often discounted as a touchy-feely component of business that belongs to HR. It’s not intangible or fluffy, it’s not a vibe or the office décor. It’s one of the most important drivers that has to be set or adjusted to push long-term, sustainable success.
Jiberish Fall 2011 Lookbook
“For their Fall Collection Jiberish decided to venture outside of their traditional lookbook and create a video to showcase a few pieces through film.” —Michael Clark, videographer and creator of the lookbook.
As a bonus, I just realized that Michael Clark is active on Tumblr and using our Swell theme.
