Angel Olsen Releases the Casually Epic 8.5-Minute Song/Video, “Sister” Angel Olsen’s first two singles from her upcoming album My Woman were both brief, and oppositionally great.

Angel Olsen Releases the Casually Epic 8.5-Minute Song/Video, “Sister”

On “Intern,” Olsen’s synthy fugue state of a song, she uneasily considered her relationship to perceptions of her and then drastically shifted to romance, ending with the ironically breathless, half-hearted conviction, “Pick up the phone but I swear it’s the last time.” On the explosively grungy “Shut Up Kiss Me,” she had real resolve, and it was aimed outwards: she wasn’t going to “hang up” the phone, and she was going to command a relationship, with the imperative, “Shut up, kiss me, hold me tight.” Now, her third release offers something long enough to straddle both moods: “Sister” begins in languorous contemplation that leads toward explosive revelation, all drawn out over the course of eight minutes. The music video that accompanies — the third self-directed video from the LP, though this one was co-directed with Conor Hagen — is fitting, if un-distractingly pleasant.

The Chemical Brothers - Wide Open (feat. Beck) Lord Huron - The World Ender (Official) Sturgill Simpson Sings A Surreal Lullaby In 'Breakers Roar' Screening Room: “Boogaloo and Graham” “Boogaloo and Graham,” by the Northern Irish director Michael Lennox, is a delightful and funny short film that contains, as a kind of hidden surprise, a meditation on fear.

Screening Room: “Boogaloo and Graham”

The movie, which was nominated for an Academy Award this year, follows a family—two boys (Riley Hamilton and Aaron Lynch) and their father and mother (Martin McCann and Charlene McKenna)—during a few months in Belfast during the Troubles. It’s the summer of 1978. Outside the family’s apartment, armed patrols prowl the streets. Inside, the father unboxes his sons’ new pets: two baby chicks, whom the boys name Boogaloo and Graham. Often, Lennox shows us the world through the parents’ eyes: the drab apartment, the mounting Troubles, the absolute vulnerability of their young children.

Ornate Painted Dragons Based on a Single Giant Brush Stroke.

A Man Said She Was Too Old To Be Seen With Him In Public. Well, She’s Going Real Public Now. Jeff Goldblum Is Out of His Mind in Tim & Eric's Loony Ad for GE Lighting. GE has been doing a lot of poignant ads through BBDO New York lately—the dreamy fantasy world of "Childlike Imagination" (an Emmy nominee this year); the haunting dystopia of "Ideas Are Scary"; the adorably odd science fiction of "The Boy Who Beeps.

Jeff Goldblum Is Out of His Mind in Tim & Eric's Loony Ad for GE Lighting

" So, obviously it was time to completely change things up—and hire Tim & Eric (aka, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim) to direct a barely clothed but great-haired Jeff Goldblum in this totally bonkers fake infomercial for the GE Link lighting solutions. It's kind of all over the map, but the two-minute spot has lots of enjoyable over-the-top moments—particularly the peppy transitions from super-suave Goldblum to the "unremarkable nobodies" who deliver the testimonials.

A fake infomercial isn't the route you'd typically choose for explaining new technology like GE Link. But this seems to be more of an awareness play.

Sometimes the sound of chirping and singing birds can be enough to inspire a feeling of peace and tranquility. But for Australian multimedia artist Andy Thomas — who specializes in creating “audio life forms” — such dulcet tones inspired something more: curiosity about what they might look like as sound-driven 3D animations.

The result: Nightingale & Canary, a bird sound animation video that you need know nothing whatsoever about to enjoy. Just ask my cats. This crazy gorgeous piece, commissioned by Europeana Creative and funded by the EU, uses recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. Alongside photographs of various flora and fauna, sketches, and even paintings, the artist uses a variety of 3D visualization software to achieve dramatic and enchanting motion graphics. This synthesis creates the animation in concert with the music for a visually arresting result.
