More Cinemagraphs… Updated!

First of all, I want to thank every single one of you out there who took the time to contact me to let me know my last Cinemagraphs post was not working. I checked it, fixed it and updated it with some new movie-based gems! I guess you can say I made it up to you :) Here’s the copy from my previous post… You might remember my previous posts featuring these amazingly beautiful photos/gifs HERE and even the great interview with the creators of this art form Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg also HERE. Being that I am a little obsessed with these beauties and since I know you love them as well, I want to share some new gems I stumbled upon. ENJOY!

iPlayboy

TheeBlog-iPlayboy
Remember those nudie magazines your friends used to bring to school? You know, those old Playboy relics they used to steal from that single ‘cool, uncle’. Whether you admit it or not (you might be at work, in that case, we’ll stick to the ‘articles’ story), Playboy has been present for ages and can be considered part of the American life. And now, a new app has been released, containing all Playboy covers -and believe you me this will bring back memories :) Now, I must admit that I mostly decided to post this because I know a few friends who decided to create and design apps and have gone through hell and back trying to get Apple’s approval. How’s this for ‘following rules’ guys? Check out the app and download it if you want to feel again like a horny 13 year old boy. Or girl…

The work of Seb Janiak

TheeBlog-SebJaniak

Remember those artists or classes in College that inspired you or made you want to do something crazy and unique? Well, today’s post features the talented, France based Photographer, Seb Janiak whose work I discovered while in Photography classes. Unfortunately, I had lost the link - and proper spelling of his name - but I always remembered his work and wanted to share it here. Well, yesterday while browsing the interweb, I found his portfolio and as you can expect, I am sharing it today. His creative, out-of-the-box approach to digital Photography is remarkable and has helped him direct Music Videos for artists like Method man, Robbie Williams, Janet Jackson and more! Check out this small collection of his lovely work (and a sweet Daft Punk series!)

Occupy George

TheeBlog-OccupyGeorge
By now, we all know about the Occupy Movement… Hopefully. I saw the action first hand last week in New York and have been following it via the interweb. Now, we can all be part of it and help spread the message without getting arrested – unless you’re into that :) OccupyGeorge.com is a new site you have to check out. Their main purpose is to spread the ‘knowledge’ via dollar bill stamped infographics. Check out the gallery and download the ‘Do It Yourself’ kit after the jump!

Run Chicken, Run.

TheeBlog-YardBird

By now, most of you know me well and know that I love to post and share work, places or stories I like or find inspiring. You may also remember I promised to post more food-related material after our interview with our cool friend Maria Argüello (Yelp’s Community Manager) HERE And today I not only keep my promise, I also bring you a sweet new spot I recently discovered (heard a lot of buzz ) which might soon become the coolest shack in town! Yardbird – Southern Table & Bar is Miami Beach’s newest gem, and could be easily described as a hybrid between a hip SOHO bar + Cracker Barrel. This southern style shack perfectly combines lovely branding, beautiful architecture/interiors & delicious food. What more can you ask for!

It is no secret that as a society, we are exposed to hundreds -if not thousands- of brands and logos on a daily basis.

Faux•go is a cool new site that has collected many iconic logos from classics like Karate Kid, Terminator, Coming to America, Dumb & Dumber, Mad Men and many more…
