Jason Eppink was recently invited to the Museum of Arts and Design in New York to speak about his involvement with Improv Everywhere.

Read a quick interview about the incident over on Hyperallergic.

 

 



The Parking Lot

After getting several recommendations from friends I finally caught The Parking Lot this weekend via Netflix streaming.

Tension rises, deep introspection begins and hilarity ensues. Do yourself a favor and give it a watch.

If you’re done sightseeing in Moscow, why not leave the city and hook up some DIY bungee jumping from an abandoned building.

Fun viral advert for Batelco, and an obligatory making of clip. Made by Spy Films, which also produced Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 precursor, Alive in Joburg. And don’t miss the District 9 sequel viral advert just released last week. (via pratt)
