I’ve been wanting to do a post on “body architect” Lucy McRae for quite a while after discovering her somewhat creepy metallic skin and safety pin clips that explore the body’s relationship with artificial skins made from found objects. McRae makes her directorial debut in this carefully choreographed music video for the Australian band Rat vs Possum. (via your music today)

Goose: Synrise party music video Goose costumes

A new music video for Goose. Directed and production by David Strindberg and Johan Bring of PUNX STHLM (say that three times fast). I’ve watched this twice and all I can think about is how much fun this probably was too shoot. “Ok, everybody put on these insane costumes, line up, and completely spaz out. Action!” (via cliptip)

This weekend amid freezing and blustery conditions Chicago held its annual Chiditarod race. For those of you who are unfamiliar the Chiditarod Urban Iditarod is a combination pub crawl, costume contest and charity food drive, and if that’s not enough for you it’s all centered around a race where teams push decorated shopping carts across the city for most of the day, pausing at 11 strategically placed recovery checkpoints, that is: bars. This year the Chiditarod raised over $14,000 and collected 10,000 pounds of canned food for the Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation. Awesome. Thanks to Kirstie Shanley for the photos.

Side note. My cousin Ed Stielstra is at this very moment racing across the frozen Alaskan tundra in the actual Iditarod. So far he’s traveled 272 miles and still has all 16 dogs with him which is a great sign. Good luck Ed!

Wow it’s like if Michel Gondry directed Oompa Loompas. A film by This Is It.
