Oona Rocks

Enjoying this music video featuring a ukulele-playing, maraca-shaking girl who rocks out pretty hardcore with the assistance of some spectacularly fun editing. After 3:00 she goes into overdrive and it gets a little tragic. We can only hope she’ll be reassembled for future techno goodness.

Every Single Toy (Almost) From the 1980s: The King of Legoland toys kids compilation animation

If you picked up a toy in the 1980s, be it a car, Transformers, LEGO, or a Nintendo game, chance is, it might be in this video. I think my mind just exploded with nostalgia. Music by Hunting Charlie’s Band(e), video directed by Micaël Reynaud. And look, animated GIFs for all you Tumblrs. (via vimeo)

Homework

Homework social public kids Chicago

This Friday the prolifically creative folks at Chicago-based The Post Family are hosting an exhibition of work from the equally industrious Austin-based design studio Public School. Via their website:

PUBLIC SCHOOL is an Austin-based collective focused on design, illustration and photography. For a group based around creative collaboration, Homework is an opportunity to show the work created individually, after-hours, and with no client direction. Spanning a variety of mediums and covering subjects including cowboys, hot dogs, old motels, 30s stuff, and trade gothic, Homework features much of the self-initiated work produced by the studio this year.

More info can be found here. Looking forward to it!

Traveling today, posting will be regrettably light!

A six year old boy. Underwater. Riding a shark.

A six year old boy. Underwater. Riding a shark. what the what? water nature kids documentary

So what did you do when you were six? I played with Legos, watched a TV show called 3-2-1 Contact, and ate Trix cereal. That was pretty much my day-to-day. But this fearless child is on a road less traveled. His name is Enal and he lives with an Indonesian fishing community known as the Bajau Laut. In this photo captured by James Morgan, he swims with sharks in a penned off area underneath his home that rests on stilts in Wangi, Indonesia. Via the photographer’s web site:

Whilst few young children are now born on boats, the ocean is still very much their playground and whilst they are getting conflicted messages from their communities, who simultaneously refrain from spitting in the ocean and continue to dynamite its reefs, I still believe they could play a crucial role in the development of western marine conservation practices. Here Enal plays with his pet shark.

The next time I tense up watching my three-year-old son do something audacious in the park or walk out “too far” into the deeper end of the swimming pool, I think this image will seriously put things into perspective. Time to get some pet sharks. The photograph won the Telegraph’s 2010 Travel Photographer of the Year award. Seriously, look at that smile! (via lustik)
