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!

Kite Hill

Kite Hill sky outdoors kids Chicago

Shot by Paul Octavious (previously) at the Kids & Kites Festival at Montrose Harbor. Fun fact: I was out and about with Colossal Junior on this day, though it doesn’t look like we made a cameo. This is about four blocks from headquarters. It always amazes me how beautiful Paul makes our neighborhood look, or perhaps sometimes I just fail to see the beauty in it, though this was indeed a glorious day.
