HBO has just released Catch The Throne, a free, official hip hop album about and inspired by the world and characters of Game of Thrones. Clever marketing there, HBO. Download via SoundCloud at SoundCloud.com/CatchTheThrone
According to the two winemaking guys in this vid, who think very highly of themselves btw, there's a way to make high-end wine in 3 days for just $2 a bottle. I guess you could call it The Jesus Machine or something, 'cos aparently it turns water (and some concentrate) into wine just like that. But, they need some start-up cash to get the first 2000 machines made. Weird how they couldn't get any support from their fellow winemakers.
This looks brilliant. A film about Jimi Hendrix starring Andre 3000. Wonder if he learned to play like Jimi for the role. Anyway, the film's called All Is By My Side and its debuting at SXSW this week. Damn I wish I was there.

Artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder live in a giant 20 foot diameter human hamster wheel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (where else?). They're doing it for 10 days as a performance art piece to examine the relationship between roommates, space, and reliance on partners. Kinda reminds me of college dorm room to be honest, only slightly ore manageable :)

An ad that's supposed to highlight the plight of children in the Syrian civil war. Makes me think more about children all over the world struggling for survival, not just in Syria. Powerful stuff, folks.
Kinda forgot about these guys. Happy they're back. Here's their first single from the album Ghost Stories, out 19 May 2014. Very different sound for them. Digging it.

This interactive ad for Apotek Hjärtat’s Apolosophy hair products in Sweden will blow your hair back. Well, maybe not your hair but you'll get the point. Simple. Clever. Memorable. What more do you want from an ad?
Prankster Tom Mabe has a friend who drinks and drives. So much so, he already has five DUIs. So to teach him a lesson, his family agreed to allow Tom to prank the crap out of him and convince him that he'd been in a coma for 10 years after a drinking and driving accident. This should happen to more people.
