Wanna Win VIP Tickets To A Yankee Game? Hmm...

To many a sad New Yorker, Yankee Stadium was a symbol of hope and pride. When it was demolished in 2010 it angered basically everyone. You'll be glad to know though, some of it still lives on... thanks to MasterCard. 20 original seats from the stadium will be scattered around New York City starting Monday for a Facebook Places campaign. No, they're not for sale,  but you can use them to win VIP tickets to see a game at the new Yankee Stadium across the street. Fans who find the seats and scan a QR Code will be checked in to Facebook Places and make themselves eligible to win VIP tickets to a 2011 Yankee game in MasterCard’s exclusive Batter’s Eye CafĂ©. Hey batter, batter...

Brain 1. Money 0. Hmm...


When you have no money, a great product and you want to get noticed... there's only one thing you can use. Your brain. That's what obscure visual effects company Red Giant Software did with this webvideo. See, they develop visual effects plug-ins, good ones apparently, but they didn't have a way to get the word out. Until they came up with the idea of enlisting an indie filmmaker to write a tight script and shoot a short film in which each cleverly interwoven scene involves a different visual effect they offer. They called it Plot Device and it has almost a million hits in just 2 weeks. Boom!

A Sequel That Doesn't Suck. Hmm...
















































































So two super rad peeps I know are involved in throwing an artsy fartsy hipsterific event called Invisible Cities. They're these flippen awesome assemblies of creative types who just want to be exposed to new, hip, awesome shit engulfed by a mix of art, music and cultural diversity. Sunday was their 3rd installment. Sadly, I did not attend... but I heard it was off the chain! So now I feel bad and am going to pay close attention to this site so I don't miss any more.

One Funny-As-Hell Animated Interview. Hmm...


So my buddies Shane, Craig and Gump stopped by local youth music channel MK to chat about their band Pestroy. I must say, I never expected an interview like this. Hahahahahaha!

A Rare Look Inside El Bulli. Hmm...
