As many of you noted, iTunes originally only posted "The Daydream" as a single; "The Disconnect" was supposed to be included as the B-side. The error has been fixed; the single now shows up as a new item with both songs included. Unfortunately it is now missing all the original comments and ratings. At any rate you can now get the full version of the single here.
Others have asked whether there is currently any alternative to iTunes for purchasing the songs. Ghostly released the single as a 2 month exclusive on iTunes, so when that time is up it will be available everywhere, including right here for direct purchase.
The Marina Green, Marina Asphalt, London, and Command shirts have all been reprinted and are now in stock at The ISO50 Shop.
Found this on Youtube. By Joaquim who, if I’m not mistaken, comments on this blog now and then.
Some great shots of the Carl Zeiss Universarium IX from the Griffith Observatory in LA from Metroblogging LA via FFFFOUND. Someone needs to start producing scale replicas of this thing, I’d be first in line.
Last week I noted that this reminded me of some fractal-like plate designs but I couldn’t remember the source. Joshua Gajownik was kind enough to fill in the blank. The second image is a plate from Klaus Haapaniemi’s Taika series for Iittala. The detail in these is amazing.
Jakub sent me the Timothy Saccenti video for Animal Collective’s "Peacebone"; a perfectly amazing visualization of a perfectly amazing song.
I’ve embedded the Youtube version for ease of use, but I’d encourage you to check out the higher quality Quicktime version here. It does a little better justice to the audio / visual.
A nice plate from Owen Jone’s 1856 "The Grammar of Ornament". I really like this original version best; I have the new version which is not quite as vibrant. I hear there is a "professional artist" edition on CD-ROM which is supposed to be truer to the original.
