Real-For-Real Miniature Airport

Posted by Scott

Incredible, working model of an airport in miniature. Apparently this is called “real-for-real”, described by CDM as “photographing real-world things, making real things in miniature, and setting the real world into motion”. Second video has some nice making of shots. Can’t even imagine the hours that must have gone into this.

Proper Instragram App Update

With 9 million users Instragram really doesn’t need anymore adaptors, it just needed what people wanted the most and I feel the newest updated is a huge success.

1. 4 new filters: Personally my favorite has been the Brandon filter or no filter at all but these ones like Rise definitely have potential in being used more often.

2. The option to have frames or not: Now you can use Earlybird(another good filter) without that heavy Polaroid border/frame.

3. Finally a pretty big one, live effects: no more guessing and fumbling around, put your favorite filter on and take the photo within the app.

So, if any of you Instagram users haven’t updated yet, I highly suggest it, the photo game just got even more fun.

Posted by Scott

We’ve got about a month to go until the full release of the new Tycho full length, Dive (out digital Oct. 25 / physical Nov. 15), but iTunes has the pre-order up now at a discount. I’m putting together a preview track with snippets from all the songs on the album, should be posting that in the coming weeks.

Starfawn is a avant synth project from Vermont natives Misha and Amber. Their style seems to be the best i’ve heard in the post-goth scramble thats going on. Tons of NES and SNES chipped out chunks collapsing into melodies while the vocals reach whimsical levels that serenade and melt the diverse sounds into one pleasing piece of work. Download this song for free on their mini site.

Beef Terminal comes from the Lefse/Waaga camp, dwelling in the Slowdive/Bvdub areas then gently raising out into the open with beats up front, this project definitely has potential and vision for a good live show for the lovers that drift in and out of euphoric sessions when they listen to music.

Went back to this Gang Gang Dance album, here’s the long cut, such a rewarding listen.

I’m expecting one of the best releases from Scandinavia with this Korallreven album, here’s our first taste, seems like the guys went for it, some pop intentions in there that don’t hurt, in love with piano part towards the end, can’t wait for the rest.
