In this new Coldplay video for Strawberry Swing, we take a journey with Chris Martin. As a modern day superhero, it's no surprise that he saves the girl in the end. What is surprising, is how well done this stop-animation video is. Notice that chalk was used to create these scenes. Of course, you may also notice that they used a lot of the same techniques as you see in videos spread all over the web, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a beautiful… Continue
I know that we're a bit heavy on video posts today but I just have to share this new music video for Kid Cudi's 'Make Her Say' Feat. Kanye West. "Make Her Say" samples an acoustic version of Lady GaGa's smash hit "Poker Face".
"We put a little trick-a-roo on you," Cudi told MTV about the newly-outed video. "We wanted to go for a real abstract and iconic-looking video, something real artsy. It's really dope. It's like split screen, and how he shot it is with… Continue

It's a sign of the modern times when an average guy like Mike Song can dance to Wii music and create fans around the world. This video was uploaded a little over a week ago and right now has over 500K hits. It's geeky great!

This video shows Shepard Fairey (Obama Hope poster, Obey, etc.) working in his studio in LA. Its really interesting to see how he composes his work. There's a lot more layers and steps than I would've imagined. The music on the video is 'Everybody's Down' by No Age and the Director was Felipe Lima. Read more about this vid and order the Arkitip mag… Continue
Sure the song's a little old but the video is relatively new. Tell me if you don't feel bad for this kid after you watch it. Monsters rock but not when they scare the bejesus out of innocent kids. Let's hope MGMT paid for his future therapy… Continue
Ok so I feel there's a lack of gadget content on the MET. So today I'm gonna present one of my favorite one (and god knows I'm a gadget freak !!): the Chumby.
What's that thing with that funky name ??
Well that's an adorable little box, super design and sexy. It's squishy all around and made of leather (different colors) and plastic. No button apparent. The only way to interfere with it is by pressing on its top (equivalent to home button on… Continue
Vivid Sydney kicked off today and one of the key events is the Luminous Music Festival. It is curated by one of my favorite artists, musician Brian Eno. He also created the installation shown above 77 Million Paintings — using about 300 of his drawings projected onto the sails of the opera house. It is shown each night from 6 p.m. to midnight. Eno envisioned a mesmerizing sight for the public to pause and enjoy. "I think what I am most… Continue
Some of our very own Met members, Victor and Arlene, are spinning some phat beats this Sunday at Halo in Hollywood! Come out and support them. You get Monday off, people, so there's not excuse not to party!
Poligraf has been an essential part of my life since its inception at the beginning of February 1998.
The adventure began after the collapse of a band that probably never really existed as it only had a handful of rehearsals, but for which I had already written a lot of material. Left alone at the helm, I connected with a group of experienced musicians via a co-worker friend and after agreeing on a general aim and formula, we raised sail… Continue
Buddhism has been an essential part of my life since the mid-90s.
The adventure began when I stumbled upon a feature in an encyclopedic dictionary that highlighted the Four Noble Truths. That finding immediately sparked my curiosity and a few days later I was buying a copy… Continue
