A brief history of mankind according to a theory that apes at one point ate shrooms which doubled the size of their brains in a mere 2 million years, aka making us awesome today. This is actually an intro to a Comedy Central pilot, Thunderbrain…woulda never guessed that. It goes hard. #THINK!
Photographer, Eric Cahan recently showed an exhibition entitled Sky Series. He photographed various skies from locations around the world typically around sunrise or sunset, making colors and gradients the subject. They came out beautifully and quite trippy. Above is the video that went along with his exhibit.
I mentioned this a/v master in an earlier post, and I couldn’t get enough. By definition, a strange loop is basically when, whether you move up or down (or in any opposing directions) you end up exactly where you started the movement (See MC Escher’s work). Makes sense because every new vision created I see by this guy leaves me going back for more. Strangloop’s stuff is extremely trippy and awesome to fall into. Check out some of my favorites from his work and collabs below. Bow down people, Dr. Strangeloop is here.

I invite you to fall into these music videos and their music. This music videos are emotional, puzzling, thought-provoking, all that great shit. Some great talents are featured and I encourage you to look them up outside of TCC. This is my 109th post or so, and I thank you for reading any of them, including this one. Just trying to keep it (un)real. 🙂
This Teebs music video used 200 smoke bombs and fits the effortlessness of Moments perfectly.
This song is by Fall On Your Swords, made up of an LCD Soundsystem member, and chosen to score “Another Earth” (A fantastic movie I just saw and will be posting about soon). Is this how you would feel if you were captivated by Jupiter’s surface movements, its constant storms and fluid turmoil from afar?

The Tree of Life is one of those movies that makes all the sense in the world (literally) while you’re watching it, and much less sense when you try and contemplate it’s meaning afterwards. That in mind, I will try to write about it intelligently as I can. First off, if you are the kind of person you really likes a movie with a good, strong plot, you won’t find one in Tree of Life. You’re probably better off going to see Bad Teacher, or heck, maybe even Transformers 3. But I don’t blame it for having a weak plot because the movie itself examines the birth of life in our universe (aka as we know it), and the tragic the loss of it, and the big questions most of us will ask at some point in our lives: is there a God, if so, where is he and why does he punish the seemingly good (me), why I am here on this Earth, where do we go after we leave it, and what does it mean to be truly alive. All of this is played to the backdrop of a 1950s Texas family who is struck by the tragedy of a death in the family. Let’s see some else address those questions in a little over 2 hours as beautifully as Terrence Malick and his cinematographer, Emanuel Lubezki did. Each shot was the most beautiful photograph I could imagine. I enjoyed the film thoroughly until I got tired, when my buzz faded. But even on the come down, my mouth dropped at scenes like the one involving dinosaurs, a predator and a prey (I was like, did that really just happen?). For some of it I felt like I was watching Plant Earth through a more artistic lens. The abstract scenes of the cosmos are breathtaking and they consumed me as I became a part of them.
