Acclaimed Performances Leverage Custom Content Creation and Bleeding-Edge Projection Mapping from Leviathan and VSL
CHICAGO - Leviathan chief scientist Matt Daly and his colleagues at the design-focused, Chicago-based production studio are very proud to detail their artistry in conjunction with V Squared Labs (VSL) which is contributing to the acclaim of Amon Tobin's live tour supporting his new Ninja Tune Records release entitled "ISAM." The tour has recently added new dates and venues, to include upcoming stops in the Netherlands and Poland this month, before returning to many major cities in North America for a dozen performances to occur in September and October. The latest information is available online at http://www.amontobin.com/tour.
As described in countless high-profile media articles and reviews, Tobin's breathtaking set for his ISAM performances features an array of interconnected boxes, including one central cube that acts as the artist's own cockpit. The use of real-time projection mapping and generative, audio-reactive graphics, mixed with traditionally rendered media creates one-of-a-kind experiences for each audience.
Daly and Leviathan are pleased to have built upon their longstanding working relationship with VSL's VJ, producer and director Vello Virkhaus to form the engineering and production team behind this groundbreaking project.
Following a string of recent commercial work for Nissan, MSNBC, Audi, Lexus and Sprint, Emmy Award-winning composer Jonathan Elias has released the long-awaited sequel to his critically acclaimed Prayer Cycle album with the innovative and genre-spanning Prayer Cycle 2: Path to Zero. The latest in a series of experiential and diverse albums, this latest work brings to light the intense social and moral implications of nuclear weapons, with all proceeds to benefit nuclear disarmament charity Global Zero.
"This is a legacy project," stated Elias. "You try to write a few things in your lifetime that you can pass down to your kids. I see what kind of world we're leaving behind for them. It seems obvious that if we allow the continuing proliferation of nuclear weapons, there soon won't be much of a world to live in."

In the middle of battle today, some assclown flew in asking us if we needed any help. Calls himself “The Mighty Eagle.” Hey, narcissism, how’s it going? Pretty clear he’s on steroids, but no one wants to call him out on it because he doesn’t seem that emotionally stable.
Over in Japan it seems they sell boob jelly treats. Yes, little cups of some sort of boobie colored pudding (complete with pink nipple spot) served in round cups that are attached to a manga-styled female to erase any doubt that these are boobie-puddings. Why I.. I just... I.. Just ....what the.. ffff...!? Seriously though, if anyone brings me some of these I promise to eat them. Tres weird.

No sooner had I finished reading News of the World pulls all ads after client exodus at BrandRepublic when twitter went nuts with the news that News Of The World is no more. The NOTW tag has gems from all major newspapers and journalists:

At http://www.bigfuel.com/jobs Big Fuel mock those training college ads while announcing that they are actually looking to hire you. They got it all, hot and cold water, sassy pillows, laptops and all other things that belong in a non-traditional agency. Don't apply for "iguana wrestler" though, that job is so mine! And yes, that's Jon Bond from the "traditional" agency we all know and love - Kirshenbaum and Bond, now he is the CEO Big Fuel Communications LLC, and he's never been happier. Thanks Big Fuel.

Zombie, who recently directed the "Torturer" for Woolite which can be seen on Facebook page if you bribe them with a like (I hate that sort of blackmail). It's a homage to the Texas Chainsaw massacre, but the object of torture are your cute pink sweaters and sensitive clothes. Zombie is the son of carnival workers, which may explain his fascination of the macabre and crazy, which he'll add to anything he touches.

I had the pleasure of joining the Beancast last night for BeanCast Episode 152: You Can Turn It On It's Side, where dusty old jokes were told, facebook was hated upon and new ways of using the Pepsi Social Vending machine were invented. One of the ideas was to have it shoot Pepsi cans in the nuts of people, but there's better ones. ;)
