Recently we’ve been seeing a growth in 360 degree panoramic videos coming out. Well we recently got in touch with Onion Creek Productions who worked on a music video for Wild Child entitled “Rillo Talk.” This is a perfect example of innovation in 360 degree video work. The song is chilling as well. Watch the video and see some excerpts after the jump!

Not too long ago we posted up a video of Jonas Ginter who mounted 8 GoPro cameras above his bicycle to create a “tiny world.” In similar aesthetic, Ryan Staake uses the same model of camera rigging and goes up in the sky for this new music video for German house duo Booka Shade entitled “Crossing Borders.”
According to a number of online sources, Dave Brockie the lead singer of GWAR, also known as Oderus Urungus was found dead in his home Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 at approximately 7pm. Police don’t suspect foul play and the body has been sent off for an autopsy. We were lucky enough to interview him for our 4th issue in 2012 and it was a dream come true. The man was witty, intelligent and stacked with tons of great ideas. We want to express our deepest condolences to the band, friends and family and he will be truly missed by anyone who knew him or his craft.

The guys from Warby Parker got in contact with us about an exciting new project they’re doing with musical artist Beck. The two are collaborating on a music meets fashion project that is celebrated with a new line of frames entitled “Carmichael.” Below is their press release about the project and after the jump a lot of amazing pictures of the frames.
For this post, we decided to get a little bit funky with it. We have a newly released song entitled “Yo Majesty” from a rap duo who go by the name of the Fierce Kingz. The evidently schizophrenic artists rap about medieval and royal cultures using what we think is correct terminology and also dress up to fit the part. The song reminds us of something like BANGS who had that hit single “Take U to Da Movies” or the guys from the comedy group Workaholics who have a parody rap group called “The Wizards” with songs such as “Potion Mixin“. Love it or hate it, we think you’ll get a laugh. Watch the peculiar video “Yo Majesty” after the jump!
