Music | Concert Footage | Fabchannel

I was pointed in the direction of Fabchannel.com by a friend who is much more aware of these things. These things being all things Dutch, seeings how he speaks the language whereas the only Dutch anything coming out of my mouth are the salt dropjes as I spit them across the room after being lulled into a false sense of candy-security.

There's some great current concerts available for viewing, including The Handsome Furs (what up, Canada?), The Arcade Fire (holla if you're feeling me, Canucks!), You Say Party! We Say Die! (seriously, can I get a shout out here, Canada?), CSS (hola!), Duke Special (top o' the mornin'), Michael Franti and Spearhead as well as Ani Difranco (keep your arms down, hippies), and The Cold War Kids before they graduated to the big hall. There's Damien Rice and Bright Eyes if you want to look at your shoes for an extended period of time, and several year's worth of Dutch Air Guitar Championships if you wanna get your rock on :)

Advertising | Commercial | Hungary

Yes, I've been neglecting this site for far too long. Hopefully that will change soon and I will resume posting with more frequency. Anyhoo, today I was searching for photos of '90s ravers (don't ask) and stumbled up on this amazing, totally inspired commercial from Hungary.

Kind of makes you realise how a really good, simple ad can be done on the cheap and doesn't even need to be in a language you understand to communicate the basic idea.
