Pearl Jam - Superblood Wolfmoon - point your phone to the moon!

There is only one man who could get me to soberly climb onto my building’s rooftop for a gimmicky artificial reality app in the middle of February, and his name is Eddie Vedder, the frontman of ‘90s Seattle grunge group Pearl Jam.

On Thursday, Pearl Jam rolled out a snippet of a new song entitled “Superblood Wolfmoon” that you can only listen to by pointing your phone at the Moon. If you go to moon.pearljam.com, you’ll be greeted with a screen that asks you to align an on-screen circle with the Moon. Once you line everything up, animations hover around your real-world Moon that are timed to the music.

The app, which was developed with a company called Powster, is hard to trick, too. Yesterday, I messaged the link to all of my closest friends, and it wasn’t dark enough for some of them on the other side of the country to see the Moon. One friend tried holding up a quarter as a stand-in Moon and couldn’t get it to work.

The track won’t be migrating over to Spotify, Apple Music, or any other streaming service until February 18th. So if you’re a Vedder superfan like me, you’ll have to stand out in the cold with your phone pointed toward the Moon to hear the same few seconds of the same song for another four days.

Pearl Jam’s new record Gigaton is due out on March 27th, and the band will head out on a North American tour one week before the album is released.

Limbo Limbo Travel


Limbo Limbo Travel from LARDUX FILMS on Vimeo.
One of the most exciting animated short films of 2015! Selected for Sundance 2016, Annecy, Clermont Ferrand, award-winner at 8 festivals!

In a country where men are more in love with their gadgets than with their female counterparts, a group of lonely and disillusioned ladies get on the legendary Limbo Limbo tour bus. Off to a far, exotic land, they hope to find the long sought-for Happiness. Meeting the inhabitants of Moustache Island, the women's primal instincts are enflamed: while hunting down this rare species of Real Men, they turn against each other and against the titanic forces that rule the Island.

Dans un monde où les femmes sont délaissées par les hommes, une poignée d’entre elles décident de prendre le Limbo-Limbo Bus dans l’espoir de trouver le bonheur tant espéré. Elles débarquent sur une île exotique lointaine, habitée par une tribu d’hommes-moustaches vivant nus, à l’état sauvage. Cette rencontre éveille les instincts primitifs des femmes qui, sans se soucier des règles de bienséance, se lancent à la chasse à l’homme…

A non dialog crazy animated short film by Zsuzsanna Kreif & Borbala Zetenyi.

Le Tour de Pants with Ali Selim


Le Tour de Pants with Ali Selim from Tall Glass with Ice Productions on Vimeo.
When Alexi Grewal won gold in the 1984 Olympics, it wasn't because he was wearing spandex. Filmmaker, Ali Selim, was one of the only few keen enough to understand why Grewal won.

SOUTH POLE | ANTARCTICA 8K60


SOUTH POLE | ANTARCTICA 8K60 from Martin Heck | Timestorm Films on Vimeo.
Filming at the South Pole during the polar night is pretty much as hard as it gets. Temperatures below -70°C/-95°F are not uncommon. Cables break like spaghetti, LCD displays freeze up even electronic components stop working.
Cameras always have to be heated, motion control gear modified and setups made storm-proof.
Many of the shots in the video have been recorded for 24h or more to capture a full revolution of the earth spinning once around its axis.
Shot by Benjamin Eberhardt, experiment operator and astrophysicist at the IceCube Neutrino telescope at the the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station. He spent a full winter at the pole with over a year spent on the ice.
