Two-thirds of our office has seen "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and we all agree it was one of Wes Anderson's strongest stories to date, right up there with "The Royal Tenenbaums" in terms of originality and overall filmmaking. (We like every film, "Darjeeling Limited" has a special place in our hearts as well). Somebody very clever, kogonada, who also created the awesome Kubrick "One-shot perspective" cut, has taken all the Wes Anderson films and shown the filmmakers knack for being "Centered."

"Teenage" is a new documentary by Matt Wolf that researches and examines the birth and prominence of youth and teenager culture in post-20th Century wartime eras. The film will be out on March 14 in select theaters, but we have the trailer today...

Turkey-based illustrator Murat Palta has created a good game for you (although we have ruined it by giving you captions). Citing the influence and style of Ottoman era miniature paintings, the artist has created a series of works that take our favorite films of Western cinema and given them that classic look.

Sculpture, the UK based duo of Dan Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland, comes Plastic Infinite. While played under a strobe light or filmed at 25fps, the 7" picture disc comes to life as the animated images circle round the turntable. Created like a zoetrope, the video showcases the imagery in action juxtaposed with eccentric intermittent jungle-like sounds.
Music // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
"When the music in me slows down, I pick up a pen and draw. When the ink begins to flow less easily, I trade the pen for an instrument and resume where I left off with a renewed sense of purpose. It’s a symbiotic relationship between art and music. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to tap into it and spend my days creating."
