Band ‘Hacks’ Spotify To Fund Tour
 

Band ‘Hacks’ Spotify To Fund Tour

‘Hack’ is not the correct term, but it’ll do in place of a full description in a headline. Basically, the band – Vulfpeck, a funk band from Ann Arbor, Michigan, found a loophole in Spotify’s payment terms. Spotify pays per play, so Vulfpeck made an album of silent songs and then told their fans to listen to it all night. In return the band say they will use the money to tour to the cities where Spotify is most active, and charge no entrance fee. Check out their pitch video.

The Best Parkour Of 2014, So Far
 

The Best Parkour Of 2014, So Far

Everyone wants to be a fucking freerunner, or ‘Parkour’ specialist. There’s no denying I’d love to be able to do the things these dudes, but that would require a lot more time swinging and jumping from bars as apposed to drinking in them. Happy to take the bench on this one coach. Anyway, the internet is saturated with dudes jumping around abandoned buildings, some of them good, most, not. This is a great exception. The tracking shots in this short make it.

Barts Fishtales, An Instagram Cooking Show

Instagram is my favourite child. I’m not ashamed, the rest of them know it. If Twitter wants to be the favourite it had better start behaving, and lose a lot of its friends. Here’s another awesome example of how people are using Instagram. This dude, Bart, has an Instagram cooking show, with each episode making use of the full 15 second maximum upload, and he does it very well.

National Geographics Archivist: The Real Walter Mitty

Bill Bonner, National Geographics vintage archivist, who overseas around 8 million images, has literally seen the world through photographs. He is basically a real life Walter Mitty (a movie you should watch by the way – if only for a little bit of adventure inspiration). Bill says he has seen every one of the photographs in his designated collection, which must be, firstly, absolutely incredible – to see images others never will, of a world long gone, but secondly, incredibly frustrating. Daily I’m exposed to content from around the world, and daily I yearn for the places I see. Having Bills job would literally drive me mad.

Facebook Look Back – WALTER WHITE
 

Facebook Look Back – WALTER WHITE

Like those horrid Nek Nominations, the latest ‘a look back’ video thing Facebook is doing has further weakened my faith in humanity. They are so naff people. And they add more shit to an already shit saturated platform. Anyway, Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues, local dudes producing great online content – you may remember them from the Braai Day parody took advantage of this little fad and created a Facebook Look Back video for Walter White of Breaking bad. They uploaded it on the 6th of February, it was picked up by all the big sites internationally, posted on the official Breaking Bad wall, and is now sitting just short of 2 MILLION views. That is viral. That is how to win the internet. Nice work boys.
