This Too Shall Pass by OK Go. This Rube Goldberg Machine style MV was created by Syyn Labs. This agency is so good at creating this machine moving wonderland that later on they also created a advertising film for Google’s first online science competition.
At www.mta.me, Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop.

Friend of Product Displacement, Piotr Ślusarski, has launched Songs With a Brand Name, a directory of songs that mention brands within its lyrics or title. A great feature of the sight is searching for songs that mention a particular brand. Give Pandora a break and check out his site!!
The Lady Gaga’s new song, Born This Way, really triggers many thoughts in my mind. I am not just saying the lyrics, but more about some keywords and visuals mentioned in the opening narration of this music video: unicorn, birth vs. death (mother monster), two eggs, infinite, eternal.
This is the Manifesto of Mother Monster.
On G.O.A.T, a Government Owned Alien Territory in space, a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place. But the birth was not finite, it was infinite.
As the wombs numbered and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life was not temporal, it is eternal. And thus began the beginning of the new race. A race within the race of humanity. A race which bears no prejudice, no judgement, but boundless freedom. But on that same day as the eternal mother hovered in the multiverse another more terrifying birth took place: The birth of evil.
And as she herself split into two, rotating in agony between two ultimate forces, the pendulum of choice began its dance.
It seems easy, you imagine, to gravitate instantly and unwaveringly towards good. But she wondered: “How can I protect something so perfect, without evil?”
