Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)- late edition

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s been a roller coaster ride of a  Brexit week.  The truth is that I didn’t have the heart to post anything on Friday, the day has been surreal.  As an EU national living in the UK it felt I’d been told to fuck off by a small majority if its residents. The atmosphere when I got into the office was similar to having had a death in the family. Before people got down to work, they were chatting in huddles and looked visibly shocked at the Brexit result. It’s understandable, many of them are EU nationals like me, we’re part of a French group working on a German client.  The most depressing aspect of Brexit week is that it’s going to get worse before it all gets any better. More on Brexit here.

I like my computer entertainment trippy rather than action packed like this trailer for computer game ABZU

ABZÛ by 505 Games seems to fit the bill judging from this trailer shown at E3. Looks like I need to go out and buy a PS4 as this will be arriving in August. How immense would this look if it tapped into the PS4 PSVR capability?

Amazing analysis of typography in Blade Runner. The level of detail is impressive. It also speaks volumes of the set designers and visualisers like Syd Mead

Great video of Banjoman Button Remix – SUPER CÉILÍ & Goitre as an obvious homage to Christopher Walken in Fatboy Slim in Weapon of Choice. It sounds tremendous.

Tony Quattro’s soundtrack for Adidas running is tremendous.

Best battle of the bastards meme after the Game of Thrones episode caused an outburst of video creativity. Equating Jon Snow to Leeeeeeeroy Jenkins was genius. Whilst we talk about the fragmentary nature of online content, mainstream media is still providing the key cultural moments.
