I’ve been listening to My Analogue Journey which has got an amazing selection of Japanese music as part of his videos. Check this out. My Analogue Journey pulls together some buttery smooth records; like a high class version of smooth radio.
Streaming Up From Boston – Info on how to watch here | Dropkick Murphys – what really surprised me is that enterprise software company Pegasystems stepped up to financially support this. Its an amazing concert by the Dropkick Murphys.
I am a big fan of SIGGRAPH demo videos. They are are an amazing amalgam. Reality and Daliesque surrealism. This video is very much in that SIGGRAPH vein. The physics of this video is amazing, but has a distinct otherworldly quality.
Huggies candid campaign takes on parent-shaming | Canvas8 – Procter & Gamble have built a stable of expertise in mixing ads with social purpose. Some of these ads have been more effective than others, for instance the Gillette ads have fallen flat with male customers.

ICYMI: Vanilla Ice apologises for crimes against music in this campaign from Virgin to ‘Right Music… | Creative Moment – using celebrities and getting the balance right is always a tough one. In this particular case Virgin seems to have done a better job rebuilding up the brand of Vanilla Ice than its own brand. It was an interesting insight that consumers no longer know about Virgin’s musical heritage that gave it its original cool factor. I guess its time for Mike Oldfield to release another follow on to Tubular Bells and remind gen Z of Virgin’s relevance. I do wonder if Vodafone had a similar but less extreme issue with its ads that revolved around Martin Freeman.
