Procrastination

Published January 27, 2010 by Molly

Procrastination is Johnny Kelly’s graduation film for MA in animation at the Royal College of Art. An investigative study into the practice (and art) of putting things off, it offers the thesis that sometimes the only way to get something done is to do two dozen other things first. Sound familiar?

Keiji Haino

Trying to describe artist/musician Keiji Haino is like trying to hear a dog whistle. It doesn’t work. Our equipment isn’t prepared to handle such a sensation. In lieu of description, check out the video above and the interview (conducted by Alan Cummings) here, plus the excerpt below.

Alan Cummings : I’d like to ask you a bit about your childhood first. What were you like as a child?

Keiji Haino : I was definitely different from everyone else. Looking back now it sort of seems to have been inevitable, but I was different from everyone else. My first memories are from around the time I went to kindergarten. It seems very symbolic now, but I remember that when all the other kids were playing in the sand pit, I’d be playing with building bricks. And when they were all playing with the building bricks, I’d be in the sand pit.

The rest is for you to figure out.

My brother Sam has a new video out for one of my favorite tracks on a record with a lot of favorite tracks. If you haven’t heard it yet, its NASA, Spirit of Apollo. He also just helped me on the scoring and remixing music for a short I did with Kanye, We Were Once a Fairytale. Thanks Sam! We’re going to put that out in the next couple weeks.

Maurice Sendak on the Origins of Fantasy

Published June 19, 2009 by Graham

At the heart of Sendak’s brilliance is his unforced spontaneousness as a writer. His most epic works: Where the Wild Things Are, In The Night Kitchen, and Outside Over There play out like dreams, discarding the patronizing narrative contrivances of less intuitive children’s literature. But they’re not completely disorganized surrealist romps. Like dreams, they incorporate everyday banal experiences as props and stage dressing in an absurd theatrical puzzle revealing the answer to an unresolved problem from our waking lives.
