Phase Magazine 3/30/06 Description:
a quarterly digital publication which brings you visual and written experiences in the areas of whatever, distributed in PDF format
Its just launched Premier Issue has over 30 tasty pages around the theme of Brainstorm. "Anything at all remotely related to the idea of the brainstorm. Or not." Photography, music, art, and even a celeb interview are included in the PDF magazine. The collective says its goal is "to deliver a compelling and unique experience with each new issue." Looking forward to seeing what the next phase brings (the theme is Community)... [pixelsurgeon]
Grumpymonk 3/26/06 Description:
In one of the more interesting about pages I've seen lately, Josh talks about where he grew up. "Nothing but endless hills and valleys covered with sun-burned waist high grass and cactus." He goes on to explain how he may have become cynical. "Then they bulldozed everything down all the trees, poisoned the rabbits, built a golf course, and threw up thousands of units of tract housing." A self-taught photographer now based in Brooklyn, he started with digital just a few years ago but is now "devoted" to "traditional photography." Josh shoots a lot of performance pics among other things – some outstanding people pictures...

a personal photo collection
"Currently, the photographs suffer from a serious lack of meaningful organization. Most are organized simply by place and/or date. Perhaps I will come to understand the photographs I've taken better, and then be able to organize them more clearly." Marc's collection spans from 1999 to 2003 and seems to me more organized than he says. I particularly like his Holgas and everyday shots but there's a lot more than that to enjoy here – pics are small but impressive and interesting...

mixed audiovisual 'musical journeys' (Flash/Quicktime)
For a cool musical/visual diversion, luigi&luigi present 2 series of video mixes – Mondovision and Drums Unlimited – view online or download for viewing on your computer (640x480) or iPod (320x240). I had a problem extracting the larger version of Drums Unlimited, though the error may have been due to something on my end. Some great footage – highly entertaining in my opinion. [French'N'Fresh]
The Visual Dictionary 3/11/06 Description:
a visual exploration of words in the real world
"I have no idea why I keep making work for myself like this.." said Webponce when he set out to create this "nice little corner of the internet" back in October. "I think it's to put off doing real work, but it keeps me off the streets to say the least." His real name is Matthew Knight and the idea behind the site is to "find some great shots of typography, signage, graffiti, number plates, tattoos, who knows?" There's words everywhere and the site recently hit the 500 imagesmark. Matthew says it all "should be visually stimulating and interesting" and envisions how the database of word pictures might be used in various applications. I'll just add that it's fun (and downright cool).
edfella.com 3/5/06 Description:
works of artist/graphic designer Edward Fella
I've been watching this one for a while and though Ed still has "to find something to place here" in various sections, the under construction - coming soon graphics are so damn tasty all by themselves, I keep coming back. And each time I do, more art is showing up in the stack of stuff on the home page and some of the other sections. Ed's a veteran artist and graphic designer now in academia – what a unique sense of color and style!
move-me.com 3/3/06 Description:
home for dance videos created in the touring 'move-me' video booth (Flash)
It looks like a old-time photobooth but the move-me booth is equipped for video instead. It's periodically moved to different venues and intended to provide "a unique opportunity for anyone to experience being a performer working with some of the world's most exciting dance-makers and to have their work seen on the world wide web." The user selects a choreographer, receives a few pointers, and then records their own 2-minute dance video. "Make it a performance. Surprise, delight and intrigue us." The site is the place to view the dances and though there seems to be a big problem with the volume, which hopefully will be corrected soon (for now, you'll have to crank it up to hear it), the assortment of spontaneous performances is most amusing. Cool concept. Have fun... [RES72]
Joe Cunningham's Photo Journal 3/2/06 Description:
personal photo journal based in Minnesota
Two similar photos, one Joe's most recent and the other, taken about a month ago – both very cool shots thanks to the new camera, which Joe says was like "getting a guitar once owned by Clapton." The universe answered Joe's request for an upgrade. Other shots like Three in flight and Into the sun, feel to me as if the universe was answering my request for something a little different today. Besides the photo journal and its glimpses into Joe's life (tell Lori I like Zeppelin too), there's also several series among his Projects that simply rock...;~)) [The Regulars]
