This week’s music video is far from being vintage. It’s just a plain music video that uses not-so-plain effects and planning.
We love vintage-looking and sounding music videos as much as you do but in this case, we’re willing to make a quick change up. The music video for “This Too Shall Pass” from the band OK Go starts with nothing but a whirring sound and showing OK Go band member Tom Nordwind wearing a paint splattered white jumpsuit. Norwind then bumps a red toy truck into a domino formation and planned chaos ensues. Watching the resulting explosion of cool mechanics and music is more than entertaining.
The elaborate set and planning for the music video pays off with more than just musicality from the band. The video for This Too Shall Pass is a theatrical feat even for a short 3 minute 54 second clip. Taking cues from Rube Goldberg and his amazing contraptions, the builders at Syyn Labs made sure that every bump, slide and crash would trigger another string of chaotic quirks.
Syyn Labs is an LA-based arts and technology collective that does these amazing and entertaining science projects that employ the help of crowds of people. But hey, let’s not forget the band for cooking up the plan and pledging to get hit in the face by a blast of paint.
Just watch the video and enjoy the whirlwind of falling objects, pendulum sledgehammers and paint cannons.

As far as mystery thrillers of recent pasts go, The Drums certainly hits the right spots with the dark and old TV effects with this music video for "Days." But don't let that scare you -- allow yourself to be entertained by the trippy, youthful sound of this Brooklyn-based band.
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
The spying globes on Teufelsberg are the not-so-secret insider tip for Berlin’s urban ruins and interesting freak show architecture. Even if you’re reluctant, one thing's for sure: the “Devil’s Mountain” is just plain awesome. The torn-up globe structures of the former military territory are just waiting to be conquered by lomographers… so what are you waiting for?
Are you annoyed by Newton's rings that appear when you're scanning your Lomo'Instant shots? I am, so I came up with the idea to create something to ensure that the photos don't touch the glass, but aren't too far away from it either because of the sharpness.
You can tell that someone had a fun and memorable road trip just by looking at his or her travel photos, and today's awesome album is a testament to that! If you're not yet planning for a summer road trip, you sure will be after flipping through the photos you'll find after the jump!
November is almost here and so is winter -- we might as well embrace both. This coming month we have the Lomo'Instant Launch Party (that everyone should attend because it's going to be FUN!) with a follow up workshop, a La Sardina light painting session, and a planned trip to the Winter Wonderland with the LC-A+ to get us in the mood for the holiday season!
Aside from the fact that Ubud is a must-visit tourist spot in Bali, it is also the perfect place to relax and get inspired. There, you’ll see and feel something different. Staying there for a month in 2012 made me discover good places to visit. If ever you'll be in Bali for a holiday, don't forget to visit Ubud. Now, I shall take you on a quick visit to this town!
