I love musical visualizations.  You know, those computer-generated animations where you can actually see the music?
Without going all Pink Floyd on you, it’s rare to find choreographed videos that sync up perfectly with the music behind them.  Automatic visualizers are a dime a dozen (iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.), but great, spot-on videos are still hard to come by.
Don’t get me wrong, automatic visualizers are still pretty cool with the right settings, but the animations below make them seem cheap in comparison.

So, put on some headphones, turn it up and enjoy!

MUTEMATH – Reset

Autechre – Gantz Graf

Venetian Snares – Szamár Madár

The Firmament: Constellation (Ion The Prize)
This final one is awesomely nerdy.  Not really abstract, but it’s too funny to pass up.  I saw some Animusic stuff at a hotel while staying in Vegas, and it blew me away.
Animusic – Starship Groove

Still here?  Do you want to see people do this sort of thing instead of inanimate objects and oscilloscopes?  Check these guys and gals out.

The crises and madness of Jon Arbuckle

Garfield sucks and so does just about every comic you find in your newspaper. I don’t know why newspapers bother printing comics as I’m sure they’re not only expensive but also they suck. Just looking at one makes me pissed off.

In the United States, comics originally printed as a tactic in the Hearst v. Pulitzer newspaper wars. The immigrants who populated the big cities couldn’t read English but they could appreciate the comics and would read whichever newspaper had the best comics. Why they didn’t simply go online, open the local newspaper in Google Chrome and have the browser translate is beyond me.

Anyhoo, today we still have the comics in the paper taking up ink and paper which makes the existence of comics both foolhardy and wastedful. That said, if it wasn’t for shite comics like Garfield, we wouldn’t be graced with such genius as Garfield minus Garfield which actually improves upon the original.

The concept is to take a Garfield comic and remove the titular feline. It’s genius and see for yourself below.
