Customizable plus who doesn’t love to color??? More pics after the jump.
As I was mourning the loss of my missing Sennheisser PX100s and looking for new headphones, I came across these by designer Ji Woong that I thought would be perfect (it even has volume control!). It seems like a great solution to those iPod headphones that I swear tangle themselves to spite me while in my pockets.. Too bad its only a concept…..

A film I produced over the summer, Four Little Piggies, is screening at New York University’s First Run Festival this Saturday (aka tomorrow) and everyone’s invited!
Four Little Piggies, starring Louis Logic and featuring J-Zone, details the story of a toy crane machine salesman trying to locate his missing finger at a bowling alley after a wacky encounter with the daughter of a prospective client.

This went up yesterday and made its circuit around the blogosphere but it looks too amazing not to post so check it out here.
If you haven’t heard about it yet, director Spize Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) worked with writer Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius, You Shall Know Our Velocity) on the film adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s children’s book classic, Where the Wild Things Are.

SITTIN’ ON A MILLION (2008, 26 minutes) presents these stories in all their contradictory glory, alongside vintage erotica, reenactments, and street performances asks us to consider the role of memory and imagination in creating history, and reminds us about all those ordinary, extraordinary people erased from the official record.

Bernice Perry: Queen of Sinatraland (2008, 17 minutes)
Bernice Perry is an 83 year-old songwriter who has been producing her own public access television show for 37 years. Her life and work, inspired by Frank Sinatra has a haunting quality that forces us to ask questions about definitions of celebrity, nostalgia, and reality.

Gail Albert Halaban: Out My Window
Exhibition: February 5- March 28th 2009
Brooklyn, Snow, 2007 © Gail Albert Halaban
In her latest series, Out My Window, Gail Albert Halaban has ventured into the private spaces of New York City, photographing its inhabitants and the views that define their lives. In a world framed by windows, there is both an intimacy and remoteness in the proximity of so many strangers. Though the archetype of the photographer training her lens on her neighbor is easily associated with the voyeurism of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, the experience Albert Halaban records is far less menacing. In as much as we are aware of our display, the city is also on display to us. Window and camera are inextricably bound in the framing of a world.
Exhibition on View:
Robert Mann Gallery
210 Eleventh Avenue, Floor 10
New York, New York
Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11-6pm
If you can’t physically make it to the gallery, you can also view some of the photos in the online exhibition.
