Hulk within a Hulk

Fractal Hulk

I came across this image while browsing around Peter Berkman’s tumblr (one of muh faves) and decided to go deeper.

Polarity Song

“Life can be so overrated but you are so entertaining’.
I won’t be manipulated just so I can get on through to your green grass under skies.
There’s no one like you; there’s no time like now…
Embrace the polarity of life and all the good and bad we share.
Engage the mystery of why we are the love in life we live.”

Do you guys remember Synesthesia? It was a super weird/rad little music video we posted back in February filled with food, cats and LOLWAT directed by Terri Timely. If you haven’t seen it yet, go on ahead...we’ll wait patiently until everyone’s ready.

This – Terri’s latest – is a collaboration with knit/crochet/craft/‘soft sculpture’ super-hero, Sarah Applebaum and, like Synesthesia, is suitably far-out. It depicts a hidden world populated by crochet-knit-mummy-wrapped bipeds within a typical thrift store/flea market who abduct dispassionate shoppers as they browse through an assortment of discarded detritus from the late-70s/80s/early-90s. The surface aesthetic could easily be categorized (and summarily dismissed as) ‘hipster kitsch’ and, though I’d concede the assessment, there’s an earnestness there – no doubt helped by the Caleb Pate and Nephi Evans’ lyrics – that squashes any cheap forays into self-indulgent irony. There’s redemption here; from within this impersonal commercial wasteland comes salvation whose identity springs not from aesthetic but from source: it’s the hand-crafted things that provide the creative energy and warmth.

Oh and it’s super-fucking strange, too; we love shit like this. The music is dope as well. Top marks to Seventeen Evergreen for creating original, compelling tunes and to Lucky Number Music for supporting this kind of art. Enjoy!

If you’re into this you might want to check out Lighthouse, too. Just sayin’.

Today’s dose of LOLWAT is served up by stop motion animator Max Winston who completed this project while studying at CalArts. Get ready for some bizarre whacked-out horror!

Cheers to Sam Lillard for another fantastic suggestion!

Going to the store

We have Ryan Fitzgerald to thank for sending in this David Lewandowski created weirdness. Strangely enough, David is the same guy who created the fantastic title sequence in Tron Legacy.

Café allongé

An overactive imagination and a raging sex drive can lead to some bizarre and inventive visions. Kudos to french director Maxime Paccalet and the talented folks at Kawanimation for putting this together. Cheers!

Truckers Delight

First off, this video is definitely NSFW so if you’re checking this out at your 9-5 you might wanna save it for later. That being said, this pixel-crafted wonder of a music video by Jérémie Périn for Flairs is a nostalgic revisit to the days when 16-bit electronic diversions reigned supreme.  If you’ve got an iOS device and want to take control of the lewd trucker himself then click here to get in on the fun.

Put It Back Down

This bizarre wonderland of trippy visuals for ‘Put It Back Down’ by Seymour Bits was conceived and directed by Michiel ten Horn and Maarten J. Berkers. Lights down, sound up, trip-out. Enjoy!

My little piece of privacy

Niklas Roy, who describes himself as “an inventor of useless things”, created this robotic curtain to shield himself, “from nosey looks of pedestrians passing by.” Simple and engaging – I dig it!

Found via the infinitely excellent dvdp.

Parrot is hardcore

Not trippy, but absolutely funny. Better than the original? No contest, in my opinion.

Marcel The Shell With Shoes On

This video has been seen 2,827,715 times but not once by me yet – so I’m really in debt to Mary for passing this funny, silly little gem along to put up on the site.

Do you have something awesome to share that you think would be perfect for The Tripatorium?  Send it along!  Any and all suggestions are welcome!
