The FWA Newsletter

I just signed-up to receive The FWA‘s monthly newsletter (sign up here). Their August issue just came out and it contains loads of goodies; site of the month, video of the month, viral of the month (I love Dexter), the best flash sites ever, interviews and even some cool wallpaper (pictured).

Fauxreel

Fauxreel

Here’s a local (Toronto) spin on the Banksy identity story. CBC Radio’s Q show interviewed Toronto-based Fauxreel (AKA Dan Bergeron) about his street art including the Vespa S campaign he did via Dentsu Canada. Listen to the podcast here. Read the article on Dan in Toronto Life, referred to in the interview, here. More of Dan’s great work is posted on Fauxreel.ca.

How to make chicken

How to make chicken

Synchronicity – I was just talking about the bird dance last night and here is the song in this viral. Shots says it’s for Nando’s chicken (yum). It’s fun, weird and a bit gross (the guy with the sauce) all at once. It doesn’t make me want Nando’s chicken, but it made me talk about it. Found on Shots’ Cut & Paste.

Grace Jones creeps me out

Grace Jones creeps me out

Here’s what’s being called a comeback video for Grace Jones. If I were little, I think this video would give me nightmares. When she says she’s a “man eating machine” I actually picture her at a table literally feasting on a man – with big silver cutlery. Yep, especially with the guttural sounds she makes at the end (watch it to the end, it’s worth it). Scooped from Boards.

Pencil Rebel

I personally do not have a lot of time to play on interactive sites like Pencil Rebel. But the five or six minutes I spent on it were really fun. Pencil Rebel is interactive and mixed media by Grzegorz Kozakiewicz. I found it on TheFWA. Check it out – if you can spare some time.

Wrangler – We Are Animals

Wrangler - We Are Animals

Here’s the latest broadcast spot for Wrangler (yep the cowboy jeans are being made chic) via FFL Paris. View the print campaign here. Scooped from Boards and from AdLand. I expect to see a lot of Wranglers this weekend when I attend the Rockyford Rodeo in Alberta (trivia – some of Brokeback Mountain was shot there). I also like how this still flows into the next post.

Come into the closet

Come into the closet

Forsman & Bodenfors has created another great site for Ikea. Although it’s all in Swedish, you don’t need to understand the language to enjoy this entertaining & informative (product/price incorporation is great) site. I love the music by Dead Mono too. Check it out here. Check out their previous Ikea Bedroom site here.
