Fodder for the poster-loving soul:

Our Mother Tongue is Music

Seen on Rakesh’s Rahman Se:

A live rendition in four languages: “Anjali Anjali” in Telugu, “Dheeme Dheeme” and “Kal Nahin Ta” in Hindi, “Netru Illada” and “Katre” in Tamil, and Rahman all the way on his grand piano.

And if that appeals to you, don’t forget to purse the older posts.

It’s About Light

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt about the visual aspects of photography, it’s that nothing is as important as light. It’s all about the light.

The Pipeline

The Pipeline is an interview show with innovators, designers, geeks, newsmakers, and people who create things.

I’ve been following this podcast since Episode 1, and each show has been immensely interesting. Some of them rank amongst the most inspiring interviews I’ve ever seen, heard or read. If you have any interest in the web and its community, or are passionate about making stuff, I highly recommend this show. Great host, excellent questions, and of course, an amazing line-up.

SXSW Film Design Awards logo

2010 SXSW Film Awards: Excellence in Poster Design

“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” they say. What about movies?

I have a thing for movie posters. This collection comprises most of the entrants to the SXSW film poster design award for 2010. On their design alone (I haven’t seen almost any of these movies), ones that stood out were Wake, Earthling, I Close My Eyes and Walk Away, Audrey the Trainwreck, Equestrian Sexual Response, Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam, The Living Room of the Nation and Girls Named Pinky. The winner? Feeder.
