Chinatown Fair in NYC used to serve as an East Coast mecca for fighting game fans as one of the last independently-owned video arcades in the country. It closed earlier this year, but through the work of two filmmakers the spirit of the scene lives on. Mark Hayes’ short film […]
While I was browsing Joey Roth‘s site for more information on his recent re-release of these beautiful ceramic speakers, I noticed this post from earlier in the year — his prototype of a computer mouse made from wool felt, teak and aluminum, shown as part of the Use Me exhibition […]
I remember looking across the street at Mr. Chows restaurant from my local watering hole all the time, back when my office was near Tribeca and Id pop over for an after-work drink. The place always looked so old not in the sense of being rundown, but like it […]

Directed by Tim Nackashi, the concept is described as a humanoid’s ‘endless digital daydream,’ and includes 3D renderings and what Nackashi calls ‘light-painting.’ Very interesting stuff!
The Girl Walk project was still in Kickstarter funding mode when we posted about it in February, but its now come to fruition and Gothamist has the premiere chapter of this 75-minute long film set to the entire Girl Talk album All Day. Wild Combination wisely decided to split up […]
