Musician and blogger, Amanda Palmer, gave this TED talk back…
It’s that time of the week again and I have some pretty awesome finds to share with you. Take a look at this weeks links, there’s something for creatives, technology nuts and even the aspiring photographer. 😀
The title says it all. I haven’t seen photographs as majestic as these in quite a while. Elena Shumilova uses lighting and colors that are really very beautiful. Please take a look, you won’t regret it.
Another photography link, but this one is very different. Photographer Ulric Collette uses two subjects, both genetically related to each other, and fuses their faces together with interesting results. The similarities and differences are fascinating.
I really recommend reading this article if you are a writer, blogger or student of any kind. I use a number of the apps mentioned, including FREE programs such as Evernote and Hemmingway app. Some great suggestions here!
This is very eerie. Composer Jim Wilson has taken the sounds of crickets and slowed them down, the results are both cool and creepy. Not only did Wilson slow down the sounds but he did it in such a way that the crickets sound is stretched out to the same speed as if the crickets life span were the same as a humans. And the freaky thing but it… the crickets ended up sounding like humans!
In a world dominated by extroversion, this is a lovely read for introverts and non-introverts alike. It gives a clearer idea of what it’s like to be an introvert, taking away the stigma, while at the same time clarifying some common misbeliefs.
I’m ending my weekly links with this piece. I dedicate it to anyone out there working to build a creative skill. This is a motivational listen from the prospective of someone who has ‘made it’, with some wonderful things to keep in mind.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post. I love reading and responding to everyone’s comments, so feel free to leave a comment of your own.
