Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Canadian men raised $32 million for movember’s annual prostate cancer research fundraiser, more than any other country in the world! (Australia $22.5 mil, US $12 mil). In honor of this great achievement Electric Pixel brings you Movember Thanky Stanky, a quick mixtape by our resident beat master, DJ A-Factor. Music drives the creative brains at EP so last night we unleashed the A-Factor behind the 1’s & 2’s to put together a sample of beats we were feelin’ this past month.

Kanye West Runaway Short Film

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Kanye teamed up with Hype Williams to put together this 35 min short film that premiered in Paris last week. There are some nice visuals to go with a simple story of a scantily clad Phoenix crashing to earth and then being introduced to our society by Kanye. The music is the gem though, showcasing tracks off of his upcoming album ‘My Dark Twisted Fantasy’ Leave it to Kanye to once again do something different. Haters keep hating, but I love his artistic work.

Kanye West Album Cover Banned

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

So Yeezy’s new album is set to drop this fall and the word on the street is that def jam has already banned the cover. A nude black devil being straddled by a naked angel all bordered in red. Below are Kanye’s reaction tweets, jokes…

Kanye: Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!! Ima tweet it in a few…

Kanye: Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!

Kanye: In the 70s album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now.

Kanye: So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings

Kanye: In all honesty … I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers

Throwback Thursday’s : Vintage Stop Motion

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

For this week’s Throwback Thursday’s post we pulled out this old gem from our EP vaults. It’s the summer of 2005, myself and close friend, and photographer, Dominic Gouin have been simmering on trying out some stop-motion video. My college roomates are in town for the Grand Prix, three jokers up for anything. Dominic and I need to do some tests, the boys are up for anything. A bottle of Alize later I had the random snippits chopped up in iMovie synced to the sounds of Kanye’s summer anthem ‘Diamonds are Forever’ The video is super ghetto with no scripting or choreography but it will make you chuckle. 748 pics in 4 mins.
