♥ DIY + ♥ IKEA = ♥♥ IKEA HACKER

After posting only videos I decided to share a link today.
I don't need to tell people who visited our 666 flat in Amsterdam how much I love IKEA. The more astonishing that I didn't know  IKEA HACKER by now.

YouTube Play

I ♥ Modern Art. Usually I skip the video art part when I visit a museum. Because the videos are mostly quite strange to me and very often they are dark and violent in various ways. Actually I find Modern Art is a bit too unhappy in general - but that's a different story. So it was a bit out of normal when I was attracted by a news saying that the Guggenheim and YouTube started a biennial of creative video called YouTube Play.



I went through the whole playlist of the top 25. I have to confess that even though I found them all unique and enormous creative I leaped some of them after a while because they still didn't match the things I'd like to watch. But maybe this movies make me reserve some time for video art next time I'll go to Palais deTokyo or the Beaubourg.

Berlin calling

Some days ago we watched "Berlin Calling". A great movie! It generates an easily interpreted graphic image of the negative results of drug abuse but without lecturing or wagging a finger.



This movie also introduced me to the great music of Paul Kalkbrenner and his brother Fritz.
