Music meets mutilation. gun-shy is an incredible song with a surreal video that almost appears to be made with animated GIFs.
From Grizzly Bear’s site:
The idea came from a question:- if the creative energy of any living organism could be seen, what would it look like? Ed, Daniel, T and Bear demonstrate where their creative energy is located by extracting their hair, nails, skin, sweat, tears and blood. This is an invitation for a very rare glimpse of what creative energy could look like on a molecular level, if it could be seen.
Is this is where their music comes from?
The 2nd half of the video takes on a more metaphysical or alchemy-like shift. We see the impact they have on their environment, throbbing leaves, boiling a river, steam, hovering in air, lightning bug-like sparkles in the afternoon sun etc.
This turning point in the story came out of a very creative conversation I had with Daniel Rossen and belief I have and I think the band share is everything is connected.
In the filming of this clip we used various scientifically explainable methods known to the natural world, soap film interference, rapid crystallization, splitting of the light spectrum etc to create the impression that these visual phenomena actually comes from them.
Of course this hypothesis would not hold much weight in the various scientific circles, but, it is a good question to ask. Science has tried unsuccessfully to explain where creativity comes from. Why some humans have a creative drive and others do not, why this person can draw but does not have a musical ear, or why this person is better suited to the clarinet and not the guitar, and why some people can play every instrument they come into contact with.
Two Men In Love is the third and final video in the video trilogy of NUDE by The Irrepressibles. Includes a video collage created with submissions from gay fans from all over the world. The video will continue to transform becoming filled with more submissions over 2013. If you’re gay and want to be in the video, send an “MP4″ video of your kiss to firstname.lastname@example.org
Martyn Ashton takes the £10k carbon road bike used by Team Sky’s Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish for a ride with a difference. With a plan to push the limits of road biking as far as his lycra legs would dare, Martyn looked to get his ultimate ride out of the awesome Pinarello Dogma 2. This bike won the 2012 Tour de France – surely it deserves a Road Bike Party!
Shot in various locations around the UK and featuring music from ‘Sound of Guns’. Road Bike Party captures some of the toughest stunts ever pulled on a carbon road bike.

Haley’s new trademark may be “Let’s Go Walkin’” in light of the recent #pardongate2012… So, I had to revisit an oldie-but-goodie and make an addition (complete with Comic Sans).
