We have long been following the musings of Chris Hadfield. Astounding us again on the eve of his return to Earth, the Canadian astronaut released a beautifully made video of himself performing a 1969 classic – Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’.
Singing “I’m floating in a most peculiar way” whilst actually floating up in space, Hadfield shows us again how he has won the hearts of the Twitterverse.
He was even badass enough to organise an impromptu space walk by Americans Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn, who replaced an ammonia pump on the station’s P6 truss.
After five months in space, he has safely returned home from the ISS and will be relieved by Russian cosmonaut Pavel Vinogradov. Sounds like he’s really enjoying some common earthly pleasures like a taking hot showers, and chilling in a field in Kazakstan. The usual.
TSU! is the latest solo project of James Hakan Dedeoglu. Born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, Hakan has been writing and performing music since 1998. Hakan is also a member of alternative rock band Ricochet and psychedelic pop duo OAK. In 2011 Hakan started his new solo acoustic project TSU!, focusing on atmospheric and folky instrumental songs. This video made me feel all warm and comfy inside, the feeling you get when in your happy place that you call home. I’m a film lover and the nostalgic effect in this video is created through the film-like feel. You can have a listen to the TSU! album on Soundcloud.

Known for his trippy YouTube videos, such as Welcome to Kitty City, it’s no secret that Cyriak knows what he’s doing, even if it’s just for fun and games. British musician/DJ, Bonobo decided to use this to his advantage when he got hold of Cyriak to create his lastest music video, ‘Cirrus’. Although he sticks to his true style with some added old-school footage, he showcases his abilities on a much higher scale, unlike anything he has done before.

Considering Sky Fall came out recently our interest has been peaked in Bond arena again. Herring & Haggis created a beautiful project where they screened a Bond movie and designed a poster every day for 21 days. They call it a typographical and color exercise, each design utilizes a map to highlight the key location from 007′s mission.. Which is your favourite? Poster and/or movie? See all of them here.
We love how they write about themselves:
Maria, aka Herring, was born & raised in Sweden. Clif, aka Haggis, traces his roots back to Scotland. Together, we’re the creative duo Herring & Haggis and love nothing more than to dream — and then do everything in our powers (yes … powers) to shape that dream into a reality.
