Hyper real

The video in my last post feels sedate to me because I live in that future… I think I now know how the viewers of the time may have felt watching it.. I’ve just come across this and it scares me.

You’ve changed, for the better

The bad thing about Shazam on the iphone is it makes it waaay too easy to find out what cool tune is playing in the backround of the pub. You can not only find the song and the album, but follow the band on twitter and download it all from itunes. The good thing is it opens a whole new vista of artists you may never have heard of, or realised you knew.

It was thanks to a Shazam moment on a tv ad that I came across Sia (late to the party aparently!) and this delightfully cooky video 🙂
