"Creativity is intelligence having fun."

- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

I’ve just discovered Yuumei's fantastic new webcomic called “Fisheye Placebo” about a group of young people (hackers mostly) putting up resistance to an authoritarian regime constantly watching and restricting its citizens (on the internet and in real life).

I just love Yuumei’s backgrounds, her use of light and how she’s able to tell a suspensful, funny and thought-provoking story at the same time. This is top notch!

Check out her blog here: http://tapastic.com/episode/2139

CGP Grey's razor-sharp analysis of the current trend of robotization/automatization: “Humans need not apply.”

What will the future will look like when computers and bots take over? What will humans do when they are “unemployable through no fault of their own”?

Sia has done it again: She’s written, produced and performed the best song of the year! Check out the official video to her stunning hymn-like confession “Chandelier” (feat. Maddie Ziegler).

What a tear jerker - but how could I not fall in love with it: The Postmodern Jukebox has done it again and produced the best cover of “Say Something” (by A great big world) featuring Hudson Thames.

Imo the best cover of Lorde’s “Team”: Puddles (Sad Clown) and the Postmodern Jukebox.

Another fantastic cover by the Postmodern Jukebox: “Burn” (by Ellie Goulding). Go, girls!

This cover of “All about that bass” has made my day 7 days in a row now! You just gotta love Kate Davis' rendition of Meghan Trainor's fun song playing her own bass quite literally. I'm going to post a whole series of fantastic covers by the “Postmodern Jukebox”, just in case you've never heard of them till now. Seriously, check out their youtube channel, they are amazing: http://www.youtube.com/user/ScottBradleeLovesYa/videos?flow=list&view=0&sort=dd&live_view=500

I’m infinitely sad that I wasn’t part of the experience when Yeasayer spontaneously performed their songs “2080” and “Tightrope” in a private apartment with friends and strangers in Paris. This is so, so good. Love everything about it - including the neighbour complaining about the noise, haha.

One of the best covers of Beyoncé’s “Halo” I’ve heard so far: Check out The Gadsdens. Stunning!

Lovely Lykke Li has a new album out called “I never learn”. Check out her first single “No rest for the wicked”.
