Still state of the (street) art

Filmmaker, author and photographer Henry Chalfant, the director of much-loved early-1980s hip hop street art documentary, Style Wars, has just launched a new website that is set to feature his astonishing Big Grafitti Archive. Henry’s portfolio features countless breathtaking shots that effectively helped to communicate grafitti art to the rest of the world, and he plans to make the Big Graffiti Archive available as a DVD set. That’s one for the OG Christmas list, then. Click on the image above to check the subway car in all of its glory.

Another ingredient in the crucible of hip hop, New York’s street gang culture, is explored in Rubble Kings, a new documentary from director Shan Nicholson that’s currently on the film festival circuit. Check the trailer below…

2010 Social Networking World Map

Every world needs a map so why should the world of social networking be any different? Bear in mind that just five years ago Facebook wouldn’t have even been on here! Great stats and actually made me laugh (although I am a proper nerd, so keep those comedy expectations low Muggles). Click image to embiggen…

Gorgeous interactive World Cup calendar

Very pleasing Flash World Cup calendar.

A blogging game changer

It’s great when you find out about something that makes your mind start running away with what this new discovery means to you.

Posterous.com is exactly one of those things, that’s already changed the way I think about how I’m going to write blogs, and I only discovered it ten minutes ago. It’s that good.

All you do to make a blog is simply send an email to post@posterous.com with words/pictures/videos/MP3s/files – or a combination – and pretty much instantly a mail is sent back to you with a link to all the stuff you’ve sent, as a blog.

You can then either stay as a casual blogger without signing up – posterous automatically collates posts on your blog whenever you mail them from the same email address – or you can claim the blog, signing in and taking advantage of being able to change the looks and so on.

Its very clever stuff, and well worth checking out for a few minutes.
