PBS Arts: Off Book

PBS Arts has a video series called “Off Book” studying art in today’s world. They even have a tumblr!

Off Book trains a lens on the lives of various artists working in interactive art, online collective art, fashion design, typography, indie music, videogame art, and more.  In three-to-five-minute video snapshots of creators who ride the cutting edge, viewers can explore the process, motivation, meaning, and relevance behind their work.

I think everyone loves the Mad Men opening credits. I like the visual aspect of the Breaking Bad opening credits, but the music is annoying to me. On the other hand, I love the music in the The Office and the 30Rock credits.  In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I did not understand the significance of the opening credits (comment on youtube said they were supposed to represent Lisbeth’s nightmares), they were just weird to me and in a different style than the film, but I liked the music.

After seeing Exit Through the Gift Shop, I learned that a) that I am not the type of person willing to break laws or scale buildings for art and b) you can make a lot of money if you are.

My favorite GIF tumblr is #whatshouldwecallme. I die laughing at the titles they make up.
