LBB’s Addison Capper brings you six brain-busters to end your week on.
1. Sir David Attenborough’s Curling Commentary
This made my week. Just when you thought it’s not possible to love the British broadcaster anymore, he goes ahead and lends his legendary voice to this recent clip of female curling. It’s got everything we’ve come to expect and love from an Attenborough documentary – herds, rivers, nests and some ‘thrusting nuts’. Check it out at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/winter-olympics/26257895
2. Tap Project
This amazing new app from UNICEF and Droga5 New York effectively allows you to do a lot of good by doing very little. Whether it’s email, text, selfies or Snapchat, most of us are guilty of overusing our phones. But with Tap Project, UNICEF will help donate clean water to those who need it in exchange for you leaving your life companion alone for a bit. So log on to UNICEFTapProject.org and put it down!
I love food (partial to the odd rib, as you can see above). And I make little effort to hide the fact that I also love cheesy food shows. Whether Jamie Oliver’s being ‘pukka’ or Barefoot Contessa is hosting yet another of her arduous, ‘totally fantastic’ dinner parties, I will watch it. And Tastemade lets me pretend that I’ve a little food show of my own. The DIY video app makes it wonderfully easy to document foodie adventures into bite-size films to share with your friends and the rest of the Internet. And that makes a self-proclaimed boaster like me pretty happy. Download at: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/tastemade/id635281031?mt=8
4. R-Rated Films Get Kid Friendly Transformation
Pixar artist Josh Cooley makes grown-up films kid-friendly with these illustrations. Now you don't have to wait so long to bestow the delights of Pulp Fiction, Fargo, The Blues Brothers and A Clockwork Orange on your children. View more of his work at: http://www.cooley.bigcartel.com/
5. Flying Cyrus
Since its removal from app stores, imitations of Flappy Birds have been swooshing onto smartphones. My favourite is Flying Cyrus, based on Miley and that flailing tongue of hers. It’s currently sitting atop of Apple’s free apps chart and with little surprise. After all, it combines everything the Internet longs for. Minus cats. Download it at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flying-cyrus-wrecking-ball/id819754949?mt=
6. Julio Bashmore 'Peppermint' feat. Jessie Ware
Blinkink's Noah Harris delivers an unruly feast of stop frame animation in this promo for Julio Bashmore. Taken from the DJ's forthcoming debut album, it's inspired by the evolution of house music and features a giant pair of clapping hands personifying an almost God-like creature.
