Amazing Jelly Bean Stop-Motion

This music video for Kina Grannis’ song “In Your Arms”, just blows me away. It uses stop motion with Kina in front of a jelly bean background.

Each background is made up of jelly-beans laid out by hand to create the video’s amazing look. This crazy project took 22 months of shooting, 30 people, 2,460 frames, 1,357 hours, and 288,000 jelly beans. What’s even more amazing is that all of the shots with Kina are not created with a green screen — she’s there for every shot.

The making of video is also pretty interesting:

Sam Roberts

Last night some friends and I went to see Sam Robert’s concert here in Lethbridge.

Here is a short sample of the concert (shot on an iPhone by a friend of mine, Michael Warf)

It was a great concert. We all had a super good time.

The Rural Alberta Advantage

I’ve only been to one Rural Alberta Advantage concert but I have to say, I love that band. They’ve got this great music video for their new song, ‘Stamp’, which I think you’ll enjoy:

Aggressively Happy Music

Mefi user Rory Marinich asks the community for suggestions of “aggressively happy music”.

The kind of music that punches happiness into you no matter how much you don’t want it to be there. The sort that explodes into spiky neon flowers.

My first thought was this gem by ELO (made famous to me from the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind soundtrack): Mr. Blue Sky

The list is full of songs that will demand you cheer up immediately.
