WW170: LOLIWARE, THE tUnE-yArDs, AND BIG HERO 6

HOWDY!
Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday!!
Here are 5 things I love this week - I hope you enjoy them….

1.) Big Hero 6 is a Disney film coming up (inspired by the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name). Set in the fictional city of  San Fransokyo (San Francisco + Tokyo).  a young robotics prodigy and his self-created robot Baymax uncover a criminal plot and pull together a team of inexperienced crime-fighters to solve the mystery surrounding the crime.

Last year, they released this concept art:




…..then….the good folks at Mar-sney (that is my Marvel/Disney made up name) have come up with this poster…….



NOW…..we got this trailer:


(try THIS LINK if you are not getting it…)

2.) I CANNOT get this song out of my head!!!!!!!! Thank you Tune-Yards!


"Water Fountain" can also be seen on their website! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
The Tune-Yards (tUnE-yArDs) is the music project of New England native Merrill Garbus. When performing live, Garbus creates drum loops on the spot, and layers these with ukulele, and vocals, in addition to electric bass played by Nate Brenner. The Whokill (stylized as w h o k i l l) tour has added a saxophone section, consisting of Matt Nelson and Noah Bernstein.
GRREEEEEAAAAT!!!!
Admit it, you are tapping your toes right now!

3.)  Ok….so I like this……...“Luminous Giants” created by lighting designer Dean Skira. In collaboration with Uljanik Shipyard (one of the oldest working shipyards in the world) Dean transforms the shipyard's cranes into a site-specific installation featuring choreographed light and music displays. Skira and a group of technicians illuminated the cranes with LED spotlights!! It's like Christmas!! 



Here's what he says about it…..
 “The industrial revolution in the early 19th century has brought us some new ‘monuments’ which still stand and move every day in the gentle dance of steel, helping to create some of the greatest commercial ships ever built. This dance has been going on for almost 200 years and I wanted to create a colorful stage on which these giants could perform. "



Cool, huh?

4.) Who needs a cocktail??? I DO!! The Way We See The World brings you these edible gelatin-based cups called Loliware


Sip your drink- then eat your cup!! LOLIWARE’s artisanal flavor and unique texture enliven every occasion. Made entirely of vegan, biodegradable ingredients, LOLIWARE is a delicious alternative to ‘disposable’ cups destined for the landfill. Put down the plastic and enjoy the future of sustainability: 100% Biodegr(edible).

Loliware is only available currently in one flavour (CITRUS) more are said to launch seasonally – the next one coming out in the Fall of this year.


Buy Loliware here and see more projects and inspiration from The Way We See The World.
