Lavender Diamond

You Broke My Heart Lavender Diamond has a folk country sound with Becky Stark (taking on the persona of Lavender Diamond on vocals) belting out beautiful light hearted songs in a strangely quiet way. I should probably use the work whimsical somewhere, it's a good descriptor for this quartet. The dr...

Nice little tool. Took a few tries to get it to work properly. Mainly making sure anti-aliased on every tool is off. But it's got a home in my arsenal now. Thanks for the link.

You again! I'm just going to repeat what's been said but with different words and more examples. Forgive me if I go over some of the basics. Illustrator is a vector based drawing program. Vectors are geometric points connected by lines. Those lines can be straight or curved and don't have to reconne...

You'll be taking all of these elements by other artists and putting them into dynamic looking layouts. So you'll be taking othe...

You could turn it into a comedic element, a light moment amongst the seriousness. A friend of mine rented a house where the doorbell was this Sikh chant that lasted ten seconds. Ding-dong does sound a bit goofy. I like the buzzer sound idea. 'Bzzzzz!' is jarring enough to keep with the semi serious ...

Hey wow! Almost a one year hiatus and it's back up and running. It's cool to see how his style has changed in that time.

Multiple Man is in it too! Yeah! And Vinnie Jones as Juggernaught!? He's a little lanky for Juggy but that's what CG is for! < edit: I take that back.> I am a little worried about Brett Ratner, but maybe he took some classes, or studied some good movies and found some talent. :D

The Gorillaz - Kids with Guns

I could mention Aerosmith's 'Janie's got a gun' but that song is only for the old school.

54-40 - One Gun

Black Sabbath - War Pigs

Have a look at Rage against the Machine's catologue, got to be something in there!

U2 - Bullet the Blue Sky

I usually have various W3 School pages open on my desktop for constant refferal. The the dual-pane view is a good thing, WYSIWYG editors put in some dirty, dirty code into a page. CSS is a given now, no website should be without one. And if you're more technically minded, A List Apart is a great res...
