Rob Cantor Performs His Song About a Cannibalistic Shia LaBeouf Live With a Full Chorus in Front of Shia LaBeouf

Rob Cantor recently performed his brilliant song “Shia LaBeouf,” which tells the story of a violent encounter with a cannibalistic version of actor Shia LaBeouflive on stage at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, California. Cantor was joined by The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, The West Los Angeles Children’s Choir, The Argus Quartet, and a team of dancers with 3D papercraft Shia LaBeouf heads, all for an audience of one — Shia LaBeouf himself.

Cute Little Girl Runs Around While Dressed Up as a Glowing LED Minnie Mouse Stick Figure for Halloween

After the great success of his LED stick figure costumes last year, Royce Hutain of Glowy Zoey decided to take them to the next level by creating a Minnie Mouse version of his suit. He captured footage of his cute little daughter Zoey running around in the magical glowing costume before her trip to Disneyland for Halloween. Hutain’s Minnie Mouse outfit is not for sale, but his original stick figure costumes are still available to purchase online.

The 2014 version is using digitally addressable LED strips hooked up to an Arduino microcontroller which I programmed (and still learning). It is responsive to sound and has 2 potentiometers and a button in the back of one of the ears for control and a microphone hidden in the front. It has 12 modes and 372 LEDs (124 chips with 3 each).

Zoey was a huge hit when we went to Disneyland and when she said “3” for how much candy she would get, she must have meant 3 pounds because that’s what she got.

‘Shooting Thoughts’, An Interactive Installation That Allows Participants to Send Stars to a Church Ceiling

In the recent interactive installation Shooting Thoughts by artist Filipe Vilas-Boas, participants sent stars from their mobile devices to the ornate ceiling of a Gothic church in Paris. The shooting stars were projected on the interior of the church with the aid of lasers. The installation took place at Nuit Blanche Paris earlier in October.
