Creative Wave – November 28

Creative Wave – November 28

Happy Monday everyone. A slight hiccough early on in the life of the Creative Wave, but even though it’s Monday and not Friday, you’ll still find all the usual audio-visual gubbins to sink your metaphorical teeth into. A day late, but a quid over. 

 

TUNE FOR THE WEEKEND-

A lot of people don’t know that Nine Inch Nails and David Bowie once did a whole concert together. It was an absolutely incredible evening which saw 31 classic tracks from two of the strongest back catalogues in the industry get an airing. Here they are performing the amazing Hurt :

* Interesting idea from San Miguel – this weekend’s Guardian is going to come with an ‘alternative rich list,’ of inspiring people from around the world who aren’t necessarily wealthy rich, but rather ‘life rich’-

* People end up sleeping on the streets for many reasons. They are often victims, and have been left behind by a government who wishes they didn’t exist. Tonight is the annual Sleep Out, where usually homed people take to the streets for the night to raise money for the homeless. Brilliant cause-

* This is another cool music video from OK GO. Here they set off a huge load of explosions and create a mess in 4.5 seconds, then replay it all in slow-motion. Good fun-
