About depthRADIUS


depthRADIUS is named after the deviantART community that it reflects and represents. Built in service of the largest and most influential community of culture creators and culture responders in the world, this on-line journal explores the depths of the arts world from fine art to the most eminently accessible community arts projects. depthRADIUS endeavors to connect artists and art enthusiasts with other artists and art appreciators from all levels of the arts community, from its most successful stars and innovators to beginners just learning their crafts. The “radius” of this journalistic conversation will extend in its boundaries into arts advocacy, cultural relevancy, education and appreciation.

Art

the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing.

-Marcel Duchamp

Burns Brighter

I want a trouble-maker for a lover,
Blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame,
Who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate,
Who burns like fire on the rushing sea.

From Rumi’s Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi

True

Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
--W. H. Auden

Do You Realize? by The Flaming Lips -- Lyrics

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize - we're floating in space
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face

By The Way...

The best things in life are not things.

VideoLab Makes ‘Man of Steel’ Look Less Depressing


You know how Man of Steel had one of the most dreary looking color palettes of all time? It looks like it’s dark out during the day, and Superman’s suit looks like it’s been hanging up in an abandoned mine shaft for a good century and a half or so. Colorists at VideoLab wondered what it would look like if the film had been edited to look, you know, normal. What do you think? Is this a movie that you would watch?












PIZZA PARTY! by NocturneJewel


Lizards Demonstrate Ideal Weekend Plans


I Love Lucy, Popcorn, and Pizza, what else is there? We’ll be spending our weekend recreating this tableau of a perfect weekend.






















Too Many Kings


Adult Swim’s ‘Too Many Cooks’ video, a ten-minute parody of sitcom opening credits, has been co-opted and repurposed many times with mixed results. We can certifiably say, though, that this Game of Thrones version of the video is spot-on. The editors latched on to what made the original Too Many Cooks video funny, by making tonal shifts when necessary and exaggerating the typical credits sequence look. Plus, this video has the added comedic value of actually featuring a real cast that it would take ten minutes to introduce properly.

The Trailer For ‘The Visit’ Is A Good Excuse To Never Visit Your Relatives


There’s going to be another M. Night Shyamalan movie, which by now should trigger a Pavlovian response of automatic skepticism. However, this movie actually looks kind of scary based on the trailer. It imagines what would happen if two kids went to visit their grandparents who are much crazier than the tolerable-at-Thanksgiving level of crazy most people’s grandparents exhibit. Go ahead and add this to the list of reasons why you should consider traveling over summer vacation.

Cosmo Flips The Script On Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson


Cosmo decided to mix up their Avengers coverage when stars Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo stopped by for an interview. They prepared a special set of questions specifically for Ruffalo, designed to both highlight and mock the vapid, sexist questions usually reserved for Johansson during these press junkets. The interviewer asked Ruffalo about what he planned to wear to the premiere, and if he had any special poses prepared, while asking Johannson about the stunts and action sequences she performs in the film. We applaud this sendup of entertainment reporting, especially in the wake of yesterday’s unmitigated sexist remarks from Avengers co-stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner. We kind of can’t believe we’re saying this, but thank you, Cosmo.

Collection: The Nintendo Generations

Fri Apr 24, 2015, 4:12 PM
Img-00 by techgnotic














While Atari may have defined a generation of gamers, Nintendo has both ushered in and held the hearts of several generations with their unique combination of affordable consoles and memorable characters. Mario may have been born a supporting character in Donkey Kong, but he has climbed the ladder, or perhaps slid up the pipe, to become not only Nintendo’s mascot, but one of the most recognizable characters across the globe.


Nintendo products have been met with varying success, from the much loved and nostalgically covered original Nintendo gaming machine and the GameBoy to the often forgotten flop of the Virtual Boy; the forerunner of the Oculus Rift perhaps? Nintendo hit its stride in the market by offering affordable consoles combined with large galleries of games with a wide audience. Not considered the brand for “hardcore” gamers, Nintendo has traditionally shied away from the more violent and graphically-intensive genres. Instead, Nintendo offers games with enough simplicity that any child or novice gamer can enjoy, yet enough complexity, story or challenge to keep even the most advanced gamer coming back for more. With both the Wii U and the New Nintendo 3DS offering a wide catalog of new and classic games available for download, gamers have more options than ever and no longer need to worry about constantly switching disks or cartridges. Losing yourself in the charming world of a Nintendo game has never been easier.
















Hello! You found my shop of strange and wonderful things!”











These guys are weaker than overcooked noodles!”











A sword wields no strength unless the hand that holds it has courage. You may be destined to become the hero of legend … but your current power would disgrace the proud green of the hero's tunic you wear. You must use your courage to seek power...and find it you must. Only then will you become the hero for whom this world despairs.”











Thank you Mario! But our Princess is in another castle!”

The spotlight has a certain psychological effect that can cause the brain to do strange things.


For example, if you’re in a play and you know your lines backwards and forwards in rehearsal, the effect of the spotlight could still make you trip up on opening night. It wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened, and luckily for you, you’d be in very good company.



One night, while on stage in Berlin, Ella Fitzgerald forgot the lyrics to the jazz hit — now considered a jazz standard — Mack the Knife. Whether it was nerves or just a matter of not having the lyrics committed to memory is a secret that Ella took to her grave, but we know this much for sure: she recovered in spectacular form.


So good was Fitzgerald’s improvisation over the lines that she couldn’t remember, that she won a Grammy award for best vocal performance specifically for this track, which was recorded live. The song starts out just fine, with Ella’s signature voice delivering each note perfectly and the band keeping time. But notice that her forgetfulness is something of a self-fulfilling prophecy — she begins the performance by announcing that she hopes she can remember the words.
















In the second verse, it feels like things are going to fall apart as Ella begins singing, still confident and in-time, that she’s reached the part she can’t remember.


To her credit, the song has several lengthy verses, and many of the words are specific names. Where many performers probably would’ve stopped the song right there, or, if they were really experienced, cued the band to cut the song short and transition into another one. But in this number, Fitzgerald really embodies the notion that the show must go on.


When the part she can’t remember rolls around, Ella begins to ad-lib: “Oh what’s the next chorus, to this song, now/This is the one, now I don’t know,” without missing a beat. From that point forward she alternates back and forth between the few other lines she can remember and making up new ones as she goes. At one point she sings: “Oh Bobby Darin and Louis Armstrong/They made a record, oh but they did/And now Ella, Ella, and her fellas/We’re making a wreck, what a wreck of Mack the Knife” which brought the crowd to their feet, breaking out in applause.


Ella Fitzgerald’s improvised version is a romp, and in many ways it’s the best version of the song ever recorded.



Just listening to the recording you can feel the energy of her performance and the electricity in the air. There’s no doubt that tickets to this performance in Berlin that night were worth every penny. This recording is so legendary that when Frank Sinatra recorded his version of the ubiquitous jazz standard in 1984, he added a riff of his own based on Ella Fitzgerald’s recording: “Old Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin/Did this song nice, lady Ella too/They all sang it, with so much feeling/That old blue eyes, he ain’t gonna add nothing new.”


April 25 would have been the Queen of Jazz’s 102nd birthday. This year we’re wishing her a happy one by thanking her for bestowing this glorious recording on us. Ella Fitzgerald’s rendition of Mack the Knife is a testament to the benefits of not being afraid to fail, and to always trying new things even if you’re unsure of yourself.



























Your Thoughts


  1. Have you ever tripped up on stage, or during another high-pressure situation when an audience was watching? How did you handle it?
  2. Have you listened to any of Ella Fitzgerald’s music? Share your favorite song with us!
  3. Do you think when an artist covers a song they should feel free to change the lyrics? Especially in an improv-heavy genre like jazz?

A Fond Farewell


We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Francis Tsaifrancis001. He was diagnosed with ALS back in 2010 and when it compromised his ability to use his hands, he began the practice of "eye-gazing,” drawing with a computer that tracked his eye movement. This piece was done through eye-gazing. This tribute post by duss005 resonated with us, and we wanted to encourage you to read it as well, as we say a fond farewell to a person who embodied the spirit of pursuing your passion.






















Will ‘Black Mass’ Start A Depp-aissance?

Facepalm Repeatedly Over This Spider Man Pitch


Of all the emails leaked in last year’s Sony hacks, this one is by far the most interesting. Apparently former MTV exec Nick Shore sent this email pitching a version of Spider Man who sends Snapchats, posts humblebrag photos on social media from tough mudder runs, and listens to lots of EDM. None of those things are inherently wrong, it’s just that mashing them all together in some sort of target-demographic sandwich like that reeks of a marketing strategy by someone who doesn’t actually know or care to know anything about the people he’s trying to appeal to. This pitch sounds more like a fever dream than a movie. Plus, how would Spider Man fight crime if he’s always busy dancing his face off and sending Snapchats? This email is, by definition, why we can’t have nice things.

Scientists Genetically Modify Human Embryos


For the first time in history scientists in China have successfully edited the genes of human embryos, causing ethical concerns to be raised both within and without the scientific community. Researchers on the project tried to downplay such concerns by using non-viable embryos that would’ve been incapable of producing human life. Their findings also show that there are many roadblocks and unanswered questions to be dealt with before such practices become practical for a medical application. The hope is that gene-editing technology could be used to cure genetic diseases before humans are ever born with them, but critics say that this is stepping out onto a slippery slope. What do you think? Should we be trying to alter our own genetics if it can improve people’s lives or cure diseases? Or are even those purposes ethically questionable?
