Treasure Island Music Festival 2012: contest winner!


I'm pleased to announce that the winner of our Treasure Island Music Festival 2012 ticket contest is Russell Walks! Below is his witty winning Haiku, about The xx, who are playing at the festival. Along with the Boing Boing t-shirt that all three finalists scored, Russell receives a pair of VIP 2-Day Tickets to the San Francisco festival October 13-14 featuring The XX, M83, Grimes, Best Coast, Ty Segall, SBTRKT, Youth Lagoon, The Presets, and more than a dozen other eclectic artists. Congratulations Russell and thanks to all who entered!

Russell Walks:

Love the Double X
He says, staring at her shirt.
Man, she hates liars.

Treasure Island Music Festival 2012


  1. FWIW, I was grinning all the way through the  video clip because I know EXACTLY how those effects were produced. In fact, I have an enlargement on my wall from one of my own experiments — though I have to admit that it never occurred to me to film the process in progress, as was done here.

    (Transparency film, transilluminated, and gradually heated. If the heat gets too high, the film base bubbles and may break — which are useful effects in their own right — but if kept low you get these color flows and the wrinkling due to differential contraction of the heated film.)

    (Alas, I was just a bit too young to have been involved in the heyday of “light shows”. I’ve always liked the form.)
