Seattle Times
When local film/video production company World Famous started the Assignments in 2005, it was a way for staff members to flex their creative muscles outside of looming deadlines and client projects (which have included the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival and Alaska Airlines, among others). Now, World Famous is putting the call out to all artist, filmmakers and interested individuals to take on the Assignment challenge. A list of 67 topics run the gamut from “Depict a void” to “A car commercial” to “If you had a super power…” Submitted videos will be viewed by the World Famous staff and posted on the company’s website on a monthly basis. To give you an idea of what you can do with an Assignment prompt, check out the video below for #16: A love story. It features music from local electronic band Viper Creek Club. For a full list of Assignments, visit the World Famous website.

Rolling Stone Features ‘Tadgarden’ Show at the Croc

Rolling Stone:
Rock Daily spotted some reports about a near Soundgarden reunion last night in Seattle at one of Tom Morello’s Justice Tour stops. RS reader Chris Senn writes in with an eyewitness account of what went down at the Crocodile Café. “Of course, with Tom Morello and Wayne Kramer in the building it’s a given the audience is in for some kind of incarnation of ‘Kick Out the Jams.’ For lead vocals they brought out Mark Arm, lead singer of Mudhoney, while Morello and Kramer faced off in a guitar duel front and center stage. Shortly after this an additional guitarist showed up quietly, playing at the side of the stage. Although it’s been over a decade since Soundgarden broke up and his signature beard is now gray, there’s no mistaking Kim Thayil!”
