Internet Side Projects

One of my favorite things about the current State of the Internet is how people that we already know from other media, who we suspect are creative and insightful beyond their restrictive public roles, use the internet as a tool to supplement their personas.  It can be as simple as being engaging on Twitter, which you can argue is how Ashton Kutcher kept himself relevant in the five years between the (long-overdue) death of That ’70s Show and Two and a Half Men.  But way more interesting, in my book, is when these public figures actually remind you that they’re artists (well, some of them), and use the medium of the internet as an outlet for creative expression and collaboration.

Two of these that I adore are hitRECord (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and SoulPancake (Rainn Wilson), though I’m unsure what vendetta both of them have against the spacebar.

I’m so excited then to share this little video that has the two of them together, having a chat that runs the gamut from the existence of artistic originality to sweat.  Lots of sweat.  Did I mention it takes place in the back of a van?
