The Art of the Title Screen

0

I may have posted about Naked Jakey before, or I may not have.  I’m too bothered to look up my usual post history.  I found him with his Halo Changed Everything video series. In the above, he goes over the under appreciated world of Video Game title screens.  Seriously, how often do you pay attention … Continued

Interactive Wooden Landscape

This is pretty neat, ETM: Exploration Through Motion is an interesting view of a once static asset.  A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1.  Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued

The Photo’s Rise

For over 150 years The New York Times has been the pre-emetitive news paper of the United States.  Yes, in recent times it has started to lean more towards the left, but it still presents mostly all sides of a story.  I won’t get into the politics of the paper, that’s not worth the effort. … Continued

Norwegian Time-Lapse

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a time-lapse.  Well, I think it has anyway.  So please, watch the above, it’s longer than previous ones at 5 minutes, but it’s just as spectacular as any I’ve posted in the past.  There are some spots where the clouds look unreal.  The music is well paced and soothing. … Continued

Glory Hole In Action

Remember that post years and years ago about The Glory Hole.  Yea, well, here it is in action.  All the rains that California has experienced in the last few months have filled up the Dam and the spillway is in full force.  Unlike the Oroville Dam, this one in Lake Berryessa is well within guidelines. … Continued

I’m sure you’ve seen versions of this before, but never matter, I’m posting the above video because I thought it was fun to watch, and it’s short, and you can spare the time.  Trust me.

Logan

I’m extremely sad that Logan will be the last time that Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine.  He’s one of those perfectly cast characters, and someone that you will really have a hard time finding a replacement for.  The X-Men have always been my favorite comic book movie series.  Honestly, I was never a comic book fan, … Continued

Halo Mjolnir Mix

Seriously, the opening of Halo 2 is one of my favorites in Video Game history.  Watch it below: For those that don’t know, the song played is the Halo Theme Mjolnr Mix.  The above video is that song, rendered on a bunch of floppy disk drives and a scanner.  Pretty ace. {reddit}

Impressive Wooden Marble Run

0

The most impressive part of this marble run is the fact that much of it is carved out of food.  Look at the organic shapes made.  It must have taken the guy ages to get all that detail in it.  It doesn’t hurt that marble runs are just fun to watch.

My trip this past weekend brought me down to Los Angeles, city of Angels.  It is also the home of Fox Plaza, which served as the setting for the greatest film of all time, Die Hard. Naturally, being in  Los Angeles for the first time, I had to visit this monument to film making.  You will … Continued
