Skyline Shades

0

The Ukraine company HoleRoll has these ace blackout blinds for windows.  Through (I assume) laser cutting fabric and material, you get a gorgeous shadow/lightbox view of either the Manhattan Skyline, the London Skyline, or the general night sky.  Unfortunately, the prices are quite high – $178 for one pane of the panel.  That’s the base … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: – Mexico

0

Those lights were bright on Broadway you know.  Wonderful, colorful, beautiful lights.  In a geological instant they were snuffed out, flooded, and destroyed.  SONY (Sinking of New York), had cataclysmic effects across the world, though none as great as the immediate south of The United States of America.  I’m talking about Mexico.  Specifically, the sovereignty … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: – The Shoreline

You would think that the weight of the concrete, steel, glass, asphalt, and all the other crap that’s above ground would be quite high.  You would be correct, but you would also be wrong.  It’s a tricky situation.  When the subways of Manhattan were flooded, the city started to float.  Not the island itself, rather the … Continued

Crazy Difficult Time-Lapse of NYC

0

Julian Tryba has a pretty neat Time-Lapse, or layer-lapse as they call it, of New York City: I admit, that was pretty ace.  Each scene in the video has as many as 300 different layers, all being independently turned on and off to the beat of the music.  A time-lapse done well to music is … Continued

Alternate History Thursday:- Falling Skies

Please don’t watch that terrible TNT show.  Instead, read the rest of this story and be amazed at the actual history that you missed out by being born in this reality, and not the alternate one that I’m about to describe. We still don’t know where the millions of people who inhabited NYC daily went.  … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: WAR!

Is good for absolutely nothing.  The song was right about that.  But we’re not talking about that song, we’re talking about something that actually happened.* When we last left our heroes (or villains as some might call them), The Nation of New York had started a war with the United States of America (Minus New … Continued

New York City – By Drone

I know this video is almost 3 years old, but sometimes it’s nice to revisit some old things, and show how times have changed, and technology improved.  In this case, the video quality is still amazing, as is the production quality.  You know what has changed, the ability to do something like this and not … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Carriers

The President was having nothing of what the city of New York was doing.  With their intent to secede, it was clear that a state of war was about to exist.  However, these were still Americans there, and he didn’t want them all to be punished for the crimes of a select few crazies.  As … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Electricity Gone

Things have quickly spiraled out of hand in the great city of New York.  Soon after the bridges were leveled, and the tunnels blown up, the Mayor of NYC officially declared his intention to secede from the State.  He wasn’t totally crazy, he wasn’t going to secede from the Union, only the State.  However, the Governor … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: No Bridges, or Power

The situation with the Federal Reserve Bank is getting out of hand.  Conventional wisdom said to let the world have it’s gold, after all, what good is it if you can’t use it as a bargaining chip.  Much of the rest of the country is coming back online and being functional again.  Except for New … Continued
