All Photos look the same

Eiffel tower photos

Or, more specifically, most of the ones the average tourist takes of major tourist attractions while on vacation look the same.  If that wasn’t already known, then after looking through these photos of Corinne Vionnet, you’ll begin to realize that yea, people are boring.

She has 23 different popular tourist spots from around the world that she’s seamlessly combined together into massive multi-photos.  One thing that you have to give people, and tourists in general, is that some of these things there’s only 1 real good shot of it, so that dictates how the scene will look.  Like the Taj Mahal:

Taj Mahal

The Twin Towers though, there were thousands of different vantage points and places to get a shot of them, so this one seems alittle stretched.

Twin Towers

The Pyramids of Giza are hard, most tourists wouldn’t have a nice ultra wide lens needed to get some really interesting shots of them, so I can kind of forgive them for all looking the same

Pyramids

My favorite one though has to be The Golden Gate Bridge, simply because it’s the one where you can tell that people have taken many different shots of it.  Not all from the same perspective.  And I like that about this one:

Golden Gate Bridge

I will admit that I’m guilty of probably some of the same ones of those.  Hell, one of my favorite photos is of me at the Area 51 Restricted Area sign, and legally, there’s only 1 side to that sign you can get.  And I didn’t have my ultra wide lens when I went there, alot of good it would have done since you usually need some high powered telephotos for there.

Dinosaur Surpervisor

You might be asking yourself why I’m giving this it’s own post.  Surly this is ripe material for a Stumbles?!?@..  Well you would be right, except this is Jurassic Park.  And there are a few films that I respect so much they get special treatment.  A short list of them for those who are curious:

  • Die Hard
  • Jurassic Park
  • Armageddon
  • Terminator 2

Yes, that list is in order.

Anyway, I would like to point out that Phil Tippett failed at his job, I wonder if John Hammond wasn’t paying him enough either.

Star Wars vs. Star Trek…the Movie

As far as trailer mashups go, this has to be close to the top for excellently well made ones.  The title speaks for itself.  And except for a few scenes from the less then great 2009 Star Trek film, it includes bits and pieces from the The Next Generation films, and the last 4 (chronologically) Star Wars.

Gigantic Rube Goldberg Music Video

Rube Goldberg machines are so awesome, uselessly awesome.  I’m not much of a fan of the music, (I don’t like OK GO), but i can apperciate the time and effort that went into making that and setting it up, and doing it all in one take.

Jurassic Park Theme / 1000

Jurassic Park Theme (1000% Slower) by birdfeeder

I love Jurassic Park.  It’s such a great film, and a great book, but this post is about the film, or more specifically, the music behind the film.

Songcloud user birdfeeder slowed down the theme song 1000%

Yes, it’s almost 1 hour long. Yes, the first 5 minutes of it are pretty hard to get through, but Yes it is worth it.  It gets pretty awesome around the 10 minute mark, then cools off for a bit, but it’s still good.  17 mins in is another high point.

 

Now, here’s the part where when you see the film, everything sinks in.

3D Pendulum Science

I never would have thought to try that, that’s pretty neat.  Just when it looks like it’s about to slow down it keeps going.  Then again, this whole video could be some magical CGI trickery, but I’d like to pretend it’s not, and anyone who says differently will be banished.

Hourglasses

The Hourglass from Ikepod on Vimeo.

This is a pretty cool video if I do say so myself.  I didn’t know that the stem connecting the 2 orbs of the hourglass was so small, I’d be afraid of breaking it personally.  Also, this just shows the making of the glass, and not the container for it that you would turn upside down and stuff.

The Pocket Chair!

This guy is no Billy Mays, or Vince Offer, in fact, I don’t really like him too much at all, but this line makes it:

Load up a drawer for a Pocket Chair Party!!!!!1!!11

That’s all you need to know about that video in case you didn’t watch it.
