  • Mood:
  • Music:
Perhaps the coolest music video ever: Cornelius, "Fit Song" (FLV). CG, stop motion, and plenty of compositing, supremely elegantly combined.

If you've some interest in visual special effects, you might enjoy this 1985 documentary, The Magic Picture Show, from BBC1's "QED" series, hosted by Kenny Everett. It's great fun, seeing how much graphic design and technology's come in that time - and Cuddly Ken's always good. ^_^ Marvel at the wonders of blue-screen separation, and the miracles of Quantel!

Quite brilliant French Hyundai advert (FLV). =:D

Jolly good show, what? Red Ken's made a deal with the Venezuelan oil company for 20% off all fuel for London's bus fleet, in exchange for tourism-related assistance.

One or two folks might be interested in this group, which is just what it sounds like: photo_squirrel. Some quite excellent images to be found there.

Cool beans! Seems the world's largest wave power farm is about to be deployed, off the Scottish coast, ramping up to supply 1,500 homes. 'Friends of the Earth Scotland chief executive Duncan McLaren weighed in with: "Wave and tidal power could supply a fifth of UK's electricity needs and Scotland is ideally placed to generate significant amounts of this pollution-free energy.'

rabitguy found these stories, available as free PDFs (or on paper): "Silver Squirrel, the novel. What's it about: A boy, a girl, and they're squirrels." "[...] a new series of adventure novels based in nature. Remember digging into the pages of a great story? Why not give Silver Squirrel a try, and you'll discover a whole new natural world!"

Well, that's a pleasant surprise - I'm not sure where it came from, but there's now a Budweiser Budvar stein in the cupboard, decorated with a scene of the factory, and a brief introduction to the lager in Czech, German, English, and Russian. ^_^

If you've used HandBrake for DVD transcoding in the past, you may like to know development hasn't halted - by virtue of it being an open source project, it's been reborn as MediaFork, available for OS X, Linux x86, and Windows.
