(no subject)

Okay, time to cast this into the æther, lest I wind up with another tome of Russian magnitude. ^_^

Apparently, the Queen is a Doctor Who fan, and considers Eccles one of the best incarnations. ^_^ And on that note, whatever you think of the new version of War of the Worlds, this is easily the best review you'll read of it.

A remarkable photo (3MB), from the latest shuttle mission, shows one of the astronauts photographing his own helmet reflection of the shuttle and the Earth.

This Flash animation, Bu Hua (5.5MB) should be seen.

Because two heads are better than one. ^_^ (No, no, it's not that cat. This is very cute, courtesy of mejeep)

Yay! A better quality copy of that rather delightful Honda "Change Something" ad is now available. (9.2MB; 420x260, rather than the original's 240x128)

Odd little dream snippet the other night involved someone zooming off into the near distance on self-propelling boots - something like snowboarding boots, as if he was on a powered skateboard, just without the skateboard. I think we need self-powered boots. (The other bit I remember was some device that was able to send focussed sonic shockwaves - not initially audible, just something to you felt. Then it got ratcheted up, and became loud enough I could barely speak with the person beside me) For some reason, my first thoughts on waking up were the creation of an omelette using Hula Hoops.

Here's a curiously engaging short comic story: Balloon Dreams.

Candidate for domain name of the year: - a surprisingly good media review site.

And today's media dig from the deep is from their 1995 Telecommunication Breakdown CD, long since out of print - Emergency Broadcast Network's Electronic Behavior Control System (12MB). There's plenty of artefacting, unfortunately reflecting the original (Cinepak, woo!) compression, but it's still a nifty piece of work regardless.
