Foie Gras, Anyone?

This, to me, is like the Jewish massacre by the Nazis! Definitely lost any appetite for foie gras...

Sometimes (not often) you watch a movie and think...How in the world they could come up with these ideas!!!... Scott Pilgrim VS The World is definitely one of those. Very original.

Creative MV's

I think I'm getting an I could play this trick on your faces. lol

Each frame of this music video is a watercolor painting/drawing. Awesome.

Love those mixed beats. Oddly balanced.

The World’s First Digital Camera

If you’re a digital photography buff, here’s some required trivia knowledge: what you see above is a photograph of the first digital camera ever built. It was created in December 1975 by an engineer at Eastman Kodak named Steve Sasson, now regarded as the inventor of the digital camera. via

See how it works here.

Print a DIY Flash Reflector

Want to print your own flash reflector? Pieroway has free PDF templates that you can use. The templates print double sided, with black printed on one side and faint gray fold lines printed on the other. Print it, cut the shape out, fold along the lines, and attach it to your flash with a rubber band. via

Or you can try to make this DIY flash bounce diffuser.

Beautiful Faux Slow Motion with Twixtor and a Canon 550D

More Super Slow Motion [Water] - 550D from Rickard Bengtsson on Vimeo.

Here’s another beautiful example of what Twixtor, the $300 frame-rate conversion software, can do for footage captured with ordinary cameras. This one was shot with the entry level Canon 550D (i.e. T2i), a Canon 18-55mm kit lens, and a Sigma 70-300. Though motion approximation can present issues such as warping, this kind of software is a good alternative for people who want slow motion but can’t afford to rent ($2,500/day) or buy ($118,000) a Phantom camera. via

A short film by a 17 year-old Josh Beattie.

Something never changes, doesn't matter how old you are. Yeah I'm getting a bit soppy here.

Dead Drops

‘Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. I am ‘injecting’ USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your files and date. Each dead drop contains a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is still in progress, to be continued here and in more cities. via
