The Re-Incarnation of Captain Scarlet

How does it feel to be immortal now, Captain?

Featured on Dailymotion… again

Dailymotion, the website that sounds like something it isn’t, has featured us in their ‘Funny’ section. Nicely tucked between a CNN report and the new Coen Brother’s film trailer on the homepage as well.

Phonographantasmascope – Jim le Fevre

Here’s a bit of fun that my friend threw my way. It’s a take on the Pixar’s and Studio Ghibli’s 3D Zeotrope Sculptures using 2 turntables. It’s really quite cute. Shows what you can do with a bit of spare time and a technology who’s only obvious use was to play music and rotate helpless kittens.

The creator, Jim le Fevre, also studied at my old art college, which was nice to see.

Here’s Pixar’s and Studio Ghibli’s originals:

Video Recommendation: Kipple

I think we can allow one of this blog’s functions to be to allow us to show unusual videos that we like / wish we had made. For example, this one made us laugh till we cried.

I’d also recommend these: The Microwave Magician, Kipple Intro Rough, Robin Morley’s Smelly Cheese. In terms of who the creators are, the nearest to a normal name that I can find is Peter Ward. A normal place? Sheffield?

Chicken or the Egg – Uncovered

Here’s a question that’s been a bee in my bonnet. Which came first: Chicken or the Egg? It’s annoying because anyone who accepts Darwin’s theories could only logically conclude that the Egg was indeed first (as illustrated). Saying that though, whatever did poo out that egg would have given birth to what was essentially a mutant and would have got rid of the evidence before prehistoric society laid it’s judging eyes on this odd-ball family. Or, maybe I just haven’t quite grasped the theory of evolution. So, like a Channel 4 documentary, there are no real conclusions here, just lingering, time-wasting afterthoughts.

Well… Yep. Does what it says on the tin. Took less than 24 hours for that to happen. Maybe we should make stuff like this more frequently. Hmmm, maybe we might.

Shorts on the Walls

David Allen kindly managed to squeeze DON’T TOUCH into the Shorts on the Walls line up today. Ian went along to introduce it.

It got a pretty good reception, including a nice mention from Chris Unitt on CiB. Just found Eight Eyed Sea Bass also liked it. That’s nice of them too.

It Came in Peace Wins Showdown

At the end of Friday the votes were counted and we won, meaning we now earn revenue when you watch ‘It Came In Peace’.
