Gary Yost IR Timelapse: Mamane Tree Bones

This amazing video was created by Gary Yost, who is a true artist with video. That isn’t just my opinion; his documentary The Invisible Peak has won an assortment of awards, as one example. This one was shot using time lapse filming in the infrared spectrum in Hawaii, not a normal choice for most presentations […]

Spock Laughs

Nimoy posted this behind the scenes shot the other day, and since he was nice enough to include an embed function, I figured that meant he wanted folks to share it. It is nice to get a glimpse of the man behind the character while in full makeup and costume on set.

Guardians of the Galaxy Lego Version

Yes, someone actually did convert the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer into a Legos version. Enjoy!

Peace DadaD

I love good music and I enjoy animation, and this tune combines them both. This has won a few film fest awards for the animation work for Alvaro Les Riel, and the band who recorded this, DadaD, have a decent body of work. This song is called Peace, and it has been getting quite a […]

Ubuntu 14.04.01

Actually, every specialist variant of Ubuntu just came out with their build of Ubuntu 14.04.01, a maintenance update of the current stable release. I have two personal favorites of this family, Xubuntu and Ubuntu Studio.

Xubuntu is a minimal footprint build that allows my surviving computers from the 1990s to run as if they […]

Only Lovers Left Alive trailer

Only Lovers Left Alive was a British/German romantic vampire drama that came out in 2013, but not anywhere near where I lived. It has been nominated for a number of awards, and received a lot of critical attention, including getting an 87% at Rotten Tomatoes. One of the vampires writes music and does scientific research, […]
