(Guardians of the Galaxy Japanese TV Spot)
This is so excellent.
The kind of thing I see and think, “dammit, why didn’t I think of that..?!”
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
This is what West 57th Street will look like in a few years after all these new “mega towers” are complete… the first thing that struck me is how tiny the notorious Hurricane-Sandy-crane-collapse-building, One 57 looks.
Don’t know if I hate it. Or love it in a Sci-fi Star Wars Coruscant kind of way.
We wouldn’t overestimate risks of events like kidnapping or terrorism, simply because those events are vividly reported by the news and thus feel disproportionately salient.
For a generation digitally wired from childhood, and reared on apocalyptic videos and computer-generated movie epics, not to mention the exploits of hackers, these events showed the real world to be as tightly networked, and for that reason as easily disrupted as the virtual one, even as the grown-ups in charge, the guardians of order, seemed overwhelmed and overmatched, always a step behind.
Micro-robot self assembly. Fascinating. Somewhat terrifying.
Have been meaning to photograph this set for some time as its so well done. Finally got around to it last week and this shot was my fave. It’s pretty different than my previous #LEGO shoots in a few new ways; figured I’d go the extra step and add a little motion to make it really stand out.
I still haven’t figured out how to keep maximum resolution on an animated GIF; there’s always some quality loss, although fairly pleased with this one.
"Evans has become a superstar thanks to the Captain America and Avengers films, and he’s winningly wholesome as Steve Rogers. But Snowpiercer reveals a more intriguing side to the actor in which his all-American earnestness is supplemented by a raw hunger, producing a flawed character who must claw his way to heroism."
Just watched Snowpiercer. Definitely worth a watch. I especially respect the simultaneous Theatrical and VOD release. Well-done. This should be the movie business default or at least VOD within a few weeks.
Are You Alone? (In The Universe)
In order to get scared, we have to lose the confidence in what we know. That’s the mechanism by which we scared. If you’re alone in your house and you know nobody’s there and you hear the faucet in your bathroom open, it’s not a terrifying sound, it’s terrifying because of the context in which we can become vulnerable again.
Cool interview with GDT. I read this book a few years ago, and have to say very interested to see what they’ve done on FX.
