Dedicated to tripletakeover who has now arrived in Tokyo, is very nervous about it, but needs only a short train ride to see this fountain for real.

Via kaote on Faceache:



Looks impressive, right? I suppose it is unfortunate that I couldn't get Apple's Grapher to show it...

Well, I've got one for you - it's called If Harry Potter Was An Anime...

...I don't get it, but I suspect the rest of you will.

Please, friends, if you haven't blared this yet tonight, do so. Or save it for the Friday of your own work/school schedule. And please try to forget "Friday."

This might be of limited use to those of you living Stateside, but my good mate Viking Phil is selling his collection of comic books. I will attempt to confirm if he'd ship to the US if there are any of you over there who might actually want to bid on some of these old rarities.

EDIT: "If I can sell the buggers, I'll happily ship anywhere!" Good news.

Due to needing a new Bathroom, I am selling my Comic Book collection.
I apologise if you aren't interested, but (no offence!) you seem like comicy people!
If you want to leave the group, that's all cool. Also if you can suggest the group to any others that may be interested, I'd be very grateful.
My collection is mostly Marvel and runs from Uncanny X-Men #97 in 1976 up to mid 2002.
I also have all of the Mutant books (X-Factor, Wolverine, New Mutants, Excalibur etc.) from their respective #1's up to mid 2002.
This includes most if not all limited series, cross-overs and one-shots.
I also have everything that Marvel published from Heroes Return onwards. And I do mean everything!
The only DC that I have are Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
If you need anything to fill any holes in your collection, please message me and if I have it we could go from there.
I also have a few lots up on eBay if you'd like to have a look.

Continuing the captured glimpses of the past...

Groucho Marx will be immortal for his comedy films, this much is undisputed. What's fading in the public memory is that after his movie career, for 16 years the man hosted the great "quiz show" You Bet Your Life, which originated as a thinly veiled attempt to get the great comedian to host a talk show, by wedging a short quiz and prize segment at the end of every interview. Groucho occasionally hosted celebrities but almost exclusively dealt with ordinary folks, albeit ones who were interesting, charming or distinctive in some way.

The show persisted for so long for one reason: Groucho, working off-script, was a master wit and a brilliant ad-libber, and almost unflappable. But the occasions where even he was taken aback were notable on their own.

As an aside, had YouTube existed 56 years ago, this fellow would surely be an online notable almost overnight, with cameos and interviews elsewhere. But, sadly it was a different world then.

YouTube, as you well know, contains every frame of every video and film ever shot by the hand of man or robot. While poring through old commercials, because I clearly have a vast amount of time on my hands, I came across a stunning expose into the life of a certain world leader.

In early June of 1983, a certain young Iranian was working as a late-night TV personality and host of commercial bumpers for WSBK-TV in eastern Massachusetts, where he indulged in such great American pastimes as eating hotdogs and listening to Queen, until disembodied voices shouting non sequitur questions clearly drove him insane and into megalomania politics in his native land.

The Arctic Light [Jun. 5th, 2011|11:20 am]

The Arctic Light from TSO Photography on Vimeo.



Ever wondered what Arctic Norway looks like at night about a month each side of the Midnight Sun? There is a sunset, the sun is officially below the horizon, but enough light diffracts over the horizon to make this striking effect of partial daylight. In late April, Norwegian photographer Terje Sørgjerd took his camera to the Lofoten Islands, at 68°N and well inside the Arctic Circle, and made this compilation of time-lapse videos of the Arctic Light. If anything, this is even more worth seeing than the Midnight Sun itself.

Håpla!
