Star Wars Episode IV in Iconoscope!

Image by Wayne Dorrington []

I’m a big sucker for smart design. Web Designer Wayne Dorrington succinctly captures the essence of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in icons! It’s so concise.

My favorite is #6.

Most Ridiculous Action Sequence EVER [Enthiran]


This is what happens when you give an unlimited budget to a special effects crew. It goes so far past ridiculousness that it rounds the corner on AWESOME and stays in orbit indefinitely.

The only thing that can top this is if it’s also a musical.

Wait, it is.

Real-time Position of 13,000 Satellites in Google Earth

That looks… crowded.

I chuckled about that scene in Wall-E when he breaks orbit. I didn’t realize it wasn’t far from the truth.

You know… this scene:

Strip Camera Photography


A co-worker pointed showed me an interesting abstract sports photo using a technique called “strip photography.” Naturally, I did the smart thing and did a search for “strip photos” in Google. Then I quickly closed that tab and did a search for “strip photography” and found a great article on this interesting art.

This diagram sums it up nicely:


The concept is simple enough, but the results are breathtaking. Thanks for the tip, Tim!

Definitely Not a Casket

Well, that’s certainly one way to go. Maybe when my time comes, I’ll have my body in the middle of playing the piano.

From Cellar – Image of the Day:

Well, suffice it to say that the funeral directors at Marin Funeral Home in San Juan’s Hato Rey neighborhood have a flair for the unorthodox. For example, in 2008, they embalmed another young shooting victim and displayed his body standing up for the duration of a multi-day wake.

Back to the present: Yesterday and today, callers who stopped to pay their final respects to the late Mr. Colón got a bit of a surprise. Instead of the traditional presentation of the body in a casket, Mr. Colón’s corpse, dressed in casual duds and sunglasses, was instead posed in a very lifelike position atop his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600 F4.

UPDATE: A video… if you dare.

Now I’ll be grammatically correct when I scream that I’m being attacked by a liberty of mummies or a devilry of gremlins.
