onism – n. the frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time, which is like standing in front of the departures screen at an airport, flickering over with strange place names like other people’s passwords, each representing one more thing you’ll never get to see before you die-and all because, as the arrow on the map helpfully points out, you are here.
Ironically due to our connected world we’re all the more aware of the blank spots in our maps.
Years ago I remembered watching a Woody Allen movie where scientists in the future laughed at our views on eating a diet rich in fat and greasy food. Apparently that movie is “Sleeper” but I don’t remember the rest of it!
‘Course since then the advice about fat has changed somewhat and sugar is now the big bad food stuff we should avoid but I think everything in moderation is probably the best for most people.
Yes, this video is a camera recording a Youtube video on a computer monitor and uploaded to Youtube again. Odd.
This is an alternate universe where the Justice League use lethal force to maintain order on Earth. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are not who you are familiar with. An animated movie is expected at the end of the month and will shine an altogether darker light on these super heroes.
In an alternate universe, the Justice League is a brutal force that maintains order on Earth. Superman is named Hernan Guerra and is the son of General Zod, who was rocketed to Earth as a child and raised by a family of Mexican immigrants. Batman is Kirk Langstrom, a scientist who has inadvertently transformed himself into a vampire in an attempt to cure his cancer, feeding on criminals to satisfy his hunger. Wonder Woman is Bekka, who is the wife of the New God Orion. The Justice League’s unaccountability is ultimately challenged by the world’s governments following the suspicious deaths of renowned scientists. (Wikipedia)
There’s a series of comic books too. Here’s a sneak peek at the first Superman one. Looks great!
This is a great song but I’m slightly baffled by her leaving her daughter for the day to go to a music concert and the daughter is still in bed when she comes home…
Still, it’s only a music video, and “Wake Me Up” by Avicii is a great song.
You should hear what some people make of my name. There are classes devoted to pronouncing it before I arrive at destinations.
Before I watched this video and looked up her name I had no idea who Sarah Wilson is but apparently she’s an advocate of eliminating sugar completely from your body. Ridiculous. It’s another quack diet. Eat everything in moderation and that includes sugar. Eat too much sugar and of course you’ll suffer. Bah.
A slightly shorter version of this short movie did the rounds a while back but this one is a hell of a lot better.
Batman, Superman and Darth Vader all in one clip? Great stuff!
The first time I saw the Power Rangers was in the early nineties while I was an exchange student in France and I thought it was pure violence, because you know, I couldn’t understand any of the dialog. Not that the dialog in modern iterations is any better.
Oh, how wrong I was. This is a very dark deboot experiment. NSFW. There’s also a Youtube version that according to the Vimeo site is safe for work but really, they have a funny definition of “safe for work”. I found it hard to hear the dialog, must be a Power Rangers thing, the sound effects tented to drown out voices.
Neither version is safe for kids to watch. You’ve been warned! (via io9)
25 minutes of an amazing performance by a great band.
I want to know who was the guy in shorts who was leaning against the stage wall at around 8:29.
