A Murder of Crows

I finally got around to watching this excellent episode of PBS’s Nature a couple of nights back on my DVR.  It’s all about crows and how insanely intelligent they are.  I’ve embedded the first chapter here and, if it whet’s your appetite, head on over to the PBS site to watch the entire episode.

Prague Astronomical Clock 600th Anniversary

A gorgeous, trippy video projection created for the 600 year anniversary of the Old Town Square astrological tower clock in center of Prague.  The intricate mapping was done by macula.  A must watch.

An abstract space opera

Check out this “mesmerizing choregraphy evoking atoms, DNA, seeds, spirals, fractals” by Regis Hervagault. Great stuff.

Trace it on it’s side and it’s a symbol meaning infinity

Watch the above video and then watch this abomination.  It’s irrefutable proof that my generation’s educational entertainment is quantifiably better then most of the schlock put out there today.

Thanks again, Kiki.

So awful it’s awesome.

“Everyone loves rapping along and learning multiplication with D.J. Doc Roc—the Hip Hop Hamster. Positive lyrics, super-cool rap music, and high-energy animation make these multiplication rap songs irresistible. Multiplication facts through 12 are easy to learn and remember with these fun rap songs—a different one for each set of facts. Positive lyrics (on screen) encourage and motivate kids learning multiplication.”

Big thanks to Kiki for the heads-up.

Go ahead and move your mouse around inside there. (That’s what she said.)

Just gorgeous.
