Not so long ago, owning a black and white TV was a status symbol. Then color TVs came along, and someone invented a tinted screen with a parabolic lens that less affluent folks could attach to their b/w sets to simulate color – it had a brown tint on the bottom for dirt, blue on the top for sky, and a bizarre flavor of red/pink in the middle where the actors’ faces usually were – and it magnified the size of the screen. This cheap fixit was often better at rendering hues than the color TVs were, as the latter often gave the actors a distinctive fuzzy green complexion anyway.
At least Spock looked good.

From a height of three meters, porcelain figurines are dropped on the ground, and the sound they make when they hit trips the shutter release. The result: razor-sharp images of disturbing beauty—temporary sculptures made visible to the human eye by high-speed photography technology. The porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn’t what really captures the attention; the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that replaces the static pose. In contrast to the inertness of the intact kitsch figurines Klimas started out with, the photographs of their destruction possess a powerfully narrative character.

Yes, it’s true. Horse flies laugh and they know how to throw a trollface.
Update: Completely forgot The Friday .Gif Post last night. 12 hours of battling red tape at LADBS got me all bonky. Meanwhile, visit our .gif archives here.
