The .Gif Friday Post No. 318 – Friendly Cliffs, Chinese Tea House & Japanese Rain
[1st & 3rd .gifs found here and here. The second is my own from this image, because I liked the screaming color morphiness of it all.]
On 6 September 2013, NASA ignited a Minotaur V rocket that launched the LADEE spacecraft. Continue reading “NASA Launch”

Saturday Matinee – Zappa, The Ink Spots, Iron Butterfly, Rare Earth & Satchmo
Earth Day has come and gone, and dang, I missed it. To make up for it, let’s run with the theme.
It would be different if I didn’t care, but I don’t want to set the world on fire.
Yep. In the Garden of Eden. On drugs.
That’s a rare Rare Earth vid. Now, to find one more video to round out the set… okay. I got it.
One of the prettiest songs ever written. Happy Easter and have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.
Saturday Matinee – McDonald’s Shadrach Zoom
Timelapse video of McDonald’s food deterioration. Amazing how fast it wastes away to nothing.
Now before we segue into something completely different, here’s a link to a kid who hacked into a news broadcast. First he sped up the feed, then he tossed in his own commentary. (Here, with subtitles. Tip o’ the Tarboosh to mjazz.)
The Larks‘ version of “Shadrach” is pretty cool gospel. Don’t know what the song’s about? Click here.
The Deep River Boys‘ theatrical version of “Shadrach.”
Louis Armstrong‘s “Shadrach” took the gospel song to a higher level.
The Cadillacs‘ “Zoom,” although not gospel is great R&B stuff. Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow.
Lotsa cool electron microscope images with color enhancement found here. Don’t miss the human tongue bacteria to see what’s tasting YOU.
A Tortoise in Paris
This is Beyond the Valley of Awesome, 26 Gigapixels worth.
That’s a panoramic view of Paris above, the Eiffel Tower is on the horizon at far left. The black donut in middle left is where we’re going. I didn’t believe it at first, until I zoomed in. Below are screen shots from the same image.
We zoom in a little, the Eiffel Tower is still there, skewed by the lens.
Ignore the yellow “I’s” here. On the website linked above you can use them to click for zoomed images of historical sites.
That image by itself would be worth copying and framing, IMO.
The orange dealies scattered around are clay chimney pots, vents for the flats below.
It’s likely the tortoise was photoshopped in as a prank/copyright by the professional zoomers since there is no barrier to keep it from falling off of the sheet metal roof, but I don’t care… the photo detail is still awesome. After all, look where we came from:
