Lest we forget.

I am not a badge of honour,
I am not a racist smear,
I am not a fashion statement,
To be worn but once a year,
I am not glorification
Of conflict or of war.
I am not a paper ornament
A token,
I am more.

I am a loving memory,
Of a father or a son,
A permanent reminder
Of each and every one.

I'm paper or enamel
I'm old or shining new,
I'm a way of saying thank you,
To every one of you.

I am a simple poppy
A Reminder to you all,
That courage faith and honour,
Will stand where heroes fall.

Mind-blowing new time-lapse technique called "layer-lapse" distorts reality in beautiful ways.

I love a good time-lapse. The good ones are so mesmerizing. The new technique dubbed "Layer-Lapse" takes the concept to an incredible new level.

Here's a description from the photographer Julian Tryba:
 "Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein's relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse."
Watch it in action using one of my favourite cities... Boston

OK GO's new video once again raises the bar

I don't know how they do it... Once again... amazing.

If you haven't seen any of their past videos, do it now. There is no one else doing what these guys are doing with music videos.

Famous Album Covers... Animated!

Check out this ongoing personal project by graphic artist JB who brilliantly animates album covers of music he's into - staying true to the spirit of the original designs...

These are some of my favs (mostly cuz I like these albums too). There are many more on his site) Definitely a Tumblr I'm subscribing to.

The future of movie posters?

This is such a cool concept. We see its potential executed today as animated GIF's, but with the way technology is quickly headed with electronic paper and apps like Flixel and Cinemagraph Pro, I can see this type of thing on movie theatre walls everywhere in our very near future.
