Last interview with Lou Reed
Last interview with Lou Reed
This is a extremely high quality video promoting the multi-cultural values of the town of Granby, Quebec. If that sounds a little boring, sorry, give it a try, it blew me away.
Stands on it's own either as a song or as a beautiful video portrait.
360 videos, 360 days of sky above San-Fransisco all in a collage forming one film.
Virtual tour of a gallery museum in Barcelona, Spain. Lots of stunning, figurative art, and lots of bodies.
On several floors,they're all worth looking at.
I've been a subscriber to Last.fm for a while until recently I changed to Rdio.com, a paid service for unlimited music streaming.
I've been telling everybody I know that sites like these are going to be the saving of the music industry. And then I've also had my doubts because I don't really know how much individual bands get paid per play and although I searched the info wasn't available.
Until this indie band broke it down for me and the answer....
Something will have to change or I'll have to carry on buying music downloads.
From the page: Little, tiny 15-million subscriber Stumbleupon generates more traffic than mega-monster Facebook because ???????
You had better have an answer to this, because your existence depends on it. My answer is that the Stumbleupon generates enduring traffic because shares are made based on personal relationships. What is additionally distinctive about those relationships at Stumbleupon is that the relationships themselves have developed from shared interests. I can easily share personal passions with my SU friends, which would be potentially sensitive, or even explosive, with my family and "real" life friends, because the relationships were developed from these shared passions. The result is often intimately informed referrals about shared interests in the context of personal relationships. Ask the next sales professional you see what he or she could do with that.
Maybe my analysis is all wet. A good statistician cum systems analyst could figure this out, track down the actual source of your Stumbleupon super-referrals. I understand you want to establish an identity, and the identity Stumbleupon is creating for itself is not what you planned. I also do not know the costs behind supporting a photoblogging site. The important question becomes did you accidentally stumble upon a powerful referral engine that makes your site work, or does the photoblogging detract from the identity that actually makes your creation vital?
A business is like a child, and while parents may have created the child, and while they clearly have great control over a child's world, the business, and the child, both have an identity of their own. It is clear to me that you are messing with the fundamental chemistry of your offspring, and it is important that you have a skilled surgeon in the operating room who knows what they are doing.
So is photoblogging an expensive wart, or a vital organ? I wish you the best of luck in figuring that out, and hope that your business realizes all you desires for it.
Beautiful timelapse photography of the Earth taken from the International Space Station.
Yep, I still love these, stop motion, stop your life for a moment, films.
If you're a Canadian who cares about your right to privacy, this is worth sharing.
Incredible fusion. The improvisational energy is almost palpable.
Thanks Margir and Gladsdotter
Contemporary dance at it's most relevant. On the street.
I'll definitely be looking up this guy's music.
Speaking from the heart: it took me a while to realise it was a poem.
Take the time to see this.
I already heard the research that proved that toxoplasmosis virus affects the psychology of infected mice, so making them more likely to be caught and eaten by cats, so completing the cycle.
Here, it's not viruses but bacteria affecting mice psychology.
The implications for human psychology are boggling. Are we really a symbiotic community of human and bacteria?

The response of the bureaucrats in this video show's a heartless side of the Japanese government.
An effective and affecting dance performance of a poem that continues to resonate.
One of the best alternatives to the big isp's.
I'm always interested in what Stephen Fry has to say, and just watching him say it.
Terrible pressure on a young man for something that is not a crime.
