Stunning time-lapse videos of Yosemite and the Aurora Borealis

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love a good time lapse video? Skies are especially good subjects because they usually seem to be holding still, or close to it, if you just look up but they aren’t and we aren’t. I found a couple of good ones this week. The first is from Laughing…

Watch one of the all time greatest mashups: 1001 movies in 10 minutes

According to io9 this supercut video took creator Jonathan Keogh more than a year. He said that it was important to start with a film projector because film is already, largely, a thing of the past. Based on his sentiments I see it as a sort of tribute to all the movies.

Jordan Belfort was a wimp compared to Star Trek TNG’s ‘Worf of Wall Street’

Belfort may have ripped off people for millions, stashed the money in offshore accounts to avoid taxes and made it through the justice system with only a slap on the wrist for selling out his co-workers but he fought without honor. Besides who needs millions of dollars when you have a star ship, photon torpedoes,…

Video: The Oscars in Two Minutes

If the Academy Award people are concerned about the ceremony’s tendency to run long, they should talk to the people at Digg. They’ve condensed the ceremony down to two minutes. So if you missed it and want to catch the hi-lights or of you deliberately avoided watching it because of the length or if you’d just…

How Harry Potter should have ended.

J.K. Rowling said recently that Harry Potter should have married Hermoione Granger at the end of the story. She was wrong. By ending things the way she did, Harry married Ginny and the boy who had no family suddenly had a large one. Ron, who had always come in second to Harry got the girl.…

More Matrix movies, really?

Remember Star Wars? We got three amazing films. Everyone wanted more then, finally, we got them.
