Absolutely gripping time lapse video of Manhattan that makes me want to go back to NYC soon. I watched it three times in a row - in fullscreen HD mind you - and saw new things every time. Another great Vimeo moment.
I've always dug timelapse footage and I don't know why. Often times set in city streets where one can see people skittering around like ants, the method provides a certain macro-view of a place. I often think of the technique used in Koyaanisqatsi's "The Grid" where the head and tail lights of cars zipping in and out of the city recollected red and white blood cells flowing in and out of a human heart. It's rare to see good quality timelapse on water though, much less the Queen Mary on a run from NYC to the Caribbean.
Sit back and enjoy some majesty. And if you can, watch the HD version.
A guerilla invasion of the NYC underground. Through defunct subway stations, avoiding trains and the third rail, with the help of a Canon 5D MkII, this video makes an intriguing case for illegal sojourns into the nether regions of the urban underground.
What if the US remembered that Canadians burned down the White House in the War of 1812? Would they tear down the 14 Tim Horton's location in NYC in the same way they're opposed to a mosque?
Note: all regular content of me ranting in this podcast is Creative Commons, but I took the unusual step of adding a song at the end. I cannot attest to their views on the issue or inclusion in my rants... deliberations.
If you like the song (it's called The War of 1812 (The White House Burned) by Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie) find somewhere to buy it online... I couldn't find a link or I would have provided it here. Here's their website store regardless.
