Short film of climber
Dan Osman scaling Lover's Leap in California without ropes, racing over 400 vertical feet in just under four & a half minutes. Link goes to direct wmv download. Having never heard of Osman before, I was shocked to find out that his daredevil ways led to an early death when a rope snapped
while Osman was performing a modfied form of bungie jumping in Yosemite back in 1999.

is a software+video project by media-theorist Lev Manovich
, which 'mines the creative possibilities at the intersection of software culture, cinema, and architecture.' While perhaps more intriguing in prospect than in practice
, it seems at least a noteworthy attempt at making something new. A DVD version
of the project was released earlier this year.

Nice Beer Ad from Down Under
a 1000 Auzzies in gowns crossing over the sheep strewn plains of Australia.
Ahh..foreign ads..perhaps this indeed the next form of cultural worms? I can see those soulless bastards on Madison Ave.."Yes..lets push hard on the foreign angle and prey/pray some poor sod on MeFi picks it up..we'll be rich I tell ya RICH!!!"
Forgive me MeFiers.

We're several thousand feet down, where the pressure is about 3300 psi. The pressure inside that pipe? About zero. The crab? A goner.

Lifted from the fabulous Tween
: "Start with botany, mix in a little nanotechnology and genetic engineering, add a dash of sci-fi daydreams and maybe you’d end up with something like the creatures in 1st Avenue Machine’s new music video for Alias."

My Friend Dario
Hot dancers in tiny bikinis and football helmets. A lead singer that looks like a pomo Leather Tuscadero. And headbanging mulletheads playing imaginary instruments. 'Nuff said.
