I've looked at Abbey Road from both sides now...

Flickr user Harvezt brings you The Dark Side of the Covers, which recreates 33 rock album covers as seen from the OPPPOSITE direction. Some of the covers are iconic, others are obscure, some of the interpretations are simple and obvious, others are creative and... interesting. (And some are NSFW, but then, some of the original covers were NSFW).

April Fools' Day, everyone's (least) favorite day on the Internet, brought a 73-minute movie to Netflix of a rotisserie chicken uncooking. What a waste of reversed video. [more inside]

"Time flies when you're having a culture."

As part of a 1995 Wired special issue on scenarios of the future, Douglas Coupland ( previously ) noted that most time capsules seem irrelevant to the modern eye, and dared to contemplate:
If you could send a time capsule back 20 years [to 1975], what artifacts [from 1995] would you choose?

Macro Photography on the Cheap

Macro Photography on the Cheap (film camera or digital). Reverse Ring tags and a roundup discussion on Flickr. All you need is an SLR body (scratch that: you can even do it with a point and shoot) and reverse ring for your camera mount, and a lens whose filter size matches the reverse ring (doesn't even have to be the same mount as your camera!). Or, make one from a body cap. How/why it works, tips on shooting reverse macro, and even a podcast on the subject. It's even possible to do EXTREME closeups. Come to think of it, why not try this with video? Now, need to get some light on your macro subjects? Make a cheap LED ring light, or go low tech. Make tons of more stuff for your creative photography needs at DIY Photography.

This is utterly delightful: Tara Busch sings the first line from "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" backwards. Of course, you'll wanna check out how well she did it by watching it, um, forwards. Yep, she nailed it. I think I'm in love. [more inside]

reverse speech

reverse speech "This form of communication can be heard if human speech is recorded and played backwards. Once every five or ten seconds very clear and precise phrases occur.
Reverse speech is the voice of truth and it is complementary with forward speech. The two modes occur simultaneously yet are formed in different areas of the mind. Simply, forward speech is from the left brain and Reverse Speech is from the right brain. "
