Well hello there late-May Friday, have a seat I’ll mix you a drink…

Steven Spielberg's techniques and themes

Reddit restores 87yo Grandad's Navy Photo

“My Grandad was in the Royal Navy in WWII, in the submarines. I went over to set up his new PC that I’d made for him a few weeks ago and he showed me a photo that a relative had emailed him, of him in his uniform back when he was about 20. The photo was in a bad state and I said I’d see what I could do to sort out some of the cracks, so emailed it to myself to see what could be done.”
This is a beautiful little video. There’s an updated blog posting about the ensuing crowdsourcing-via-reddit that led to this lovely moment.
It’s been making the rounds, and that’s for very good reasons: It’s awesome.

This video has definitely been making the rounds all week but it’s a hell of a story. Further details here.

 	Go Home Productions 'Imagine The Band' (Lennon/Wings)

Take John Lennon’s “Imagine” and speed it up. Take Paul McCartney and Wings’ “Band On The Run” and slow it down.
Compare and contrast. 🙂

Most Complicated Board Game Ever

“Learning to play a new game has never been so painful.”
Nicely done. 🙂

Have a happy, warm, lovely Friday.
