Whuhoo! Friday! Hard to believe yes?

Here are some Friday Videos. (popcorn sounds…)

» Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit (Top Of The Pops 1991) HD

Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit (Top Of The Pops 1991) HD

As with most bands that appeared on the show, when Nirvana appeared on Top of the Pops in 1991, they were asked to only sing the lead vocal over an instrumental track.
You can see how they handled that here… 🙂

» Obama Voice Sculpture : Next Industrial Revolution (Gilles AZZARO)

Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition

“This animation consists of 12 597 handmade aquarelle paintings, each painting is approximately 1,5*3cm in size. Together they form my 35 minute long paraphrase on the motion picture Blade Runner (1982) by Ridley Scott.”
Crrrrrrazy!

Official Honda - An impossible made possible - Behind the Scenes

A really well-done “in camera” visual effects sequence – meaning: no computers were used to create these effects. I love it.

SHAKE

“SHAKE is based on a photography series of the same name by co-director Carli Davidson. The work was inspired by her own dog Norbert, whose drool she regularly cleans off walls due to his own frequent shaking.”

“I saw this drilling rig in the harbour a few days ago and when I saw it while flying out to Blouberg, I decided to go out and have a close-up look.”
