» Video of Tower Records on Sunset, Los Angeles, in 1971

Video of Tower Records on Sunset, Los Angeles, in 1971
[self explanatory]
If you want a pretty amazing example of just how much the music industry has changed in 43 years, you’d be hard pressed to do better than this video.
But the same could be said of how different it became between 1971 and say 1992.
The video is hosted by the Internet Archive.
An amazing find. Hat tip to Sarah B.

Bikerlapse - Instagram Hyperlapse on a bike
“I spent a day riding around Melbourne filming with the new Instagram Hyperlapse iPhone app. The video quality is pretty lo-fi but that stabilisation technology is nothing short of amazing.”
I find this development interesting…

Bonus Video:

» ‘Charlie Rose’ by Samuel Beckett

'Charlie Rose' by Samuel Beckett
“Something has happened to PBS favorite Charlie Rose. The erudite conversations and sober intellectualism have been replaced by an absurd world where illogic, inane dialogues, and open hostility rule. The one-on-one interview between Charlie and his guest begins as usual but quickly goes awry, so much so that Charlie is warned that, somewhere, a man named “Steve” is “not happy.” But who is “Steve” and why is he angry?”
It’s a long gag but it’s funny.

Happy Friday everybody. See you soon!
