Happy Friday!

Holy cow it’s the end of February! So fast. Crazy.

And where I live: it’s warming up again. (But for how long?)

Looks like we’re in for some videos. Let’s go!

How obsessive artists colorize old photos

[self explanatory]

There have definitely been some excellent strides made in recent years. I’d love to see what they could do with early motion picture footage. Super challenging work, but looks amazing.

Inside Dominic West’s Castle Home

“In this episode of ‘Open Door,’ Dominic West takes us on a tour of Glin Castle, the Irish ancestral home of his wife Catherine FitzGerald’s family. The castle maintains its various period aesthetics, but with all the accoutrement of modern life. From the 10,000 year old Irish elk skull and antlers to the resident spirits and ghosts, Dominic and Catherine show us everything.”

I had never heard of “Open Door” before but I’ll be seeking more of these out. Delightful presentation.

Mortal kombat Acapella

From the decidedly odd “I Do Voices” Youtube channel.

I like it!

Food Play

A whimsical digital animation created by romanian animation house reactiv.

And that, as they say, is that.

Have a great Friday, and an even better (warm?) weekend.

“Skincare and opsec forever”

Created by YouTuber Addie W, each of her videos cover some kind of self-care routine and includes personal and online security tips that are – no joke – essential to know.

Really well done.

The YouTube account is only weeks old, but I’m following. (And my skin has never been more supple.)

New York Now and Then: 1870s & 1880s vs 2010s

This is very carefully composed. They got the photo angle exactly right on all of these. Really well done.


“Watch a single cell become a complete organism in six pulsing minutes of timelapse.”

Literally from the single-celled “zygote” to the larva of an alpine newt. (Ichthyosaura alpestris)

Beautifully done.

Much more info here.

Have a great weekend everybody.

Bon Appétit: Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Pringles

“Join Claire Saffitz as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Pringles!”

This was making the rounds, and it sounds pretty basic on the surface of it, but the complexity of making this snack food is kind of interesting.

I enjoyed it.

“Discover the creation of a sword from beginning to end.

“A privilege to be on location, to see, feel, hear the emergence of a sword and all the work it entails.”
