A Deeper Look Into The Life of An Impressionist

Expert impressionist Jim Meskimen reels through several of his best impressions (De Niro, Walken, etc.) and, thanks to a developer named Shamook, his face transforms into each of those people’s faces.

The effect is so subtle. Really well done.

MASHUP – The Slip Girls – “If You Wanna Breathe My Sulfur”

A mashup of Slipknot, Spice Girls and The Black Crowes created by Bill McClintock, who says “Sorry for this.”

Pretty great!

The Lost Art of Paste-Up

“Arranging and rearranging a magazine’s layout before it goes to press is all done on computers now. But in the years before desktop publishing software, the work of cutting and pasting required a sharp scalpel, a parallel-motion board and plenty of glue.”

And that’s how all print setup was done from the 40s to the 90s. So complicated!

“You’ve never seen a moving day like this. A 4,000-square-foot house was transported upriver on a barge.”

Pretty amazing what people can do.

And there we go! Video’d up!

See you next week everybody!
