I don’t know why but this video clip attracts me strangely. Even if I don’t understand all the advanced notions that are evocated quickly one after the other, (I am not really up-to-date despite all my efforts to understand some of it), I bow in front of the enormous work to adapt Queen’s music (Bohemian… Read More
I recently received an email from Tom Wrigglesworth inviting me to have a look at a recently published video. Usually, I let such requests go by (if they are not just caught and dumped by my anti-spam filter). Sometimes, I have a look at them. Today, I was stopped by the sheer simplicity of this… Read More

Vinyl records are a thing of the past, mostly. But it’s still very nice to see how they look when you zoom in with an Electron Microscope. Reckon has a gallery of images that show the finely engraved grooves of a vinyl record. It also shows this video of how a vinyl record was made.… Read More

We all love when things come free to us. Here I found a treasure trove of movies that are free to download. Legally. Thanks to the Canadians of the National Film Board of Canada.
