London Style Through the Ages

This is easily the coolest video I've seen in a long, long time. This video is 100 years of East London style in 100 seconds. The dancers change costumes along the timeline of fashion until they get to present day London. Notice how the male character disappears for a time during the 1940's when he would have presumably been at war. Bravo!

Roald Dahl's Writing Hut Is Sinking!?

Oh dear! "The Dahl Literary estate is asking the public to donate half a million pounds to move the shed where he wrote many of his books." They are hoping to have it rescued in order to move it to the late author’s museum. Now a show of hands, who absolutely loved The BFG or The Witches when you were kids? I better see your hand in the air.

The "New" Shining

Favorite spoof trailer. Who knew The Shining was actually a romantic comedy? Do you like scary movies?

Living Wall Art

Check this out! Over at the National Gallery they have plated a hoarding wall with 8,000 plants of 25 different varieties to recreate the "strong bands of colour" of Van Gogh’s A Wheatfield, with Cypresses. General Electric helped them out in order to fulfill a portion of their carbon reduction plan. What a super way to reduce a carbon footprint!

Transfer Accelerator

{via A Cup of Jo}

How neat! The Dutch installed a slide in one of their subway station. Commuters are encouraged to use it if they're running late, and the official name is a "transfer accelerator." How very Doctor Who.

New Arrivals!!

October 16th - October 31st
