Originally spied on the outstanding blog SFSignal here, I cannot recommend the above short science fiction film enough! Called “Ollie Klublershturf vs. The Nazis” and written by Damon Lindelof of LOST and Star Trek fame, it is about a young prodigy who uses his recently invented time machine to thwart the evil plans of post-WWII Nazis. It is irreverent, but it equally demonstrates what you can do with the short film format to tell a fun story.
This video of the upgrade process from Windows 1.0 to Windows 7 is full of retro-goodness. I wish that I had the time to do this in a virtual machine on my MacBook just for shits-and-giggles (and research purposes).
That right–I’m a blog S&M junkie. Not that I’m into S&M blogs, but I derive a certain amount of pleasure ignoring my blog while pursuing other, arguably more important, matters. So it goes.
I’m currently pulling double duty on papers. I’m knee deep in tank books describing their development and first battles. I believe there is a connection between those first terribly aborted battles and H.G. Wells’ “The Land Ironclads.” Also, I’m trying to fit in some time to work on my Transformers-ICFA paper between course work and readings. There never seems to be enough time in the day for working out, studying, and R&R.
While taking notes, I’m posting new videos to YouTube of last Thursday’s Club Khameleon Open Mic here. This will be the largest performance posted thus far, so it’ll take a few days for all of the songs to appear. Enjoy!
I’ve been playing around with my video camera at the Club Khameleon Open Mic Mondays, and I’ve started putting up some of the great work performed there by the likes of Jenna Remick, “Machine Gun” Seth Johnson, and David Murad on the new Dynamic Subspace YouTube Channel.
Also, there are some videos that I need to convert from DVDs I made a few years back that I hope to add to my YouTube channel. One significant video is Honda’s Asimo robot demonstration at Georgia Tech from a few years back. I’ll post updates as they come about.
And, if you find yourself in Kent on a Monday night, stop by Club Khameleon for good beers, better company, and the best tunes.
