About arty

I've set up a new weblog about art (link below) which is a temporary tryout at Typepad, for about 3 months. You might find some interesting articles there, so take a look!


Update: my typepad weblog (tryout) has expired. I've put the articles on a new page at my art site:

Funnie Movie-clips

Today I found two short movie-clips, both commercials, but the one for VW is a fake I believe.
I read somewhere on the internet that VW is going to take action against the maker/publisher.
The other one for John West (well-known for canned fish) is quite hilarious.

Here are the links:

Macworld San Francisco 2005 Expo Keynote

Steve Jobs, still going strong after his cancer treatment, presented some great new Apple stuff at the MacWorld that's going on in San Francisco these days. I don't want to advertise for some company, but you got to admire those clever guys, who know so well how to make a computer more fun and ideal for creative people. The Mac Mini, the new computer that is not much bigger than a discman, the new iLife software with amazing features like High Definition movie editing, the iPod Shuffle, an mp3-player with the size of a lighter, and much more...
What a difference with Microsoft, Steve Balmer at their presentation yelling like a lunatic about some new dull features in dull software like Word and calling mp3 users thieves. Bill Gates saying free content makers and promotors (webloggers, podcasters) are commies. They don't like things they can't control and make big money with. First they should finally fix those mayor security holes in their crappy operatingsystem. This mediacenter thing is so dull too, tv watching on your computer, wow some invention?!

Amazing movie of Claude Lelouch

On the website I found a link to an amazing movie, made by the famous French director Claude Lelouch, that shows a very fast motorcycle-ride through Paris, France. Someone in a hurry to a date (rendezvous), probably filmed in the seventies.
You don't see the motorcycle itself, it's like you sit on the front of it.
The driver doesn't seem to care about other traffic and ignores several red traffic lights.
You expect an accident might happen. You're in the middle of the action. � General


And yall say I drive fast? warning… large avi file

A much bigger tsunami than the one that hit Asia last Christmas could hit the U.S. and the Caribbean islands in the future.
Scientists from the States and from Europe are convinced that not only a earthquake, but also a landslide into the sea caused by the eruption of a volcano, could create a huge tsunami of up to 150 meters high. These could overflow 20 kilometers of land.
Eruptions of, for example, the Kraketau and volcanos on Hawaii have caused tsunamis in the previous century and the Cubre de Diega volcano, on the Canary island La Palma, could cause a enormous wave if a new eruption would let it fall apart even further after the previous one (1949).
But this catastrophe will be preceded by clear signs, so there will be some time to evacuate.

Just letting you know.
