Frosch beim Photobombing von NASA Raketenstart

Ein Frosch beim Photobombing (Hi-Res) während des Starts der NASA LADEE Rakete zum Mond. YOLO! (via @AndreasSchepers)

A still camera on a sound trigger captured this intriguing photo of an airborne frog as NASA’s LADEE spacecraft lifts off from Pad 0B at Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The photo team confirms the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch. The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain.

The Sounds of Science – Breaking Bad Tribute Mix

Parallel zu den neuen Folgen von Breaking Bad hab ich noch mal alle bisherigen geschaut. 2781 Minuten, die sich gelohnt haben. Gleichzeitig 46 Stunden und 21 Minuten von denen sonst ein gewisser Teil ins Blog geflossen wären. Bleiben noch die letzten drei Episoden, denen ich jetzt entgegen fiebere. Um die Warterei zu verkürzen kommt mir (neben dem wöchentlichen Heisencast) da so ein prima Tribute Mix wie der von Mark Wayward sehr gelegen:

My mixed-up shout-out to Breaking Bad as it heads towards its finale, with a particular nod in the direction of the show’s composer Dave Porter and its musical supervisor Thomas Golubic. And to show creator Vince Gilligan of course for „Crystal Blue Persuasion“ – top selection!

Had a lot of fun putting this one together and it includes my ultimate pick if I were scoring a “cook” montage (the opener by Tortilla Factory) a guess at a song that might feature before the series ends (Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”) and a track by Ennio Morricone about “War, Peace, and Barbecued Chicken.” Salud!

Undercover Graffiti Koffer

YouTube: Graffiti Briefcase (via Hack a Day)

Bob Partington hat aus ein paar einfachen, analogen Komponenten einen Graffiti Koffer gebastelt, mit dem sich undercover Stencils sprühen lassen. Anzug und Krawatte sind optional.

Unfortunately, one of New York’s most popular art forms happens to be illegal. Fortunately, @bobparti has figured out an inconspicuous way to keep the authorities at bay. The stencils and the colors are configurable. The suit and tie that would pull off the look are entirely optional.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail – Modern Blockbuster Trailer

YouTube: Monty Python and the Holy Grail Modern Trailer (via reddit)

Stéphane Bouley hat Szenen aus Monty Python and the Holy Grail, den ich als die Teenie auf VHS in der deutschen Synchro rauf und runter geschaut hab, zu einem modernen Trailer im Blockbuster-Stil arrangiert. Jetzt noch die entsprechenden Lego-Sets und die Pythons rocken das Weihnachtsgeschäft.

„Instant Art Career“ von Niklas Roy & Kati Hyyppä

YouTube: Instant Art Career (via rebel:art)

Mal wieder eine schöne Installation von Niklas Roy, der in Zusammenarbeit mit Kati Hyyppä für das Katowice Street Art Festival den Kunstbetrieb ein bisschen auf die Schippe genommen und einer Menge Menschen ein Lächeln ins Gesicht gezaubert hat. Mehr auf seiner Seite:

There are many artists in this world, but also many people who could be artists, although they are not. These people might just be stuck in their daily business, being unaware of the exciting possibility to lead the prestigious life of a professional artist. We tackled this issue at the Katowice Street Art Festival by providing anyone with the opportunity to become an artist instantly. For that purpose, we constructed a “Public Painting Machine” and installed it inside a gallery window. People on the street could paint with the machine by pulling on ropes which were hanging outside. The machine bridged the gap between ordinary street life and the glamorous world of art. It launched hundreds of art careers and created skyrocketing fame, which culminated in cash revenue for the artists… Niklas Roy: Instant Art Career

Sorry Mario Bros!

In Sorry Mario Bros! wartet Prinzessin Peach nicht auf ihre Rettung, sondern nimmt ihr Schicksal selbst in die Hand und macht sich auf die Flucht. Das Freeware-Game hat zwar nur drei Level und ein paar kleine Bugs, macht aber trotzdem Spaß und ist mal wieder ein schöner Beitrag zum Dauerthema* „Geschlechter-Stereotypen in Videospielen“. Den Mario-Klon gibt’s für Windows, Mac und Linux zum freien Download. (via Superlevel)

Scott and I took a short break from The Wild Eternal to make Sorry Mario Bros, a free 2D platformer which gives Princess Toadstool the ability to jump, and thereby free herself from King Koopa’s castle. The game spans three of Super Mario Bros’ original levels, this time from right to left, as the Princess jumps, stomps, floats, and warps her way from the dark castle dungeon up to the bright and wonderful Mushroom Kingdom, proving that female protagonists can be just as awesome as male protagonists.

Keep in mind that the game was made over the course of 2 weeks and won’t be perfect. You’ll find bugs, but hopefully you’ll still be able to enjoy stompin’ stuff as the best princess the Mushroom Kingdom ever knew.

Why’d We Do This?

Mostly for fun, and for exercise. We thought it’d be a fun else-worlds sort of story to tell, moving backwards through the mushroom kingdom. The idea was floating around long before we’d heard about the @iamagamer_ca game jam, which was based thematically around strong female protagonists.
