Creative Sculpture With a Twist [del.icio.us]

The extended title of this post is: Creative Sculpture With a Twist: 3 Extraordinary Ways to Carve Art Out of Ordinary Objects and it definitely delivers! The patience and skill it must have taken to create this is fantastic. More pictures of the pencils can be found here.

Living in Three Centuries [del.icio.us]

Over the course of 18 years, photographer Mark Story took photos of centenarians around the world. Some of the pictures are available on this site. Although beautifully shot, many of them are creepy – some of the subject already appear dead. Says the photographer about the project, “the experience of talking with a 110 year-old man whose father stood next to Abraham Lincoln during the Gettysburg Address does not easily lend itself to words. A photograph seemed appropriate.”

Grappa [del.icio.us]

I’m not really sure how to explain this really neat… Um, thing, other than, “painting with strings of light.” It’s damn cool.

Weekend Plans [del.icio.us]

A video about pickup line for married people. No, not like that. This funny video is about getting married, getting older, and, well, the way your life changes.

Expendable [del.icio.us]

David Malki !, the clever guy behind the hilarious webcomic Wondermark, is also the Director and co-writer of this 18 and a half minute short film about henchmen working for an evil corporation. The movie is laugh-out-loud funny, and for a low-budget film, these guys have done a great job. Filmmakers will be particularly interested in reading an interview with David Malki ! wherein he discusses the making of the film.

  4. “I was adding needles to my spam filter and I must have accidentally pasted that into the text file for this post.”

    I don’t believe it one bit.

  5. Obviously, none of you are familiar with the type of porn I watch.

  6. You had me at Deep-Throat-Nine. I haven’t seen it, but I want to.

    Weekend Plans: Boy, I hope I’m not that easily bushed when *I* turn 30. Also, catchy.

    Expendable: Does this mean he’s going to stop making A.R.A.C.H.N.I.D. training and recruitment videos? I mean, if everyone….
