Some dramatic photos take from a kite of Seattle, Washington, and several other environs. By cookinghamaus on Flickr. Tip o’ de hat to MetaFilter for the pointer.

Meade Lux Lewis – Boogie Woogie

I’m reading Life, Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones’ autobiography. A great book; I’m really enjoying it. It’s very much a reminder of life and times gone by. In it he mentions hearing Ian Stewart, the fellow responsible for pulling the Stones as we know them together, playing Meade Lux Lewis as he walked in the first day the band ever practiced together.

In this video, Mr. Lewis plays a stevedore taking time out from his work to entertain people walking by on the sidewalk. I’ve got to say, it’s not as pumped up, production-wise, as Janet Jackson’s Alright (a favorite music video) but it does compares favorably, imho.

Another Anniversary

From the YouTube page:

This is the PEN Story in stop motion. We shot 60.000 pictures, developed 9.600 prints and shot over 1.800 pictures again. No post production! Thanks to all the stop motion artists who inspired us. We hope you enjoy 🙂

“Up”: The Mashup

This video mashup Upular is from Pogomix, a Perth, Australia-based DJ who uses both audio and video to amazing effect. This mashup is the one of three he has re-created into another form of entertainment from Pixar films. (There are also Toyz Noise and Buzzwing made from Toy Story clips.)

His first major hit was a hugely popular video/song from the Disney movie Alice in Wonderland. Regrettably, it has been taken down from YouTube.

Copyright issues aside, Upular has attracted video tributes as well. I love that the Internet makes such delightful re-imaginings something we all can see (mostly).

Update: Apparently I am mistaken. Alice is still available on YouTube. It’s pretty dang good.

Rollerman

A French artist turns himself into what appears like a skater version of a Transformer. It looks fun ~and~ cool.
