A nice vintage animation about waking up to reality.
If this doesn’t make you happy, I just don’t know what will…
Today 63 years ago, The Netherlands were liberated by primarily the Americans and the Canadians. Therefore, we celebrate our liberation every year on May the 5th. This feast is called ‘Bevrijdingsdag’: Freedom/Liberation Day. We used to celebrate our own freedom from occupation and told ourselves on May the 4th, Dodenherdeking or Remembrance of the Dead, that atrocities like the ones Hitler caused, should never happen again. Every year now, there are less people that consciously experienced the Second World War, and this day has gotten an entirely different meaning now. Life is good in the Netherlands and most of the Western World, but in many places, people are not free and do not have the comfort of a safe home and food on the table every day. In the Western World, we should be very aware of the amazing possibilities we have, compared to millions of other inhabitants of our blue marble.
Therefore, I made this animation for all the Bevrijdingsfestivals, depicting the Global Village, because the world is getting so small and smaller each day. It is the collaborative presence of four NGO’s, Warchild, Amnesty, Cordaid en Vluchtelingenwerk (Refugee Work)
This is just wonderful to look at. The order of the portraits has been chosen very carefully. This mix of art has become a piece of art itself!
If you liked LocoRoco for the PSP, this might be of interest to you. The makers of LocoRoco have made Patapon, a game that looks very promising to the ones that loved that awfully sweet world of the singing, splitting and joining LocoRoco’s. The signature of the makers is all over the game, but it looks quite different and is based on an entirely new concept: rhythm
based gameplay! Perhaps we can look at this as a mixture between … LocoRoco and Guitar Hero?
If you believe Virgin and Google, they’re planning on colonizing Mars in the coming 20 years, through a project called Virgle. I have an underbelly feeling that this is a very serious hoax.
Here’s question 2 of the official Virgle application questionnaire:
- I am a world-class expert in
– medicine and first aid
– Guitar Hero II
Here’s the Google guys making asses of themselves:

The video below makes some of the weird ways of mathematics very visual for people with a mind that’s less mathematically developed, like my brain. There’s a woman in the video that sounds a bit like Deanna Troy, explaining the really weird stuff to a guy that plays dumb for the movie. Somehow the explanation of the subject is oddly interesting, although its real worldly application seems completely irrelevant. Although I must admit I still not rationally understand what it’s all about, I did get some kind of a sensation of understanding something that’s quite complex and outside my regular of the area of interest. How cool is that?
