If you don’t know Banksy, get ready to be amazed.
Here’s a very true quote by him.
If you happen to be shoppin’ for a god and can’t make up your mind, here’s something you should really see. This man, Pat Robertson, makes a very convincing case on why all non-Christian gods, like Buddha and stuff, are just evil demons. It’s hard to make a case against such strong self-produced literalism, as it ends all possible reasoning immediately.
A common sense introduction to the 4th dimension, by Carl Sagan: did you see the 4th dimension, after watching this video? Do you feel trapped in the third dimension? What use is this knowledge? Well, it’s just kinda cool to think about the unthinkable, I guess 😉
Check out the incredibly sad story below. It’s about a girl that got kicked off her sports team for refusing to pray. After that, things only got worse. It seems as though the commandment ‘Love thy Neighbour’ is often applied in such a way that people just try hard to make sure that their neighbour is a good god fearing Christian. Skip to 7:40 if you don’t want to see it entirely. Pretty shocking stuff.
As you might or might not know, I am an incredible fan of the real-time visualization tools (especially Arc) of Digg, that really makes the web feel much more lively and current. Now there’s Flickrvision, a really nice visualization tool that shows current postings of photos on Flickr. It even has a 3D view. Personally, I prefer the ‘Classic View’ as they call it, because it serves its purpose: showing photos.
These are the images that people all over the world are currently investing some of their time in to share them with anyone who cares to look. I sometimes wonder what this tells about the world. How objective is the idea an alien gets about the earth, just by looking at many photos people voluntarily share with the world? First of all, I think we do not wish to share ugly things, or photos we consider to not be so aesthetically pleasing. We probably have the tendency to point our lenses at things of interest and or beauty and we will always try to find some sort of a composition, even if it is not more than aligning the object in the center of the image.
More than an honest look into the lives of people, through photography we are looking through their eyes. If the photography of lots and lots of different people are combined in a single place and you look at them flashing by, what are we really looking at?
You don’t need to be a catholic or even a believer to be happy with the Vatican this week.
The original Seven Deadly Sins (sloth, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and pride) were a bit outdated, so they we’re updated to Seven Deadly Sins 2.0: genetic modification, carrying out experiments on humans, polluting the environment, causing social injustice, causing poverty, becoming obscenely wealthy and taking drugs. The Vatican is almost becoming hip! Read the full story…
The video below seems unreal, but it looks too well produced to be a spoof. Does anyone know if this is real, and if so, why MTV would make a video like this? The ‘evil’ men in the video sure look and sound like white Americans!
If you thought saying n*gger on the wheel of fortune only once was bad, you should hear John Lennon say the word again and again in the video below!
A philosophical animation about what evil is or could mean. Very nice, naive style of design and rendering, somewhere in between motion graphics and animation.
