Surface to Structure

Clever origami creations to go on display in NYC.

These always blow my mind. Very clever and highly skilled.

How Wolves Change Rivers

Living in London, this is not something that I have witnessed first hand. Foxes on the other hand…

Regardless, this short documentary is very interesting and it’s amazing to see how small changes can have massive repercussions.

Veep

God, I love Veep and I have a bit of a thing for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She’s awesome – watch Veep for proof!

Is it me, or is American politics just cooler than UK politics?! I can’t imagine Maggie Thatcher, Neil Kinnock or Gordon Brown aping themselves like this.

Jenny and Shirley are two former circus elephants that were reunited two decades after being separated. They say an elephant never forgets. Check out this video about them being reunited and if you don’t at least well up then you’re a cold hearted monster.

Timelapse: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

This is a quite spectacular time-lapse video of a hot air balloon festival. You are never too old to appreciate a balloon (or several hundred!)

It’s also worth checking out Roadtrippers.com’s YouTube channel as their other videos are pretty great too!

It’s nearly time for the luvvies of Hollywood to congregate at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the 85th Academy Awards. To celebrate the 85th year, a wonderful poster has been produced by artist Olly Moss.

Like the Aliens poster that I posted previously, this one requires a closer look too. Click the image for the full resolution image of the poster.

85 statuettes standing to mark the 85 years of the Oscars, each statuette adopting the persona of the film that won the Best Picture Award for that particular year. Quite an achievement with some of them so subtle, you might find it hard to figure out which film it represents. Check out 1988s statuette and be amazed at the subtlety!

How many can you get right? Here’s a full list of winners year by year to see how well/badly you did.
