Waking Life – Torrent -2001- Richard Linklater – Rotoscope

More of Waking Life…DVD cover for the filmMore of Richard Linklater’s Finest…

Waking Life (torrent) is a digitally rotoscoped and animated film, directed by Richard Linklater and made in 2001. The entire film was shot using digital video and then a team of artists using computers drew stylized lines and colors over each frame.

“Waking Life follows the dream(s) of one man and his attempt to find and discern the absolute difference between waking life and the dreamworld. While trying to figure out a way to wake up, he runs into many people on his way; some of which offer one sentence asides on life, others delving deeply into existential questions and life’s mysteries. We become the main character. It becomes our dream and our questions being asked and answered. Can we control our dreams? What are they telling us about life? About death? About ourselves and where we come from and where we are going? The film does not answer all these for us. Instead, it inspires us to ask the questions and find the answers ourselves” (IMDB).

Simlish Music Video Made in Sims 2 – Lily Allen’s Smilie

A music video for Lily Allen’s ‘Smile’ in Simlish featuring a sim Lily in elements from The Sims 2 Seasons and other games from The Sims 2 franchise:

“Thats EXACTLY the reason Simlish is so well loved; almost everyone thinks it sounds like their native language. Ive spoken to people from Brazil who say it sounds like Portuguese, I’ve heard it claimed to sound Greek, French; I’ve heard people claim it sounds like various African languages. They assembled phonemes from a number of different languages across the world and constructed Simlish. A lot of the sounds and phonemes don’t exist in English at all (fwe/fwa/bwa for example).”

“i saw a thing about this in heat magazine lol lily allen said it was hilarious to make im not surprised!! gd vid x”

Track The Sopranos With Google Maps

Track The Sopranos With Google Maps

By Nathan Weinberg
In ten days, HBO plans to go live with a Google Maps mashup that will help viewers track the actions on the Sopranos. There will be markers on the map that correlate to key plot points, and clicking on them will bring up a popup with information on the episode, including video clips. Its an interesting way to promote the show, and possibly the first time I’ve seen news stories to announce a coming Google Maps mashup.

God, I missed the Sopranos. Sure, it isn’t as spectacular as it once was, but its still better than most shows on TV. Hard to believe its been almost two years since the last episode. At least I’ll be able to use Google to see where the next body is dumped, and maybe figure out some the answers to some nagging questions, like how far did Tony walk from Johnny Sack’s place?(link)
