Don't Worry, It's Just a Cat...

It's a supercat supercut.

I hope this isn't a repost.
Google assures me that the word "Logorama" has never been mentioned in this blog. Until now.
I first saw this in 2009, but I have no idea why I didn't post it back then.

From Wikipedia:

"Logorama is a 16-minute French animated film written and directed by H5/François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain, and produced by Autour de Minuit. The film depicts events in a stylized Los Angeles, and is told entirely through the use of more than 2,500 contemporary and historical logos and mascots. The film won the Prix Kodak at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 82nd Academy Awards."


Caution! Some language and violence. This isn't your average kids cartoon.

Absolutely brilliant!
It deserves to get the HD treatment at some point.

European Monuments and Buildings by Night (time-lapse)

Luke Shepard, the creator of Nightvision describes it as:

"...a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way. Comprised of thousands of carefully taken photographs, strung together and stabilized in post-production, Nightvision aims to inspire appreciation for these man-made landmarks."

Watching in full screen and HD is strongly recommended.

A full list of cities, sites and architects can be found at Luke Shepard's page.

Thanks to Lucas for this one.

World War II In Europe (Day By Day As It Happened)

Tomorrow, October 28th, is the 73rd anniversary from the onset of the Greco-Italian war (part of World War II), so I thought I'd post this lovely video showing the day by day territorial changes occurring throughout Europe (as well as parts of Africa and the Middle East) during World War II.

I can't be sure there are no mistakes in this, but I'm pretty certain if there are, they are minor. 
It was created using MS Paint, so a lot of time and effort has gone into this.

Who Murdered Lord Smithe?

That's the question everyone who posts this video poses.

But, I won't lie to you. That question is not the real point of this video.
There's something a lot more disturbing going on.

Just watch.

P.S. I'm back from a forced hiatus. God allowing, it will not be needed again.
