Remaking all of the scenes from NOTLD. Animate or re-enact your favorite or least favorite scene. This is all because Romero and pals forgot to copyright the original film. It is completely free to reproduce, screen for profit, etc. Totally proto-Creative Commons style. I love it!
Located in downtown Sheridan, Wyoming, the Fulmer Public Library is a great place to get free wifi, use the library computers, check out a book on the history of the western states of America, and rent DVDs about local history, such as the Bozeman Trail.
If you’re heading to New York before the end of June, do check out Paul Chan’s installation The Seven Lights. It’s by far the winner between the Tomma Abts/Double Album/Paul Chan shows at the New Museum.
The New Museum is an art installation space devoted to showing contemporary artworks only (I think from only within the past ten years). They are a non-collecting museum and moved recently from their tiny Chelsea location to their breathable, architecturally interesting site near Chinatown on Bowery.
Russell Davies has finally come up with a competitor for iCal. It is a lightweight app that boots incredibly quickly and it can sync with all other user agents in your direct vicinity instantly - regardless of OS.
I recently joined this ultra nifty animated gif group on Flickr (be sure to click on the “view all sizes” link at the top of each image to see the animation on Flickr). Animated gifs are an art form that is slowly tapering off in popularity, but they provide a really rad effect. I equate it to the Polaroid film of online media. Totally lo-fi but some how simultaneously geeky. And they are super easy to make. The one pictured above creates a stereoscopic illusion by shifting camera angles slightly between a left right and center position all about 6 ” apart. You can make animated gifs in photoshop or with any of a number of other programs.
Joseph Stalin, commissar of the original “Great Purge,” pre-empts Photoshop with spiffy manual photographic evil: Witness Newmuseum.org’s site, a great beginner’s index of Stalin’s orders to erase various individuals from photographic evidence of his reign.
