A lovely little video from my favorite café, La Colombe.
WORTH THE WAIT Time magazine, NASA and the US Geological Survey have collaborated on something truly awesome, sifting through trillions of LANDSAT satellite images, culled from the past 30 years, to create “the world’s first multi-decade animated timelapse of the Earth.” Click on the image for the complete series; you will be blown away.
the way the avenues of chicago get more defined; milwaukee ave must have been a ghost town back in 84. and seeing the growth of NYC in the past few decades; so much development all around brooklyn/queens. i am in love with this.

Fun fact: at the very end of the video, biking off of the museum campus, I almost launched myself off a giant flight of stairs because a) the warning sign is very small and b) I was distracted by filming. And so: here is a near death experience experience for your viewing pleasure.

Hua Tunan’s Volve Art Session
Hua Tunan is a Chinese painter who also does performance/street art. His work is very full of life and graceful, and he has a unique and “colorful technique that makes the paint look like it serendipitously exploded all over his cavases.”
Volve enlisted seven Chinese artists to go to town on their new hybrid model to demonstrate the company’s commitment to art and bring attention to the contemporary art scene in China. Whatever their reasoning, the results are incredibly beautiful.
More info on Hua Tunan can be found here and on his Tumblr.
Apparently North Korea released a propaganda video recently using scenes lifted from Call of Duty showing Manhattan burning with an instrumental We Are the World as background music. In the video, a guy has a dream about the latest NK missiles achieving wild success by obliterating New York and bringing about a unified Korea.
