Video roundup

| No Comments

I've got to clear out my browser windows. I'll start with some videos:

  • Assorted time-lapse clips of the sky (sun, moon, stars, clouds, etc) patched together pretty instrumental music: túrána hott kurdís. I particularly like the clouds on the mountain at around 2:25. (Thanks, Charles D!) (PS: If, like me, you have a tendency to keep stuff open in Safari for weeks on end, don't do that with this one--it may cause all kinds of problems. Presumably so would any other videos on that site, I dunno. Anyway, if you don't have lots of other windows open I imagine it'll play fine.)
  • Dr. Who opening credits done in the style of Battlestar Galactica opening credits. Very nicely done, and works remarkably well. Major spoilers for various seasons of Dr. Who; no spoilers for BSG. (Thanks, j7y!)
  • From the Typewriter to the Bookstore: A Publishing Story. The Digital Marketing Team at Macmillan USA put together a fun video showing how the publishing industry works. Sort of.
  • Added later: Spirit rover celebrates five years on Mars (which links to a JPL video about the rovers and what they've done so far). That was posted on January 4; Opportunity's fifth anniversary was yesterday/today, January 24.
