bazmeg újra felkerült az anno érthetetlen okok miatt levett legjobb videó a youtubera, ami tökéletesen hozza azt, ahogy elképzelem a csecsen háborút.
tökéletesen megkomponált darab, üvöltenek a kétségbeesett katonák a rádióba, remegő kézikamerás lakótelepi felvételek, a lángolva zuhanó helikopter, a groznij utcáin száguldó harckocsik, a katatón állapotban halott bajtársaik fölött billegő bakák, a lángoló harckocsik elől menekülő síró kisfiú, a moszkvai hedonizmus képei és a halottak, meg a végén kéregető nyomorék veterán.
és közben üvölt a from roots to needles az if these trees could talktól, audió és videó tökéletes összhangja.
Normandy, 70 years ago, and one of the biggest concerns of the British troops who have made it over the channel, survived the landings and pushed out into the bocage against bitter German resistance is not the V1 flying bomb blitz threatening their families back home, nor the continued failure to capture the port of Cherbourg – but the lack of beer in the bridgehead. On 20 June 1944, two weeks after D-Day, Reuter’s special correspondent with the Allied Forces in France wrote to newspapers in the UK that all that was available in the newly liberated estaminets a few miles inland from the beaches was cider, “and it is pretty watery stuff. I saw a British private wistfully order a pint of mild and bitter: but the glass he sat down with contained the eternal cider.”
You won’t believe this one weird trick they used to fly beer to the D-Day troops in Normandy
For 17 years, it has been drifting on a lonely course through space. Launched during the disco era and shuttered by NASA in 1997, the spacecraft is now returning to the civilization that abandoned it. It seemed destined to pass without fanfare, except for a slight chance of slamming into the moon, and then loop aimlessly through the inner solar system. But now, a shoestring group of civilians headquartered in a decommissioned McDonald’s have reached out and made contact with it — a long-distance handshake that was the first step toward snaring it back into Earth’s orbit. The zombie spaceship is coming home. (via Calling Back a Zombie Ship From the Graveyard of Space - NYTimes.com)

An iPad Controlled Drum Machine That Plays Whatever You’ve Got Lying Around As a Drum
If you’ve ever realized how much potential a box of dry pasta has as a shakeable instrument, you’ll immediately understand why Lorenzo Bravi’s Hit the Beat drum machine is so wonderful. Because whatever you’ve got on hand, from dry beans to bottle camps, suddenly becomes a real-life drum sample.
You don’t need to be a musician, or have any kind of musical timing, to be able to play it, either. The machine, which is connected to a series of wooden platforms hiding actuators inside, vibrates whatever you place on top—be it a coffee mug, or a pile of skittles.
An Arduino takes care of all the processing and triggering, and the system uses MIDI to turn the beats from a drum machine iPad app into the real-life sounds. With standard drum machine software you’re stuck with a library of pre-recorded samples, or samples you capture yourself. But with Lorenzo’s creation, those samples can instantly be anything you get your hands on. (via An iPad-Controlled Drum Machine That Plays Whatever You’ve Got)
