Above LA is a love letter to Los Angeles and showcases my favorite way to view the city - from above. Whether on a rooftop, a hill, or a mountain, getting above the grind of the city allows you to appreciate it in a new way. Once you get even slightly above, the views and sounds begin to change dramatically.

Getting above it all has been instrumental in helping me get to know and appreciate Los Angeles. This piece was produced off and on over the course of two years, and the clips selected for this film are only a small percentage of what I captured during my quest to take in the city from different locations and in new ways. Some of the locations featured are popular and easy to access, others require some searching and hiking, and some are heavily restricted. But I encourage everyone - lifelong Angelenos, transplants, visitors - to hit the trails, drive the mountain roads, find a reason to get on top of a high-rise. From the basin to the valley, this city offers so many opportunities to rise above and look down. Never stop exploring.

On Your Mark & Castles in the Air (CHAGE & ASKA PV) from ala sunder on Vimeo.


via The Verge

"Hayao Miyazaki is a singular director, and perhaps the greatest anime director of all time. However, back in 1995, he was struggling to create what would become one of his masterpieces, Princess Mononoke. So, as a side-project, he directed the seven-minute long music video for Japanese rock band Chage and Aska's single 'On Your Mark.' However, the short film has all the earmarks of his signature style, and it's breathtaking as a result..."

Falling From Space

GoPro: Red Bull Stratos - The Full Story

Published on Jan 31, 2014 GoPro ·588 videos

"October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner ascended 128,100 feet above Earth's surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon. Millions across the globe watched as he opened the door of the capsule, stepped off the platform, and broke the speed of sound while free falling safely back to Earth. Felix set three world records that day—and inspired us all to reach beyond the limits of our own realities, and reimagine our potential to achieve the incredible.

GoPro was honored to be a part of this epic achievement, with seven HERO2 cameras documenting every moment. From the airless freeze of outer space, to the record-breaking free fall and momentous return to ground—see it all through Felix's eyes as captured by GoPro, and experience this incredible mission like never before. No one gets you closer than this."

Sounds of Crickets



"Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): "Wilson, he's always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts - you wouldn't believe it. It's like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it's just slowed down, they didn't manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there's something to be said for slowing down the world."

If the Moon Were the Same Distance as the ISS

Published on Oct 11, 2013 yetipc1·7 videos

"Trivia:
When the Moon eclipses the Sun, the camera exposure is adjusted so that you can see the Light of the earth reflecting back upon the moon. This was actually done by using a stand in Earth model to get reasonably accurate Earth "shine", it is Blue on the left side because the moon is flying over the Gulf of Mexico, and is white/tan on the right side because that part is over the United States . it is Dark in the middle because it is casing a huge shadow, and that shadow does not reflect light back on the Moon. I didn't quite expect it to look like this, it was a nice surprise


At this distance the Moon would rise in the west and set in the east, The Moon Orbits the Earth counterclockwise when viewed from the North pole looking *down*. the same direction that the earth rotates. Normally the Moon orbits much slower than the earth rotates so it rises in the east and sets in the west, however at 420km it orbits much faster, faster than the earth rotates underneath, therefore it will rise in the west and set in the east

The Moon would orbit very fast, somewhere between 130 mins and 90 mins, i'll work this figure out later, it's actually a simple problem, but i'm busy!

the Moon is tidally locked in this animation, even thou it doesn't *seem* like it. The reason for this is that we are Not viewing it from the center of the earth, but rather it's surface

the 420km altitude is measured surface to surface. the center to center orbital distance is 8528km

The time in the video is sped up. the moon would transverse the sky slower.. like 10 mins (rough guess at this time)

The Moon is well within the Roche limit. at this distance the Moon would break up and form a new ring system. The Earth might also be destroyed

Filmed in Huntsville Alabama"

NASA | From the Cockpit: The Best of IceBridge Arctic '13

Published on Aug 16, 2013 NASAexplorer·646 videos

"The views from the cockpit of NASA's P-3B aircraft on an Operation IceBridge campaign are truly stunning. The mission doesn't travel to both ends of the Earth for the scenery of course -- the airborne mission is there to collect radar, laser altimetry, and other data on the changing ice sheets, glaciers, and sea ice of the Arctic and Antarctic. But for those of us who aren't polar pilots, here's a selection of some of the best footage from the forward and nadir cameras mounted to the aircraft taken during IceBridge's spring deployment over Greenland and the Arctic Ocean.

FIRST ANIMATED POSTCARD SENT BY ELECTRONIC MAIL 1984 BELL LABS

Published on Aug 3, 2013 museumofcomm·13 videos

"In 1984 a group from AT&T Bell Labs gave a presentation on the 5620 (AKA the BLIT) in Paris. A 3B2 UNIX host named 'alice' came along as the 5620's file server and was also used to UUCP mail with a system back at the labs. This electronic animated postcard was sent back to the labs via UUCP during the group's trip to France.

Interested in the BLIT? The 'layers' windowing environment which the BLIT uses was later adopted and modified for the Plan 9 operating system. Plan 9 is available for free from bell-labs.com.
