Stunning High Res Photo of San Francisco After 1906 Earthquke.

High resolution picture of the aftermath of the tragic 1906 earthquake. This is a great photograph and would be amazing today, let alone 1906. The drama of the moment, matched with the incredible use of limited technology creates a powerful effect.

Dancing Buildings

These buildings are scheduled to be built, first in Dubai and then in other cities including New York.  Each floor can move independently or apparently in unison.  The condo owners will determine the amount of rotation.  Between each floor are wind turbines which help power the building.  It also uses prefab floors which are attached to the center core and that reduced the complexity of construction.  Check out the video read more here and get ready for a new look to city skylines.

McCartney – Dance Tonight

Here is the first video in support of the new McCartney CD Memory Almost Full. It’s a fun little song that probably runs a little longer than it should given how little it changes, but it is catchy. The video is from the director of “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry and apparently stars Natalie Portman (although because of the ghosting effects it is very hard to tell it’s her!) It’s a wacky little thing… but fun to check out.
