Speak of The Ghoul…

Violet Ward and Her Lover

Alice Austen Photo. Violet Ward and her lover

Very distressing dreams.  I had apparently killed my wife and did an extraordinarily poor job of hiding the evidence and my every subsequent action seemed to make things worse.  However, the authorities investigating the crime were doing an equally as poor job, and no forward progress was ever made in uncovering the murderer

Stranger still is that I was desperately trying to hide my guilty actions from my wife, who though dead and disposed of was also still in the house, very much alive and carrying on with the day-to-day activities.

Le voyage dans la lune – 1902 – Georges Méliès – In Color

Screen shot 2013-02-16 at 9.00.54 AM

This is not a “colorized” version of this seminal little film. Via Wiki:

Like many of Méliès’s films, A Trip to the Moon was sold in both black-and-white and hand-colored versions. A hand-colored print, the only one known to survive, was rediscovered in 1993 by the Filmoteca de Catalunya. It was in a state of almost total decomposition, but a frame-by-frame restoration was launched in 1999 and completed in 2010 at the Technicolor Lab of Los Angeles — and after West Wing Digital Studios matched the original hand tinting by colorizing the damaged areas of the newly restored black and white. The restored version finally premiered on 11 May 2011, eighteen years after its discovery and 109 years after its original release, at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, with a new soundtrack by the French band Air.[3] It was released by Flicker Alley as a 2-disc Blu-Ray/DVD edition, also including the documentary The Extraordinary Voyageabout its restoration on 10 April 2012.[4]

Also: The Lost Ending—

“Lost” ending

The final sequence depicts a celebratory parade in honor of the travelers’ return, including the unveiling of a commemorative statue.[1] This ending sequence was considered lost until 2002, when a well preserved complete print was discovered in a barn in France. The extended version was screened at the Pordenone Silent Film Festival in 2003, and the sequence was included and restored in full for the 2012 Blu-Ray edition of the film.

There’s actually much of interest on that damn wiki page, including a chat w/ Scorcese, and more. Enjoy. Happy Saturday. And cheers to feuilleton.

Timelapse of Boston’s nemopocalypse

I pointed my camera out my window for the blizzard of 2013, called by some NEMO. I started the timelapse at 2PM, shortly after the first snow started falling, and stopped it thirty hours later, once the sun had set and the bulk of the cleanup was done. The camera took a photo every minute, which (at 30fps) means you’re seeing an hour every two seconds.

Apologies for the slight discontinuities — I had to unmount the camera from the tripod to swap batteries every six hours or so. I started with the tripod upright, but once the sun went down the camera began auto-focusing on the droplets of water on the window instead of the street. I solved this by tilting the tripod so the camera was too close to the window to focus on it; that’s why the angle jumps around a little in the beginning.

And, apparently, I don’t know how dates work. That should be Friday, 2/8/13 to Saturday, 2/9/13, of course.

(That’s me waving at the camera for a few frames around 0:33.)
