First allow me to preface by saying that I am not an eligible voter in the 2020 United States Presidential election — what I am however is a stickler for catchy party tunes:

With the world on lockdown, a Back to the Future fan recruited fellow fans from around the world to help create a remake of Back to the Future Part II, one scene at a time.

A palindrome is a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backwards as forwards (racecar, madam, nurses run), and today’s date happens to be one and a special one at that.

02/02/2020 is the only one of its kind this century making it a very rare eight-digit palindrome.

The previous eight-digit palindrome like this was 11/11/1111, 909 years ago. We’ll only have to wait another 101 years for 12/12/2121, but the next one after that comes on March 3, 3030.

Darn it I wont be alive to see the next one. Considering that the record for the longest human lifespan is that of Jeanne Calment of France (1875–1997), who lived to age 122 years, 164 days, nah there’s no way. Plus I think men die younger than women. Plus I’d be so old, I probably wouldn’t a give a shit about no date. I’d be way too busy dreaming of sipping piña coladas with Kim Novak, oh feet fail me now!

Here’s Weird Al Yankovic with a song written completely with palindromes in the style of Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues”

The Smashing Pumpkins — “Thirty-Three”

•November 26, 2019 • Leave a Comment

The music video for “Thirty-Three”, directed by Billy Corgan and then-girlfriend Yelena Yemchuk, is a series of images shot in stop-motion, ending with a re-enactment of the Mellon Collie album cover.

Because the group’s videos so often avoid the literal interpretation of lyrics, the video for “Thirty-Three” was created with images closely related to the words of the song, as an intentional stylistic departure.

Life In A Different Light: Under The Microscope

•November 11, 2019 • Leave a Comment

Martin Kristiansen of My Microscopic World used a polarized light source, a lab microscope, and an iPhone to capture these incredibly detailed, colorful, and otherworldly images of insect larvae, isopods, and tiny crustaceans:

A few weeks ago, I modified my microscope to be able to use polarized light to illuminate my samples. This gives some incredibly beautiful and alien-like footage, so I of course made a video with this technique. All footage in this video is shoot on an iPhone mounted on my microscope with a LabCam adapter. [More images: Instagram]

Japanese nature artist Kusabanaasobi, which means “plant play” in Japanese, creates adorable origami creatures out of leaves, grass, flowers, acorns and peanut shells.

Photos of Japan’s Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons by Keiichiro Yasugi

Japan and cosplay go hand-in-hand, so it’s no surprise that every year the gigantic Halloween celebration in Shibuya yields a mass of creative costumers. An often overlooked celebration in Kyoto, however, offers a just as impressive—and possibly more terrifying—assembly of costumes.

On the third Saturday of every October, Kyoto plays host to a recreation of the Hyakki Yagyō (Night Parade of One Hundred Demons), where a massive swarm of Japanese ghouls and monsters are unleashed in pandemonium.

To recreate the legendary event of yokai invading the human world, Kyoto’s Taishogun Shopping Street (which already has dozens of yokai-themed shops and spooky sculptures) welcomes an event called the “Yokai Parade”, where hundreds of people dress up in amazing costumes based off of ghastly creatures from Japanese folklore.

Photographer Keiichiro Yasugi took some excellent pictures of the frightful night and showcased them on Twitter:
