Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull – May 1st and 2nd, 2010 from Sean Stiegemeier on Vimeo.

Another stunning video shot on the Canon 5D, this time of the active volcano in Iceland.

Sean Stiegemeier was inspired to get out and shoot the event after the saw all the ‘mediocre pictures’ being shown on tv.

Great colour. Great music. Love it.

Early days yet but it could be a great device for learning / reading / playing.

LastHistory – interactive visualization your Last.fm history, obviously

Takes a while to initalise the first time, but once the data is in there it’s loads of fun to play with. It’s also got a really nice ‘personal mode’ that hooks up to iPhoto to display pics taken at the time you listened to the music.

About to go stellar. OK Go “This Too Shall Pass”

via YouTube

Filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The “machine” was designed and built by the band, along with members of Synn Labs over the course of several months.

This is the Rube Goldberg machine version. In other words, a video depicting complex devices that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways.

Currently at 679 views. Expect a jump soon.
