Life imitating art

I came across a series of videos that are composed from a series of photographs taken using using time-lapse techniques and interesting lenses. I thought my photography nerd friends would especially like them.

I think they look like the models my brother used to make for his train set. Be sure to check out all the other videos by Keith Loutit and note that they’re available in HD for maximum viewing pleasure.

43 Things

I’ve known about 43 Things for a while but never made an account or really given it too much thought. It’s a website where people can make a loose list of goals or tasks that they want to achieve. There’s no real formal structure to the goal so it’s not a “to-do” list in the traditional sense. Also, it seems to be used for more longer-term goals rather than “buy some milk on the way home from work.” You simply represent your goal with a short sentence, which means that some people set lofty “one day I’ll get there” goals whilst others prefer “before this time I’ll do” type goals.

Last year I had a similar project going myself, which I managed to mostly achieve. I’m going to start using 43 Things and see if it works for me. I’ve entered a few goals into the system and will build upon it as I go. I don’t want to “me too” another person’s goal unless there’s real legitimacy that I’ll undertake them.

I was surprised that only 19 other people are fans of Office Space.
