Is it possible to jump off the tube at Mansion House station, along the Circle and District lines of the London Underground, and rejoin the same train at Cannon Street station, by sprinting, at street level, between the two stations, that are a couple of hundred metres apart? Assuming there are no delays and the like, that is.
Make no noyse nor use any meane, whereby thou maiest disturbe thy schoolefellowes: much lesse thy schoolemaster. Be a patterne of good manners, industry, curtesie, and obeying thy Master unto all in the Shoole. So shall thy praise be great, and thy profit greater.
A re-mix of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 war epic Apocalypse Now featuring characters from the “Winnie the Pooh” stories. It’s not like Apocalypse Pooh is new either, it was made by Todd Graham in 1987, and was re-mastered a few years ago. The things you learn…
Whose to know if the dance mix you’re listening to is the product of a bot, or a real, live, human DJ? A technique known as miss-mixing, and one that is increasingly being employed by DJs, will help listeners make the distinction. In short, miss-mixing is the practice of deliberately making a mistake while re-mixing music.
“I like to drop in on the second or third beat, leave it play for a couple of bars and then quickly correct myself,” explained Mr. Briscoe. “It’s subtle yet affective, I call it The Perplexer. People who don’t know what they’re listening to won’t even notice it while other DJs will be thinking ‘that’s a great mistake, who is this DJ Whopper lad anyway?’ d’ya know what I mean?”
Get it, DJ Whopper? I suppose the… practice is a little like a writer purposely adding errors to their text, and seeing how many times the work is republished by people claiming they wrote the piece themselves, before the fault is noticed.
I first heard about the Boring Conference – “a one-day celebration of the mundane, the ordinary, the obvious and the overlooked” – more than three and a half years ago. From all accounts boring sells, as the event has taken place every year since then, and from all indications will return again in 2015.
Time Travel Lover, a short film by Elisha Yaffe. If time travel were possible, this may be how many of us might want to take advantage of it… to stop a hook up that should not have been, in its tracks. Problem is though, these sorts of things are never quite as simple as they appear to be.
A roller coaster like art installation, created by German artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth, located in Duisburg, allows revellers to partake of its ups and down at their own pace… walking, rather than hurtling along the tracks, strapped into a car.
Wandering through space without a purpose. Getting old and getting lost. That’s what interstellar space exploration might actually be like, given the time it’ll take to get anywhere… a game by Pol Clarissou.
