“At Doom’s Gate” Played on Eight Floppy Drives

In the right hands, a bunch of floppy drives can make some very beautiful music (see Phantom of the Floppera). YouTube user MrSolidSnake745 makes uses of eight floppy drives to recreate the music from the first map of the first episode of the venerable FPS title, Doom.

Check out the floppy drive version of “At Doom’s Gate” below.

Doesn’t that bring back memories? Hit the jump to hear the original piece of music.

We Review: The Darkness II

There are few things more awesome than controlling demonic tentacle arms with murderous intent, accompanied by a dwarf-sized gargoyle sidekick who wears the union jack like a dress and has a cockney accent to match. Unless of course said tentacles come with a disturbed inner voice and a mind of their own. The Darkness II offers you all of this, in a familiar yet unique presentation. Find out what I thought of it after the break.

Historic Explosions Reproduced in Cauliflower

The images of history’s famous explosions have been burned into our memory. Illustrator Brock Davis has reproduced some these disasters using a rather unusual medium.

Using the florets from the cauliflower vegetable, Davis recreated the bombing of Nagasaki, the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger, and the fiery Hindenburg disaster. Have a look at his historic explosions in cauliflower after the jump.

We Review: Grand Slam Tennis 2

EA is well known for the sports games it produces, most notably the FIFA branded soccer games (the latest of which, FIFA 12, is still one of the best-selling soccer games around). I’m not a sports nut, however, so it was with a little bit of trepidation that I put EA’s Grand Slam Tennis 2 into the drive tray of my console and fired it up. Find out in this review what surprises, if any, this game had in store for me.

Welcome to Earth

From Luc Bergeron, the video editor who earlier created a music video for Rolling in the Deep, comes yet another crowd-sourced montage. This time, it’s a subject we quite fond of — time-lapse. Using clips from 179 other time-lapse videos, Bergeron creates a gorgeous tourist video for the Earth. Check out Welcome to Earth below.

The videos used in the creation of this video are listed on Bergeron’s Google+ post.

Amazing L.E.D. Snowboarder Lights up Darkness

Arty fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton takes to the French Alps to shoot snowboarder William Hughes as he carves his way through the snow. Hughes wears a custom-built L.E.D.-covered suit and illuminates the surroundings as he passes by, like a “lone character made of light surfing through darkness”.

Have a look at Sutton’s Glowing Man below.

Temporal Distortion: An Ethereal Time-Lapse by Randy Halverson

Terje Sørgjerd and Randy Halverson are my two favourite time-lapse photographers. We posted about both of them in the past, and just a few days ago Halverson published his latest video, Temporal Distortion.

Using his custom rig, he shot in central South Dakota, Utah, and Colorado capturing the night skies, aurorae, and the Milky Way. A meteor makes an appearance too, its so-called persistent train lingered in the frame for over 30 minutes but lasts a fleeting second in the video. Temporal Distortion is magical, have a look at it below.

For more technical details on how he created this most amazing video, visit Halverson’s website, Dakota Timelapse.

Pop Culture Math Equations

Scottish illustrator Matt Cowan explains the origin of some of your favourite characters be they from TV, film, or comic books. Cowan illustrates them in a minimalist way and uses simple arithmetic operations, such as subtracting an eye to create a series of blind super heroes, or adding a cricket bat and a shadowy pharmaceutical company to his Zombie Maths series.

Cowan’s pop culture math equations add up to awesome. See them after the jump.
