Does This Chocolate Taste Red To You?

I noticed the following question in the Reddit RSS Feed today and was drawn as if a moth to flame:

Hmmmmm...

If we had no eyes then we would be unaware of the existence of color. What if we are are missing an entire aspect of everything simply because we do not have the organ to detect it?


As interesting as its accompanying comments and discussions were, the best takeaway for me was in a comment by neegs suggesting the  viewing of this video in the context of the posted question.

Please Watch:
Is Your Red The Same as My Red?

Enjoy!

Blame Lou Montulli

Lou "Blink" Montulli

Lou Montulli

 


One of my favorite things about the internet is how certain links can lead to a virtual world of hidden adventures. I found myself "geeking-out" as I surfed the wave generated by an investigation into the infamous [smiley:;)] Lou "blink" Montulli[1]. If you have any geek in your blood, I bet you too will have a good time if you choose to hop on into the following "gopher" hole.


 

Louis J. Montulli II is one of those (mostly) unsung heroes of the internet (despite being one of only six inductees into the World Wide Web Hall of Fame announced at the first international conference on the World Wide Web in 1994.) Widely regarded as the creator of the "blink" tag, he bears responsibility for bringing blinking text to the internet browser in 1994. He is also responsible for HTTP cookies and several other innovations during his stint with Netscape.

Lou also built "The Amazing Fishcam", one of the earliest live image websites (now featured in the margins here on BlogDogIt.com in the form of a  widget.)

In 1991 and 1992 he co-authored a text web browser called Lynx with Michael Grobe and Charles Rezac while he was at the University of Kansas. This web browser was one of the first available and is still in use today. Lou Montulli has his own wikipedia page (which is the source of many of the facts presented in this article.)

I Am KawehiI Am Kawehi is fast becoming one of my favorite singer, songwriter, musicians. This tune has got to be one of my favorites ATM. Since she was nice enough to share it via her BandCamp page the least I can do is embed it here (for easy access) and ask you people with money to support this artist.

Yo!

Get to know I Am Kawehi

Da-BombAndrew Rader brings us this Video compilation showing every nuclear detonation from 1945-1998 in two minutes, starting with the test in New Mexico and two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The month and year are shown at the top right, and the total number of detonations are shown at the bottom right. Flags indicate detonations by country (USA, USSR/Russia, UK, France, China, India, Pakistan). Nuclear stockpiles peaked at 60,000. We have made significant strides in reduction, but we still have a long way to go. - Source: YouTube via @marsrader

Tradition: Indy Auto Show

Indy Auto Show - Something for Everybody.The first Indianapolis Auto Show was held in 1907. This was two years before the opening of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and four years prior to the inaugural running of the Indianapolis 500. It should come as no surprise that Hoosiers do enjoy their automobiles and each year thousands gather to see the latest and greatest offerings from their favorite manufactures.

The accompanying slide-show takes a look back at some Indianapolis Auto Shows from years gone by.

Into Each Happiness a Little Horror Must Fall

WTF?

Comedy | Horror | MusicalVenturing aimlessly around the internet oftentimes results in seeing things that cannot be unseen. Sometimes an image is so compelling that it leaves you with little choice but to take a closer look. The picture above is one of those images that demand more than a casual glance and investigating its origin is what led me to the discovery of The Happiness of the Katakuris; quite possibly the greatest Comedy Horror Musical since The Rockey Horror Picture Show.

In searching around to see what others were saying about this film I happened upon Film Grimoire's review of "Happiness" and as a result found another gem of a web site to share with the fans of BlogDogIt.

Enjoy!

Film Grimoire

the-happiness-of-the-katakuris-eastern-starThe Happiness
of the Katakuris

(2001)
Surrealist, horror, musical, black comedy

Takashi Miike’s musical-horror-comedy The Happiness of the Katakuris (2001) follows the exploits of the failure-prone members of the Katakuri family as they start up their quiet mountain bed & breakfast inn. As business starts picking up, and all their guests begin dying of various ridiculous causes, the Katakuri family is forced to band together in the face of supernatural events.

Takashi Miike is responsible for such shockingly violent films as Ichi the Killer (2001), Audition (1999), and Izo (2004). It is no shock that The Happiness of the Katakuris contains quite a bit of violence and death. But is it surprising that the majority of that violence is presented as humorous, and often times can actually be quite funny. Only Takashi Miike, the master of on-screen death, can present the multiple deaths of innocent people as shamefully hilarious. There were moments where I caught myself laughing and actually thought, “Wow, I’m a horrible person for finding this funny.”

From Patrick Higgs Facebook Page:
Yesterday spent all day the Film Festival for SWIFF. It the was first one they held and hopefully the first of many more to come. Unfortunately my film didn't win any of the awards, but it was well received and had a great round of applause at the end - and laughs in the right places. I realized it wasn't going to ever be perfect, but I was happy with the end product. Thank you to everyone involved in making it and helping in any way. I look forward to making another one soon and hopefully get better each time. On behalf of the Vampires of Dubois County, you are commanded to watch, and if you live in Dubois County, I will guarantee you in the coming weeks you will see more and more Vampires coming out of the coffin-maybe even knocking at your door.
