Singapore

A beautiful, well done, video of the city/state Singapore. It brought back good memories of my 1999 Christmas trip to Singapore. For those who have not been there, it is a clean, safe, and affluent city that is way more civilized than the major cities of the West. You cannot understand this until you spend a week or so in such a  city where the citizens are highly educated and who respect other people especially their family members and teachers. How novel?

"These images and these sounds were recorded during a travel from "Toulouse" to "Paris", and from "Paris" to "Martinique". We see the North and the South of "Martinique", the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, during the rainy season in July, 2011."

We the People Have Found Our Voice--Occupy Wall Street

An inside look at the diversity of people who are protesting in NY. This video is very done at night and gives you an idea of what is happening as a part of this protest. You have a brief glimpse of Michael Moore talking with some protesters.

Aerostat

An interesting video in which a balloon is launched with a video camera. It shows the beautiful landscape of what I think is the Western US as it rises into the upper atmosphere.

Right Here ALL OVER (Occupy Wall Street)

Finally, American youth put down their electronic toys to help move our country in a positive direction. We need a revolution like the one from my generation, the ones who fought the useless war in Vietnam. We changed the world and so can today's youth.

 Golden Age--Somewhere

"Sequel to the award winning GOLDEN AGE - THE SIMULATION, 'SOMEWHERE' attempts to visualise the notion of a 'downloaded architecture'. We are in a time where much of what we do is online. The notion of the online will radically change, the notion of the computer and the home will merge. We will download parks and places to relax, have skype phone calls with simulated telepresence of our friends and family, be immersed in nanorobotic replications of any kind of objects or furnishings downloaded on credit based systems. The local becomes the global and the global becomes the local. Consumer based capitalism would change forever."

ESPN Dream On Sports Montage

This is one of the best sports montages that I have seen, covering all sports important to Americans. I like the brief view of Johnny Unitas and Cal Ripkin and many more.
