60 Free Film Noir Movies
in | February 11th, 2011 During the 1940s and 50s, Hollywood entered a “noir” period, producing riveting films based on hard-boiled fiction. These films were set in dark locations and shot in a black & white aesthetic that fit like a glove. Hardened men wore fedoras and forever smoked cigarettes. Women played the femme fatale role brilliantly. Love was the surest way to death. For more free films, please visit our big collection of Free Movies Online.

Everything I Know: 42 Hours of Buckminster Fuller's Visionary Lectures Free Online (1975) Think of the name Buckminster Fuller, and you may think of a few oddities of mid-twentieth-century design for living: the Dymaxion House, the Dymaxion Car, the geodesic dome. But these artifacts represent only a small fragment of Fuller’s life and work as a self-styled “comprehensive anticipatory design scientist.” In his decades-long project of developing and furthering his worldview — an elaborate humanitarian framework involving resource conservation, applied geometry, and neologisms like “tensegrity,” “ephemeralization,” and “omni-interaccommodative” — the man wrote over 30 books, registered 28 United States patents, and kept a diary documenting his every fifteen minutes. In January 1975, Fuller sat down to deliver the twelve lectures that make up Everything I Know, all captured on video and enhanced with the most exciting bluescreen technology of the day. Parts 1-12 on the Internet Archive: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Kibardin Design Clock - White & White One of the first clocks stocked at Twisted Time, the Kibardin Design Clock in White & White remains one of our most popular pieces thanks to its simplicity and versatility. The design of a clock that is nothing more than standalone 3D digits focuses the design on its function - to tell the time - though this could be to a room if you choose to mount it on a wall, or it could be just for you if you keep it as a desk clock. The White & White name refers to the white frame and white LED lights that make this design instantly stand out. Displaying the time in 24 hour mode, it's possible to change the brightness settings depending on the time of day or the room it's in, and there's also the option to set an alarm. The White & White Clock by Kibardin Design measures 28.5cm in width and 11cm in height and is powered by a mains adaptor, though it also has a battery that will keep telling the time if there is a power outage.
