Animated Gifs An artist known only as Rrrrrrrroll will leave you spinning with some gif art that works hard to put the art in the gif genre. And yes that was intended as a pun. I guess you could think of the work as ‘animated photography’. If you know or find any more information about the artist please drop a line or two in the comment section. So I sorta owe Matthew DiVito AKA Mr. It’s been a long long time since I walked down the shady animated gif path but you know it’s Friday. Anyone who has frequented this site over the past few years will know there is a special place in my heart for animated gifs which can sometimes be a point of contention since some people think they are pure and pointless trite nonsense. Amalgamation is 1:24 minutes of morphing, rippling, mutating, animated goodness. Uhh. Just something we stumbled upon and though was cool. Gif shop is kind of a cool little app for your iPhone that allows you to make animated gifs via the camera in your phone and then publish them quickly.

Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence By Richard Wrangham, Dale Peterson. Chapter One: Paradise Lost “You will be killed!” bonobo → anthropoid ape, resembling but smaller than the common chimpanzee. But killing was the reason we were in Africa. Zaire → a republic in central Africa; achieved independence from Belgium in 1960. To get to the bonobos, we first had to reach Bukavu, a town on the eastern side of Zaire , just across the border from Rwanda. To fly directly from Uganda to Zaire was impossible because the shaky Zairean government, fighting for control of the country, had closed all international airports, and driving overland was not advised because of discouraging reports about bandits and guerrillas. Tutsis → a member of a Bantu speaking people living in Rwanda and Burundi. But Burundi was not at peace either. Melchior Ndadaye → (1953 〜 1993) Burundian intellectual and politician. The airport of Bujumbura was quiet, just about empty, and watched over by men with guns when we flew in from Kampala on February 12.

GIF ART Web Relic, the Animated GIF, Becomes Medium for Art More often than not, animated GIFs are reserved for quick chuckles. Cat portals , face palms , and even the occasional girl punch , are this limited media format's bread and butter. But the current crop of digital artists are turning to this former Net-annoyance to create Web-based art. Sites like Rhizome , 8-Bit Today , and Nasty Nets dig through the deepest recesses of the Internet to find these oddball creations. Many pieces of animated GIF art are abstract designs , while others relish in their dated appearance -- incorporating '80s and '90s goth and cyberpunk influences as well as classic video game elements .

home | | eclectic excerpts delivered to your email every day from editor Richard Vague Today's encore selection -- from Quantum: Einstein, Bohr, and the Great Debate about the Nature of Reality by Manjit Kumar. Albert Einstein (1879-1955), the physicist who developed the theory of relativity, was born and spent his earliest years in Germany: " 'The people of Ulm are mathematicians' was the unusual medieval motto of the city on the banks of the Danube in the south-western corner of Germany where Albert Einstein was born. It was an apt birthplace on 14 March 1879 for the man who would become the epitome of scientific genius. The back of his head was so large and distorted, his mother feared her newborn son was deformed. "In October 1885, with the last of the private Jewish schools in Munich closed for more than a decade, the six-year-old Einstein was sent to the nearest school. "As a schoolboy he preferred solitary pursuits and enjoyed nothing more than constructing ever-taller houses of cards.

LEGO® Festival of Play I AM NOT AN ARTIST - AN ANIMATED GIF PARANOIA ABOUT NONSTOP DESIGN WORKERS Male Bats Caught Performing Oral Sex on Females Male bats perform oral sex on females, apparently to make sex last longer, researchers say. These findings, the first discovery of male-to-female oral sex in bats, match prior studies revealing that female bats perform fellatio, or oral sex, on male bats. Scientists analyzed a colony of about 420 Indian flying foxes (Pteropus giganteus) roosting in a single fig tree in southern India, near the village of Nallachampatti. This fruit-eating bat is one of the largest bats in the world. Over the course of more than 13 months, using binoculars and a video camera, researchers witnessed 57 cases of sex ― oral and intercourse ― usually in the morning. "Apart from humans, bats also exhibit oral sex as a courtship behavior," said Ganapathy Marimuthu, a bat researcher at Madurai Kamaraj University in India. Initially, males groomed their penises to go erect before approaching females. When the females stopped moving, the males started licking the females’ vaginas ― the act known as cunnilingus.
