This is cool! Not sure I got ALL the movies, but many for sure!
»35mm« is a shortfilm about cinema itself. We picked 35 of our favorite movies and tried to simplifly them as far as possible. The outcome is a 2 minute journey through the history of film.
Take a close look and tell us if you’ve recognized them all!

A cool look back in the history of Halloween costumes!
From Daily Infographic:
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to picking a Halloween costume I am not the most proactive. Whether it be shopping for a costume or even deciding what I want to be that year. Out of the past three years I think I have only had one costume selected before the night of, and it was only the day before that I had one that year. However not everyone procrastinates their costumes like I do.
At the afterschool program I work, as soon as October started the kids began asking what costume I had chosen to wear for Halloween. Some of the better suggestions I was offered included robot, skeleton, dinosaur, and some others. Department stores start their preparation way before any of us are even ready to accept the Summer is over and soon after Thanksgiving is shoved down our throats. Don’t get me wrong I love holidays, but the way they are commercialized these days just takes the joy out of them.
Today’s infographic A Costume for Every Era: 500 years of cultural inspiration gives us a look at the costumes we have worn over the ages and their inspiration. While one of today’s more popular costumes may be Angry Birds back in the 16th century Queen Elizabeth was one of the more popular costumes. Enjoy today’s infographic and let us know what you are planning for Halloween here! [Halloween Express]
These are incredible pictures! The way this guy lights and has the patience (1.5 hours for the 1st picture alone) to take these is very creative and artistic!
German photographer Berthold Steinhilber has an awesome technique for lighting expansive locations at night: he tediously paints in the light manually with a powerful 1.8-pound headlamp powered by a 12-volt car battery. Depending on the scale of the location, his large format film exposures last anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, with the aperture set between f/8 and f/16. The above photo took 1.5 hours at f/16.

One of the last of my Halloween posts – look at all this chocolate candy!
Pop Chart Lab’s latest creation is a kaleidoscope of junk food factoids.
What’s your favorite candy bar? Even if you’re one of those snobs who only eat that imported British stuff, your guilty pleasure of choice is probably somewhere on this crazy-detailed chart from Pop Chart Labs. (Bonus points for including Kinder Bueno, that bizarrely named treat that’s arguably more fun to say than it is to eat.)

The chart, whose Wonka-esque name is “The Delectable Kaleidoscope of Candy Bars,” plots every candy bar under the sun and visually connects its ingredients to its similarly flavored friends. So with some close inspection, you can divine that the aforementioned Kinder Bueno contains hazelnut cream and, like the much more prosaic Kit Kat, is made with wafers.
What good is this information? Unless you’re an unholy hybrid of Augustus Gloop and a reference librarian, I’m not sure. But is it sure is sweet to look at.
