Musicians take the place of Never Ending Story actors in surreal video

Musicians take the place of Never Ending Story actors in surreal video

Head swaps aren’t new but they are an unlimited source of fun. This video for the song On & On—by DUM—takes footage from Never Ending Story and superimposes the faces of the members of the band on the ones from the characters in the movie—they change some other things too. (NSFW-ish.)

It’s not the first time DUM makes this kind of videos, check out their take on Star Wars and Game of Thrones. They are quite hilarious too.

DUM is a band based in California Bay composed by David Unger, Scott Marsh and, Mahreen Khawaja. You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter or buy their new album here.


This is part of a series in which we are featuring really cool music videoclips. If you are a musician or a director with high quality work, please drop me a line here.

‘Duke Nukem 3D’ and leaked Yahoo passwords pass for art at this gallery

It wasn’t all that long ago that the biggest argument surrounding video games was whether or not they should be considered art — something that’s given way to more distressing topics as of late. A German gallery has an opinion on the former, however, and with the "Hurt Me Plenty" exhibit, it examines the intersection of gaming and technology and their effects on the real-world. In the video below, artist Aram Bartholl gives a guided, first-person (naturally) tour of the exhibit, explaining the reasoning behind pieces based on the idle hands animation and that of the pistol firing from Duke Nukem 3D. As Make notes, the installation melds the pixely digital imagery with physical media like wood and halftone printing to pretty great effect.

The showcase isn’t just limited to developer 3D Realms’ legendary shooter, either: there are pieces dedicated to the fetishization of GPUs and their uses beyond graphics rendering — like bitcoin mining and security cracking — too. Perhaps most interesting of all, though, are roughly 40,000 plotter-printed Yahoo passwords that were made vulnerable in 2012. Hurt Me Plenty runs through November 1st at Berlin’s DAM, but if you can’t make it in person there’s a Flickr gallery that’s just begging you to come get some.

Allthecooks rebrands app as Cookpad Recipes

Allthecooks, the recipe sharing service that’s gotten a good bit of attention as one of the initial Android Wear applications (and particularly as one that does things right) has rebranded its Android app.

The new name? Cookpad Recipes. (It’ll just show as "Cookpad" in your app drawer. Same great app, same great waffle recipes. (Mmmmmm. Waffles.) Now with a new name. We’re not sure what prompted the change, and the iOS and Windows Phone apps so far seem to be unaffected. But so long as the syrupy goodness keeps flowing, we’ll call it whatever they want.

35,000 Walrus Come Ashore In Alaska

the eric conspiracy writes "Lack of sea ice in the Arctic has forced record numbers of walrus to come ashore in Alaska. The walrus, looking for a place to rest have come ashore in Point Lay Alaska. The walrus normally rest on floating ice. "We are witnessing a slow-motion catastrophe in the Arctic," Lou Leonard, vice president for climate change at the World Wildlife Fund, said in a statement that was reported by CNN. "As this ice dwindles, the Arctic will experience some of the most dramatic changes our generation has ever witnessed. This loss will impact the annual migration of wildlife through the region, threaten the long-term health of walrus and polar bear populations, and change the lives of those who rely on the Arctic ecosystem for their way of life."

This visualization of server traffic is like the coolest game of Pong

This visualization of server traffic is like the coolest game of Pong

Taiga is "a free project management platform for startups, developers, and designers." After being mentioned by Hacker News their servers got blasted with traffic, which they turned into this cool visualization that it like a game of Pong played by a zillion players against one computer.

Each little "ball" is a request to the server

On the left: the IP numbers from the users connecting around the world

To the right: The url’s being served up

In the center: The "static calls being serviced by our front end

The brightness represents the speed with which the code written by our awesome developers delivers data (aided of course the great hardware)

Had any of the balls gone past to the right, that would have been a serve we couldn’t return. Try that, Federer!

Next year’s Hondas will have Tegra and Android inside

Curious as to just which Honda models you’d see Android pop up in first? If you had money on the 2015 Civic, Civic Tourer and CRV it’s time to collect your prize from the pool. Google’s mobile OS will appear as standard equipment in those vehicles with a little help from Nvidia, naturally, and as the GPU giant tells it, Honda Connect will be the first infotainment system to run embedded Android on a Tegra chipset. Nvidia says that Connect will sport a 7-inch customizable touch-screen display that acts a lot like what you’d expect from a smartphone or a slate. Naturally that means there are swipe, pinch and zoom gestures along with an app store for the Ice Cream Sandwich-based system. How this will all play with Android Auto, though, remains to be seen.
