“The War of the Worlds was broadcast on October 30th, 1938 on CBS radio, directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles. “The first two thirds were presented as a series of simulated news bulletins, which suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. “In the… Read more » The post Letter regarding Orson Welles “War of the Worlds” broadcast appeared first on Retronaut. via Retronaut http://ift.tt/18cXlZ8 Tagged: IFTTT, Feedly, tumblr, iconolith via my Tumblr http://iconolith.tumblr.com/post/67348342938
Looking like a haute couture treatment of “As the World Falls Down” from Labyrinth, by way of Peter Jackson’s Beautiful Creatures, the “Director’s Cut” of this Louis Vuitton ad above, titled “L’Invitation au Voyage,” is pretty stunning.

There isn't anything particularly revolutionary about these tutorial videos, save for the amazingly dry humor. So dry, in fact, that I'm going to grab an icy drink now. Be sure to watch through to the credits at the end so you can enjoy the music - perfect for this video. http://youtu.be/766fE70_Ecc
Another new circuit for this morning. This one started off with a 4mi warm up run. Because it was the weekend I could wait until there was some light outside before I walked out the door. Don't get me wrong, I love running in the dark, but this time of year my neighborhood is VERY dark. Once the snow starts falling it will reflect enough light to at least make it easy to see the road/trail surfaces. The rest of the workout is detailed above. I do want to make sure and keep this one in mind for the winter when the temps drop down far enough that going...
Remember suicides? No not the running drills you had to do in basketball practice. The other ones. If you're not sure you know what they are, the image below illustrates them well. I had forgotten how much I like them, they're also referred to as a half burpee, but still deliver results. The faster you do them, the more effective they are. I warmed up with a short 2mi run and by the end of the whole workout, which only lasted 40 minutes, my core was really feeling the burn.
This workout was inspired by a recent video Zuzka Light posted on YouTube. The original workout is meant for those days where there doesn't seem to be time for anything, even a quick workout to get your heart rate up for a few minutes. I'll embed that video below for you to check out if you're interested, and if you like to see how to do a kick-through pushup. I had never heard of them before watching this and I'm hooked! They are great for your upper body and core. The workout above is much more of a strength-building and cardio workout. Change the level of difficulty by increasing...
This recipe landed in my inbox a few days ago from one of the Spartan Race newsletters. I wanted to give it a try mainly because it called for millet, coconut, and chickpea flours instead of wheat, which sounded interesting. Admittedly, I thought it could go either way - either really great or worse than a lab experiment. Fortunately, it turned out to be really wonderful. I didn't have actual millet flour or coconut flour, so I "milled" my own using an old coffee grinder. It worked well enough, but certainly wasn't as fine as the actual flours would have been. I'm sure this changed the texture of the cake some. True to form, I made...
What a fabulous idea!
