In Praise of Unusual Flying Objects

Yesterday’s visions are the ideas of tomorrow. The gallery of unusual flying objects is amazing. And of course: you might spend hours in search of uncommon photography on LIFE.com. Really wow!


1949: Children try to catch toys that were released by a kite.


1948: A „K190“ helicopter attempting a three-point landing atop the heads of three women holding plywood squares as landing „pads“.


1956: Flying platform being tested at an Air Force base.


1959: Ascending gondola trailing disk-shaped radio antenna during lift-off for high-altitude flight to observe the planet Venus.


1957: Test flight of the „strap-on“ helicopter.

Killing Error

These fantastic illustrations by Ben6835 are characterised by sadism and bloody violence. Be sure to visit his Flickr account for all the lightly eccentric works!

Podcast November 2012


For the cover I used a photo by Jens Schott Knudsen [CC BY-NC 2.0]

Probably the episode with the lowest quote of netlabel releases so far and a lot self releases on bandcamp. Musically I think it has a very relaxing atmosphere , some acoustica / folkish songs on start, but the main part is electronic based music – with a wide range of styles.

Errata: the second track is not from the demo album by Thorn & Shout but from their main album released in September 2012.

Tame Impala – Lonerism

Folgt man einer gewissen Euphorie, landet man dieser Tage automatisch bei Tame Impala. Zögerlich drauf eingelassen, jetzt aber alles verstanden. Passt!

Momentum

»Momentum is a 3-year project in which photographer Alejandro Guijarro travelled to the great Quantum Mechanics institutions of the world and photographed the blackboards just as he found them. Once removed from their institutional environment the large drawings take on a far more artistic appearance.« How true!
