Moving on

Simply amazing, pure emotions, speachless. A most touching animation from Ainslie Henderson.

Awesome walking city

This is an interesting concept from “Universal Everything” studio, that emerged from the combination of architecture, evolution and movement. Referencing the utopian visions of 1960’s architecture practice Archigram, Walking City is a slowly evolving video sculpture. The language of materials and patterns seen in radical architecture transform as the nomadic city walks endlessly, adapting to the environments she encounters.

Keep calm and…

…carry on. This is what the original poster states. As simple as that. But in the past years the “Keep calm” poster became viral. Just Google it, you’ll see what I mean. You’ll find hundreds, almost all of them using the same “template” as the original poster. This poster:

But where did it all start? How old is the original poster? What was it’s main purpose? You can get the answers in the YouTube video entitled “The story of Keep calm and carry on”. Enjoy! (:

In plain English

I started this blog writing in my native tongue, Romanian. It’s easier to write using the language you know best. At least for those of us that actually know their own language. But then again, there are things that cannot simply be translated. It just isn’t the same. They get lost in translation, so to speak. The first example that comes to mind, is a joke:

An Australian soldiers goes to enroll into the British army. The British officer asks him:

“Did you came here to die”. And the Australian replies:

“No, I came here yesterday.”

So, in order to be able to share with you stuff that only makes sense in English, I’ve started this new category. And like the other blog categories, this one also has a graphic symbol resembling the main “redeight8” logo, that will appear in the top right corner of each English post. This brings the redeight8 logo family to a total of 12:

But I’ll have to be careful, if I don’t want to end up looking like this guy:
