Twitter-GIF creates MoiréBeautiful GIF by Étienne Jacob and I love the way this looks in that tiny twitter-compression shown on tweetdeck on a lowrez-display on my old macbook air (GIF below), because this animation with these circular patterns triggers a moiré effect which is triggered by the algorithm that moves the circles and the position of the elements and the pixel smoothing (anti-alias) effect of the operating system. The fonts you read on a screen are smooth, because the pixels are not black and white, but… Gib mir den Rest, Baby!
Ringo Lam R.I.P.
Ringo Lam ist im Alter von nur 63 Jahren verstorben: „Lam was found unconscious and unresponsive in his bed on Saturday, according to the Hong Kong publication Apple Daily. When the officials arrived, he was already dead. No foul play was suspected and no further details were released.“
Ringo Lam hatte in den 80ern das chinesische Action-Kino mit großgemacht und lieferte mit City on Fire die Inspiration für Tarantinos Reservoir Dogs. Mach's gut Ringo, und danke für die ganzen Ballereien.
