Well, this is not something you see every day. At Burning Man 2017 you could find the unexpected – like a Giant Girl String Puppet. (Well, unless you were expecting exactly that, to each their own.) But for those who didn’t know, this massive puppet had to be 25 feet tall, and required a crane to hold it up. Yes, it was THAT big.
Of course, a stately figure of this magnitude require a name, and hers was Euterpe. The giant figure talked to the audience, leading them to a wedding that was taking place at the event. Chris Corsello was there, and captured the event on video for our viewing pleasure. With that said, be sure sure to be nice to Euterpe. After all, she is one puppet that I look up to…
In today’s online world, Google is the king. And for good reason, since they have a mature product that serves up a lot of results. But there are times that you want to search without it being added to your personal data collection. And for that, consider using DuckDuckGo.
DuckDuckGo may be lacking in the extraneous things that Google does, but it is a quality no-frills search engine. You will still find basic web searches, images, and video results, making it a valuable alternative for those times you want to search without it appearing in your life history and marketing choices (thanks, Google).
According to Apple CEO Tim Cook last year. employees should expect to start moving into its new $5 billion campus by January, 2017. While that date might be a bit optimistic, the complex is making big strides in becoming the home for Apple’s future. Currently the time schedule is to wrap up construction in first quarter 2017 with landscaping to finish soon after. We first talked about the Apple “Spaceship” campus back in 2011 with an infographic, so it’s good to see it come together.
We are afforded a bird’s eye view of the construction in progress thanks to video photographer (and drone pilot) Matthew Roberts. Let’s take a peak.
The auditorium is almost in place. We should expect this year’s iPhone 8 announcement to happen here.
Solar panels now occupy about 60 percent of the Apple Campus roof.
The atrium will be a gorgeous opening with a view to die for, no doubt.
Inside the Apple Campus ring we have continuing construction. This will have a lot of landscaping done once it is finished.
And speaking of landscaping, we can see some of the trees awaiting placement into their new home in the interior of the Apple Campus.
The tunnel and parking is almost a small city in itself. Employees are already taking advantage of these structures while they finish the campus.
I’ll be honest – 2016 has not been my favorite year. Now, I still consider myself fortunate, because it could have been much, much worse. But I am still entitled to my opinion, and my original summation stands – 2016 has not been my favorite year.
So, with that said, I took a special delight in the short produced by Friend Dog Studios. Imagine, if you will, that 2016 wasn’t just a typical year of random events. Instead, what if there was a pattern to it all. What if 2016 wasn’t a thing. Or, in the vernacular of the film, “It’s not a what. It’s a when.” <Insert creepy music here>
Watch the trailer as a happy couple rings in 2016, only to be stalked by it for the next 12 months.
There has to be a pattern.
George Michael, Rickman, Wilder, Prince, Bowie, Ali.
There’s no pattern!
Ah! – What happened?
I tried to call for help and my phone exploded.
My phone literally exploded in my hand.
England just left Europe.
Nobody knows, they just left.
