AC/DC destroy Rochester castle

Posted by Paul Smith on 23 April 2010

OK, it’s AC/DC (who I happen to like – nurr!). It’s a promo for Iron Man 2, but wow – this is possibly the best light show I’ve ever seen! Awesome use of projection on to Rochester castle. Just wish I’d seen it for real.

Rate your Voter Power

Posted by Martin Poulter on 23 April 2010

In the US electoral system, apparently someone in rural Kansas has five times as much political power as someone in urban New York, in part because the Senate has two seats per state, no matter the size of the state.

Here in the UK we don’t have a Senate, but the power of individual votes to change things varies greatly, because some of us live in safe seats where there’s little chance of a change, and some of us live in marginals.  The Voter Power site takes into account this factor, along with the population of the constituency and the proportion of votes taken by the winning candidate. It concludes that most of us, in effect, wield one quarter of a vote. It’s clearly promoting Proportional Representation, but whatever solution you think the election system needs, the site serves an interesting purpose.

Have any of those property ladder or home improvement shows on Channel 4 ever shown the real way to make your house a home? Thought not. It’s up to these guys (somewhat NSFW).

A quirky and delightful video idea that takes no money but some very careful timing.

Vote for a generation, not for a party

Posted by Martin Poulter on 21 April 2010

The Baby Boomers (those born in the generation after WWII) are the richest generation in history, at the expense of subsequent generations. They had free university tuition when their sons and daughters have to pay. They bought cheap houses before the boom and so acquired huge wealth while keeping young people off the property ladder. Their consumption created huge quantities of pollution whose costs the subsequent generations have to bear.

Two people trying to raise awareness of this intergenerational robbery are David Willetts (A Tory MP) and Neil Boorman (a former Guardian columnist). Boorman’s blog, It’s All Their Fault sets out the problem in a few pages and includes this radical voting suggestion:

Thanks Ryan for the link!

Stores That Tell You Exactly What They Are

Posted by Martin Poulter on 18 April 2010

A white guy rapping about mundane things naturally invites comparisons with Jon LaJoie, but that’s no bad thing. This one is well produced enough to keep me listening to it several times. Hearing “Orthodontist!” yelled hard over a bassy riff makes me smile every time.
