Pour a Colortini for Tom

Tom Snyder, a TV favourite of mine from days gone by, has passed away at age 71. I always loved his style. His catch phrase: "Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures, now, as they fly through the air."

Bye, Tom.

Impressive hi-res panoramic view of Harlem. Artist Gerard Maynard took more than 2000 photos over a 2 hour period, then stitched them together. You can zoom from the roof all the way into distant windows.

Photographer and filmmmaker Sean Smith spent 2 months with American soldiers in Iraq. The footage he got is intense, heartbreaking and enlightening.

This is not the world we should be living in.
