Jon Stewart Takes On America’s Oil Dependence

With Obama promising a plan to move America toward a non-petroleum based future, Jon Stewart took the time to give a little history lesson on the show last night. As he pointed out, Obama is certainly not the first President to come on TV and talk about a plan for energy-independence. No, no. It seems that going as far back as Nixon, every President has broadcast the same, if not similar, pledge.

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me eight times, I must be a f–king idiot.”

The strikingly similar footage of each of the last eight presidents painted a bleak picture of our reliance on oil, but also served as a platform for Stewart to mock our nation’s leaders dating back to 1974. The latter, as you can imagine, was quite funny.

Pacific Star II by Colin Rich

This is the second trip of my home made high altitude weather balloon photography project, Pacific Star. 

The balloon was launched at 5:37pm (PST) from Oxnard, CA and reached an altitude of 125,000 feet snapping photos and recording video along the way.

The balloon burst, the parachute deployed, and the payload floated down for 35 minutes, landing near an old olive orchard Northeast of Santa Paula.

“Refait” is a remake of the football World Cup match between France and Germany (Seville, Spain, 1982). 

Shot by Pied La Biche in Villeurbanne (France), every aspect of the fifteen last minutes of the match was carefully reconstructed : players, positions, gestures, intensity, drama etc. It consists in shifting the traditional game area into the urban environment. Each sequence takes place in one or several locations and then the city temporarily becomes the lab for unsual experiments.

The soundtrack is made up of the original commentaries mixed with interviews of the audience recorded during the shooting.
