Another posting of the video at Critical Commons
Today I came across this link to 20 banned or otherwise unavailable movies you can only watch online. Many good movies (like The Karen Carpenter Story with Barbies) but most excited to find link to Bruces Conner’s A Movie. I can still remember seeing his films when I was grad student in Chicago and Bruce was a visiting artist. Pivotal moment for me seeing these film.

Found this great Tumblr, I’m Google. Reblogging the from a new blog I’m following, PetaPixel – Photography and Camera News, Reviews, and Inspiration. One of the best uses of google images I’ve seen.
I’m Google is an interesting Tumblr blog started in 2011 by Baltimore-based artist Dina Kelberman. It’s a running blog collage comprising Google Image Search photographs and YouTube videos. Kelberman writes that the content is compiled into a “long stream-of-consciousness”: as you scroll down through the seemingly-never-ending flow of imagery, you’ll notice that the sections of similar images flow seamlessly from one to another based on form, composition, color, and theme.

The Pepper Spraying Cop Meme.
Best collection I have found:
@buzzfeed:Culture Buzz Officer John Pike, best known as the cop that mercilessly sprayed peaceful protesting college kids with pepper spray, got his own meme! Use the photo editor tool in the comments to easily photoshop him taking away people’s civil rights into every day situations!
YouTube Adds Creative Commons Content to Video Editor
First, did you know that YouTube has a video editor? I just found this out.
You can access more than 10,000 videos (from C-SPAN, PublicResource.org, Voice of America, Al Jazeera and others) via the CC tab on the editor. You can also tag your own content as Creative Commons, so that other users can incorporate it into their videos. (Check out Creative Commons if you are not familiar with their licensing.)
