First Sniff

So … you all know about that viral video where they got strangers who just met to kiss each other for the first time?  It didn’t take long for someone to come up with an awesome yet slightly sloppier/messier parody.

I’m sure there’ll be more to come but this one’s going to be hard to top.

My new hero: Terje Sorgjerd

I was going to merely link a video to facebook to share it with everyone. But on watching the videos, I decided it wasn’t going to do him justice. His work NEEDS to be seen, if you haven’t seen his incredible time lapse videos, you’re life is not complete.

The man I’m talking about? His name is Terje Sorgjerd, a Norwegian photographer also known as the master of time lapse videos. Keith Loutit, who’s that? (no offence dude). Since I’m still losing my shit over how ridiculously awesome these videos are, this post won’t have much writing it.

Here’s the first video that put him on the map (so to speak)

The Aurora from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

This video was shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia.

The next video is a more recent work, capturing the Milky Way fromthe highest summit in Spain, El Teide. It is one of the best places to photograph the stars.

The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

Like I said, my new hero.

p.s. If you’re not impressed … stop hating 😉

Double Down!

On 30th March 2011, the KFC Double Down was officially released in Sydney.  I know, it’s a long time to wait since it was released on April 12 2010 in the US.  As you would expect, we were pretty eager to go check out what was widely ridiculed as extremely unhealthy. 

The Double Down contains a full day’s worth of sodium according to the American Heart Association’s guidelines.  Of course this had no affect on sales, selling over 350 000 sandwiches in less than 10 days in Canada.

I also HAD to take a video of our experience with the double down (which we managed to get our hands on the night before).  Scroll down for Episode 1 of the series Smile
