Users on slow internet often encounter a more raw side of Google Maps. Instead of a fluid experience, they see pieces of their geographical puzzle load into place haphazardly. They encounter map tiles. The stills that pull away from the moving scene in Plain Sight are sort of like map tiles in a three dimensional world. From a certain vantage point they don't affect the continuity of the world at all, but with enough of a perspective shift things start to irreparably change. London-based filmmaker Theo Tagholm writes in the description that "the photograph skims across the skin of reality."

But you know what, sometimes you get so wrapped up in your work that you don't realise you're getting a contact high. It happens. And it's the only thing that explains this video.

Picture this: you invent a time-travel device and you're on your way to meet with some very important people about it, when all of a sudden, you're jumped by your older self, who tells you that by taking the meeting, you inadvertantly kill hundreds of people because of what you created. Can you destroy your greatest creation? Welcome to Monday Night Web Movie.


Not every Oscar-worthy film is a mammoth, Speilbergian effort. Small stuff's good too, and what better showcase than the Oscar nominated animated shorts. You've probably heard of Paperman, and the animation tech behind it, but another one, Adam and Dog has popped up on YouTube and it's worth a watch.
