dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

Dazed: Studio Ghibli’s back with a co-produced silent film.

It’s an 80-minute, full-length feature that tells the tale of a sailor stranded on an uninhabited tropical island, grappling with the prospect of an eternal life of solititude with only crabs and fish for company. He tries in vain to escape, before a mysterious woman turns up out of the sea, along with a giant red turtle.” In case you’re exhausted of caped and armored crusaders at the cinema.

PVC/ART OF THE CUT: Interview with “Captain America: Civil War” video editor.

I would argue that the rhythm is not something determined by the location of a single cut, but is something that appears after multiple cuts – like a drummer, you don’t have a rhythm with a single drum beat ... there has to be a sequence of drum beats to have rhythm.” YES!

Ballistic parachutes for drones? I’m surprised noone thought of it before. Even me!

Register.UK: Adobe scrambles to untangle itself from QuickTime after Apple throws it under a bus.

In the meantime, Adobe’s Windows customers now have little choice but to use QuickTime, despite it having two gaping holes in its security that allow full remote code execution if a malicious video is played. Adobe better move fast on this, and Apple customers might want to trust Cook & Co a little less to keep them safe.” Beware, Window folks.

PDN: What Photographers and Filmmakers Need to Know About Thunderbolt 3.

Thunderbolt 3 uses a Type C port just like USB Type C. That means, in practice, there’s no physical difference between a Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type C cable and port. And, like USB Type-C, Thunderbolt 3 has identical plugs on either end of the cable so there’s no longer a ‘right’ way to plug them in.” You mean there’s no longer a ‘wrong’ way to plug them in, hopefully ...

Mashable: The horrifying moment a man narrowly escapes a raging wildfire.

Why you don’t mess with Mother Nature. Imagine being in steep canyons, as we have here in NM, when the winds change (and are blowing at 50MPH). Another reason we go out of our way to drop food and sundries for firefighters. They do one hell of a dangerous job.

Youtube: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver - Border Wall.

The thing that depresses me most about modern political comedy, is that they have to be the ones who lay out the idiotic realities our news media persist in ignoring. Even the smallest bit of investigative journalism is too big an investment, it seems. We all know a wall is ridiculous, and an argument could be made that any sensible person would know this. But rallies and turnout prove that an explanation - in detail - is *not* ridiculous. Indeed, such explanation is sadly necessary. Where are the in-depth analysis - with modern infographics? The fancy Medium/Exposure style image pages with animations? Where are the stats of how many billion gallons of concrete that would be necessary?

Then again, perhaps noone wants to even hint that the whole project would likely be contracted to the Chinese.
