Saturday Matinee: The Desert Rats (1953)

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 26, 2008

Rommel has the British in retreat on his way to the Suez Canal. All that stands in his way is Tobruk, held by a vastly out numbered force of Australian troops. Richard Burton leads these troops on daring raids against Rommel, keeping him off balance as they earn the nickname ‘The Desert Rats’.

These types of services works very well for me, because I live out of range of over-the-air television signals and have no interest in purchasing a satellite receiver. Thank God that I have had Verizon DSL since March.

Time Lapse: The Southern Lights

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 14, 2008

Time-lapse footage of the Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights.
This is the Southern Hemisphere equivalent of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
Filmed during the Antarctic winter in the general vicinity of McMurdo Station and Scott Base, where the sun is below the horizon for 4 months of the year.
Most of the individual clips here were each taken over about a 10 minute period to give you an idea of how much they were moving in real time.

I have some local time lapse footage to put up, and while I was researching methods of converting my material into a video, I ran across this. One day, I’d like to see aurora in the sky first hand. That would be cool.
