Yesterday on a Reddit “Ask Me Anything”, Harrison Ford answered the most controversial Star Wars question as if he had never stopped playing the role of Han Solo.

We weren’t allowed to use Star Wars merchandise during the first series because The Phantom Menace was about to come out and they clamped down. When they saw how Star Wars-loving the first series was, they actually came to us and said we could have anything we want. By which time we were like, “We don’t fucking want it.” - Simon Pegg

Scanning modern living, part 2 (GIF!)

In the recent post, “Scanning modern living," we detailed our process for creating digital surrogates via scanning. The EPSON Expression 10000XL scanners that we use came with a variety of accessories to make the digitization of visual material easier. The top image shows a sleeve of photographic 35mm slides of color landscape photographs taken by photographer Alan Ward, with some of the slides moved to the slide-holder accessory for scanning. This accessory makes it possible to easily scan 15 slides at a time - essential when there are hundreds in the collection!

And to give you a glimpse at some of Alan Ward’s 35mm slides, we have created our first GIF! Inspired by the University of Iowa Special Collection Tumblr, we hope to experiment a bit more with this medium in future posts.

Welcome to the wonderful, exciting, strange world of GIF making!

If you haven’t seen the video for “The Sign" in eighteen years or so, I highly recommend you keep your eyes peeled for this magnificent glimpse of glory about 55 seconds in.

I am mesmerized by this gif.

I get the feeling the Victorians would have been fans of “frickle-frackle”

I can’t decide if
someone stabbed someone else over a cheeseburger
someone stabbed someone else with a cheeseburger
someone stabbed a cheeseburger
a cheeseburger stabbed someone
a cheeseburger stabbed another cheeseburger

Any one of these would be acceptable.
