Earlier this morning we learned that legendary Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy had passed away. I was such a huge fan of the man and his work, and it was an incredibly huge shock to learn of his passing.

Upon hearing the news, I almost immediately looked up the scene in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan where Spock dies. It was just an instinct I had, and this time the scene hit me with so much more power, emotion and meaning than it ever has before. The damn thing made me cry, so to get me back in a happy mood I looked up a couple of funny videos featuring Nimoy to watch that made me laugh. I included all those videos below in case you wanted to ride the same emotional roller coaster I put myself through. 

Then there's his final tweet that he posted on February 22nd, and it's really quite beautiful.

I'm deeply saddened that Nimoy is no longer with us, but his spirit will live on in the memories of his fans, and in all of the wonderful work that he accomplished in his lifetime. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Victor Jardel has created quite an entertaining animated/live-action hybrid music video for your viewing enjoyment. It’s called Rain, and it’s set in Paris. Rain is coming, and “small black creatures are leaving the wood for the hood!” Not only is the video great, but I completely dig the music! The music comes from Senbeï, and it’s a very catchy tune. It’s just an upbeat video that made me happy. I hope you enjoy this!

<![CDATA[Zombie and Med Student Shack Up in Animated Short - ROOMMATE WANTED - DEAD OR ALIVE]]>

"Roommate Wanted - Dead or Alive" is a spectacularly silly claymation short film that follows a struggling medical student who “gets way more than he bargained for when his new roommate moves in,” which happens to be a zombie.  The film is a graduation project that comes from Lærke Kromann and David Crisp of The Animation Workshop

The story is filled with a lot of great comedy that involves the living character trying to deal with his zombie roommate as he continues to grossly decay and fall apart. The short film is guaranteed to deliver you some fun entertainment.

Earlier this month, we asked a question: Why did WNYC delete an episode of its internet-focused podcast TLDR that criticized Vivek Wadhwa, a professor frequently quoted as an expert on the issue of women in technology? The updated episode is now available online, complete with a painfully tense interview between host Meredith Haggerty and Wadhwa.

The brilliant artist Tim Hunkin has opened a coin-op amusement arcade in London called Novelty Amusments. Here's a video of his money laundering game. The object is to steal money when regulators aren't looking.

Dissolve has a fun video series in which they recreate movies using only stock footage from their service. It's self-promotion, sure, but it's done in a cool, quick way that doesn't make it feel like an advertisement. Instead, it serves as almost a trivia game of sorts; they provide fake titles for movies and the year they were released, and then it's on you to make the connection of which movie they're trying to recreate. Since the Oscars are coming up this weekend, they take aim at award-winning films throughout the years in this video.

Can you name all of the movies referenced?

<![CDATA[Two Lovers Fight for Their Lives in Fantasy Animated Short - CLOUDRISE]]>

Cloudrise is a breathtakingly touching and inspirational animated short film that was created by Denver Jackson. The film has a fantasy steampunk type of vibe to it, and the story follows two characters named Miko and Tenku as they are faced with the greatest challenge of their lives by fighting to stay together as their burning airship plummets out of the sky after it's attacked.

The project was created over the course of four months, and the creator had no illustration or animation training. His main focus and drive for the project was to tell a great story, and he certainly succeeded. 

Set in a fantasy world above the clouds, Cloudrise follows a pivotal moment in the lives of two lovers as they face a great challenge. Watch as Miko and Tenku fight to survive an attack on their new airship and take the necessary measures to help each other. Hold on to your seat as you witness how far someone is willing to go to rescue the one they love. This is an action-packed short film that ties together various fantasy/science fiction influences.

I really loved this short, and I hope you do too,

Despite what your eyes are telling you, these pictures are actually remarkable oil and acrylic paintings by Patrick Kramer.

Each scene can take the Utah-based artist up to six weeks from concept to completion. His hyper realistic artworks combine feature everyday objects, his local library, swimming pools and even pet goldfish.

But above all, Kramer revels in being able to paint portraits of his close friend and family members. With his impressive talents and technical skill such as this, you’d never need a photo album ever again.

With such a high level of technical proficiency, his jaw-dropping hyper-realistic portraits negate the need for using a family photo album ever again.
