Le uniformi della Flotta Stellare spiegate

Multimedia   30.10.16  

Gradi, distintivi e colori delle uniformi della Flotta Stellare nei film e nelle serie tv di Star Trek descritti da Atlas Obscura.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, and from the first episode in 1966, the Starfleet uniforms worn by the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise (and eventually elsewhere) have remained one of the most enduring and iconic aspects of the franchise. Aside from being deliberately utilitarian and futuristic, from the beginning, the uniforms have also been used to communicate a character’s rank and station, although depending on what period in the future you are trying to emulate, the language changes.


33 graphic novel che dovete leggere

Multimedia   22.10.16  

Thrillist ha stilato una classifica di 33 graphic novel multigenere da leggere almeno una volta nella vita.

Ranking the best book-length comics ever created is a lot like picking out the greatest grains of sand on the beach: you’re bound to overlook some gems. But that's the glory of graphic novels as a form, isn't it? From North America to Europe to Japan, from superheroes to autobiography to pure poetry, from horror to comedy to drama, this medium is as varied and vital as anything else on Earth. And since it's largely free from the commercial demands of billion-dollar mega-industries like film, TV, music, or video games, comics offer a creative freedom that's all but unparalleled. It's easy to fill your bookshelf with mind-expanding, paradigm-shifting work and still barely scratch the surface of what's out there.

Below you'll find our attempt to delineate the tip of the art form's iceberg -- 33 of the most exciting, adventurous, gorgeous, movingly written anthologies, limited series, and stand-alone stories ever drawn. Get ready for work that will challenge and enrich you for years to come.

Per gli appassionati del genere qui si segnalavano anche le 50+50 graphic novel imperdibili.


Le origini del noir

Guerre Stellari in 4K

Multimedia   19.10.16  

Un gruppo di impallinati di Star Wars sta provando a restaurare in 4K Guerre Stellari Episodio IV: Una Nuova Speranza, il primo capitolo della Trilogia Originale, in tempo per il 40° anniversario della sua uscita cinematografica.

Simply put, we are restoring the original, theatrical version of Star Wars in 4K. Using multiple 35mm prints, scanned at 4K, cleaned at 4K, and rendered at full 4K UHD 4096x1716 resolution. To be clear, this is not simply an upscale of any other source, this is all to be done natively in 4K from 35mm sources. The only exception to this rule is when we don’t have a particular frame available, in that case either an upscale of the Silver Screen Edition, or the official Bluray will be used.


Il rock di Duluth

Multimedia   13.10.16  

In occasione del Premio Nobel per la letteratura assegnato a Bob Dylan per aver creato nuove espressioni poetiche nella grande tradizione della canzone americana, il Guardian ha raccolto 24 tra i testi più significativi scritti dal cantautore di Duluth.

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
