He fought the Nazis and went on one of the world's greatest journeys. Rest in Peace, Knut Haugland, you lived an amazing life.



Last Kon-Tiki raft crewman Knut Haugland dies
Mr Haugland died of natural causes in Oslo

Knut Haugland - the last of the six Norwegian crewmen who crossed the Pacific Ocean on the Kon-Tiki balsa wood raft in 1947 - has died aged 92.
The explorer died of natural causes in Oslo's hospital, the Kon-Tiki museum director said.
The expedition was launched from Peru by anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl to demonstrate that South Americans could have settled Polynesia.
The Kon-Tiki sailed with basic equipment some 8,000 km (4,900 miles).
During World War II, Mr Haugland was member of the Norwegian resistance movement.
He was honoured by Britain for his role in helping to disrupt Nazi plans to create nuclear weapons via BBC News

This was always my favorite episode of hers on "King of the Hill". She made this sweet funny character come to life.

The Insect's Christmas, 1913 Stop Motion Animation


The good folks of XmasFlix, a wonderful blog of vintage Christmas films, have restored this beautiful animated masterpiece.

"This fascinating stop motion animated film was produced by the Khanzhonkov Company, Moscow Russia in 1913 .
Due to the quality of film I had to work with, it is fully intact, however, the textual elements were removed... A silent film, but I replaced the cutaway titles with overlay. I kept the same dialogue as it's original lower quality version. I enhanced the image and it became a wonderful dreamlike state. Since there was no audio, I created a layered audio effect with elements from the Edward Scissorhands soundtrack.
"

Watch this and many other oldies and goodies on their YouTube Channel too.
