Apparently Picasso Was A Mystery

Or so the title of this documentary about the man and his work from 1956 would have you believe...

The bulls and the goat are my two favorites; they're both quite something.  And now I'm ready for a museum visit...

TV Trailers

I'm not sure I've ever seen a trailer for a TV show before, but this new one for Fox from JJ Abrams looks pretty good to me...

Two parts Asimov and a healthy dose of Dick and we've got a pretty interesting looking sci-fi robot buddy cop show.  Now if only it were the next show from Netflix...

Space Commander

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield continues to go above and beyond as the commander of the International Space Station...

Dude is seriously making it cool to be an astronaut again, and that's an important job.  If you're on twitter you should be following him, you can also check out more of his videos on you tube.

Searching For Spock

On a lighter note, this Audi piece is the most entertaining ad I've seen in years.  Can't call it the best one though, in that it doesn't make me want to buy an Audi...

For Your Eyes Only

Or you know, those under 4'10".

In all seriousness though, I think this outreach campaign against child abuse in Spain is pretty brilliant.  It's probably more gimmicky than actually applicable in terms of reaching abused children directly, but even if it works just once or twice it would be worth it.  It's also sweeping the internets and generating lots of buzz and that's the kind of recognition that all too common tragedies like child abuse need if we're ever going to be able to do away with them.

(via a lot of places, but I finally watched it on Gizmodo)
