Amazing Charlotte Gainsbourg video - thanks @wylesy

Have you seen some of the discussion about how the director has stolen/copied/been inspired by other photos? For example, there are some examples on this comment.

I can’t decide if this makes the video a bad thing or not (although I’d love it if the original sources are credited somewhere). But knowing that all/many/some of the images are re-made versions of images found online certainly turns it into a different object.

Commenting is turned off on this blog.

  • 7:43pm: Finally deciding to give up on the maths course. Almost half way through, but it is in no way fun and there's so much else I could be doing.
  • 5:26pm: @carlospdiaz It's not when to breathe that's the problem, but how to do it without breaking my rhythm. Practice needed!
  • 5:13pm: Over the past three weeks I've got my front crawl stroke count per 25m down from 24ish to 18ish. Just need to work out how to breathe.
  • 10:33am: @blech Yeah, I can see that to some extent... but if many people have no clue what Chrome *is*, or what it replaces, do the ads help...?
  • 10:22am: I do wonder about those Google Chrome ads, given how many people don't know what a "browser" is:
