This terrific live video of the song This Too Shall Pass was produced by the California band “OK GO” to launch their new album. The band, together with a group of young engineers from NASA  and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory spent four months and half a million dollars preparing for a marathon 48 hour shoot involving almost 100 “takes” to film the video with no CGI. If you like clever mechanical things you will love this film! You can read about the making of the movie by clicking on the logo:

Prototype MX5?

This wonderful sketch by the Edwardian illustrator Lance Thackeray, drawn in 1905, really captures the excitement of open topped motoring.

I apologise sincerely to my favourite artist for the slight amendments to his pictures!
