Just some hints, so you know: it’s set in a some sort of advanced world, inhabited by millions of potato-like nose-less creatures stacked like salmon cans, and the world keeps expanding. Things seem to be fine, with daily, mundane activities going over and over, until one day, a bluish ‘meteor’ strikes their world, and things start going wrong. A ‘potato-like creature’, case zero, holding that bluish stuff which turns out to be slime-like, starts to disintegrate, and the germs it carry begin spreading beyond control to its entire populace. As more and more these blue slimes invade their world, a prospect of apocalypse becomes seemingly inevitable, and everything reaches its critical, boiling point in leaps and bounds.
But I won’t tell you what it actually is all about until you watch the end of this video (which is set in Channel 4).
Either Roland Emmerich or Michael Bay should learn more from this video, I suppose.
You assume that tag you always expect from Instagram users? Not necessarily true on the beginning, but let’s just see how San Francisco-based The Bold Italic – the mastermind behind this supposedly un-NSFW idea – creates two possible kinds of porn here: literal porn involving fruits, vegetables, and sauces, and the other one, that Instagram one where you can upgrade it, if you like, into ‘foodgasm’.
Watch it, and think again.
As the days towards Coldplay’s release of ‘Ghost Stories’ album are getting closer than ever, there is more for them to reveal their songs, bit by bit, in particular with ‘Magic’. A month or so before, we had tuned in to their song, but this time, as of April 7, the band’s official Youtube channel had already released the video.
Adopting styles completely different from those they used in another latest song, ‘Midnight’, which places heavy emphasis on psychedelic motions and trances, this video was shot in a black-and-white, silent-film format, reminiscent of that you saw in films from early 1920s. Lastly, add another striking feature that you never expect before (other than Rihanna or Jay-Z): Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, this time, took part in the filming process. The story, which I had better not reveal here (as you can look at the video yourself), looks compelling. Enjoy.
Before you watch the time-lapse videos below, let me ask you one question: do you thoroughly realize the ultimate hustle and bustle that never ceases preoccupying this city? Either you see it from its light-coruscated skyline, its seemingly endless flow of passers-by, vehicles, buses, and trucks going back and forth, or the slam-bang noises you hear in almost any restaurant, or even simply moving boats, ships, and passenger jets, this is undeniably true of the real spirit of Hong Kong.
Whatever people have said that situation in Hong Kong is generally deteriorating after its handover to China in 1997, or whatever they quoth that the British administration did much better, the Hong Kong spirit is still maintained to this date. But, in the long run, though, nobody can lucidly predict the long-term future afterwards.
Whatever the discomfiture, soothe down your mind awhile and watch the videos below!

It’s short but scintillating, homely yet touching, and it does have one important message: there is someone out there who is always ready to accept whoever we are.
