Slow television comes to Australia’s outback

TwitterFacebook

It makes sense that Australia, with its expanses of desert and ever-changing landscapes, would make a great place for slow television.

The Ghan: Australia’s Greatest Train Journey is the country’s first foray into the genre, which is set to air on SBS and online on Jan. 7.

For those unfamiliar, slow television aims to capture events that run over a long period of time, minus any editing. Norway’s Bergensbanen – minutt for minutt which captured a seven-hour journey in the country’s south, popularised the genre.

The Ghan is a train that operates between Darwin on Australia’s north coast, all the way down to Adelaide on the southern coast.  Read more…

Ivanka Trump rebels against her dad and tweets ‘Happy Holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’

TwitterFacebook

The war on Christmas just got real awkward at the Trump residence.

President Donald Trump has taken a hard stance against the term “Happy Holidays” in favor of the less-inclusive “Merry Christmas” in recent years. His war on Christmas has even sparked an opinion piece from his favorite news outlet, Fox News, titled “Thank you, Mr. Trump for bringing ‘Merry Christmas’ back to the White House.”

Dudes strap a rocket to a Lego ‘Star Wars’ Super Star Destroyer and blast it into a wall

TwitterFacebook

The only thing better than building a gigantic Lego structure is watching it get unnecessarily blasted to bits.

After building a Lego Star Wars Super Star Destroyer consisting of 3,152 pieces, YouTuber David Windestal decided to do a quick breakdown, with a little help from a powerful rocket. 

Using a custom mount, Windestal was able to strap the 8-pound spaceship to a sled and rocket, which accelerated the craft to a speed of 62 mph in just a few short seconds. While we would have loved to see the thing fly through the sky, crashing it was pretty great too.  Read more…

How to check if someone’s secretly using your Netflix account

TwitterFacebook

Your Netflix is a personal space. What you watch, when you watch it, and how often you watch it can reveal a lot about you. The last thing you want is someone poking around your account, checking your viewing habits, and drafting off your hard-earned $10.99-a-month for free access. 

And yet people steal Netflix all the time. Whether it’s a jilted lover, an old college roommate, or an estranged family member — there are all too many people out there who may be able to use your account and see what you’ve been streaming. Sure, the easiest solution is to change your password, but that won’t tell you if someone’s been creeping.  Read more…

One Direction fans force radio host off Twitter over joke about facial hair

TwitterFacebook

One Direction fans are staunchly protective of their beloved band members, something an Australian radio host is learning the hard way.

Hit Network host Ash London called Tomlinson’s beard “ratty” on air, joking with fellow co-host Ed Kavalee and guest Ash Williams on her show Ash London Live. “He’s not Harry Styles,” said Kavalee, who also called him the “least popular one.” Williams called him “the guy with the smaller face with the short brown hair.” Read more…

Watch the fascinating birth of a new island in Tonga

TwitterFacebook

In December 2014, an underwater volcano erupted in the South Pacific kingdom of Tonga, leading to the creation of a new island called Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai — and the whole thing’s been caught on camera.

The new island was only predicted to last only few months, as it eroded quickly after its formation. That erosion began to subside six months in, and now NASA thinks the island will have a 6- to 30-year lifespan.

The creation of the island is also a source of curiosity for scientists working on Mars exploration, as detailed in this video by NASA. It’s fascinating stuff. Read more…
