The Making of ‘Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War’ – Weta Workshop [Video]

September 19th, 2017 No comments

I have posted many photos of this exhibit from our recent trip to New Zealand and we found this “making of” video from when the exhibit originally opened in 2015. It gives some great insight into the creation of both the story and the exhibit itself and provides some sense of scale for the sculptures I have posted here.

The Making of 'Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War'

To mark the World War I centenary, Te Papa has joined forces with Weta Workshop to take you back to Gallipoli. Experience the triumphs and countless tragedies of this 8-month campaign through the eyes and words of the ordinary New Zealanders who were there.

Stansborough LTD Woolen Mill – Loom Working in Slow Motion [Video] (0:28)

Stansborough LTD Woolen Mill - Loom Working in Slow Motion

On our recent (August 2017) trip to New Zealand, we made a special point of visiting Stansborough LTD, maker of fine woolen fabrics used in the costumes for The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

This is slow motion video of one of their turn-of-the-century looms at work. What you can’t hear and feel is the vibration of the floor and the slamming of the shuttles from one side of the machine to the other. This is truly a beast of another age.

If you are in Wellington, New Zealand, I highly recommend you visit and take their tour. It is like stepping back into an earlier age.

Binging with Babish: Master of None Carbonara via YouTube

July 6th, 2017 Comments off
These short food videos have become part of my regular YouTube viewing. Babish tries to emulate foods from various TV shows and — when the show’s food is totally inedible — creaates a recipe you might actually want to make at home. Yum! — Douglas
 
 
Dev Shah is a man who cares a great deal about food – so much so that he spends the better part of his afternoons scouring the internet for the very best taco truck. With season 2 delving even further into a culinary storyline, it only seemed appropriate to welcome back Master of None with Dev’s victory over pasta carbonara.

Science: When to Add Salt During Cooking—and Why (It Makes a Huge Difference) via YouTube

June 24th, 2017 Comments off
This is something I learned through experience, but it is always great to have some research and science to back it up! — Douglas
 
 
 
What’s the role of salt in cooking? Is it important to add it at certain times? Most recipes (and culinary schools) advise seasoning food with salt early in the cooking process, not just at the end. We decided to investigate this conventional wisdom to see if the timing of seasoning makes a notable difference.
