Wonderous Worldly Web

Posted on 03 Oct 2005 by Zopa

Like a Las Vegas buffet, the WWW is a truly endless procession of the odd, the tasty and the downright bizarre.

Here are a few things we’ve found floating around on the net in the last few days.

So, Robert Ryang, a film editor’s assistant in Manhattan, enters a competition to recut a movie’s trailer into a different genre - he takes on The Shining, and the result is awesome (and won the competition, and got him noticed by a top Hollywood studio - nice work.)

Take a student, a homepage, and a need to not get into debt (See, there is a Zopa connection!) - put them together and you get the Million Dollar homepage! Talk about an idea…he’s over quarter of the way there - so why not buy some pixels and help him out?

Finally, ever wanted to send an email into the future? No? Well anyway, FutureMe.org lets you do exactly that. Imagine sending yourself a reminder of someone’s birthday (or your own for that matter), or more intrigingly, sending yourself an email to be delivered in 1 year, 5 years or 10 years time….what would you write, who will be the you that receives it?

Anyway - enough mind bending - back to work! If you’ve got any interesting web sites you’d like to share - let us know in the comments…keep ‘em decent though!
