Another broken .mov file -- thanks, Apple -- that ended up being converted to a GIF. My animation based on screenshots of art by John Parker, from his website; more discussion on my 2001-2007 blog.

Grey Grid (Aron Namenwirth) - GIF version

Tom_Moody_Grey_Grid_Aron_Namenwirth

From a quick skim around the WWW, it appears Apple is to blame for old .mov files not working. Apparently they stopped updating Quicktime and forgot to tell anyone and it became a malware haven. Thanks, Apple, you dudes are truly... the genius bar.

Anyway, this means .mov files that I convert to .mp4 don't automatically loop unless I save the .mp4 with a javascript controller. (The old Quicktime had the option to make .mov files loop.) Too much hassle, so for files such as the above, I converted the .mov to .GIF and specified "looping." This destroys one of the subtle charms of the piece, which was that the Quicktime player struggled with a short (.4 seconds) loop and you got erratic repeat times in the above, causing the vertical blue-grey bands to drift from side to side. The browser plays the GIF fairly uniformly. Anyway, too much info. The post explaining the project above is on my 2001-2007 blog.

Apologies for the blinking, usually try to avoid it, but when hate is pure desperate measures must be taken.
I suppose if you use the browser address bar for search you never have to see the main Google search page with its aggressively insipid daily theme drawing. Trust me, it's bad and needs to be destroyed, improved, or in the above case, both.

supreme beef

apologies to Malevich and Nicolas Pioch

Pioch's name appears in the metadata for the shaky meat GIF -- the GIF is dated 1995.
Kazimir Malevich's Painterly Realism of a Peasant Woman in Two Dimensions is dated 1915.
