Is Coub The next generation of moving images? Maybe [Marty Review]

Is Coub The next generation of moving images? Maybe [Marty Review] | Curation Revolution |

Get inspired and create your own coubs - animated GIFs with sound.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Cool new tool helps create small animations with sound. Going to try it and see how easy it is, but looks cool. Let's hope COUB indicates innovation in video since it is still a pain to create. 

COUB is a cool tool with a limited applicaiton. The tools current goal is to replace the animated GIF. It achieves that goal, but the lack of looping commands (limiting the loops or plays) reduce the tool's scope to only things that form a loop. 

I created a COUB out of a Jack Dorsey video, but it just becomes irratating the more it loops. I am not a big fan of automatic animation or animation without the ability to make it stop.

Until COUB adds what ever animated Gif has the ability to do, loop X times and then stop, I don't see a commercial application since it is sure to send visitors screaming away from your Ecom website. 

Cool and easy to use plaything but not commercial as it stands now.

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
