Creating a Memory, Quickly

This is a very cool video.

Boston's TD Garden, a sports and concert venue - and home to the Celtics and the Bruins - is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

The bosses of the Garden commissioned artist Adam O'Day to create a "distinctive mural" to commemorate the event.

While he created, a camera whirred away, capturing the moments in time-lapse glory.

The results: distinctive.

TD Garden Mural

To commemorate the 20th Birthday Celebration of TD Garden, TD Garden commissioned local artist Adam O’Day to create a distinctive mural to share with their fans. Check out this timelapse of his mural creation – we love it! Ticketed fans attending our Banner Moments 20th Birthday Celebration on Wed. will receive a limited print edition of the mural. Fans visiting the TD Garden for any event should check it out, located outside Loge 5/6 on level 4. O’Day is a Boston-based artist with a BFA in illustration and design from Lesley University College of Art and Design. His painting, ‘Transit’ was recently chosen by Mayor Marty Walsh, as the winner of the city’s ‘Portrait of a City’ competition and is given as gifts to visiting diplomats and distinguished guests of the City.

Wait! I Shouldn't Cut-and-Paste That Warning?

If you've been on Facebook in the past couple of days, you've seen dozens, hundreds, maybe even more of your friends make a public post.

They proclaim that what's on their Facebook page belongs to them, and no one - not even the mighty Facebook itself - can violate their privacy.

There's another one out there that says Facebook will start charging you $5.99 a month to keep your private things private.

That one says the poster heard it on Channel 13 (or Channell 11), so it's got to be true!

It ain't real, folks. It's all a hoax. Just like Facebook said:
"While there may be water on Mars, don't believe everything you read on the internet today. Facebook is free and it always will be. And the thing about copying and pasting a legal notice is just a hoax. Stay safe out there Earthlings!"

Or maybe that's the hoax... Hmmm...

Why Poke the Bear?

This video went viral earlier this week. At this writing, close to 4 million hits on Facebook.

It's taken by a guy who was flying a camera drone in front of a State Police facility in New York.

A trooper was trying to get him to say who he was and why he was filming the building and grounds.

The man refused to provide that info, and while he was right in his refusal, he's being a bit of a jerk about it.

It took a sergeant to tell the trooper that what the guy was doing was okay, and then the guy tried to "school" the sergeant too.

I'm all for civil liberties, but this one really comes across as a deliberat taunting.

What do you think?
Man Schools New York State Trooper!

Damn, his sergeant shut him down just like THAT!

For the Botanical Geeks Among Us

I know this looks like something out of Little Shop of Horrors, but this is pretty cool.

Alice is a titan arum - corpse flower - at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

It's a rare flower, very large, and very smelly when it blooms. It gets its name because its scent reminds people of decaying flesh.

The cool thing is that this one bloomed when its greenhouse mate, Spike, failed to do so a month or so ago, when it was surrounded by a lot of media hype.

Check out the thermal images of Alice - the day before she bloomed, and the day after.

What a difference a day makes! Look at the thermal imaging picture to see how Alice powered up. #CBGAlice http://www.chicagobotanic.org/titan

Such a Love Story

Ana Maria and Domingo Chavez were married 55 years, and this week, they died within hours of each other.

The pair met on a dance floor in Texas, raising eight children together and settling in Idaho.

In 2006, both were diagnosed with dementia, and had to move in with one of their sons.

Within the last week, their health deteriorated quickly.

The family pushed their beds together, and clasped their hands on top of a heart-shaped pillow.

Ana Maria passed first, with Domingo following a few hours later.

An amazing story, really...

Do They Even Make Traditional Oreos Anymore?

The folks at Nabisco have rolled out their latest Oreo creation: Cinnamon Bun Oreos

This on the heels of a variety of new concoctions, like Banana Split Oreo, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreo, Candy Corn Oreo and more.

Whatever happened to the traditional chocolate wafers crushing the creamy inside?

Has Nabisco forced us all to Hydroxland?

Up & Downs, Highs & Lows, & Maybe a Bit of Screaming

Austin wants to marry Allison.

What better place to propose than on a rollercoaster?

That's exactly what he said. And exactly what he did.

While riding the Voyage rollercoaster at Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana - yes, that appears to be the name of the town - and while a friend filmed from the seat in front of them, Austin started talking to Allison, and just before the first peak, asked her to be his "rollercoaster buddy."

The look on her face before she figured out what was going on is precious.

But check out the entire video - it's a pretty cool proposal.

"Something's Eating the Moon!"

Sunday night's SuperMoon / Lunar Eclipse may have been the most watched celestial event ever.

If only there were a ratings system for celestial events, we'd be able to tell for sure.

Everyone and her brother became amateur astronomers this weekend, posting pictures and videos of the event all over social media.

"Something's eating the moon!" is the best post I saw about it.

In case you missed it, here's one of the best videos I've seen of it.

It combines a variety of images - stills and video - and adds in a kick-butt soundtrack.

Very nice indeed.

Gag of Ultron

Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out on BluRay on Friday.

In advance of its release, Marvel blasted this gag reel all over social media.

The things you see in a gag reel are often the best parts of the movie. Thor and Tony Stark dancing. Thor and Vision kissing. Thor failing to catch his hammer.

Seems like Thor's featured a lot, now that I think of it.

Is That a Glowing Turtle?

National Geographic released an amazing video yesterday of a biofluorescent sea turtle.

What's amazing - besides the colors - is that this is the first time anyone has captured a biofluorescent reptile.

Biofluoresence, according to National Geographic, is "the ability to reflect the blue light hitting a surface and re-emit it as a different color."

This turtle is a multitude of colors - also very unusual.

Watch the video and learn.
