random 46

garage band hopefuls
U2 - Street Mission - 1978
Before they became the Greatest Band in the World, Bono, Larry, Adam, and The Edge This video is from two years after the band formed (and two years before they released Boy). Bono's vocals are a bit lacking but Edge's genius already shines through.

bible manuscripts discovered
For a long time, Albania has closed its doors to western scholars. Last summer, a four-person team from the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts went to Tirana to photograph 13 manuscripts in the National Archive. They were unprepared for what would happen on their first day on the job. They saw an old typewritten, in-house catalog of manuscripts, and noticed that there were forty-seven (47) NT MSS! The Dallas Morning News reported on this to some degree, featuring a full-page article on the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts.

Christianity Today is planning an article on the discovery... I'll post the link when the article is posted.

title sequences
beyond magazine writes:
I love title sequences. Sometimes more than the movies themselves.

Someone has re-imagined the Star Wars opening in the style of Saul Bass. And of course, if you check that one out you have to take a look at Bass' Anatomy of a Murder and It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, a family favorite that we used to stay up to watch every New Year's Eve. Yes, I lived in the age before VHS. And fire. And the wheel.

There's much more at Forget the Film, Watch the Titles

This looks interesting and promising. I imagine it will be a little while before we see this, but ink jet printable solar cells is a great idea.
