 John Lennon Doodle Animation Tribute Celebrating 70th birthday Oct 09 2010

If John Lennon hadn’t been gunned down in New York in 1980, he would have celebrated his 70th birthday Oct 09, 2010.  Fans around the world marked the date with explosion of sentiment.

Nearly 30 years after Lennon was shot and killed by Mark David Chapman outside The Dakota, the apartment building where he lived, admirers of all ages gathered right across the street today in a part of Central Park called “Strawberry Fields,” honoring his memory by singing his songs.

Lennon’s life and work are still drawing plenty of fresh interest and new fans.   So many of his songs are part of sing-a-longs in nursery schools and lullabies and the music that you grow up with when you live on this planet.

It’s proof that even decades after his death, John Lennon still matters.

Google honored the musician on its home page with an  “Imagine.”

An Animated Salute to Rube Goldberg July 4 2010

[trafficplayer_youtube_video width=”450″ height=”250″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/o2sNCS_5YJQ?modestbranding=1&autohide=0&autoplay=1&controls=1&hd=0&rel=0″ ][/trafficplayer_youtube_video]

Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) was a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, sculptor and author. born in San Francisco on July 4, 1883.

A founding member of the National Cartoonist Society, a political cartoonist and a Pulitzer Prize winner, Rube was a beloved national figure as well as an often-quoted radio and television personality during his sixty year professional career.

 Best known for his “inventions”, Rube’s early years as an engineer informed his most acclaimed work.  A Rube Goldberg contraption – an elaborate set of arms, wheels, gears, handles, cups and rods, put in motion by balls, canary cages, pails, boots, bathtubs, paddles and live animals – takes a simple task and makes it extraordinarily complicated.
Rube did not build the machines he drew, but his cartoons have become an inspiration to aspiring engineers and scientists across the world.  At a time when the U.S. is looking to inspire young minds, Rube Goldberg’s legacy represents the best in American innovation, humor and unconventional thinking; an inspiring model for us all.
