So, for your viewing pleasure, here come 10 more ways to visualize lyrics:

A girl with colitis goes by…

March 29, 2012 § 4 Comments

In the early days of the web, Am I Right was one of the funniest sites there was: a database of misheard lyrics. The misunderstanding of the psychedelic Beatles lyrics “A girl with kaleidoscope eyes” with the absurdist “A girl with colitis goes by” is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.

The Beatles mondegreen

And now there is a wonderful infograph by direct lyrics, to summarize the most common mistakes. Wasn’t it about time?

Adele mondegreen

By the way, Am I Right has also published a collection of misheard lyrics in Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza: And Other Misheard Lyrics.

See the full infograph after the jump.

Tarantino from below and Anderson from above

February 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

Filming from below and filming from above. Two different techniques, two different approaches, both contributing to the film’s essence.

Kogognada has created two short fascinating videos; the first one is a compilation of Quentin Tarantino’s shots filmed from below.

And the second one is compilation of Wes Anderson’s overhead shots of hands doing all sort of things.

Pretty cool. Don’t you think?
