A Post-Apocalyptic Tour of the Abandoned Six Flags In New Orleans

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4DmNf251CA&feature=player_embedded

Teddy Smith takes us on creepy, post-apocalyptic tour of the abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The video was shot in October 2010 and the park is scheduled to be demolished in January 2011. This reminds me of one of the levels in Left 4 Dead 2.

What really drew me into this video was the fantastic camera work. Every shot was moving, and really pulled you in. Going to be using this in my animation classes.

Maybe the greatest song of all time?


Ted Leo And The Pharmacists cover Tears For Fears

I have been listening to a lot of new wave/pop stuff from the eighties lately and Everybody Wants to Rule the World just really resonates with me. This is a live version that Ted Leo and the Pharmacists recorded a little while ago.

Great cover.
