SLN! Weekend Update: An OpenCulture Sampler

I’m a big fan of OpenCulture.com, the site that collects high-quality media from across the web and makes it available to everyone for FREE. OpenCulture is a one-stop source for e-books, audio books, movies, online college courses, language lessons, lectures, and art. If you haven’t visited there before, you’re in for a big treat.

Here’s a sampler of my favorite content. Just click the links!

1. Visit London Now and Then
Watch present day footage superimposed onto identical street scenes that were filmed back in 1924. Spooky! http://www.openculture.com/2014/05/london-mashed-up.html

2. Long Distance Relationships Animated
View a cautionary tale of geography’s triumph over romance told in stop motion animation. Tragic! http://www.openculture.com/2014/04/watch-bottle-an-award-winning-stop-motion-animated-tale-of-transoceanic-correspondence.html

3. Inside the Wright Stuff
Study animated schematic of a great architectural wonder: Fallingwater. Superlative! http://www.openculture.com/2010/02/frank_lloyd_wrights_fallingwater_animated.html

4. Play Under Pressure
Listen to the isolated vocal track from the classic David Bowie/Queen collaboration. Cool! http://www.openculture.com/2013/06/listen_to_freddie_mercury_and_david_bowie.html

5. Financial Humor
Watch Neil Degrasse-Tyson compare his wealth to that of Bill Gates. Funny! http://www.openculture.com/2014/05/neil-degrasse-tyson-puts-bill-gates-wealth-into-funny-perspective.html

6. A Norwegian Would
See time-lapse photography of the aurora borealis in HD—and then crawl off to sleep in the bath. Wondrous! http://www.openculture.com/2010/12/aurora_borealis_over_norway_in_hd.html

7.  For the Record
Enjoy this 1956 film that walks you step-by-step through the manufacture of a vinyl record. Historic! http://www.openculture.com/2014/02/how-vinyl-records-are-made.html

    Wow. Movies, audio books, lectures from top thinkers, textbooks AND 1,000 free courses?! What a great new frugal, educational and entertaining resource.

    Plus, I just checked, the video links work in Canada too! (Unfortunately, the opposite is often true.)

    Thank you for sharing both the site’s existence, and your favs, as we kick off the weekend.

      Thanks F2P—and I’m pleased to hear the video works in Canada.
