Around the World in 42 Days
My childhood was wrapped around the TV mini-series "Around the World in 80 Days" starring none other than Pierce Brosnan. We watched the VHS so much that the tape wore out and broke and we had to tape it back to the spool.
Strange Maps found a modern version of the story by Jules Verne that shows the improvements in travel. It is now possible to travel around the world (without air travel) in just 42 days.

Sigur Ros at the MoMA
I wish I was cool enough to have been here!
Shot live at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on Icelandic Independence Day, Sigur Rós @ MoMA is a unique concert film highlighting new material from the band's latest album, "með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust", as well as classic Sigur Rós songs. Directed by Alex Simmons.
