2. Golden Globe .gifs
Even better than watching our Hollywood stars on camera is to catch their real reactions when a few (hundred) photos are stitched together. Bless the cocktails at the Golden Globes. Check out the collection here.

3. Linotype: The Film
Coming this February, Linotype: The Film is a feature-length (drool-worthy) documentary that tells the story of the machine that revolutionized printing.  Stay tuned to the film's website for upcoming screenings.
