As we move ever closer to all-digital film production, the film reel is becoming a rarer sight in modern movie theaters. In an attempt to evoke the nostalgia associated with traditional film, Austrian photographer Reiner Riedler accessed the archives of major film museum Deutsche Kinemathek in Berlin, selecting a mix of popular and cult films — which include The Godfather, Ghosts, Scarface and Citizen Kane — for his new project, titled The Unseen Seen. Riedler then photographed the reels by installing film lights behind them, generating a unique and vivid set of photos that he hopes will recall images from a viewer’s memory and help associate the colors with the overall tone of the film, generating new emotions from movies of old.

Samsung gave Galaxy S III buyers a small rainbow of color choices in the summer, and there’s signs that the Galaxy Note II might receive a similarly resplendent treatment. A supposed press image acquired by AndroidSlash reveals the giant smartphone draped in a formerly not available black that’s potentially really striking– and more than a little bit of reminiscent of 2001‘s species-changing monoliths. There’s no main word from Samsung on its authenticity, although we wouldn’t be amazed knowing the business’s history and the Note II’s durable performance history. When a theoretically specific niche gadget is selling like gangbusters, some added diversity might be in order. Simply don’t anticipate any type of Starchildren as an outcome.
Update: Alas, this is without a doubt a phony. The source has actually updated to confirm that this was simply a fast darkening job with an image editor– you can tell by the darkened LED flash, camera and logo design. But still, we wouldn’t be shocked if Samsung does release its phablet in other colors to keep milking it.
In an intimate and illuminating piece for Eurogamer, Christian Donlan describes the remarkably nostalgic experience of playing L.A. Noire with his dad, who grew up in Los Angeles during the 1940s. For Donlan’s daddy, the game was less about criminal activity and action than it was about revisiting the Los Angeles of his youth. As it turns out, L.A. Noire is remarkably trustworthy to the era where the senior Donlan matured, standing as a testament to Rockstar’s diligence. “Even the little details commonly open up the past in fascinating methods, keying you into the class problems and the general hierarchy of the period,” Donland writes. “History is the big things, like the Richfield Tower, however it’s the small things, as well, like the trimmings on your …
If you haven’t already seen it, this is a VERY WORTWHILE video of an autotuned Mr. Rogers doing his thing. If you grew up watching Mr. Rogers, you’ll appreciate how awesome it is. If you didn’t grow up watching Mr. Rogers, you’re probably some lawless f*ck-up.
Hit the jump for the worthwhile video.

Silent Hill HD Collection has been pushed back two weeks from its March 6th launch date, Konami revealed in a press release earlier today. The compilation, which contains remastered versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3, will now land on store shelves March 20th — a long way off from its initial September / October 2011 launch window.
For those of you keeping track, that means the latter part of March will bring us three straight weeks of new Silent Hill releases, with Silent Hill: Downpour scheduled for March 14th, and Silent Hill: Book of Memories due out March 27th. Regardless of how much you may be looking forward to this absolute nightmare sandwich, we think we can all agree that, man, we’re looking forward to a decapitation-free April.

Who said all the 3D perks had to be reserved for Hollywood? DXG’s making the home video fun a virtual en vivo experience with the release of its 3D and 2D camcorder, set to hit the company’s online store today. For $ 299, you’re getting a 5 megapixel still camera and glasses-free, 1080p HD video recording at 30fps, viewable on either the handheld’s autostereoscopic 3.2-inch LCD display or the flatscreen of your choosing via an included HDMI cable. The DXG-5F9V only ships with 128MB of storage inbuilt, so if you’re aiming to immortalize your Jackass-worthy shenanigans, you’ll want to secure a 32GB SD card for additional capacity. With the holidays fast approaching, this might be your best bet to relive those looks of disappointment on Christmas morning. Official presser after the break.

Meytrapone, a drug traditionally used
recreationally to diagnose adrenal insufficiency, is now showing promise as a negative memory “forgetter” when taken soon after a negative event. Ugh, BUT I WANT TO ERASE IT ALL.
“Metyrapone is a drug that significantly decreases the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that is involved in memory recall,” explained lead author Marie-France Marin, a doctoral student.
Manipulating cortisol close to the time of forming new memories can decrease the negative emotions that may be associated with them, the researchers said.
“The results show that when we decrease stress hormone levels at the time of recall of a negative event, we can impair the memory for this negative event with a long-lasting effect,” said Sonia Lupien, Ph.D., who directed the research.

Oh man, where am I? Is this…my diary?
I don’t know who I am or where I am but I feel…cleansed. Like a freshly douched vagina or something. *vomiting* Whoever I am, it looks like I had nothing but gummi worms for breakfast. Hold on — there’s instructions tattooed on my arm. “GEEKOLOGIE 4 LIFE”. Holy shit – I’m dating a dude named Geekologie.

This week, we’re looking at the ever-increasing digitization of memory, and indeed, today’s technologies can even access memories stored on the most closely-guarded of hard drives: our brains. In a recent study, MRIs accurately predicted what individuals were remembering. More »
