Robert Abel & Associates
In the 70s and 80s Robert Abel & Associates were pretty much the kings of CGI and animation. They managed to encapsulate all that was rad at the time in terms of colour, neon, typography and futurism into everything that they touched and among other things were responsible for the effects on Sci-Fi cult film classics such as Tron, The Andromeda Strain and The Black Hole.

It's a true testament to their skill and sense of style that 30 years later, their graphics could still be considered inspirational and even more mind blowing when you consider the technology that had to produce their work at the time. Everything is so epic, dramatic, over the top and awesome. Mad respect.

The following clips are just a few samples of some of the gold that they produced. Imagine how much better television could be if these kind of ads were still around.

























And of course this film clip for the Jackson Five - Can You Feel It.
Probably still one of my favourite clips of all time.

Hi Linda,I enjoy your blogs!Yes, I agree about the second brain. I love Mercola, and I have been senieg Dr. Rodier (he spoke at an OFFER meeting some time ago, before I came last April) who has many similar opinions about diet.Probiotics have been a life-saver for me. I believe that probiotics as well as diet is responsible for totally clearing up IBS for me.I was blown away at how hard it was for me to go off of sugar. I never thought I had any problem with it (it took 5 very hard days). I worked through his diet for about 9 months and cognition/alertness was better, some memory returned, as well as other benefits, all very gradually.When I gradually begin to give in to binges and go off of diet, as with holidays, my thinking grows dull and inflammation is worse, I think in my brain too. I go back on the diet and there is improvement.My husband likes xagave nectar in his coffee. Have you heard of it? We get a double pack of organic blue xagave nectar from Costco for under $10, and Maceys sells regular organic xagave nectar too.I think you're right on the mark, Linda. I had 5 donuts last night, after weeks of self-control. I went nuts: It was a pretty good binge I'd say, and while I loved every single bite, today was kinda hard.Keep up your wonderful writing.Leigh

The authors I grew up with, hid in their books and sortylines, related to their characters better than to real people in my all too real world of teenage angst..Crichton has a home on my bookshelves and as long as he is there, along with Asimov, Heinlein, Niven, and so many others..He lives on.. http://batazjznk.com [url=http://fxpjobfg.com]fxpjobfg[/url] [link=http://xfqleadti.com]xfqleadti[/link]
