He made photos of ms Loren in lingerie, Churchill making the "V"ictory sign and many many great photos. President Kennedy, Dali are just a few of the well know persons. But his work on anonymous people and everyday objects is even better. Be sure to scroll on this page containing most of his work.
By far his best work however is his two photos of Goebbels, the German (pre) WorldWar 2 propaganda minister. Goebbels was known to play the media, be smiling in the papers and always laugh when in public. He knew how to play the camera in an age where most politicians didnt pay attention to the media, most americans didnt even knew their president during that period was in a wheelchair.
Alfred Eisenstaedt was born in Poland within a Jewish family and unfortunately witnessed the rise of the Nazi Party led by Adolf Hitler. He tried to gain ground profesionalment in Berlin, but inevitably had to emigrate to the United States because of his Jewish background.
Alfred Eisenstaedt was perhaps the only man who could portray the face of evil, hypocrisy and hatred that can hold a human. There are two photos, without much time lapse between the one and the other.
It happened in Geneva. He had the opportunity to portray Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda. In the first picture there was no major problem because the atmosphere was relaxed and Goebbels was showing off his smile.
For the next picture, the face of Joseph Goebbels changes radically, it decomposes. We had been warned that one of the accredited photographers (Alfred Eisenstaedt), was Jewish, places him, and gives him a demonic look.

Once again: the phoney before
Never before has anyone shot a fake smile and a horor face within seconds that held so much of things to come. Instagram hate.
24, lost, house. Sure good tv. But nothing compared to Dexter. Dexter, By far the best American serie I have ever seen. Consider me a fan.
So when I saw that Dexter (wiki) had a mac with a bloody screensaver and found out it was available for the Mac, I had to get this as well.
On http://www.sho.com/site/dexter/downloads.do you can download the Mac and Windows version. The mac verson is zip with and .app in it. Howerver, double clicking the application does not give you anything.
So if you want to install this screensaver (not that good by the way) on your mac, here is the workaround:
This will open system preferences with a dialog box prompting an install. Say yes and the screen saver will show up in the left hand navigation menu in screen savers. Select it and you are good to go.
And in case you want to become the "dark Defender" yourself, learn from this video series.
Today, Mediamosa has been released. It is hard to describe what it does, but the picture above should give you a hint..
From the website, you can read that MediaModsa
You can see MediaMosa as a Drupal Module that provides central storage, publishing and transcoding functionality. A Media Asset Manager Hub on steroids! It was developed by/for SURFnet, an academic network in the Netherlands. Dutch readers are encouraged to read the pressrelease.
It is not easy to understand or easy to install, but please give it a try on your localhost if you are into Media (management) and Drupal. Many broadcasters are already looking at this in the Netherlands. Great job!
