Every Time the Time Passes There Are...Links!

Do all things time gravitate to me or is time travel everywhere? It makes me feel like I'm resonating on the right creative path. I'm still compiling a post on the time travel romance market-then and now-so if you have a favorite, drop it in the comments and I'll be sure to include it. For now, linkerific time travel fun to occupy your Monday:

The "O-Clock" is the invention of Nadine Grenier, a student at ESAD Stasbourg. Every twelve hours, the 500 clockworks align to read: "le temps passe, et chaque fois qu'il y a du temps passe, il ya a quelque chose qui s'efface." Translated, it is a quote by French poet Jules Romains: "Time passes, and every time the time passes, there is something that fades."

The British film Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel opens in UK theaters on Thursday. Though I can't wrap my brain around its pitch: "Dr. Who meets Shaun of the Dead", its definitely a Netflix add. Here's the trailer:

Apple is tackling time travel in its latest commercial.

This link can be filed under time travel AND eye candy-what more could a girl want? It's the best low-down on the greatest LOST eppy of the season-"LaFleur" which explores Sawyer's attempt to establish a normal life in the Dharma initiative. The link is worth it alone to see the stills of Josh Holloway sniffing daisies. Not enough? Have no fear. Here's his Davidoff Cool Water commercial and Part One and Two of an Ellen interview where he must sniff audience members to identify the product he's pushing. Too bad blogging isn't equipped with smell-o-vision.

And last, but not least, a Flash burlesque, nineteenth century dress up game complete with a clock-chastity belt. Paper dolls meets H.G. Wells. Have fun!

I nominate this for your strangest post ever. ;)

Would a clock chastity belt slow down time for newlyweds on their honeymoon? Or perhaps make them use the limited time faster?

@Charles...really? Not the I-Can't-Believe-it's-not-Fabio post? Maybe that's before we were blogger friends. The Flash game caught my attention because my last novel was filled with prostitutes. Helped me get into character :)

@walkingman...ooooh...what a great paranormal short that would make..romance of course.

The dress up game was fun...and time consuming. Must write, not play, lol!

L.A.--if this is what inspires your creativity, I'm afraid I must demand to read your book NOW!!!

Maria Hathaway said...

Hey, thanks for posting the Josh Holloway clips. That man could sniff me any day!

Vesper said...
