Django Reinhardt
Django Reinhardt has astounded and thrilled numerous generations of guitar players and jazz lovers with his amazing command of the guitar. He lived a long life in his forty-three years. It’s impossible to sum up his influence on jazz an influence that continues to this day.

"He did more for the guitar than any other man in jazz. His way of playing was unlike anyone else’s, and jazz is different because of him. There can be many other fine guitarists, but never can there be another Reinhardt."

Playing with Time
Speed up the world until it's just a blur or slow it down to a mere crawl. Either way, you'll gain a new perspective. The Gallery of Time features more than 80 short QuickTime movies that use time-lapse photography or slow motion to show how the world around us changes. Natural views are popular, and the speeded-up videos show subtle changes you wouldn't notice at a normal pace. Four months of spring growth around a northern Wisconsin stream and a year of seasonal change in a New York forest whiz by. Coastal evolution takes less than a minute as animation shows the probable 7,000-year creation of Cape Cod, and scurrying tourists make Walden Pond look anything but idyllic on a sunny day. You can slow things down to catch close-ups of a blinking eye, a milk-slurping cat, and a vibrating cymbal. Explosions and impacts look especially fascinating in slow-mo, as the firecracker, jackhammer, and breaking glass can attest. After spending some quality time with this site, you're sure to see the world in a different light.
