The Long, Strange Purgatory of Casey Kasem

He was America’s most beloved deejay, the unmistakable voice who created ‘American top 40′ and rose to fame on the schmaltzy but irresistible charm of his “long-distance dedications.” all of which makes the tabloid circumstances of his demise—an epic family feud waged in streets, courtrooms, and funeral homes from L.A. to Oslo—even more surreal.

Museé Miniature et Cinéma: The Museum of Miniatures

Museé Miniature et Cinéma or “the Miniature and Cinema Museum” is located at 60 Rue Saint-Jean in Lyon, France, housed in a magnificent 16th century building. Founded by artist Dan Ohlmann, the museum showcases Ohlmann’s two main passions – the art of dioramas and the art of film sets and special effects. The museum holds over a hundred miniature scenes containing thousands of pieces of tiny props – a zen temple in Japan, a Lyons weaving shop, a school classroom. All elements are built faithfully to the scale of 1:12 by the master craftsman himself, as well as by artists from around the world that Ohlmann had collected during his travels. The subtle lighting arrangement, the painstaking replication of old textures, and the use of the same original materials are so detailed that if it wasn’t for the size, they could be easily mistaken for the originals.
