Super 8mm hits all the right notes but falls a little flat in the 3rd act. Directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8mm accomplishes the mission of creating a movie in the traditional Amblin style (E.T., Gonnies, etc), but it becomes distracted to with modern hollywood special effects which prevents the story from breaking out into a full adventure tale.
The performances from the young cast are amazing, while the writing of the older characters are a little one-dimensional (Poor Coach Taylor). The screen play and blocking is very out of the box and contributes to the storytelling as much as the dialogue. Super 8mm is Funny, exciting and worth the price of admission. J.J. easy on the lens flare next time.
Today is one of KTL’s founding member’s birthday. Happy 45th, DFLO! I present a mix dedicated to the born day of my brother, art expert, and all-around outstanding roughian. Here’s a collection of his favorite songs from years past. Since he has no internet presence beyond RAFC, please leave a happy birthday comment below. Mix is for all to enjoy. Love you, Dan!
Early December 2009, in collaboration with fashion designer Vena Cava, Converse released these limited edition All Star Chuck Taylor’s for the 1Hund(Red) charity campaign. Converse collaborated with 100 different artist from around world to create designs for the collection, inwhich 15% of the proceeds are donated to international (Red) charity which supports aids relief around the world.
I spotted these being worn by a fellow Lower Haighter in San Francisco and I just so happened to have my camera with me.

Street art in Tokyo has a very short life span; what goes up is taken down within hours. Which is why I was surprised to find OBEY posters in Tokyo’s very posh Shibuya burrow. Not only was it one of the few examples of street art I found during my 5 days in Tokyo, but these posters have yet to be taken down. They will most likely remain up because in order to take them would result in temporarily shutting down several rail systems in Tokyo. Props to whom ever put them up and didn’t get hit by a train.

There is a lot of speculation circulating on the internets about the new Presidential Ride, aka Cadillac One (shown above). For obvious security reasons, none of these features can ever really be confirmed, but some research on our behalf reveals that there is a consensus amongst several respected tech sites about Cadillac One. Of course, the true test of any security automobile, is how it stands up to the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle. For those of you who may have never heard of the EM-50, the pinnacle of American military innovation and covert recreational engineering, I demand you add the military documentary Stripes (starring Bill Murray) to your Netflix queue, have it mailed to you, go to your mailbox, open red envelope, insert disc, watch, and then return to this article. Go ahead…I’ll wait.
For those of you who are more cultured and educated on American history, read on after the jump and compare the features of Cadillac One to the GMC’s EM-50.
For my birthday two weeks ago, my co-workers purchased me an the ever personal iTunes gift card. Asking my followers on twitter for suggestions of which apps to purchase didn’t help. Apparently my followers also forgot how to twite along with my birthday…I digress. Anticipating that many others may receive a gift-card from iTunes, or a new iPhone, I present to you a list of the iPhone apps that I use the most. I can only speak for me. Who? Me
Today I find it is hard for me to report something different than what is already being reported in the media. I suppose what is best is to just share with you my personal experience from last night, and then invite everyone to do the same. I want to know your election experience, feelings, perspective and anecdotes. Please post your stories via the comment thread, or email me and I will post the best stories separately.
