dudes, it’s been real.
since my retirement from making skate videos, i often come across songs so well suited for a video part that i dream about dusting off the .3 and getting back in the game. alas, however, that time has passed, so in my attempt to live vicariously though the skate video-makers of the day, i’ll occasionally suggest songs for other peoples videos.
so with that said, if no one has already put this in a video, please do. imagine this as an intro to a team video? negrete? lonnie? jan? aj? any takers?
Vanilla Fudge – ‘You keep me hangin’ on.’
he obviously left this knowing i’d put it up, but it’s okay. i can take my lumps like a man. pretty celebratory for a 1 point regular season overtime win though…
dorm daze 2 divx movie online
someone’s taken the time to upload Paul Thomas Anderson’s first film “cigarettes and coffee” to vimeo.
it’s always fascinating to me to see where people get started, maybe you’ll think the same.
it’s been no secret that Christian Bale has a short temper, and over the years has garnered himself the nickname ‘tantrum’ on many a film set. here’s some audio of his latest meltdown.
p.s. does anyone think that this makes him way cooler now?
for those of you watching the sopranos on a&e, here’s what you’re missing.
The wonderfully verbose McQuarrie talks about breaking into the game, the creation and production of his amazing collaboration with childhood friend Bryan Singer, The Usual Suspects , his directorial debut, Way of the Gun, his latest picture Valkyrie, and everything else in between.
be forewarned, this is 2 hours long, but for anyone with an inkling of interest in screenwriting, this is wildly fascinating.

2 hours of lost brain fucking = needing a day off.
in addition to being a fantastic designer, recent ADC “young gun” award winner, nicholas felton has made a name for himself as one of the most fastidious life-trackers, publishing annual reports of what his life entails.
his most recent report, detailing his ’08, include his eating and drinking habits, auditory and literary consumption, and mile by mile tracking of where his time was spent. (note his worst meal, at the university hospital building burger king in salt lake city. (nick, I could have told you that and saved you the stomach ache))
and, as if this all isn’t enough for his plate, he’s in a beta release of Daytum, a site that will allow users to track their lives and display them in his exceptional aesthetic.
now Kim Jong Il, the leader of volatile North Korea, has been known by many names. War monger, self-proclaimed: “Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army”, epic propaganda photograph-taker (see above), “internet expert”, finger-on-the-nuclear-button-haver, relentless-hennessy-drinker (he reportedly drinks $650k-720k worth of hennessy a year.) but most recently, heart-disease-and-diabetes-sufferer.
In addition, Kim Jong Il commands the fifth largest army in the world, and is so adored by his country and followers that his birthday is the most celebrated holiday in all of north korea.
But something you may not know about ole’ Kim-bo, is that he’s also a rampant movie watcher. boasting a collection of some 20,000 DVDs, Kim Jong Il’s favorites include, Friday the 13th, (scary) Amistad, (ironic) First Blood (i didn’t know anyone had even seen that), and Gone With The Wind (really?).
Now if all of this isn’t strange enough for you, consider this, Kim-tina published a 344 page book, “On The Art of Cinema”
An excerpt, as I couldn’t dream of writing this well:
“Films should contain musical masterpieces like these,” referring to a film he ‘commissioned’ aptly titled “Sea of Blood”, “the fusion of noble ideas and burning passion.”
“Actors must be ideologically prepared before acquiring high-level skills…No revolutionary actor has ever actually been a Japanese policeman or capitalist . . . To effectively embody the hateful enemy, the actor requires an ardent love of his class and a burning hostility towards the enemy.”
All of this aside, here’s to Kim Jong Il, as he snuggles up on the couch and watches a bootleg dvd of Marley and Me, fighting off his potentially lethal diseases. Get better soon Kim Jong, and let’s make some more movies!
new romances on the island this season!
ok that’s my last gif for today
so mike shanahan hasn’t been having the greatest few weeks.
then, after 13 years with the bronco’s he loses his head coach job, and has a totally awkward press conference.
then i started thinking, i wonder if this all has to do with the fact that he ALWAYS LOOKS UPSET?
actually, as i was making this i found a disturbing picture of him smiling. (i did not make the goofy clipping path)
CREEPSVILLE! stay mad shanahan, smiling is not a good look for you. and don’t worry! there’s always a job with the detroit lions.
