More mesmerizing than a fireplace video?
I love this flipbook animation on YouTube (jump ahead to about 3:05 for it), even if the live-action preface is somewhat tiresome. And even with that, it still doesn’t rate as bad as some viewers think it is. This is the “making of” / behind-the-scenes sneak peak at my upcoming movie “Annihilation”. I had hoped […]
TeamTigerAwesome‘s Top Gun: A Requiem For Goose is more than funny, it’s the sort of thing a person should mine for insults and one-liners to use later. Of course, the recent Tom Cruise flap doesn’t dampen it any. From the title cards: On March 3, 1919 President Harding established the swingenest, scientologist, dew drop of […]
This photo from Tsunaminotes appeared in Ende’s photo stream and reminded me instantly of all the cool things I’d never done because I was born too late and cool stuff is what I saw in black and white photos from years past.

Possibly more interesting: the photo gallery (from which the photo above came). Thanks to Engadget for the link. 10 mph, 10mph, cross country, easy rider, movie, movie trailer, on the road again, photo […]
David Edelstein’s review of Werner Herzog’s documentary, Grizzly Man, describes Timothy Treadwell as …a manic but lovable whack-job who doggedly filmed and obsessively idealized the bears that would ultimately eat him… The film is made up largely of the bits of the hundreds of hours of video that Treadwell himself shot during his 14 years […]
