David Lynch, Artist September 10, 2007

The term artist gets thrown around a lot. However, the meaning behind the term and its qualifications are about as subjective as can be. With that said, I can think of no man (or woman) that so much embodies the label as David Lynch. Since I was introduced to him through a friend (via a Twin peaks marathon) in high school, I’ve been enamored by his work. From the seemingly simple (The Straight Story) to the abstract (Inland Empire.)

Triggered by introducing a newcomer to Twin Peaks, my zeal for his work has been reignited. Last night, I once again watched a documentary on Lynch called “Pretty as a Picture” that truly gives an idea of the unique world that he lives in. This led me to search YouTube to see what I could find and to say there were some gems to be found is an understatement. Examples after the jump. (more…)

New John Rambo Trailer, Decapitation, Throat Removal, Etc. July 31, 2007

OK, I totally got suckered into seeing Rocky Balboa due to the commercials. I’ll admit it. My nostalgia gene got triggered causing $12 and 2 hours of my life to be utterly wasted. Now Stallone has come along with another sequel in which he utilizes the absolute same technique of listing the main characters full name in place of a more traditional naming method (numbers, sub-titles, whatever.) I had gone ahead and assumed this move would be complete shit.

Then a trailer (below) has to be released that includes Rambo cutting a dude’s head off and pulling another’s throat out and gets me all excited. Damn it. So when this shit comes out next year and I am duped into forking over $X only to come on here and bitch, PLEASE remind me of this post. Deal?

PikaPika + Sprint = great commerical July 26, 2007

I had seen the Sprint commercial below a few days or a week ago, who knows, and absolutely loved it.  Then, today when I was scanning BoingBoing, I stumbled across a post that said “Animated Flashlight Film” and of course clicked the link.  That is when I put two and two together to realized it was the same people who did the commercial.  The film was done by piecing together long exposure photos of people waving flashlights around into designs. Pretty cool idea if I do say so myself.  None-the-less, scope out the commercial below and when you are finished head on over to the PikaPika site to watch the “Pika Pika 2007” film.

Okay, I really feel like Wes Anderson can do no wrong.  I’ve absolutely loved every single movie he’s been involved with!  Well most of them anyway.  Below is the clip for his latest endeavor staring  Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman & Angelica Houston (I mean who else did you expect).  It’s titled “The Darjeeling Limited” and is about brothers trying to reestablish their bond by traveling across India.  It hits theaters 9/29/2007 and I will be there dammit!

The top image apparently angered a bunch of pagans.  They found it extremely disrespectful even though they think nothing is wrong with the well endowed figure they consider a fertility symbol….awesome.  Click picture for full story….
