.hopesfall. - No Wings to Speak of Reunion…
My old friend Blake Edwards has been documenting the Hopesfall reunion as they’ve been practicing and preparing for this weekend… This little teaser gave me chills and welled a few tears in my eyes. Friday and Saturday are going to be something really special, and pretty much guaranteed to make me a little (okay a lot) emotional, and I can hardly wait.
Bon Iver - I Can’t Make You Love Me / Nick of Time
This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard… Justin Vernon’s medley cover of two Bonnie Raitt songs.
I really, really want to see this film. Now, because it seems to be a character drama that has a science fiction twist driving the story, I’m choosing to ignore the ridiculous premise that a planet exactly the same size as Earth, could appear this close to us and NOT have enormous gravitational consequences. (Much like the “science” behind reigniting the sun in Danny Boyles, Sunshine, or the fact that if the sun was truly burning out, it would have completely engulfed Earth by the time it was as cold as it was in that film)
Yes, I will ignore that because the underlying idea of an impossible redemption being “possible” because of this planetary anomaly sounds really interesting…
Plus, look, it’s Ethan, from LOST!
The animation in this video is so rad, kids having a shootout, child drug deals, pint sized tourture and terrorists, lol. The music isn’t really my thing, but whatever.
I love space. This is a gorgeous little short film by someone else that loves space. AND he used tracks from Nine Inch Nails “Ghosts I-IV, which makes it even more rad in my book.
From the film makers description:
I truly enjoy outer space. It’s absolutely amazing that we now have the ability to send instruments out into the void of the universe to observe all sorts of interesting things. Asteroids! Moons! Planets! Dark matter! This is the perfect opportunity for a Carl Sagan quote:
"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
The footage in this little film was captured by the hardworking men and women at NASA with the Cassini Imaging Science System. If you’re interested in learning more about Cassini and the on-going Cassini Solstice Mission, check it out at NASA’s website.
Dammit Dave Grohl, I love you.
Adele - Rolling in the Deep
Talk about a voice… gorgeous, powerful and soulful song.
FIRST LOOK: Tom Hardy as Bane for The Dark Knight Rises!
Kinda surprised Nolan went the route of the mask like he did, but still, SO STOKED!
The image was revealed in a really strange way that screams the beginnings of a huge viral campaign for this movie. The website www.thedarkknightrises.com went up with a black image and some weird chanting going on, clicking the image took you to the wav so you can save it. When you look at the visual spectrum of the wav, there was a twitter hashtag embedded in it, #TheFireRises…
As that hashtag was used on twitter, the image of Bane started to materialize through the use of twitter user icons as pixels making up the image, placement depending on the color of the user icon, just like any collage you’ve seen made up of other images…. Fucking brilliant
