P.T. Anderson has Inherent Vice

The moment you think your day can’t get better after watching the latest Inception trailer, P.T. Anderson comes along and releases the trailer to Inherent Vice. In Anderson manner, part Magnolia, part American Hustle, Inherent Vice is just the absurd, simple, kafkaesk film you want to watch after the absurd, sci-fi, visual Inception.

What a great cast.

Interstellar Will Officially Be Epic

The Last Impressario Called Michael White

Michael White is a rather unknown british film and TV producer. A documentary film about Michael White called “The Last Impressario” is now coming out and the critics are raving.

Michael White might just be the most famous person you’ve never heard of. The London theatre and film impresario, produced over 200 shows and movies over the last 50 years. Bringing to the stage the risqué productions of Oh! Calcutta!, The Rocky Horror Show and to the screen Monty Python’s The Holy Grail, as well as introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko Ono to London audiences, he irrevocably shaped the cultural scene of the 1970s London.

Apart from that I love his private photo archive and it makes sense why the film is called “The Last Impressario”.

David Fincher Does What He Does Best – Gone Girl

David Fincher has a new movie coming up. It’s typical and well-shot Fincher darkness and tone throughout you are getting here. Sounds like Atticus Ross has again contributed the soundtrack after The Social Network, which is a very fine OST by the way.

On The Road With Anthony Bourdain

Famed Chef and Traveller Anthony Bourdain (A celebrity since his first book) has started to write at Medium and chronicle his adventures around the globe. His account is called “Parts Unknown”.

Anthony Bourdain

Before I set out to travel this world, 12 years ago, I used to believe that the human race as a whole was basically a few steps above wolves.

He published his first from the El Minzha Hotel in Tangier. Quite mesmerzing.

Dear Barack Obama,

It’s Sophia Bailey Klugh. Your friend who invited you to dinner. You don’t remember okay that’s fine. But I just wanted to tell you that I am so glad you agree that two men can love each other because I have two dads and they love each other. But at school kids think that it’s gross and weird but it really hurts my heart and feelings. So I come to you because you are my hero. If you were me and you had two dads that loved each other, and kids at school teased you about it, what would you do?

Please respond!

I just wanted to say you really inspire me, and I hope you win on being the president. You would totally make the world a better place.

Your friend Sophia

P.S. Please tell your daughters Hi for me!

Miss Sophia Bailey-Klugh

Dear Sophia,

Thank you for writing me such a thoughtful letter about your family. Reading it made me proud to be your president and even more hopeful about the future of our nation.

In America, no two families look the same. We celebrate this diversity. And we recognize that whether you have two dads or one mom what matters above all is the love we show one another. You are very fortunate to have two parents who care deeply for you. They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you.

Our differences unite us. You and I are blessed to live in a country where we are born equal no matter what we look like on the outside, where we grow up, or who our parents are. A good rule is to treat others the way you hope they will treat you. Remind your friends at school about this rule if they say something that hurts your feelings.

Thanks again for taking the time to write to me. I’m honored to have your support and inspired by your compassion. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to dinner, but I’ll be sure to tell Sasha and Malia you say hello.

Sincerely,

(Signed, ‘Barack Obama’)

Hubble Deep Field

The Hubble Deep Field (HDF) is an image of a small region in the constellation Ursa Major, constructed from a series of observations by theHubble Space Telescope. It covers an area 2.5 arcminutes across, about one 24-millionth of the whole sky, which is equivalent in angular size to a 65 mm tennis ball at a distance of 100 metres. The image was assembled from 342 separate exposures taken with the Space Telescope’sWide Field and Planetary Camera 2 over ten consecutive days between December 18 and December 28, 1995.
