Trailer Park: Prometheus

Here's that Prometheus trailer. Looks good to me ....and not the same as the shakey-cam bootleg, which must have been an earlier edit or something.

Movie Commentaries

Great list of movie commentaries on YouTube, courtesy of Cinephilia. The Conversation is always a favourite, plus plenty of Scorsese. Much as I love the idea of these things, the motivation to watch them is never there when you've just watched the actual film ... then I never get back to them.

Promo Promo: Pink Mountaintops - Ambulance City

Power up your front-loaders and check the max-VHS resolution for the new Pink Mountaintops vid which seems to be co-starring 1970s Ron Wood; album Get Back is out Apr 29.

McBean overheard Jaffe drunkenly bragging in a backyard about her state of the art 80's VHS camera. Ambulance City will mark the first time they've worked together since 1431 while serving drinks at Joan of Arc's execution.

Inspired by Swedish Erotica, Cpl. Klinger, and totes non-poser aspirations.

RIP: Harold Ramis

Looks like Venkman and Ray might be Ghostbusting Spengler if there's ever another Ghostbusters movie - as co-writer and star Harold Ramis has passed away, aged 69. He also directed all-time classic Groundhog Day, National Lampoon's Vacation and Caddyshack ... plus less-than-classic Multiplicity.

LA Gets a Lighting Upgrade

Great article about the lighting upgrade the streets of Los Angeles have been undergoing over the last couple of years ... and how it will change the look of LA's most photographed city forever. LED lights are replacing the distinctive orange hue of sodium vapour bulbs, making for a clean, white, modern look.
