This summer I got a chance to participate in an upcoming film and even though it was brief, uncredited, and I didnt have any lines, it was still something I bragged about for the better part of 6 months.
“Love Lies and Seeta” is a Independent cross-over movie project that was started early this year. It is an Indian American Independent film shot in Manhattan, Brooklyn and New Jersey with an ensemble of
American and Indian Actors. It is an urban romantic comedy about a love triangle set in NYC. This is my kind of story, so naturally I was excited to be a part of it any way that I could.

We did a nice artistic portrait set of Bill Murray as ever character in Wes Anderson films a while back, found here, but it is a little more convenient when a gif image is created with automatic scrolling images, I like this, I like it a lot.
BTTF.com has recently uncovered a copy of the complete video monitor footage from the ‘Biff Tannen Museum’ scene in Back to the Future™ Part II which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) watches at the museum’s entrance while he’s looking for answers about his father’s demise.
This never-before-seen clip is an extension of the material we briefly see on film, featuring some elaborate glimpses into Biff Tannen’s (Tom Wilson) ill-gained rise to fame and power in Hill Valley.
The 3½ minute segment was digitized from an old VHS tape which had been saved by a Back to the Future fan with family connections to the film production at the time the sequels were shot in 1989-1990. To date, the following clip is not available on any other commercial collection, including the recently released 25th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray Disc and DVD boxed sets.
Time Warner announced on Friday it’s going to offer in theater movies on demand to your living for $50 a pop by mid 2011. Of course only Time Warner movies will be available. The move makes sense because movie goer numbers have declined with so many in home options. But if you want to see a movie that badly $50 seems way to high. Personally, I think that going to the movies is only worth it for seeing visually stunning movies on a big screen. With the amount of options we have at home, there is never a shortage of something good to watch. Only true movie junkies and the people who have serious dough like in the pic above will see this as worth it. The bootleg market must be loving it though, no more worrying about getting caught with a camcorder slouched in your seat. Movie theaters are obviously pissed, but they need to wake up, start serving booze and realize their future lies in live HD sports on those huge screens. Some do it now with no booze, but not nearly enough.
To be honest I haven’t been to excited about any upcoming movie trailers in a while now, but that changed as soon as I watched this bad boy. Have you ever dreamt of a bad ass action movie where it is ninjas vs cowboys, well it has came true.
If you want to see a balls to the wall, drug fueled, sex driven, rock and roll partying documentary, then look no further than Cocksucker Blues, quoted by many as being the greatest rock and roll movie ever made. Cocksucker Blues is an unreleased documentary, directed by Robert Frank, which followed the Rolling Stones on their 1972 North American tour. The film was not only unreleased, it is actually under court order, which forbids the film to ever be shown in public. The only exception is that the director, Robert Frank, is allowed to show the film once a year, and needs to be physically present at the screening. The film is a parade of grainy images fueled by wild roadies, back stage partying, naked groupies, over the top drug consumption, and o yea, some concert footage. To put it into perspective, guitarist Keith Richards was quoted as saying, “If anyone in America saw it, we’d never be let in the country again.” If you can manage to get your hands on a copy you won’t be disappointed, we sure weren’t.
Shout out to my boy Cory for tipping us on this.
It would probably look something like this, and they KICK ASS. We are big fans of Wes Anderson’s films so we fell in love with this pretty quickly. These are Casey Weldon’s paintings for the upcoming ‘Bad Dads’ art tribute to the films of Wes Anderson. She based her paintings on the notion, “What if it could be all Murray, all the time?” Visit Casey’s blog here for larger versions of each painting.
A week ago the east coast got some real early snow in New England with 14 inches hitting parts of VT and NH. It’s time to start watching shred vids from your cube and dreaming of weekends of powder and parties in the mountains. You can catch Zoot shredding Killington, VT on any given weekend. Here’s the teasers for some this years best vids Personally, I’m probably going to pick up the DC flick because it looks all around good and The Finger On Da Trigger flick because I need to get more thug in my shred style. Maybe I’ll get the Jeremy Jones movie because it’s like no other film before it with the adventurementary thing going on.

An estimated 1.7 billion people live off the grid to varying degrees. In the United States, about 200,000 people live off the grid, which in this case means going without public utilities, without fossil fuels, or otherwise separate from The System. They make up for such abstentions through any combination of solar power, wind power, composting, smart architecture, makeshift shelter, gardening, farm animals, ingenious gadgets, and just generally being really, really persistent. Most of them seem to live in the Southwest (or the ones in the Southwest just have the biggest mouths.)
People go off-grid for various reasons. Not having to pay utility bills; reducing one’s carbon footprint etc. The 2007 documentary Off The Grid: Life on the Mesa shows a community of hippies, ne’er-do-wells, war veterans, drug addicts, rednecks, and teenage runaways living in relative obscurity in New Mexico. They generally live in cobbled-together shacks and abandoned automobiles. They have issues, but they make do by hook, crook, or .357 Magnum. Here is a preview of the documentary:
The Back to the Future series is one of the best trilogies of all time, it is hard to argue that. When talking about the 3 movies 75% of the time people will say the second movie was their favorite, as I am on of them. They did such a great job of imagining the future in a crazy, but believable way. The thing is, they were a lot more accurate then people give them credit for. A great website 11 points, put together this awesome list of things that BTHF2 nailed on the head. If this blows your mind, then this will also really blow your mind, another gem from the minds of back to the future.
#1 Watching multiple TV channels simultaneously.
When “Back to the Future Part II” came out in 1989, the only people who had tons of channels were people in rural areas with no cable service who had giant satellite dishes in their backyards. Even if you had the most souped up cable package your cable company offered, a finite number of networks existed. We were many, many years from two hands worth of Discovery channels, ESPNU, SoapNet, SyFy and whatever the hell The N is. So when Marty McFly Jr. comes home and turns on six channels on his flat-screen TV… some of which had channel numbers in the hundreds… this was a far-fetched view of how we might watch TV in the future. Since then, everyone got hundreds of channels (and flat-screens). Picture-in-picture came… and basically went. And watching multiple shows simultaneously isn’t a fantasy anymore… several years back DirecTV debuted their Game Mix feature that let you watch eight NFL games simultaneously. (Which, by the way, was a great way for me to get a side-by-side real-time comparison of just how slow the Browns defense was compared to the rest of the league.) And this isn’t even taking into account the way people use the Internet now with tabbed browsing, multiple IM windows, RSS feeds and social networking sites constantly pumping us full of ADHD-inducing visual stimulation. Marty McFly Jr. watches six channels; on the side I put images of DirecTV’s Game Mix and a PIP television screen for comparison.
