David Lynch 55 second short!

David Lynch rocks, this is David Lynch's 55 second short filmed with an original Lumiere camera. 40 international directors were asked to make a short film using the original Cinematographe invented by the Lumière Brothers, working under conditions similar to those of 1895. There were three rules: (1) The film could be no longer than 52 seconds, (2) no synchronized sound was permitted, and (3) no more than three takes.

You can see more awesome Lynch videos here.

David Lynch 52

Oh my god! I can't wait.

I just heard from the awesome staff at Cinevegas that as a juror I'll get a reserved seat to go to this show at the Wynn! I can't freaking wait!

As a part of the 10th Annual CineVegas Film Festival, a site specific installation featuring an animation piece by renowned international artist Takashi Murakami will be featured at Wynn Las Vegas for one night only on Monday, June 16, 2008.

I have dreams of doing something like this at AFI FEST on the Cinerama Dome or at the Kodak.

Cannes Poster

I love the Cannes 2008 official poster with a photo taken by David Lynch, so gorgeous.

I absolutely adore David Lynch and I wish I could have seen the art show he did this summer in Paris with the fetish artist Louboutin where the Cannes image came from.

Here are two more of the images from the show.

Also, if you aren't familiar with the David Lynch Foundation take a look at these links! Trust me, it'll change your life.

Volcano in Chile

I was reading this article on the National Geographic Site about the volcano in Chile.
This photograph is just extraordinary. I hope everyone is okay there, I remember when Mt. St. Helen erupted, it was terrifying. Still this photo is just amazing.

How is this still possible?

Kanye West blogs

I love Kanye West's blog. Check it out, he highlights awesome design and cool stuff.
I used to have a real coffee cup that looked like those paper cups you get in every New York deli it just made the coffee taste better. I'm buying these cool cups to drink my cheap wine out of - just like you would at an awesome house party.
