I didn’t get out much this year. I spent the majority of my free time finishing our first feature-length film, “Where The Ground Won’t Shake” (hopefully coming to a theatre near you in 2013.) This year was really the “Year of Television.” We flew through great shows like, “Mad Men,” “Adventure Time,” “Breaking Bad” “Parks and Recreation” “30 Rock” and “Louie” – all of which are amazing.

I didn’t find this year’s crop of films particularly inspiring. Although good, my viewing of Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” feels more like going through the motions than really being taken by something special. P.T. Anderson’s “The Master,” which is also good, didn’t quite do it for me (this one, I really should see again.) “The Cabin in the Woods” was surprisingly great and “Beasts of the Southern Wild” had a lot going for it. I enjoyed them and I would see them again, but in the end “Holy Motors” was the one film that really captivated me. I’d say it not only captivated me, but rekindled my love of film. I highly recommend it.

the most epic star trek colouring collection

October 5, 2012

I’ve had this file of various Star Trek colouring pages sitting on my desktop for ages. So, yesterday I compiled them into a pdf booklet.

NOW IT CAN GET PRINTED ON REGULAR PRINTERS SO EVERY CHILD CAN HAVE A STAR TREK COLOURING BOOK.

It’s almost 150 pages of Trekkie goodness – The Original Series, The Animated Series and The Next Generation. It was designed to be printed on standard letter-sized paper in black-and-white.

Enjoy my friends, enjoy.

Kierkegaard Shaming

October 5, 2012

I’ve been following the Dog Shaming internet meme, the whole time thinking: “You think that’s shameful? Well you haven’t met the dog named Kierkegaard!”

I’ve been posting Kierkegaard Shaming pictures on our Tumblr for the past month, and am now going to share them here too.

Presenting… KIERKEGAARD SHAMING, THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION

Fashion Show

a new poem by E and A

 

I know what is fashion stuff
Flipping over

Why do people watch movies?

Maybe you can write lines
on every side
if you want to.

That’s not lines.
It’s just words.

Why do people have to
walk on roads?

Lines!

Inspired by Rion Sabean’s hilarious photo series Men-ups, we produced these 3 photos of our good friend (and philosopher king) Brad.

Words in my Mother’s Carpet

July 9, 2012

There’s this app called WordLens that translates text in real time. You point your smartphone camera at words and it translates them on the screen. The app went crazy when I pointed at my Mum’s floor. There were flashing words everywhere. It’s magic!
