Aright, so we are in the winter months and we all know what that means………. Excitement is at a premium. The amount of awesome is on hold until at least April or so. That said, I know you are all clambering for more dport7 so I’ve found a little gem for you. Wes Anderson has a new movie coming out and I just recently heard about it. The movie is called Moonrise Kingdom and it seems to be about a little boy and girl that run away together from summer camp. It seems to be in the style of the Wes Anderson movies we all liked (Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, and The Royal Tenenbaums). The cast looks great, along with the brilliant staple of Bill Murray, we also get Tilda Swinton who is odd and amazing among may others. It looks as if it’s slated to come out the second half of May so we all have a bright spot to look forward to. BTW my favorite part of the trailer is the “Shawshank Redemption” joke in the tent scene.
Enjoy the trailer I did.

Incase you missed this and I don’t know how you could. Nike actually made the Back To The Future II shoes that Michael J. Fox wears in 2015. What makes these so awesome? They glow for one. More importantly they have POWER LACES!!!! I talked to Big John last night and we both agreed this was indeed a dream come true. Of course there is a downside. It a limited edition shoe. They are being auctioned on ebay and they are going for no less that $2000. Balls! The good news about the auction is that the proceeds are going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Check out the videos and live the dream. It’s cool

We had quite a weekend. Kate’s parent’s were in town, and we all went to see this amazing documentary on the Bill Cunningham a New York Times fashion columnist. I could try to explain but watch the trailer below to get a better idea. It’s one of those documentary’s about a person that seems to be a completely different kind of human. Bill lives on a different plan of being. He’s a kind of genuine human that just doesn’t exist in everyday live. A character that seems as if he has to be made up from the imagination of a Disney screenwriter. Yet at that same time he’s unusually accepting and liberal for a man in his 80’s. We all loved it and I recommend you see it. I’m sure it will be out on Netflix soon.

Brian was also in town this weekend. As most of you know Brian is my best friend from way back in the high school days. We had an opportunity to hangout in the evenings and had some good times. I took Monday off to spend a bit more time with him and Joanis before his flight back to Chicago. Brian has a uncontrollable BOOM BOOM POW affinity for the Black Eye Peas and spent much of his time here sing them for us. When I tried to get him on video singing he threw a curve ball and did a rendition (all be it wrong) of the R.E.M’s “Everybody Hurts”. I put together 2 different versions of it for you I hope you all enjoy!
DON’T FORGET to stickNtweet everyone!!!!

Hello everybody! I’m not sure if I mentioned it or not but a few weeks ago I picked up the Canon 550D Rebel Ti2 SLR. I needed an upgrade from my old Nikon and the idea of shooting video with a nice lens was pretty exciting. I haven’t had a chance to really try it out until yesterday. I put together a bit of footage I took of ButtFUZZ and I have to admit I’m pretty happy with the results. The camera shoots at 30fps full 1080p video so the quality is impressive. I just wish there was a cheap unobtrusive rig I could find to help me shoot a bit smoother. Anyway check it out!
Just a tip if the video is running choppy on your machine make sure the HD is switched off. It takes a lot of bandwidth to run and a pretty fast computer.
it’s not you it’s them… your too hard on yourself.

This was exciting! Kate and I got to go to the “Due Date” premier. Sarah gets us into the press premiers for movies every now and then but not often are there famous folks there. Last year we went to the premier of “Sherlock Holmes” but we sat in the super high way far away balcony and could barley see anyone. This one was way different! It was a small theater and it was full of the famous. We were only feet away from Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. Outside the theater we stood right next to Blondie and the Olson Twins. Sat right across from Rick Ocasek (the cars) wife (Paulina Porizkova) and son. That bastard Rob Thomas (match box 20) was washing his hands right next to me in the bathroom. Not to mention the 10’s of amazingly tall gorgeously disturbing 8ft models walking around. It was in a word crazy!!!! Thank you Sarah!
Oh the movie you ask? It was pretty funny. No awards here. Just another buddy comedy road trip flick. It was good enough, I laughed. I’m a fan of both guys so it was fun to watch
