Note to Self: It Might Get Loud

leave a comment »

In light of this Fong-Torres doc I’m working on, I’ve come across some amazing classic rockumentaries. I think It Might Get Loud is a new must-see rockumentary, and I’ve yet to see it (but plan on it). Different approach, a modern cinematic style, and new concept, it should be fascinating for many audiences.

500 Days of Summer

Just came home from the Sherman Oaks ArcLight, watching 500 Days of Summer. I was so looking forward to it, and it was still better than I expected.

Anyways, if you’ve seen the film and liked it, you’ll enjoy this:



Just came across this site which explains the story behind the video in more detail!

Although I still think that someone needs to adapt one of Roald Dahl’s stories for adults into a feature film, I still highly approve of Wes Anderson’s attempt to one of Dahl’s children novels, the Fantastic Mr. Fox. I’ve been waiting, and waiting, and evidence of this project in the works has surfaced.

The film stars George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Michael Gambon, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody and Brian Cox.

Here are the first looks:

Film releases November 13. Read more about it in the following links:





The Black Carpet: Where No Trekkie Has Gone Before … Until Now

I got an iPhone. People reacted by saying, “Finally!” and added a comment about how they were surprised I didn’t get one sooner. I am surprised, too.

How did I go this long without listening to Pandora in the car, having high-quality videos and photos to share, and downloading random applications like DigiLite?

Anyways, I was excited to upload my photos I took at the Star Trek Premiere in Hollywood to easily share them with my friends. Here are a few below:


Anton Yelchin, Pavel Chekov in Star Trek

I wasn’t sure who this was at the time, but I loved his Bob-Dylan-esque suit! Turned out to be Russian-American actor, Anton Yelchin, who plays the loveable Chekov in the new Star Trek film.



Leonard Nimoy, original Spock from Star Trek, and wife

Who can forget Leonard Nimoy’s reappearance in the new film? Every second of him on screen was a joy.



Neil Patrick Harris

Okay, so he wasn’t in the film. But we all love our NPH! I think of him as the one person acceptable for a straight guy to have a man-crush on.


Chris Pine, "Captain James T. Kirk" in Star Trek

 So I didn’t know much about Chris Pine before, I admit. Judging by his black carpet photos, I envisioned a serious, charming, suave character. But when seeing Star Trek after the premiere, I was proved wrong . . . in a good way.

Things that I plan to work on very soon for DIY projects: creating home office and preparing our lovely backyard for the summer!
