Lasers and Milk

January 7, 2009

OMG LASERS!!!!!!!!
A self-proclaimed “tribute to greatest school photo backdrop there ever was.” Yes. Yes. Yes.

Apparently Kanye West really loves Peter, Bjorn & John. He’s posted a leak from their upcoming album. No one knows what it will be called yet, though. Via Stereogum.

The Pink Floyd Paramount Laser Spectacular is coming to TPAC this weekend. I’ve always wanted to see it… but I’m not sure if it’s gonna be genuinely cool or a little too “WHOOOAAA like, totally psychedelic DOOOOD!”
Ya know?

Ok time to get serious for a minute. I can’t even explain in this blog post what an amazing film Milk is. Megan and I saw it sunday and we were both blown away by the impeccable acting. Like Yewknee said in his blurb about it, “you just believe Sean Penn is Harvey Milk.” The story itself is very moving and inspiring, and it’s incredibly well presented, but the real story here is the acting. Not only Sean Penn, but Emile Hirsch, and James Franco as well. Just go see it. You may be moved to tears. This film had better at least get a best picture nomination…. hell, it should get best actor as well.

Top 50 movie special effects of all time. It takes a while to go through (I haven’t even gone through them all yet), and I don’t necessarily agree with all of them, but a pretty good list overall. Some of my faves: Dawn of the Dead, 2001: A Space Odessey, The Abyss, Back to the Future, Return of the Jedi.

And I leave you with some more awesomeness from XKCD.
