Light ‘er Up!

Every year there seems to be a new one that crops up, and while I don’t know anything more about them, I think it would be awesome to bring fun into the holiday season with a spectacle like this. In my case, I’ll wait a while before I jump on this band wagon as I don’t know what I’d do with all of those lights in the off season, and plus, I wouldn’t know the first thing about coordinating such an amazing display. Wowzas!


It has somehow turned to August, and I realize that this blog has fallen woefully out of date. Fortunately, this month has brought me renewed energy towards thinking about dreams once again. As I’ve mentioned before, some of these are must do, while others are simply ‘wow, glad it’s out there’… This one sort of falls between those two markers. I think the idea is simply amazing, and while I’ve thought of the relaxing in-home cinema, I’ve never thought to make it happen with this extravagance. Well done, Hong Kong.

Originally, I found this on; it linked out to a foreign website in Thai (according to Google Translate) so some of my renditions of text might be askew and grammatically sucky.

Here’s what their website had to say:

Cinemas VIP Medium 3 with the privacy and comfort of the audience, elegant luxury, with the ticket separately from the front entrance and lounge chairs are divided into three 3-style include:

Ultra Romance. (with curtains for The sweet and sweet is better)

Ultra Sweet. (nestling close for couples)

Ultra Paradise. (as if sitting on the beach), there is room for watching movies. This will enable you to relax with sofas, soft drinks and snacks.

Pretty good idea if you ask me. Amazing movies, 3D with great digital screens. Wonderful (and comfortable) seating arrangements. Snuggling with the wife while watching a flick? How much better could it get!? Oh, yeah, that’s right, they have waitstaff. So cool.

Things, But Very Slowly

I think it would be a blast to take the time and have the resources to explore the world we live in with great detail to discover those things that previously go unseen. Take, for instance, the Brainiac’s, “Things but very slowly” collection. Here’s a compilation of the types of things that would be fun to do:

Or, why not get into still-frame photography of high-speed items. Here are just a couple of cool examples:

Inspired Bicycles

Just a quick post about a fella and his bike. I came across this video while perusing a photographer’s newsletter, and he had the fortune to work with the guy on the bike (and his sponsor). First of all, I think it’s pretty cool that photography can carry me into different avenues of talent that I might not otherwise have the chance to experience. The same goes for AG of course – I was just listening to Dean talk last night about the fact that with his wealth and freedom of time, he has been able to work with several high talent groups some of which we’d be surprised at his affiliation (like Linkin Park, I believe).

At any rate, the other part of posting this video is just to highlight the amazing talent that we can hone if we work in our areas of strength and are willing to fail forward, and to try over and over again. Pretty amazing stuff.
