David Bowie Is…

This is really big news if your a David Bowie fanatic and Chris Hess of Hess Design Solutions is just that. The V&A Museum has been granted access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the career of David Bowie. David Bowie remains one of the most pioneering and influential performers of our time. The exhibit contains more than three hundred objects, including handwritten lyrics, costumes, photos, set designs, album artwork, and rare performance material from over five decades all brought together from the David Bowie Archive for the first time.

Time-lapsed Airplanes Landing!

We found this story on Designboom and we could not resist reposting it. American film professor and photographer Cy Kuckenbaker has captured every airplane that landed at san diego international airport a week ago between the hours of 10:30am and 3pm in a time-lapse video. the concept was born from an image by ho-yeol ryu at hannover airport – showing a herd of the massive machines in one visualization and Kuckenbaker wanted to capture the unusual flight path that brings planes very low right over the center of the city of san diego, causing them to drop behind a hill the make the runway. to create the video he would shoot the planes on a cloudless day individually then isolate the image of the plane and composite each one together in a timeline with adobe premier.

Shaken, not stirred.

As I recently exited a Metro station in Paris and I saw in front of me a door sized LED bilboard in front of me, there stood Javier Bardem with bleached blond hair, he slowly turned and stared at me (goosebumps).

Sold.

“Bond, James Bond.” I don’t know, it’s probably just the kid in me but I think those three words were some of the coolest ever captured on the silver screen. And Sean Connery, what’s not to like about that charming man’s man? The coolest secret agent ever conceived. Bond plays it cool, calm and collected always managing to thrill and entertaining. Never forgetting the gorgeous women; James Bond spends almost all his precious free time to get intimate with some of the most beautiful women in the world. Yes, I am excited to see the new 007 movie but even more excited about the release of a new book title “The James Bond Archives” by EON Archives and edited by Paul Duncan.
