Press Pause Play

We exist in an ever changing media landscape, with the onset of the digital era some would say we are in the midst of one of the most exciting technical revolutions known to man. However there are those who would argue that this particular revolution has been detrimental to the quality of output especially within the creative industries. Personally I feel that we should embrace change and adapt accordingly, I mean without the digital revolution amongst other things this blog wouldn’t exist (some might say that would be a good thing) and I wouldn’t be able to share my ramblings with the world. Press Pause Play, a documentary released last year, offers opinions and educated arguments from prominent figures for both sides. If you haven’t seen it yet I’d suggest you give it a watch. Whatever your viewpoints on the subject are this film will at best make you question your stance or at worst offer up food for thought and provide material to lengthen the debate. You can stream it for free on Vimeo by following the link below or download it from their website http://www.presspauseplay.com/ Enjoy!

Best of the Web: The Best Tractor Fight Ever

Bookmark Best of the Web: The Best Tractor Fight Ever

Well it’s probably the only tractor fight you’ll see in a feature film still that doesn’t mean that it can’t be considered a classic.

Once film makers get a load of the acrobatics that can be achieved with a mere tractor then perhaps there will be more dare devil tractorbatics in future films.

In true Bollywood style this takes the improbable and makes it entertainingly improbable stretching creativity to the nth degree and for that we salute not just this clip from the film Alluda Majaka but Bollywood as a whole.

Twilight Star Robert Patterson had Rap Dreams

Bookmark Twilight Star Robert Patterson had Rap Dreams

Rappers come in all shapes and sizes it really doesn’t matter so long as you can lace some lyrics together with substance and flow, though even that has gone somewhat by the wayside in recent times so the idea of Robert Patterson rapping isn’t that far-fetched.

Recently the Twilight star revealed, in an interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey, that had he not become a successful actor he would have tried his hand at rapping.

The star who was joined on Oprah’s show by fellow Twilight stars Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart said “I used to want to be a rapper when I was, like, 14, I grew up watching American movies and stuff.”

Considering the success he’s achieved on the big screen acting was probably the better career choice.
