This is how Michael Caine speaks

I saw Dark Knight Rises yesterday.

This is not a spoiler, so long as you've heard Michael Caine speak before.  VERY LOUD INDEED

US Olympic Swimming Team

Doing "Call Me Maybe."  This really reminds me of my college volleyball days.  In a good way.  If you can imagine that.  This post might get deleted shortly.

Derek Redmond

Another Barcelona '92 Olympics memory.

English track star Derek Redmond pulled up lame with a torn hamstring halfway through the 400 semis.  His dad ran out onto the track, and together, IN TEARS, they limped to the finish line.  I might have cried a little bit when I watched it and told my mom there was something stuck in my eye.

Here's a Visa commercial commemorating the moment.  I think they took the voiceover from Shawshank Redemption.  

And here's a user-created montage tribute to the race.  That's right - set to Coldplay.  If you think this is lame, you have no soul.

While the Olympic motto is Citius, Altius, Fortius - "Faster, Higher, Stronger" - the Olympic creed reads "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

guh. I love the Olympics.

Greatest Olympic Cauldron Lighting Ever

Antonio Rebollo, a Paralympic archer who was stricken with polio when he was eight months old shoots a burning arrow 181 feet and seven stories high perfectly into the cauldron to start the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.  via

The greatest risk is not taking one

Chris' sent me this TV spot in a response to the ISS montage below.

Sure, it's AIG, which would make the tagline comical - if it weren't tragic.  But it's a great spot.  The copy is taken from TS Elliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock".

Frame grab from Kevin Flynn's seminal interview with Connor and Madeleine Flynn about their favorite thing about grandpa.

View from ISS

This doesn't suck.  Photography taken from the ISS, set to a cue from John Murphy's epic Sunshine soundtrack.  Best played loud and full screen.

happy friday

In the Brussels airport, you're welcome to charge your electronics for free, but you've got to make the electricity yourself.  If I ever have kids, the TV is getting hooked up to this shit.

Puss In Boots "Leche"

Just uploaded an event spot I did for DreamWorks' Puss In Boots.  I know you were interested.

I think the slurping sound effect might be Art.

Obama with Teams USA

Obama with the men's and women's Olympic basketball teams.  This is darn good campaigning if you ask me, Team Obama.

Kiss Cam

I've managed to get myself on Staple Center's and Dodger Stadium's jumbotrons a few times as a rabid, often dancing fan.  But the Kiss Cam is my Holy Grail.

One day.  One. Day.
