My friend Jason is down from Portland this weekend so we headed over to LACMA to check out the new Kubrick retrospective. Highly recommend! Seeing the show was a humbling reminder of exactly how many "films of a lifetime" this man made. Path's of Glory, Spartacus, 2001: Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, Eye's wide shut....seriously? Some amazing trinkets from each of those films were on display. It was surprising how powerful it was to see them in the flesh...so to speak. Make the time to check it out, you won't be sorry!
Awesome, functioning centrifuge model from 2001
and of course, A Clockwork Orange!
Actually it's just dumb luck that we caught these stunning vintage beasts in Siena on the day we happened to visit. Gorgeous early century European race cars ripping around a stunning Medieval Italian city! Can't ask for much more than that. The event is called the Gran Premio Nuvolari. Lot's of great videos on the interwebs if you want more. Get to googlin'!
I'm just back from my cousin Ninaz's wedding outside of Cologne, Germany. It was a beautiful affair and it was great to catch up with the German family. Coincidentally we were only 11 Km from Peter Zumthor's Brother Klaus Chapel. Em and I headed out with my cousins Alireza and Aschkan to check it out. The texture you see inside the chapel walls are the negative volumes of 112 burned away trees. You can read more about it here
