Taking a Quick Break

I only watched one movie today, and it was so boring I didn't even finish it (sorry 'Life Aquatic' fans, it's just not that good of a film).

So I'm taking a break to show you this little video clip masterpiece. In response to the Radiohead contest of remixing one of their latest singles, 'Nude,' one of the contestants made this video. Be sure to watch the whole thing, it takes a while to really get going.


Big Ideas (don't get any) from James Houston on Vimeo.

According to the creator, he only 'grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they're trying their best to do something that they're not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.'

Each part of the song is performed by the following hardware:

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer - Drums
HP Scanjet 3c - Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array - Act as a collection of bad speakers - Vocals & FX

I feel so uncreative and boring after watching something like this.

Tomorrow I'm going to Salt Lake to watch Sergei Bodrov's new film, 'Mongol.' Review to follow.

You left a comment on my blog. My blog is about my time in Dubai. I f you are wanting to come for vaction you can see everything in a couple of days. If you like malls then you will love this place. I see you like movies and there are alot on cinemas here. The weather right now is hot. I don't know abou the winter but I hear it is quite nice. The Bur Dubai and Deira areas are cool to walk and listen. I am an engneer her for work so I am not here on vacation. I would rate it as a 7 for place to visit. Wait about 2 or 3 years and there sould be more cool stuff going on.
