something sweet: a nightdrive to synthpop

"Cars can have a hypnotic effect. You can get in a car and get out and not really remember the trip. When you drive, you can kind of put your identity aside in the passenger’s seat, because you’re not being watched, and you can just be the watcher." —Ryan Gosling, on Drive

So I’ve received over the past several months many people asking me about broadening their interest in film. I usually just send my mubi profile to them or something but instead I thought I’d give resources and some tips to watching international cinema.

Resources For Finding Films

Resources to Watching Films
  • YOUTUBE - I can’t stress this enough. Many wonderful people on youtube are kind enough to take the time & upload films that are  not easy to find. 
  • kat.ph - a nifty torrent site with a lot of good films on available that have seeding (give or take).
  • Facets Film Portal: Again promoting Facets but they’re just so good. They have a link to finding free films online as well as a DVD rental service like netflix.
  • Netflix Instant - seriously just go through their ‘foreign film’ section and you’ll find so many gems lurking in there.
  • hulu+ (US) - Mainly for the Criterion Collection section but what’s great is that they also stream films that are not on DVD yet and have not even been announced.
  • fandor (US) - Another streaming site that’s geared to film fans.
  • Internet Archive -  free films that are in the public domain
  • Subtitles - best to search via search engine but you’ll likely rely on Open Subtitles

10 Breathtaking Satellite Photos That Will Change How You See Our World - dailyoverview

Daily Overview is a new project that shares one satellite photo from Digital Globes a day in an attempt to change the way we see our planet Earth.
The project was inspired by the Overview Effect experience, which is a cognitive shift of perspective and worldview experienced by the astronauts when they get to see the planet Earth from space for the first time.
