Zero Tolerance 0707 Feature-Packed EDC Blade – Review

Zero Tolerance 0707 U.S.A. –-( It strikes me as a little funny that while most knife companies (or really, any manufacturer) name their products in addition to giving them SKUs, Zero Tolerance does not.  A catchy name is a good marketing tool, giving a memorable moniker to help a product stand out in a busy market.  I think that Zero Tolerance's proclivity towards numeric SKU's (such as today's 0707) gives them a little bit of a James Bond vibe.  Considering that ZT's market is ...

Sam Gagner On His Friend Joey Moss

from Sam Gagner at The Players' Triune, Joey Moss was the greatest person I have ever met. And while I’m not sure if what I’m about to write will do his legacy justice, I feel as though I have to try. After all, trying was exactly what Joey was about. Ask anyone who has been around that dressing room in Edmonton, or heard him sing the Canadian or U.S. national anthems, or seen him dance to “La Bamba.” He was as passionate as they come. I have countless stories and so many fond...

‘No Time to Die’ Motorcycle Stunt Sprayed Street with 8,400 Gallons of Coca-Cola, Presumably Shaken, Not Stirred

In fact, one particular No Time to Die stunt during the film’s production in Matera, Italy required a city street to be sprayed with 8,400 gallons of Coca-Cola, and it’s not even an egregious piece of production placement where James Bond crashes into a Coca-Cola truck.

James Bond Stoicism

One of the things that makes the James Bond books better than the James Bond films , is that while the latter mostly represent not-too-deep action-driven entertainment, the former are peppered with philosophical asides. Ian Fleming’s 007 has arguments with his nemeses on the nature of power and autonomy and discussions with colleagues as to how one can know if they’re really on the right side of things. Bond himself lives with a certain personal philosophy, one that mixes different elemen...

So it’s probably for the best to carve out some time and watch these before you have to fire up a different streaming service – or, worse, re-activate your Netflix by mail DVD plan – in order to see them.

How ‘Lupin III: The First’ Director Takashi Yamazaki Brought a Japanese Anime Icon into 3D [Interview]

Lupin the Third is a cultural institution in Japan, but you’d be hard pressed to find many American audiences who know it, apart from anime die-hards and maybe those who have dived deep into the filmography of Hayao Miyazaki. But the name can strike fear into the hearts of (fictional) police and affection in the hearts of many Japanese audiences, who have grown up with the long-running heist franchise centering around a charismatic master thief. Created by Monkey Punch in 1967, Arsène Lupin III...
