The Life & Death of an Espresso Shot in Super Slow Motion

Some YouTuber posted online a pretty nice clip of an espresso shot being pulled from a La Marzocco FB80 espresso machine at 120 frames per second. They recommend muting the sound, then putting on your own music. I gave it a quick shot with the famous soundtrack for Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. And I’ll be damned, it syncs up pretty well. Have a better soundtrack to recommend? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below. Would you like to support the mission of...

The surprisingly conventional sequel to Kubrick's masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey

I don't know if I agree that 2010: The Year We Make Contact is a forgotten sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey. It did well at the box office upon its release and received largely positive reviews. It had a stellar cast, including Roy Scheider, Helen Mirren, and John Lithgow, and was nominated for 5 Academy Awards. — Read the rest

‘Lunatic at Large’: Unmade Stanley Kubrick Film Aims to Go Into Production This Year

Last year, filmmaker Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Time Bandits, 12 Monkeys) said he was supposed to begin filming a movie based on an unmade Stanley Kubrick film – but the coronavirus pandemic caused the whole thing to fall apart. A report at the time indicated that the mysterious project was Lunatic at Large, a 70-page treatment based on a Kubrick idea that Kubrick’s then-producing partner James B. Harris commissioned from acclaimed crime writer Jim Thompson in the 1950s. Now two different producers...

Whatever Became Of Shelley Duvall? This.

A sting of Robert Altman films in the 1970s made her into a major movie star with a Best Actress win at Cannes. Then came Kubrick’s The Shining, a physically and emotionally grueling film shoot leading to a performance that strikes viewers as either brilliant or grotesque. She spent the ’80s and early ’90s producing children’s television with marquee Hollywood actors. Then she up and disappeared — until 2016, when the Dr. Phil show found her in Texas and aired a disastrous interview. Writer Set...

Listen to the Never-Heard Song Written for Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey Hollywood film scores have become blandly formulaic, thanks to filmmakers’ over-reliance on the same kinds of “temp music” during the editing process, a practice that can lead to a boilerplate approach at the scoring stage. But the use of temporary music is nothing new. Stanley Kubrick left the temp score for 2001: A Space Odyssey as the film’s official soundtrack, opting for Richard Strauss’s Also Sprach Zarathustra for the iconic opening sequ...

‘Akudama Drive’ is the Cyberpunk Suicide Squad Anime You Never Knew You Wanted

It’s been nearly four decades since the cyberpunk genre began to take shape, and it’s been sadly strip-mined of its urgency and turned into a retro aesthetic that is served to audiences by the same multi-billion-dollar corporations that the genre was built to criticize. Sure, the neon lights shining in the rain, and the urban futurism still looks cool, but there’s rarely anything new or of value being said in most modern cyberpunk stories. So it is a genuine pleasure to see Akudama Drive l...

Japanese Art Installation Lets People Play Erik Satie’s “Gymnopédie No. 1” As They Walk on Socially-Distanced Notes on the Floor

The global pandemic has revealed the depths of systematic cruelty in certain places in the world that have refused to commit resources to protecting people from the virus or refused to even acknowledge its existence. Other responses show a different way forward, one in which everyone contributes meaningfully through the principled actions of wearing masks and social distancing or the principled non-action of staying home to slow the spread. Then there’s the critical role of art, design, and mus...

Resurrecting an old Kindle Keyboad

So, I've just dug out my old Kindle Keyboard 3g+wifi uk edition. It's still on 3.0.3 firmware. I'd jailbroken it and installed USBNetwork.. and I don't think much else.. maybe a screensaver hack? maybe something to stop it auto updating? (I had a ENABLE_HACK_UPDATES file on the device). I installed the hacks some time in 2011. I tried installing the 3.1 firmware update, but the checksum for ServerConfig.conf fails.
