French May and more

Like every May it's the French May in HK.

This year some of the artists will sing in English.

It seems there is more and more French singers who feels English is a good way to reach a wider audience.

I let you listen to some of their songs.

I really like the first one (AARON with their album Artificial Animals Riding On Neverland (get it ?)) )

Pulitzer and photo-journalism

Everybody remember the Burma crackdown few month ago.

Last week Pulitzer price were awarded and specially one that refer to the death of this Japanese journalist (Kenji Nagai) to Adrees Latif.

I always thought that photo-journalism was one of the hardest way to inform people. Even with new technologies you have to be there, not 200m away. You have to be near the action. It's not like TV where you have the sound to carry some informations (don't get me wrong here, I just think it's 2 diferent thing but...Read more

The first one is about micro-blogging. It's not really new but more and more site and usage are found.

Too bad, it's not released in HK

Ok, I'm an all time lover of Michel Gondry work.

TV commercial, video clip (Bjork) and movie director (Eternal sunshine of a spotlessmind).

I just stumble upon on the trailer of his last movie: "Be kind rewind". It's has been release in US last moth and it will probably not be release in HK but I will buy the DVD online.

The trailer is so funny and Jack Black is really a master in this kind of films.

There is also Danny Glover (2 weeks ago I just re-watch all Lethal Weapon...Read more

Appleseed Ex-Machina

I just watched Appleseed ex-Machina.

I remember the first appleseed great story but the graphics was  ok not better.

But for ex-machina I was really blown away.

Sometimes it really look like a real movie.

The gestures, textures, physics, emotions, ... everything is there.

If you got a chance to watch, it really worth it if you like SF.

Drinking and uploading pictures

Ok my bad.

Never drink, get back home, upload your picture and tag them while your watching 28 days later.

My apologies to Daniel Wu and Chris Kong.

Thanks Etchy for fixing my mess.
