An 18-Hour Playlist of Readings by the Beats: Kerouac, Ginsberg & Even Bukowski Too

An 18-Hour Playlist of Readings by the Beats: Kerouac, Ginsberg & Even Bukowski Too | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
Plenty of us get tuned in to the Beats through print — maybe a yellowed copy of Howl, a mass-market Naked Lunch, a fifth- or sixth-hand On the Road — but sometimes the verse or prose that so thrills us on those pages fairly demands to be spoken aloud, preferably by the Beat in question.

Take A Look At The Beautiful Mechanical Innards Of An R/C R2-D2 | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
What goes into making R2-D2? In the Star Wars universe, it’s a bunch of fictional technological bits and bobs. In ours, it’s usually a bit of electronics and Kenny Baker. But if you’re making an R/C R2? it takes a hell of a lot of technical wizardry, as this video about the R2-D2 Builders Club shows.

Um Dia fui ao Cinema: As 10 cenas mais difíceis de filmar | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
Vamos ao cinema para ficarmos maravilhados pelo que vemos; mas poucos são aqueles que ao verem uma cena espectacular dão por si a pensar: mas como é que eles filmaram isto?

Mesmo com toda a ajuda dos computadores e efeitos digitais, muitos filmes continuam a recorrer a cenas filmadas que desafiam a nossa imaginação, e que são dignas de serem relembradas e revistas sempre que possível.

You know what happens in a real earthquake? A pause. And then slight confusion. And then frantically trying to remember what elementary school taught you on where you should go. And then panic because you don’t remember. You know what happens when you film an earthquake disaster movie such as San Andreas? Comedy.

Num mundo acelerado, marcado pela exaltação do efémero e do fait divers, a questão da preservação da memória cinematográfica é mais actual do que nunca.
