This is one of my top 5 favorite movies. It’s one of those kid befriends an alien, alien gets hunted by the government, cue chase scene, then cue crying as the alien either leaves or dies heroically. It’s set in the late 50s which both provides a lot of fun kitsch and an ominous vein of Cold War paranoia that threads itself throughout.
This film is directed by Brad Bird who later went on to direct The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and is directing the upcoming Mission Impossible 4.
Executive produced by Pete Townshend of The Who
Vin Diesel is the voice of the giant.
This is still the best thing that Vin Diesel has ever done
I was a little lukewarm on the story, but visually it was stunning. Not surprisingly for a Wes Anderson film, the design and art direction were amazing. That scene at the end with the jaguar shark scored with the Sigur Ros song is just gorgeous. I also loved all of those Portugese covers of David Bowie songs.
Here’s a set of some of my favorite designs from The Poster List. Their whole breakfast series especially makes me happy. Ran into their booth at the Sunset Junction street fair a little while back. They’re a neat little print shop based in LA and they do super cool work. They’ve also started printing shirts now and I definitely might have to check some of those out.
Totally recommend them if your walls are looking a bit bare.
WHY THE FUCK HASN’T THIS HAPPENED YET??? This is possibly the best executed rebrand I have ever seen and I am simply awestruck by it. I can hardly contain myself!! It is designed by Matt Chase and you can find his description of the US Postal Service rebrand here.
Making the Postal Service sexy again (never was the same after Ben Franklin ended his run as postmaster general).
toasted ciabatta roll lemonaise (mayo) kimchi fried egg over easy
TIP: Sauté the kimchi in some butter briefly to warm it up and reduce the liquid. This sandwich is very tangy, do not make it if you’re on the fence about kimchi! I loved it, and may add some melted cheese next time! (I also think regular mayo may work better than lemonaise!)
Kali Eats is a blog that combines art and food; two things that I love and enjoy. The art reminds me of What to Cook and How to Cook It (aka a cookbook that I don’t own but really should because it’s pretty). Mmm.
