Bond. Nude bond.

Daniel Craig said that he's willing to pose nude in his first Bond flick (yechh). Dude! You're ugly and no one wants to see YOU nude.

We want to see the Bond GIRLS!

Ursula, Oh Ursula. Trying to find THAT iconic shot of Andress coming out of the water, the one that Halle paid homage to in Die Another Day, but not finding it. you'll have to watch her her clips from Dr. No.

Halle as Jinx

I love that Dame Judy was "M" and John Cleese was "Q". That was actually a rather fun Bond flick, now that I think of it. Pierce Brosnan was such a great Bond, he was very handsome and could be quite filippant and foppish as well as being a killer, though Connery is still the best. He was more of a stone cold killer and his pork pie hat never came off when he was fighting.

Of course we can't forget the Bond cars. My fave is still the DB5, though the Vanquish is growing on me. Some people near me used to have a silver DB6 in their driveway and it would drive me crazy because it was just sitting there. I went up and rang the bell once and the woman there told me that the car was not for sale. It had been in an accident where the undercarriage had been ripped out. Her husband was going to have it fixed. It sat there for years. I don't know what happened to it. I think it died a sad, rusty death, under a tarp. For a long time I thought that Bond drove a DB6 in Goldfinger. I like the 6 more than the 5.

Yeah, the Vanquish totally kicks ass. Especially the rocket launchers. It goes without saying that Bond drives a fine British motorcar.

So far, the only good thing about Casino Royale is Eva Green. Ouch! Teh Hott!

Hi y'all, running errands today.

I'll try and post some photos later today. I'm also investigating online albums. Flickr has been suggested, but since I use Photobucket, I'll see if their albums are easy to use. I also want people to be able to see larger versions of what I post here.

Here is some poetry at to keep you occupied.

UPDATE: Wrong url was posted, so here is the correct address for soem nice poetry

Sony's CineAlta family has two new XDCAM cameras out, the PDW-F330 and the PDW- F350. The link at the bottom of the page is busted. Are the cameras busted too?

Side view of the PDW-F330, looks cool, I like the two tone plastic.

3/4 front view of the PDW-F350 Variable frame rate camcorder.

PDF page for the F350 variable frame rate camcorder. It has a 1/2 inch SuperHAD chips with 1.5Mpixel resolution, rather than 2/3 inch chips and will do 1-60FPS. 60i/50i, 24P,25P,30P capture, 4 channels of uncompressed 16bit/48kHz audio, 60 minutes of recording time @ 35Mbps on an XDCAM Professional Disc (<$30MSRP), SD/HD switchable, time lapse, etc.

Other links: Creative News

Do searches for PDW-F330 and PDW-F350 and you'll have plenty to look at, also there are a couple of other XDCAM cameras that are std def.

It's early and I have to head out for a gig, but that's all for now. -M

It's 9:05pm and I'm eating Golden Time flute wafers, listening to Boards of Canada and procrastinating. I'm supposed to be cleaning my apartment.
UPDATE - I've added photos this morning!


Today (Monday), I helped Joel and Erica, friends of Mat move into their new aparment in Brooklyn. A lot of lifting and walking up stairs, but nothing seriously strenuous. Then we had yummy Malaysian food for lunch. Since Mat is Isadora's Godfather, he kept her occupied, while the rest of us unloaded the UHaul truck and walked everything up to the third floor. I can't think of any Godfather jokes at the moment.




I'm too Goddam lazy to photoshop the pix and post them. I'll do it tomorrow. Yes that sounds like a fine idea.
