Manualist Videos

What the heck is a manualist you say? Someone who's really good at making fart noises with their hands. And, um... Singing? See for yourself!

Brian May on his personal website said this about this first video...

I gotta say ........ this is one of the greatest videos I have ever seen ... the guy is brilliant ... I hope he gets to know that his superb work gets the BM.com unofficial highest quality award of the year!

One Crazy Wedding Invite

WOW. Now THIS is telling a story. I don't know how that was all printed and folded up and mailed, but man, cool idea and execution! Our invitation wasn't that near that crazy, but I love its simplicity and elegance. Props to my future bro-in-law, Gary!

CEOs = Storytellers

I really enjoyed this article that explains the bigger role that a CEO has to play besides just running the company. They are the face. The mouth. The story.

Movie Trailers Galore!

There are lots of new movie trailers to share, so I'm throwing 'em altogether in one post. Any you're looking forward to of these or otherwise?

The Last Airbender (M. Night Shyamalan's newest)

500 Days of Summer (really looking forward to this)

It Might Get Loud (heck yeah!!!)

The Cove (interesting...)

2012 (this could suck major, but the effects look intense!)

Curse You, Internet Explorer.

So right after I'm complaining to Summer about how I think Internet Explorer is what people have been using to access TheFutureAndersens.com when they have trouble navigating the site, I see this! Perfect cartoon. Dash Internet Explorer. Dash it to pieces. Long live Safari!

Mickey Rourke = Iron Man Villain, Whiplash

LOS ANGELES - Mickey Rourke's bruising opponents in "The Wrestler" don't look so tough compared to his new foe: Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man.

Distributor Paramount has released the first photo of Rourke as villain Whiplash in the upcoming sequel, "Iron Man 2."

Rourke is dressed for battle in the image, his torso and arms wrapped in metal braces sporting weapons and a chest device resembling the portable power plant that runs Downey's Iron Man suit.

While Downey is completely encased in his metal suit, Rourke's Whiplash outfit shows off a lot of flesh, along with plenty of tattoos coating the character's skin.

Directed by Jon Favreau, "Iron Man 2" kicks off Hollywood's 2010 summer season next May 7.

Start A Movement!

This is pretty stinking hilarious!! Carlos Whittaker posted this video along with the 7 Keys to Starting A Movement below.

1. One man can start a movement.

2. A movement need not be started by the most skilled member of the movement.

3. When beginning your movement and you look around and no one else is joining the dance, just keep dancing.

4. When the one guy who joins your movement slowly fades away, keep going.

5. Before you know it, the people joining your movement won’t even know you started it.

6. When your movement takes a life of it’s own, just let go. There will be no stopping it.

7. The very people who are staring at you like your nuts as you movement alone, will be the very same people dancing the hardest in the end.

iPhone app :: Darkroom

This is one of my favorite little apps that sits right on my front home screen. It doesn't take a picture until the camera is completely still and it has a little timer (which you can customize) that regulates how still you have to be. I have the premium version which allows you to touch anywhere on the screen to snap a photo which I love a lot, and hope Apple incorporates into the 3.0 software.

Darkroom Premium ($0.99)

iPhone app :: Super Search

This is a pretty handy little app that lists a bunch of different popular websites like IMDB, RottenTomatoes, Amazon, Wikipedia, etc. and enables you to search inside the app rather than have to pull up Safari and find the search box and zoom in on it and then search. It makes life easier and I've enjoyed it quite a bit.

iPhone apps: Game Edition

No, there's not an app called Game Edition. This post is dedicated to the few games that I love having on my iPhone. I decided to go green and combine them into one post. Wait. No trees are being killed by me blogging. This is digital. Oh well. It saves you some scrolling time.

Pixar's "UP" + Technology

I would love to sit in on a Pixar movie from start to finish and just gaze in awe and wonder. Especially the technology that goes into it. This explains the amazing technology that they had to use for UP.

Scorsese + Sinatra

Boy, this is exciting! I'm dying to see this and see who gets cast in it. I did a quick Google search and saw Johnny Depp's and Leonardo DiCaprio's name. I'd vote the latter, for sure. But we shall see!
