The birth of rapping, turntablism, breaking, graffiti….New York in the late 70s / early 80s was the creative melting pot that spawned the four elements of Hip Hop. There was another side though, one of poverty and violence…..the daily struggle of those living in the big apple during these time was not an easy one for many….this documentary looks like a stark reminder of the struggle that was daily life for New Yorkers in 1981, A Most Violent Year.
This brings back some happy memories of skating in the late eighties/early nineties. The tricks were so basic when you look back at stuff like this….good times though.
Thanks to Dave from Daves Wearhouse for pointing this out.
Admit it….you want to do the same.
Mini documentary exploring Anthony Vizzari love for cameras and photography in general.
When I first heard about the ‘Life In A Day’ project I was unsure how it would turn out. I honestly expected it to be a load of old toss, but having just watched it, I have to say I am VERY impressed. It makes compelling viewing and is funny, shocking, touching, thought provoking and in my opinion a must watch. Make sure you wont have any distractions for the full hour and a half, sit down and enjoy.
One thing I do like, is a really good animated short…and this sits up there with the best of them. From Fench studio Team Cerf . It’s the story of a young guy, no different from any other young guy (apart from the fact he’s got a deer head) and his lazy Sunday with his besotted girl friend, chilling at her house….that is, until her hunter father appears unexpectedly….enjoy (I know I did):
