Promo for Little Rock Horror Picture Show

Last night thanks to the Central Arkansas Library System's Butler Center (inside the Arkansas Studies Institute) the Little Rock Film Festival held a Purchase Your Pass Reception and Secret Film Screening for the Little Rock Horror Picture Show (February 17-19 at Market Street Cinema). Before the film screening two promos for the festival premiered, and we're going to show you the one directed by Levi Agee. Check it out below!


Neil Osam also directed a promo that premiered tonight. Someone we know acted in it.

Look, Ma! No Heel!

Take a peek at the kicks below and you may do a double take. Yes, they are missing something. They're missing something that most would consider essential. However, that didn't stop McQueen and Gaultier (among others) from sending these heelless wonders down the runway in recent seasons. And it seems the idea has trickled down to us regular, non-couture sporting folks thanks to Jeffrey Campbell and Guiseppe Zanotti (again, among others). Below is a preview, though I imagine we'll start to see more and more of these in the not-so-distant future!

Has anyone tried these yet? I'd love to hear a first hand experience of what it's like walking in them!

Tinker, Tailer, Soldier... Skirt

Jacket- BCBGMaxAzria (similar HERE), Dress as Skirt (similar HERE), Tee- Target, Boots- Antonio Melani (Similar HERE),  Necklace- Angel Court Jewels and unknown, Bracelets- JewelMint and unknown
Now that Oscar nominations are out {and we realized just how much catching up we had to do}, our weekends are pretty much set until February 26th. We started on Saturday with Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy so we could see if Justin's man-crush {Gary Oldman} really earned that nomination. Next on the list are The Artist and My Week With Marilyn.

Inspired by the skullduggery that Tinker Tailer deals with,  I decided to impose a little duplicity myself and sport a maxi dress as a skirt. I think it's my first step to becoming a double agent.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

There is a mole in the very highest echelon of British intelligence.  Tonight we went to see Gary Oldman in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.  The film, a Cold War espionage thriller set in 1973 mostly in Great Britain, sets a slow yet deliberate pace with sometimes confusing effects.  Oldman was nominated for an Oscar for his performance this week, and is much deserved.

The film is beautifully shot, and the performances are spot on.  We even get an opportunity to see Tom Hardy act across from Oldman in a slight preview of what's surely to come this summer in the Dark Knight Rises.  The film opens up with a quick trip to Hungary to attempt to extract a Hungarian general with knowledge of who the mole is, and everything goes terribly wrong.  Oldman's character George Smiley has recently retired from British intelligence and for this reason is tapped by the powers that be to discover just who is working for the Soviets.

The nice thing with all the mystery and intrigue you truly don't know who the Mole is until the end of the film.  There are also some surprisingly gory moments scattered through out the film, but the film itself isn't overly violent.  This isn't a James Bond or Mission Impossible film with crazy acrobatic stunts and attention gaining explosions, the spying is done the good old fashioned way with wire taps and investigation.

All in all if you can't catch this film in the theater it's definitely worth it to catch it on dvd.  With Oldman's nomination it might get an extended period in the theater, but if not watch it in your home.  It might even be worth it to watch it twice to make sense of all the confusion.

Yosemite Time-lapse

Last year we brought you a time-lapse video of cities across the continent.  The video featured music from Inception which definitely added to the cool factor.  Today we're bringing you a video of time-lapse from Yosemite National Park featuring the music of M83.  It's stunning!
