Indie Ferris Bueller

By | clever, video | 8 Comments

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was the ultimate coming-of-age movie for us Gen-Xers. It portrayed rebellion, soul-searching and fear of the future in a witty, charming and slapsticky package. And it even had Charlie Sheen winning way before Charlie Sheen was winning. If it came out today, instead of 1986, how would it fare against the sea of sensitive, coming-of-age, navel-gazing movies? This fantastic “new” trailer, recut by UK filmmaker Joseph Brett, makes me think it would do just fine.

Here’s the YouTube link if you can’t see the video below.

(Thanks Holiday Matinee!)

This is awesome. And just one of the oh-so-many reasons I have always loved Apple and always will. Watch the two videos one after the other.

Don’t you especially love the assertion at the end of the Newton spot that “if there’s anything this world could use, it is more communication.” Hoo boy!

(Thanks SMCLT)

Found this at kottke.org the other day. Amazing acceptance speech from Wes Anderson, made in stop motion animation.

Not only cool, but also appropriate: he was accepting the Special Filmmaking Achievement Award from the National Board of Review. Special filmmaking indeed.

And I love the rabbit half offscreen. With her stripes and her neckerchief.

The brilliant and beautiful Katherine Center has done it again. This time in the form of a video addressing the statement Mom 2.0: Defining a Movement.

I can’t wait to see Katherine in Houston next month at the Mom 2.0 Summit. I feel like time spent with her, regardless of what we’re doing, is quality time. Do you know people like that? I’m lucky to.

Speaking of Mom 2.0 Summit, have you registered yet? Please do. I promise you won’t regret it.

Where else is Laurie?
