– Two cherry tomatoes, halved
– Tomato ketchup
– Shitload of turmeric
1. Cook the steak, try not to fuck it up.
2. Let the fucker stand, make an omelette.
3. Flash fry the cherry tomato halves.
4. Serve it up, draw a ketchup tie.
5. Eat the bastard, hope for the best.
Latest holiday reading is Andy Weir’s THE MARTIAN. Rare that I read a book before I see the movie – rare that I read a book – but I’m made up that I got ahead of this.
Great to now revisit these early virals and see the universe of the film unpacking itself so precisely:
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Fox and Ridley Scott’s lot are killing it with ARES: live, riffing on the ubiquity of interstellar travel as YouTube fodder.
Their early work on PROMETHEUS was equally accomplished, using A-list talent and core story to create transmedia marketing of the highest order. (I didn’t love the final movie, but I was definitely fully prepped to.)
Now I find that the regular trailer just broke. If you plan to read THE MARTIAN, and you really should, maybe stow this for later. If, like me, you just put it down – for the first and last time – see what you make of this…
All these guys were marching in Paris yesterday. Guess they don’t need journalists, this stuff writes itself…
The discovered samples series continues, bringing me back to blog for the first time in SIX MONTHS. Poor show I know, but I have an inkling most of you have made do.
Here’s the best clip I could find from the film in question, giving you a taster of THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD’s riveting denouement before cutting rather abruptly into the scene we’re worried about.
And here, Transglobal Underground’s seminal ‘ethno-techno’ anthem Temple Head.
Love this, the concept and the execution.
