The movie was off the hook, very inspirational story for sure. Tim was awesome and it’s great that his legacy still lives on today, go see this film if you haven’t already…It Rocks!
It’s simply impossible to keep track of Spike Jonze! Yesterday I was listening to a radio station, RadioPopolare, where they have this nice program named Alaska. I found out that he has eventually finished his new movie – out tomorrow in the U.S. and in few weeks in Italy – called WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, inspired by a popular children book and very, very promising! In the meantime Jonze has put up a new blog and made a documentary about the author of the book, Maurice Sendak. If you think this is not enough you should know that the MoMA is celebrating the director with an exhibition titled The First 80 Years. You can visit Alaska blog for more information… But how come we have Obama leading the planet instead of Spike Jonze?
Pete Koff’s documentary Supercharged, the life and times of Tim Brauch will start at Camera 12 in San Jose on September 26th (6:30)… it sounds like is getting big with a two day party, contest and big bands playing.

We are working to premiere here in Milano for late October… and looking for partners to cover all the expenses so that nobody has to pay any ticket. If you are interested show up now.
UnderSkatement makes it to Italy for the first time after being around America, Canada and Australia touching over 30 cities. Milan got chosen as the first city in Europe to host the festival, so Diana thought about the bastard office, which was originally a cinema theatre.
The event is hosted by SpaghettoChild, an association whose aim is the development of contemporary art and of the skateboarding culture and JANUARY 29TH.
The festival offers short films with a maximum lenght of 7 minutes. As long as the pieces are made by skateboards, there are no constrictions in topic or genre whatsoever. 18 short films are going to show throughout the night, result of a selection from previous editions. Among authors and players there are known names of the international skate scene such as Mark Gonzales with his “Cold Water”, Steve Salisan with the very original “Bugs”, Chris Johanson with “Encinitas Realization” and Trevor Prescott, Rubin Orkin and Curtis Hsiang, may they rest in peace.

I don’t get in touch often with rokma but when it happens he always has something interesting to share. Today he sent me the link to this documentary film that I didn’t know anything about, streamable and downloadable from the web:
Talks about Power and observe the world from a critical perspective… kicks asses but is a bit unclear about some of the sources.
If (obviously) we don’t have to take for truth what is shown on a television that maybe we do not even watch anymore… what about YouTube or Google Video? Is it a different kind?.
Si tratta di un documentario on the road che racconta lo stile di vita delle punk band all’inizio del movimento punk rock nei primi anni 80. Questo è uno dei primi tour internazionali tra Stati Uniti e Canada di Youth Brigade e Social Distortion nell’estate dell’82. Lungo la strada, incontreranno i Minor Threat che si uniranno a loro per una settimana. Gran bel documento che mi fa capire come sono cambiate le cose da allora…
