Some YouTube video tutorials on how to do the “vertigo effect.” The “dolly zoom” (physically dolly on the camera as you zoom out the lens) used by famous film director Alfred Hitchcock in “Vertigo,” Steven Spielberg on Roy Scheiders’ face in “JAWS” and many other films.
This is a documentary about “The Wrecking Crew.” I had heard of them, that it is THEM that is actually playing on PET SOUNDS and not the Beach Boys…. And I figured that EVERYONE knew that the Monkees were fakes ( fun fakes to be sure…) But I was surprised to learn how prevalent the fakery was everywhere in the music biz back then.
The word arangetram means “ascending the stage” ( in the Tamil language) by a dancer on the completion of several years formal dance training. “Arangu” is the Malayalam word for stage and Ettam is the word for “climbing”.
I went to the Smithsonian History Museum because I heard they had a comic book exhibit.
The Smithsonian is the gold standard of museums right? RIGHT?!?!?
They had the 1989 Batmobile, which is great of course, and two glass cases. One had the Linda Carter Wonder Woman Costume, Wolverines claws, a lunch box and other kitsch…. a costume of… the Puerto Rican Captain America!?!?!?!
And a second case of comic book and comic strip art of varying interest level….
I’ll save you the trip, this video and accompanying links are all you are going to see:
