What better way to prepare for Sunday’s 85th Annual Academy Awards than by seeing the 84 incarnations that have come before it? Nelson Carvajal compiled excerpts from every Best Picture winner, opening with William A. Wellman’s “Wings” in 1927 and ending with Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist” in 2012. Nothing like opening and closing with black & white movies. I think it perfectly illustrates… Read more →
I was so excited to move here to my new virtual home but like any move, it came with a few surprises and a lot frustrations. Like moving out of your first a studio apartment, I was happy over at my old site, but there wasn’t enough room from growth. The appliances I wanted weren’t there, like cool plugins and customizable… Read more →
Four years ago, I noticed an odd trend in the media coverage of Obama’s first Presidential Inauguration. As I sit in SFO and watch this year’s speech while waiting for my flight back to JFK, it’s nice to look back at this video, think of how cold I was editing it in my studio and how excited people were out… Read more →
In honor of their “Person of the Year”, TIME Mag created this supercut of Obama’s catch phrase, “let me make this clear.” Obama & Clinton’s simple approach to ‘splaining things have definitely worked in the Democrats favor this year.

Last night I watched Obama’s address to the community of Newtown with tears in my eyes. It was a truly moving speech and I could tell that he wrote it himself, without relying on Whitehouse staff. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama speeches in the wake of school shootings past and present are edited together to form… Read more →
My remix friend Diran Lyons created this remix in September, 2012. Then yesterday, I’m listening to a co-worker live-stream the Obama rally in Ohio and I hear Jay-Z anounce, “I changed this one up, I have to do it, I’m sorry. I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one. I didn’t get clearance from the Secret Service so if they… Read more →
Finally, a viral meme based on a woman who does her job really well, who’s able to express what we’re all thinking but not able to put into words. Lydia Callis, Mayor Bloomberg’s expressive interpreter during Hurricane Superstorm Sandy, broke through the media clutter and became a viral sensation last week. And not for her clothes. Or her looks. Or who… Read more →

The Google Glasses, called “Project Glass”, allows us to see through the eyes of potentially anyone. Take a look behind the scenes at last week’s Diane von Furstenberg’s S/S 2013 collection. Admittedly there’s a whole lot of footage in there that was not taken using the glasses but these tiny glasses DO have the potential to unlock a whole new world of creativity… Read more →
