Here’s a couple of things I came across recently.
- <a href=”http://nofilmschool.com/2014/08/francois-truffaut-interview-alfred-hitchcock/?utm_campaign=twitter”>12 hours of Hitchcock interviews</a>. I listened to the whole thing. All considered, he was a pretty modern dude. Born in 1899, and 63yo when he did this interview – which was over 50 years ago, he still sounds very modern considering. He talks about the actors like they were chess pieces, but I imagine most directors are like that. Another good thing about it is he names names. If someone was disappointing Hitchcock says so. I guess because of litigation you don’t here that kind of thing much these days.
- <a href=”https://www.flickr.com/photos/sunnybreaks/14902794690″ title=”cat-sight by Hi! my name is:, on Flickr”><img id=”floatMe” src=”https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3925/14902794690_2edb09e63d_o.png” width=”163″ height=”333″ alt=”cat-sight”></a> This is a small sample from <a href=”http://www.businessinsider.com.au/pictures-of-how-cats-see-the-world-2013-10″>here</a>. It is supposedly showing what cat vision is like. The top image is human sight – it is blurry because it in the periphery. So, cats have a slightly wider arc of sight but colours are a bit weird, everything’s a bit fuzzy and they can’t see as far as us. I was kind of surprised. Yes they can see better in the dark but I thought they had super-duper vision in all areas. I’d feel kind of ripped off if that’s all I could see.
- In the car I’ve been listening to a radio station called ‘Hot Country’. It’s contemporary, commercially-oriented country music. It’s a whole ‘nother world.
