The summer of our discontent...?

#TPP #TTIP #economy #politics #trade  
“You need to tell me what’s wrong with this trade agreement, not one that was passed 25 years ago,” a frustrated President Barack Obama recently complained about criticisms of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). He’s right. The public criticisms of the TPP have been vague. That’s by design—anyone who has read the...

I repeat myself - these long-form, single-cam interviews are a treasure. This one, was even educational(!), hearing about the technical aspects. A true cinephile's paradise.

David does an amazing job in letting his interview partners "go off" and - prepared as he is - feeds them with stuff to talk about. It is a fabulous dance.

The opening scene of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, switching from documentary style footage and mono sound to the roaring Dolby Surround motor engine sound and colorful, spectacular camera work is one of those epic moments in cinema.

Williamsburg - the glutenfree vegan hipster center of the universe had some old farts from Manchester as guests. They dumped a Song No 2 on them! Woo hoo!

Russian Propaganda TV - think of their version of "Voice of America" - has 7 hours of raw Baltimore footage from April 28.

2 girls and a dude walking the streets, capturing live sounds, ordinary people, the visible poverty of certain corners, like David Simon's The Wire was shot there only yesterday. Street gatherings, protests, Michael Jackson dancing ...

And the video feed, captured from the RT TV stream, ends with live Kazakhstan State TV of the official ceremony of the inauguration of new (and old and forever) President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev. It's like the Soviet Union never ended.

I found this by accident, searching for long-form Baltimore uploads. This combination is as bizarre as it is ... something to think about? On top, that Russian TV footage is on their German(?!) channel website. Who said the "Cold War" ended?
