In this short documentary, Jamie Stuart show’s us Astoria’s most recent blizzard as seen through his lens. In only 5 days, this beautifully crafted short-film has received massive approval from both internet audience and film critics. One of those critics is world-famous Roger Ebert and he writes,

” “Idiot With A Camera” deserves to win the Academy Award for best live-action short subject.
(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent classic “Man With a Movie Camera.” (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency. It was filmed during the New York blizzard of Dec. 26, and Jamie Stuart e-mailed it to me with this time stamp: December 27, 2010 4:18:18 PM CST.

You can tell from the cinematography he knew exactly what he was doing and how to do it. He held the Vertov film in memory. Stuart must already been thinking of how he would do the edit and sound. Any professional will tell you the talent exhibited here is extraordinary.”

Skype Outage LA

On December 22nd 2010, millions of Skype users worldwide were left uncommunicated due to server malfunctions. Latest updates state that the popular internet-communication tool should be up and running in the next couple hours.

“I don’t use phones. So you can imagine my day”.

On top of that… The horrible weather that LA has been through in the last 10 days has been completely out of control. Holy Crap! I don’t remember the last time it was raining for so long at a single place. This is quite a record, at least for me. Ohh… and I read on the cover of The Los Angeles Times yesterday, “a rainstorm that could result in its (SoCal) wettest December on record.”. Lucky me… Yeah right.

Tell me how Skype’s Outage or the current rain in LA has made your day better or worse by writing a comment below.

Attention,

The real Santa Claus was spotted today by multiple witnesses at an El Pollo Loco location in West Hollywood, California. The world-known joyous and gift-giving entity was wearing what appeared to be vacation-wear. Will he be around on Christmas? Or will he stay “beachy” for the Holidays? Have you been good? Or bad?

Santa Claus to skip Christmas?

There were no signs of Rudolph on premises.
