The Bridge

...people suffer largely unnoticed while the rest of the world goes about its business. This is a documentary exploration of the mythic beauty....

Filmaker Eric Steel tricked the Golden Gate Bridge committee into allowing him to film the bridge for a period of a year to: "to capture the powerful, spectacular intersection of monument and nature that takes place every day at the Golden Gate Bridge"

His main purpose was to visually capture the numerous suicides that take place at the bridge every year, this is his film.

Games of the XXIX Olympiad


Why is there suddenly smog inside my apartment? Anyway the opening ceremonies on a 86 hour delay will be broadcast tonight at 7:30, NBC added an half hour, because apparently they were so knocked out by the rehearsals they wanted to cover it all. The closing ceremoies will be Sunday the 24th. I will be donning the official one piece, full body, Team USA cycling leotard for the 2 plus weeks. Some Olympics Blogs of note:
