NAKED LUNCH / 1991 / DAVID CRONENBERG
Filming the unfilmable … of course, you turn to Cronenberg.
"When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that."
29-story Skyscraper Lighting System Hacked to Play Tetris | Via
To celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of tetris, drexel university professor Frank Lee and his team hacked the lighting system of cira centre – a 29-story glass-encased skyscraper in philadelphia – to play the classic arcade game on the building’s facade. Using the north side and the south side of the tower, competitors played a version of the game, in which rows of blocks are added to the opponent’s screen when players eliminated them on their side. Joysticks were connected to a computer to transmit the data via a 4G network inside the cira centre. The signals translated the commands to the building’s external LED lighting system, which create images on the facade.
