Photos of every corner in Manhattan

The Manhattan Street Corners is my working title for a project to produce a comprehensive photographic portrait of everyday life at street level in daytime Manhattan. Between March and November, 2006, I systematically photographed each and every one of the island’s roughly 11,000 street corners (the exact number is a matter of definition and, in some ambiguous instances, even a matter of judgment).

This is how you look when playing videogames

There's a video called "Immersion" of people who were filmed while playing video games. Funny faces, big emotions, empty stares, it's all there.

Unemployed? - Entertain the Japanese!

American YouTube manga girl making waves in Japan

Magibon is an American You Tube idol taking her obsession with Japan to the extreme. The Florida-born 22-year old who used to be a supermarket cashier now spends a bulk of her time making YouTube videos of herself staring blankly into the camera, babbling elementary Japanese, and striking cutesy poses. Her popularity in Japan catapulted when Japanese online publication JCast wrote an article about her in January of this year. In April, a Japanese broadcasting company called Gyao invited her to be a guest on one of their shows. Here's one of her famous stare-down videos.

Movies I saw recently:

Max Payne
Better than I thought. I was expecting another bad game-conversion, but this one was not bad at all.

Body of lies
Liked it, good political thriller.

A lot like Snatch, loved it.

Burn after reading
Very funny.

Eagle Eye
Sucked big time. It was totally unrealistic, I couldn't wait for it to end.

Babylon A.D.
This was so bad I couldn't believe it.

Righteous Kill
Like it, nice thriller.

Pride and Glory
Good NYC cop thriller.

Quantum of Solace

Der neue Bond hat mir gut gefallen. Es fängt genau da an, wo Casino Royale aufgehört hat und Daniel Craig mimt die Doppelnull für meinen Geschmack perfekt. Die Action ist solide (Kämpfe sind gut zu erkennen, änhlich wie bei den Bourne-Filmen, genau das Gegenteil vom erbärmlichen Babylon AD), die Karren schön und die Frauen schnell (den Aston Martin kostet es diesmal die Fahrertür).
