Although I wouldn't consider myself a Harry Potter fanatic, I was amused to see the newly posted "9 3/4" line at the Union Square subway yesterday. So, for all you Harry Potter enthusiasts who have dreamt about going to Hogwarts- now is your chance! If I were you, I'd head over to the Union Square subway station ASAP and hop on the train to Hogwarts before the good old MTA intervenes.

Most people have experience using Google Maps with Street View, which takes video images at street level cameras 360 degrees to allow users to traverse and recognize simple view.
Sehsucht, a Germany design company, used this idea and combined Stop Motion, 2D and 3D Animation techniques to create really fantastic motion graphics.
The Street View offers endless possibilities, once again extending the infinite utilities and special features of Google. The pieces in this video were shot in many cities like New York, Canada, Berlin, South Africa, Australia and Taipei, my home country. Showing one of the major objectives of Google - involvement worldwide.
solid video with a lot of veterans in our industry.
Gabe Liedman and Jenny Slate star in these two shorts, directed by Dean Fleicher-Camp. Not only are all three actually friends, but they exhibit the additional quirk of being genuinely nice people. Awesome, just like this new web series.

Obviously I'm on a Halloween kick at the moment...Check out this spooky video from Aesop Rock and John Darnelle directed by Ace Norton . It's a delightfully campy ode to grindhouse and gory vintage horror flicks that would surely please the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Trick or treat!
After a recommendation from a friend for something to read on travel days while I was on study abroad, I picked up the first of Steig Larsson’s Millennium series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and once I got used to the difficult Swedish names and the first couple of chapters of back-story it was an amazing read. Larsson takes you through the over 40-year-old missing person’s case, connecting the three seemingly separate story lines of the rich dysfunctional family, the disgraced journalist trying to get his credibility back and the brilliant computer hacked with the dragon tattoo.
This thriller all comes together in the last third of the book and the ending really had me surprised, which is hardly the case with most mystery thriller novels that I’ve read. At some points it is a little graphic and is also pretty dark but the story will make you keep reading if you’re the squeamish type. It’s not a new book, but if you are looking for something good to read that is well written and that has a great plot this is a must read and so is the rest of the trilogy.
Like all great books, it was made into a movie in 2009 by a Danish filmmaker, but Hollywood is doing their own version set to come out in 2011 with Daniel Craig playing the lead.
Shout out to my friends Sophia and Dan, friends/actors that took part in this cool campaign by Cannon. "Your Second Shot" campaign is an ongoing project to help recreate and recapture lost moments.
