2012 FAVORITE GIFT: RETRO HANDSET

RETRO HANDSET BY ECHO LOGICO

My favorite gift of 2012 is ECHO LOGICO‘s retro handset.   It is cute, clever, and inexpensive; it’s a cute little gift or great prop.  I gave my mom a white handset for her white iPhone 4S (pictured below) and she LOVES IT!

Wes Anderson and Brad Pitt

Wes Anderson’s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, is now showing in limited release NOWHERE near me, DRATS!  Cinematic frustration has left me scouring the web for all things Wes Anderson hoping to find an obscure, secret handshake venue releasing the film in the southeast.  It is Wes Anderson, it COULD happen.  During my on-line reconnaissance, I ran across this little commercial gem from 2008.  Anderson teamed up with Brad Pitt for SoftBank, a Japanese mobile communications company. The commercial takes inspiration from Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot. Anderson filmed Pitt in one continuous shot at a French seaside town.
