William Gibson, Google Glass by joe kendall
In 1987, Ebert’s words of encouragement made a strong impression on me, a brainy fat kid who felt less comfortable in his skin than in the darkness of a movie theater. I didn’t grow up to be a movie critic (or a journalist or an actor). But in that year, I began to feel more confident in myself as a writer. I found my voice, and in time, felt less awkward in my body.
The letter Roger Ebert send a teenage boy who aspired to be a film critic. Also see Ebert’s advice on writing and life and how Alfred Hitchcock had similar impact on a boy’s life.
Have yet to hear about an Ebert hater, not sure they exist, how could they?
n. a moment that felt innocuous at the time but ended up marking a diversion into a strange new era of your life—set in motion not by a series of jolting epiphanies but in the tiny imperceptible differences between one ordinary day and the next, until entire years of your memory can be compressed into a handful of indelible images—which prevents you from rewinding the past, but allows you to move forward without endless buffering.

CONTINUUM | Planetary Collective
CONTINUUM is a feature length documentary telling the story of where we came from, who we are, and the possibilities of our future. The film features interviews with poets and astronauts, physicists and storytellers, anthropologists and Tibetan lamas, and stunning cinematography from around the world. The many voices of the film share a unified vision: we must start acting as a planetary civilization.
I’m creating footage for this film, and it’s definitely worth investing in.

Anyway enough rambling, even though I want to ramble more. Onwards to what NG says
Moonlit Mountains, Nepal

I watched as the beautiful full moon rose at Annapurna Base Camp, lighting up the entire landscape as if it were daylight. It provided the perfect lighting for this photo as I set up my tripod and shot one of the few majestic 8,000-meter peaks on this planet, surrounded by a starry night backdrop.
