“Exit Through The Gift Shop”

exit-through-gift-shop

I watched this a while ago, but was for some reason reminded of it today when i saw an article about Banksy.  Most people have seen Banksy’s work somewhere at some time either in person or online or on a record cover…and didn’t even know it.  Whatever you think of him, he is definitely iconic!  This documentary is less about Banksy, and more about the scene around him and prominently the french guy who tried to make a documentary about Banksy! ha.

90 minutes well spent watching this though! HIGHLY recommended!

Watch Le Mans 2013! (updated)

R18 etron 2013

Need a place to watch Le Mans 2013?? Every year I put up the links I am using to watch Le Mans.  The greatest race in the world is back……on one side of my mind, I have an Audi Sport flag waving and on the other side I have a blue Alpine flag waving for LMP2.  Either way….this is the motor racing event of the year and definitely worth watching.

Here are some links to watch, listen, and follow (these will be updated throughout the next 24 hours).  Please feel free to make any suggestions to other good sources.

EUROSPORT <——- superb link, British Eurosport in with English commentary

EUROSPORT #2 (also British Eurosport, thank you Ricardo for the link!)

ACO Le Mans

24-LeMans.com 

Listen to fantastically detailed commenting at Radio Le Mans

LIVE TIMING via WEC! the best way to follow what’s going on with the positions, as well as interviews and videos

Audi Sport, onboard the R18s with Radio Le Mans commentary

My suggestion? find a video feed you like—and turn on Radio Le Mans and mute the video.

Go Alpine! Go Audi!

Vortex Rikers.

I’ve been listening to this quite a bit while I get my work done.  Really fantastic stuff.  Made even better by the fact that you can download much of their stuff quite easily (and freely most of the time at the link below).   Really love their artwork as well; entirely adds to the listening experience.  They are from Germany.

download Vortex Rikers records at their Bandcamp

Nurburgring 24 Hours is underway. Watch LIVE online.

There are several sites streaming the Nurburgring 24 Hour race, but they are all using the same live German feed—-however i am disturbed that they play awful music in the background during the race, alternating with german commentary….which is present on ALL the feeds i’ve looked at, including the official one.  Those crazy germans….WHY in the world is the original broadcast playing that rubbish music!? I haven’t a clue…”Radio Nurburgring”? really?

But either way, i can’t complain—–as the full 24 hours is available for FREE online streaming.

Google & BBC working on international iPlayer?

clarkson_iplayer

Why do we care? Because F1 races are broadcasted live in BBCs iPlayer.  The problem currently is that outside of the UK, it is very difficult to gain access to UK-only, restricted programming.  

Could this mean, that it might be possible for people to watch BBC broadcasting of F1 over BBC instead of the dismal, depressing SPEED channel broadcasts?  I’d say chances are slim that the BBC will screw SPEED over, but hey if they do i’m sure there will be plenty of US F1 fans cheering!

FREE Victory By Design: Making Of @ Apple iTunes

decadenet

I was rolling through Apple’s iTunes store today and noticed that a 20+ minute video outlining the Victory By Design series showing how the series is filmed and put together is available for a free download!

Firstly, this is a GREAT series. The cars they test and talk about are simply stunning. Alain De Cadenet is obviously very into these cars as well, and really exercises them through some beautiful mountain roads in the VBD series.

Apple iTunes is selling the various episodes from the series in their store for $15 a pop (much cheaper than the $26 they cost on DVD and more expensive than the $0 it costs on torrents)—however it might be worth it to get those episodes in high quality vs. the crappy quality versions found on torrents.

For now though, make sure you head over to iTunes and get the FREE Victory By Design: The Making Of in your library. The video is superb! Not alot of talking, but interesting insights into the show and most of all, some amazing footage of some amazing cars.
