Here’s a video I chopped together of Century City, CA late at night. The first clip is from the gorgeously remodeled mall, which all locals should check out, and the others are shot from the bridge crossing over Olympic Blvd.
My first video edited in Final Cut Pro 7! There is a small learning curve, but after a couple hours of poking around I got the hang of it. Very sweet editing platform… I liiiiiike! Though I’m not a videographer or editor, I can say the software seems quite robust.
I was watching Pawn Stars a few hours ago and was surprised to see Russian launch keys being featured. How cool is that?! The keys were initially thought to have been used for launching Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), but it turns out they were actually used for launching spacecraft.
The Dub Show this year was a blast! Lots of cool cars, music and interesting people. I always love seeing the latest and greatest tricked out rides (or shall I say “built” rides because I’m a Cobra owner).
I was recently informed that Bimmerfest 2010 will be held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA this year, which is awesome news! I have attended the event for 5+ years and the drive to Santa Barbara always – simply said – sucked. I enjoy the drive, but I would usually arrive at around 6am to setup and I am not a morning person. Since Pasadena is about 30 minutes from where I live (near Hancock Park), I’m ecstatic to gain an hour of sleep.
The green trend has not only touched areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and New York — Minnesota and Iowa residents are jumping aboard as well. In fact, there has been an overwhelming response to appliance rebates that are being offered for Energy Star rated appliances.
