More than any other major web service, Tumblr has a symbiotic relationship with its users.
Bruce Lee had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile]. So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.” I said, “Bruce, I can’t go five. I’m a helluva lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.” He said, “When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do it.” I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.” So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” –and we’re still running-”if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”
One Night at The Aristo aka Film Three in our Beat series - is now finished and will be screening to the public for the first time at The 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
The film - based on a short story by William S Burroughs - has been our most challenging so far.
Filming took place in the UK and North Africa, we had the largest cast to date and some long and tricky dialogue scenes to film, we had to build our most extravagant set so far which involved a jazz band playing live songs specially written for the film and post production was a challenge as we attempted to use a bank of old VHS machines to create some extraordinary visuals.
14167 Films would like to say thank you to the cast and crew for all of their work on the film.
Buy us time and we will crowdsource $3.3 billion. Your masterpiece is worth more than a billion in cash. It’s worth more than all these dinosaurs combined. Plus, I would gladly pay a monthly/yearly fee. Yahoo is shit, Disney and Viacom are shit. Facebook is shit. Why was this not proposed to core users?

When Old Media™ thinks it can buy it’s way back into cultural relevance
Paris born artist Cédric Le Borgne invites everyone to view daily life in a fresh way, to rise up, to dream. By abolishing barriers, his work of exploring spaces is sensitive, his poetry subtly interacts with each place it comments upon. From sculptures made of chicken wire to photo or video, from perennial installations to spontaneous performance, from street-art to web-art, his work is free of formal constraints.
