Film Project – Chosen by Alison
Interview Project by David Lynch

David Lynch's Interview Project is a film crew traveling across the US interviewing the people they find as they go from place to place. For a year an interview will be released every 3 days (they've got to number 24 so far) -Each interview begins with a slightly eerie Introduction from David Lynch that reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, but the interviews themselves are strange and often quite heartwarming.

Calling all 'Zombies', If you're going to The Big Chill this weekend look out for the deliciously funny Noel Fielding and join him in his attempt to break "mass participation zombie movie" records. He needs you as an extra in his upcoming apocalyptic film, 'I Spit on Your Rave'!

Event – Chosen by Alison
Heavy Pencil at the ICA

Heavy Pencil is a free night at the ICA bar where an illustrator draws live along to music of their own choosing while their process is projected onto a large screen for us to watch. This Friday at 8pm, it's Sac Magique who describes himself as liking 'to draw grotesques with lumps and protuberances'.

All Japanese All The Time

A friend of mine recently found this blog and it has changed his life. Written by multi-linguist Khatzumoto it describes how the blogger learned Japanese in 18 months by playing a personal game where he acted as if he had to pretend he was Japanese because if secret services found out he wasn't they would kill him. My friend insists that it is wonderful for learning hints and tips in being more motivated about your goals... if your goals include learning Japanese then it'll be even more of a helpful read.
