tron 30th anniversary

 

Just a quick update. I will post some pictures up soon… I promise.

Despite the fact that pre-Halloween weekend celebrations were taking place all over in Hollywood, I decided to be a nerd and go to the Tron 30th Anniversary event at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The wait outside was annoying but all and all, the event was a success. There were people in costumes, there was the Grid Carpet (as opposed to the red carpet), a panel with the film makers as well as Bruce Boxleitner (Tron/Alan Bradley), a mini exhibition of original Tron goodies and an after party upstairs with arcade games and DJs.

Ralph McQuarrie passes away at 82.

Ralph McQuarrie, the Conceptual Designer who brought R2-D2, C3PO, Darth Vader and Chewbacca into life in the visual form that we are most familiar with, passed away at the age of 82 on 3/3/2012 in his home in Berkeley, CA.

real-life tron lightcycle?


This looks pretty amazing.

The Tron “Lightcycle” was brought to life by Parker Brothers Choppers, a bike shop in Florida. The bike is currently on sale for US$55,000. I won’t go into all the specs because I hardly have any knowledge when it comes to motor vehicles (and I tried getting a manual motorcycle license!)…

But from the looks of it, the bike can’t go too fast… or is it because they’re just doing a casual show-and-tell?
I am just stating the obvious ….but I highly, highly doubt it can do the sharp turns as it’s done in the film. I can’t imagine this Lightcycle being at all comfortable to ride… but who knows?

hong kong time lords

This time lapse video is incredibly beautiful. If there were footages of food (haha) and various means of public transportation, it would definitely represent the life in Hong Kong.
