Updates from Stevie

It's been a while since I've been here and written a blog, so here I am!!

Things have been going so incredibly for us recently, YM004 has been a massive success so far, on sale in THREE (yes, three) shops!!!

We told you a while back about the Youth Led Media Summit - how cool is that!! Only two weeks to go, and I'll admit, I am sliiiiiiightly panicking about what to wear - ideas please!!

Our new favourite person, JW, has been fantastic! He's designed our new website banners (on the website and the community - go look!) and he's working on something else for us, spreading a little festive YEAH magic!!

I'm kinda all out of ideas, keeping it short and sweet!!

YEAH Love

STEVE (& Errey)

Big Al's Top 20 films (in no particular order) The Big Lebowski (1998)

The Big Lebowski (1998)
"They figured he was a lazy time wasting slacker. They were right."
"Her life was in their hands. Now her toe is in the mail."
"Times like these call for a Big Lebowski."
"It takes guys as simple as the Dude and Walter to make a story this complicated... and they'd really rather be bowling."
"(Israel, translated from Hebrew): Lebowski: Not a man, a way of life"
"...Smart and silly....A burst of wicked fun..." - Rolling Stone "...The Coen brothers, those far-out FARGO guys, cover everything with eye-popping panache..." - USA Today
Written & Directed by The Coen BrothersCast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, David Huddleston, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Tara Reid, John Turturro
Focus Features
Most stories have a beginning and an end, they also usually involve the main characters, but sometimes this rule is manipulated so much that you wonder, is this really their story? Masters of the this are The Coen Brothers, writers and directors of such classics as Raising Arizona(1987) & Barton Fink (1991). Their cinema work has been hitting our screens for many years but for my favourite bit of Coen magic , we need to go back to the nineties, and meet "The Dude".
Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) is a professional slacker, he lives in Los Angeles, he enjoys bowling and has a rug that ties the room together. Life is pretty sweet for The Dude, until two gangsters mistake him for a millionaire and Pee on his rug. On consultation with his bowling team, Walter (John Goodman) & Donny (Steve Buscemi), The Dude decides to get compensation by seeing the man the thugs were looking for. He's going to see, The Big Lebowski. What The Dude didn't know is that his slacker lifestyle was about to get busy, with someone Else's work. Along the way The Dude toils with a Video Artist, an Iron Lung, A coffee mug, The Jesus, a Nihilist 80's Synth-Pop group, a Toe & a Marmot. It's OK though, The Dude Abides.
I've always loved Jeff Bridges, I think he has style but I still have no idea how he was able to bring a touch of class to a dirty, uninteresting, drug taking layabout character like The Dude. For a start, the name The Dude is hard to pull off without turning it into a cocky, comical role but Bridges allows his natural swarve to poke through a mostly introvert guise, with of course natural charm. Also on the card are such stars as John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who produces the most convincing role based on the amount of screen time he's given.
The film is indeed a laugh, obviously thanks to the brilliant script. Who wouldn't laugh at an outrageous drug trip that sees The Dude playing out an almost perverted game of bowling, with Saddam Hussein handing him his shoes? A pure delight is John Goodman's Walter Sobchak, The Dude's Bowling buddy and a supposed Vietnam Veteran, who has become such an icon that he is now on T-Shirts and various other memorabilia. Trust me, he
"don't roll on Shabbis!"
One thing that makes The Big Lebowski one of all time favourites is the impact it's had on the world. That impact being so big in fact, that there is now "Dudeism", a religion founded on the prospect of being totally and one hundred percent relaxed. It is a modern extension of Taoism, a Chinese based teaching that in one form or another through the ages has promoted being chilled. How do I know so much about this new wave religion? Well, I'm more than happy to say that I'm an officially ordained Dudeist Priest! Take a look at the website, http://www.dudeism.com
The Big Lebowski has everything you would expect from a story written by the Coen Brothers; odd romance, comic situations, a useless plot and a few surprises. What more could you want? It has style rivalling films from long forgotten eras and pushes the boundaries on taboos that are still today's news. Funny, compelling and at points sexy, The Big Lebowski made way for The Dude in our lives. Sit back, relax with a White Russian & some Creedence and take it in. Unless you're a Nihilist, for you believe in nothing.

The Swedish Lads from YM003

Whilst in Sweden, Johan and Per put on a Party for us! Well Johan Organised it to be at Per's and forgot to tell him! lol. It was an awesome party with great food, great beer and EVEN BETTER company. It was a proper good laugh.
Whilst there we realised that most of the models from Johan previous YM003 Shoot were at the party! So we had to recreate the shots with them! It had to be done!

Per, being a incredible clever engineer has created some awesome stuff over his time! One of which being an incredible Pin-hole camera! SOO cool. Watch this space on that one! But another was a homemade Ringflash, a real pro beautiful one. So we hooked it up to my hasselblad and shot away. Errey had a one or two to many to drink and couldn't focus in the low light so Stevie had to take over!
Love it.

Credit Crunch Film Reviews - 88 Minutes

88 Minutes (2007)

"Jack Gramm has eighty-eight minutes to solve a murder. His Own"

"Deborah Kara Unger makes the most sinister impression per minute of screen time" - Empire "The movie works like a charm" - Village Voice

Director - John Avnet
Writer - Gary Scott Thompson
Cast - Al Pacino, Alicia Witt, Leelee Sobieski, Amy Brenneman, Deborah Kara Unger, Neil McDonough

Millennium Pictures
Equity Pictures

Thriller is a great word, much like elongate or Toot. It flows from your mouth into the ears of all those who just happen to be listening. Even the late Michael Jackson must have known it was a great word, his most popular tune was called "Thriller". When it come to films though, Thriller turns out to be a hit or miss. I like Thrillers; it's a fantastic genre. The Ninth Gate (1999), Stigmata (1999) & North by Northwest (1959) were all very in-depth and were all indeed very Thrilling. For those who don't know what exactly a thriller is, here's a lovely definition. A thriller is a book, film, play, etc...Depicting crime, mystery or espionage in an atmosphere of excitement & suspense. I'm sure you can now name a few from memory or with the thanks of Google, but if I were to choose a credit crunch beating Thriller, 88 Minutes would be near the top of my list. Hey, I can't give you the good stuff so soon into my writing career, I have to keep something back to wow those marvellous people at Empire.

What would you do if you received a phone call saying you only had 88 minutes to live? Jack Gramm (Al Pacino) is a forensic psychiatrist and college tutor in Seattle who just happens to be in that situation. After successfully putting a murderer and rapist behind bars (Neil McDonough) 9 years ago, Jack is now under fire after a wave of copycat murders crop up all over the city. Could he have got it wrong all those years ago? Did he put an innocent man behind bars? With the rest of the force watching and his own students doubting him, can Jack save his own life. Time's running out. Tick-Toc Do...Tick-Toc.

Everybody who's anybody has heard of Mr. Al Pacino, even hermits probably know who he is. Some of them must have seen Scarface (1983) in there many years of nothing to do but wonder whether or not their life choice was a sound one. I liked Scarface but I do honestly believe that his acting talent has grown with age and now as a gentleman of the bus pass variety, he can sit back and enjoy life but he decides not to. Jack Gramm wouldn't have been such a high impact character if somebody else were behind the wheel. Pacino adds a sly yet reassuring aura to a character that is hard to work out even in the final, edge of your seat moment. Red haired firecracker Alicia Witt makes an appearance as the oddly suitable sidekick, Kim. Kim isn't the love interest, she could be very easily but it would spoil the urgency off the film, which is what makes the film so attractive.

The film has a runtime of 103 minutes, just about the perfect length for modern day attention spans. What make this so important is that the film itself contains a storyline that is 88 minutes long, which is actually very important to the speedy subplot. The time between Jack receiving the phonecall and the very end of the credits is 88 minutes. I love useless trivia.

88 Minutes brings together a concoction of fast paced crime drama and psychological mind screw. I can see the character of Jack Gramm fitting in on some sort of crime or medical drama, I would love him to appear on House M.D, Hugh Laurie and Al Pacino would make my life complete. The clichéd crime solving isn't a bore, it is loose enough to allow the classic front room favourite, "Who did it?” Trust me, it's not the easiest to work out if you don't stay on the ball.

Thriller is a great word, much like coagulate or antelope. The lonely credit crunch evenings need a bit of a thrill, especially as the winter is coming upon us fast. 88 Minutes can easily be described by the classic movie clichés...but I can't be bothered to write them. Check it out.

Big Al's Score: 8/10
