Tsr Buzz: A Ryan Gosling Christmas, Welcome to Vancouveria, and a pug in a hammock

26 December 2011 10:20 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

With Tsr Buzz, you’ll find links to articles, videos and other random things that will help you waste your time just a little bit more.

Hooray! A new episode of Drunk History in time for the holidays! Only this time around it’s more like Drunk Poetry. But the presence of Ryan Gosling helps make up for that.

Drunk History Christmas with Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes from Ryan Gosling Portlandia starts again soon. But a local filmmaker made a spoof about it’s neighbor to the north. Enjoy Vancouveria.

This year, when you’re returning the gifts that didn’t quite work, remember this little girl’s advice. Just because something is pink doesn’t mean it’s just for girls! Also true of Black and Decker’s pink drills.

I love pugs. So … pug in a hammock.

Ken Russell obituary

29 November 2011 8:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Formidable film director with an impish sense of humour and a talent to entertain and provoke

Ken Russell, who has died aged 84, was so often called rude names – the wild man of British cinema, the apostle of excess, the oldest angry young man in the business – that he gave up denying it all quite early in his career. Indeed, he often seemed to court the very publicity that emphasised only the crudest assessment of his work. He gave the impression that he cared not a damn. Those who knew him better, however, knew that he did. Underneath all the showbiz bluster, he was an old softie. Or, perhaps as accurately, a talented boy who never quite grew up.

It has, of course, to be said that he was capable of almost any enormity in the careless rapture he brought to making his films. He could be dreadfully cruel to his undoubted talent, »

Ken Russell Has Left the Planet

28 November 2011 1:53 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Legendary British filmmaker Ken Russell, the notorious director famous for boundary-pushing films such as Women in Love, Altered States and The Devils, has died at 84 following a series of strokes.

For an artist who's been called an iconoclast, a maverick and a genius — one with a professed love for consciousness-altering drugs — Russell (born July 3, 1927) got his start in a fairly conventional manner. Following a stint in the service, Russell worked as a photojournalist to minor acclaim before going to work at the BBC as a director in 1959.

While at the BBC, Russell made a series of historical documentaries, still regarded as impressive for their impressionistic visual technique. This is the beginning of the flamboyant style that became synonymous with the name Ken Russell. Many of these television films focused on renowned composers, including Edward Elgar, Richard Strauss and Claude Debussy. Interestingly, this is subject matter Russell would return to often »

Irishman’s beautiful video of New Zealand’s first snowfall in decades goes viral - Video (IrishCentral)

18 August 2011 5:12 AM, PDT | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

Irish filmmaker Ro Tierney captured a truly beautiful series of images as New Zealanders experienced their first snowfall since 1976. It is played alongside Debussy’s “Claire de Lune,” and shows smiles, surprised faces, and even the sadness of a young boy who doesn’t appear to have taken a liking to the snow. In an interview with Rte, Tierney explained that he posted the video just hours after shooting it outside in the streets. "I thought it would be something quite interesting to capture,” he explained, “because it's, you know, it's not often that you can capture something where people haven't ever seen snow before." To make the video even more authentic, Tierney also claimed that no one he spoke to had ever seen snowfall before. “These people literally...you’ll see some of them in tee-shirts.” ___________ Read More Snap shot of people in Ireland - 50 people on the streets »
