Trivia

The frontpage of the Sandco & Associates website as depicted on Caleb's Laptop is showing the images of two buildings purportedly architecturally designed by Sandco & Associates.

The building in the larger image is actually a 38 floor skyscraper in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is the headquarters of the Hajj Pilgrims Fund Board or "Lembaga Tabung Haji". Its architect is Hijjas Kasturi Associates based in Malaysia.

The building in the smaller image is actually the Petronas Twin Towers in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The 88 floors twin building is the world's tallest twin towers and was the world tallest in the world from 1998 to 2004. The towers were designed by Argentine American architect César Pelli. See more »

Great film with an exceptionally positive message
3 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film Hardflip is packed with skating, an awesome and talented cast, and great music, but what really makes this film incredible is the message it carries, to let go of Fear and Pain while embracing Forgiveness and Faith. This film has the ability to resonate with many teens and Parents alike by focusing on issues that many deal with in our society. Randy Wayne, John Schneider, Rosanna Arquette, and Christopher Michael do an amazing job in this film along with featured pro-skaters Christian Hosoi and Brian Sumner. If you enjoy a film that will lift your spirits high than this film is one for your Blu-ray/DVD collection.
