Squeeze an image/media entry in amongst the seemingly ever mounting SURP work.
From the CBC a few days back and while it is hardly an original comparison, I had to insert the images (just because I’m a Star Wars geek).
This is an eigenharp, created 2009 and not in a galaxy, far, far away. It’s the instrument that does everything…really.
Warren Miller has a new movie, Dynasty which is apparently in celebration of 60 years of mountain filmmaking. 60 years! Although, apparently WM isn’t narrating anymore. I remember being in my first year of undergrad in ‘99 and watching Warren Miller’s Fifty, which was in…well, bet you can’t guess. I used to be a big fan of WM…but realized about a year or two after Fifty that one WM film is just like another. Actually, one could probably make that assertion about any ski movie.
Of note, a scene from the Dynasty trailer takes place in Xinjiang Province， from what I’m willing to bet my left leg is Tian Chi (a place I was at in 2004) and the trailer also makes a comment about taking horses up the mountain in order to ski down. I did exactly that as well…although I don’t think the snow I found was nearly as good as what these guys had access to. Damn unlimited budgets.
Still, at the end of the day – not much different that Fifty.
