"The Iron Chef of Filmmaking"
Jin Woo Joo has a project called CinemaSports. Some of you may recall Jin's name from the credits of BYOBW. Here's the description from their site:
Cinemasports is the iron chef of filmmaking. Can different groups make a 4 minute movie in one day that includes an onion, an English teacher, and a tattoo parlor? We explore how the same ingredients inspire different creative minds.
Each cinemasports event starts with the announcement of time limits and "ingredients" and ends with a screening of results. This screening parades raw creativity by filmmakers interpreting the same constraints. The results prove entertainingly similar and inspiringly different.
Sounds like a blast...go check out the site for sure. I'm trying to wrangle the time to participate in one of the next events with a couple improv friends of mine...I'll keep you posted. e me if yer interested too.

Remember the post about the inventors of Flash, and the link went to the spongemonkeys singing "We like the moon"? (if you don't, scroll down a ways, you'll find it)
Well, last night I was flipping channels, and the spongemonkeys have been sold out to Quizno's. It seems they no longer like the moon...they now like toasted sub sandwiches. Hmmmph.

Way, way cool idea
I'm here in New Mexico visiting, and just came across an article about this outfit. They are taking used tires, and compressing them into 1 ton bales for use in construction. It turns out a tire bale has an insulation R-factor of 240! R-240! Pretty cool!
Ernest Cordova is "burning rubber" to come up with new ways to put old tires to use. His family-owned business, Cordova and Sons of Cuba, N.M., collects and recycles used tires to make bales for landscaping and building projects.
Americans discard 270 million tires each year, says the Department of Environmental Quality, a huge burden for a nation trying to put the brakes on landfills. Cordova diverts about 100 tires from the landfill with each bale he manufactures, compacting the rubber into blocks convenient for building. Using tires instead of rocks or concrete for projects saves labor, time and money, he says; moreover, "tires are beautiful and work great if you do it right."
Cordova also supplies tire bales to a new generation of tire recyclers at the Colorado School of the Mines in Colorado Springs. Engineering professor Bob Knecht says that his students have incorporated tires in their design projects for five years, and have built walls of tires that reduce highway noise five times better than any product on the market. "They work very well," he says. "Hopefully, they'll catch on."
"It's a simple way to use something that's a real pain," says Stuart Hoenig, a retired engineering professor and a tire recycling advocate. "If the tires are just laying around, they get rainwater and insects in them, and they're a fire hazard."
