Just a year earlier I was in Montreal specifically to see him live, he was so brilliant that I drove 10 hours for the experience. He was the Jordan/Messi/Gretzsky/Bolt of racing. Best driver ever.

Exit Thru the Gift Shop is top notch. Everyone who sees it loves it.

Senna is unbelievable and moving

In 1972, while the vietnam conflict was in progress, a photo circulated around the world that is now iconic for its depiction of the horrors of war.

 

Associated Press photographer Nick Ut on June 8, 1972, near Trang Bang in South Vietnam.  The photo shows children fleeing in terror, with the focus on nine-year-old Phan Thi Kim Phuc, in the center, who ripped off her burning clothes after she was splashed by napalm.  There was a brief editorial debate about whether to print a photo involving nudity, but it was subsequently published all over the world the next day.

I went to school with 'Mike Bonanno'. One of his earliest stunts (pre Yes Men), while we were still in school, called attention to the local debate over renaming a street Martin Luther King Blvd. As is frequently the case, they had chose an ugly road that ran through a semi-industrial area. Mike printed up a bunch of street signs reading "Malcolm X Blvd" and temporarily renamed a major downtown street instead.

I got a kick out of this doc. Best part is how some people approach them after the stunts with business cards, etc.

What are you talking about, Bigfoot has been filmed hundreds of times. Granted, no remains have ever been discovered, unlike the Giant Squid, but still...
